8 year old Dove lived in an emergency clinic where she was a blood donor for 6 years and was never allowed to leave the facility. She was well loved there and they tell me she saved a lot of lives. (We go back and visit often.) I rescued Dove through All About Hounds in Smyrna, TN. (AAH) Memorial Day weekend. What lovely, lovely people they are! When they brought Dove to me, (a 2 hour trip) she walked right in and made herself at home and followed me everywhere. We have been glued to the hip ever since! Dove is an elegant lady and we are a match made in heaven. Oh, how she loves long walks along the shore on the lake where we live! Adopt a senor! They are awesome!
This old girl wandered onto our back porch yesterday. We don't know where she came from, or who she belonged to. She is obviously socialized; very friendly and passive. But she also has been shot. The wound is almost healed. I guess one more won't hurt; we have 3 long-haired Dachshunds, also rescues, that also had mysterious lives before they came to us. All of our animals have a good life; as Ghandi said, "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." We try to do our part.
I met this little boy in May of 2007. I had no idea what had took place his first year of life. He was scared and was biting anyone that got close. The rescue that I work for was thinking about turning him over to a chihuahua rescue instead of keeping him. I told them I would take him home and work with him. The first time I took him to an adoptathon he got loose and ran away. A little boy helped me catch him and I decided then and there that he wouldn't have to go throught that again, so I adopted him. I was afraid that since he nipped at everyone they wouldn't understand and have him put down. He just turned 4 yrs old in May and is a happy boy. He loves to kiss and follows me everywhere I go. He loves to wrestle and run with my three other rescues and is a constant source of entertainment. Rescue a pet, you will never regret it.
Sammy was living outside a local store and made it inside the backroom and would not leave. Some who saw him said he was a sick cat and he was mean. But that is the farthest from the truth. He was caught on a Sunday and taken to Sierra's Haven a local No Kill Shelter. I told them I wanted to adopt him if he didn't have any diseases (didn't want to take any to my other cats). They tested him, gave him his shots and neutered him. I adopted him on that Friday and he is the biggest motor boat and love bug around. Loves to purr, knead and sleep on my chest. People can't believe that is the same cat. Adopt a member of the family from your local shelter and the love you will receive will be unmeasureable.
We saw Mavericks picture in the shelter we went to then we asked the guy who works their if we can see him. Once we found saw him it was like we connected my mom held him in her arms and right away he laid his head on my moms shoulder. Then i held him and he gave me a big kiss and laid on my shoulder then me and my mom knew that he was the one to pick. When we got him he was 3 months old. He was shaved by his bottom because he had bad dry skin. We don't know his history all we know is he was transferred from the shelter in West Islip. Now its been 2 happy years with him and we love him as much as we did when we got him. He loves being brushed, his bacon strips, playing with his toys, belly rubs, running and laying next to me when I am sleeping.

My husband, a police officer, was working nighshift on July 4th weekend 2008. A tiny black kitten got tossled under an SUV. My husband stopped to make sure she was okay. She was so tiny he couldn't leave her there. She was ferrel and scared. He called me at 1:30 am to meet him outside to pick up the kitten. I got her inside and she was so skinny. She slept in a box on the bed that night because I was afraid she might get lost in the covers. The vet said she weighed less than a pound. She was covered in fleas and ear mites. It took her a little while to learn how to eat and gain some weight. Now she is 2 years old and loves to play! She is learning how to play with our six other rescued cats and doing great!
Right before Halloween, this little girl made her home in our backyard and decided she wasn't going to leave. When we realized she had adopted us, we took her to the vet for shots and brought her inside. Just 6 short months later, she became very sick, her liver and kidney's had shut down. We don't know what the first 8 years of her life were like but we know that she had a loving home with us for the last few months. She was a special girl and we loved and miss her very much.
Zsa Zsa was a resident at The Franklin County Humane Shelter in Tenn.This is a "no kill" shelter and it was not likely that Zsa Zsa, a special needs kitten would be adopted. As a volunteer for the shelter, I fostered her until she died.
In the picture I drew of her, it's easy to see how much she liked to snuggle.
I miss her !
In February 2010 I adopted Lola Falana from the Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL) in Washington, D.C. The WARL actually rescued Lola from a puppy mill in Arkansas in November 2009.
It has been six months and Lola is adjusting quite well to a loving, caring and normal lifestyle. She has experienced some health issues but with regular medical care, she will be a picture of health soon. It takes Lola a while to warm up to strangers. To me, she’s just an angel and I don’t know how I managed without having her in my life sooner.
The picture shown is Lola trying to get in the car to go for a ride!
