Poptart is a friendly young Labrador Retriever.   He was picked up as a stray and ended up in the Gaffney, SC kill shelter.  He had only a day left before being executed when we offered to sponsor him.  The Cherokee Humane Society accepted our offer and pulled him from the shelter.  We made a donation for his medical and boarding costs.  He is now with a foster family in South Carolina and would love to be adopted by the right forever family!

Talon is a Great Pyrenees that ended up in a Georgia kill shelter.  We spotted him on Petfinder and asked Great Pyrenees Rescue of Atlanta to rescue him, promising to sponsor him.  As usual, these wonderful people agreed to take him.  He is now with a foster family.

Tyler in the shelter - a mess!

Tyler is a cute little Shih Tzu, but that didn't keep him from ending up in the Gaffney, SC kill shelter.  When he had one day left before being killed, we offered to sponsor his medical costs and boarding if the Cherokee Humane Society would pull him.  Although they are very overloaded, they were very happy to agree!  Tyler spent a couple of weeks with the Humane Society and then was adopted by a nice lady from Georgia!

One of the best Pyr rescues in the country is Lonestar Pyr and Paws in New Hampshire.  They have a big foster network and very actively transport dogs from kill shelters in the South.  The weather is far better for Great Pyrs in NH than in Georgia!  When we heard they were bringing in an Akbash from the South, we offered to sponsor him.  Though he has a down-to-earth name, Spud is a gorgeous dog.  We can only hope his forever owners change his name to something more fitting!

Dallas, an Akbash puppy, and his brother Wrangler were together at the Yolo County, CA kill shelter.  We sponsored half of their surprisingly high medical bills to assist National Akbash Rescue and Sierra Pacific Great Pyrenees Rescue in saving these boys.



This is Wrangler.  He and his pal Dallas were in a high kill shelter in Yolo County, CA when Sierra Pacific Pyr Rescue and National Akbash Rescue heard about him.  They pulled him from the shelter but were shocked to hear how much his medical bills were going to be.  We sponsored half the medical bills for the two of them.  Wrangler is now in foster with Sierra Pacific Pyr.
