    Not a Shelter Dog, But Still a Rescue.

    Daisy is a puppy, probably part wire haired terrier. She was running along with the big dogs at the apartment complex where my Mom lives and I was afraid she'd get run over, so I took her. She's probably 3 months old, had fleas and a scar on her back. My nephew found...

    Me and Sam

    Sam is my 9-yr hybrid coyote whom I rescued from being drowned.  God gave her to me at just the right time!  My mother died in my arms of a massive heart attack suddenly, and God knew I was going to need a companion.  She's my best friend, my life!  I love her...

    Jack

    I had a black Pomeranian named Jack that I had rescued from a horrible situation. He was kicked like a football (in front of my face!). I told them if they had no more respect for him, I would love to have him...he jumped in my lap as if to say "I'm outta here, this is my new...

    Odds Against!

    This true recolection takes its beginning with the death of my nine month old whippet puppy Alex. He had been diagnosed with cerebral tumor as well as haemophelia. Both very painful and dibelitating. For Alex┬┤s sake I had to have him put to sleep. With a shattered heart and...

    Who Still Buys Puppies From Petstores?

    I love dogs. Through my love I rescue animals that I will not let go to just anyone. I resent puppymills and all who support them. I resent brokers also. I resent breeders who breed for the new designer breed because it brings them more money all the while creating a nightmare of...

    Daphne

    Daphne was 5 months old when I got her from the ASPCA, she was a quiet dog, very gentle, very loving.  I choose her because she wasn't as hyper as her sister.  I decided that I wanted a dog because my Siamese was getting old, I knew he wouldn't make it...
