Getting to Know Snuffy Cletus Hightower

An Up Close View of Snuffy:As you can see Snuffy is looking much better. We are still looking for a foster home for him. He is currently admitted at the vet until he is feeling better and should be ready to come home by the end of this week. Please pass this along so we can find a loving foster home for this deserving guy. He is so sweet.If you are unable to foster, but would like to contribut…

We Heart Kitties too!

Although we predominately rescue dogs, we still love those kitties. PJ carries cat food with her too when she goes to the streets. If there is anyone out there who is unable to foster dogs, but would like to foster a cat, notify us and when we find a sweet baby like this one who we could catch, we would pick her up for you. In order to pull we need foster homes lined up. Rarely do we see the sam…

Snuffy Cletus Hightower is rescued!

We have been tracking Snuffy for almost a month now. The problem is that he would hide under this house every time we tried to get near him. PJ spoke to the person who lives there and he gave us permission to stake out his house and set up a trap for the pup. It was a little scary to say the least. We waited for about 3.5 hours for Snuffy to show up. Meanwhile, a lot of sketchy cars were coming…

Let’s Save Nancy!

Meet Nancy, little lady blue eye. Nancy has been on the streets her entire life. She is approx. 35 lb Shepherd/Husky mix (we think). She is probably a little over a year old. She is so sweet. She wants so badly to come in the car with us when we go to feed the dogs. She chases PJ’s car every day. You can tell she knows that there is a better life out there for her. It is so sad to see her in t…

Artsy, fun Volunteer Opps.

This is Dixie, that puppy with the grumpy face that I want. She does not look so grumpy anymore. I think someone cheered her up. Or maybe she just needed to go potty really bad in that last photo.There are a lot of fun things coming up with the rescue. We are planning an Art Auction at Schlafly Bottleworks for February 28, 2010. I will be posting the call for art at the beginning of June. I am…

Some of the Adorable Faces around here

I just love this little lady’s face. Her name is Mabeline. Maybe she was born with it 🙂 I did not name her. She is still quite shy and is such lover. I think she is going to be a great pup for someone. She was one of our Parvo survivors. Hopefully we won’t have anymore parvo pups. We have gone to great lengths to prevent that from happening again.Little Bruce is one of Eartha’s pups. He is a…

Agnes

Agnes has been on the streets for quite a few years now. PJ was the only person that she would let pet her. There was this guy who she followed around every day, but she would not let him pet her. I would like to draw you a picture of Agnes and this fellow: We would see this man who dressed everyday in a one piece, red type button up pajama suit,  always with a bottle of whiskey. If we saw this…

Loosen The Leash

Richard Red, is just one of hopefully many of Gateway’s dogs who have been accepted into the Loosen the Leash Program! Loosen the Leash is a training program for kids “on the edge”. The dogs go through 3 months of training with kids who are wards of the state.

The program is a win/win situation for the child and dog. The former street dog has an opportunity to be highly trained so that their…

Far From Homeless

A few of David Carlyon’s snapshots from the picture fundraiser this weekend. Don’t we wish they could all be in loving families that have their portraits taken?Can you count how many?

“I scared all of those big Sheepdogs away. I’m big.”

“Look at that wanna-be Giant Schnauzer below us. Who does he think he is?”

This is my goofus Floyd the Doyd. He thinks he’s a pure bred.

This is my…
