I rescued Sadie from a neighbor who had stopped feeding her and giving her water. She had recently had a litter of puppies, and all of them had died. I'm sure Sadie would have died also, if I had not taken her in. That was seven years ago. Now Sadie is a happy, healthy nine-year-old Rottenweiler (yes, she's rotten!) who sleeps on her very own couch! Sadie is the best dog we could ask for! She is wonderful with our two-year-old daughter, and she loves her doggie sister and her four cat siblings. We are so blessed to have her!
The runt of the litter was left behind on a concrete pad after the feral mom got killed by a car. My husband rescued the tiny kitten, nothing but fur over bones, just prior to a hurricane hitting. Too weak to eat, her was fed with an eye dropper around the clock. Nearly five years later, Lucky is the most loving, sleek, 15 lb. dominant personality of our four cat household.
For those who don't know she is a stray dog who was shot by an air pallet gun in her spine. This weekend we went to the hospital for a CT scan. She was very scared in the hospital. During the CT scan she was under full anesthesia. Everything went well. Now she is doing fine. The doctors said that she has 60% chance to recover after the surgery. Unfortunately the recovery process will be slow and the dog will need a long rehabilitation. The surgery will be as soon as possible.

For the first 2 yrs of Winston's life he was left in the backyard alone. I saw his picture on our local shelter's website. He looked so sad to be there. We had to wait 3 weeks while he was treated for various maladies but he was so worth the wait. He is such a treasure with a comical personality. He wrestles with our other 8yr old rescue and keeps her young. We love him so and can't imagine life without him.
Nezumi was found soaking wet in a log when she was only 3 weeks old. She was crying so loudly that our friends immediately wrapped her up and took her inside to wash her off and get her warm again as it was very cold, rainy, and going below freezing that night. The woman kept thinking, "Lord, don't let this be a rodent", hence the Japanese name! She needed a home so we took her into our family (2 humans and 3 cats). Born feral she needed a lot of special care - I'm a Board Certifed Behavior Analyst so I did a whole behavioral program with her and today, one year later, she keeps us laughing all the time with her antics! She is now a very big, very beautiful, and VERY loud talker!
Julie was raised to be snake food and grew too large. The facilty that was housing her was going to euthanize her. Someone called a person who helped rabbits, who called someone and... Julie was rescued! She travelled on the Bunderground to a foster home and we adopted her as a friend for Dusty B BunnE (also a rescue). After a short time period, they became best buds and stay together most of the day. Julie has me trained so when she sees the kitchen light come on in the morning, she will hop in and sit by the refrigerator until I give her a piece of parsley. We try to grow fresh herbs for her salad, but as you can see - that doesn't always work. She is a sweet, independent girl who appreciates all who helped her get to her forever home.
Dusty B. BunnE was set 'free' in a state park and hopped into a friend's yard. She lives on the border of the park and has had three domestic rabbits come into her yard (as well as deer, bears and other wildlife.) Domestic rabbits cannot survive in the wild! Our friend realized this, and she brought Dusty B to a Super Bowl party - instead of an appetizer or dessert - as she knew we were a bunny family. Dusty B is one of the most mellow rabbits we have met. He follows my husband around and will wait to be brushed before breakfast each morning. He has excellent litter box habits. He welcomes everyone into our home, especially our friends from Orlando Rabbit Care and Adoptions, as he knows they care about rabbits too.
Eight or nine years ago, a kitty appeared in my house. We called her Miyu but we weren't allowed to keep her because my father didn't like cats. However, he was the one who feed her first so we decided to let her stay in our home. We couldn't just abandon her in the streets again. Some months later, she gave birth to 5 beautiful and noisy kitties. But we couldn't keep them all. "Just one" my father said. The kitty in the picture is Milu, one of Miyu's dausghters. She's an angel, but a really naughty one. But despites everything, we love her and we are happy to have her in our lives. She makes our days more enjoyable and brighter. And now my dad loves cats!
My kids talked me into visiting the local shelter and we found our goofball Chick. A beautiful lab rotweiler mix that has turned into my best friend and I would be lost without her. She never misses a chance to remind me to be silly at heart.
My daughter and family drove to Tijuana, Mexico to visit friends who had recently been relocated there by the husbands employer. The husbands employer kept a couple of yard dogs for security purposes. Both of the yard dogs had litters of puppies about 6 weeks old. My daughter is not an animal lover, but couldn't stand the thought of these puppies being added to the stray dog population of Tijuana. After getting her all of the required shots, they brought "Lily" home. Lily is a sweetheart and I babysit her along with my two grandkids while my son-in-law and daughter are at work.
