Badger is an adult Australian Shepherd mix with the longest eyebrows you’re ever likely to see on a dog. Badger was found as a stray roaming the streets of Little Rock. He was hungry, tired, and in need of some care and attention. Animal Services made short work of catching poor old Badger, and it was off to the shelter for some basic care, a good meal, and a clean cool drink.
Even though the conditions at the shelter are a big improvement over the unknown of being a stray on the streets, there still remains the very real and dangerous possibility of contracting a life threatening disease in the shelter. Shelter staff make extraordinary efforts steps to prevent the spread of disease, but the danger of contracting a life threatening disease remains, especially for the weak and starved dogs that are rescued.
While at the shelter, Badger was given some basic medical attention, and was then sent to the DogsOnly Rescue and Rehab program in Little Rock where he can get not only all the good food, water, and medical attention he needed, but also have room to run and play with other dogs in safe comfortable and secure surroundings.
An adoption fee applies which covers all necessary vet care to include: spay or neuter (mandatory - no exceptions), rabies, micro-chipping and registration, all vaccinations (including all puppy shots, rabies, adult boosters and Bordatella), grooming, Frontline for flea/tick preventative, heartworm check if age appropriate and preventative, collar and 50% of basic training classes.
To learn more about Badger you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or complete an online adoption application by clicking the orange colored text links at the top or bottom ofthis page. We always try and answer all emails within 24 hours. All of our young and adult dogs require a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process. This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times. You can also meet Badger and find out for yourself how wonderful she is at the DogsOnly adoption showings.

All of our foster
homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most
are also housetrained. None of our foster homes have cats, so we can
only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats..
We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found. We rely solely on donations and are a 501(c)3 Humane Society. The only support we receive is from donations from the general public.
Thank you for your interest in rescue and in saving the life of a dog. Every day in the United States, 11,000 dogs die.
