Elvis is a 9-month-old black Lab that weighs 60lbs. He has been wandering around as a stray and is being taken care of by people in the neighborhood. They said that he is dog friendly, kid friendly, and has a precious demeanor. He enjoys playing fetch and keeps crying to come inside.
Elvis is eligible for our Direct Adoption Program. This program is for MLRR Approved Adopters interested in puppies less than 1 year old, dogs over 7 years old and medical case dogs, including dogs that test positive for heartworm. An Approved Adopter takes ownership of the dog for a 2-week wellness period. That time is extended for dogs with extensive medical needs (like heartworm) since treatment times are typically longer. During the wellness period, MLRR covers all medical expenses. Once the treatment is completed, the adoption is finalized.
