The Holiday Season is fast approaching. Best wishes for a wonderful holiday and a New Year of peace and happiness. Celebrate the Season! We have much to be thankful for. We have helped many animals in need this year thanks to your support.
SOME OF OUR 2017 GREAT SAVES
Hawk had severe injuries; two broken legs (fractured tibia on one and fractured knee on the second), and lacerations on his chest, ear, and one of his legs, and a collapsed lung. He had his needed surgery and completely healed. Happily he has been adopted!
Bubbles had her femur head broken off. Her injury was simpler to repair than Hawk’s and therefore quicker to heal. She was immediately able to use her leg with an occasional limp. Happily she has been adopted!
was rescued from the shelter after presumably getting hit by a car which fractured her tail and both her right and left pelvic bones. She had her needed surgery. She is still looking for her forever home! Click on her name for photos and her bio.
Prinze, a 14 year old Shepherd mix, was a stray picked up by the shelter. He was a gentle soul with many old age health issues. He had hip dysplasia, knee and elbow issues, poor hearing and eyesight, and hypothyroid. We wanted to give him a home to live out the rest of his life in with a comfortable bed and warm house. Sadly, Prinze has crossed the rainbow bridge.
While at the shelter rescuing Prinze, they approached us about Princess. They told us her heartbreaking story. She came in to the shelter with rat poisoning and survived, then contracted parvo and survived. They adopted her out, and then was in a car accident with her adopters. Her adopters sadly dumped her. Back at the shelter, they felt Princess’s shattered leg needed to be amputated. We had her surgery and saved her leg! She is still looking for her forever home! Click on her name for photos and her bio.
Skittles and her 4 pups, Snickers, Razzle, Taffy, and Tootsie, were rescued from the shelter as strays. The pups were only 3 weeks old. Happily, all have been adopted!
Dasher, Bell, and Cindy Lou Who – all 3 girls were picked up as strays on the same street and all were pregnant. They have all had their puppies and will be up for adoption soon.
I could go on and on about our wonderful saves. We pride ourselves in saving those in most need, those that don't show well in the shelter, and those that just need a second chance.

We always need monetary donations to continue to provide for these animals. You still have time to make a tax-deductible donation for the 2017 tax year. Click on the donate button below. We have medical expenses, such as spaying and neutering and daily health care. Plus, we rescue medical dogs from the shelter, for example Disney and Princess with fractures requiring surgery. Thank you to all of our generous supporters and volunteers who help make this all possible.
We are always in need of fosters. We cannot save more lives without fosters. Being a foster is very rewarding, knowing that you are saving a life. Some of you feel you will fall in love, yes you will. But the reward outweighs this fear. There are so many dogs who need our help. Please consider fostering. You see the wonderful home they are adopted too and then you can save another dog in need. It is an amazing feeling. If you feel you can open your home to an animal and want to foster, please contact me. We provide the food and pay for the medical expenses. We ask you to provide a loving home and drop them off and pick them up on our adoption days.
Thanks again to everyone for your support and let’s make 2018 the best year ever for our furry friends!
A little smile, A word of cheer, A bit of love from someone near, A little gift from one held dear, Best wishes for the coming year!
