Why choose me?

Update 6/6 & 6/7: River has been treated for heartworms (received immiticide shots)! She will be on crate rest for the next month–please wish this sweet girl well as she recovers!

Update 4/5: Unfortunately, River has tested positive for heartworms. While Athenspets will do our best to help with the cost of her treatment, an adopter or rescue needs to be prepared for the cost and exercise restrictions that come with it. For more information about heartworms, including the treatment, please go to the American Heartworm Society’s webpage.

Update 3/28: Thanks to donations to the Spay/Neuter Fund, River is spayed and up-to-date on her basic vaccinations!

River is the queen of all toys and especially loves any that squeak! She’ll play fetch until you stop throwing, and when that’s over, she’ll entertain herself. She’s a girl on the move but is happy to make time for treats and pets and joined me on the picnic table to enjoy both. As much as River likes treats, they’re still a distant second to toys. Come meet this sweet, fun beauty. She’s always ready for good times and would fit right in with an active family!
