Please help Our Special Needs Furkids


We can't do it without Your Help!



Through donations from caring people like you we are able to help these special needs fur kids to live a full life in spite of their disabilities.

Andy is a Flat Coated Retriever mix who had been abandoned as a pup with his litter mates.  Andy has developed hip displeasure and needs surgery very badly.

Andy is a big (110lbs) lovable boy and cannot get around very well.  He is only 5 years old and surgery would allow him to live many more years.






Special need dog Honey after first hip replacement.

Honey has found her Angel ♥

The mother of a fallen American soldier made this donation to commemorate her son's love for animals.

Honey's surgery has been at Columbia Veterinary School.  Honey's left hip has healed and her right hip has recovered.  Honey can now go for walks and run and play like other dogs.

The cost of other Dog's and cat's life threatening surgeries postponed Honey's need.  She has been a wonderful girl and never complained.

My life so far .

Prevention of Animal Abuse And Cruelty

Is A Family Value

Never place an animal abuser in a position of authority. They will abuse
the privilege every time. They will eventually graduate from abusing
animals to abusing humans as their species of choice.


What is Time?


One of the most important things we can give our Pets
is "Time".
The time to love them, care for them, and
train them. Animal Shelters and Rescues across
the country are filled with Pets whose families didn't
have "Time".
Every year, the "Time is up" for 12 million
companion Pets.

Do you have the "Time" to make a difference?


A Shelter Dog asks God...
Author: Joan C. Fremo
Published on: July 29, 2001
Dear God,
What is "Time"?
I hear the sadness in the voices of workers here.
They say my "Time is up", that they have to make
room for yet another dog.
My "Time" is up. I don't know what that means, God. I
only know that my new friends are so sad, and the more I
wag my tail---the harder I try to make them feel better--
-the sadder they become.
I know I have heard that word "Time" before, but I don't
understand. When I was younger, my people would
say "Time to play!" They would throw the ball, and I
would run fast. Sometimes I brought it back to them, but
other times we'd end up chasing each other having fun.
I remember "Time to eat". My people would put down a
bowl of food, and I would enjoy dinner, wagging my tail
in joy. There was also "Time for your walk". My boy
would put my leash on, and we would go walking together,
visiting the neighborhood and enjoying each other's company.
When I was younger I thought "Time" meant fun.
Or maybe Love?
I don't understand. "Time" must mean something else, but
how can it change, God? Before I came here, I heard my
people say, "No time to feed you now, boy. Later, when I
get home." Sometimes my family would forget, and there
was no food in my bowl.

Does "Time" mean when my belly hurts?
My people said there was no time for walks. I tried to
hold it all day long-- but God, I just couldn't anymore.
When I finally had to go, it made my family very angry.
Does "Time" means anger? Or maybe Loneliness?
My family said they didn't have "Time". They didn't have
time to play, or time to take me to the vet, or time to
go for walks. They didn't have "Time",
so they brought me here.
Maybe I was right... They said they didn't have time,
and if "Time" means Love, how did they lose it?
Did I do something wrong?

God, I think my new friends are sending me to you. Do
you have "Time"? May I sit on the couch?
Am I a good Dog, God?
Is it "Time"?
