Rescue/Shelter Description

APET (Adopt a Pet at Edwards Team) Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)3 animal rescue located on Edwards, AFB in Southern California. We have been up an running since 2002, helping animals all over the Antelope Valley. Our rescue was originally opened to service our military members when they would deploy or PCS and could not take their pet(s) with them. Our rescue has expanded so much more than that and now we service families throughout the Antelope Valley by educating and reducing the number of unwanted pets. We work with other rescue groups, trainers, and local animal shelters on our common goal to reduce homeless pet population and save the lives of animals.

Blackstone is a sweet, goofy boy with a crooked smile and a huge heart.  He and his sister (Bloodstone) have been in shelter life for almost a year and are more than ready to find a forever home and a family to play with! Blackstone loves to play with rope toys, wrestle with his sister, and get all the belly rubs in the world.  He will need a family that can provide patience, plenty of exercise/play, and some additional training, to learn commands AND remember how to live with a family again!  He generally walks well on harness/leash, with just the occasional pull.  Blackstone is very affectionate, offering gentle kisses and also jumping up to give "hugs" in greeting. This handsome pup has a luxurious shepherd coat (which does shed) and a goofy smile. His upper jaw is crooked (either a birth defect or a puppy injury), but it does not slow him down!  He eats and plays normally and has no discomfort - regular wellness visits with a veterinarian, including dental care, would be enough to monitor his mouth for any problems down the road. Due to his high energy, Bloodstone might not do well with cats but would likely enjoy living with older children, who can safely walk/play with him. He would love to go to a new home with his sister but might also do well solo, in the right home. show less

Bubba and Tiger are a handsome, calm pair of gentlemen looking for a forever home!  They nap the day away when there's nothing happening, but this duo are two of the cuddliest cats you will ever meet.  They will accompany you around the home, Bubba gives gentle taps with a paw for attention, and Tiger gives the occasional love nip.  These two are a tightly bonded pair and must be adopted/kept together Bubba (grey tabby) has a condition called hyperthyroidism, which means his thyroid gland makes too many hormones that affect other organs.  He is being treated with a pill, once per day, which he takes very easily and will need for the rest of his life.  Cats being treated for hyperthyoidism can live long, happy lives on this medication, with vet visits 1-2 times per year to monitor the condition. Tiger (grey/brown tabby) does not have any known medical conditions, other than putting on a bit of weight eating Bubba's food.  He enjoys playing with ping-pong balls and getting them stuck behind furniture. This duo would do well in a low or moderate activity home, and they would likely get along with other cats, dogs, or children - as long as they have a quiet place to nap when they need space!  Because of Bubba's condition, a reliable schedule would be preferred, to make sure he receives his medication at the same time each day. If you are interested in calm, quiet, sweet, social, and loyal adult cats, Bubba and Tiger are the pair for you! show less
