I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Kate survived on her own living in a large wooded area. Well, not totally on her own. The guys at the auto shop that abutted the property fed her and did what they could, but they couldn't stop her from breeding. And boy, did she breed! After I rescued her third litter for a total of 23 puppies, I really felt like I needed to stop this cycle. My reluctance was do to the belief that she was feral, and feral dogs are usually euthanized. What to do? What to do! Well, I found a vet who agreed to spay her, no matter how feral she was!!! So I trapped her, only to realize she was not at all feral, just abandoned. Joy!
Needless to say, Kate had a bit of a recovery period, not just from being spayed, but from the trauma of having been abandoned and forced to make it on her own. But she is such a litter trooper, she pulled it all together and became the affectionate family dog that she had obviously once been. Imagine my distress when, after all that, she started having health problem with her back legs. We did acupuncture and aquatherapy, and she got a lot better. But unless someone really special comes along, I expect that I will probably just have until she dies because she is incontinent. Now, I know that there are special people, ones who will go the extra mile for that special pet, and it is my hope that Kate will be found ~ she deserves it!

We are a small boutique rescue in New Orleans. We not only re-home abandoned dogs, but we work to keep pets in their current homes through consultations and training. Don't give up your dog without give us a chance to help you keep it!
We set up private meets by appointment seven days a week. We also hold adoption events on the third Saturday of each month at Petcetera on Magazine Street in uptown New Orleans.
Our goal is to match the right dog with the right person. If you are interested in meeting one of our pets, please e-mail us and we will send an adoption application. A phone interview will follow and then we will set up a meet. All adoption fees are applied to the care and upkeep of our rescue dogs.
