Milo/Redington Beach

Howdy Rescue world!!! I’m Milo, a Shih Tzu mix, who’s thought to be about 11-12 years old, a senior, and all of 11 lbs.  I am in search of a quiet, laid back, loving adult home to spend my golden years in, I don’t require much, a roof over my head, a human or two that will pamper me with good food and some gentle cuddles.  I am working on my house manners, If you take me out frequently, I do my business outside.  I do have cataracts and have lost some of my vision, but my nose works real good especially when there’s food involved, I’m right there!  I have some skin issues that were going on, but I was treated and now my hair is growing back near my tail.  Do you think I might be the guy for you? I sure hope so! I am neutered, current on my vaccines, had a recent dental, microchipped and on heartworm and flea prevention too. Please submit your adoption application to I hope to meet my new “fur” ever family real soon! Love and tail wags, your friend, Milo.


We’d like you to meet Rusty, or as we call him ” Mr. Showman”. This handsome 5 year old guy is thought to be a bit of a Dachshund mix weighing in at 27 lbs. Rusty just loves attention, and if tail wagging was a sport, he would be the Gold Medal Olympian! Rusty came to VIP Rescue with his brother, Smokey. They are not a bonded pair so therefore do not need to be adopted together, but if you’d like both of them, then we say sure! Rusty enjoys sunning himself in the yard and enjoys his short leash walks around the neighborhood. He has his housebreaking manners almost down pat, he just needs you to continue working with him on that. Rusty came to us heartworm positive, so his new family will need to live reasonably close to our Vet in Indian Rocks Beach for his timely treatments for 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. Rusty is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, microchipped and on flea and heartworm prevention.  Rusty is patiently waiting for his new home, could that be yours?

Laine and Rose – BONDED/Seminole

Friends, we’d like to re-introduce Laine and Rose to you. ( their original story is below this update) 

The girls originally came to us as a bonded pair back in June of 2021, both very shy and timid. After 4+ months of TLC in their foster home(s) these amazing girls were adopted into a loving home, but sadly, due to personal issues with the adopter and no fault of their own, they are now back with VIP Rescue. They are still very much bonded to each other, with Laine being the more outgoing of the two, and Rose more reserved. The girls are so loving, and all they ask for is a new family to share their love with. We understand not alot of people want to adopt 2 dogs at once, but we know deep down in our hearts, there’s a home out there for the both of them! If you are interested and have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us via email. Until that “fur” home comes along, we’ll continue to love on them and help them to flourish. Please feel free to share this post far and wide, the power of Social Media is amazing!

Well hello there! Think you’re seeing double? No need to have your eyes checked, because yes, there are two of us lovelies! We are 5 year old sisters, 16-18 lbs, Laine and Rose.  We were surrendered to a shelter, and then we hit the doggie jackpot when the shelter foster home contacted VIP Rescue to take us!! YES!!!  We just knew we were going to be ok from here on in. With the help from a few foster homes, we are absolutely learning what love is, and we now trust our human friends. It does take us a while to warm up, so patience, and more patience is what we will need to warm up to our new family and in return you will get soft kisses and gentle pawing for some belly rubs.  At this time, we think it’s best if we went to an adult only home where we will be your only puppers.  We have learned to play, we love to chase each other around the yard and wrestle, and we’re actually doing pretty darn good with going on walks! Our new home will require a 6 ft fence as we have discovered this new thing called “life” and love to play and jump around in the yard. We have been spayed ( thank goodness, no more babies for us!) vaccinated and microchipped. We are still learning the house training rules, so you’ll need to continue with that as well with us.   So, how about it? Think we might be the girls for you?  We sure hope so!  Please fill out an adoption application, and this “paw”some rescue will put you in touch with our amazing foster Mom! We hope to hear from you soon!

Peewee/Palm Harbor

Peewee is a handsome is 14 year old gentleman. In his retirement years he is looking for a nice comfy place to lay or someone curl up next to or to take him on nice leisurely walks. Someone who will let him ride shot gun in the car. He’s a great co-pilot. He loves an occasional stop at Starbucks for pupappuccino. But this guy needs to watch his wasteline. He recently has had a check up and is quite healthy for his age.

He gets along with other doggies, and if you have one at home already, a meet and greet would be needed. This great guy is neutered, up to date with his vaccines, microchipped and on monthly heartworm/flea prevention . If he sounds like the companion for you Please submit an adoption application at
