Nixi's Rescue Story

Nixi's Rescue Story

Why did you decide to rescue?   My family and I have always loved fostering and being involved with our local rescues, so it was no question that if we ever adopted another dog, it was going to be a rescue.   Please tell us your story with rescuing.    Nixi’s pregnant mother, Sugar, was pulled from a high kill shelter and we took her in as our foster dog. Sugar gave birth to nine puppies days after being rescued. Immediately, Nixi stood out to us. She was a gorgeous little tan puppy with the lightest coat in her litter...

Bear's Story

Bear's Story

Why did you decide to rescue? I had been longing for a dog to bring into my home, and knew that rescue / adoption was the way to go. I believe in adopting rescue pets, especially senior pets, as they are harder to place. I didn't have any other pets in my home and was ready. I had just moved into a new house in December, and heard Bear's story on the news in January. Please tell us your story with rescuing.  I heard of Bear's story on the local news channel, first.

Kurbis' Rescue Story

We both grew up with dogs that were adopted from shelters or from rescue programs, so we always knew we would adopt rather than buy a puppy. We actually expected to wait until spring to adopt a dog. We're both graduate students and work long hours, so we weren't sure if we were ready to be good pet owners yet. However, two Fridays ago we got a flyer in the mail about the senior dog adoption event in the...

Jack, Jill, and Rocky!

Jack, Jill, and Rocky!

Rockin Pets Foundation was notified of 3 siblings by a concerned bystander.  They lived, along with the rest of their colony, in an apartment parking lot.  They had to dodge cars all day and run back and forth on the hot summer asphalt - forgotten and neglected, along with the rest of the colony of cats, dumpster diving, and just trying to survive and get a meal.  These 3 were very sick with upper respiratory infections, eye infections, were dehydrated, covered in fleas, and were anemic.  Even though they were feral, we knew we couldn't leave them, they didn't stand a chance. ...
