Gordon's Story

Gordon's Story

Why did you decide to rescue? I've had a heart for rescues since I was young.  My first rescue was a neighborhood stray cat.  Watching a rescue go from a neglected, unloved creature, to a happy, spoiled, loving member of the family...it's priceless. Please tell us your story with rescuing.   One day, someone shared Gordon's ad on Facebook, and his sweet face got my attention so I started reading.  Gordon was a stray living on the streets in Taiwan.

Banjo, Shep, Big, & Jag's Rescue Stories

Why did you decide to rescue? I've only ever known to adopt from shelters or rescue groups. As long as I can remember our dogs have always been rescued. Please tell us your story with rescuing. We currently have 4 rescues. I adopted the first, Banjo, when I moved to Alabama for college. He came from a local kill shelter where he was a long time resident because he was an adult hound dog with no house training. He's been my best friend, my running partner, and my mentor for new dogs ever since. Shep, our blind beagle, came along a...
