So many animals need loving homes.  Do you have room for one?

AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION


TANDY NEEDS A GOOD HOME
THIS IS AN URGENT SITUATION
This is Tandy.  She is a very fun, loving and cuddly girl.  She loves to go for car rides, loves to play fetch with just about anything.  Tandy has already been treated for advanced heart worm disease and recently had a mass removed from her neck.  She's doing quite well.  She has a very strong prey drive so needs to be an only fur-child.  She does NOT like kids so needs a home with no children around.  She is crate trained and very well mannered. 
You can see more pics and videos of Tandy on her Facebook page called Tandy's Homeless.


RED NEEDS A HOME
THIS IS AN URGENT SITUATION
This is Red.  He arrived at the rescue in spring, 2014 with advanced heart worm disease and severe demodex mange.  In addition, his immune system was compromised and it has taken a year to get him back to normal.  He has specific dietary and supplement needs until the vet releases him from that, if ever.  He's a great dog.  People always stop to pet and play with him.  He doesn't care for other dogs, particularly small animals.  He needs a home with no other pets and someone with pibble experience preferably.  Red loves to play fetch with just about anything but his favorite is the Frisbee.  He can sometimes jump about 5 feet and catch it.  He is a big baby and will present his belly to you if he thinks you'll give it a good rub.  You can see more pics and videos of Red on his Facebook page called Homeless Red.

***WE HAVE A VERY GENEROUS OFFER OF 6 MONTHS OF RED'S SPECIAL FOOD FOR THE PERSON WHO ADOPTS HIM***

Adopting a new pet is a big responsibility and should not be taken lightly. You should plan on caring for the new family member for 10-18 years. It can be costly to raise a pet. Some of the considerations are food, heartworm meds, flea preventative, shots, annual health care checkup, accidents, illnesses, etc. You should plan for your pet in your monthly budget. Additional questions to ask are: Am I ready to spend time with a pet every single day? Am I up to walking my pet? Cleaning up the muddy paw prints, potty accidents on the carpet, and other messes made in the house and yard? Am I up to facing possible destruction of shoes, furniture or other household items? Do I have the patience needed to train a dog? Can I really afford it if my dog gets sick or eats something he/she shouldn't? These are all very valid things to take into consideration before adopting a new pet.

Now for the good stuff! Do you have room in your life for a new best friend? One who will give you unconditional love? Your new friend will be there waiting for you when you get home, lovingly greeting you with tail wags and kisses. Dogs have their own personalities, likes and dislikes. But above all, they love their people no matter what. Sometimes they will
do tricks and sometimes they are just plain cute no matter what they are doing. But you will no doubt feel the love. It's amazing!  And you'll experience the joy. Some people are concerned about little things like 'shedding' but don't let that stop you from adopting one of these wonderful, amazing creatures!! I tell people to use a lint roller and a vacuum! I think it's sad to not experience the loving relationship with a pet over something silly like that.  Finally it's been shown that pets lower blood pressure and stress and that makes them good for your health!   It makes me wonder how anyone can do without a pet.   Nevertheless, it's a great undertaking for which you must be prepared.

Donald's Handy WorkIS THIS WORK TOO HARD?

Some days I wonder how I got into this. Dogs running around in all directions, barking, whining, peeing and fighting; giving them one bath after another; separating the alpha males; chasing the one that got loose in the neighborhood and refuses to come! Then there are some who like to chew on things like furniture, books and knick knacks; tearing up every single dog toy and 'de-stuffing' it; carrying laundry, shoes, purses and remote controls into the backyard; jumping on my furniture; soiling their crates; then I'm walking the yard cleaning up all the brown 'presents' they left.  It feels like it's almost constant cleaning up after dogs! The carpet cleaner has become a permanent fixture in my living room. And then comes feeding time, major chaos with dogs fighting to get someone else's food before they're locked in their crates to eat in peace. I can't forget about the dog bite that got infected and ran up my medical bills.  All the money spent on vet bills, dog food, cleaning products, medicines and various dog supplies is mind boggling! Times like these are frustrating and challenging. One day during such an episode, someone who was there with me looked at me in frustration and said "Is this really worth it?”  I hesitated, looked around at them, took a deep breath and said "Yes! Yes, it's worth it. They are alive and happy and that's what matters!" with a smile on my face.

Yes! It is worth it. It may sound rough but it's not so bad considering lives are being saved and dogs are being made healthy and happy. Nothing worth having comes easy and that includes this type of work. But for the first time in my life, I see the reward of a job well done that I think is actually fulfilling.  It's a beautiful thing when a sick dog finally gets better and you know he's going to survive; or when one of them looks at you with their sweet eyes, wags their tails and wants nothing more than to give you a wet kiss and let you know they love you.

Yes, they are definitely worth it.
