My story

Please contact Tonya Griffith ( for more information about this pet.

Posted on 10/14/21, and the pictures were taken on 10/13/21.  TINSLEY MUST BE ADOPTED WITH HER MOM TEYLA SINCE THEY ARE BONDED.

Teyla and Tinsley were found on the side of CR 346 in Whitehouse, TX on 7/20/21.  Teyla had a broken leg.  I picked them up from the person that found them on 7/21/21, took Teyla to the Gresham Veterinary Hospital, and surgery was done on 7/22/21.  She had a broken right femur, right hip fractured, and her pelvis was broke, but not displaced.  We raised the donations needed for her surgery.  She has wires and a plate on her right femur.  On 10/6/21, her x-ray showed that the bones were starting to calcify.  Teyla was cleared by the veterinarian on 11/3/21 to be available for adoption.  They both have high energy, so they will need a large secure fenced yard to work off that energy every day.  They are very sweet, both have sky blue eyes, and play well with other dogs.

Tinsley was spayed on 8/16/21 weighing 23 pounds, and tested negative for heartworms.  Teyla is positive for heartworms, and she is on Ivermectin for slow kill.  We estimate that Tinsley was born around August 2020.

Adoption contracts must be signed upon adoption approval and any pet history information is provided with each adoption.

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.
