This is Blackie, our mascot, and first rescue. He was a blood donor for a veterinary clinic in Puerto Rico for 4 years. In 2008, we flew him in from Puerto Rico when he was 7 years old. With the help of our founding volunteers, he was rehabilitated, cared for and loved by a three dog family in New Jersey. He lived till a ripe old age, passing away of natural causes a very happy boy.
We try to help those hard to reach companion animals - because like the more easy to find animals - they have the same heart and singular desire to love and be loved forever as a member of their own family!
In 2014, there were over 64,000 beagles in labratories.
There are 7.6 million companion animals that enter shelters each year in the U.S.
