My story

Herman and Sophia are a package deal. I think Herman would be fine without Sophia, but she clings to her brother. They are currently in the Louisville area. 

These 2 came from the trixie foundation, a terrible exploiter hoarder situation. They had to fight for resources and had zero vet care. The hoarder claimed Herman had cancer but he really had a protein issue with his kidneys that was causing his bloat and he was also a cryptorchid dog. He was treated successfully and is doing very well. He is a happy sweet boy. Both are cat safe.

Sophia can be a little iffy when meeting new dogs. She has been through so much in her life so it is understandable. She is perfectly fine with kitties. 

If you can offer these 2 a home, please reach out! They are UTD on vaccines, HW neg and on prevention. Sophia has dry eye disease and requires daily drops. It's a good thing we got her when we did or she would have gone blind.  

Randy Skaggs, the exploiter hoarder, took diversion for his crimes. It is a type of guilty plea. Just google the trixie foundation for more information.

More about this rescue

We are a small group of experienced rescuers/volunteers who decided to form a new rescue in honor of Teresa Mason, our friend and former president of another rescue, who died in January 2014. Some of our members have been involved in rescue for 10+ years. We are a KY non-profit organization and have federal 501(c)(3) non-profit status. We need foster homes for dogs in the Rowan & Bath County Kentucky areas as well as people who can assist with transporting dogs to the vet during weekdays. We are also seeking local volunteer help with photographing animals in nearby shelters.
