  • Rescue Stories: Meet Sugar

    Meet Sugar

    (Sugar Now)

    Sugar was found by her new mom Deborah on Pet Finder’s Pug Lover’s Rescue. Deborah filled out an application and sent it via e-mail and was contacted in 10 mins about adopting her. Sugar is deaf, and she was still sick when she arrived into Deborah's care. Deborah wasn’t sure about Sugar and how it would all turn out, because she was requiring a huge amount of care. She was going to the bathroom in the house and was sick a lot. She almost gave up on her. They decided to give her more time, and finally they found out she had worms, and that’s why she was so sick. Once they figured that out and fixed that problem-- she changed into a different dog. Sugar has done one level of Obedience training. Sugar knows the hand signal for come, sit, and wait. If its dark outside and they need to call her in, they use the porch light to get her attention to tell her it is time to come inside. Sugar would love to tell you her story!

  • I Rescued A Human Today

    by Janine Allen

    Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.

    I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn’t be afraid. As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn’t want her to know that I hadn’t been walked today. Sometimes the overworked shelter keepers get too busy and I didn’t want her to think poorly of them.

    As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn’t feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life.

    She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.

    A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.

    I would promise to keep her safe.
    I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.

    I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven’t walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

    I rescued a human today.
