An Angel Went Home

It is with great sadness that Castaway Pet Rescue share with you the passing of one of our Castaway Family members... Heather Marchant, 34 years young! To cancer. A true animal rescuer, total volunteer and the most awesome Foster Mom. Her door was always open and there was NEVER too many!
Heather would often tell our director "Don't be mad but there was just one more I couldn't leave behind." 

We know that Heather will continue her rescue journey with loving all the animal souls at the Rainbow Bridge and welcome many more souls to come home with open loving arms ♥
Heather it is a sad day for us but we know you are no longer in pain. Rest in peace our dear friend. It is a Happy Day in Heaven ♥ Until we are together again ♥

$50 off our featured adoptable adoption fee!

Meet Dakota! Due to health reasons, his parents had to move into a nursing home and unfortunately they do not accept dogs. Dakota is a 6 yr old male min pin mix. He weights 30 pounds and is neutered, micro chipped, and current on shots. Dakota is a sweet dog once he gets to know you. He has been with his family his whole life and needs someone to be patient with him. He gets a little nervous around strangers and would fit well in a home with older adults without young kids. Once he gets to know you, he will never leave your side and will always be laying next to you. Could you give this faithful companion the forever home he needs? Fill out an application today!

If you are interested in adopting, please go to our website at and fill out an adoption application. An adoption counselor will contact you. Please bring any dogs, children, and decision makers to your appointment. Be prepared to adopt and take your new family member home that day if we have a match.

Please note that adoption counselors will only know of your interest if you submit an application. They do not see emails sent to the administration email account. The adoption counselor can answer your questions when they call after receiving your application. Please remember we are an all volunteer organization.
