Angel came to us a hairy mess. We weren’t even able to see her eyes too well. We shaved her then bathed her several times to get rid of the smell. It was obvious that she had never had these things done to her before.

Lucinda came from a puppy mill so she has never known love or companionship. She has spent her life in a small cage having litters of pups. She is about 4 years old and weighs about 12 pounds. Her spay was sponsored by a Petfinder grant.

Sherman was a dog sent to us by a lady from Shelby. She found him and tried to find a home for him but could find no one, so she sent him to us. He is a poodle mix — we felt even possibly part Chinese crested. [A couple] came to adopt Laura; they liked her but then saw Sherman and the husband could not stop loving on him. So they ended up deciding to adopt him instead!

Thor is so tiny we gave him a big name. He weighs about 3 pounds but still thinks he is big stuff. He is three years old. Thor came from a breeding kennel so spent his life on the bars of a cage. We thought he was not even going to be able to walk very well but freedom has meant building muscle for this boy and he loves his freedom. Thor can be very timid upon first meeting new people but he loves attention so much that he rolls over for belly rubs.
