Happy Seventeenth birthday to us!!!

This is now our 17th year of officially running a dog rescue- PomRescue.com I can’t get over how fast time has flown. My hair is now silver, my skin wrinkled and my body tires more easily. I tend to fall more than I used to, and it takes a bit longer for me to heal. The past couple years of political unrest and division and then the Covid 19 Pandemic came with great cost to all people and nonprofits. But we are still here.
Many of our rescued dogs in the past have sanctuaried here with us and become part of our family They just had so many issues(behavior & medical) that they were beyond what we could ask an adopter to handle. This has not changed and has actually become more the rule than the exception. One example is Ollie. A Tibetan Spaniel, he was with us 14 years after finding himself at the Humane Society having suffered a head injury. He had been hit by a car and was never ‘normal’, but we loved him as he was. Ollie passed a couple of months ago in my arms. We miss him terribly.
Even though we started out as a PomRescue, we have taken in more than Pomeranians when the need arose. There is Guardian and Angel, our German Shepherds, who have been our protectors. Angel’s time is getting closer. Her arthritic hips, and back are causing pain and it is harder for her to get up and she falls a lot. Chronic UTI’s, allergies and ear infections are a constant battle, and she HATES to take medicine. With her keen nose she can smell a pill a block away and spit them out faster than I can wrap them in something yummy! She also does not have Guardian’s easy going personality so we are cautious in handling her, esp when she is in pain. But she is comfortable, knows she is loved and is part of a family and that means a lot. ?I see our Mollie’s eyes now clouded with cataracts. Her ears no longer hear. Her brain is foggy with dementia and she coughs so much from her collapsing trachea. But she has stood by me for 14 years and I will stand by her to the end. I will be close to her until her last breath, as she would have done for me when she was able.
I won’t go through every dog we have here and all their issues. It would just take too darn long and time is not something I have a lot of. I don’t know how much longer I can continue to rescue. I can’t make that promise anymore. But I will keep going until I just can’t.? I want to thank all of our adopters! Your happy stories and pictures have been my ‘paycheck’! I want to thank all those that have supported us with donations of things that we needed and for the financial donations! I wish I could hug all the friends we have made all over the country. Most of our friendships have been made because of our love for the neediest of God’s creatures. We have that common bond -we love the ‘least of these’.
In this seventeenth year of rescue, I am just so darn thankful to have been blessed to be able to do what I love. Thank you all for allowing me to do that!
Happy Birthday PomRescue.com family!!!

THANK YOU!!!

We hope you had a safe and wonderful Fourth of July holiday!

July 5th is one of the busiest days for animal shelters – because of the animals fear of fireworks. The fire works do not end on on the 4th either. It can go one several weeks afterwards. Pls keep your pets indoors with you, and just in case the worst happens, be sure you have a tag on your pet that has your phone number and address!

Happy Summer!

We  hope you all are enjoying this wonderful Summer and are well and healthy!

Pupdate on Lucy

Since finding out that our blind Lucy has Diabetes, we have her on insulin. I did a glucose curve and she is now on 3 units of insulin twice a day. Her water intake and output are greatly reduced. She is also gaining weight and is now over 10 lbs. She has become so spunky! She plays, bows, and runs. When I call her in she has the path memorized. When she gets to the steps I say ‘Up!’ and she leaps up each step. It is pretty amazing to watch. I will get video soon! The first sign that I knew something was wrong with her was when she first came home from the shelter and drank tons of water!
I have been asked by the Editor at Happy DIY Home to share this article about ‘Why My dog is Drinking so much water’. I read it and think it is very ’share worthy’. I love learning new things. I hope you will have a chance to read it! https://yourdogadvisor.com/why-is-my-dog-drinking-so-much-water/

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

November News and we hope you had a HAPPY and SAFE THANKSGIVING


We took this adorable little girl in to rescue in Nov.  We call her Lucy. She was left at the local Humane Society. A month later she was adopted but then brought back the next day. I do not think they thought she was blind when they adopted her and she was bumping into things. I picked her up (I believe it was the same day she was returned). She is blind from cataracts. I took her to my vet yesterday to try to piece together the puzzle of why she is losing weight, and has excessive drinking and urinating. My vet sent off urine and blood samples to a lab and we found out that Lucy is Diabetic and will be on insulin twice a day.  She is beyond precious and sweet and very courageous! If you would like to help pay for her vetting and care, your help would be greatly appreciated!
Please enjoy being with your Holidays while staying safe.  We want all our family and yours to live for many years to come!
If you would like to help us during this time, we sure would appreciate your help! Donations can be made online by clicking the donate button below. Or you could mail your donation to:

Christmas Poms & Dogs video preview 2020

I shot the video and pics for the PomRescue.com Christmas video and cards fundraisers on 10/11. Each year I swear I am never doing this again! But then the year rolls around and I repeat the madness. The vid/cards are our big fundraisers of the year, so there ya go! This is a preview to our craziness. I release the video the day after Thanksgiving. But if anyone is ready to donate early- that is fine too! LOL Our mailing address is

October News

I think here are PomRescue.com we should call October, ‘Barktober’! I think we have earned the right to! We have been busy. Our board member Bonnie, facilitated the taking in to rescue, fostered and then placed a little cream, Pom girl. She was adopted last weekend. We LOVE it when a plan comes together! She has been getting happy pupdates all week.

Last Friday I picked up a little black Pom that was transferred over to us by another rescuer, that had taken him in when he was in need. She had him vetted and had intended to keep him, but he just was not a good fit for her pack. We are calling him ‘Cubby’ for the time being. He is being adopted in the next couple of weeks by a good friend that needed him as much as he needed her.  I have enjoyed getting to know this funny, sweet, tiny, precious guy!

Happy Fall Y’all!

It is amazing to me how fast the summer has passed. August and September are gone and now we are ‘pumpkin spice’ everything! It has been so very hot, I won’t really mind because I know cooler temps are on the way. Covid 19 has changed us all this year. I don’t think we will ever be the same. Now we hear that a dog has died from Covid. It has changed the way we rescue. It has changed how our supporters are able to donate. It has changed the way are animals are seen at the vet. We have put off well dog visits and vaccines.  Two days ago, we found out that Facebook was short of help and rather than contact me for the info they needed they decided to refund one of our birthday fundraisers in the spring. It may even be worse than that. We haven’t received payment for two of the birthday fundraisers so it may be a huge loss that will take a long time to recover from. It also casts a shadow of doubt on the legitimacy of our rescue. I want to assure you that we are a legitimate, 501c3. non-profit, charity. We go to great lengths to provide the proper info and fill out all the state and federal requirements each year to keep it that way. Here is the link to our credentials. http://pomrescue.com/blog1/?page_id=704 I want to thank you all for your support, friendship, caring and standing with us these last 16 years. Please stay safe. Take care of yourselves and your family. Things should be better soon! Big furry hugs- Elaine and the pups

We hope you had a safe and Happy Fourth of July!
