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.

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!
