  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Meet Cooper! This fun loving guy had a rough start to life. He came into the shelter very thin and emaciated and had been left abandoned in an apartment when his family moved away. Through all of this, his super sweet personality was still there. Now he is healthy and happy! He loves getting attention from anyone and gives lots of love in return. He is learning his basic commands and really enjoys going for walks in the park. He enjoys walks with other dogs but would prefer to be the only dog. Cooper would really enjoy a couch to lay on and a family to love him. He is an easy going guy who really wants a family of his own, a pool would be great too!

  • Domestic Short Hair (Black)
Sarah was recently at the Cranston Animal Shelter and when our volunteers where there working with the dogs, they met beautiful Sarah and shortly after she developed upper respiratory infection. Sadly, as often the case with older cats with already compromised immune systems, the infection hit her very quickly and very hard. We quickly transferred Sarah into Handsome Dan's Rescue and was rushed to OSVS and was hospitalized and stabilized then released to her foster mom, Trish, who has been nursing her back to health. We are working hard to help Sarah gain her strength and health. She will have her dental issues addressed and although she is a very old little lady, we will do everything we can to get her ready to spend her golden years in a loving home once healthy. Until then, Sarah is enjoying being pampered in her new foster home. To apply to adopt Sarah: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/ Sarah's foster mom, Trish: ttorres@aspectsinc.com

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

  • Prefers home without small kidsPrefers home without cats
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.

  • Special Needs
Eight year old Sully is a exceptionally special boy. He is blind, but he does not let that slow him down. Sully has waited at North Smithfield shelter for years to find his forever home, so added him to our Shelter Dog Enrichment Program to help get him some much needed exposure. Sully is gentle and affectionate, happy and playful. His favorite thing is a squeaky toy and he will do just about anything to get the chance to play with one. Although Sully has been friendly to cats and has had other dog playmates, the shelter prefers he go to a home as the only pet so that he can have all the love and attention for himself. Sully is also a Take My Lead dog though Handsome Dan's Rescue which provides free private training once adopted to help set him up for success in his new home.

  • American Staffordshire Terrier
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without dogs
Snuggly, sensitive Odie wants to fill your couch, your lap and your life with lots of love! Odie enjoys leash walks, relaxing in the backyard on a sunny afternoon and rolling in the snow on a New England winter’s day. He’s also a fan of TV time, but watching the neighborhood out the window might be his favorite program (he’s a bit nosy). On Saturday mornings, he loves training at Pits and Pals C.L.A.S.S. with his dedicated Handsome Dan’s volunteers. Thanks to his friend Ashley, Odie has learned to use his relaxation mat to chill out when something makes him nervous. He has excellent house manners; he is totally housebroken and likes to play with his treat-dispensing maze ball during his downtime (he's not a fan of squeakers!) Because Odie spent his formative time in a shelter setting, he is not as comfortable with some of the things we take for granted including vacuums, lawnmowers and barking dogs. Due to the loud, excitable nature of children and their toys, Odie would do best in a home with older kids. Odie also prefers to be the only pet in the home since he is unsure of other animals. Odie's adoption donation is $100 and he and his adopter will receive free transition training to ensure Odie and his new family are set for success! You can email his Enrichment Specialist, Kelly, at kellyapayton@gmail.com with any questions or apply at www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/
