She is afraid of loud noises of any kind.  For more information about Ava and/or to set up an appointment to meet her, please email info@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

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.

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.

** 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!

Meet Smiley! Smiley may only be approximately 5 years old but he has probably been through more in his lifetime than anyone would ever want an animal to go through. Smiley came to us extremely ill and emaciated, his body revealing many scars. This poor boy appeared to have been through the wars. Things people had put him through and yet, since that first day, he has had nothing but smiles for us all at Satchel's. It took months of stabilizing Smiley's immune system before we could start his heartworm treatment. For the first year he was at Satchel's, he wasn't allowed to run in the yards or get much exercise. And yet, he just kept on smiling. Smiley is now a happy, healthy guy just waiting for someone to come along and make him a part of the family he so deserves. Smiley adores people but would prefer to be the only four legged in the home. He tolerates dogs but would prefer they live somewhere else. If you're looking for a couch potato and a lover who just wants to spend time with you, consider meeting Smiley. Please email info@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070 for an appointment to meet him.

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.

* SPECIAL NEEDS - SOME STRANGER DANGER * Look at this handsome boy! Watson is a big boy who just wants to be a dog. He's an interesting dog in that he loves some people at first site and others not so much so introducing him to strangers can be a little difficult. He would do best in a home with low traffic where he can get to know and trust the people coming through his territory. He likes to sit on your lap and is very affectionate but he doesn't care to be smothered in any way or have people in his face. He likes to play with ropes and chewy toys and sits like a perfect gentleman in the car. This boy is looking for someone to bond with who understands him. He'll be your loyal companion for life if you're the one for him. Watson is guessed to be 4-5 years old and weighs approximately 70 lbs. For an appointment to meet him, please email info@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Hi Willy here. I'm currently in a foster home waiting for the perfect person to come along and take me into their family. I was with my mom for many years but she had to leave me behind when she went into an assisted living place. I love to play with toys and will run and fetch the ball but I'm not always great at bringing it back to you. I like meeting people and am always gentle if they want to give me a treat or two. I always loved sitting on my mom's lap and snuggling. I enjoy running around in the yard and going on walks. I've never lived with another dog but I am friendly with most dogs and would probably be fine living with another canine in the family. Willy is 7 years old and weighs 14 pounds. For an appointment to meet him, please email info@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.
