Help Orphan Puppies - Special Needs Dogs in the US

We were once again contacted about a pregnant dog at a high kill shelter.  No one was stepping forward for her as she was considered special needs, not only due to her pregnancy, but also issues with her left high and testing heartworm positive.  Thankfully we had the space to accept her but unfortunately the vet felt she was too close to delivering to safely travel to us.  We were so grateful when a local volunteer (with pregnant dog experience none the less!) offered to keep her until she delivered.  When the babies were just shy of two weeks old, they traveled to us!  We are so happy to report that all 8 babies survived and are thriving!  They will be moving into individual foster homes where they will remain for a couple of weeks before being ready for adoption. 

We continue to have several dogs in private boarding, one of which who has been with us for over a year, but we refuse to give up on her!  We are committed to our dogs for the rest of their lives and believe that one day we will find the right home for her and the others!  We also had a pitbull returned to us recently.  Sadly she was only in her home for a year when the people decided they were not committed to her for life.  But we will work to find her a deserving and loving home! 

None of these efforts could be brought to fruition without your continued support.  We are so grateful for any donation as we operate solely on donations.  

We wish you all a very safe and happy summer!   Thank you!

We took in a beautiful mom, Winnie, and her 9 newborn babies in January.  They were saved from a high kill shelter that sadly has no other options that to euthanize pregnant dogs or moms with newborns.  Luckily that was not the fate for our Winnie and her 9!  All of the babies are thriving and have moved to loving foster homes and will be ready for adoption in about another week.  We have our maternity room sterilized and ready for the next mom!

We continue to support several long termers who sadly have not found homes of their own.  We pride ourselves in the fact that we refuse to euthanize a dog simply because they have not found a home or their medical needs prevent them from finding a home.  We currently have Meesha, a beautiful black lab mix, that we have had in private boarding for over 2 years.  We continue to be hopeful that we will find the perfect home for this sweet girl.

We are so grateful to all of you for continuing to support our efforts.  As we operate on 100% of your donations, we truly could not do it without all of you.

Thank you!

Hard to believe that 2015 is coming to a close!  We are happy to report that we saved 40 dogs this year, including 3 pregnant dogs!  Quite an accomplishment for a rescue that does not have a facility and is comprised of all volunteers who work full time jobs!  We continue to have several adult dogs that are still in need of adoption, including 4 that are in training with our behaviorist!  We also continue to support three dogs that are in hospice with us.  

We are so grateful to all of you for all of your support - we have struggled financially this year but continue to move forward knowing that there are still so many to be saved.

We wish you all a very happy and safe holiday season and are forever grateful for your continued support.

It is hard to believe that fall is coming.  The summer quickly went by, although the number of dogs in need continued to keep us busy.  Haley's babies (from our last report) are almost all adopted.  Haley continues to be with us but we promise her that her forever home will be found.  Our beautiful Chloe returned to us and is now in the capable hands of our behaviorist who is working with her to redirect her energy to something positive.  We continue to have several long termers in private boarding so your continued support is essential for us to continue our work.  We continue to be so grateful to all of you for supporting us.  Thank you.

The summer season came quickly upon us!  It seems like just yesterday we were fighting the blizzard to drive to Pennsylvania to pick up our last pregnant dog.  Now we have welcomed Haley and her babies into our fold.  Both moms were saved from a high kill shelter where they were in eminent danger.  People frequently ask why we take on the daunting project of a mom and babies and the answer is simple, these dogs are the most in need.  Sadly shelters frequently euthanize pregnant dogs and moms and newborn babies as it helps in controlling the population and moms and young babies simply do not survive in a shelter environment. 

On a happy and positive note – Haley and her babies are now safe and in a loving foster home.  They are all thriving, even the runt who is half the size of his siblings at almost 4 weeks.  We have scheduled their first vet appointment and look forward to our vet meeting this new family.

We would like to thank all of you as we could not continue to do the work we do without your support.  We hope that you will continue to support us and all of the wonderful dogs we continue to save.  Thank you.
