This adoption is extra special to us. Congratulations to our favorite pirate, Jack Sparrow! He is so special to me and to our amazing fosters/trainers that had the honor of working with him to rebuild his confidence after his failed placement. Special thanks to Marie and Samantha for getting him ready for a new forever home. Super thanks to Jack's new family for seeing what a great dog he is and providing him the home he is so worthy of! I think Jack and his k9 brother Clark will be best friends! Have a happy life Jack!

Kyza

Our darling little Kyza has found herself a forever family! I am so happy for her! She is such a sweet girl,but as with many rescue dogs, she has some separation anxiety and that takes a special person to deal with sometimes. I am so grateful for the hearts of people who take on the challenge of the dogs with separation anxiety. They are so worth it! Happy life of cuddling Kyza!

Sky

We were hoping to have all of our rescues in permanent homes before Christmas… WE DID IT! Congratulations to our BEAUTIFUL Sky and her new family! We cannot wait to see the amazing dog that she will grow up to be!

Clyde

A huge congratulations to Clyde (now Phoenix!) and his beautiful mom! This was one of the most amazing transformations I have seen! Phoenix lived his entire 8 years in a small back yard with very little attention. In spite of a life void of human touch, he is the sweetest, happiest boy ever! What an absolute joy he is and what a great match they are! Sometimes good things come in senior packaging! Happy life you two!

Penelope (Penny)

Sky2_adopt 11-2-21.jpg

We are so happy to announce that sweet Penny is staying in her foster to adopt home! One of our wonderful fosters fell in love with her. Things happen quickly sometimes, especially with the pups!

Swiper 3 adopted 10-15-21.jpg

Swiper's foster to adopt home could not resist adopting sweet little Swiper! She came into the rescue unnamed and found in a retention pond with a non weight bearing injury in her back leg. The only reason we can help her is that we had a foster step up at the right time. Great news, the vet says that her leg does not require surgery!

Toby

Congratulations to our Toby and his new forever family! Toby joins two big sisters and his new best friend, playmate and almost twin, Bryx. Bryx is excited to welcome Toby into his pack and the family. Wishing you all many happy years!!

Spirit adopted 6-7-21.jpg

Spirit

More awesome adoption news! Remember Spirit who had been roaming around in St. Johns county?

She has started her new journey with her forever family. Somehow dogs have a way of knowing and Spirit knew! Spirit needed a little support and vetting from our rescue and now has found her forever home with the wonderful family who found her. Have a happy life, Spirit, now known as Bella! 

Drago

Exciting news! Drago, Stella's sire who was rescued with her, is finally officially adopted! He is such a good boy too. In January he was at the shelter for over 100 days, but today, he has his own family who love him so much. Congrats to all of you and have a wonderful life Drago. You deserve it!

Buddy

Buddy has found his forever family! We had a busy weekend May 15th! Buddy instantly became friends with the youngest family member and slept in his room and snored all night. It was an instant match for this family! Have a great life Bud!

Congrats to our little guy Bravo, now Rayden, and his new family! Rayden and his brother Titan were instant best friends too! Happy life to this super cool family!

Bravo

Stella

Stella's new family

Stella was so shut down we had to carry her to the car from the shelter. She wouldn't walk, out of fear. Stella and her father, Drago, were overdue to be euthanized by the time we knew about them. As a rescue, its scary to pull dogs with unknown history. You never know if there will be health or training issues that present themselves. These two stand as the most expensive dogs we have taken in. Sometimes they just need a chance with the right people.

Molly

Molly stole the hearts of her foster parents so quickly, there was no time to post her information for adoption. Congratulations Molly and Eddins family.

Belle & Noel

The Gallatin family opened their home and hearts to Holly, from the "Fab 5" litter. Not only did she get a fur-ever home, but she also gained a human brother and a fur sister!

Athena

Our first rescue, Athena, mother of the "Fab 5" puppies, has finally found her forever! On March 16th Athena was adopted by Linda, the cousin of our rescue's founder. She will live her happily furever north of the Mason-Dixon Line, where her first day in her new home she experienced snow. Congratulations to you both! May you bond quickly, strongly and forever!

Our hearts are broken that our beautiful Athena passed away January 2022

Shadow

Beautiful 1 year old Shadow is with her 'foster to adopt' family and now considered adopted. Congratulations to Shadow and her new family! Our foster families always have first choice on the dogs in their care. Shadow was fast to find her adoptive home! 

Lincoln

Congratulations to our gorgeous Lincoln and his new best friend! What a dynamic duo don't you think? Lincoln will be enjoying the ocean life in his new forever home. I'm so happy that he will get to go to lots of places and experience all sorts of cool things. Happy forever Lincoln!

Gretta2 courtesy adopt 7=4=21.jpg

Gretta

Congratulations to Gretta on finding her forever home! She will be 2 years old in September, is spayed, vetted, and on heartworm and flea prevention. She is crate trained, house trained, and people friendly. She is selective with her animal friends so she will need to be an only pet. Recommend no small children. We wish Gretta much happiness in her new home!

Maggie

Huge congratulations to our sweet Maggie on finding her new family! Maggie is our girl that was hit by a car. She was adopted and returned 6 months later, by no fault of her own. She is a very shy and aloof girl and doesn't usually show well when first meeting people. I am forever thankful to all of our adopters, but especially the ones who adopt even when the dogs weren't perfect. I am so happy for Maggie and her new family. Wishing them a lifetime full of love and loyalty!
