Fosters! We Need You!

We need folks that can lead a few dogs to their future. We have specific dogs that need a leader that can guide them and commit to them despite their minor flaws…after all don’t we all have our flaws? Not every dog in our care can live within a pack of dogs without a guide.  A...

Update On Former GSP Rescue Dog, Willow

We could never imagine seeing Willow the way that she is today.  We had Willow for two years…two years!  So much longer than any of us hoped to ever have such a wonderful GSP.  Willow had a horrible experience in a shelter before she came to us with some aggressive dogs – resulting in dominant...

Recently we learned of a German Shorthaired Pointer that had been dropped off at a shelter in their night drop box.
