To be taken to the Flower Chilren

Item . . . Sadie passes heartworm retest, spayed last week and is now posted for adoption Hooray for Sadie! It has been a long haul for Miss Sadie having undergone heartworm and treatment and extensive crate rest, but her rucksack is packed and she awaits the call she’s been looking for all these many weeks. Click here to see her adoption posting, including video link.

Item . . . Roxy, mom to the Flintstone Pups adopted out in August, is now being treated for heartworm. Per usual treatment, a month at least of crate rest for Roxy, but she deserves the rest.

Item . . . Oat almost ready for adoption. We haven’t mentioned Oat previously here, but this brave lad is another rear leg amputation case. Oat has rebounded from his surgery spectacularly  and will be posted for adoption soon. Here’s a sweet preview video of Oat.

Item . . . Eliot & Copper. The six year old brothers are undergoing their second round of heartworm treatment and crate rest. We’re looking at the later part of September for their return to duty.

Item . . . Pollyanna’s fractured leg deemed mended, now in rest & recuperation. Pollyanna was our brave trooper who had her right rear leg amputated in April. This surgery is doing fine, but she’s had a slight fracture of her front leg she’s now working through.  Read full story and watch a moving You Tube video.

One of our fosters, Owen, has made a number of excellent and truly heartwarming videos of some of our rescue dogs. The videos are made ostensibly to assist in dog adoptions, but they also show us how even the permanently injured ones, such as Pollyanna and more recently Oat, carry themselves as pack members and bring joy to their new families. Click the video cam image or text link below to see some of these amazing dogs and amazing videos.

We are in need of assistance in the Orland area. We can use help in transporting dogs for vet visits and the like. Of course foster homes are always welcomed, but if you want to get your paws wet in rescue or have limited time this is a great way to participate. Please email us if you can help.
