Abandoned Puppy Finds Happy Ending

Ed and his brother & sister had a very rough start in life. They were found December 2011 during a blizzard in a ditch at just a few weeks old. All of the puppies were very feral when they arrived and it took a lot of time before they would allow us to touch them. But after some trust issues were solved they all came around. As you can see Ed has turned into a very handsome boy. Ed is living the life with his new Mom & Dad and his best friend who just happens to be a cat. Great job Ed. You are a very lucky boy and we are very thankful you have found your forever home. ... read more

Abandoned Puppies Find Happy Homes

Eight three week old puppies and their Mommy were found dumped on a country road in Mills County, Iowa. The Mom was markedly underweight and several of the babies were in very bad shape, but with a lot of TLC they rapidly improved.

All of these darling puppies have been adopted to forever homes. Thank you to everyone who adopted one of these little angels. They had a rough start in life but they are all fighters and they had a wonderful Mommy to help them through their tough times. [perma link]

Wilma Has Been Adopted

Wilma was found along with her sister, Black Betty & brother, Fast Freddie in a box next to a dumpster at a very young age.
