About Scout

Adoption Fee: $100

Meet Scout!  She has recently discovered sleeping in bed with her foster parents.  She sleeps by their side hoping they will roll over and give her some pets.  This little lady had a rough start (being born outside, living under a porch, and having a litter of kittens before her first birthday), but over the past 7 months, in two foster homes, she has decided that she quite likes the housecat lifestyle. Scout is very shy at first, but will warm up fairly quickly. She is very, very food-motivated; treats are definitely the key to this girl’s heart. She is also very active and playful. She really wants to snuggle and play with my two cats, but when they aren't interested, she entertains herself.  She seems to really enjoy the kittens that have passed through her foster homes.  Any toy with feathers on it is her favorite! Scout was very quiet when she first came to us but recently has been vocalizing a lot - she will serenade you in the kitchen as you prepare food, and she cheerfully chirps at the other cats and her toys when she’s feeling frisky.  A household with one or more friendly cats and a human who won’t expect too much lap time initially would be a good fit although she is getting better and better about being picked up and set in a lap and is starting to really appreciate it. Scout is a sweet, sweet kitty who deserves a safe and happy home!  Apply to adopt to schedule a meet and greet with Scout.  She will also be attending the adoption event on Wednesday, 6-8pm and Saturday, 12-4pm and at our bonus event on Sunday, 6/26, 12-3pm.

Scout is spayed, current on vaccines, has been microchipped, FELV/FIV tested negative, been given dewormer and monthly flea preventatitve.

Attention: This is a courtesy posting only! This pet is NOT available through Mountain Pet Rescue.  Please do NOT contact MPR for information about the pet or apply to adopt this pet on the MPR website.  Contact for more information or to adopt the pet. I have had Atticus since he was 6 weeks old, and he recently turned 3 on March 31st. He is a 70 lb LabraDane, and is the most vibrant, dynamic, stubborn & intelligent dog I’ve ever crossed paths with. I consider myself lucky to have been his momma thus far. He is very energetic, loving, loyal, happy, anxious, excited, and smart. Atticus LOVES to swim, run, hike, go on walks, ride in the car, and just be with people in general. He is a huge lover and has never exhibited aggression towards humans before. He can become territorial with his food. He is very food-driven and easy to train, especially with treats handy. Atticus is crate trained, and I have in the past let him roam free in the house when at work for a full day, as he is not destructive (unless a trash can is in his reach) and he is fully house trained. He has been house and crate trained. Leash walking is somewhat complicated, as he knows what is expected of him, though he struggles containing his anxiety and excitement of meeting other dogs and requires his attention to be redirected. I waited until he was about a year and a half old to have him neutered. Up to the point of neutering him, I prioritized socializing him with other dogs and never had issues with aggression. When walking on the leash, it initially seems as though he is very excited to meet and greet other dogs. Though upon getting closer, he will bark and attempt to lunge at other dogs, despite not doing this with every dog. It is seemingly males he has a primary issue with, and acts as though the protection of who he is with is being threatened. He IS able to acclimate to most dogs *off-leash* after a brief introductory period, though still occasionally has issues with male dogs, perhaps intact males. On the subject of anxiety, Atticus has exhibited separation anxiety since he was a pup. Though it has gotten significantly better over time, it’s still existent, though manageable. He takes Fluoxetine (Prozac) on a daily basis, and has for about 1.5 years now, which helps his anxiety/hyperactivity levels TREMENDOUSLY. He has skin allergies for which I do not know the culprit. The only medication I have found to work effectively for him is Apoquel, which he takes ½ tablet/day for and works VERY well for his allergies. They are virtually nonexistent when consistently on the medication. Atticus has had Lyme’s Disease twice now from tick bites, so a flea/tick preventative is essential for him. Seresto collars work wonders for him. Atticus’ ideal new owner and living situation would be someone who has owned large dogs before and understands the importance of catering to high-maintenance and high-energy dogs that require more attention. Someone who is able to engage with Atticus and stimulate his need to play. He needs a LOT of space to run outside, and to explore in general. Someone who works minimally, works from home, is retired, or could take him into the office is ideal, though Atticus is capable of staying home alone for periods of time. He has never lived with small children, though has been good with kids. He is very strong and hyper, so I would recommend households with children at least 10 years old. It is possible for Atticus to live with other dogs, though we would need to meet several times beforehand to ensure this possibility. Atticus thrives best in a stable living environment with ample outdoor time. Atticus is a beautiful soul and having him in my life has been enriching in many regards, and I know he will have the same effect on the right person. He has taught me many valuable lessons on patience and what it means to unconditionally love and care for another being. I request only serious inquiries and will require meeting several times, a house check, a trial period, and a small rehoming fee to ensure the right placement for Atticus. My primary goal is to find the perfect home for Atticus in which he will live out the rest of his days happy and peacefully just as he deserves. Atticus is up to date on vaccinations, fecal testing, and has been neutered & microchipped and has all necessary records. Contact me today at to learn more about Atticus! show less

Slim, beautiful tortie Begonia was a perfect, protective young mother to her five babies, all of which found loving homes. She is a witchy-looking patchwork cat with the hugest yellow-green eyes, and a slender build at around 7 pounds--a perfect Halloween kitty wearing pumpkin-colored socks on her back feet. Begonia might be happiest in a home with no other pets. In foster, she disliked dogs and other cats. Though she was still in protective mama mode, her foster's best guess is that she wants a peaceful home with no other cats, or only one other pet, and lots of peace and quiet. She purrs constantly, loves to be petted everywhere (careful with the tum-tum), and especially loves a good hard ear rub, so much it makes her drool. She is also very interested in watching birds at feeders, and has finally learned not to throw herself bodily at the window glass. Her cutest habit may be her "morning stretch" -- she will stretch her long, slim body along the closest wall as both a morning and after-work greeting, and as a gentle ask for pets and head rubs. Begonia has a history of being slightly nippy when underfoot, and is probably a better fit for a home with only adults, or kids over 10 years who know how to be patient and gentle with cats. She can also be picky about her food -- her adopter is welcome to contact Begonia's Mountain Pet Rescue foster family for details of her likes and dislikes. Begonia is waiting to meet you at Thrift Hound, 234 New Leicester Hwy, 10-5, Mon-Sat.  She is spayed, current on vaccines, has been microchipped, FELV/FIV tested negative, been given dewormer and monthly flea preventatitve. show less
