Merry Christmas!

We have a new rescue coming in on 12/20/21 when his stray hold is over. That is if no one comes for him. He is older, grumpy and appears to be blind. I have been asked ‘What do the dogs need?’ It made me get serious about what we really do need, so I thought I would share. We have an Amazon wish list too.

Thank you!!

I have a ton of stuff in the basement for the rescues. I never throw anything away and always wash things and put them up clean. What we can use is:
medium collars, Med harnesses, 5-6′ leashes(I always give them away) sm-med dog clothes. Larger tough toys. (Chief will get a hold of them and swallow the small ones at least for another 2 years!) Dental care products(like the water additive, dog tooth paste and tooth brushes) Dry powder washing soap, & bleach. (the dry keeps our front loader washer from stinking! the liquid has sugar and feeds mold) Thicker, easy to wash baby blankets that I can fold up and they can make beds with. Dog treats and canned dog food. Baby wipes and dry shampoo! LOL I just remembered these when I had to clean up Lucy’s messy hiney! Rider has to have his behind wiped every time they come back in. That, his weight, horrible farts(LOL) and his constant barking is why he is still with us. I would hate to see what would happen to him, if he got with the wrong people! I believe that is why he got in such bad shape and ended up at the shelter to start with. They just didn’t want to deal with him any more and set him outside.


I didn’t order the Christmas cards this year. I am sorry! Last year a lot of them were ‘lost’ and some came back in Jan & Feb! I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas, happy Holidays and a happy and healthy 2022! ? Elaine and the dogs of

‘Giving Tuesday’

Last Tuesday was ‘Giving Tuesday’ and  soooo important to organizations such as inc Shopping through our iGive link costs you nothing but helps us out!
Also shopping through the Amazon Smile link generates a donation to us as well.
We also have a wish list on Amazon
All donations go directly to providing for the animals in our care, and to the running of the rescue. As most of you know, we LOVE to rescue the ones in need. Over the last 18-19 years we haven’t turned our back on many with health & behavior issues, and senior dogs. In the past we have taken in the ones that others won’t. These last couple of years, due to the Covid virus, non-profits have been seriously affected. is one of them. We have lost several of our Sanctuaried dogs, but we still have a house full that have special issues that still need taking care of. These include 2 seniors that have Diabetes and have to have insulin injections twice a day, and 4 with serious behavior issues that make them sanctuaried dogs. We are hoping 2022 will be a better year, especially for those dogs needing help.
We can’t do this without your support. We receive NO federal, state, city, or county funding. We run only on the generosity of our supporters.
So if you’re considering making a donation this Tuesday, will  you support us?

Please note that we can no longer take in owner surrenders.
We are sorry to say that we do not 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.

November- the month of being THANKFUL

I have noticed in the recent years that I tend to enjoy Halloween, and then get so excited that I rush head long in to preparations for Christmas- even though my favorite Holiday of the year is Thanksgiving. The reason is, we don’t buy each other gifts, but we gather together to fellowship and be THANKFUL. After TWO YEARS of a Covid pandemic, I can think of so many reasons that I have to be so thankful! Every member of our family (that I can think of!) has had Covid, except Ronnie, myself, our oldest granddaughter, my mother-in-law and my sister in law. And they have all survived! Thank God! Our daughter and all four of her children had it at the same time, and they live all the way on the Gulf of FL. Then before that, our son had it really bad, but his wife and son had it but were not as sick and it didn’t take them too long to get over it.
I hope you all have survived, but more than that, have thrived this past year. It has certainly been a learning experience.

In the last 12 months, we have lost FIVE of our sanctuaried rescue dogs. We lost Georgie (the KelpieX that came in with Bailey the Pom). Last Fall, right after I did the Christmas video, she went in to urgent respiratory distress and was diagnosed with lung cancer.

Then last Summer our 14 year old, rescued Tibetan Spaniel, Ollie, passed here at home, of age related heart failure.

Just a few months after that, Angel, one of our guardian German Shepherds, body gave up on her out on her, she had horrendous Arthritis.

In October, Guardian, our biggest guardian, coughed a bit and seemed off. I took him to our vet and we did extensive blood work, xrays, and checked him all over. It was found that he had a collapsing trachea and heart disease. I thought he was doing OK, but just a few days later, we were in the kitchen and he walked over towards the refrigerator, and fell over and didn’t take another breath. After speaking to the vet, she seemed to think it was a heart attack.

Then last week, less than a month after Guardian’s passing, our (rescued for 10 years) Pom, Mollie stopped eating, would just fall over, and could hardly breathe. She got her wings as well. Mollie had gone deaf, was mostly blind, has severe Dementia, and had a collapsing trachea for the last five years.

There is so much to each of these precious soul’s story. I loved each one and they were our family. So many people don’t lose five dogs in a life time, and we lost FIVE in 12 months. This is a first. I know we take in the ’special’ dogs, which usually don’t have many years left, but it is so hard to lose even one. Some days I feel like I am one of the ‘Walking Wounded’. I am functioning. But I honestly am not sure how. If it were not for the other seven members of our pack, I don’t know if I could keep on going. Our ‘Wild Wolf Wolferanian’ is a bright spot of my day, distracting me and making me stay on my toes.
I want you to know that I really appreciate all of our friends and supporters. I am so THANKFUL for YOU!
Happy Thanksgiving!!

October is here

‘Wolf Wolferanian’ is teaching his new friend how to play. We lost our big German Shepherd, ‘Guardian’ unexpectedly a few weeks ago. We have all been so depressed and sad. Especially Wolf. Now he has a new friend to train up to be his new buddy. We hope you enjoy watching ‘Chief’ grow.

Happy Seventeenth birthday to us!!!

This is now our 17th year of officially running a dog rescue- 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 family!!!

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!
