Update on Golda :)

We got some updated pics of Golda today after her vet visit and she is still amazing as ever!

Golda may have to have one of her teeth removed as it is causing some pretty intense irritation to her gums where there are no teeth. We're looking into pricing today and we're checking out some other options. We'll keep everyone updated!

Big Thanks!

We'd like to go ahead and take the time to thank a few people in our rescue lives who are making a big difference in the lives of the dogs we love!

Beverley, thank you so much for your generous donation to the care of Mr. Dolla' Bill (the name and the meaning behind the name is SO funny)! It helps out so much!

Marva, Pam, and Sommer, thank you SO much for opening your homes to dogs in need! You all have made a huge difference in the lives of the dogs in your home so give yourselves a BIG hug from US to YOU!

Amie, Marva, Pam, Megan, and Beverley, thank you guys for taking the time out of your busy lives to help spread the word about us. We really, really appreciate the effort and time spent on your part. Keep telling people about us as word of mouth is always THE BEST form of advertising :)

And just in case you guys might be wondering about how some of the dogs are doing, we'll share :)

Look at one of Juno's shelter pictures:

And now a picture from our event on the 20th:

Marva, she looks WONDERFUL!

And :) Complimentary puppy pictures!

And Dolla' Bill!

Thank you again everyone!

Myspace :)

Hey you guys! Don't forget that we have a Myspace page set up for the rescue. Show your continued support for New Hope by adding us today!

Oh! And the beautiful pooch below got the goal amount of $150! They still have more on that bill to pay but what a great thing internet networking can do!

Ramon Needs Your Help!

This might be a bit disturbing to look at but the reality of the situation, his plight, and other dogs like him is VERY real!

Ramon was picked up as a stray - missing half of one of his back legs!! I mean...this is why it's disturbing, the bone was exposed! :(

Please look at Ramon's picture, and then go visit the Fundable page that the Anderson County Humane Society has up for him. The ACHS is a 501c3 organization so your donations are tax deductible. No donations will be taken until their initial goal of $150 has been reached.

We'll update as we learn more about Ramon's situation. Bless this pup!

Donate for Ramon's Care!

Lots More Going On!

First order of business is to let everyone know that we are having a volunteer meeting on September 23rd at 7PM at the Arby's on Hwy 78. Shoot an email over to if you need more information. We're going to be organizing our volunteers and discussing upcoming events and plans. Things are picking up and its vital that everyone is clear on what's going on and how they can help :)

Next...We got Golda! She is a dog that touches everyone's hearts right away! We are not kidding when we say she melts at your feet for some attention. Her foster home is quickly falling in love lol! Within the next couple of weeks, we'll be taking Ms. Happy Golda in for a vet visit to get her all checked out. She is missing some teeth and there's at least one that is broken. We also want to get her heart checked out since she had a pretty bad case of heartworms. We will keep everyone updated on her progress and hope for the best!

Tino Rambino, his owner is going to foster him for us while we look for a new home for him so Yay! That helps us out SO much!

Now, time to list some dogs in the area shelters who are needing our help. There are always a handful of them but maybe one will pique your interest and you'll be interested in fostering :)
First, we have Vinnie:

He's been in the shelter for a lil while now and REALLY needs to get out. He's young, under a year and came into the shelter with the stitches from his crop still in his ear. He is SO sweet. If he could get inside your skin, he would, just to be close to you.

Next is this big lug:

The ladies at the shelter love the big mushball and would love even more to see him make it out of the shelter alive. He appears to be housebroken too! Added bonus! His only vice is that he is a fence climber. Getting him neutered should help with him wanting to roam but a potential foster home will need to be dedicated to making sure he stays where he is safe. He's approximately 65lbs right now but could potentially be 70-75lbs.

Next is Sammy.

She's about a year and a half old and is currently in a privately run shelter facility. She gets along very well with other dogs and is as playful and happy as can be. Don't you just LOVE her ears! Sammy isn't thriving where she is at since most of the dogs are older and just can't keep up with her or simply don't want to.

If you are interested in helping out any of these dogs by fostering them (which is providing a temporary home until the dogs find their new permanent home) please fill out our Foster Application.

If you are interested in out right adopting, please visit our Petfinder Page and view our adoptable pets.

Thank you to everyone out there making things happen for these dogs! We appreciate all the effort you've put forth!

What's Going On?

Lots of stuff! We've been super duper busy lately with so many different things so we apologize for the delay in updating the blog :)

Remember Golda?

Hopefully she'll be coming down to us this weekend! Yay for Golda! We can't wait :D

Next, we just brought in littermates from an area shelter where they were turned in because the owner was in the hospital with sever brain injuries :( They are in wonderful foster home now getting socialization with a wide variety of animals. :) We will need to move them into new foster homes in about a month so more one on one attention can be provided to them so keep that in mind!

Now, I know you guys are DYING to name these pups! To help offset the costs of vetting the pups, we thought it would be a great idea to allow the public the opportunity to name these guys. We're asking for a $10 donation per name chosen, with a maximum of 2 names per puppy. We've set up a special widget on their individual petfinder pages to make things easier when donating :)

If you like this lil brindle girl:

Visit her Petfinder Page.

Got an eye for the fawn lady?

Name her at her Petfinder Page.

This brindle boy is gorgeous isn't he??

Visit his Petfinder Page to name him :)

Next in our update list here is Tino! You guys remember him right?

He needs to come back into rescue and we need a foster home for him! If you all haven't seen it yet, you need to watch Tino's video on his Petfinder Page :) He's a goof ball and we love him to pieces! We can't consider bringing in any more dogs until Tino is safe in a new foster home! If you want to foster Tino, please fill out our Foster Application.

Anyway, there is a ton more to update about, but I'll save that for tomorrow or Friday. Keep your eyes peeled and thank you to EVERYONE who has come through recently for us! We appreciate it!

How Many of You...

Know what this video says to be true? Did you *really* rescue your dog? Or was it the other way around?

Thank you Cynthia Miller!
