After More Than 5 Years In A Shelter, Sloane Needs A Home!

Sloane hasn’t had the easiest life, in fact her life has been downright rough! In what should have been the prime of her life, this sweet girl found herself abandoned in a town shelter – that was approximately 5 years ago! When she arrived at the shelter, Sloane was skinny, missing fur, and full of sores. She had also likely had at least one litter of puppies. This, combined with her desire to be an only pet, meant that Sloane was overlooked time and time again by potential adopters.   They didn’t see what volunteers saw, which was an incredibly loving young lady that thrived on praise and positive reinforcement. 
After several years of unsuccessfully searching for a home, the tough decision was made to transfer Sloane to a facility upstate that would give her the additional training she needed, while working to find her an appropriate home.  Just when it was thought that Sloane’s dreams had come true, she was returned to the facility due to a change in housing situation.   A subsequent series of events that were out of Sloane’s control, meant that she would soon be searching for another place to stay – that is when Road to Home Rescue stepped in and brought her back to Long Island.
Since arriving back on Long Island, Sloane has been in boarding at a veterinary clinic.   While it is certainly not the ideal situation, she is safe, warm and fed.   Volunteers try to visit her daily, taking her on long walks and trips to the park, but those trips always end with the heartbreak of putting her back in the kennel and looking at her sad eyes staring out.   No dog should spend their life in a kennel – Sloane needs a family and home of her own!  
Sloane is now approximately 6-years-old.   She is fun, active and playful.   She loves going for walks, but is just as content to snuggle.   She also thinks and car rides and the occasional trip to Starbucls for a puppacino are simply ‘pawsome’!   Sloane is spayed and up-to-date with her vaccines.   She is best suited to an experienced home where she will be an only pet.   If you are willing to open your heart and your home, as well as give her the training and guidance she needs, you will be reward tenfold by the joy this little lady will bring to your life.
