12/19/20 It is with a heavy heart I inform you one of our alumni has crossed over the rainbow bridge. Naples was a unique little guy. He was only 6 lbs but he had the courage of a lion. He came to us in rough shape. His teeth were so rotten, he struggled to eat … Read more


12/10/20 – An alumni crossed over the rainbow bridge today. A little over 3 years ago, I got a call that a beagle was tied to a pole in a school yard. He was abandoned. His nails were so long and he was very overweight. He had a bit of a grumpy streak. As fate … Read more


12/10/20 – Cookie came to us when she was about 4 or 5 years of age. She was a petite beagle and found a home rather quickly. She met an untimely death at around 11 years of age. We are so sad to hear this outcome for this beautiful girl. Rest in peace Cookie, we … Read more

11/17/20 – It is hard to believe this is the only picture I have. This little guy was in need of assistance 6 years ago and on Thanksgiving Day, I pulled him out of the shelter and placed him into a home. As it turns out, he never left that home. His foster family adopted … Read more

10/21/20 – We just heard that one of our alumni has crossed over the rainbow bridge. Waffles has been in her forever home for four and a half years and it warms our heart to know how loved she was. We are grateful for that. I only wish she could have gone on longer. She … Read more

Once we could cut her down and settle her in a foster home, she started to open up and blossom. We all realized fairly quickly that her forever home was … Read more
