Available Dogs

If one of our available orphans tugs at your heartstrings, please fill out our Adoption Application under the “Applications” tab and you will be contacted within 48 hours.  You must be approved to adopt before you can meet our dogs.  All applications require a home visit in order to be approved.

Adoption fees vary with each dog and range from $125-$375, with $325 being the price for most. Adoptions fees are used not only to rescue and place the dog you are personally adopting, but to aid in the future rescue and rehabilitation of other deserving dogs. Adoption fees are necessary; without fees, our rescue efforts would quickly come to an end.

Nero's Story

Nero. VSR ‘s handsome 5 year old amazing and unique orphan. Nero’s perfect home would be without young kids (because of his XL size and freakish obsession with frisbees) and without other dogs. A foster, or better yet a forever home for this amazing boy is what Nero needs. The kennel environment is taking its toll on our big ole’ boy.

This drop dead gorgeous 5 year old boy is Nero. He was surrendered to the local shelter for snapping at a teenager. He has some history of anxiety, but we think getting him adequate exercise is key to keeping his anxiety at bay. Nero LOVES to play frisbee and loves the kiddy pool. Nero is a typical aloof shepherd and proper doggy and human introductions are required. If you’d like to meet Nero or any of our orphans, the first step is filling out our online adoption application.

Wilson's Story

Meet beautiful, young Wilson! This pretty 1 year old girl was turned in as a stray at a local shelter, scared out of her mind! Not knowing what or why she ended up at this scary, noisy place, Wilson tried to keep everyone away from her, to protect herself from the horrifying unknown. Wilson is coming around, but still very unsure of new people, especially men. But one thing is for sure; this little girl LOVES her tennis balls. Once she warms up to you, she will cling to you and show her her impression of a tiny lap dog. Wilson still needs some time to decompress and learn that she is safe and no one is going to hurt her. Then we will get to know more about her and post an updated bio.

Kobe's Story

Meet Kobe. Kobe is a 5 1/2 year old male whose family became unable to give Kobe the life he deserved. The family struggled for months trying to create a home environment that Kobe was comfortable in, but ultimately it was determined that it was in Kobe’s best interest to live in a home where his anxiety would be kept to a minimum. Kobe is good with other large dogs. He will need a home without cats and young children. Kobe LOVES to have his belly rubbed and loves to play in the kiddy pool. Kobe has an eye condition called pannus that is easily managed with drops once a day. The drops cost about $45 a bottle and last 1 1/2 to 2 months. Please fill out our online adoption application if you are interested in meeting Kobe or any of our other orphans. It’s the first step in our adoption process.

Meet cutie-patootie, Cowboy. This little dumpling was turned in as a stray to the local shelter. As you can imagine, he’s pretty confused right now. We believe he is about 2 years old. We are letting him decompress for a few days, then we will start working on getting to know him. I can tell you that he is very sweet and takes treats very nicely.

Karbon's Story

This big, beautiful boy is Karbon. Picked up as a stray by Animal Control, the shelter listed him as 10 years old. Whether or not that is accurate, we can’t be sure. Karbon is very anxious and nervous, but will run and play if you actively engage him. During his first few nights at our vet clinic, Karbon had a seizure. He broke a few of his toenails during the episode, but has not had another seizure, so we are holding off on putting him on anti seizure meds for now. Karbon also does very poorly in a kennel or crate, and is more relaxed when loose in the home. Karbon did fine with another large dog when walked on leash together. Karbon is in need of a very patient and understanding foster or forever home. He is drop dead gorgeous, and we know that he, just like every other VSR orphan, deserves a home where his life will be changed forever. If you are interested in committing to giving Karbon the home he’s been waiting for, please fill out our online adoption or foster application. It’s the first step of our process.

Bryce's Story

Meet AMAZING 5 year old Bryce! This dog has energy and drive for days! We recently pulled him from the shelter where he was turned in because of his extreme prey drive. Bryce is happy and well behaved. Bryce needs a home where he will have a job to do. He needs an experienced home who can give him what he needs to be mentally stimulated and have his needs as a dog who likes to work met. Because of his extreme drive and energy, Bryce will need to go to a home without small children. He is also pushy with other dogs, so a home without other dogs or easy going big dogs would be best for him. No small animals for this guy. If you can give Bryce everything he needs to be his best, please fill out our online adoption application. It’s the first step in our adoption process.

A’ja's Story

Meet beautiful but very emaciated, 7 year old A’ja. ( pronounced Asia) This sad but very sweet girl was picked up by Animal Control in a pretty rough part of Las Vegas. She came to us weighing only 45.5 lbs!!! We have no idea how long she’d been on the mean streets of Vegas, trying to fend for herself before Animal Control came to her rescue. A’ja needs some time in the hospital to recover from her spay surgery, get a senior wellness check done and slowly and safely get some weight on her bones. Her coat is dirty and full of mats, but in the spots that there are no mats, the fur is soft like a baby bunny’s fur. Please stay tuned and continue to check back for more updates on A’ja. This precious soul has been let down by humans for the last time. That is a promise VSR will never break.

Chyna's Story

Meet sweet senior Chyna! Surrendered by her family after 9 years of being a loyal companion, even though she never saw the inside of the house. All that’s changed now, and Chyna is living happily in a foster home. And who would have thought that this classic shepherd girl would live harmoniously with cats? If a cat will give a hiss and smack Chyna on the nose once, Chyna is happy to steer clear of the kitties. Chyna prefers to be the only dog in the house, and at her age, if that’s what Chyna wants, that’s what Chyna shall have. Young children aren’t anything Chyna wants to deal with either, as they can be unpredictable and kind of scary to her. If you think you have the dream home Miss Chyna has been fantasizing about all these years, please fill out our online adoption application. It’s the first step of our adoption process. Chyna does have some arthritis at the base of her tail, but the x rays show her hips are in great shape. She easily hops up onto the furniture without any problems. We would travel around the world to give Chyna the wonderful home she deserves! So get busy, and get packing. Chyna’s ready to take on the world with her new family!
