Love Conquers Fear in a Heartwarming Adoption

Posted on Monday, June 24th

Love Conquers Fear in a Heartwarming Adoption By: Tamara Prasad, Volunteer Manager A week ago we welcomed a family into the dog shelter. The dad and daughter were so excited to meet the dogs, but the mom was outside pacing. I opened the door and invited her inside. She was shaking and extremely fearful. She told me her story. As a child her mother instilled a fear in both her and her sister of dogs. At 49 years old, this woman had never touched a dog. Not even once. She had been so scared and extremely fearful all this time. The family fell in love with Wyatt. A timid… READ MORE >

Leaning Lenny is Bulletproof!

Posted on Monday, June 3rd

Leaning Lenny is Bulletproof! Just like Superman, our boy Leaning Lenny seems to be bulletproof! We first heard of Lenny through an urgent email from Animal Control. They had a 9-year-old, heartworm positive miniature pinscher in pain with a badly injured leg, and no money or space to care for him. If he didn’t find a rescue that day, he would be euthanized in the morning. We didn’t know what had happened to him, but we knew we had to help! We stepped up to save him and named him Leaning Lenny. He quickly visited our vet for X-rays. Turns out, Lenny had been… READ MORE >
