We are a few dedicated individuals who have formed Adopt-A-Stray in order to save many adoptable pets that would otherwise be euthanized in the shelters in our area. We routinely pull dogs and cats from the euthanasia list, as well as take in strays and owner surrenders as space allows.

Meet Apollo

Friendly, loving, and sweet are the 3 words I would choose to describe Apollo. This handsome poodle was taken in as a stray, with many bite wounds on his bum, as if he were bit by another dog as he was trying to run away. Apollo had no interest in fighting with anyone- he just wants to be friends with everyone he meets. His owner was never found and he was in terrible shape with his hair completely matted to his skin and all those bite wounds. He's been in rescue for a couple months now and those wounds have healed, his hair has grown out a little after he had to be shaved, we have had him neutered and brought up to date on shots. He is ready for a home of his own! Apollo's ideal home would be one with a family who will play with him and give him plenty of mental and physical stimulation. He is not hyper, but he is young and energetic. We believe he is about 10 months old. We believe he is a standard poodle, but he could also be a doodle of some variety. He has a very curly coat, but has a full tail which is unusual for a poodle. His coat is beautiful- it is stark white. This sweet guy is the whole package. He attaches to his people and bonds hard, as you can see in the photos of him hugging his foster mama. He would benefit from some training to learn better manners, but everything he does is out of love. He is smart and will pick up on new concepts easily, as most poodles. He is house and crate trained and gets along well with other dogs, cats, and he loves kids.
