Hi Fans! My name is Walter, and all I want for the Holidays is MY OWN HOME. I hope that Santa finds me one. If you know anyone that could find it in their heart to take in a Senior Man – I promise to be a very good boy! Yes, I am a senior boy, I am great on your lap, like to be with you wherever you go, and I snooze a lot. I was found as a stray, I was a hot mess, but my Foster Home has restored my dignity and faith in mankind. I love my Foster Dad! I have adjusted to my new lifestyle quite nicely. But – I am looking for something permanent. I have some arthritis, I have had a dental, and I am current on my vaccinations, and am heartworm negative. I am fine with other dogs, would likely be fine with cats too. At my age, I am not so interested in other animals or long walks. I am quite vocal when I want something, and will tell you all about it even if you don’t ask! I am quite content sitting cuddling with you, and staying at your side. If you would like to give me a new home for the New Year, please tell Santa where to take me. If you are a senior, please ask VIP Rescue to tell you about our “Seniors for Seniors” Adoption Program.

If you would like to know more about Walter, please complete an adoption application at One of our volunteers will contact you. I can be adopted to Florida residents. I am being fostered in Leesburg Florida and you would need to travel there to meet me.

Bach is thought to be a 12 year old 12 lb poodle.He is current on his shots , micro chipped, neutered and  on heartworm prevention
Bach was very sick when he came to us. He had an infection in his liver as well as heartworms. both have been taken care of. We feel he was mistreated, he doesn’t like loud noises or yelling. He is very timid but warms up with love and kindness. he loves to cuddle when you are laying down. He needs to be in a one dog family with an experienced owner. He is potty trained and loves to run in the fenced yard.
We are guessing he’s about 12 years old. He needs you to help him become the sweet, loving dog he can be. PLEASE consider donating to his forever foster care

Raven/ Clearwater

Raven 10.1.2018
I arrived to rescue emotionally broken. Some thing along the way made me terrified of humans, I am Raven , a three year old, 14 lb scottie mix. In my fear of humans, I appear to be aggressive but really , I am just protecting the little space around me. My foster mom , has been working with me and , once I get to know you I am a snuggle buddy. I have had all my shots, neutered, micro chipped and on heartworm prevention. I love to play fetch, watch TV with my foster mom.. I am really good on a leash and take my business out side.I am great with out dogs .  Some one stole my , good first impression. Are you willing to win my trust ?  You will need to love me for my good looks to start with . So pack your patience and we can be best friends !I am best suited for an experienced pet parent. Raven must have a fenced yard at a single family home , owned by pet parent
If you want to meet , you need to submit your application !

Mambo is a goof ball. That said he will follow you anywhere, he wants to be near you all the time. He had the worst ear infection we had ever seen. They did remove his right ear but he was finally pain free. He is deaf. but it does not hold him back. He is potty trained as long as he gets out often. He is good on a leash and rides well in the car. He loves people and gets along with other dogs and cats. We think he is about 13 years old with  arthritis. His favorite time of day is breakfast and dinner  and nap time. he dogs play with his toys. Please consider donating to his  forever  foster care .

If clown was a breed , there would be no need to describe Mambo’s personality . But since it is not , his sparkling personality prevails ! He is goofy  and fun ! Simply a delight to be around. He is thought to be 9 years young and 23 lbs of love . He is current on his shots, micro chipped, neutered, had a dental and on heartworm prevention.Before his arrival to rescue life, was not kind to Mambo. Neglect of a major ear infection ,left him with having to have the ear removed . Has not changed his personality ! He does have some hearing loss, He has a little dry eye and a touch of arthritis. Mambo is an inspiring companion pet , simply full of fun , after what life dealt him. He is super friendly , good with other dogs , good on a leash too !

Just look at that face , big brown eyes , and a smile for all .  He is waiting to meet you , so submit your application !

Jolly 1
Jolly has been in foster for over two years and approximately 10-12 years old.  He is  not adoptable because of his past neglect and abuse. His expenses every month are for heart guard, nexguard, eye drops,a and supplements to give him the best quality life he can have. We groom him because he can’t be groomed by anyone but it’s a 4-5 hour job.  He occasionally needs antibiotics for his eyes, he is completely blind but had re occurring eye infections. We would appreciate a sponsor or just donations to help with his care. Just because he is deemed un-adoptable doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be cared for and loved by a permanent foster/hospice. He came from a puppy mill. It averages between 30-60 dollars a month. PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO HIS FOREVER FOSTER CARE
