Help Seleen find her new home

seleen

We received a call yesterday from a veteran referred to us by the Fort Carson Army AW2 Wounded Warrior Program, who is no longer able to care for Seleen, the beautiful dog pictured here. While we don't normally get involved in rehoming pets for individuals, if called upon we'll always try help out in some way. Seleen (just like the Mustang!) is a sweet, well-trained, eight year-old pit bull. She's up to date on all of her shots and currently lives in Pueblo, Colorado. Someone in her community is willing and able to give Seleen her forever home, where she can live out her remaining years … [Read more...]

Our first rescue!

Well, ok - not the kind we set out to make, but any time we can save an animal from an uncertain or unwanted fate, it's a good day. Driving back to Pets HQ I spotted a greyhound trotting (ok, more like galloping) across a busy, six-way intersection. Ok, I thought, this can't be good. The dog had a collar and tags - not to mention a spiffy bandana - and I made the very first legal U-turn. … [Read more...]

Have Faith, will prevail

Faith

Thanks to Dan, a leading member of our legal team, for bringing this great story to our attention. It's about a two-legged dog, rejected and abused by its mother, that was given a new lease on life by a loving military family. The dog, appropriately named Faith, has become something of a celebrity at military bases and hospitals around the country. She's learned to walk upright and does many of the things that any four-legged bowser can do. Most of all, she's an inspiration to people who grapple with injury, infirmity and disability of their own - and shows how a little Faith can go a long … [Read more...]
