“Your time was up at the shelter but I looked into your eyes and knew. This was not how it was going to end.”

Four puppies came up on transport from a shelter in North Carolina early Saturday morning.  Now they have a better chance to find their furever homes.

Welcome to rescue, Vann, Claudia, Duster and Willy!

Thank you Stephano Slack LLC!

We always appreciate our supporters.  This morning two of our pups, Sebastian and Toto, were invited to spend some time at the accounting firm, Stephano Slack in Trolley Square. Everyone seemed to enjoy taking a break to play with & pet these two cute little guys. They definitely were a hit!  Thank you to everyone there for showing us & the pups their hospitality and for your generosity!

New intake!

We took in Toto today.  He is estimated to be a Maltese mix, 3 to 5 years old. Toto is exhibiting distress & pain/ possible injury. Since our vet was closed, we took him to VCA to get checked out.

The vet had to shave him down. He believes one leg has muscle atrophy from the severity of the mats. One leg couldn’t properly extend due to matting which wrapped around leg.

Toto is being sent home with Buprenorphine for pain and Rimadyl as an anti-inflammatory. We imagine he feels much better now.  And what a transformation!

Chihuahua DUMPED in woods FOUND!

Poor Sebastian. His owner died and the relatives let him loose in the woods. He was finally caught. Look at his nails! Despite this, he is very friendly with shelter staff and just wants love.

In partnership with Cecil County Animal Services, we proudly welcome Sebastian, a 6-year-old Chihuahua to rescue. He is currently at the shelter and Heartworm positive. We couldn’t say no. I’m seeking a foster PAWrent near Bear, DE willing to give Sebastian a safehaven. We provide food, crate, toys, treats and vet care. You provide the love. We will treat him for Heartworms. Seeking at least a 2-month commitment to get this angel feeling better.

If you are willing to take him in as a foster, please apply on our website ASAP and we will contact you. Thanks for reading!
