Adoptable Dogs

All of our adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, up to to date on their shots and micro chipped. The adoption fee is $125 for adult dogs, and $175 for puppies. We ask that all members of the household come and meet the dog(s) you are interested in. Next, if you are interested in adopting, you ask that you fill out an Adoption Application, which can also be completed before your visit. We will then review the application and verify the information. If approved, you will be able to bring your new family member home as early as the next day. We want people to sleep on their decision before making a commitment so please come and visit as many times as you need to!

Since we don’t have official hours of operation you will have to make an appointment to come see us for a visit. Once the appointment has been booked, we will send you detailed directions to our location, which is off Clark Road just a few miles east of I-75 at exit 205 in Sarasota.

For more information about them, click on their pictures. To set up an appointment, please call (941) 924-5070 or email comments@satchelslastresort.org.

Cookie here. Satchel's rescued me several years ago and helped me raise my puppies. My puppies all found homes and Satchel's became my home. It's okay here and the people are great but I would so love a home to call my own and my very own people to love me. I'm an energetic girl and would do best in a home where I am included in the activities of the home. I love to run around the yard playing or go for nice long walks. I did have some separation anxiety when I was caring for my puppies and I'm not sure how it would affect me in a home, so I really need a home with someone who will help me work through any anxiety I have. I can also be an escape artist if I want to be - jumping fences to look for my people if I'm left alone. I am getting older now and haven't jumped a fence for a while but it would be best not to leave me alone in the yard. I love people and make friends with everyone I meet. People here say I'm a lover. Are you looking for a lover? If so, please come and meet me... Cookie is considered one of our special needs fur babies because we are unsure how severe her separation anxiety might be in a home. She weighs approximately 55 lbs and is guessed to be about 7 years old. For an appointment to meet Cookie, please email comments@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Meet Garcia. This handsome young boy has had a rough few months but today this sweet guy is happy and healthy and looking for his new forever home. Backing up a couple of months - someone decided to see if their dog would get along with Garcia, so they tied him to a tree in their yard and let their dog out. Apparently their dog didn't like poor Garcia and viciously attacked. Garcia, unable to protect himself or flee was severely wounded and needed approximately 100 staples. After spending almost 2 months in a cone while his wounds healed he is now pain free and ready to start the next chapter of his life. Garcia is guessed to be 1 1/2 to 2 years old and weighs 35-40 pounds. He's extremely high energy and loves to play. He likes to spend time with his people and doesn't care to be left alone. Despite his past experience, he gets along great with other dogs. He does need some training but is an intelligent boy who will learn with consistency.

So here we are a few months later and I'm totally healed, healthy and happy and hanging out at Satchel's waiting for my special person to come along and invite me to join their family. Is that you?

Belly rubs are great and I'm sure I would enjoy lounging around with you given the opportunity.   Wilbur was the only dog I ever wanted in my life so I'm looking for a home with no other dogs (or for that matter, no other 4 legged species).

Animal Services needed help so they called us.   All of Lizzie's puppies have been adopted and Lizzie awaits her turn.  Lizzie does have thunderstorm phobia and was probably an outdoor girl before she came to us. She was in a foster home for awhile and lived with two other dogs and small children. She was excellent there. However, at the shelter she is very selective of her canine companions.  She loves any attention from people and is truly wonderful with children. She enjoys walks and here favorite thing is car rides. She is very affectionate and loving. However, Lizzie does not like most other animals. She would do best in a home with a savvy dog owner with no other animals. She can be an escape artist if there is something on the other side of the fence that she is interested in.

Marley grew up with his best bud Ziggy and they were extremely bonded, even sleeping on top of each other. They spent the past few years at Satchel's together. Unfortunately, Ziggy recently passed away and Marley finds himself absolutely lost without his best friend. Marley is laid back and friendly. He is definitely a Heinz 57. But what he lacks in Pedigree he makes up in personality. Marley never really liked to chase balls but always loved to chase after Ziggy while he was in pursuit of the ball. I think now he'd prefer just to hang out with his people and get some petting time in. He does love car rides and walks and would be happy to enjoy the sites with you.   Marley is a senior boy at 10 years old, but has a lot of life left in him and wants nothing more than to become a part of a family for his remaining years.   For more information or to make an appointment to meet Marley , please email comments@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Hey there, Orlando here. I'd really love a home for the holidays. These nice people at Satchel's rescued me and fixed my torn ACL and it's been great hanging out here for a while but I'd sure love to have my own couch to share with people who just want to love me. I'm a laid back, chilled kinda guy. I walk great on a leash and don't need much in the way of exercise, although I do love going for car rides - can I call that exercise? I love tennis balls but I don't like to share my toys so a home with no other dogs would be best for me. I'm a big boy, weighing about 80 lbs, but I have a very gentle demeanor. The people here at the shelter call me "The Gentle Giant". Won't you come out and visit me and see for yourself? Orlando is guessed to be approximately 7 years old.

Hi there, Parker Ave here! Can you guess why I have such a strange name? Because that's where I was found - running down Parker Avenue! Lucky for me, someone grabbed me before I could get hit by those cars that seemed to be everywhere. I've spent the past few months in a foster home enjoying the company of my foster mom and the dogs and cats who I like to call my siblings, and learning how to be a perfect house mate. I'm at Satchel's now, waiting for you to come on out and meet me. I love everything about life - toys, people, animals - EVERYTHING! I was always gentle with the kitties in my foster home, but mom would sometimes say "I'm a rough player" when it comes to playing with the other dogs. As much as I love to play with other dogs, I adore snuggling with my person. Parker Ave is estimated to be approximately a year old and weighs around 50 lbs.

*** Special Needs *** Anyone looking for a senior girl who needs some extra special loving? That would be me, Phoebe. I love to be around people and am looking for a patient caregiver who can spend lots of time with me. I don't always see very well and I get confused when I'm outside on a leash and tend to walk in circles. The people here at Satchel's say I'm way to skinny and are working hard to put some fat on my bones. Phoebe is guessed to be approximately 12 years old.

Meet Romeo! This sweet boy has the most gentle and kind soul. He is beautiful inside and out. His eyes match his beautiful greyish/brown coloring. Romeo is a lover of all creatures and doesn’t have an aggressive bone in his body. He loves cats, dogs, deer, squirrels and birds and does not chase any of those even when he is off leash. He gets along great with people and would love a home with a family who would include him in their activities.  Romeo was found as an injured stray. After giving Romeo the surgery needed to fix his hip, he went into a loving foster home to recuperate. He's now fully recovered and, although he's living it up in his foster home, he would really, really, really, love a home and a family to call his own. Romeo is guessed to be between 1 and 2 years old and weighs approximately 50 lbs. For an appointment to meet him, please email comments@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070. *** Romeo is in a foster home and not at the shelter ***

Hey there Rosa here! I'm a big, happy girl who just wants my own person to hang out with. I like to run and play in the yard here at Satchel's but the best is when I go to the off site events and i get to lounge around in the sun. I ride well in the car and try to get "them" to take me for a ride at every opportunity. They call me a "lover" - must be because I'm always so waggy waggy when I see people I know and I love to give kisses. Although I do like other dogs, I'm a little protective of my food so I'd prefer to be in a home with no other animals that way I don't have to worry about someone trying to steal it from me. Rosa is estimated to be 4-6 years old and weighs approximately 60 pounds. For an appointment to meet her, please email comments@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Hey I'm Rosey and I'm looking for someone to love me for the rest of my days. I'm getting to be a senior girl at 8 years old but I still have a lot of spunk and so much love to give. I absolutely love people and wiggle my crooked little tail whenever anyone pays attention to me. On a hot summer day, I love playing with the water as it comes out of the hose. I like short walks but my most favorite thing to do is going for car rides. Car ride, car ride, car ride - YES PLEASE! I'll ride around with you all day if you'll let me. A canine companion is okay as long as they are nice to me and don't take the front passenger seat of the car as I do like to ride shot gun. Are you looking for a co-pilot, I'm here! Rosey is a laid back, easy going girl patiently waiting for her own bed in a loving home. For more information or to schedule an appointment to meet Rosey, please email comments@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Sandler is a great dog who has not had a lot of luck with owners in his life; and we are the third shelter he has called home, so he really needs someone who wants to spend time with him.  It is estimated that he was born in September 2010 and he weighs 55 lbs. He is a jumper and can’t be left alone in a yard (he’ll play with you, though, if you’ll stay with him), but he’d be perfect for someone who wants a walking or running mate. He got along with other dogs when he first entered shelter life, so he may once again – and he’d do best in an adult only household.  When it comes to adults, he loves them though.  He has become a favorite of all the volunteers at the shelter.  If there is more than one volunteer helping out during a shift, there is almost a fight about who will get to take Sandler out.  That is how great he is!

Hi, they call me Serenity here at Satchel's but I'm happy to be called anything you like as long as you give me attention. I have a lot of puppy energy and need lots of exercise and mental stimulation to keep my a happy and healthy girl. I'm currently spending my time in a foster home learning how to be the best dog I can be at such a young age. I enjoy playing with toys and know how to play fetch already. I love other dogs and also like to be near my human people. I've started learning some basic commands. Want to make me a part of your family and continue with my training? Please... Pretty please... Serenity is estimated to be approximately 6 months old. For an appointment to meet her, please email comments@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Hey you! Smiley here! They call me Smiley because I just can't help but smile most of the time. I'm guessed to be approximately 3 years young. I was transferred to Satchel's from Sarasota County Animal Services when it was determined I was extremely sick. Thankfully, my human friends at Satchel's and the wonderful Beach Veterinary Clinic made sure I got the care I needed to get better. After a few months of medical care, including heartworm treatment, I am a happy, healthy boy absolutely loving life and ready to start the next chapter in my forever home with my very own family. I love everyone I meet and want nothing more than to snuggle with someone once my playtime is over.   For more information about Smiley and/or to set up an appointment to meet him, please email comments@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Hey there! I'm Smokey! I'm a young, fun, loving, and playful boy! I am crate trained, walk well on a leash and know my basic commands; sit, stay, come and "get your toy"!! I also have a lifetime training contract so when I am adopted, you may decide to use this!   A few things I love are: long walks, giving lots of kisses, playing with my family, swimming, fetch and tug of war (especially in the pool). I prefer to be an only animal as I want all the attention to myself. What do you say - would you like to meet me so I can show you what a lover boy I am?      Smokey is 2-3 years and weighs 60-65 lbs.  To set up an appointment to meet him, please email comments@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Hello!! My name is Sterling. I'm estimated to be 4-5 years old and weigh 40-45 pounds. I enjoy having someone play with me and when playtime is over, I'll smother you with kisses and I absolutely LOVE to cuddle! I am a very good boy and love every human I meet. I came to Satchel's with an old leg injury, but the lovely people at the vet fixed me up and gave me lots of love, and treats too! My injury has left me walking kind of funny on my left rear leg, but it doesn't get me down! I still love to run and play. I was in a foster home with 2 dogs and 2 cats for a while and we all got along great. Unfortunately, due to no fault of my own, I now find myself back at the shelter and missing a home environment. I would love to meet you, maybe share a kiss or two! So what do you say?! If you would like an appointment to meet Sterling, please email comments@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Toby has grown up here at Satchel’s. He came to us with horrible Demodex mange. His skin was so inflamed and he had several bald patches. Well…this boy has come a long way. He is mange free and has quite a beautiful coat. The only thing we need to add this this boys success story is a forever home.  He is fantastic dog with lots of love to give. He is good with other dogs and would make a terrific companion. He still has lots of energy and while he does know some basic commands, he will need some additional training to be the perfect dog. Please call or email us if you would like more information about Toby.

Tonka is an incredibly energetic girl who is very eager to please. While she can be excitable, she wants nothing more than attention from those she loves. She can be a little leery of strangers but once she trusts you she will win your heart with her giant ears and exuberant personality. Tonka knows basic commands and walks well on the leash once her initial excitement over the prospect of going for a walk diminishes. Her absolute favorite toy is a Jolly Ball Romp-and-roll which she can swing around for hours. Tonka would do well in an active home with structured training. She will require an adult only home where she can be the only four-legged member.  For more information on Tonka, call or email us.  Satchel's Last Resort Animal Shelter 941-924-5070 comments@satchelslastresort.org
