To Err Is Human

My dog loves me. No, he really, really loves me. I am his person. He likes Gary quite a bit. And Gary has been good about walking Coconut since I started spending each morning at the computer writing pithy articles and writing dog bios. But given his druthers, which is a really odd word, Coconut [...]

An Unexpected Delight

Last month we hosted our first annual Wine and Wags Dog-Friendly Wine Tasting and Fundraising Event at Rushford Meadery and Winery in Omro. At the time we decided not to make it an adoption event because there was so much else going on that day. Silly us! Who can resist the lure of puppies! Hannah [...]

National Pet ID Week

April 14–20: National Pet ID Week! Today is the kickoff for National Pet ID Week. The numbers vary depending upon the study, but in America, over ten million pets go missing or are stolen each year. Let that sink in. 10,000,000. It seems even worse when written out in number form. Coconut is a runner. [...]

From Bam to Bean

We love notes of appreciation from our wonderful adopters. Thank you for taking the time to thank us for just doing what we are called to do.

From Love to Health

Today’s PAWSitive Ending is different than most that we feature and we are excited to share this inspiring and wonderful story. When you birth or adopt a human child you never know if there are any underlying conditions your much-loved child will have. The same is true of a dog regardless of if it’s from [...]

Luckier Than Him

We talk about the dogs who never seemed to get asked out on a date to trot into the visitation room to meet someone one who falls in love with them, might ask them to go home. Kato and Korah But so often we have the belle of the ball with us and the picture [...]

Let’s Get a Second Dog!

I have the worst job in the world. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do and I sincerely love helping to find homes for our dogs. Building this community, planning and executing events, and writing grants seem to be what I was born to do. Maybe it’s growing up Catholic, but seeing dogs [...]

The Name Game

Contrary to what most people think I grew up in Kansas. We lived in a primarily African American neighborhood with a smattering of similarly poor and struggling faces of varying races.   I hated my name. Really hated it. I didn’t care about my brothers’ names because girls are different than boys and I didn’t [...]

Spring Fever

Until I got a dog spring fever meant baseball, my father’s favorite sport. He was a Kansas City Chiefs fan and never walked away from a pick-up or league game he didn’t love and usually won. To this day I hate baseball because of one too many days of sitting in the hard stands in [...]
