  • We've had a rough day today. Gigi had to get dental surgery and we are trying to comfort her as she recovers. Yorkie's usually have very bad teeth, so for her being older it's not a surprise, but we still feel awful. And she might need to wear a tiny little cone for two weeks, ughhh 😿

  • Happy Meow Monday! Muffin is a 9yo sweetie who is looking for a forever home. She's a super social, sweet girl who was sadly surrendered to us when her owner lost her home. She loves to sleep with you and is a total lap kitty. She’s very friendly, mellow, and lovable. She gets along with other cats given proper introduction, and is looking for a family to give her all the love she deserves! 
Muffin will need to be on a primarily wet food diet because she had lots of teeth removed due to an infection. You can meet her at Pet Food Express in Rockridge!

  • Blondie is the most beautiful girl ever! She’s not only a looker, she’s also so loving. 💗 She greets everyone with a big smile and wagging tail. She gives the best hugs and the funniest toothy kisses. 💋 Once she feels comfortable, she lets her goofy puppy side come out. She has a blast playing with the other dogs in her foster home and racing around the yard. Fill out an application for her today at helpadogsmile.org.

  • Adoption day... my favorite! I always cringe when I get an owner surrender that is a senior.  I know they take a little bit longer to place, but the Brittany stars were lined up perfectly for this special boy.  5 weeks as a NBRAN boy and then boom... perfection. I had been working with his family off and on since November 2018.  They had lost their beloved Brittany and wanted another,  but needed heart healing time. When I introduced this gem, they knew he was the one. They have had 4 britts and never had a talkative one. Surprise!  Dakota has ALOT to say.  He is a chatter box that absolutely loves life and adjusted to foster life seamlessly.  Folks always ask me how I do what I do.  The easy answer is LOOK! When you get the first update of them lying in the bed and the family is full of joy, it makes all the tears worth it!  As I drove to the adoption, it was as if he whispered in my ear.. I’m forever safe and forever loved, and I know it! Thanks Mike and Daisy for fostering!  Dakota is home! #dakota #dakotaorange #brittany #brittanyspaniel #brittanyspanielsofinsta #brittanyspanielsofinstagram #volunteer #rescue #foster #transport #adopt #adoptdontshop #seniorbrittany #foreversafe #foreverloved #nbran #nbranwest #nbranco #colorado savingonebrittanyatatime #inmemoryofmalcolm 🌈

  • 3 days united after 2 months of waiting and I couldn’t be any happier with this little queen of scruff. If you’re thinking about adding a doggo fur-babe to your life please consider rescuing. 
Honey is from China and was found ditched and homeless after having a litter of her own puppies. 
Iris @sunshine_rescue_china takes such close care of these animals until they are healthy enough to travel to a new home and considers so carefully who is the right person for each munchkin. I have had the best experience with this process and highly recommend it for anyone who is considering. 
Honey is 2yrs old and now has such a safe (and spoiled 🙈) home here in Vancouver. After all she’s been through, the amount of love and loyalty she has shown me since our first hour together makes me the blessed one in this situation. #adoptdontshop 🥰

  • I recently had someone give me an eye roll and walk away right after I asked if their horse was a thoroughbred (I was trying to give a compliment- their horse was beautiful!). They responded she was a “WARMBLOOD/TB cross”. Shortly after the response I watched said WB/TB go in the ring and act like a little brat with the same rider. I later went home and both my fiancé and I rode my thoroughbred mare (OTTB at that) who has hardly been ridden this winter and was a perfect angel. As a horse lover, animal lover, and advocate for both I’m sick of the stigmatism in the hunter world towards thoroughbreds. Most give their all for people’s personal gains and deserve so much more respect and admiration no matter what career they end up in after their racing days.

  • 🎉 And another adoption! 🎉 Mia, the little stray puppy turned in to San Bernardino shelter injured that had to have her eye removed was just adopted tonight! 🙌 👍 🙌  She’s all healed up from her eye surgery and growing so big and so fast! Once she started to heal and feel better she started growing like a weed and is already now 15.5lbs! She’s going to be a big girl and we can’t wait to see updates and see how big she gets. From literally hours away from being euthanized to now being part of a loving family instead. Yes! All day, every day, yes, that’s what keeps us going!👌 We will be seeing you again Mia. Until we do, keep growing up strong and beautiful with your new family. 🥰🥰

READY... LET’S PLAY! 
Romeo @brookhaven_animalshelter is yet another forgotten senior who has been waiting behind shelter walls for 3 years. He arrived at the shelter back in June of 2015 and has been longing for a loving home and family ever since. 
This boy is a beautiful, brindle, Terrier Mix who is about 9 years young, 60 pounds, knows all his basic commands, and is eager to please. He very fun, active, sweet and affectionate, won’t someone please open their heart and home and give Romeo a chance?
Romeo would do best in a home with no other pets, but with him by your side, you’ll need no other. I know that needing to be an only pet in a home sounds like impossible criteria, but it really isn’t. There are many homes out there that fit this criterion. There is that one special person/family that is missing a boy like Romeo from their lives. Won’t someone please open their heart and home and give Romeo a chance? #adoptdontshop, #shelterdog, #nydog, #adoptabledog, #waitingtoolong #seniordog #seniordogsrock #brindle #brookhavenanimalshelter

  • I’ve been feeling down and anxious ever since my dad left last night- Something about a bizness trip. Mom keeps talking to me but we all know Dad is my Hooman.  I keep rushing to the garage door but I’m just hearing things. 😟 #saddog #abandonmentissues #waytoosadfor1day

  • Adopt don’t shop ❤️🐾 Reina is looking for her Forever Home 🏡 This 1 year old corgi mix girl was saved from death row in a local shelter and placed in a loving foster home. It’s amazing to see how sweet and friendly Reina is even though life has been so unkind to her; she still finds it in her heart to love and trust humans. Amazing, right?! Us humans definitely have a lot to learn from animals...❤️🙏🏻Help us find Reina the loving home she deserves. Here’s a few reasons why She would make a great addition to any family: 🐾she’s great with kids
🐾gets along with other dogs
🐾knows how to walk on a leash
🐾loves to play 🐾likes to cuddle
🐾she’s always so happy it’s contagious
🐾has the most beautiful smile
🐾loves belly rubs
🐾she has her shots up to date and is currently in the process of being house trained
.
.
The list goes one, Reinas truly an awesome doggy and she deserves a happy and secure life. Please share her story and help us give her the best gift possible, a family to call her own and please don’t buy a dog, instead rescue and adopt one that needs a Home. For every dog that sleeps in a safe place, there are thousands that do not.
