On Saturday, Whole Foods Market Buckhead tried something new and inventive and invited us out for an adoption event. They set us up in a high-profile spot for our dogs to meet and greet visitors as they entered and exited their busy location. Suffice it to say, it turned out fantastic!
If you weren't able to make it to our June fundraiser and bid on the condos in Cabo San Lucas, here's your chance to one-up both of those offers with a 7-night stay (September 20-27, 2014) in a Presidential Suite Condo at Hacienda del Mar.
Fostering a rescue dog is about much more than just taking a dog into your home. It's about teaching a rescue dog how to live in a home. Some dogs' situations are more challenging than others, especially the ones who have spent most of or their entire lives living outdoors--in the backyard or in breeding kennels. And then there are other dogs who just leap into your arms and are ready to adjust to and learn everything. Jessie is the latter.
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.

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.
