Bogart is a 16 pound Shih Tzu cross who is 11 years old. He and his housemate Shayna came to us after a lengthy stay alone in an apartment.  Kindly people fed them and finally got them help ... us. Bogart is going in for Cryptorchid surgery and a dental before he can be adopted. He is working on potty manners but we expect that now that he is let out on a schedule he will relearn what he has forgotten.

Rescue donation $300. 


Walle, a 5 month old white/cream male standard Poodle came into rescue when it was very apparent that a family member was allergic. Although touted as the least allergy producing breed of dog (along with the Bichon Frise), Poodles can still cause allergies especially before Poodle puppies get their adult “hair”. Walle is a puppy but according to his foster Mom, a very nice and mostly calm puppy. We are accepting applications. 


Hershey,  a 10 year old 20 pound Female  Shih Tzu/Poodle cross came to us because her family signed a lease for an apartment that didn’t accept pets. The darling photos that they sent of her didn’t show that there is a problem that needs to be addressed either. She is here now and we will be investigating her issues.

Stay tuned for updates on Hershey.

Meet GiGi an 8 year old, 10 pound Poodle who has a story to tell. The rage right now is to bring up dogs from the South that you pick from a website with cute photos. What happened to GiGi and probably countless other dogs is that once here...if the match is not a good one for either dog or family, as was the case with GiGi, it’s a problem!  Yes, the Southern rescue will take the dog back but the contract states 14-28 DAYS before the transport can arrange for pick up. We were called to help by the family. Through a myriad of back and forth emails, texts, tears, phone calls between the Southern rescue, the family and us, GiGi is here. And now we have this darling little girl WITH HEARTWORM!!!!

Of course she is in treatment...a long drawn out affair of about 120 days with fingers crossed that all goes well. 
Please keep this very sweet girl in your thoughts and prayers. The treatment is long, hard, expensive and totally avoidable.
