No one said it would be easy, they only said it would be worth it.
Meet Pado! Pado was rescued along with litter mates when they were found dumped in a pile of scrapes in a open field. Pado and litter mates were doing their best to survive however with lack of resources in the area the puppies were slowly starving before rescuers were able to get them all the streets. Thankfully rescuers were able to get them all off the streets and into foster care. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Pado is patiently waiting!
"Ernie (formerly Pado) is settling in very well in his new home in San Francisco!!! When he arrived he was shy and nervous but Ernie has been gaining more confidence every day, and pushing himself to try new things — from going down a formerly scary set of stairs, to greeting a stranger on the street, to hopping up into the car all by himself. When he came to us he knew how to sit and now he knows how to go down, shake hands, and fetch. Still working on rolling over! Ernie loves sticks, playing with other dogs at the dog park (especially Piper, Penny, Astro, Bentley, and Luna), and running around at the beach.Ernie is a very snuggly pup. He has the magical ability to fall asleep in any position (including on his back with arms raised) and especially loves falling asleep on people. We love how gentle and sweet he is - first thing in the morning he hops up in bed and gives us kisses all over. He also has funny endearing quirks, like doing biiiiiig stretches and the cutest audible yawns. Ernie had a lot of fun meeting her brother, Baker (formerly Poki) who lives just a 20 minute walk away! They look very similar but are opposite colors. Ernie’s hoping to meet his other Bay Area siblings soon too!"
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.
