• Bailey

    Bailey.jpgWe got Bailey when she was just five months old. She will be two years old this August. Time sure flies, especially when you have as much fun as this fur-ball does. She shows so much joy in everything she does and can bring a nearly instant smile to me. She loves grass and would be happy to roll around in it all day when she is not in the water. She loves to play with our other dog Manny and she has been a great extension to our family. We are very glad that she is ours. Thank you hart!

  • Muffin and Inky

    Inky-and-Muffin.jpgWe have two dogs, both of them adopted through hart. Muffin is two and a half years old and a lab/border collie cross. Inky is two years old and a lab/husky cross. When Inky was a puppy, she was small enough to walk under Muffin. Now Inky is twice the size of her "big sister." The girls are inseparable. They love spending time outside, running, playing fetch, and being with the family. In the last two years, they have brought us great joy and a house full of muddy footprints!

  • Ellie

    Ellie.jpgWe adopted Ellie from hart in July of 2009 when she was three months old. We could not have chosen a gentler or more loving dog than Ellie. The only problem now is that she loves to be a lap dog… at 65 lbs! That is more than a lapful! She is bright and really smart. I sometimes feel a little foolish being outsmarted by my dog. When she does, I'm sure she grins and does the Ralph Wiggans laugh (Ha Ha). Ellie is part husky so has a really heavy undercoat and in the heat, she sheds heavily; beware of wearing black clothing! She makes our house into a happy home and makes beautiful nose art on the patio doors to make sure that we don't walk into a closed door! Thank-you hart for saving our lovely little girl!

  • Charly

    charly.jpgI just wanted to update you on my two wonderful years with Charly. She's been a great addition to my family. My other dog, Lucy, loves her. Charly is great as a protector and buddy. She loves her walks, socializing with other canine friends, and is very loyal to her family. Thanks hart for what you do, because without you, Charly never would have been part of my family!

  • Shadow

    Shadow.jpgI just wanted to give you an update on our rescue Shadow (formerly Sasha). We adopted Shadow about six years ago and she instantly became part of the family. We had to work with her a bit as she was aggressive towards new people and especially towards new dogs. She would also "bury" food in the couches until she realized that she would be getting regular meals.

    She settled in after a few months and even gets along with strange dogs now. Shadow has been such a wonderful addition to our family, and she sings to us every day when we come home! Thanks hart, for allowing us to adopt Shadow. She means the world to us.

  • Charlie

    Charlie.jpgThis is Charlie (he is one of Susie's pups). Charlie gets together with his sister Gilly Bean for play dates. Susie was rescued and housed at a wonderful little location by Devon. Shortly after being rescued, she gave birth to the most amazing puppies.

  • Cooper

    Cooper.jpgHere is an update on Cooper (also known as Vince from the Motley Crew). I don't think I can ever thank hart enough for bringing Cooper into my family and my life. He's doing extremely well these days; he's a very social puppy with tons of "best friends" around the city, who he loves to play and run around with.

    He's become a very confident puppy: eating well and enjoying many daily walks, evening cuddles and being completely spoiled by his "Grandparents." He has even changed his "grammy" from being wary of dogs, into the biggest dog lover on the planet. Every time we visit there are new toys, leashes or treats courtesy of "Grammy." On his most recent vet visit he was pronounced "extremely healthy and happy" and had all the vets in the palm of his paw with his sweet demeanor and beautiful puppy eyes.

    Cooper and I are very excited to join friends and family in the hart Run for Rescues in August. We are team "Cooper's Troopers," and several of Cooper's best friends will be walking along with him!

  • Joe

    Joe.jpgWayne and Carol called asking if Laurel and I would foster a three-legged dog. They had rescued a collie cross named Joe with a badly broken hind leg that they were sure couldn't be saved. We took Echo, our one-year old border collie, over to meet Joe and the two dogs got along famously. Joe was even trying to play with his rear legs held together.

    Through the special efforts of Dr. Lloyd Abbey at General Veterinary Hospital, Joe's leg was saved. We started fostering Joe in late fall and knew right away that Joe had found his "furever" home. We adopted him in January 2007.

    Today Joe has become an integral part of our family pack. Joe has been a great companion and calming influence on Echo. He really loves his walks at off leash and around the neighborhood. And most of all he loves to be brushed.

    If you have room in your home and your heart, please foster or adopt a rescued animal from hart. It will add a wonderful new dimension to your life.
