Story
This is Waffles!  Waffles was found by a good samaritan who wasn't able to find her a home. Waffles was kept safe in boarding all summer but it wasn't the right environment for her. An employee took her home and immediately noticed the positive difference in Waffle. She is a very smart, loving young dog, about a year old. She is very athletic, has a lean muscular body and the softest fur. She loves people and dogs. She is prospering in her foster home where she has dogs to match her energy and a foster family that are teaching her how to be part of a family. She isn't super kean on her kennel but is learning that it is a safe place to hang out. She likes chewing on bones and playing with toys. She has been nicknamed "Door stop" because she is always beside you when you leave a room (a behavior that she is working on). She loves to hold down the couch and if given the opportunity will gladly keep you company in bed. She redirects easily and wants to be a good girl. She is not food or toy aggressive. She has the makings to be a great family dog or outdoor partner for an active person. She just needs the right person to continue her training and development. Waffles has been spayed, is current on her vaccinations and microchipped.  Her adoption fee is $550    and includes her transportation to her new home in CT.  SHE IS IN A LOVING FOSTER HOME IN MEMPHIS, TN AND WILL BE TRANSPORTED TO HER NEW HOME ONCE ADOPTED!  New Beginnings Animal Rescue uses  a licensed and registered USDA transport company.      If you would like to apply to adopt Waffles, please fill out our online application here:  http://www.newbeginningsanimalrescue.net.  Any questions, please email us at:  newbeginnigs_animalrescue@yahoo.com.   THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING ADOPTING A RESCUED PET!

Story
*EXPERIENCED ADOPTERS* Meet Biggie! Biggie is a very special boy who has had a rough past and is looking for an extra special person to enter his life. ***Warning: Biggie’s story does include heartbreaking and graphic descriptions. In December of 2022 someone called to report a large stray dog. Due to the size of the pup, the organization who received the call sent not one, but two, men to "rescue" him. Both men used large catch poles to simultaneously choke and drag the pup into their transport vehicle. The restraints were so tightly wrapped around his neck that his eyes became bloodshot. Once inside the vehicle, he was brought to a veterinary facility for holding. While you'd think that's where the horrors ended, it was only the beginning. The room where he was placed after being brought in from the streets is where he sat, isolated and terrified, for over 30 days. A majority of Staff were afraid to handle him due to his size, instead they herded him around with a large bed. Unfortunately, this only scared him more. The only happiness this poor guy had was the occasional "Biggie Bag" from Wendy's that was snuck to him. This lifestyle wasn't sustainable, and that was apparent. In January of this year, staff reached out to us for help. After hearing this guy's story we couldn't say no. He came to our facility and after feasting on hamburgers and french fries for the past month, the only name that seemed fitting for our man was "Biggie". Our poor guy had a really rough start. After experiencing so much trauma, Biggie was a very terrified dog. Things such as sudden movements and loud noises really scared him. Slowly, Biggie began trusting a few members of our team. It started with feeding him cheese whiz and treats through a gate and gradually grew to taking him on walks and field trips. We learned Biggie loved ponds and running water. For the first time, we got to see him relax and truly enjoy being a dog. Over the past month, the progress we have seen is nothing short of remarkable. Biggie is comfortable with the majority of our team and even a few volunteers. He is playing with stuffies, rolling over for belly rubs, and even giving kisses! He really is our miracle boy. Now, almost 9 months after he was found alone and abandoned, we are proud to announce Biggie is available for adoption. Due to his size and background, he will need an experienced adopter without young children. Biggie has done well with other dogs, although they would need to be introduced during this process. We know this sounds intimidating, but after months with Biggie Boy, we think he is going to make an amazing dog. He just needs to find his place. If you would like to have a meet with our special boy, please contact us.

Story
Meet Moxie! This adorable girl was found as a stray by the local shelter. Due to overcrowding and the severity of her medical conditions, she didn’t have much time. Moxie is clearly incredibly emaciated. If that wasn’t bad enough, she has some pretty horrendous pressure sores. These ailments are likely a result of being left in a crate for an extended period of time, likely without food or water. Despite taking on Olive (another intensive medical case) less than a week ago, we knew we had to help this sweet girl. The past few days we’ve been desperately searching for a foster. Thankfully, yesterday, our prayers were answered. We were contacted by an amazing new foster, willing to take on the care for Moxie. We aren’t lying when we say fostering saves lives! Last night our precious girl arrived at her new temporary home. She met her foster siblings and is doing great! Moxie has a long road ahead of her, but we can all take comfort in knowing she’ll never be treated like this EVER again. ****Moxie Update***** Moxie is looking great! She’s come a long way. From an emaciated pup with pressure sores, to a brave girl learning the ropes of her new life! Recently Moxie tried a new home, and due to no fault of her own, it didn’t work out. She’s looking for a foster home or home of her own! We don’t want her to have to stay at our shelter for long. Moxie is 3 years old and is good with other dogs and cats. She’s a little nervous here in her new environment, but she’s doing a good job trusting us to keep her safe! She loves to give kisses and does happy taps when she sees you coming. Please send us an email if you’re interested in Miss Moxie! She’s ready to make someone a great pup! petstophererescue@gmail.com

Story
You may recognize this handsome fellow from when he went viral last week! 😱 Clause was found as a stray and was being cared for by a local shelter. This boy does best in a home without other animals, and as a result was struggling to find a foster or adopter. He was running out of time. 😞 For days we (and many other organizations) shared his handsome face, pleading for someone to foster him. Time kept ticking, and we only had hours. 😰 Thanks to our amazing community, Clause got hundreds of shares across Facebook. Additionally, we were lucky enough to connect with Sweet Buffalo which allowed thousands more local animals lovers to see our cry for help. 🙏 With less than an hour to spare we finally found a family willing to foster our boy. They were willing to drive all the way from Buffalo to save our sweet Clause! It was our very own holiday miracle! 🎄♥️ Now, our boy is finally enjoying the life he has always deserved. After a little more pampering, and an appointment with our vet, Clause will be on the hunt for his forever home!
