WOW! When I went to PetsMart today I thought I was getting a new toy! But guess what? I met my forever family and I am so very happy. Olga and Jorge Plancarte saw me and fell in love with me. And, I now have my very own home. You know what? I fell in love with them too. Life is just great!!!!

Yipee Skipee!! I’ve been adopted and I now have THE COOLEST DAD! I can’t believe that he drove about half way to San Antonio just to meet ME!! He had only seen my picture before. It was love at first sight for both of us. My Dad’s name is John Romere and we are going to live in Houston. I am going to be his only pup and I think I will have a life full of love and attention. I am quite the happy little guy!

Adopted Charmaine Montgomery


Little Charmaine, second from the right, found her new forever home today!  Lucky girl!


Photo: This is the little 12 year old boy surrendered to the HSPCA! His owner became homeless and was forced to leave her pets. Thanks to the foster offer from Margaret, this boy is SAFE.

IN THE HOUSE – Milo Davis

Mr. Milo’s mom became homeless and had to surrender her pets to the HSPCA.  Milo is 12 and had some skin allergies so most folks would pass him by at the shelter.  WE HAVE HIM NOW, thanks to fantastic foster offer by Margaret.  We’ll get those allergies gone and him in a new home.

Buttercup cutie pie

BUTTERCUP enroute to new foster home

Little miss walk-about, Buttercup Waco, is hanging in Philly for a couple of days then off to Houston to FM Kim’s home.  Little escape artist better not need anymore adventures.  Buttercup is a Waco puppymill survivor who literally climbed out of her foster mom’s fenced in yard.  We searched for her for a good 10 days and finally, thanks to Safe Haven No-Kill Sanctuary’s loaned traps, she was caught!!  Whew!


Bourbon Checking out

Bourbon Orleans checking out

We went ahead with Bourbon Orleans’ surgery to fix his broken leg.  He was in just too much pain.  I know you all will think we’re nuts, but we just couldn’t let it go on.  We have a lot of faith in our followers!  So far, we have $1,960 raised of the total $3500 needed.    HERE is his PAYPAL link.  If you can help, this adorable little Louisiana citizen will totally appreciate it. 


Cute little Barkettes–Mallory, Maisie, Michael

Three adorable little 8 week old puppies were surrendered to BARC, the Houston area city shelter.  Mom is a shih tzu, dad is a terrier.  How cute are they?  They are now 11 weeks old.  They will be able to go to a home in about a month.  If you are interested apply now.  They can be pre-adopted by an approved home with another young puppy to burn up their energy RIGHT NOW.  Apply at


Have a very happy day today, my fantastic friends.
