Meet Some of Our Adoptable Dogs

Frodo

Oh Frodo, we promise your forever home is coming. This big guy with the beautiful smile wears his heart on his sleeve and wants nothing more than to be part of a family and have [...]

Max

He's handsome, he's smart, he's athletic. But Max was not the prom king, the valedictorian or the varsity superstar (though he could be any of them). Max is the class clown. He would rather be [...]

You have to be fluid in rescue and willing to change your plans when its in the best interest of a dog. Yesterday we posted about Tefiti, Abby and Missy who were all scheduled to head north today. Our volunteer and transporter Joanne Trudeau picked up all 3 dogs and was housing them overnight in preparation for this morning's departure. When she got home, she discovered that Abby was very shut down and shy (she's the little tan one looking like she wants to disappear into that sofa cushion). Joanne quickly made the determination that Abby needs a little more socialization to help her be comfortable with people and strange places before sending her on her way. Moving too quickly for shy dogs usually sets them up to fail. So Joanne and her family are going to foster Abby and help her build her confidence and comfort. What an amazing act of love from this family and absolutely the right choice for Abby.

And . . . since Abby was heading to our rescue colleagues in Portland Family Dogs New Life Shelter, her staying behind opened up a spot for another shelter dog. So not only does Abby get a great foster home, but Maxwell - who woke up in a shelter kennel this morning - was pleasantly surprised to hop in the truck and leave his kennel days behind.

A huge thank you to Joanne Trudeau and her family, Family Dogs New Life and our amazing volunteer team. Another life saved this morning and Abby will get the time and attention she needs to be successfully adopted when she is ready.

Thank you Betty, Laurie and Karen for donating to support this trip and our work!
