Thank you for helping us pay for Katie's Double Knee Surgery and Physical Therapy
Katie was going to be put to sleep, but a vet tech called us to ask if we could help her. She was over fed and reached almost 90 pounds when she tore her ACL in both knees straight through. We paid for her surgery and for 2 weeks of physical therapy so she could walk again.
Katie is now 75 pounds and on her way to 45 pounds. Our bill was close to $6,000 and we'd really appreciate your help! Donate with PayPal

Jasper and Jake found their forever homes on New Year's Day!
We're enjoyhing the sunny weather and the kids are venturing into the pond - although it is too cold for me!
We rescued Katie in November. She's a darling 3 year old Aussie who needed TPLO surgery in both her knees. She's recovering slowly because her owners allowed her to get to 88 pounds! We paid for her surgery, and for 2 weeks of in house physical therapy including daily hydrotherapy to help her regain muscle tone and get her walking. (Picture above is of Katie doing her hydrotherapy).
I'm thrilled to say she's down to 74 pounds and gets around better DAILY! Her transformation is a joy to experience!

I took a mini red merle girl named Sadie whose owners brought her to the shelter to be put down. She was food aggressive with her 3 and 5 year old kids. She's a joy! Plays fetch, isn't interested in playing with the other dogs, and is RIVETED to my side after only knowing her for 15 minutes.
Also took in a big, lovable red tri boy named Cody whose owner died and because there was no next of kin, was taken to the shelter. Neighbors called me and we arranged to have him transported to the Sanctuary. He'll be neutered next week and posted soon.

Our Reunion was wonderful! Thank you all for coming and showing off your wonderful kids! Thanks again to Sue Wilson for making a video of our time together! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur4PaihlAD4
Please consider fostering one of our dogs.
Fostering makes a huge difference in these dogs' lives because they get lots of one-on-one time with a person...at the Sanctuary, they all share one person... me! Fostering also helps to "lighten my load" here so I have more time to write newsletters, research foundations, take dogs to the vet and, oh yes, rest!
I'm grateful to people who adopt one of our dogs! Each time one of ours is adopted or fostered, a vacancy opens for another to come here.Thank you!
Sometimes we're so crowded at the Sanctuary, that I need to board dogs elsewhere. We spend more than $4,000 annually for boarding. You can help by fostering, or by making a donation with PayPal. Thank you!
