Hi, I’m Katie. I’ve been in a shelter or fostering for more than half my young life! I was abandoned when I was only a puppy!! I am only 20 months old! My foster experiences have been full of friends, family, cats, dogs, and more, but this pretty female shepherd-hound mix is not home yet!
Please consider me as your forever dog! I am healthy, lively, strong, sweet, playful, and the best guard dog on the block. Everyone says Katie has great ears. Yes, I do, and they don’t just mean that I have a cute face. I will proudly protect you forever. I am recommended for a family (without or with kids over 12) who enjoy walks, exercise and cuddling. I love beds and couches but I am also crate trained. I head into the crate bed sometimes on my own volition. I am a shiny, medium length furred, 61 pound, spayed, up to date on all shots - girl! I know all my basic obedience commands. I even have a diploma from my class! They say I am perfect for a home with a fenced in backyard as your only dog (or as a companion to a dog about my own age and size) - plus any amount of cats – ( I live with 12 cats now.) I really want to be your good girl! So please apply to adopt me now – visit www.peace4paws.org to fill out an application - or share my story online for me so I am home soon!! Are you finally ready, my forever family? I can’t wait to love you!
Meet Oreo – our foster with the most combined enthusiasm, affection and intelligence to date!
Oreo is as sweet as his name and he is very smart! Oreo is a young adult, male Austrailan Shepherd/Blue Heeler/Blue Catahoula mix at a sleek 44 pounds. He loves to immerse himself in toys and spin them around for you! He is a confidant boy that is not afraid of men or babies crying like some timid dogs. Not Oreo, he is a lover and a performer! He loves to be hugged. He just wants to be a part of the pack. Oreo also loves having room to roam and frolic. He loves having a backyard to patrol for squirrels or for the opportunity to play with the neighbor’s dog through the fence. He likes playdates even better. He is fostered with four other dogs and he interacts with each of them differently. He’s delicate to the seniors, snuggles with the snuggler and spars with the active young adult dogs. Oreo is a young adult dog – somewhere between age 1.5 and age 4 we are not sure, but he is as energetic as a puppy. He would love nothing more than to go jogging, hiking, or playdating all day long interspersed with some deep naps. He is equally comfortable in a crate, a dog bed, the floor beside you. He is in great health. Neutered and up to date on all his shots. He will make a great new addition to any family. He would be a real confidence builder to a family who has an unconfident dog, because he is smart and obedient. He also can set a good example in obedience because he is very skilled at sit, paw, down, roll over, belly rubs, stay, go in your crate, or kiss. We wish to place him in a home where there is a fenced in backyard and a brother or a sister dog such as a beagle as a companion dog because he loves to hunt. He is a great all around dog that can’t wait finally connect with you forever home when you are ready! He is ready to love you forever!

Our Ultimate Goal
A peaceful, natural, and happy home for every animal, including the animals retired from use in research and related fields.
We are a foster group who work to rehome the animals retired from work in research and related fields.
We also support sanctuaries like the Kindness Ranch.
We do student outreach.
We work with volunteers to organize events that:
Raise awareness for the necessity of permanent sanctuary and forever homes for animals retired from work in research and related fields through fundraising, student outreach and related activities.
We also foster retired research beagles that have come to us from the Kindness Ranch and other sanctuaries who worked in cooperation with laboratories and help those beagles find "furever" homes.
