For the last four years we have submitted a 30 second ad in the ‘Crash the Super bowl’ Doritos ad contest. Tucker has been in every one. We have had fun, but never placed. Doritos has said that this is the last contest. Tucker, the Pommies and I, are asking that you please support us by viewing, rating and sharing our ad.
The prizes are very good and we could help a lot of animals if we were to win! It will take a huge miracle, but I believe in those! We have seen so many miracles. We really enjoyed making the video and we hope that you enjoy watching it.

We have a BIG favor to ask of our adopters. The PetCo Foundation has a new grant opportunity. The non-profits will be nominated by their adopters sending in a story about adopting a dog from PomRescue.com inc and how that dog made your life happier, more joyful and just all around better. We all know that adopting an animal not only changes the animal’s life but also changes the adopter’s life. This year they are looking for those great adoption success stories of how “Love Changes Everything” for the animal and the adopter. After reviewing all adopter nominations, the Petco Foundation will select the best Holiday Wishes stories and finalist organizations will be invited to submit a Holiday Wishes grant application. That is where I have to go to work. We have from now until OCT 31 to get those stories in! Pls visit to get started as soon as possible. The winning organizations and their featured pets will be announced in December. I know we have a lot of great adoption stories out there and very talented writers! The following is the link to use to submit your story. You will have to sign up the first time. Then click on ‘SUBMIT YOUR STORY’.
THANK YOU!!! :0) http://www.petco.com/petco_Page_PC_foundationholiday.aspx
These two little special pups have landed in a soft spot with their new mom, Anne. No more cold winters for them as they have retired to their new home in Florida. On 9/3/2015 Dr Donna Shannon DVM flew up from Florida to our local airport and picked the pups up and flew them back home to Anne. It was difficult letting go, but they have been adopted to the perfect mom that can give them everything they need. We are so excited to see them have their ‘happily ever after’.
We are grateful to FootHills Humane Society for sheltering them and vetting them before we picked them up to heal. We are grateful to Charity Foerester for co-ordinating our PilotsNPaws flight. We are grateful to PilotsNPaws for having the forum to do so. We are grateful to Dr Donna for the day she spent flying them home, for her fuel costs, and the use of her plane. We are so very grateful to Anne, a dog trainer, and a retired nurse, that has opened her heart and home to these special babies. And we are so grateful to our supporters for helping us to help Poms like ThunderBolt and LIghtFoot!
Pup was found as a stray near a dog park. His Good Sam believes he was left there for someone to find him. He has severe arthritis in his spine, neurological issues and problems seeing and our vet could not rule out a brain tumor. However, Pup is enjoying life to the fullest! He is always smiling, making us smile and wagging his cute little tail! He was rail think when we got him, but is eating so well he has really gotten heavy. I carry him in and out several times a day and he is giving my arms great muscles! :0) We love Pup and unless just the right home comes along, he will be sanctuaried here with us.
We are sorry to say that we can no longer take in owner surrendered dogs. Due to some bad experiences and our lack of foster space, we must save our spaces for dogs in immediate danger of being put to death at shelters.
Found as strays in a rural road, ThunderBolt and LightFoot were blessed to be picked up and taken to a very good shelter. One of my friends from FootHills Humane Society contacted us about them. They were pretty sad looking little guys and really needed some TLC! Foothills had them vetted(THANK YOU FOOTHILLS HS!) for us and we picked them up on 8/16/2015. They are doing very well. We are looking for just the right home for them.
Just another Saturday at PomRescue.com. A short clip featuring just a few of the rescued and sanctuaried Poms that are family to us. This is only about half of them. They were scattered all over the yard! I hope you enjoy a few minutes of living, loving and barking!

I received an email from a rescuer that was helping a pair of Good Samaritans that had found a stray Pom. I suggested that she turn him in to a local no-kill shelter to wait see if any owners came forward. She did and after 5 days no one came. (thank you Stacey! She named him Theodore) Then we stepped up to rescue him. A volunteer transporter picked him up at the shelter (thanks Sean!) and met us on the road. By the time I arrived home with Theo, I had an email from a lady asking if she could adopt him. She had met him the day before at the shelter and when he began crying/howling/barking in his kennel, she asked if she could take him home over night. The staff at the shelter there knows her well (and her other dogs), so they let her take him. She said he fit in like he had always been there. The next morning, even though it broke her heart, she took him back to the shelter for us to pick up. She was very sad. By the time I got back home, there was an email from her asking about adopting Theo. I emailed her back and asked if she would fill out our adoption questionnaire and send personal and vet refs. When I called all her refs they all gave her glowing reports. I talked with her at length on the phone and she told me that she had bought him a bed, collar, harness, & a leash. She even had bought him a t shirt because he was chilled, and all the while she knew he was coming to us! (how selfless is that?) She had given him premium food(all her dogs are on great food) given him coconut oil(for his skin), dewormed him and even rubbed salve on his skin! She did pretty much everything I would have done if he had come straight to my house! Then I checked her vet ref and it was one of the best I have ever gotten. We even had a volunteer do the the home visit right away. So by that very same evening, we had everything we needed approved and we set up to meet the next morning. When I wasn’t in the car, on the phone or the computer that day, I gave him 2 medicated baths, a thorough ear flush(they were AWFUL), clipped his nails, and tweaked his ‘lion cut’. He slept as close as he could get to me that night, and didn’t move an inch.Then next morning when I went to put Theo’s harness back on, to get in the car, he gave me the most heartbreaking look, like ‘Oh no. Not again’. It killed me. But when we got to the meet up with Jennifer and she held him in her arms, he had the most RELIEVED, loving look on his face. I call it the ‘It’s OK, I’ll be fine’ look that releases me from them. I always look for that. I think there has to be a bigger reason(than I can understand) why all this worked out the way it did. I am just glad it did. Jennifer had his vetting completed last week and he did wonderful! We already have several pupdate pics and reports.
