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. 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!

What in the world?

I honestly do not know what to say about what is going on in the world today. A month ago, if some one had told me we would be staying at home in the middle of a pandemic, I would not have believed it. But here we are. It really hit me today when I went to our Vet’s office, and had to call them to bring out Trouble’s insulin to the car because we were not allowed inside. That is what all the vet’s are doing now to try to curtail the spread of the virus. It was surreal.
Many people will be impacted in many ways. Even if they do not get sick, the shutdowns may affect their livelihoods.
As a non-profit, depending on donations from kind people, we do not know how this will affect Dogs will continue to need to be rescued. The ones sanctuaried here will still need their medicines/food/care.
We will just do the best we can to get through this. One day at a time. Please take care of you and yours first, and if you have any left that you would like to donate, we will make it go as far as we can!
My thoughts and prayers are with you all and your families. We will get through this with God and by standing together.
Big hugs- Elaine

We have wonderful news!

We all need to hear some happy news … How about this? Prancer is being adopted! My good friend June, who has been an adopter for many years, has decided to make him part of their family. I LOVE this boy so much!  He is deaf, is not tiny, nor female so placing him with someone I know will love and care for him the rest of his life has me thrilled! June is not far away, so I know I will see him again. That makes this easier as well. He has follow up bloodwork for his thyroid meds, and I have him scheduled for a dental on 4/8. So we are aiming at adoption in mid April. I have told June that they can foster him for a while to see if he is a fit, but we both know her, and she won’t be sending him back 
Congratulations June Dreskin and Neal and Prancer! 

Pupdate on our latest rescue, ‘Prancer’

Our latest pupdate on our latest rescue, ‘Prancer’. This is how he looks at me when I call him in. Then he goes down in a play bow, does a circle and runs the opposite way! I thought he was totally deaf the way he ignored my calls. But I have since seen him respond to my claps. Sometimes I can catch his eye by waving a white paper plate. I am still trying to figure him out! I do know he loves kids and is very beta. He has not growled or picked a fight with anyone, and respects the big dogs to the point that I have to make them come in first before he will even think about coming on the deck. My vet called with his blood results and he is HYPOthyroid and will require meds twice a day. We just have to get the dosage figured out now. Then he needs a dental. He is a wonderful, 14 lb, senior, snuggley boy. I am guessing at least 14 years old.

We hope you had a Merry Christmas and will have a Blessed New Year!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New year!

Our Christmas letter

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to our family, friends and supporters! Thank you so much for your donations, support and prayers over the years! It is amazing how fast they go by now. This year started out pretty hard, as I lost my Dad in Jan, only 4 months after my Mom passed. They are in Heaven, together again, and I am sure that they welcome each of the dogs as they cross the bridge. We lost little SamIam, in early summer to respiratory failure and tiny Bailey and Cinnamon to cancer in Nov. Cinnamon had an aggressive cancer removed two years ago, but had had a good life up until the last few months. Bailey was rescued(with Georgie) last Christmas, and although she had improved and gained a little bit of weight, she never thrived and was never strong enough to be spayed. So when the tumor on her stomach began to grow, we knew there was no hope of her ever getting better. I believe she never got over missing her ‘dad’ (he passed right before the family abandoned them) because even though she was mostly blind, she constantly walked as if she was trying to find someone. Georgie, her ‘sister’, and a bigger Kelpie mix, had a rough start. She was an escape artist, was aggressive to some of the Poms and had severe separation anxiety. On top of the behavior issues, she also had heart worms and a mammary tumor. I was determined to do what I could for her, and believe it or not, we worked through all the issues. She is now a good girl and is protective of the little dogs. We are still going through the process of the ‘slow kill’ method to rid her of heart worms, and we had the mammary mass removed. It is so nice to see Georgie ‘glowing’ and happy.
With so much sorrow and hurt happening around the first of the year, I became severely depressed. Then I heard from my friend, Bunny Bishop(who does such great rescue work!) about a young Pomeranian male that had been surrendered when his owner, who was severely disabled, could not keep him any more. He was having to spend a lot of time in a crate. The lady that had him before Bunny, only had him a couple of hours before she was knocking on Bunny’s door that same evening, wanting Bunny to take him! At first I was going to help Bunny by taking pics and vids and posting them for her. I knew he would get adopted quickly as he was so handsome and young. So after visiting for a while we loaded the young fella back up in her car. I went inside and Ronnie, said ‘I wish we could keep him!’ He never asks for anything and puts up with so much, plus I was thinking the same thing! I ran back out to the driveway and caught Bunny before she left, and asked her if she would consider allowing us to adopt him. She was happy, but asked that if we did not want to keep him, that he would go back to her. That was the easiest promise I have ever made! Bunny took him and had him vetted/neutered and then he came HOME. I think you could say that Wolf sort of EXPLODED in to our lives! We had not had a young dog in a long time and had forgotten a lot. He jumps like a cat, thinks he is a Wolf, and is as agile as a Ninja! I called him ‘Wolf the Wolferanian’. I got busy and crated my shoes, put crates around electrical cords, ect, and shelved anything that might be harmful if he got in to it. Then he figured out how to jump on the chairs and bar stools to get on the kitchen table and island. There was no containing him in a puppy pen either! Oh no… The first day I tried that, he climbed out before I had even turned my back and was greeting me from the back of the couch through the window pass through in the kitchen!! Wolf was just ‘too much’! Too much energy. Too much cunning. Too wiley. Too smart. And JUST RIGHT for where I was in my life. I needed to get outside my sorrow to out think, out wit and out play our Wolf, just so he would be a ‘Survivor’. (I used to love that show) Wolf turned a year old in Nov. During the last several months he became a swimmer, (jumps in every chance he gets) loves to ride in the car, loves to gather the chicken eggs, loves the (6) Grands, and EVERYONE he meets. Too adorable and funny to keep all to myself, I began making videos of all the crazy and funny things he does, and sharing them on his own Facebook page, ‘Wolf the Wolferanian’ and on my YouTube channel. I can’t even tell you how many times a day this boy makes me laugh out loud! So when I look back, although it has been a hard year, it has also been a year of many blessings and good times as well. I pray you all have a blessed 2020, full of smiles, good times and laughter. Thank you for being you. For with out you, the world would be a very different place.
Big hugs Elaine and the dogs of
