Helping death-row, abused, and neglected dogs find forever homes. We do not discriminate by breed, age or special needs. As long as we’re capable of helping out, we will never say no!
UPDATE: It takes a special home to take in a special needs dog. We are very happy to share that Gordon found his special home! This handsome boy is now living the good life getting all the love and attention he deserves! Enjoy your life Gordon!
“Hi Melody, I am smitten! Gordon is so sweet. He is ornery and mischievous, such a boy! But he LOVES to snuggle with his momma. He loves to eat – EVERYTHING – food, treats, sticks, acorns, rocks, and anything else he can find. The new ball has helped! And he’s learned “drop it”! Thank goodness!
I can honestly say, I’ve never seen a dog express such joy. Not just the momentary happiness of a treat, or contentment with some petting and snuggles, but pure joy. And it’s contagious – he has brought us to tears with happiness. We know without a doubt that Gordon belongs with us. He inspires us to see beyond the challenges that life can bring…to overcome…to be thankful…and to just be happy. We love him, Melody! Thanks for all the hard work that you do. You were absolutely right – it’s not always easy, but without a doubt, he is worth it!”

Brief Bio: Meet Gordon! Gordon is a special needs dog who really deserves a home to call his own. Gordon was hit by a car as a stray and never got the help he needed. By the time a rescuer spotted him he was dragging him poor body around. Gordon was brought to the vet where he went under treatment and is now fitted to a wheelchair. We are looking for a home that understands the commitment needed for a special needs dog. Gordon is patiently waiting!

If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
