About Heather

Adoption Fee: $150

Heather is a cute, fun and feisty girl, who loves taking grooming lessons from her mom as much as she loves wrestling with her brothers. She adores pets and neck skritches, and has a loud purr, but she can only sit still for a little while when you pick her up. She needs a home with a high energy playmate, and a patient owner who will let her get comfortable at her own pace.

Get $100 off the combined adoption fee when adopting a pair of kittens.  All cats and kittens have been spayed/neutered, FELV/FIV tested, microchipped, vaccinated (whatever they can have in the period they are in our care, some will still need additional vaccines after adoption), given dewormer and flea preventative and provided care for any known illnesses during their time with us.

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
