Our Rescue Stories


Bella came to Metropet from RHR on June 3rd, 2017, for a Super Dog Adoption Event but she never made it to the event. While Bella was being kept at Metropet for the night she met Apollo and the two fell in love. Metropet staff informed Apollo's owner of his new found love, and met Bella that night at pick up. Mike & Kristine have been looking for another dog to add to their family for a little while now; Kristine grew up with Shepard's in her family so when she met Bella it was meant to be. Bella was so happy to have found Apollo, Mike & Kristine; it was a blessing for everyone. Bella loves her new brother & loves playing in the back yard with him.

Bree came to Metropet on June 17, 2017 after being at an event where she did not get adopted. She was adopted by an older couple on 7/3/2017 but it didn’t end up working out. Bree had a routine vet appointment the Monday she was brought back so Metropet took her to the vet. While at Warwick Animal Hospital she met her vet for that visit Geoffrey. After talking to Geoffrey and telling him Bree’s story he asked to take her picture to send to his wife because they have been looking for a dog for a while now. After the visit Geoffrey informed me that he & his wife wanted to adopt Bree. When we brought Bree back later that night to go to her new home the vet techs informed us that Geoffrey & his wife have been looking for a dog for a while now but haven’t found the right now; they said he hasn’t met the right one. Bree was the right one for him and she loves her new home near the beach & loves going for boat rides with her new mom & dad.

Faith came to Metropet as a foster from Road Home Rescue in July 22, 2017. On her first days with Metropet our staff and daycare/boarding dogs fell in love with her. Metropet had a few people interested in adopting Faith but for whatever reasons the potential adopters passed on Faith. About 2 months after Faith was still at Metropet, the owners Susan & Tim got a call from RHR that Faith was going to have to be sent back South (where she came from) if no one adopted her. Susan & Tim knew right away they had to adopt her; they wouldn’t allow her to be returned and thats when she become the Metropet Dog. Metropet's staff member Jamie fell in love with Faith the day she came to Metropet. Once Metropet adopted Faith Jamie took on more roles caring for Faith including walks, car rides, feeding & even sleep overs at her house. Jamie & her dad decided after a few months of time alone with Faith at home that they wanted to adopt her from Metropet. In December 2017 Faith went home to her forever home with Jamie & Jamie’s dad. Faith loves beach visits, hikes, car rides, playing with balls, begging for food, playing with her family & most of all coming to Metropet daily to see her friends!!
