And get your 2011 tax deduction.
We are rapidly approaching 2012. Can you believe this? We still have many, many adorable little pups that are new in our program. We’d like to get them in next week for vetting. And then – on to new forever homes.
You can still make a donation toward these little fluffers and get a nice tax deduction for 2011 if you donate before midnight.
Please consider these little puppers. We have had a very busy fourth quarter in this rescue and we want to continue to save these most deserving little dogs.
Since November, we have taken in over 40 dogs.
Please check out the listings below. Some of them have been fully funded, some are partially funded. Some have nothing.
There is a short description of each dog and a paypal link BENEATH each photo. If one or more of these needy and deserving little dogs strike you, please consider a small (or large) donation to help us help them.
The holiday season is one of the two WORST times to be an unwanted dog. Strays abound, owners are surrendering the dogs they have been thinking about getting rid of so that they don’t have to pay boarding fees when they go on vacation, puppymills and breeders are dumping their left over stock as well as the pregnant mommas that have not delivered yet. The majority of these little dogs are very, very young. How can we possibly let them die? We could not even consider it but now need your help. I know we cannot save them all, but we try to save as many as we possibly can.
Jock Barker – unbelievably, this 14 year old lhasa boy was surrendered by his owner to the local city shelter just five days before Christmas.
We went and got him the day after he was dumped. The wonderful shelter staff kept him in the office so he wouldn’t be exposed to the back. He is fitting in well with Voltaire and Claude. Ha. I now have the geriatric ward at my house.
and even posed for a Christmas photo.
Gelt Turner – gorgeous little lhasa boy turned in by his owner.
Snowflake Harris – This little boy was a stray found by the Harris County Animal Control. Even though well groomed, no one came to get him.
Sunday Hatcher – this messed up little girl was looking at no options at the shelter – bad teeth, cloudy, infected eyes gave her little opportunity for adoption. The shelter asked us to take her. When all other options were exhausted, we picked her up.
SUNDAY’S MEDICAL IS COMPLETELY FUNDED!!
Mr. Comet Montgomery was owner surrendered to a shelter. He is heartworm positive so was not really adoptable from the shelter. How could we let him die. His chipin includes intake vetting sponsorship plus his heartworm treatment.
Dreidel Vetters – cute little boy was found by a good client of our vet. They tried to find him a home, but it did not work out. Very young, maybe two years old, very sweet personality.
Eggnog Harris – very cute, very matted little dog on her last day at the county shelter. Unbelievably sweet, very deserving. Just a little doll baby. Maybe one year old.
Gorgeous, adorable Drummer is another county shelter parolee. He was just a black matted mess when we first saw him but WOW he cleaned up wel.
Hudson Harris was yet another little guy on death row at the local county shelter. How cute is he?

This pretty boy, Bradford Harris, was another whished away from the local shelter in the nick of time. I just do not understand why so many cute dogs end up in the shelters. Please help us help them.
Butterbean is a cute little guy that was living tied up in a yard for years. Finally, a neighbor got fed up and rescued the little guy. Of course, he has heartworms.
Diamond Waller Davis – This stunning little girl was yet another of the Waller County pupsters.

Gorgeous Vixen Cartwright was found as a stray in a south Houston neighborhood. She is an unbelievably sweet, loving little girl, but unfortunately has heartworms.
Gorgeous Miss Mistletoe was rescued from a bad situation and brought to our rescue. She was matted horribly, has demodex and heartworms. The demodex cannot be treated until after she is heartworm negative so we need to get this girl done quickly.
MISTLETOEs PAYPAL LINK HERE is for both intake and heartworm treatment.

This gorgeous girl, Dancer Ranger, was a stray running around in a rural area west of Houston. A good samaritan found her and brought her to us. How cute is she.
Mr Jolly Kaplan was known in the Vermilion Parish shelter as Ol Man. Yes, he is an elderly little old man, with one missing eye and blind in the other, but so so sweet. He also has heartworms. So, guess what? We want to be able to treat him. Please help little Ol Man Jolly Kaplan.
JOLLY KAPLAN IS SPONSORED IN FULL!!

Sugar Plum Harris. Older gal, mammary tumors, missing teeth, bad eyes, stinky skin, but oh so sweet. It is amazing that dogs can be so neglected and yet so forgiving.
Cute Mr. Mayflower Mongtomery was saved from a local county shelter. He is resting comfortably in his foster home but needs to get stuff snipped.

Yes, you are seeing right. Little momma and four gorgeous puppies. Momma, Melody Barker, was pulled from the Houston city shelter just hours before her gorgeous babies were born. She is also high heartworm positive.
Pluto Irving came to us from the shelter in Irving, TX. He had been hit by a car. A vet in the DFW area fixed him up, but we had to do some significant tweaking of the repair at GCVS under the amazing Dr. Beale.
PLUTO’s surgery (a WHOPPING $3800 on top of the $1000 in Dallas) is totally sponsored. Pluto is now starting rehab and is expected to go to rehab twice a week for 12 weeks. The very discounted cost is $62 per day.
Sabrina Montgomery was thrown out of her owners car at the county shelter. She was not badly injured, but we immediately found that she had massive amounts of blood in their urine. She had to have emergency surgery to remove the bladderstones.
SABRINA IS SPONSORED IN FULL.
Griffin Stafford – It is certainly hard to believe, but this TINY little boy was left at a south Houston shelter. He is so unbelievably sweet it is ridiculous.
We took in another of the Waller County breeder dogs, Moneypenny. She has a horrible case of demodex but is responding well.
Sylvia Ranger was found just wandering the streets. She is very pretty, shy but very sweet.
