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…

Honey, Please don’t kill me, but there is a feral kitten lose in the basement.

Which would not be such a big deal if my husband were not deathly allergic to cats. I rode with PJ today, and we have had this ongoing thing with this kitten. I tried to catch her once and failed, but today, PJ snuck up on her and grabbed her while she was eating. It surprised all of us. It’s like, oh no! what are we going to do now? She is so adorable, and I am really hoping she will fall for…

It’s Bomber’s Turn.

PJ called me today, saying that she wished we could take Bomber off of the streets, just for a couple of days, while the cold passes. My husband is out of town, and I thought, well, I could have him for a couple of days. My second thought was, there is no way I will be able to put Bomber back on the streets once he gets to live in the lap of luxury. So, I set out on a mission to find Bomber a…
