A Forever Home Rescue Foundation
Finding forever home for dogs in need
Welcome to What's New!
Welcome to the first step in our multi-step journey to an improved
online experience! This first step provides a significant visual upgrade.
There will be more improvements as we go along – look forward to
an online fillable adoption application (not in phase one, but it’s coming!)
While you’re here, take a look around and let us know what you think –
and any ideas you have for what else we need to add!
Gwen lost her owner who tragically drowned. She was left to birth her pups in a dog house during a deep freeze. Gwen and her surviving pups are safely in foster care. Gwen is a beautiful girl who wants nothing more than to love and be loved. She is just patiently waiting to find her forever family so she can start her journey to a wonderful life that she so deserves.
Rango is a cute little Hound mix with a tragic story. He was found in rural Mississippi with a painful steel leghold trap clamped on one of his feet. A sheriff was driving down a country road and saw Rango dragging himself toward the road. There is no telling how long this poor boy suffered. Because his foot and leg were badly infected, Rango’s leg had to be removed, but now he is doing amazingly well. Having only three legs doesn’t slow him down one bit! His will to live really shines through. Now he just needs a forever family.
Look Who Went Home!
Lucy (Monica’s Belle)
Hi, We adopted Monica’s Belle in November. She now goes by Lucy and has settled into our home and our hearts very well! We graduated from Puppy Kindergarten class this evening and thought we would share a photo of the goodest girl 😉. Thank you for all the care you guys gave her. I know she had a wonderful foster Mom in Tricia (who I believe went on to adopt Lucy’s brother Thor). The strong start she got in her foster home has gone a long way in making her a success.
Here is our next intallment of Forever Tails. In this issue we annonce our next Casino Night. We also Highlight some of our special needs dogs: Lucky, Baby Girl, Pentunia and available dogs Rango and Walkter. Our volunteer spotlight falls on Virginia Colin and Lynette Catlett. We also have an article on why dogs eat their poop! We remember Blitz, Rover, Benny, Roxy and Abby. We also have sweet stories on Reading is Fundamental with Winter and Moe the Therapy dog. Finally, there Save the Environment and Save a Dog. Read all of this here: 2023MayNewsletterWeb.
