UPDATE: NOVEMBER 17, 2016
On 11-7-16 I delivered 5 tiny babies and all except one who passed shortly after being born are doing exceptionally well. The other was so small that he simply was not able to survive and he was held and loved until the time for him to cross the Rainbow Bridge was there. His Mom did her best yet this tiny one simply was not meant for this world and has gone on to a better place. The other four are doing great and have a fantastic Mommy who does her best to assure that their every need is met! Soon their eyes will be opening and play time will begin. Right now they are eating, sleeping and eating some more. Mom is taking great care of them and resting up from her ordeal. We at SRC will see that they get everything necessary to assure they remain happy and healthy. Already been seen by our vet once they are doing well and we anticipate that they will continue to thrive. Applications will be accepted for their adoption yet they will not be removed from their Mother until they are fully ready to be weaned and have socialized with their siblings to assure that they are emotionally ready to separate also. Photo of the family is posted -- no one is named yet -- posted as puppy 1 - 4 at this point.
SRC#1829 CHEYENNE's Story
CHEYENNE with this unique identification number: (SRC#1829) came into their care recently and is being prepared for adoption by a foster family who have gone thru our approval process. She was terrified by her recent experience and thus far is hiding in her crate. Her foster dad has been able to get her to come out of her crate by offering crackers and bits of cheese which she absolutely loves! They are beginning to make friends and although Cheyenne has been traumatized SRC believes that she will make a wonderful companion in a calm atmosphere. More will be posted about her as she adjusts to her foster home. She really is a cutie and has a sweet personality. We at SRC just want her to have that loving home she deserves.
When ready for adoption this dog will be heart-worm tested, de-wormed, vaccinations brought up to date, neutered if not done already, micro-chipped, examined by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have been addressed. It is anticipated that this dog will be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of the Evaluation. The date of release of this dog is at the discretion of the SRC Core Team.
THIS DOG IS BEING FOSTERED IN MICRO, NC AND YOU SHOULD BE WILLING TO DRIVE TO THAT LOCATION IN ORDER TO PICK THE DOG UP THERE WHEN IT IS ADOPTED.

When ready for adoption this canine will have been evaluated for two weeks by loving SRC foster parents who will now be able to give the adoptive parents information as to their opinion about the demeanor of the adoptive parent's new family companion prior to the finalizing of this adoption. SRC volunteers strive to do all of this for the well-being of their rescued canine and for a successful. It is our worthy mission to assure that each dog goes to a loving and stable home whose family members will treat each rescued dog that SRC helps as a beloved member of their immediate family.
