ABOUT LAZARO:
Lazaro’s story to this point has been a sad one. You can tell he has had a hard life because he has scars on his head and one back leg is short so he gets around really well on three legs.

When our Homeward Trails Executive Director (Sue) went to Puerto Rico a few weeks ago, she went to the hoarding property where Lazaro was kept. She saw him chained up on this giant, heavy chain with dogs roaming all around him. He was in really, really bad shape- one of the rescuers who was with her said that they should just put him down, but Sue thought that if we could just get him off that chain and out of the really hot sun and mud, that he might have a chance. He was a very, very sad sight so she made a priority for him to be one of the first dogs we got out of the hoarder’s place (over 120 dogs on the property).

Now Lazaro’s luck has changed! He has come to Virginia and been living with a loving foster who is giving him lots of love and attention. And the amazing thing is that despite all he has been through, Lazaro is still a sweet dog who gets along well with people and with other, non-aggressive dogs. He seems to want to play with the cat in his foster home, but does not understand the difference between dog play and cat play, so he would do best in a home without cats.

Can you be the next chapter in Lazaro’s life and give him a happy ending in a forever home where he is loved and well-cared-for? Please ask to meet Lazaro. He will touch your heart.

as you see fit:

Piper and Molly are a bonded pair that were surrendered to a rural open admissions animal shelter after their owner died. The two were in pretty rough shape, with badly overgrown nails, mobility constraints, and skin infections. HTAR pulled them from the shelter hoping to find a loving home here in the DC metro that was willing to take both, as a package, but we haven’t yet found that home looking for both a Big and Little. We hate to break them up — both girls are really easy members of the household and just want love and soft dog beds.

Piper is a 75-lb terrier mix who LOOOOOOVES people of all sizes. Don’t let her deep baritone fool you — she’s a total lovebug. She maneuvers her head to be petted and will grumble and vocalize when you stop. She also loves to go on walks — stairs are tough (she’d prefer single-level living) but leisurely neighborhood and beach walks are her thing. She’s done very well meeting dogs at our adoption events, so could probably be integrated into a home with other mellow dogs (shhhh … don’t tell Molly). She likes to lounge on low-slung couches, if permitted, and sleeps on a dog bed on the floor next to the foster at night. On workdays the two are confined to a large airy laundry room with lots of bedding — but given her impeccable house manners, she’s probably do just fine with the run of the house. She’s a low maintenance sweetheart who would fit into many types of households.

The girls are really easy members of the household and just want love and soft dog beds.

My name is Sugar. Someone really knew what they were doing when they named me Sugar as I am a very sweet three year old mixed breed dog. I’m looking for my perfect forever family.

I’m a true southern girl. Not too long ago I was in Texas but came to Virginia after Hurricane Harvey. Right now I live in an apartment in Alexandria where I meet lots of new people every day on the street, in the hallways and in the elevator. Lots of people stop my foster “dad” to say what a pretty girl I am.

I’m also sharp as can be. I know basic commands and will happily sit and give you my paw for a shake. I’m happy to do that cause I love people. And if you have a treat for me, all the better. I’m fond of long walks when I can meet lots of nice people and dogs and am told I really know my leash manners.

My apartment is really nice and I keep it that way since I am both house trained and crate trained. I am a big girl though with a lot of energy and really want a house with a yard to play in, especially one with adults and older teens.

Out of my home, I am full of energy but inside my favorite activity is snoozing on the couch and on my foster’s lap. I also like to toss my kong around and play with my rope toy. You can see me playing with it at this link: https://youtu.be/q2Uktaz8kAQ

If you take me home I promise to snooze on your lap until your legs go numb and be your companion on lots of walks.

Casey and Rusty would be wonderful additions to your household if you are looking for some companions to greet you with tail wags and kisses, go for walks, and snuggle on the couch. These bonded brothers are timid at first, but they cannot wait to give you all their love once they feel safe and secure. These two have had a rough year, in January they were abandoned at a vet’s office in southern Virginia, in February they were adopted by an amazing family until a tragic accident in May made them unable to care for the dogs and they were returned to the rescue.

These two boys are sweet, healthy and happy! They are playful with each other, enjoy toys and treats, and absolutely love to cuddle with people. Currently they are in a foster home and they cannot wait to enjoy the summer in their loving forever home! Please fill out an application, these dogs will bring so much joy to their new home.
