Wilma was a baby herself when we rushed to save her and her 6 puppies from the shelter where they had been given a few hours to live; she was about 8 months old.
After nursing her babies, Wilma went to her current foster family. They are veteran fosters, extremely knowledgeable to help harder cases like Wilma’s. She was considered feral and would empty her bladder at the touch of human hands. No eye contact. Frozen in fear. Wouldn’t leave her crate and they worked through each her challenges, one by one. She set the pace and they followed. They never treated her as if she was broken.
Every day she made progress. She fell smitten with her foster dad, which motivated her to leave her crate to follow him around. Her foster mom always encourages the pack to support the foster sibling through their transition. They each assured her that she was in a safe place. They showed her to play, master the doggie door, sit pretty for treats and best, to trust the rehabilitation process.
In the midst of Wilma’s fear, 13-year-old Cyrus, her blind and zen sister, nurtured her and showed her to trust. Cyrus has become Wilma’s greatest healing force and Best Friend!
Wilma recently had her 1st birthday. Since living with her foster family, they have introduced her to home life, the beautiful feeling of the wind hitting your face while riding in a car, sleeping peacefully in a clean and warm bed, being part of a pack, confidence, and the beautiful side of humanity.
Though she is still working through her challenges, the amazing progress she’s made, makes our hearts burst with admiration and love to see her resilience and victories.
Wilma is available for adoption and will need an experienced adopter that will continue to help her thrive. She’s not the type that will jump in your arms or show affection; she’s the type that will come when called and will love you from her safe space; this doesn’t mean that she won’t do it in the future, she’s just not doing that now. She loves dogs and has a resilient spirit. She’s an underdog with a heart of gold that will bring lots of happiness and beauty to the family that adopts her. She’s our hero!

Meet Adam, he is a 4 year old Chi Mix boy with a loving loyal heart. He enjoys sitting near his human during the day. He sleeps on his bed at night and is potty trained.
He is healing from a skin condition he came with when he joined our squad, but it’s getting better every day with the treatment our vet is having us follow.
He’s quite the talker... he’ll let you know that he has something to say or needs your attention. He tolerates other dogs but prefers to be the center of attention. He loves belly rubs and sitting on laps. He can be the best office companion with his calm energy. He enjoys eating and therefore needs his diet watched carefully.
Adam is an overall loving pup who is looking for his perfect match. If you are interested in this handsome hero, please submit an Adoption Interest Application found on our website under forms.
Stewie’s only wish in the whole world is to please you! He is a handsome 9 yr old Chi-Mix about 10 lbs. We are very fortunate to have him, he was extremely close to death. His human died and the landlord had scheduled to euthanize him before we saved him.
He is such a delight! He rides great in the car, loves his walks, he’s a great dancer and loves everyone! He’s sooooo grateful and all smiles! He’s full of life and spunk. He’s a ball of joy and happiness; his joy is contagious! ⠀
He can definitely see well and his 9-year-old little body is sturdy and strong! He has brought sooo much joy and laughter to his foster home and he will do the same for his new forever family when he gets adopted. He is perfect around humans, other dogs, cats, perfect in the car and restaurants. He just wants to be with you wherever you go and be a good boy; he wants to be friends with everybody.
He is completely housebroken. He even sits in front of the door and looks at you when he needs to go! He is a fast learner. He doesn’t play much, sleeps a lot, loves short walks but again, all he wants is to be wherever you are and follow you around. He loves to be tucked in at night. And his dream is to sleep right next to you all night; he loves to cuddle. Senior pups need love too... and deserve second chances.
Little Stewie is ready to love and bring happiness to his new human’s life. And remember, age is just a number! ⠀ This is what gratitude looks like. This is what loving life looks like. This is what a rescued hero looks like. He’s pure love... Are you his new forever human?
