Jewel's Story

Why did you decide to rescue? When I was little, my dad would always take me to the animal shelters to look at dogs. We eventually adopted a dog, and she was the sweetest thing ever. When she passed away, I didn't want another dog honestly. When I got married, my husband and I decided we wanted a dog. Every dog deserves a second chance. I had my heart set on adopting and he went a long with it. Please tell us your story with rescuing.  Once my husband and I got married, we wanted a dog right away. However,...

Hank's Story

Hank's Story

Why did you decide to rescue? I was living alone and felt like it was a good time in my life to have a furry companion.  My mom actively participates in animal rescue so I was well aware of the countless dogs that needed homes.  So for me, this was the only way to go. Please tell us your story with rescuing. I found Hank in a San Diego rescue facility.  He was sitting in his room with his wild hair and looking up at me so cutely.  He was so friendly and full of energy.  Hank loves everyone he...
