CHECK OUT SWEET WILLIE NOW!



*GREAT NEWS! WILLIE IS GOING TO HIS FOREVER HOME NOVEMBER 9th! WE WILL POST PICTURES IN HIS NEW HOME SOON!

It's hard to believe that Willie looked like this 3 months ago and is this gorgeous now! This is why we do "rescue". Without dedicated foster homes/volunteers and sponsors, dogs like Willie would have no chance. Willie is one incredibly lucky dog to have been found by a good samaritan and then dropped off at the Animal Emergency Center when our wonderful vet happened to be working. Doc saw the potential in this boy and literally saved him from being put to sleep by calling PAWS of Marion.




Willie is still hoping for a place to call "home" so please spread the word. He promises to be a fantastic companion if you just give him a chance. Please call Allison at 901-240-9848 if you'd like to meet this special guy.




We would LOVE to continue to help dogs like Willie, but we are in dire need of support. Financial support has dwindled significantly due to the recession and we can no longer even pay our minimum payments. In addition, very few foster homes exist and the few families that are fostering are completely overwhelmed. If you would PLEASE consider donating even a small amount, we would certainly appreciate it. Our "material" wish list at this time includes: Igloo Dog houses (urgent), blankets, dog food (Purina, Pedigree or better quality), and stainless steel bowls (no tip or "puppy bowls" would be fabulous). A dream would be to find more temporary foster homes and groups to help with fundraising!



Thank you to all of our current sponsors who have literally saved so many precious lives. We are humbled by your generosity in this difficult time.

Wow - what a handsome dog Willie is! He indeed will make a wonderful pet for someone. Just look at that curious face, listening hound ears :) and attentive body language. You guys know how to care for dogs! Scout, LB and Oxford are all well - except for the rain, of course.
