Rocky (approx 14 yo) joined The Pack in November 2018 after being surrendered by his owners to the local shelter. This gentle giant's favorite thing is having the top of his tail scratched...all the time!
Cole (approx. 11 yo) joined The Pack in December 2018 - just days before Santa's arrival. Cole is deaf with limited sight. He arrived in pretty sad shape and in desperate need of a dental cleaning. Cole has a great personality and enjoys following the chickens living on the property too.
Sparky (15 yo) joined The Pack in March 2019 because his owner no longer wanted to care for him. Timid at first, Sparky did not want to leave his bed. With lots of love and encouragement, he now walks around the house and has a keen sense of hearing evidenced by his arrival in the kitchen when The Pack's meals are being made.
Annie Olivia (14 yo) arrived at the Sanctuary in October 2019. Her new Momma happened to be at the local county shelter the day Annie was surrendered and it was love at first sight! Once the stray hold was over, she was scooped up by her Momma and brought to her new home. While this beauty has some skin issues and has had a few too many litters of puppies, she has a beautiful personality and has proven to be extremely gentle, loyal and smart. It is wonderful to have her in the Pack where she can now enjoy her golden years!
Birdie Mae (est. 13 yo) joined the Pack in late October 2019. When her owner passed away, she was discovered in a hoarding situation with 25 other dogs. Birdie now thrives in a positive Pack environment and enjoys attempting to boss around the other dogs. Her favorite thing is to sit in her Momma's lap and nap!
Benson Maxwell (est. 13 yo) joined The Pack in January 2020. Found as a stray in horrible condition, this little guy has done very well at the Sanctuary. Benson does have an extensive eye condition which requires constant monitoring for pain and comfort but otherwise enjoys napping in his bed or following his Momma around the house.
Pepe (13 yo) arrived at the Sanctuary in February 2020 and was immediately accepted into The Pack. He enjoys napping and hanging with the flock. Pepe has mobility issues so he is closely monitored for comfort and positioning. He's best known for his barking as every Pack meal is prepared.
Gilly (10 yo) joined The Pack in April 2020. Gilly has mild congestive heart failure and mammary tumors we hope to have removed when her heart condition is stabilized. Gilly is never too far from her Momma's side. She is also a favorite with the Sanctuary visitors.
Molly (10 yo) joined The Pack in May 2019. While she is in generally good health, Molly suffered severe physical abuse and neglect at the hands of her original momma which resulted in her partial loss of sight and hearing. It took months for Molly to allow anyone to touch her without flinching. Because of this, Molly will remain at the Sanctuary to live out the remainder of her years at The Sanctuary where she has learned to trust her environment. Her favorite thing is running the property with the other dogs.
Toby James (10 yo) joined The Pack in August 2020 when he was surrendered to the local shelter because his owner was evicted. Toby's condition was tragic (emaciated, very weak and in desperate need of a dental). Since arriving, he receives three small meals a day to safely increase his weight. He enjoys snuggle time, wandering the property and has actually started wagging his tail with excitement! Every day, Toby's eyes are brighter and he becomes more engaged with his Momma and The Pack!
Sherman (estimated at 10 years old) had until 5 p.m. on Friday August 28, 2020 to secure rescue or he would be euthanized. With 56 minutes to live, we made a call to the shelter and invited Sherman into our Pack. Sherman has been the consummate Pack member and it is a privilege to have him with us. We are working hard to put weight on his frame and monitor his discomfort and pain level.
