Sorry I couldn't write more earlier I was at work and only had a few minutes to spare ;-).
We take in hard to place dogs.
We take in dogs other rescues would put to sleep. For example Kasha a german shepherd that lived on a chain in a breeding facilty. German Shepherd rescue would not take her in because she had issues that would require them to put her to sleep. She was considered dog aggressive because she attacked dogs that got near her when she was chained with puppies.
We also take in dogs that huge shelters with abundant funding would put to sleep. Example would be Wallace a chow that was skin and bones, had a fungus skin infection, a broken hip bone, and had been living wild on the streets for at least 6 months before being captured in a dog trap. We took Wallace in and he's had his surgery, got a beautiful coat…and is extremely loving now. A lady who brings her dog into my work saw him I brought him in to sit in the office with us and fell in love...she is working on finding him a home with a friend of hers who's 13 year old dog passed away recently.
And we will hold onto dogs until a home is found...we had Dodger for almost 2 years before he was adopted into his perfect home. Dodger was left behind when his owners moved out. The landlords found him 3 days later hiding in the bathroom. He wouldn't let anyone touch him(growled). The landlords knew if they contacted the animal control he would be put to sleep...so they contacted us and we went armed with mc donalds hamburgers, leashes, and a brush. With a little coaxing I was able to loop a leash around and then sit down and brush him. He calmed down and was ok...ate a hamburger and wagged his tail. He was a great dog and lived in his home for 2 years before he died of cancer.
We can not afford to do this without donations. Especially when we have an emergency surgery such as this.
If you want to adopt either Fannie or Zareefa please fill out an application. Zareefa is currently boarding at my work. She is playing with other dogs and meeting other people daily. If you live in the Kansas City area you can meet her in person.
