A survivor is someone that escapes a horrible fate, and beats the odds. Survivors come in all shapes and forms. Through our lives, we've met many that have beat diseases, that have left abusive relationships, that have survived accidents.... the list goes on. In the many years of volunteering we've met some 4 legged survivors. One that has touched the hearts of many is Naomi. We met Naomi a long time ago and her story was not...

The shelter can be a really scary place for any pup but especially one that is ill. In fact, the odds of getting out can be very slim. I never really fully grasped shelter or rescue life until I became a volunteer years ago. I learned and was inspired so much by volunteers that had years of experience and wisdom. They were my teachers, I their student. The invaluable lessons I still use and hold close to my heart. That being s...

"Rescue" = to save someone or something from a dangerous or difficult situation. That being said, animal rescue has many joys, but just as many heartaches, many wins, but just as many losses. This week was one of tremendous heartache & loss. It wasn't the first and I'm sure it won't be the last, but for many it ripped our hearts out. I've cried a lot this week as I soul searched for the right words to express how I was feeling...

What is commitment? This word can be interpreted differently by people. Through the eyes of a volunteer, committment is dedication to a cause. We have been blessed to meet so many volunteers on our journey. People that share whatever free time they have to make a scary, confusing time a little more tolerable. We walk dogs, we bring treats, we bathe, we transport on little adventures, we sing, we snuggle, we love..... we do wh...

There comes a day like no other day in the life of a rescue pup. We hope and pray that this will be our day, but days pass, months pass, even years and it seems that day may never come. For various reasons we find ourselves homeless, confused, heart broken, and alone. Volunteers and staff become our new family, mending our broken hearts and spirits. Some of us are lucky enough to find foster homes, but many sit in boarding or...

The shelters are overcrowded and many pups have found themselves on the euthanasia list. Many great dogs labeled as scared, shutdown, tense and rescue only wait for their fate. Most rescue groups are at full capacity themselves, but in the last few days, they have rallied together to make room and save lives. They cross posted animals in danger, and pled for fosters. In a world full of so much sadness, it restored ones faith i...
