It is always such a miracle when we are lucky enough to meet our fur children. I am amazed and happy that in this big world Charles-in-Charge (CC) and I were in the same place at the same time. All Breed Dog Rescue was in my local pet supply store with a collection of dogs who needed homes. I saw CC and fell in love. His mom was rescued from a thrift store and it was later discovered that she was carrying pups and he was one of them. All Breed Dog Rescue in Yucaipa took care of him and loved him until we found eachother. He is such a joy - always happy which makes me happy. He is only a year old, so we have many more wonderful years to spend together.
We've had many cats before but none like Peaches. Looking around at the shelter we saw many cats. Our little sister Jayda looked at Peaches and fell in love. After leaving the shelter we asked dad if we could get a cat and when dad said yes we were right back at the shelter. Jayda was still playing with Peaches. My mom didn't like orange/red cats. She tried to get Jayda to look at other cats but she refused. Finally we read about Peaches. We learned that Peaches was found abandoned in a trailer as a kitten and was rescued shortly after being discovered. When they let her out Peaches reached into another cats cage and took some food and ate it in front of the cat's face! I just knew we were going to be the best of friends. Now Peaches is in a loving home where she can run around and cause mischief for people and dogs! Peaches is our fluffy little soldier. She had a fractured leg from falling off a roof and had had seven screws inserted and when she wasn't supposed to jump around she still jumped on the couch and chair like a pro. When my mom had to wake me up at 6:45 in the morning, to make sure that she did Peaches knocked over tapes that my dad had on a table along with coins. She also slept in weird places and positions. Places like the sink and the bathtub, with positions like having her body stretched out so it was completely straight with her paws out or on her back with her foot in her mouth. Since Peaches "adopted us" she is much happier now! And deep inside her heart she will always have a special place for all of us.
We found her on petfinder.com. Her name was Cocoa back then and she was rescued by Dawn's Canine Rescue in New York State from a kill shelter in Tennessee. We got her when she was about 9 weeks old. Soon we discovered that Cocoa was the perfect puppy, a smart, loving and adorable dog - getting along perfectly with our 3 kids and our rescued cat - so smart and fast learning that we decided the name Jackie to be more appropriate. Today (only a few months later) Jackie is a full member of our family - we could never imagine not to have her !! And thanks to dedicated people like Dawn and the people from Petfinder Jackie has found a family and a future ! Thank you !
Snoopy is hunting dog,as a puppy less than a month old he was left all alone in the small cage in the yard close to my workshop.He was crying so loud for couple of days before I find him.He was so weak and skinny.From the moment I put him in my pullover he slept for days..Man who left it there came to me to ask his dog back.We where arguing about two months until he finally took the dog from me and put it in the same cage.It took me lot of trouble to find the place he live and take back the Snoopy.He is wonderful dog!
Midnight was unwanted, less than a month old Kittie thrown in a basement to hunt the mouses with two rottweilers around it!It was so quiet and skinny.I took him home.I didn't know how they are going to react on each other,but I was so happy to see that they love each other from the moment they met.Midnight is very special cat.He is gentle and calm full of love for everyone.Never scratch,never fight and always close to Snoopy and us.They never make mess in the house,they kiss us for good night and wake us up in the morning with hugs and kisses.They play together sleep together,eat together..I wish all the people could be so lovely and gentle like them.
Five three week old little puppies were found in the parking lot of a pancake house and were brought to me. When I saw Beethoven I knew he was sent to me. He has brought joy and laughter into my and my 13 years old Broomhilda's life.
Our little Mittens had been a mere 2 weeks old when someone left her in the vestibule of a Wal-Mart, one Saturday morning just over 6 years ago. A bunch of folks looked at her, but she fell asleep on my wife's shoulder; we were hooked and took her home.
Nursing a baby kitten is not exactly easy, but she was worth it!
Our vet said she may have been the runt of her litter, but that's not true any more. She is full-sized now, and a real princess!
On the left is Charlie, that I adopted from my local SPCA. When I went to "check him out" at the shelter he ran along side the fence wanting to play with the other dogs and when I called out his name (Spence at the time) he ran and jumped into my lap. I knew he was the one for me. He was sick when I got him and very skinny. The SPCA provided me a free vet visit and we got Charlie well and he's nice and healthy!
A family friend found Lily, on the right, in the streets, looking as though she just had puppies. After no one claimed her and waiting for what seemed like forever, I adopted her and she became exactly what Charlie and I needed. He got a new friend and I got an absolute doll, who loves to sleep in my lap when I study and make sure I wake up in the mornings. They are both so precious to me and really show unconditional love.
Lucy was one of several hundred dogs rescued by the Humane Society of Missouri during Hurricane Katrina. We fostered her for three months but no one ever came forward for her. What could we say? By then she was like family, so we adopted her. That was almost five years ago! Blessings can come out of disaster!
Three summers ago my son called me to say that his roommates were getting ready to use a stray dog for target practice to hone their bow shooting. I told him to keep an eye on them and the dog and I would be over there in a few minutes. I think the 15 minute trip only took me about 7 minutes that day. I arrived and they had this small, stocky dog tied to a porch post. I untied him and put him in my truck and headed home. He stayed crouched down inside a tire the whole way.
My first intention was to find him a good home. Several weeks went by and my roommate asked me if I had a home for him yet. A few people called, but upon hearing he was an unfixed, un-housebroken male dog that didn't play well with others, they said, "No thanks."
Corky was worming his way into my heart, and every time the phone rang my heart would fall until I found out that the person calling wasn't calling about a dog.
At the time, we had a yard full of dogs-raising Rat Terriers and having other beloved pets, and we did not need another.
But Corky stayed. Today he is housebroken, has learned to play with others, loves to play fetch (rather keep-away), and is an avid bird "chaser".
We love the little bugger and can't imagine our lives without him.
At about 20 pounds, Corky looks like he is part Bassett and part Corgi. His ears are Corgi, but his body is Bassett. His face though, looks Beagle. An interesting mix to look at, but inside that little body, is a big heart thats overcome a lot and became a part of our family.
As we got off the plane in Bodrum-southern Turkey- on a hot summer night last August, we saw a little white bundle jumping up and down, welcoming us at the airport exit door. The security officer told us her owners had abandoned her right there days ago and taken off. We left the airport with her and since then she has become the joy of our life.She turned one last week, and we hope to spend many happy long years with our God sent baby jewel!
