BITSY & ZELDA ADOPTED ON 03-26-16 – This is a rescue story that needs to be told, posting the adoption is not the story. The best way to start to tell Bitsy and Zelda’s story is to say, hold on to your heart. Rescue Dog Village is an observer and can only tell the story--it is a true American rescue story with all the elements of rescue angels and heroes who show up to save the day.
Bitsy and her friend Zelda were picked up in 17 degree weather in the sleet and ice from where they had been dumped as 6 week old puppies—equal to a baby under a year. They were nearly frozen and starved to death. The rescue angel, immediately rushed them to the vet and they were hospitalized until they were strong enough to come home—who paid for that?
For eighteen months their rescue angel—also known as a foster--has loved, fed, taken them to the vet, cleaned up after them and made sure every month they had the most important part of life, human compassion and love. Our angel never gave up on them, nope, she was NEVER going to see them left again, not matter how long it took. She wanted not just any home, she wanted the BEST home. Our southern rescue angel reached out to the observe and asked to help her place these sweet girls who have waited so long to have their chance at a great life.
Before we get to the ending, we want to tell you about sweet Bitsy. Bitsy is an 18 month old pretty yellow lab mix that has been waiting for a forever home, and as patient as she is, we just know she would be the happiest pup ever to have a warm bed and loving family to call her own. She is gentle good-natured and a fun spirited dog; she lives to bounce around, play tag and chase other dogs. She is a sweet low keyed girl, loves kids and all other humans, plays great, loves to wrestle and play chase. She is a fantastic walking partner or fireside companion—that is what our southern rescue angel tells us about her. She just needed her own family to love her----this is where the hero shows up.
Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined a more perfect life for Bitsy and Zelda. Enter our hero that fell in love with Bitsy and when she talked to her southern foster and heard the story – she could not walk away and leave Zelda behind. These are the untold stories of angels and heroes who open their homes, hearts and wallets to make sure that these sweet babies NEVER have another cold night. They want to guarantee that Bitsy and Zelda are warm, fed and well taken care of. Bitsy’s hero fell in love with her and could not leave Zelda – by the way, she is also called an adopter.
Rescue Dog Village – the observer – is compelled to tell their story because the foster and adopter would never want to take any credit or tell you who they are—because they do it because they are the best of the best and truly a dogs best friend.

About Our Rescue
These dogs deserve all of our attention, and in Rescue Dog Village, we are committed to our adopters and our dogs equally. We offer full disclosure and hope to make the best matches possible. Please know our adoption fees never cover our expenses. We rely on the generosity of our adopters and supporters to help us help the dogs.
Our rescue is ONLY in the business of offering FULL DISCLOSURE to adopters, and expects and hopes to engage your questions and concerns fully. We owe it to the dogs we rescue and all the wonderful families/adopters who might consider welcoming our charges into their hearts and home. Our dogs are waiting for that ideal forever home where they will be cherished as deserving family members. It's sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming, and not just MOVE them to save more dogs. We diligently and responsibly seek good matches as we don't want to re-home the dog again. These animals have already endured more than they should have, and through no fault of their own. It behooves us to be honest and forthright, and we appreciate the same in return from applicants. It's that winning combination of reciprocal trust and respect that allows for successful placements to be made. Happy adopters translate to happy dogs, and that's our goal!
Our rescue volunteers will be more than honored to be in touch with you directly and promptly, after receiving your application and conducting a mandatory a veterinarian check. If you have never owned a dog before, please submit your application regardless, and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. TAKE NOTE YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR SPAM AS SOME RESPONSES FROM US WIND UP THERE WE'VE DISCOVERED. Also, take care to contact your veterinarian to let them know a member of rescue will be inquiring about your pet history!
Thank you for respecting that we all donate our time to saving these animals, and understand we value your philanthropic and compassionate desire to help be part of the rescue team. That said, you'll understand why we are committed to the well-being of our charges and consider this veterinarian check mandatory. If you are a first-time dog owner, we will work with you every step of the way! ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION ARE AS MUCH A PART OF RESPONSIBLE RESCUE AS ADOPTION! And it takes a RESCUE VILLAGE to help the most dogs possible in a thorough manner to ensure success on all fronts, and then some! It is an awful feeling to fail a dog, and we can't continue rescue if we don't do everything we can to ensure good matches for the dogs and tender families who might adopt them. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family's eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting. Our very experienced and devoted trainer will be happy to share all aspects of OUR RESCUE DOGS to determine compatibility once you've submitted your application, and another of our volunteers will explain the whole process of our rescue and answer any questions you might have as well
