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.

A little story about a girl named Cherish and her journey. She was found tied up and left with no food and only rain water collected in a bowl for drinking. She was picked up by Lake County Animal Control and given immediate attention and love by their wonderful staff and caring volunteers. She was bought to our attention and the actions to save her began. Heartworm positive, extremely emaciated, upper respiratory infection. It was touch and go at the beginning, but slowly and surely she began to flourish. With many small meals throughout the day she started to put on weight. She began to regain strength and mobility. Our girl was fighting to survive. And survive she did!!! After 7 months of care, love, and nutrition Cherish is ready for a home and lap to call her own. Cherish is a little insecure and gets anxious when her favorite people leave her alone. She adores petting and belly rubs and just wants to hang out with her people. If you have a little time to help this beautiful girl feel secure and loved in a home of her own, please come out to Satchel's and meet her. Cherish is estimated to be 2-3 years old.

*SPECIAL NEEDS: SEPARATION ANXIETY* 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.

I have a ton of energy and happily bounce around on my 3 legs. I love my walks, although I am slowing down in my old age and can no longer walk very far. I enjoy playing fetch with the ball (although I don't necessarily bring it back to you every time, I just want you to come and get it from me), and absolutely love love love jumping in the water in the tubs we have here at Satchel's. And, of course, car rides are high on my list. 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). Do you have the perfect home for me where I will be showered with love and kisses throughout my senior years, please, please?? I'm waiting...   Ilean is 9 years old and weighs approximately 50 lbs.

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.

Meet Mascot! Mascot is a young boy, perhaps about 10 months old. He's shy when he first meets a new person but warms up quickly and shows his lovable side. He's a puppy who hasn't been introduced to a lot of the outside world so new environments and situations can be a little overwhelming for him. Mascot is currently learning basic obedience and attending some low key off site events to help him face the world without fears. This young boy is looking for love and reassurance and will make a wonderful addition to any family who is able to give that to him. Mascot currently weighs 38 lbs. He will likely fill out and gain some weight but probably won't be a particularly large dog. For an appointment to meet him, please email comments@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Niya here. I'm currently in a foster home learning how to be the best girl I can be. I adore my foster mom and follow her everywhere just hoping she'll stop and talk to me or better yet give me some of those belly rubs that I love so much! She calls me a couch potato but I'm just trying to be close and get some cuddling time in. I love to play with all kinds of toys. I know basic obedience and come when I hear my name called. I am crate trained but would much prefer to sleep on the bed with you if you'll let me. I love everyone and get along great with the dogs and cats in my foster home.     Niya is estimated to be approximately 18 months old and weighs 60 lbs.

** SPECIAL NEEDS - GUARDS HIS TOYS ** 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 75 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 8 years old. For an appointment to meet him, please email info@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

*** 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.

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 5-6 years old and weighs approximately 60 pounds. For an appointment to meet her, please email info@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.

Rumor is an active young dog who was born in January of 2015. She came to Satchels from animal services who found her as a stray. She loves attention and is very affectionate. She also loves to play with toys. We are currently working on her leash manners. She will require further training to make her the perfect dog. She does like to play with other dogs but should be the only canine in the family.  If you would like more information about Rumor, please call or email us.

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!

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'm looking for an active family who will spend lots of time with giving me fun exercise. 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 3 years and weighs 60-65 lbs.  To set up an appointment to meet him, please email info@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. Once playtime is over, she easily settles down for a cuddle. 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 an appointment to meet Tonka, please email info@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.
