Meet Palomo

Palomo is a sweet adorable loving senior Westie who is approximately 14 years old. He loves to snuggle and give kisses. He always wants to be right next to you snuggling, and watching Netflix too! He is blind in his left eye and partially blind in his right eye. But don’t let the blindness fool you! He can and will find you anywhere in the house to snuggle with you.  Palomo is looking for a female only home.  What can we say - he's a ladies man!

His legs are pretty short as Westie‘s legs are, so his foster does carry him a lot to speed up the going outside duties. He likes to be carried. He doesn’t run these days, but has no health issues with walking.  He can go up the 2 deck stairs with no problem.  Given his age and blindness, he would prefer to be the only dog in the home.  Playing is just not his thing anymore.

Chicken is his favorite, absolutely goes crazy when he smells it. He takes treats and chicken very gently.

Palomo is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken, and neutered. 

Palomo's adoption fee is $175.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting Palomo fill out an Online Application today!

Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.

Palomo is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
