Bert’s Travels (A rescue story)

Bert was one of the three dogs we rescued (all on the same day!) recently.  What a teddy bear!  Apparently he is at Ms Jamie’s house, cuddling on the couch, with his head on her lap, as if he never knew that he could have ended up on the street forever.  So wonderful when these kids adjust almost instantly.  Big Bert is going to need heartworm treatment as well.  We are using an alternativ…

Wolfgang’s Rescue

All of us were SO happy to be able to pull Wolfgang from the streets. He’s been out here awhile and is just always a doll, and kind of a little guy! All it took was one of our foster homes to open, and Wolfie’s new foster & the Gateway Girls went into action. I personally had on my boots, longsleeves, and 2 layers of sunblock because I NEVER know how long these types of things will take, or what “terrain” we will end up maneuvering.

Being a Responsible Pet Owner: The Cold Hard Facts

When most people make the decision to get a pet – it can be more of an impulse than a well-thought-out decision. People don’t always think ahead into the future and realize that owning a pet is a long-term commitment.  When a rescue doesn’t do a good job of  pre-adoption counseling, this can lead to pets being returned.  If dogs are returned, then that’s one less dog on the street we are ab…
