One of our wonderful fosters found Daisy in the woods in Northern North Carolina. She was kicked out of a van to live on her own with her sister. (Sister has been taken in by another person and doing well). Daisy is so sweet but needed to learn how to be on a leash and become house broken and socialized. After about 4 months Daisy was spayed and fully vetted and ready to head to her new forever home and family.... her very first family and home that is and she is doing fantastic as you can see in the pictures! She lives not too far from Cruiser. Her family has stated that Daisy has brought joy back into their lives and we are so happy for them. Happy Tails Daisy! *Special thank you to Anna S. and Tim S. for helping her new journey possible.
We were contacted by Cruiser's owner asking for help with re-homing him as they were moving and could not take him with them. Cruiser's original handler a Vietnam Veteran passed away four years ago, he was then re-homed with an active police officer. We took Cruiser and immediately started working on getting him vetted and his health improved for a new home, within two weeks we found a new home and wonderful family to adopt Cruiser. Cruiser is an active service dog however at the age of 12 we officially held a retirement ceremony for Cruiser. He is now enjoying his retirement in Massachusetts with a loving family and a whole community of other retired dogs. They do daily walks and weekly dog block parties. We couldn't be happier! Happy Tails Cruiser!
Scooby was found lying in the road after being hit by a car, while a search team was out looking for another dog that had escaped his back yard from the horrible storm that was going through (South Carolina) Scooby was found he was rushed to the vet and into surgery. His leg had to be amputated, in search his owners were found who no longer wanted him so ownership was transferred to the individual who found him. After months of rehabilitation and getting neutered and up to date on vaccines the hunt for a new forever family was on a roll. After months of advertising him our rescue found a new forever home up North in Massachusetts with a loving family wanting to fill the sorrow of losing their dog to old age. To date Scooby is living the good life and enjoying his new family and the snow! Thank you to everyone involved to making his new journey possible.
Brownie and Strider got a new home with loving families, both puppies of the same litter were advertised free to good home but we immediately contacted the owner requesting release to us so we could make sure they went into good homes and they did, Brownie and Strider are loving their new homes and families. Happy tails boys!
This is an amazing story about Roxy who went from near death to 9 months of rehab to finding a new forever home for Christmas! Roxy was abandoned in a home when her family up and left her. They were being evicted and chose to leave her behind, the landlord did not want Roxy and did nothing to help her, the neighbors would feed Roxy through a hole in the fence. One of the rescues we work with in Texas "Rescue Lane" pulled Roxy from the horror she was living, Roxy was skin and bones. After months of nourshiment Roxy found a new home however after 3 months Roxy's behavior changed in a bad way. Rescue Lane had to take her back but was in need of an immediate foster with experience with behavior and medical conditions in dogs and that's where we come in. We got Roxy transported from Texas up to one of our experienced Board members in West Virginia. Once we got Roxy we found out she was double dosed with flea, tick and heartworm prevention which filled Roxy full of toxins causing the behavioral turn. We also leanred she was heartworm positive. Our Board member Tim worked with Roxy for 9 months detoxing her and working with her behavior around people and other dogs and cats. He took her to her vet appointments, through the process Roxy improved and her behavior changed and her health improved she became a healthy happy dog and was cleared by the vet and ready for her new forever home. Roxy was transported back to Texas to Rescue Lane where they found her a new forever home and family, Roxy was adopted at Christmas 2019. Sometimes it takes time and team work to save a life but every second is worth it! We are so happy and proud of Roxy! Thank you Tim for all you did for Roxy!
Petey Chomper's story is a complicated one that ended with being rehomed by us by the perfect new Dad and at the perfect time. Petey had a different name when he came to us. He was named after his owner's favorite drink but when his owner was arrested she could no longer keep him so a friend took him who in return couldn't keep him either so he reached out to us for help with a new home. We had Petey fully vetted and within 24 hours of networking Petey he found a new forever home! We transported Petey up to his new home and family in Virginia where he fitted right in and enjoying life but what makes this rehoming amazing is his new Dad lost his dog within in days of Petey's arrival to cancer. Petey helped his new Dad and other dog heal and push forward. To date Petey and his new family have bonded with amazing love and happiness. This truly is about "timing is everying".
Murphy was a dog walking client of ours for over a year from 2018 to 2019 however Murphy needed a home where he could grow and use his skills and what no better place then a farm! We found Murphy a new home in Massachuets on a farm! He even has is own chicken! Murphy has grown so much and uses his skills to help with firewood. He loves long days working on the farm and playing at the beach with his friends. He loves the snow! We miss Murphy but so happy to see Murphy evolve into the awesome dog he is.
In February 2019 we were contacted in helping with a rehoming for a Lab puppy in South Carolina. The current owner was not able to keep the puppy so we agreed to take the puppy into our rescue and find her a new forever home which didn't take long. Ella was cleared with a clean health record and ready for travel. On March 22, 2019 we drove Ella to her new forever home in Massachuetts. We are so happy to see her grow and enjoy her new home and family. We want to thank the previous owner for reaching out and wanting the best for Ella and to her new forever family!
Ralphie was rescued by us in July along with all his brothers and sisters and Mom. Within a month everyone was adopted but Ralphie. After a failed meet and greet where another larger dog attacked Ralphie he became very timid. Another month went by and no interest for him and another month nothing. We trained Ralphie that he would sit for treats, walk on a leash, house trained, crate trained, got along with cats and other dogs his size or smaller, loves car rides and most of all loves his blanket and still no interest. After a few months of no interest the owner of RTWC adopted Ralphie. She could see a special talent in Ralphie and they became best buddies. Ralphie is in training to be an Ambassador for anti bullying. Ralphie goes on long transports from SC to MD with us and his sister Opal. He is such a fun silly dog with manners says his new forever Mom. Congrats to Ralphie and his new journey in living the good life!
