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: Ida now Paisley has found her forever home!
“Hi Melody! Sorry it’s taken me so long to get back w/you but we were out of town for the Thanksgiving break and I returned to hundreds of emails (yours was buried amongst them all).
Anyhow, we are having a wonderful time with our baby. She is quickly adjusting to her new environment and learning the ins and out of our daily routine. She eats a lot!!!!! She would eat all day if we let her and has already put on a few pounds—her ribs are no where near as prominent as they were one week ago.
Our family has given her a new name and she is already responding to it. Her name is now Paisley and we think it suits her perfectly. She is very playful but still a little skittish to sudden moves and loud noises. Our other dog Coney is getting used to having another four-legged critter around. He shares all his toys and he is getting better with her always being in his face. They are quickly becoming great friends.
As you can see by a couple of the photos, Paisley has already been to the snow. We went to our cabin for the holiday weekend and she LOVED the snow. She was the perfect little passenger too during the drive to and from our cabin (which is a 2.5-3 hr drive).
We are currently working on potty training her. It has been a challenge but hopefully, by following Coney’s example, she learn.
Thank you for all your help. We love our baby girl and we hope she will love being a part of our family as much as we love having her a part of ours. I am anxious to check out the adopters group on FB! Peace, Elisa”

Brief Bio: Meet Ida! Ida was rescued along with her litter mates when they were found abandoned in a rural area with no shelter or food. Luckily a rescuer was able to spot the puppies and get them all off the streets and to the vet for a full check up. Ida is a very sweet girl who loves to be around her people. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Ida is patiently waiting for a home to call her own!

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.
