Help Us Help Charley! Adorable puppy that was hit by a car

Posted on

Charley is a 4 month old lab mix puppy that came into a high kill shelter a few days ago after being hit by a car. We do not know what is wrong with her, and she has not been seen by a vet. We are hoping to rescue her ASAP and get her to our veterinarian to diagnose her and do xrays. She can get up and go to the bathroom, but is in alot of pain and has a hard time trying to stand.

Please consider helping us with her, we are unsure what her medical bills will cost us, but thought she was an extra cute pup that deserved a chance. More videos to come!

Delaware County SPCA to the rescue!

Posted on Updated on

A BIG thank you to Delaware county spca in Media PA (“Delco”) for taking in some dogs, puppies and kitties we have had trouble placing. Since we have began working together they have helped us place our hardest dogs to adopt out and they all find wonderful homes within a few weeks at their facility! We couldn’t do it without all of our dedicated volunteers, shelter staff, fosters and drivers who all pitch in and help us care for the animals and organize trips! 40 more animals rescued today, on top of our large 65 Dog NSALA transport (pics to come)!

Update On Lucky- Our Neglect Issue Puppy that is healing!

Posted on Updated on

Lucky is doing GREAT! He is one smart cookie, he has discovered how to open just about any door in our house and insists on getting to hang out on our back porch vs. our designated laundry room we have for him. He is good off leash, already  potty trained (he hasn’t had one accident in the house), and he is a respectful boy who doesn’t chew on anything either. He just loves his meal times, play times with our dogs and getting lots of love and affection. He is so people oriented he is absolutely loving getting to be a part of our house!

He is starting on a special diet that is vegetable based that will help with his internal organs and to build his immune system. He is getting 3 medications 2x a day and ivermectin everyday. He is also getting medicated baths 2x a week and we are noticing his hair growing back in slowly but surely every day. We have had horse owners tell us to use a product called MTG that helps stimulate hair growth so we are discussing that with our vets. Now that Lucky is feeling better I can take him into to get his first set of puppy shots, rabies and bordatella.

Thanks to everyones dontations we were able to pay for his special shampoo and get him the dog food he needs, and get him up to date on shots, heartworm and flea prevention! We also need to get him neutered and microchipped when he feels up to it!

He is still sore when he walks with his paws but the swelling is going down slowly. We will continue updating everyone on Luckys progress and journey to finding his forever home :) Donations can be made towards Luckys care at

Posted on Updated on

A Big Thank you to Johnston County Animal Control in Smithfield NC for hosting our transport this week. 67 lucky dogs and puppies were rescued in NC and are on their way to finding their forever homes. We had dogs from Stokes, Wilkes, Caldwell, and Yadkin county, and had fosters in several more areas all working together. We have the best volunteers that helped us walk and take care of all the dogs in Boone in the rain, and Darwin k9s wonderful crew helped us at Mitchell Mill Animal Hospital from 10-1am to get everybody taken care of Tuesday evening! We also had dog walkers then showed up at 6am to help me on Wednesday before the mobile unit arrived in Smithfield!  Alexia took a time lapsed video of us taking care of the pups Tuesday evening we wanted to share. Thanks to everyone involved another successful transport! Our next trip is 10/20-10/22!
