Happy Tails

Suzy Q

Congratulations to our little Suzy Q on finding her forever family! This little girl was surrendered to our local Putnam County shelter. She is an absolute sweetheart, but has some storm anxiety. God bless the adopters who overlook the little issues that rescues can have! I can't wait to see her blossom with a little love and patience!

Thank you for opening your hearts and home for a rescue!

Rhea, now Maisy

It’s no secret that most people are looking for young shepherds but, we do occasionally get lucky with someone willing to open their hearts and home to an adult. Rhea (now Maisy!), is a beautiful, 4-year-old girl who lucked out in finding the perfect home! You see, she is a little reactive to other dogs (we have seen worse!) and comes with that slight challenge. Kudos to her new owner who brought her to training today where we finalized her adoption! Congratulations Maisy!

Rhea adopted 3-1-24.jpg

CONGRATULATIONS

to the entire family on their official adoption! It's the special stories like this that pull your heart strings! Have a wonderful life boys! We are so happy for you all!

Ian

“Saturday morning behind the scenes feel good story” 3-18-23

Sometimes things happen quickly and quietly, but always with reason. Gorgeous Ian came to us through our wonderful trainer, Melissa. She was contacted by a training facility and asked to help place Ian. This STUNNING boy was found in his crate during rescue operations after hurricane Ian. Sadly, his owners did not survive. He made his way to Melissa and we had a wonderful pre-approved veteran waiting for a companion. Well, as you can see it was a match made in heaven. If you look closely you'll see the wife on Facetime as we couldn't leave her out of the celebration! We are so thankful for all the rescue hearts in this world.

Tora

Tora6 adopted 2-10-23.jpg

Tora came to us by way of our wonderful friend and trainer Melissa. She reached out to ask us for help finding her a home when she was ready. We had a couple of possibilities, but they didn't work out. Sadly, Tora had a crisis last week. She lost some mobility, was dehydrated and lethargic. After a visit to the vet, it turns out that Tora has Addisons. This disease is not curable. Tora will live her life with Melissa, John and their pack. Some things are meant to be. Tora is home! 

Pearl

Suni

Suni10 adopted 1-6-23.jpg

Congratulations to our sweet girl Suni and her new family! She is the luckiest girl ever to have been fostered by her first mom, Katrina, who brought her through heartworm treatment and gave her all the love she needed to flourish. Now, Suni has found her next perfect forever home! After a few twists and turns, her family found her and we could not be happier for this sweet, beautiful girl. Happy life!

🎈✨Foster Mom of the Year✨🎈

KATRINA 🏆

Suni9 adopt of year 1-3-23.jpg

Suni & Katrina

Some stories have sad and happy endings. That's this story. Suni came to us with Lucky and King, now Reggie, back in April 2022. All 3 were heart worm positive. The boys found their homes, but Suni had some detours in her journey. Her first family didn't work out which was not Suni's fault, so back she went to our wonderful foster, Marie. After a while, with little interest on Suni, Katrina found her and fostered her throughout her lengthy heart worm treatment. All was going well, and it was time to set an adoption date. But then, we all got the sad news. Katrina was being unexpectedly called overseas for the remainder of her military enlistment. Sadly, she made a heartbreaking decision to ask us to find her another home for Suni. 😢 We want to thank Katrina from the bottom of our hearts for all she did for this beautiful girl and for serving our country when called. 🧡 Sometimes rescue is an emotional rollercoaster that moves quickly. Though we are sad for Katrina, we are so happy that Suni has finally found her forever family. Above is Katrina and Suni a few minutes before Suni started her new life.

Please join me in thanking Katrina for her service to our country and for all she did for Suni! 🙏

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!

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.

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 adopted 2020 5-29-23.PNG

Stella

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 Vandiver family have such big hearts. While picking up Belle as a foster to adopt they fell in love with Noel, and their house is now fur-ever happier by 8 paws!

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!
