Our current featured pet is Hershey.

Hello, my name is Hershey...yes, I am sweet as the candy! 
I am a 2 yr old Chi-weenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund) who is a
very dapper guy that loves to get dressed up (for all occasions) and go out on the town. I love to explore in the park, meet new people and see what is going on in the world. Don’t get me wrong, I love adventure, but my favorite activity is chilling on the couch watching TV with my foster mom and brother! We do often have differing opinions on what to watch and about our favorite TV shows!

My foster mom has bought me all kinds of outfits to wear and I am very good at letting her dress me up. I love hanging out with other dogs but I am also very happy to just chill on my own. l do like those little people too! I don’t like those loud thunder and lightning storms as they really scare me. To make me feel better my foster mom will wrap me up in my favorite blanket for protection.

I’ve been living with my foster mom and brother for a year now and I really love them but I hear there is nothing better than having a forever home. I did ask Santa last year if he could help me find my people and my forever home. I told him I had been really good.

​Please check out my Profile on the Adoptable Dog's page where you'll see all my photos and a video.  Use our Contact Us Page to ask to meet me! My foster mom schedules all my meetings so she will figure out a good time for us to get together. Looking forward to hearing from you soon and showing you all my skills. 

Welcome to "Cuz i Matter" Animal Rescue

Current Adoptions since May 2016:

Thank you for stopping by. i am very happy you are here because that may mean you are here to help me and my friends find our furever home!

i don't know if you know this, but all of my friends here are wonderful souls.
We may have had hard times,
but we want to be everything you want us to be.

i talked with all my friends here and we agree; 
when you feel lonely, sad, happy, confused, scared or peaceful,
we will be there for you.
You will never be alone and you will always be loved.
We promise!

i get very excited when your face lights up
as you look at our pictures and read about who we are. 
(Pssst... you can see all of us dogs and cats right now!)

i know you may not be able to adopt us all, and that's ok.
i just hope you meet one of us that makes your heart skip a beat.

Be sure to also look at all the ways you can become a member
of our CiMAR family!  Even if you cannot take one of us home,
you can help us get adopted by fostering, sponsoring
or making a donation to keep us all fed and healthy.  

We really appreciate that.  My tail is wagging right now!

There are lots of ways to participate and help save animals
along with us. First,  check out How you Can Get Involved .
Or  Come Play With Us at one of our festive fundraisers and 
meet some sweet dogs at our many adoption events.

Don't forget Ellie Mae's "Paw Talk" . She is super proud of that!
