Meet Tyson, our one and a half-year-old brindle ball of fire. Although he has spent half of his young life with our friends at the Warwick Animal Shelter, he hasn't let his time in the shelter damper his spirit one bit. He's silly, endearing, loves every person he meets, and ALWAYS down for a good time. Tyson's incredibly smart and has his basic commands down pat. He's working hard at learning to mind his manners through training with his Shelter Enrichment Specialist and by attending Pits and Pals C.L.A.S.S. each Saturday. Still a puppy at heart and brimming with goofy energy, Tyson is best suited for a grown up household (adults and older children). He does have to be the only pet, but with everything that this boy has to offer, we can guarantee that he's all you'll ever need. If you would like to know more about the amazing Tyson, please contact his Shelter Enrichment Specialist, Sara, at saracaitlin@gmail.com or you can fill out an application at handsomedansrescue.org

Feast your eyes on fun-loving Toona! We were first drawn to Toona because of his unusual underbite. It makes him irresistibly adorable!

Nine Year Old Sleepa is one of a kind! He has the most adorable little grunt to show when he is happy or content. Sleepa lived in a home with several kids, and a small dog. He was picked up as a stray way to many times and finally the shelter director decided to keep him at the shelter. We are told that Sleepa can sometimes be possessive of his toys, though he has never shown this with someone he knows well. If you are looking for a sweet and unique looking older gentleman, look no further! Sleepa is a resident of the Warwick Shelter.

  • Domestic Medium Hair-black

We are relieved to introduce our latest "pit bull type cat" 15-year-old Coraline. Coraline's owner was hospitalized a while back and her health and mood had declined dramatically over her time at the shelter. Last week, with Nicole and Shelby's help, Mama took her to one of our partner vets to see what could be done for this sweet down-on-her-luck senior. In some ways we were pleasantly surprised! Although not wanting to eat, Coraline's teeth are not in bad shape for a kitty of her age. We were worried she had some pain in her mouth that made it difficult for her to eat. So bloodwork and urine were run, the vet shaved down her mats to find a severely underweight and delicate little lady. Coraline came home to my house for the night while we waited for test results. Coraline is friendly and vocal and not at all shy. We enjoyed her overnight visit but the next day we moved her to Trisha's house, who is much more experienced with medical cats. Test results showed a bacterial infection in her urine, a UTI, and low thyroid. All fixable and manageable. So back to the vet she went for some antibiotics and an appetite stimulant. She was not eating and we started to worry - she does not have much reserve and we didn't know how long we could keep her comfortable if she would not eat! We worried. We waited. Then Saturday, after a huge buffet of choices, Coraline finally began to eat! It was the cut up rotisserie chicken that did the trick, and we are sure the appetite stimulant helped. Handsome Dan's Rescue Foster Parents, Amanda and Dan, offered to bring Coraline into her home, so tonight she will move to their house, now that she is on the right track. Once we are sure she is out of the woods, we will begin to search for her forever home. We know there must be someone out there wanting to give this sweet senior a wonderful home.

  • Pit Bull Terrier
Meet fun loving Rose! This petite girl is a current resident of the Pawtucket Animal Shelter. Rose has a great outgoing personality and will keep you laughing and smiling! She is fun, silly and as sweet as they come. Rose enjoys going for walks and playing with her toys; after that she ocea a good snuggle and is very affectionate with people. Rose would do best as an only dog because she doesn't like to share food or treats, but is dog social. She loves going for walks with other dogs and likes to play with them too. Rose knows "sit", "down" and "shake". She is working on loose-leash walking and even more commands. Rose would do well with kids that are a little older, because she is so excitable and fun she could accidentally knock over a little one with her exuberance. She has become a staff favorite at the shelter with her sweet demeanor, soft eyes and ridiculously cute play zoomies. Rose is young and has a lot of love to give! If you think she could be the perfect sidekick, the adoption application is available below. The shelter is very stressful for this sensitive gal and she would love to get into a home where she can relax and get all the love she deserves.

  • Prefers home without dogsPrefers home without cats
This is a unique situation as we don't often hear of Certified Therapy Dogs being rehomed but due to Lucy's owner leaving soon for the monastery he needs to find her a new home. Nine year old Lucy has done nearly 2000 therapy visits to nursing homes, Ronald McDonald house, scout troups, hospice patients, church groups, etc. She is extremely well trained and well behaved. She rides very well in the car and aims to please. Lucy does well with people of all ages. She would do best in a home as the only pet, but she may get along with another calm male dog. She chases cats so we don't want to place her in a home with a cat. Whoever adopts Lucy could choose to work toward certifying as a therapy team with her or just keep her as a family pet. Either way, Lucy will be a wonderful addition to just about any household situation. She is very sweet and loving, in good health, and ready to find out who her new owner will be! You can email Lucy's owner's daughter at AJK369@gmail.com with any questions. To apply to adopt: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/ Please note that Lucy does not belong to Handsome Dan's Rescue. We are assisting her owner, Peter, to safely rehome Lucy.
