Hi everyone. I have an update on Suri, now renamed Beatrix. She is recuperating from parvo, thankfully, and is now in her temporary foster home. However, there is still a huge bill at the vet's office, despite the wonderful donations we've received so far. Also, the temporary foster home can only hold her four to six weeks. This is plenty of time for her to shed the virus and be completely free of parvo and safe for other animals to be around. Beatrix is spayed, heartworm negative, likes other dogs, and shows no interest in cats. She was also treated for a severe case of demodex mange and there is a possibility some of her hair won't grow back. She needs to be an inside dog and does look adorable in her sweaters.
This little girl has been through so much. It's a miracle she's alive. She's small, approximately 30 lbs., the size of a small beagle. She is a young adult and extremely sweet.
Beatrix's (AKA Suri) Story: I am a volunteer at Manchester Animal Control in Manchester, GA. I saw this girl at the shelter with no hair (she has demodectic mange which is not contagious to people or other pets) and I was afraid she'd freeze to death. The shelter has no heat or air and it is getting so cold, especially if you don't have a nice fur coat to keep you warm and you're sleeping on cold concrete. Beatrix was finally pulled and taken to the vet where she broke with parvo, another devastating blow. However, she pulled through.
Please help make sure the rest of her life is spent making up for how horrible the first part was.

Beatrix needs a foster home for after she is completely over parvo and no longer contagious. Her current foster home can hold her for 4 to 6 weeks but that is all and she has nowhere to go.

12/27/07-Beatrix is doing great! Her hair is coming back already and she is house/cratetrained. She likes other dogs and cats and gets along with her foster mom's niece and nephew. She still needs a new home. Please consider making this baby your own. She's spayed, vaccinated, heartworm negative, and looking for her new family.

Please consider helping her by making a donation for her vet care. Email for information on donating to her vet care.

A donation would make a wonderful gift to the person that loves pets and has everything.

Located in rural Georgia in a town of approximately 4900 people and with limited kennel space, the dogs have a very limited time that they are available for adoption.

Gone But Not Forgotten

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of one of our previous shelter dogs. Caoimhe, AKA Lady, was a neglected senior black lab that was rescued in the nick of time in November 2004. Caoimhe went to live with a wonderful lady in North Carolina. Unfortunately, due to years of neglect, Caoimhe became very ill. After a long, expensive battle, Caoimhe was helped along to the rainbow bridge. She will never know anything but peace and happiness now. I am thankful that there are people out there like Caoimhe's mom who are willing to love and adore these elderly castaways and show them that the world is not always a cruel place.
