February of 2012 I got a call from someone who had found a dog that was in
horrible shape and she needed help saving her life. They took her to a
local vet where she stayed for 3 weeks while she healed. She came in only
weighing 61 lbs. She had mastitis, broken teeth and scars and wounds all
over her body. If you tried to touch her she would cower down in fear.
I made some calls and sent some emails out and a foster was found
for her. Her foster dad, Keith Toney only had her for 2 hours when he
knew he would never be able to let her go. It took time but with Keith's
love he won Nena over and she is now a confident, loving, wonderful dog.
He saw her beauty when she was at her worst. Now a year later she loves
everyone and is a certified therapy dog, bringing joy to those that need it.
I am so happy that I had a hand in rescuing her and helping her see that
there are kind people in this world.
Harley (now renamed Joker) is a 7 month old pit bull that was picked up as a
stray by our local shelter. He had some problems with his back hips and had a
hard time walking.
Sanctuary Animal Refuge in Clewiston, FL agreed to help this boy. He flew to
Florida with the help of Pilots N Paws. The receiving rescue took him to the
vet and the report was that there is nerve damage to his right left hip and leg
due to his being kicked. He also has a small fracture that has not healed
The vet thinks he was used as a bait dog due to healed puncture wounds that
went all the way through one of his hind legs. In spite of all of these
horrible things done to him Harley (now renamed Joker) is one of the sweetest
dogs you could ever hope to meet.
Bette is a 2 year old female border collie who was left behind when her family
moved. She was eventually picked up by animal control which is where we
found her. She is a wonderful dog who will kennel up at the snap of a
finger, is housetrained and knows the commands sit and release.
She was adopted on April 30, 2010 to a wonderful family with 2 kids.
Pumpkin is a 6-7 year old cockapoo who was surrendered to the shelter in
Shreveport, LA. Because of her age she wasn't going to be put up for
adoption. A kind lady in Dawson, TX saw her and instantly fell in love
with her. Her application was approved and she will be transported to her
new furever home next week.
Speckle (now Skylar) is a 2-3 year old female skye terrier mix. She was
deemed unadoptable by the shelter in Shreveport so we rescued her. She
was shaggy and terrified when we got her. After a grooming and some TLC
she became a different dog - tail wagging and friendly. She was pregnant and
gave birth to 7 puppies of which one survived. She was recently adopted
by a loving family and is very happy in her new home.
