Pippa came ... with incredibly advanced heartworm disease. But then she conquered ... with an incredible spirit. Now she's brought two more beautiful girls into the pack.
Just a little fun with Nicki. He is actually a perfect gentleman, especially once he gets to know and trusts a person. Now that Rocket has been adopted, who knows what may be in store for our other fear-aggressive boy. Miracles DO happen.
Join us for our latest online auction, Heartworm Help. This auction includes tons of great Jack Russell collectibles (mug, plate, statue, pin, books, etc.); several pieces of beautiful, hand-crafted jewelry; a swag bag for dog lovers; and a Keurig Vue V700 Brewing System with more than 130 pods for coffee, hot cocoa and tea. All proceeds help us cover heartworm treatment costs for our rescues.
Over the past year, Kevin and Elisa Schwutke have been a “dogsend” to the group. They are currently fostering Chad, but prior to Chad, they fulfilled the ultimate foster mission three times: To foster a dog from rescue to adoption. Mr. Wiggles was one of those three. Read his story below.
Mike and Lily Goldstein gave Carson his forever home in 2013--and have given more to rescue than we can ever thank them and their family enough for. With Carson's approval, they became fosters for Cobb a few months ago. And now? We are thrilled to announce Cobb has joined the family permanently!
To promote our push for fosters, we are sharing some stories from our fosters throughout the years. They all have unique and wonderful experiences – some short-term, some long-term and, yes, some permanent. The Brewsters have had a very unique experience in fostering: They fostered one dog (Sam) to the point of adoption, then took in another dog (Breeze) who was really down on his luck. They cared for him and nursed him from rescue, through the trials and triumphs of overcoming (and almost losing) a broken leg, to making the decision to add him to their family.
Want to improve your health and the lives of the rescue dogs? Just go for a walk! Yes, it’s that simple. With the new ResQwalk app for iPhone (Android coming soon), you can log your daily miles walked (or ran) and every step you take will help raise money for the rescue! It doesn’t cost you a penny … and may even help extend your life. ;)
We are always looking for partnerships with great organizations who believe in giving back. It's a win-win situation: You, our supporters, get great stuff that you probably buy anyway; the dogs get a percentage of your shopping spree, your efforts or your time. Our latest partnership is with ResQthreads.
Just a little over a year ago, Hannah spent her days, pacing nonstop in her kennel, unable to look at or trust anyone. You may remember the story of how we finally "caught" her and, slowly but surely, began working with her. She had heartworm (or so we thought at the time; the records were incorrect) and needed to go to foster care for treatment, so Pam and Bonnie took her in, in January and began integrating her into their pack. By February, she was already showing improvement.
