Bear was adopted!

Update August 2007:

Hello Ginny,

Bear (now Turk) is adjusting to life with us. He is a happy and gentle pup. This week sees him starting to relax and showing himself to be a very playful puppy, not to mention an avid retriever! Turk gets along well with all the boys and is particularly gentle with our 19 month old. He is hesitant about walking on the sidewalk with loud traffic, has conquered his fear of our long stretch of stairs to the second floor and is intrigued by motorcycles. Turk is such a wonderful and loving dog; we cannot believe someone would give him up. And we are very fortunate that you take on this important work. You really make a difference in the lives of animals and families in need.

I will continue to send more pictures.




Lexie was adopted!



Honey was adopted!

Update January 2009:

Just wanted to give you a yearly update on Honey Bear!  It's been a little over a year since Honey came into our family.  She is the best dog ever. 

My husband went to Iraq and we were all a little sad so we got each other another German Shepherd.  Honey took her in as one of her own and they love to play at the dog park and go for car rides together! 

Honey is the standard for when we get another rescue dog!  We wanted to thank you so much for letting her into our family and lives!

Liz, Darin, Honey, and Cloie 

Update July 2007:


I just wanted to thank you so much for letting me take Honey into my home. She was giving me kisses the whole way home. All she wants to do it play and go for car rides. Her first official day home we got up early at 8am and we took her to the pet store and got her a couple more toys. Then she went swimming and played in the lake at the dog park with the other dogs. She hasn't snapped at the leash once. Everyone loves her. She has gotten a pretty pink leash and collar and is the apple in my eyes. I'll be sure to send some pictures of her playing in the park.




It's been a week. Honey loves car rides and never leaves my side. We got over our fear of steps. We go to the dog park everyday and she is swimming even farther out now. here are some new pictures of her.

Sweetie Pie was adopted!



Shiloh was adopted!

Update: August 2007:

We love Shiloh!  She's settled right into our lives! Her smile is hysterical!  She enjoys living near a pond and smelling all different things outside. Shiloh has overtaken the couch so many nights, I just naturally sit on the floor now!  Thank you for all your organization does!
Sincerely,  Kathy and Erin Denny



Abby was adopted!

Update July 2007:

Just wanted to drop you guys an update on Abby and ask a question as well.
So far shes doing great, she is perfect in the house and outside. The only issue I have to work on is that sometimes she will run off when not on the leash in a neighborhood setting...she seems fine in the woods and on the farm. She has her first vet appointment wednesday at New London Veterinary Center. My question is, did she eat alot when you guys had her? She seems to be maintaining weight well and is healthy, but she only eats about half of what I'd expect her to eat. I feed her Premium Edge adult dog. Thanks in advance for any info you guys have on that.

p.s. I call her Dusty now, but I think she responds to both.
