Koda’s Success Fund

July 29, 2014

Marina 4x6I know I’ve been MIA, it’s been an intense six months. I miss my Petey Boy, and hold on to the fact that we gave him a great life after such a rough start. As a reminder, we didn’t lose him to IMHA, so if your fur kid is battling, there is hope. It’s a challenging road but a long happy life is possible.

This post is to help out Koda’s Mom. I’ve been there and know how helpless IMHA makes you feel. It’s a roller-coaster, but knowing that there are success stories, help us get through a lot. Whether it’s through donation, sharing her link, or offering support and success stories, I know your help will be appreciated.

Marina is adjusting to being single, and is letting her playful side show again. She’s enjoying the extra attention and even tolerates me brushing her endlessly shedding coat.


Wishing you all Success Stories.

The Birth of Dog Rescue Success

by Denise June 30, 2012

I’ve always been an animal lover, but it was Petey who inpired the creation of Dog Rescue Success, and our July 23rd Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescue campaign. I’ve always had rescue companions in my life.  When we adopted Petey, his history really tugged at my heart. He was a sweet, good-tempered guy who had been turned into […]

Older Dogs

by Denise May 1, 2012

“Older Dogs” are such a wonderful fit for so many people, I think of them as hidden gems. Both of our rescues are now considered to be “older”. Marina came into our lives when she was one and a half years old. She was still in a “puppy stage” which meant lots of chewing, digging, […]
