Encore's Available Babes


Sappho is an adorable chunky girl weighing in at 17 lbs and around 5 years old. She can be a bossy girl who comes around to people only in her own time but once she does she will never leave your side. She has really taken to her foster mom but can take some time to warm up to men. Sappho just needs someone to be patient yet show her the boundaries and she will make a lovely companion.


Maia is a beautiful 5-6 year old gal who life has not been kind to. She is very scared but we are working hard on socializing her and learning that people are nice. We have never seen a mean bone in her body towards humans and you can tell she wants to trust but she can take some time to fully and still spooks at loud noises, etc. Maia doesn't quite know how to appropriately play with other dogs (she can be very rough with them once she gets excited and that can confuse other dogs. For this reason we are recommending her being an only dog in the household or to be with another dog who will tolerate her until the boundaries are set with a person experienced in maintaining those boundaries. (She currently lives in a home with 2 other dogs but her foster stays on top of all play to make sure it's healthy play and separates when needed). She is a DREAM when it comes to people and is so deserving of an amazing life from here on out.

Mama Izzie

AVAILABLE Mama Izzie has come along way since she first arrived. Turns out, she’s actually a semi-social kitty who has lived her life in a feral cat colony until she became pregnant.

She’s two years old, so very pretty and really does love affection. Izzie is looking for a low-key home with a special someone willing to take time to really get to know her. She loves her new cat tree and playing with toys. Izzie is not feral and truly deserving of finding someone who will love her.

Izzie is spayed now and officially available for adoption. Interested in adopting, please submit an adoption application:


*Encore does not place pets on a first come first serve basis. Encore Animal Rescue is a foster based animal rescue- meaning all of our animals are in safe and loving homes with one of our amazing volunteers until they are adopted by their forever family. Our number one goal is to find the perfect match for both pet and adopter. We aim to provide as much stability and structure in the animals' new lives as possible. In order to achieve this goal, we require all potential adopters to follow our adoption process, beginning with the adoption application/contract. This process helps to minimize the risk of yet another move for the animals and gives them the best chance of finding their perfect home.

In the rare instance that a puppy is too small/young to be spayed or neutered prior to being placed, they go out with an adoption contract and altering must take place by 6 months of age; this is when adoption is finalized.

If your application is approved, someone will reach out to you and we will answer any questions you may have.
