My story

Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet.

Posted 8/23/15, and pictures taken 8/4/15.  The owner died on 6/26/15 in Ben Wheeler, TX.  The mother was a Blue Heeler.  While we had the dogs at the man's house posted for the family to try to find homes for them, someone let the gate open to the dog pen, letting her mother and three siblings out, and her mother and one sibling were killed by something or someone.  Rhea was the third one that was missing, but she was found on 7/17/15, and reunited with her sister Rayna.  She can dig under a fence if she wants to, so she will need to be in a secure yard, or crated when gone.  She seems to be content with her sister here now, so she may do better getting adopted with her sister.  Rhea is more social with people than Rayna, but they are both very sweet and making very good progress with us.  They both come up to me, and loves treats.

D.O.B.:     ? 2009
Weight:     31.1 - 7/23/15

$25 adoption fee.

Go meet their pets

It depends on who has the pet. We don't advertise our address to keep people from dumping animals on our road anymore than they usually do, especially since this is also where we live. I like to visit with a person on the phone first before letting them come meet the pet.

More about this rescue

This is a small animal rescue for cats and dogs. I have several foster homes in various areas, and I also do courtesy postings for people who need help finding a home for their pet, which is about 80% successful. The pet doesn't have to enter a rescue or shelter and the owner is contacted, so they decide who their pet goes to. If a person can't send me pictures, and they don't live too far away, I will go and videotape the pet myself to place pictures on the internet, or have a volunteer get the pictures. There have been a few pets that haven't been able to find a home through this service, but it depends on what the pet is and who is looking on the internet. When we have space available we take transfers from a local kill animal shelter. We also step in and help people who find themselves with multiple animals and no way to pay to get them fixed. Usually I will get all the females fixed to get their circumstances under control, and in some cases I will also help with donated food when I have extra. If they want to find homes for some of the many pets they have accumulated, then I will place their pictures on the internet for them. We don't euthanize unless a pet is seriously ill.
