Update (3-6-17) Nola gets spayed on the 16th and then is ready for her forever home. She is teeny tiny and about half the size of her siblings. We do not think she will be very big at all and deserves a loving family to cuddle her and give her the best life after all she has been through.

Nola - PUPDATE (2/8/17) Nola is doing wonderfully! She is vet guessed at 8 weeks now and all filled out and so plump and cute. Nola loves to be cuddled and is 1 of the 3 smallest out of 7. She is shyer and more reserved but wants so badly to fall asleep in her person's arms. She is just a little doll. Nola deserves a forever home!

Jan 17 - Nola is the tiniest of all but she lets us know she's here! She has the biggest bark in that tiny body and holds her own at the food dish. This itty bitty little lady is so cute and one of 7 in her family and a total of 13 brought to rescue with no mothers. We know now that she is fighting off the parasitic worms that those bones will disappear and cute baby fat will cover them. We are guessing her at 4-6 weeks based on her teeth and her tiny body is busy ridding itself of parasitic worms so that she can get the nourishment she needs.

Please consider donating toward the Baker's Dozen Pups. They are going to need a lot of high quality puppy food, puppy pads, toys, shampoo, and once healthier, vaccinations and spay/neuter. We are expecting their care to be close to $2,000 just to get them healthy and every penny is a blessing and cherished gift. Donations can be made to PayPal at forbellessake.org or via our Amazon wishlist! All donations are tax deductible and FBS is 100% volunteer run meaning every penny given goes directly to the care of the animals in rescue. Thank you!


If interested in meeting and potentially adopting, please complete the adoption application located at forbellessake.org. Adoption fee is $175. They will be available for forever homes once 12 weeks old. All residents are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped as well as other medical needs cared for prior to adoption.
*Breeds and mature sizes are not guaranteed, but a “best guess”. We have no idea who the parents of these sweet souls are. A female can also have several males sire a litter so they could all have different breeds.
*A fenced yard is required if a yard is present. If no yard due to apartment/condo, leash law and access to a dog park is required for adoption*
*No resident is guaranteed housetraining as we focus on major behavioral and medical rehabilitation. Basic training is also a great way for an adopter to bond with their adopted family member. Additionally, a dog displaying housetrained behaviors in rescue can regress in a new environment and routine.

BELLE'S STORY
Belle, a dog rescued by Christian and Shelby, sits in the field where she was found in Sumter S.C., April 1, 2012. Belle suffered alone in the field for five days; she was malnourished and had open wounds and fire ants across her body before the family rescued her. She died hours after being rescued. In honor of her, the couple started “For Belle’s Sake Rescue and Rehabilitation,” an animal rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and pet watching service.


In honor of a particularly memorable rescue, a dog named Belle, Christian and Shelby started "For Belle's Sake Rescue and Rehabilitation," an animal rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and pet watching service. Belle was a pit bull mix, or pibble.

Belle passed away April 1, 2012, hours after being rescued. She died from complications resulting from maltreatment. When the Birds received a call to rescue her, she was in critical condition. They found her on the side of a road, malnourished, with open wounds and fire ants on her body. "We got a phone call in the late afternoon about a dog who had been hit by a car," Shelby explained. "A woman was at a stop sign, looked over into a grassy field and saw a head peering over the grass. So she walked out into the field and found Belle laying there."

"Belle couldn't stand and was surrounded by cans of dog food and chicken. She was covered in red ants, which had to have been very painful. We brought her home and set her up in a crate. When we carried her into the house, I flipped her over and her wounds were terrible," she continued. "We immediately called an EMT to come evaluate her since the nearest after hours vet clinic was in Columbia at the time. It was then that I named her Belle."

"She had two shattered back legs, a broken back, all of the skin and muscle was missing from her hind legs from road rash, and she was in organ failure," Shelby explained "We knew if we tried to save her, it would be a long and painful process and she more than likely would not survive it. She needed blood transfusions and both hind legs amputated. The EMT said she was in shock and her body was shutting down.""He said her wounds appeared to be at least five days old," Shelby said. "Meaning she suffered that duration alone in excruciating pain."

"Someone knew she was there because they were trying to feed her," she continued. "But no one helped.""The entire time he was evaluating her, her tail was wagging," she said. "I knelt before her, held out my hands, and asked a very simple question. 'Belle, what do you want?'"She rested her head in the palm of my hands and closed her eyes," she explained. "Her breathing got slow and she told me she was ready to go."
