Uncle Bernie is a distinguished older gentleman looking for a home. Originally he belonging to a homeless person, he spent many years on the streets. Last Summer, he wandered into a vet's office, ending up at a shelter, but never claimed. Bernie spent several months at shelters where Handsome Dan's Rescue volunteers fell in love with his charming and easy going personality. Due to a recent health scare, Bernie was transferred into foster care with Handsome Dan’s Rescue. He now has a clean bill of health and is ready to find his forever home. Bernie loves people and has yet to meet one who doesn't become his new best friend. He’s friendly, wiggly, and adores attention. At 80lbs. he’s a big guy, but so gentle friends can’t help but want to pet his big blocky head. Uncle Bernie’s favorite toy is a tennis ball, he loves to play fetch, so we need to be sure his new family keeps well stocked! He has more pep in his step then his senior status would suggest. Bernie seems to enjoy the company of other dogs, but due to his affinity for chase, he should not live with cat friends. Uncle Bernie's had a pretty rough life until recently so we are hoping for someone willing to open their hearts and home to this senior dog, and give him the very best golden years. To apply to adopt Bernie: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/ For questions about Bernie, please email Trish at ttorres@aspectsinc.com. Bernie's adoption donation is $50. Thank you for choosing rescue!

  • Labrador Retriever, Hound

Shy little 2-3-year-old Lab/Hound mix Leia is a sweet and sensitive girl. She loves other dogs and once she finds the courage to bond to someone, they are friends for life. Due to Leia's fears, she is overwhelmed at Scituate Shelter. She has a dedicated team of volunteers by her side who were able to gain her trust and help her true colors emerge. Leia is a participant in Handsome Dan's Rescue's Shelter Dog Enrichment Program where she attends Outbound Hounds' Pit Class with volunteers Leslie and Diane. Leia loves other dogs! She gains confidence from dogs and seeks their attention. Since Leia is working on overcoming her fears, she is still unsure of how to behave when she is comfortable enough to get excited. She is working hard on understanding how to contain her excitement and be the best dog she can be! Leia comes with FREE private training and group classes through Handsome Dan's Rescue Take My Lead program. We put this in place to help her adopters continue to work on her training and set her up for success. If you can give Leia a patient and loving home to help her find courage and feel safe, please email Stephanie at slambertfrench@gmail.com with any questions, or to apply to adopt Leia: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/

We are very excited to have 1.5 year old Moose in our Shelter Dog Enrichment program, where is matched to volunteer Rianna. She takes him on outings to give him some much needed respite from shelter life, and brings him to Outbound Hounds' Pit Class on Saturdays to work on commands and manners. Moose is a big hunk of a dog with perfect cow spots running down his back! Moose goes on group walks with other dogs but would do best as the only dog in the home. He is currently being cared for by the folks at Providence Animal Rescue League. Questions?

Ruru is in our Compassion Hold program. He will live out whatever time he has left with his foster care provider, Steve. Eight month old Ruru has a severe heart condition. His cardiologist tells us it is likely he will not make it to adulthood. We took Ruru into our Compassion Hold (hospice) program from a local shelter and placed him into a home where he will be loved and spoiled for whatever time he has left.

Meet Papa! This dapper older fellow is a resident of East Providence shelter where he is adored. But a shelter is no place for a sweet old man. Papa has worn and broken teeth so we here at Handsome Dan's Rescue are covering his dental surgery and then he will be ready to go to his forever home! Do you have a comfy spot for this adorable senior? If so, let us know and we will put you in touch with Juli or Will who can set up a meet and greet! Thank you for choosing rescue!

Hailey is about as sweet and gentle as they come. She was surrendered to a local shelter with two other dogs when her previous owner was moving, lived in the shelter for a few months and was treated for some health issues, until we transferred her into our foster care program here at Handsome Dan's Rescue. Hailey currently lives with another dog, but may do best as the only pet. Other than the normal issues that come with old age, Hailey is a happy and healthy senior. If you may be looking for a mellow friend, please consider Hailey. Adoption donation - $50 To apply to adopt: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/ Thank you for choosing rescue!

If you're searching for sweet, sensitive, and slightly awkward then adoptable Nubbies is your guy. He's gangly, goofy, and gregarious... a real head turner who’s always getting compliments on how gorgeous he is. Just take one look into those soulful, kinda crossed eyes and you too will fall under his spell. But don't worry, he doesn't let all that flattery go to his beautiful blocky head, he's smart enough to know that he’s a work in progress. Always eager to please, he strives at PIT Class to become the best Nubbies he can be. In his spare time, he loves car rides, walks, snacks, and covering his friends (basically every person he meets) with kisses. Nubbies does well on leash walks with other dogs, but should be the only pet. He’s a big, exuberant boy so sturdy older kids or a grown-ups only house, please. Oh yeah. His enthusiasm for life has left Nubbies with painful hips. He takes supplements, is responding well, and in true Nubbies’ fashion, he doesn’t let it keep him down at all. To find out more about the incredible Nubbies, please contact his Enrichment Specialist, Sara, at saracaitlin@gmail.com. You can also contact the North Attleboro Animal Shelter directly at 508. 699.0128.

  • Domestic Short Hair
Stanley is a quiet reserved older gent of a cat looking for a new home. Found as a stray in Cranston he found his way to the shelter and sadly being black and older was overlooked by adopters. Stanley developed an upper respiratory infection while waiting to be adopted, and we were concerned about his being able to recuperate in a shelter environment so took him into foster care. Since becoming a Handsome Dan’s Rescue Pit Bull Type Cat, Stanley is thriving. We found that he had a thyroid condition that was preventing him from putting on much needed weight. Now that he has been on medication and his thyroid is functioning correctly, he has put on some weight and is very content. We think Stanley would do fine an a home with other mellow cats. His favorite things are pets, wet food, and fuzzy warm blankets. If interested in learning more about Stanley, please email his foster mom at TTorres@aspectsinc.com
