In Sanctuary

have all found their forever home!

Thank you for your help with Beauty’s FHO surgery and physical therapy bills. 

She is doing great, please see her success story on Happy Tails!
However we now have Claire who is in desperate need of FHO surgery and physical therapy too but her story is a bit sadder. 

Please DON’T turn away from Claire – any little effort can help!!
It’s incredibly sad, we realize now that elegant, pretty, affectionate 5.5 year old treeing walker coonhound, Claire has been abused! She has a broken femur and possibly has been burned. She was also over-bred. She so deserves a safe and loving life. She is loving her foster mom and very protective of her in the home, but when they are outdoors she is outgoing and sociable on neighborhood walks and in the dogparks. As she is from the country, many new things do scare her, but she is learning about new things (such as the doggy door in the foster home) every day. She goes out through the doggy door to the backyard now when she feels like and plays with her foster sister Cheyenne and other foster dogs. She does very well on the walks meeting new dogs, people and kids. She will walk and play despite her broken femur but she also appreciates the safety of her crate. She is housebroken and crate trained. She loves couches. She will take treats from visitors in the house once she feels comfortable with them. She loves to put her head in your lap and loves to get her ears rubs. Because of her broken hip we are getting FHO surgery for her at Oradell Hospital, which is very expensive so we are hoping that we will receive some donations from caring people to finally let this girl begin to experience a painfree, safe, and loving life that she so deserves. If you are a compassionate and experienced dog handler please apply to adopt or if you are not thinking of adoption, please donate by visiting www.peace4paws.org. We have raised $661.61 from the Thomaston Feed Carwash August 6th. From adopters of River, the O’Brien’s we received $100. Thank you. From adopter of Nacho ( aka Coco) Gil donated $250. Thank you! Each donation is tax deductible. Onxy and Breezy Foundation donated $400. Thank you!! The Ian Somerhalder ( handsome actor, model, director who appeared in Lost and The Vampire Diaries and more) donated $100. So far we have $1511.61 towards a total bill of approximately $5000 plus approximately $1000 for physical therapy at Oradell Animal Hospital. We need approximately $4500 more if you could donate amount big or small it will be greatly appreciated. Also we are looking for that forever family to give loving Claire the life she so very much deserves. She was dumped in a kill shelter – please help her beat the odds!!
