October 31, 2010.  Meet Dewey, our first project after Doomed Dogs went on Facebook. He was on death row at the animal shelter in Gaffney, SC and was scheduled to be killed in two days.  Doomed Dogs raised $75 to sponsor Dewey with the Cherokee County Humane Society.  The Humane Society pulled him from the shelter, got him neutered and checked out medically and then found a rescue to take him. He was later adopted by a nice family.

We joined with other donors to sponsor Baron, a sweet Pyr mix, to keep him out of a kill shelter in Arkansas.  Alissa, the selfless woman who runs Arkansas Great Pyrenees Rescue, now has him in a foster home.

Blackjack is Fluffy's son.  He was dumped at the shelter at the same time she was.  They are inseparable, so when the Great Pyr rescue in New Hampshire took Fluffy, Blackjack got his Get-Out-of-Jail-Free card, too!  We sponsored Blackjack's transport to New Hampshire.


Fluffy, a lovely three-year-old pure bred Great Pyr, was dumped at a shelter because her family "did not have enough time for her".  She would have been put to sleep if not for Lonestar Pyrs and Paws, a fantastic, large Great Pyr rescue in New Hampshire.  We sponsored Fluffy to pay for her medical and transport from a shelter in Tiptonville, TN to New Hampshire,

Updated 12/19/10:  Korine is now doing very well in foster care with Great Pyrenees Rescue of Atlanta, but this is how she looked in mid-October.

Korine is a pure-bred Great Pyrenees that was apparently deliberately starved by her owner.  She was found as a stray and the people at Great Pyrenees Rescue of Atlanta immediately volunteered to rescue her.

We sponsored part of the costs for GPRA to help this poor, mistreated dog.

GPRA is doing a fantastic job in bringing her back to good health.  Here's what she looked like after a month - amazing how fast she recovered:

This is a picture of what she looked like in December - hard to believe it is the same dog!  GPRA rocks!

Hobo was a stray picked up in rural South Carolina.  He ended up in the Gaffney, SC kill shelter, where he languished.  He reached his deadline to be put to sleep, and the Cherokee Humane Society got a reprieve for two days.  They asked us to sponsor his boarding for a few weeks until they could find a rescue to take him. We did, they pulled him on on the last day and now he is safe in rescue!



Cookie was dumped at the Gaffney, SC kill shelter.  No one was interested in adopting her, so she was due to die.  In a package deal with Hobo, the Cherokee Humane Society got her a reprieve while they looked for a sponsor.  We agreed to sponsor both of them, they were pulled at the last minute and they are both safe in rescue!

Manny is a gorgeous young Great Pyrenees.  He is a long-time buddy of Bonjo.  They ended up in the same kill shelter and while we were helping National Akbash Rescue save Bonjo, Manny came as a package deal.  We sponsored his medical costs and boarding costs while a foster was found.  He is now being fostered in Tennessee.



Bonjo is a handsome young Akbash dog, a relative of the Great Pyrenees.  He was doomed to die in an Arkansas kill shelter when we spotted him on-line and notified National Akbash Rescue.  They agreed to take responsibility for him if we sponsored him.  He was pulled from the shelter and is now being fostered in Arkansas while he waits for the right owner to come along.  We sponsored his medical and boarding costs for a few weeks while National Akbash arranged for a foster.  Bonjo is a good example of a situation where the Doomed Dogs Rescue's support makes the difference between life and death to a dog - if not for our sponsorship, the rescue could not have taken the financial risk of indefinite boarding costs while a foster was found.
