Kennels of Compassion

I run an animal rescue in Arizona. Even if you're in another state or country, clicking like on our FB page and following this blog helps so much more than you know! Especially clicking like on our FB page. You can find it here. I also have a shop set up on Tumblr with proceeds from the sales going to the rescue. You can find that shop by clicking here. Thank you all for your support! I know it means so much to the animals we help save.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with an old dog! They’re not damaged or broken, they’re not boring or lazy. They’ve got energy and like to play and love to be loved. They want your affection and they’ll shower you in some as well. Click here for PetFinder.com

NOAH -   This adorable and sweet kitty is a little bit shy at first but once he knows you’re trustworthy, he’ll warm up a lot. He won’t need any brushing and is a very low maintenance pet. He’s a cats-cat, meaning he would be happiest in a home where there are cats for him to play and hang out with and cuddle up next to as well. Having another cat around will probably help him warm up a lot more and a lot sooner too because he’ll be able to see the other cat safe and happy with the humans and be led by example.

POOCHIE -   This dog was given to the rescue only because the woman who owned him had to move into an assisted living facility where animals are not welcome. He is now in a foster home but needs a forever home. He’s a really great dog who loves to be by his human’s side and is loyal and loving too. Great on a leash, he knows to use the doggie door or will wait at the door to let you know it’s time for him to go outside to the bathroom. He’s 23 pounds, neutered, vaccinated and just had his teeth cleaned. He’s an eight year old male who has plenty of energy but is also very well behaved and would do well in a lot of different homes. He’s a lap dog just looking to give and receive love, whether that’s to or from humans or fellow dogs.Spayed/Neutered: YES  Vaccinated: YES  Located in: Nashville TENNESSEEShelter: Schnauzer Love Rescue Inc.Address: Nashville TN 37203Contact: gretch65@gmail.comID #: N/AHours: Contact to set up a time to meetClick here for this animal’s petfinder page.

HAMSTERS -   Many different male and female hamsters that are in need of homes. There are a lot of different patterns and colors available as well. These small rodents are not good for young children because they have a lot of energy and can easily wiggle from their hands and if dropped can easily become injured. These hamsters are free but donations are highly appreciated and by any rescue, needed as well. There are cages and supplies available at the rescue too. These rodents are good for kids at least eight years or older, who have experienced with animals. They’re also good for someone who doesn’t have a ton of time but still wants a pet, as long as you can give them at least thirty minutes a day. I highly recommend getting two of the same gender to keep one another company. Located in: Christmas, FLORIDAShelter: Fallin Pines Critter RescueAddress: 23643 Christmas Cemetery Rd.

FRECKLES-   This seven pound sweetheart would do wonderful in many different types of homes. She does great with other dogs of all sizes but she hasn’t been around cats before so that’s something she’s got to learn. Currently she chases them whenever they run but hasn’t hurt any. I’m pretty sure any cat that hasn’t had their claws viciously ripped out by a vet could easily protect herself from the likes of Freckles - and other creatures that pose an actual threat too. But this isn’t about cats, it’s about Freckles! And who wouldn’t want to pay attention to his cutie? She’s had a very hard life and at six years old that just isn’t right. This little lady deserves a caring and loving home with someone who will carry her around, love her unconditionally because that’s how she’ll love you, and spoil her rotten because she’s going to spoil you with affection and attention. If you want a dog who wants to be by your side or in your arms, a dog that will curl up in your lap, sleep with you like the most loyal of teddy bears, and follow you around the house as if she’s your shadow’s replacement - this is the dog for you! You’ll never be lonely with Freckles in your house!!Spayed/Neutered: YES  Vaccinated: YES  Located in: Phoenix ARIZONAShelter: Mini Mighty Mutts RescueAddress: Contact for informationContact: info@minimightymutts.com or http://www.minimightymutts.com/ID #: N/AHours: Contact for informationClick here for this animal’s petfinder page.

MEADOW -   This beautiful tortoise shell tabby mix is a senior citizen but don’t let that deter you! This lovely lady is a total lap cat and absolutely loves snuggling up close. She’s the sort of cat who should go to someone looking for someone to love them unconditionally, someone who is looking for company, for a partner in crime - if that crime is sitting on the couch watching movies or curled up in bed on the laptop. She just wants to be with a human who will allow her to be comfy and cuddle up with her human. She’s a lover not a fighter and will do great in a lot of different types of homes. Just make sure you have time for her, meaning at least a few hours or attention a day. Giving a cat like this attention just means letting her lay on you or nearby, and also receiving some pets here and there too. She won’t be difficult to please!Spayed/Neutered: YES  Vaccinated: YES  +++ MicrochippedLocated in: Nashville TENNESSEEShelter: Crossroads CampusAddress: 707 Monroe St. Nashville TN 37203Contact: 615-712-9758ID #: N/AHours: Mon 10am-3pm | Tues-Sat 10am-6pm | Sun 12am-5pmClick here for this animal’s petfinder page.

Reno -
Isn’t this pup a goofball? He’s a youngster and so he’s got energy and will want someone who will take him on walks or jogs and also play with him. Someone who works a lot would not be a good fit for this adorable pup!  Whoever does adopt him will have a lot of fun because Reno is one big love ball who just wants attention and to share his love with the world.

Dazzy has not had an easy start to life but she could easily have a wonderful end to it! Every living breathing creature deserves that, so why not give her a chance? She was in an oxygen chamber because she couldn’t breathe but thankfully she’s out now and doing a lot better. Although she’s going to be coughing up gunk from within her lungs for quite some time, she’s healthy enough to go to a new and hopefully a forever loving home like she deserves. She’s really a great dog and does great with other dogs. She would love a place where she had a playmate and someone to cuddle up with; she’ll cuddle with dogs or humans. She just wants someone to love her and to love back! She does need a home where someone is able to be there at all times in the event she has a seizure and vet staff will discuss with you how to handle such a situation. Yes, she has health issues, but she isn’t going to get your other pets sick and she’s a wonderful dog personality wise. She’s worth the “extra baggage” and deserves someone to love her unconditionally because that’s how she loves the humans and animals around her. You can find out more information by clicking here.
