Mack has had a tough start to life. He came to us from a bad situation where he was kept in a space too confined for proper excercise and as a result he has almost no mucle tone.  He came to us very underweight, and suffering with ear infections, bi-lateral grade-three luxating patellas, and a luxating lens with a juvenile cataract. On intake, Mack seemed to enjoy his freedom and our abundant snuggles and kisses. UPDATE: Mack had a second follow up visit with his eye specialist one month post op and got a fantastic report! He could not be doing better! We are so grateful to the many donors who allowed us to give this special, little guy the gift of great vision!

Charlie came to us from shelter and he was in pretty rough shape. He had drys eys, a heart murmur, parasite flea dermatitis and a bacterial skin infection as well as severe periodontal disease. They knew rescue was a good place for him to get the long-term medical care he needed and he is already showing improvement. UPDATE: Charlie has improved tremendously, and on recheck his heart sounds and eyes (thansk to rx drops) are normal. His skin is much better and hair is growing back. It just goes to show you what a good diet, great medical care, and alot of TLC can do for a guy. He will have a dental soon now that he's feeling better. Stay tuned for more to come on Charlie!

Benson is a happy and playful guy. Sadly, his owners were not in a position to provide the diagnostic testing and the possible procedure needed to correct his suspected heart defect. Their veterinarian reached to rescue as an alternative to euthanasia and we were very happy to have the chance to help this sweet boy. Benson has had an echocardiogram and a doppler and his condition is considered 'moderate' at this time.  We will recheck in October.

This sweet angel came to us in need of extreme grooming and a healthy program to help her shed about 30 pounds.   We gave her a "spa day" and got her cleaned up/groomed and she's feeling much better as a result. Abby has some physical issues as a result from extreme obesity and we will address those when she is at a healthier weight. In the mean time, she is getting lots of love and enjoying her foster family very much. She's is enjoying a healthy diet and does hydrotherapy almost daily to build her strength so she can move well to lose those extra pounds safely. 

Arin is a breeder retiree we have been entrusted to find a perfect home for. She came to us with eye, ear, and skin infections as well as dehydrated but is on the path to healing. .

She lost six teeth but is soon to feel like a miilion bucks! More to come!

Lady & Tibby





This beautiful princess is a typical outgoing and friendly Cavalier. She is a snuggle bug and loves her humans. Cuddle time is her favorite and she seems to always be smiling. She gets along with other dogs as well. She needs someone who is patient and willing to work with her on training. She  has been known to guard "prizes" (aka socks, clothing) from humans (not other dogs), and shows a little bit of separation anxiety. She is attentive and aims to please but needs guidance and reassurance.

  • Age: 2 1/2 (DOB 2/24/14)
  • 21 lbs  (she needs to she a few)
