Abby, the couch potato

A Foreclosure Dog Named Abby

September 16, 2011

Abby’s people lost their home due to foreclosure and loss of jobs. They had to give up Abby and her 3 cat companions. Abby has been moved around a lot during the last couple months. She is very sweet and loving, but is confused about what is going on.

Postcards from Faith

August 8, 2011

  On Thursday, Faith took a flight from Ontario to Calgary. She overnighted there and the next day, she made the rest of her journey by truck to BC. We received these photos of Faith as she arrived in BC on Friday afternoon. She loves road trips and loved the BC countryside. In what has […]

Faith restored; kudos to Brantford SPCA

July 30, 2011

In a quick post to everyone who has been tracking the story of our little canine heroine, Faith, I want to spotlight the efforts of a group that should be heralded: the management and staff at the Brantford SPCA! I think that we are often guilty of painting everyone with the same brush when they […]

When rescue turns to search for Faith…

July 27, 2011

We received this message from Kalena’s husband this morning and so we turn our energies from rescuing Faith back into the family she saved to finding her a home outside the utterly unfathomable idiocy of Ontario’s BSL. Perhaps by saving this woman’s life, Faith was actually saving her own. Having even the appearance of what […]

Keeping Faith

July 26, 2011

If you were in a life-or-death situation and someone came to your rescue, would you turn them away because of how they looked? Or would you be grateful for the kindness of a stranger to risk their life to save yours? And what if you could help them in return? Maybe your lives were meant […]

Why shelters kill animals in their care

July 16, 2011

This is a partial list that is being circulating around showing some of the reasons an animal may be killed in one of our kill shelters. In my opinion, it is simply a list of excuses for the purpose of either easing someone’s guilt about taking a life or granting them a pardon for their laziness.

Missy

Can you help us return a stolen dog?

July 7, 2011

In May 2010, Missy was stolen from her owner’s car in Tucson when they stopped at a gas station to ask for directions. In the more than a year that has past, her owner, Amber, has not stopped looking for her.

Boomer

Got Room? …for a street dog?

June 29, 2011

About eight weeks ago, Boomer was spotted walking down the street near North Main and I-45 in north Houston following a man who appeared homeless. A very pregnant woman just a couple weeks shy of giving birth stopped and asked the man about the dog. The man said he was taking Boomer to a friend who had a room to see if the friend could keep Boomer. The next day, the man appeared again with Boomer in tow. His friend was unable to keep Boomer and neither was he. He asked Marcia to please find him a good home.
