The 6 Emaciated Mals
Rescue, from Sept 20th to Mar 3rd, took in six severely emaciated malinois, ranging in condition from bad to severe. While details of why these dogs are in this condition are hazy it is clear that their owners either couldn't or chose not to provide the care they deserved. All six were placed in foster care where they received desperately needed loving care and medical attention. Five of the six returned to full health and their original Beauty. Santos unfortunately lost the battle but had loving care and attention until the end. Beautiful Spirit, a case of extreme neglect had heartworms, whipworms, and hooks. Ice, nearly as badly emaciated as Spirit, Brooke, a tiny loving beauty at least 12-15 lbs underweight and Lyme disease positive and finally Handsome, Loving Aiden, 15-20 lbs underweight with severe fly bitten ears! You can read the full story.

The Parvo Litter
There was such an outpouring of support for the parvo litter taken into rescue that I fostered three years ago. I would like to thank each of you that donated and let you know where they ended up.
One is now living in Canada, has a little girl of his own and stays busy with the horses and going places with them. One is living in Florida with a wonderful couple who adopted a malinois from rescue before adding him into their family. The last but not least is still in NC living with her newly adopted sister from the litter I fostered last summer. They love him and he is doing wonderful with them.
The 2005 NC Litter
The litter of seven puppies and their mother that came into rescue two years ago. I had the privilege of meeting Sara Flynn-Kramer who drove them down all the way from Florida to NC for me to foster. Again the outpouring of people stepping up to help was so gratifying. Sara later came back and adopted Layla (the puppies mother) whom she named on the trip down.
They all ended up in wonderful homes and one is doing SAR with her adoptive home. One of the litter got to ride on an airplane to her new home in Texas and handled the trip with style. They have all, through the help of each of those who so willingly gave time and efforts, ended up in wonderful homes.
The 2007 Parvo Litter
Totally over-shadowed by the Baltimore Maryland rescue another rescue was unfolding. Three littermates, BEAUTIFUL happy go lucky purebred friendly pups, were rescued in April just days after the MD rescue. Within 48 hours of hearing the pups were in the shelter the first puppy started exhibiting the dreaded signs of Parvo. Our Florida Coordinator took these boys into her home and nursed all three of them through the parvo.
All three recovered and are now adopted!
Your financial support and donations of time, fostering, transport etc made the rescue and treatment of these puppies possible.
The 2006 NC Litter
The litter that came in rescue from last year are all adopted but will never be forgotten. It was amazing to be able to watch each of them grow from the five week old puppies that came into rescue to the young adults they are today. They were each special.
One got to make her home in Florida where she is doing obedience, agility, and herding and yes, I hear she loves the herding. Three of them ended up being adopted in NC and one went up to her new home up north. One went to a home that had adopted one of the parvo puppies from a few years ago. She is very much loved and is doing great with them. The only male in the litter also resides in NC and the couple that got him are doing some scent work with him. There was another little girl that also stayed in NC and she comes to visit with her adopted brother and it always makes me think when I see her how lucky they were because of people that have so graciously donated to rescue and made it possible for these wonderful dogs to have a family of their own.
Without your help, through donations, transport and time, none of these wonderful puppies would ever have found the homes they have now.
Sidra - Treated for Heartworms
Sidra was heartworm positive when she was pulled from a high kill shelter in Florida. Her treatment was expensive and she could only be considered for rescue because of donations made for her care. She spent four months in foster care being treated for heartworms and gaining some much needed weight. During that time she worked on her manners and learned to live in a home. After testing negative for heartworms, she was adopted and now resides just outside of Tampa with a loving family that includes two beautiful girls. They think of Sidra as their sister and this happy ending was only realized because of the generosity of our donors.
