HISTORY: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find FRANCES "FRANKIE" BERGSTEIN a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do!

NOTES FROM FOSTER HOME:  Frankie was abandoned by her previous owner who used her for breeding purposes. She was kept outside and given little to no attention. As such, she was heavily matted and is fearful of new places and people. She is, however, a total sweetheart and loves people, once she gets comfortable with them. She is learning things as a puppy would, never having been exposed to anything beyond her pen in the backyard. She is learning what it's like to be a pampered and loved member of family, to live inside with tons of toys, good food, companionship, and soft beds and couches. Her friend Grace came from the same background and is going through the same thing as Frankie; however, they are not a bonded pair and will be adopted separately. 

All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and Martingale collar (or a harness, if necessary), depending on each dog's particular needs. We also send home additional flea treatment and deworming medication for your future use.

Motley Zoo Animal Rescue is a volunteer run, foster based, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization based in Redmond, WA. Motley Zoo does not have a traditional shelter location, but instead, utilizes private foster homes which care for the animals individually, in a home environment, until a "furever" home is found.

Motley Zoo also runs "Rock Star Treatment" Dog Daycare & Training Studio in Redmond, WA which is a day-use facility and does not hold kennels of adoptable animals. The dogs there are owned animals who come to the facility while their families are at work and school so they can play and socialize in a safe environment. We dub this service our "Year-round" fundraising program which helps us support our rescue animals and the $15,000/ month vet bills we incur. This Studio location does have an Adoptable Cat Lounge, where cats may live until adoption, which is the exception to any aforementioned rules.

Please email and request an adoption application so we can get you started on the journey to finding a new, furry friend! Once you have been approved to adopt, then we can set up a meeting with the animal you have been matched with.
