OUR FEATURED PETS . . .
Maxwell  was a stray dog who wandered into someone's yard and was not treated well by the dogs already living there, so he was brought to us. He was quite shy at first, and rarely barked. But he has become accustomed to the other small dogs and he loves to run around in the fenced yard on warm days, and play with his little friends.  Maxwell would love a real home, with people who appreciate his gentle nature. He is crate trained and house trained and would be fine with children and other pets. If you are an older person looking for a companion or a younger family looking for a gentle pet, little Maxwell would be just the dog for you.

Gina Marie is a sweet and affectionate girl. She coos like a dove instead of meowing. She’s submissive around other cats, so would do best in a household with just one or two other cats or as your ‘one and only‘. She loves people and just wants to be loved and held. She is sure to bring sunshine into your house for a lifetime.

Back in the mid 2000's Deb Boyle was part of our network of rescue groups in New York state.  We recently received this letter from her and want to share it with you . . .
I recently found an old Pet Record pamphlet for the dog my dad adopted from you folks and I though you might like to hear about what a wonderful life this sweetheart had.

Her name is listed as Bess, but my dad renamed her “Peanut”. She arrived here via a rescue transport to New York state. 
My dad was recovering from an aortic aneurysm and had lost his will to go on.  I suggested that he ‘try’ Bess out for a few days before adopting, to which he agreed.  The very next day he called me demanding that I take “Conan The Destroyer” back asap.  She had knocked a plant off of his sill while looking out the window.  I was shocked that he said this, but reluctantly took her back to my home.

The next day he called me, frantic to have the dog back.  He was miserable without her company and missed her human-like smile.  Needless to say, he adopted her and they had an amazing relationship.  He now became more active, taking her for walks, cooking her special dinners, calling her the best woman he ever met, etc., etc., etc.  That dog was so ‘into’ what my dad was doing that, if he was digging holes in his garden for vegetable plants, she would help him dig the holes!  I saw this with my very own eyes!  Amazing!  This dog changed his life more than you can imagine---a match made in heaven.
