Amber - CSTR Refuge's Story...

Amber came to Crossroads in February of 2010 after surviving 6 years in a Missouri puppy mill. The emotional damage that she suffered has rendered her unadoptable. Amber is terrified of human interaction, she hides and shakes uncontrollably even when she makes eye contact with humans. Her past life of abuse at the mill was horrific and she prefers to spend her time with her foster siblings, she feels safest around larger dogs. Amber is healthy but a very, very timid girl, and is being worked with very gently by her foster mom as she teaches her how to accept love and attention.

Amber will spend the remainder of her time in the CSTR Refuge program until she overcomes her fears and recovers from the emotional damage she has endured.

CSTR's 'Refuge' program is for dogs who come into our program and are either temporarily or permanently unable to be placed in the adoption program. As a result, an adoption fee may never be collected for these dogs, yet their veterinary costs continue for the remainder of their time in our program. To make a donation to help with the care of these dogs, please visit our web site at http://crossroadsrescue.org
