Rose of Delaware

Rose of Delaware

Rose is a beautiful 9 year old English Mastiff that has really had a rough go of it.  It seems as if Rose has been let down so many times throughout her life, but no matter what, her beauty and resilience continue to shine through.  She came to us in May, 2019, when we received an urgent plea from a shelter in Delaware that didn't have the room for Rose.  We hope that Rose had a good family at some point, but it looks like that was a long time ago.  Rose was extremely neglected when she arrived and suffered with pneumonia, debilitating arthritis, and untreated hypothyroidism.  

She spent a good deal of time under medical care and now, Rose is like a new girl.  She is a laid-back lady that enjoys leisurely strolls with friends, plenty of attention, and lots of bellyrubs.  She is such a sweet, gentle giant that adores people.  She's been added to our Share A Pet program to get a little extra attention while she awaits her forever home.

We established the Share-A-Pet Program in February 1978 to save the lives of a number of dogs and cats who, for various reasons, were in special need of a “New Leash on Life.” The animals are selected by the Society staff from among those at our Animal Care Centers which the Society considers unadoptable due to age, handicap, medical problems, abuse, length of stay, etc. All Share-A-Pet sponsors through our web site will receive via e-mail the Society’s publication, the HUMANE NEWS, plus every four months, a color photo of each dog or cat they are sponsoring and a letter telling about the health and activities of the animal. All sponsors will also receive a Share-A-Pet membership card, which entitles you to free admission to Popcorn Park Zoo for the duration of your sponsorship. Please note: Should funds for one animal exceed the cost of its care, they are applied to all cats and dogs in need on the Share-A-Pet Program.

The following services are available at the Forked River Shelter: - Adoption and surrender of cats, dogs and small animals seven days a week. - Radio-dispatched ambulances on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. - Popcorn Park Animal Clinic, a modern Medical Dept, staffed by licensed veterinarians to treat and care for privately owned animals and shelter animals. - Spay/Neuter services. - Animal Haven Farm and Kitty City - the homes of our Share-A-Pet dogs and cats. - Home of Popcorn Park, a 7 acre refuge providing a permanent home for injured, ill, handicapped, abandoned, abused and exploited wildlife, birds, exotic and farm animals. - Humane Education programs and tours.
