Hi! I'm Lacey Conner, the "villain" from Vh1's "Rock of Love" and "Charm School". However, I am no villain to the animals! I started my organization (previously called "New Dawn Pet Rescue") a year-and-a-half ago. I am currently working on obtaining my 501c3 status. I rescue dogs (and, occassionally, cats) that are at the local city and county shelter and who are dangerously close to being euthanized at the shelter. Once I remove these animals from the shelter, they come home with me, which is where I foster them. If they are sick or injured (which is often the case), I get them the medical attention they need to heal. (Several dogs that I've pulled from the shelter even needed surgery.) Once the dog is feeling good, I adopt him/her into a loving "forever" home. Then I go back to the animal shelter and start the process all over again. Since I foster in my own home, I can only foster 4 or 5 animals at any given time. But to date, I've rescued and successfully rehomed over 50 animals, most of which otherwise would have been euthanized at the animal shelter.

Our Adoption Process:
If someone is interested in adopting one of our rescued dogs, first we will send the person a brief adoption application via e-mail. Once we receive the completed adoption application back from that person, and if it looks like a good match, then we would bring the dog to that person's house. That way, we can simultaneously do a home check, and have the person and the dog meet each other. If all goes well, then the adoption is complete upon the person signing a contract with us. The contract states that we have the right to check on the well-being of the dog for the rest of that dog's life, and it also states that the person may never give away or sell the dog (if they no longer wish to own the dog, they MUST give the dog back to us.) Our adoption fees range from $150 to $300. (The majority of these fees help pay for vet bills for all the rescued dogs...we specialize in rescuing sick and injured animals from the pound.)
