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!
Meet Cookie Dough! Cookie Dough was born in the Campanado neighborhood of Utila in early 2018. She was born to a very poor family who could not take care of her properly. There were 6 puppies in the litter, and all were given away at one month old, far too young to be taken away from the mother dog. When Cookie Dough was rescued by a foster she was covered in fleas and ticks. The new foster was unable to keep her in his home and she was next fostered by another family. This foster family then gave Cookie Dough to a very irresponsible dog home where they did nothing for her in regard to maintaining her health. This horrible family abused Cookie Dough repeatedly. This new family contacted Jasper’s Utila Shelter claiming Cookie Dough was a neighbor’s dog that was now pregnant, and the neighbors were threatening to harm her. This family pretended to be heroes by ‘rescuing’ Cookie Dough and bringing her to Jasper’s for help, when they were the ones that wanted to harm their own dog.
Cookie Dough has had one of the worst starts to her life and is now one of the most happy and healthiest dogs in the shelter. She loves the staff and volunteers and looks forward to a walk every day. We are so happy to be able to help this shelter who saved her from her horrible owners and give her a second chance at a great life in a loving home. We are looking for a home who understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Cookie Dough 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.
