WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP!!!
Rescue dogs have been abandoned, not only unwanted by their owner but also they have not been properly cared for both physically and mentally.
These dogs need immediate veterinary care because their owner was unable or unwilling to protect them from diseases or infections. We spend at least $200.00 to take them to a “rescue friendly” vet to check them out and give them basic protection. Two recent rescues cost us over $1,000.00 each to fix their health problems.
Only 38% of pet owners give their dogs heartworm preventative and usually rescued dogs are heartworm positive when we pull them from the shelters. This is not only expensive to treat ($260.00) but it is a miserable experience to put the dog through before it can start its new life. If the dogs are lucky enough to not have heart worm they will generally have hook, tape, whip or round worm. Apart from these five parasites the dogs also have other untreated ailments such as skin rashes, eye and ear infections. This initial care runs into hundreds of dollars this is why we would appreciate any donation that you can afford to give to help cover these costs.
These dogs are certainly bewildered by the change in their circumstances although they are of course blissfully unaware of how close they have come to being euthanized. Even if they may have at some stage been taught basic house manners they have forgotten how to behave and while going through their medical treatments they also need a period to readjust to a normal happy life. Our foster homes generally spend their own money buying food and toys for the months that they help these rescue dogs until they are finally placed in their new forever home. We would like to try and find people willing to assist our fosters with these additional expenses by asking for virtual fosters to contribute toward these out of pocket expenses they incur while they are helping these dogs.
Please consider making a donation to help these dogs, you can literally help save their lives.

Once called the Brittany Spaniel by the AKC this hunting dog is now the American Brittany or simply the Brittany. Spaniels flush but Brittanys are all-around hunters, they flush, point and retrieve, holding more dual championships (in field trials and showing) than all other sporting breeds combined. This bird dog also makes a great family dog. They are intelligent, very energetic and willing to please. Brittanys have a “wash & wear” low maintenance wavy coat and come in orange and white or liver and white and also roan. There is also the French Brittany that has black pigment on the nose and eye rims with black coloration in the coat. These are still purebred Brittanys and come in black and white, brown and white and tri-color. Just like any dog this agile sporting breed needs regular exercise and basic obedience as part of their daily routine.
