Meet Piper!

Piper_dsc_0566_w64Piper is a 2 year old liver and white ticked German Shorthaired Pointer. She is good with other dogs and people, but is very good at entertaining herself as well.

Being a young GSP, Piper needs plenty of exercise to keep her busy!  She walks great on a leash so that will be easy!  Of course continuing her training as well is a must so that she can continue to thrive.  Piper will also need a…

Getting to Know Gracie

Gracie Rdsc_0321w64To say Gracie is a volunteer favorite is an understatement.  She is so affectionate with people and so well mannered with all of the dogs in the field.  She is a great size and demeanor.  She is a love!

She is the perfect “turn key” dog, and could go to almost any home, although she would like a home with other dogs since she has lived with several in the past.  She also yearns for the love and…

If he is pacing and whining, it’s probably because you…

An Important Message From Trigger

trigger_fenceMy name is Trigger and I lived with a really nice man almost all of my life. He loved me, he trained and pet me, and I had some other dogs in our house for company.

Not too long ago, he wasn’t there any more and the rest of the family brought me here to the rescue. I’m not sure why I don’t have a house to go into any more, I have this kennel to spend my time in, but it isn’t big like my house,…

Matrix Here Waiting…

Matrix is waitingMatrix here…”I’m in foster care and I am waiting for a home of my own.  People see me and overlook me because I’m eight, but I have a lot of surprises for them and what they don’t know, is most of them couldn’t keep up with the likes of ME!

I love to play with my foster dog brother.  I follow the lead of my foster dog sister.  I dance when I’m excited…daily.  I hoard some toys now and again.  I…

Daisy is Adopted!

Daisy Maggie Jessica Sheryl Sheryl, Jessica and their dog Maggie really wanted to help a dog in need.  They were open to many types of “needs” but wanted both a good personality fit for their Maggie and themselves.  They came out a few times to meet a dog named Ramp that was a volunteer favorite.  He had medical needs and, while he fit in every other way, they were afraid their schedule may not accommodate his medicine…
