Penelope/Seminole

Hello Florida friends! My name is Penelope,(cute, huh?) I’m a 20lb. 7 month old sweetheart of a pup who absolutely loves all dogs, people and kids! When you call my name, I come running, lay on my back and wait for those pawsome belly rubs to begin! Oh my, how I love my belly rubs!
My family had a DNA test done on me, and guess what it said? I’m 50% Boston Terrier, 25% Australian Cattle dog and 12.5 Basset Hound ! Holy cow, some mix, huh? But I tell you what, you aren’t gonna find anything sweeter than lil ole’ me! 🤭 I’ll be honest, I’m a really really high energy girl who needs an active family with a 6ft secured fenced in backyard so we can play play play! I’m still kinda young and I’m really trying to get the hang of this “potty training” thing, I bet if you work with me and take me outside for frequent potty breaks and maybe even reward me with treats when I do, I’ll get it down pat. (I promise I will, you just need to be patient with me) I’m still a growing girl, and will get a bit bigger, maybe 30-40lbs. ish? Please take that into consideration as well. 
I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and I’m on heart worm and flea prevention. I’m really ready to find my “fur” ever family, I sure hope they’re out there looking for a great pup like me. Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application. Hope to meet you soon, Licks and wags, Penelope 🐾❤️

Zoey/Redington Beach

We’d like to introduce “Miss” Zoey! She’s a fabulous 4 year old 44 lb. Standard Poodle. Zoey is a very sweet, affectionate, loyal companion gal who knows her basic commands, enjoys walks and loves going “bye bye” car! She gets along well with other dogs, and does best playing with dogs similar in size. She has never been cat tested, and being she does better with dogs similar to her size, we recommend no felines in the home. She learns routines quickly, and being the good girl that she is, gets to roam free throughout the house. Due to Zoeys high energy level, a home with a secure 6ft. fence is required. Please keep in mind that Zoey will require regular grooming appointments because, you know, we girls always like to look our best! 😉If you have another pup in the home, that’s great, but Zoey would like to meet them first to make sure they’ll be the “bestest” friends! Zoey is spayed, microchipped, current on vaccines and on monthly heartworm and flea prevention. If you’re interested in this amazing girl, please fill out an adoption application at www.viprescue.orgZoey wanted everyone to know her bags are packed and she’s patiently waiting for her new “fur” ever family! 🐾❤️

Moose/St Petersburg

Hi!!! I’m Moose. If you need a handsome wingman, look no further.  With my rockstar hair, heartthrob smile, and celebrity-sized personality you can’t go wrong with me!  I’m an outgoing, affectionate, super-smart, awesome dude who will make you smile til your face hurts.

Keena and Krystal – BONDED/Redington Beach

Keena/Krystal – BONDED
Redington Beach
Available for Adoption
VIPRescue.org

WE DO NOT ADOPT OUT OF STATE

These 2 precious Shih Tzu girls have quite a sad story that we’re going to share with you. They both were “breeder” dogs and sadly their human could no longer properly care for them for the past several months. Kenna and Krystal along with 5 other dogs were found locked in pens with no access to food or water after their owner was found deceased. The girls were in horrible condition and obviously very hungry.


Keena is a blonde/grey and tan 11 lb 7 year old gal, while Krystal is white/blonde and tan 10lb. 5 year old girl.
When the girls went to the Vet, it was discovered that Keena had “pyometra”, (an infected uterus) and had surgery immediately to remove the infected uterus. She was doing good, and then, a few days later, developed a secondary infection which required a 2nd surgery to put a drain in! More antibiotics were started and she’s now feeling much better ❤️.


Krystal is a really sweet girl who has lost an eye due to glaucoma a few years ago. She does have some depth issues and occasionally bumps into things and does need help with stairs, but when she gets the “lay of the land” she does well. Both girls are doing well with house training as long as they get out enough and are crate trained as well. Please understand they are “ bonded “ and will need to be adopted together to an adult only home and with someone who is home more often than not. Sorry, there will be no exceptions.

The girls have been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, had dentals and have been started on heart worm and flea prevention. They currently eat Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream grain free food due to food sensitivities. If you have room in your heart AND home for both of these girls, please go to www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application. They hope to hear from you soon!🐾❤️

LEGEND / Tavares, FL

ADOPT PENDING for LEGEND

TAVARES, FLORIDA

www.viprescue.org

Meet Legend!  He is an affectionate male cream colored Standard Poodle, and was a former Therapy Dog.  Legend was born 1/15/2020.  VIP RESCUE adopts to Florida Residents only.  Legend requires a 6-foot fenced grassy yard to exercise and play, no exceptions.   Legend and other pets were found locked in pens outdoors with no access to food or water after their owner was found deceased.  Legend came to VIP Rescue weighing in at 39.8 pounds.  His past medical records show his weight should be 55.  At present he is gaining weight, has a good appetite, and weighs in at 47.  He eats Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream Grain Free food due to food sensitivities.  Legend is good with other dogs of his own size, he is very active, and very playful.  He is leash trained, crate-trained, and knows sit and usually comes when called.  He likes to be chased by dogs and kids, plays fetch, but has not mastered bringing back the item.  He has been great with respectful children of all ages.  He is housetrained at his fosters home, but that means taking him out immediately in the morning, and immediately after being crated.  He needs structure with his house training at a new home.   He would love to nuzzle up with you on your sofa, or on your lap if you prefer.  He is timid when meeting new people, and will come to you on his terms after you are seated.   He is good on the groom table and needs monthly grooming and frequent baths.  When Legend came into VIP Rescue, he was severely matted and was shaved down as a result.  

Legend is recently neutered, up to date on all vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped.  He is scheduled for a dental June 15, and will be available for adoption immediately after.   Legend would do well in a younger active home setting with a parent at home, with lots of energy to play with him, inside and out, and long walks.   He is not a good dog for seniors due to his high activity level and age of 2.  Legend is fostered in Tavares, Florida.  To adopt Legend, you must come to meet him at his foster home, and bring your dog(s) to make sure it is a match.

If you meet the qualifications for Legend, please complete an adoption application at VIP Rescue to be considered.  www.viprescue.org   A home-visit is a pre-requisite in the adoption process at VIP RESCUE.  Legends adoption donation is $500.  

VIP RESCUE thanks all those who donated to our fundraiser for Legend and the other 6  dogs that we took in on emergency basis from the shelter.   We are grateful for your continued support.  They are all doing well at this time, and will be listed when they become available for adoption. 

Cindy/Holiday

Hi everyone, I’m Cindy. I’m chilling out here in Holiday, Fl and enjoying the good life, I’m originally from Louisiana and I most definitely have that laid back Louisiana personality, easy going and loving. I get along well with all the other dogs in my foster home, and just adore my foster “paw”rents. They take me for walks and give me tons of attention (which I LOVE!) and let me lay around wherever I want. I gotta tell you, it’s a dog’s life for sure, there’s nothing better! This Florida gig is pretty swell!

I’m 5 years old, weigh about 25 pounds, and am a white and cream color. I’m really quite pretty if I don’t say so myself!? I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and started on flea and heartworm prevention, my foster “paw”rents say that’s so important!

I’d love to meet you, and I’m sure once you meet me you will fall straight up in love with me. Please fill out an application at www.viprescue.org
I sure hope my “fur”ever family comes along real soon! ???

Tinkerbell/Redington Beach


**We do not ship our pets. In state adoptions only**


Did someone say they wanted a puppy? Lookie here! We’d like you to meet Tinker. This little sweetie was born on 1/11/2022. We’ve been told Mommy was a shih tzu, and Daddy was a chihuahua. Our best guess if that’s correct is that they should be around 20lbs. full grown but again, that’s only a guess at this point! Now that you have found that perfect little darling, we want to make sure you’re ready for that bouncy, high energy shoe eating little pupper!

Puppies are tons of fun but do require ALOT of work and training on your family’s part so that they will be the best pup they can be. They need love, attention and lots of consistency especially for housebreaking! Their little bladders can’t hold it all day while you’re at work, so you’ll definitely need someone home more often than not. (Pups this young need to be fed 3x a day until they get older)  If that’s not possible, please consider one of our adult dogs which might be better suited for your lifestyle! She is spayed, has age appropriate vaccines, is microchipped and started on heartworm and flea prevention. Although she is too young to be tested for heartworm, we always start our pups on prevention at this age. It’s so important! If you feel you’ve got the time and commitment for these pups, please visit www.viprescue.org and fill out an adoption application. Please understand, we do expect a lot of interest for them, therefore, incomplete applications will not be considered.

Bonnie and Clyde- BONDED

Redington Beach – Available for adoption

VIP rescue received a plea very late one evening recently for these two itty bitty chihuahua mixes. Sadly, they were set to be euthanized the next day in a rural shelter in the south simply because there was no space left for anymore dogs. This is NOT the shelters fault, it is a worldwide overpopulation problem, plain and simple. Ok, now let’s talk about these sweeties. Our amazing Director ( and also their foster Mom) met the overnight transport and brought these babes to safety with VIP Rescue. We have named them Bonnie and Clyde, Bonnie is 2 years old (black and white) and Clyde is 3 years old (mostly white – with a little heart shaped black mark on his back) and are both just 7lbs of total sweetness! We have found them to be TOTALLY bonded, and MUST be adopted together, sorry, absolutely no exceptions. They do everything together, eat, sleep, give kisses, play and ask nicely for attention, except walk on a leash together! Clyde is good on the leash and Bonnie, well, she is having none of it! She screams and barrel rolls🤣🤣. She should come around eventually, we’ll maybe, hopefully 😉, she just needs time, patience and encouragement. They both love attention and are happy to sit in your lap for hours, but are also content to cuddle up together in their doggie bed too. They get along great with the other pups in their foster home, but have not been cat or kid tested. Older, respectful children would most likely be ok. We do recommend a secure fenced in yard/area for them due to their size and the fact that Bonnie is not ready to go for walks just yet. They are both spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and started on heartworm and flea prevention. So, what do you think? Do you have room in your heart and your home for a total of 14lbs of adorableness? 😄 Please remember, they MUST be adopted together, and we only do IN STATE ADOPTIONS. Please submit your application to www.viprescue.org for consideration! 🐾❤️

Stella/Redington Beach

We’d like you to meet sweet little Stella. She’s thought to be a Chi/RatTerrier and maybe a hint of Pomeranian mix, but what we do know is this little 3 year old 15lb gal has a lot of love to give. Stella came to VIP Rescue with her 5 little boys (currently interviewing for their own homes!)She had a real tough start in life coming from a cruelty case and barely no socialization skills at all. In fact, it took quite a while for her to even let her foster Mom near her or her babies. With ALOT of patience and love, after just a few days she allowed foster Mom to handle the babies! Yeah! Next, was to gain the trust of foster Mom, and again, with ALOT of love, foster Mom started hand feeding her and it didn’t take long for Stella to realize that not all humans are bad, and this gig might be a good one! In no time at all, Stella starting acting like a real dog should, enjoying pets, belly rubs, toys, and totally accepting of love from her “Mom”. She was introduced to the other foster siblings and gets along great with them. She totally enjoys her early morning leash walks and is really enjoying her new life. Due to her past, Stella feels the need to “protect” her human and prefers to be in a single adult only female home. Another dog would be ok, but no children or cats in the home. ( sorry, no exceptions) Stella would really do best with someone who is retired or works from home, and has the time and experience to spend with her, to make her feel safe, comfortable and loved in her new home. If you have any questions for her foster Mom, feel free to email info@viprescue.orgStella has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, a fresh dental and started on flea and heart worm prevention. To apply for this great gal, visit www.viprescue.org

Bri/Redington Beach

Hi! My name is Bri and I’m just the sweetest little girl. I’m a little on the skittish side, but once I check you out I’m good with you and you’ll have a friend by your side all the time. I’m 2 years old and 18 pounds. I get along great with foster pups, but not my kitty family so I need a home with no cats. I’d be ok with having an older human sibling, but because of my skittishness I think loud little kids would scare me. I’m good on leash, although at times I get scared. With a little coaxing I can get back up and go again. If I had a fenced in backyard that would be great. If you’d like to be my family? Bri is heartworm positive and her new family will need to live close to our Vet in Indian Rocks Beach for her timely heartworm treatments over the next few months. A VIP Volunteer will go over all the protocol with you, along with the “do’s” and “don’t’s” of a heartworm positive dog until treatment is complete. VIP of course, covers the heartworm treatment in full. Bri is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and has been started on heartworm and flea prevention. Please fill out that adoption application to be considered to adopt. click on link to be directed to application submission.

Princess/Seminole


Available for adoption!!!
VIPRescue.org

Are you ready to meet a pint sized Royal? If you are, Her Royal Highness of cuteness, Princess, is available for adoption. Princess, came to VIP as an owner surrender, when her mom developed a health issue, rendering her unable to provide Princess with the regal lifestyle she deserves. Princess is a 12 year young Maltese who loves to follow her foster parents around the house, snuggle at every available opportunity and captures hearts of all in her presence. She loves walks around the neighborhood and dances with joy when the leash comes out.

Princess does have separation anxiety, so only households with an adult home all day. Also due to her small size, all household members need to be 12 years old or older. She is spayed, microchipped, current on vaccines. If you have room in your heart for a sweet Royal, please submit an application.

Polo / Redington Beach

Hey there, my name is Polo, and I’m the cutest 8lb, 3 year old chihuahua boy you are going to ever meet! I’m a BE’u’tiful chocolate color, with a brown nose and brown eyes and maybe a little white on me too. I am currently interviewing for a new home and family. I just love leash walks and am also potty trained.  It would be a bonus for me if you have a fenced in yard (you know it is all about me), because I do enjoy sunbathing and all the fresh smells of the outdoors.  I also get along great with most pups or I could be your one and only.  I’m good with respectful kids and I have not been cat tested.  I like to follow my foster mom around and snuggle with her as soon as she sits down.  She says i’m a “Velcro” doggie! I would love it if my new home has humans around most of the time. I do get a little scared with loud noises and having a human there helps me get through some of the scary stuff.     
I am neutered, microchipped, current on my vaccines and have started my monthly heartworm and flea preventatives. Do you have room in your heart and your home for sweet little me?  What do you think?  if the answer is a BIG yes, please submit an application with viprescue.org. i’ll be here waiting to meet you. 🐾❤️

Hazel/Bertha – Bonded Pair/Indian Rocks Beach

***We do not adopt out of the state of Florida***

Hi friends! We would like to introduce you to this adorable pair of female chihuahuas, Hazel and Bertha. 


Hazel and Bertha are what we call “bonded.” What that means is they are the bestest of friends, and having been together their whole lives, they are seeking a forever home together. We will not separate these girls. 

Hazel is 7 years young and weighs 6.8lbs. Bertha is 9 years young and weighs 7.4lbs. They are both very gentle natured and friendly. Hazel is the more outwardly affectionate of the two, while Bertha tends to be a bit more shy and reserved.

Their favorite thing to do is cuddle with each other on a comfie couch or dog bed. It is rare to see them willingly out of sight of one another. They seem to be crate trained, although they aren’t destructive, mischievous or big explorers so foster mom just has them set up in their own little playroom. 

Hazel and Bertha enjoy walks together. They are good on a leash, and walk very well and easily together. Keep in mind they are petite dogs though and we doubt they previously had a super active lifestyle. We keep our walks short and leisurely strolls versus counting steps. They are a combo of housebroken and potty pad trained. 

Upon arrival at VIP Rescue, both girls were severely flea infested, which resulted in some skin irritation and mild hair loss. We expect with the fleas now eradicated to see quick improvement with their skin itchiness and inflammation. The missing hair should grow back in the next couple of months too. 

Hazel and Bertha are fine with other friendly small-medium dogs being around but they do not really engage the other dogs in their foster home. They have not been tested with cats or kids, although their foster mom thinks they would do fine with proper introduction and supervision. 

Hazel and Bertha have been spayed, microchipped, are up to date on their vaccinations, started on flea and heartworm prevention, and have had fresh dentals. 


Interested in being considered to adopt this precious pair of bonded pups? Please submit your application at VIPRescue.org

Darlynn/Redington Beach


Hello there my new friends, my name is Darlynn. I’m a quiet, sweet little 5 year old 11 lb. girl. I didn’t have the best life before coming here, but I heard from some people that I won the doggie jackpot because I was going to VIP Rescue! When I arrived at VIP Rescue, I was so flea infested, and I could barely see through my overgrown hair and my belly was hungry. My foster Mommy gave me a nice warm bubble bath and got rid of all those nasty fleas, gave me a nice haircut, and the best was the yummy food she made me. I almost feel like a new doggie! The next day Mommy brought me to the “dogtor” to get spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and I even had a dental! Oh, and they started me on my heartworm and flea prevention too. They said that was VERY important. They were so nice to me there! Now, I’m ready to meet and find my new family. I’m looking for a quieter, kind, patient family who will give me a nice warm bed to sleep in, yummy food to fill my belly, and a warm lap to cuddle on, could that be you? I need a little help with my potty training, and I’m doing great on this ”leash” thing. Do I sound like the little girl for you? I sure hope so. Foster Mommy says please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application for me. I’m so looking forward to a great life with you, hope to meet you soon. ???

Miley/Palm Harbor

This cute 2 year old Jack Russell mix is Miley. She is quite the mover and the shaker, typical traits for the Jack Russel breed. Have you seen those agility courses? Yeah, we bet she’d LOVE to do that as she loves to get on top of things to see as far as she can see. Ha!! With that being said, this silly SUPER active girl will require a home with a 6 ft fenced in yard. ( sorry, no exceptions)  Miley gets along with most dogs, but she tends to want to be the “alpha” in the family, so with that being said, we feel she would do best as an only dog in an active home with older kids (12+)  due to her being so “jumpy”. This great girl is always ” on the go”, and again, typical of the breed.  Miley is currently interviewing for her “fur”ever home, could that be yours? Do you have an active life style and want to share it with this sweet girl? She’ll be waiting to hear from you! Miley is spayed, current on her vaccines, microchipped, housebroken, crate trained and on monthly flea and heartworm prevention. Sound like the girl for you? An adoption application can be found at www.viprescue.org

Beauregard/Redington Beach

Available for Adoption!!!

** We DO NOT adopt out of state***

Hi everyone, my name is Beauregard! I’m a 20 lb. 16 month old Westie mix kind of guy. I came to VIP Rescue Beauregard/Redington Beach Available for Adoption!!! Viprescue.org *** We DO NOT adopt out of State*** Hi everyone, my name is Beauregard! I’m a 20 lb. 16 month old Westie mix boy. I came to VIP Rescue recently in pretty yucky shape. In my previous place they didn’t have enough time for me and It seems I was most likely left in my crate for way too long which I think caused a bit of anxiety as I was literally just tearing my fur out. I had boo boo’s on my skin from that too, amongst other stuff. I went to a place called a “foster” home, and yippee, I got the BESTEST foster Mommy ever! She gave me a couple of awesome warm “bubble baths” to help my irritated, itchy skin. Next day Mommy took me to the “Dogtor” to get a check up, and even though I got lottsa stuff done to me, (shots for my itchy skin too?) I really felt better, they were really gentle and kind with me. The “dogtor” gave Mommy medicines for me to take for my skin, and in no time at all, my beautiful coat will grow back. I love to play with my foster siblings, but even with that, foster Mommy thinks it’s best if I was your one and only, cuz of my past. I need to be with my human and hog all that attention! I love to snuggle up with foster Mommy, and would prefer someone home more often than not. Mommy takes us for morning walks and says I’m real good on a leash, and I’m working on potty trained as long as I get enough potty breaks throughout the day, I’m really good. Not much napping for me, I’m very active and need as much time as I can get for playing. I’ve been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and started on heartworm and flea prevention too. So, whatya think? Do you have enough time for me? Do you maybe work from home or are home alot? Cause that’s what I really want in my new home. My bags are packed and I’m ready to go. Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application. ???xoxo, Beauregard.

Did someone say they wanted a puppy? Lookie here! We’d like you to meet Toby. These little sweeties were born on 1/11/2022. We’ve been told Mommy was a shih tzu, and Daddy was a chihuahua. Our best guess if that’s correct is that they should be around 20lbs. full grown but again, that’s only a guess at this point! Now that you have found that perfect little darling, we want to make sure you’re ready for that bouncy, high energy shoe eating little pupper! Puppies are tons of fun but do require ALOT of work and training on your family’s part so that they will be the best pup they can be. They need love, attention and lots of consistency especially for housebreaking! Their little bladders can’t hold it all day while you’re at work, so you’ll definitely need someone home more often than not. (Pups this young need to be fed 3x a day until they get older)  If that’s not possible, please consider one of our adult dogs which might be better suited for your lifestyle! Both boys have been neutered, have age appropriate vaccines, are microchipped and started on heartworm and flea prevention. Although they’re too young to be tested for heartworm, we always start our pups on prevention at this age. It’s so important! If you feel you’ve got the time and commitment for these pups, please visit www.viprescue.org and fill out an adoption application. Please understand, we do expect a lot of interest for them, therefore, incomplete applications will not be considered.As always, if you have any questions at all, feel free to email us at info@ viprescue.org

Charlie Jo

Stop scrolling right now if you are looking for the perfect addition to add to your family!  My name is Charlie Jo (my foster mom and dad call me CJ). I’m a one year old 12 lb wire haired terrier mix girl loaded with cuteness.  I do pretty well on my walks, although I seem to do better with a harness vs a regular collar. I sometimes have a few (very few) accidents in the house but I’m learning real quick to go outside. I love to follow my “mommy” EVERYWHERE and I just love to curl up in her lap and cuddle. I get along well with my foster sister and am good with other dogs when properly introduced (I have not met a cat yet). I’m a little shy at first but I am coming out of my shell and showing my personality. (Mommy is really helping me with this) So if you are looking for the bestest little girl around get your adoption application in before my foster mom decides to keep me. 😉 I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and started on heartworm and flea prevention. Hope to meet you soon! 🐾 Please go to www.viprescue.org to submit an application.

Kabo/Indian Rocks Beach

Hey there you beautiful people, my name is Kabo and I came to this great place called VIP Rescue to find my new family! First, a little about me. I’m a super 6 year old 15 lb ish chocolate Shih Tzu guy. I’ve got a really short haircut because of horrible matting at intake. But, good news is, I’m ok with it for now, and in a couple of months or so my fur should be in completely. Wait til you see how very handsome I am! When my fur does grow back in, I’ll need to be brushed regularly along with going to the groomer as well. I’m a playful and affectionate guy who LOVES other puppers, and I also really like those “hoomans” ( they give me toys, belly rubs and yummy food!) I’d love to be adopted with my friend Saila if you have the room, but if not, that’s ok as long as there’s another doggie in the home to play with or If you’ve got friends that have doggies for me to play alot with, that’d be ok too. Foster Mom said I’m great on a leash ( I wear a harness for walks) and I’m like 90% housebroken (yeah!) and will use potty pads if needed/provided. I’m neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and just had a dental too. Foster Mom started me on my heartworm and flea prevention too (she says that’s VERY important. Think I’m the guy for you? If so, please submit an application to www.viprescue.org Thanks for reading all about me, hope to meet you soon! 🐾❤️

Saila/Indian Rocks Beach

Hi friends! My name is Saila and I am available for adoption!! Weighing in at 15 pounds, I am a youthful 12 year old female shih tzu looking for my “furever” home.


Please excuse my super duper short haircut. I was really matted so my rescue friends had to get all that old hair off and give me a fresh start. But you know what they say? The difference between a bad haircut and a good haircut is about 5 weeks. I’ll be glad when my hair grows back, but at least it’s not winter, so until then, just imagine me fluffy and furry. It’ll grow back, and I will require regular grooming (aka “spa”) appointments, as well as in between brushing.


I’m friendly and affectionate, and very social with other dogs. I can be a bit shy so please don’t expect too much too quick, but don’t be surprised if I find you extraordinary and we click from minute one, the way some friends do.
Speaking of friends, I came in with my canine buddy, Kabo. He’s a 6 year old chocolate shih tzu, weighs 15lbs like me. Please check out his bio to learn about him too. We would love to find a forever home together, so if you are one of those looking for 2, we could be the 2 for you! If not, that’s ok too!


I walk well on a leash and am also housebroken but will also use potty papers in a pinch.
I’m spayed, microchipped, current on all vaccinations, had a fresh dental and am on heartworm and flea prevention. My bags are packed and I’m ready to find my new “fur” ever family! 


If you’re Interested in applying for me (and possibly Kabo too?), please submit your application at VIPRescue.org Hope to hear from you soon! 

SallyAnne/ St Petersburg

Hi I’m SallyAnne, I’m a 7 pound 4 yo Chiweenie. I’m a bit skittish, but once I trust you, you can expect lots of kisses and snuggles. Yummy treats are the way to my heart! 


I love to ride in the stroller and be carried in a sling, but I don’t really like walking on a leash yet. I tolerate my doggy foster sisters but I prefer to do my own thing, so I don’t really play with them much.  But I do like to steal their toys and hide them in my bed! I love squeaky toys and chew toys! And as a bonus I’m crate trained.


I recently had a rough patch of life- I was found as a stray and had lots of skin problems. But my hair is almost completely grown back and I’m feeling a lot better! 


My perfect match would be a patient family who can help me come out of my shell, and who will work with me on potty training, a fenced yard would be a plus.  I’d be a great one and only, or a good match for doggy siblings who are calm and relaxed. 


I am spayed, micro chipped, up to date with vaccines and on monthly heartworm and flea prevention.  You must submit an application to be considered for adoption.  VIPRescue.org

Faith/St Petersburg

Hi there VIP Rescue friends! My name is Faith, and wait til you hear how perfect I am, you’ll just wanna run right to your “puter “ and fill out that “doption” application! I’m an AMAZING 7 month old sweetheart, ( my foster Mommy says that all the time, I think she “wubs” me a whole lot!). I’m 13 lbs, and may get a little bigger.  I’m a gentle girl who loves to be petted, but sometimes I can be a little shy, but once I feel comfortable, it’s all good! Loud noises sometimes startle me, so please be patient with me. Cuddles, wow, they are the BEST! I really love to cuddle on the couch with my humans and watch some T.V. I get along with most other doggies, but sometimes I do bark at them. You can help me with that, ok? I like the “big and little” humans, they’re kinda cool. Ready for the bestest news? I’m crate AND potty trained! I also do good on my leash too! Told ya I was a great girl! I’m already spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and on heartworm and flea prevention (very very important for me and all doggies to be on that). So, whatya think? Are you RUNNING to your “puter” yet? Please visit www.viprescue.org and fill out that adoption application! See ya soon! Licks and Wags, Faith 🐾❤️
