A Wonderful Addition

"We got our Petey from you around this time 2 years ago. He is such a wonderful addition to our family. He makes me laugh every day and has been such a bright spot through this time. We are lucky to have found him" -- Crystal Diels

The best, best, best way to kick off Thanksgiving week is to share a new PAWSitive Ending story. Just look at this family!   "Pete the Akita (formerly Kota) has settled in so great. Once he got comfy he’s turned out to be the biggest one eyed sweetheart.   He’s a great #3 in the [...]


Mr Mason Macaroni

We always wonder how our dogs are doing in their new homes and so it's wonderful when we hear from the new family. Mason was one of two Elkhound, Norwegian that came to us this Fall. They went to two different homes and we are thrilled to post this short and incredibly sweet PAWSitive Ending [...]

Bubba Jack!

When I see these dogs who are waiting, waiting, waiting to go home and be someone's pet I think of Rusty. Rusty was with us for over two years. Let that sink in. Over. Two. Years.   There were times we kind of all despaired of Rusty ever finding a home. He was very active. [...]
