Cole (approx. 12 yo) joined The Pack in December 2018 - just days before Santa's arrival. Cole is deaf with extremely limited sight. He arrived in pretty sad shape and in desperate need of a dental cleaning. Cole also suffers from a pretty serious case of allergies which negatively affects his skin and ears. Despite all of this, Cole has a great personality and enjoys following the chickens living on the property too.
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!
Sherman (est. 11 yo) joined the Pack in late August 2020. Brought to our local county shelter as a stray - Sherman was deemed terminal and a rescue plea was sent out. With 56 minutes left in his final plea and no interest from any other rescue, Golden Ears welcomed Sherman into our Sanctuary. From the moment he arrived, Sherman has been pure sunshine. With the best personality and goofiest walk -
Sherman is a fan favorite!
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.
Toby James (11 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!
Rusty Wendell (12 yo) joined The Pack in December 2020. Found as a stray behind a local Wendy's restaurant, Rusty enjoys the good life being catered to by my parents. He wants for NOTHING!
For a little guy, Rusty is in fairly good health. He only needs some medication to keep his tummy calm before meals.
Zoe Zo (14 yo) joined The Pack in April 2021. This frosty-faced beauty was surrendered to the county shelter by her owner beacuse she began going "potty" on the floor at night. How tragic!
Zoe is also living with my parents and, with doggie door access, she happily goes in and out to do her "business."
Zoe is being monitored for a heart condition which is currently preventing us from having a much needed dental performed. Treatment is going well and we hope to be able to get the dental done soon.
Frida Ann (est. 13 yo) joined The Pack the very same day as Zoe Zo. Frida arrived traumatized. Her owner had unexpectedly passed away and Frida found herself (and her kitty companion) left at the local county shelter.
Frida does suffer from congestive heart failure. She is a very timid little lady and we are giving her the space she needs get comfortable being with us.
As we understand, Frida's kitty friend was also adopted from the county shelter.
Ollie Mac (est. 11 yo) arrived at the Sanctuary in May 2021. Found dumped over the backyard fence of a home near our home. Registered as a stray with the county, no owner came forward and Ollie Mac was released to our sanctuary.
Ollie is a very friendly little guy and, despite how he arrived, is quite healthy. Understanding Ollie was adoptable - we patiently waited for the right family to come along to adopt Ollie and they did! In November 2021, Ollie Mac was adopted and now lives in The Villages! He will always be an honorary member of our Pack!
Meet Gracie Dell! Estimated to be 10 years old, Gracie was found as a stray in South Tampa. Gracie is very well-mannered and pretty chunky but when her owner never showed up (she didn't have a chip) a rescue plea was sent out. After one week of no rescue commitment, a final plea was sent giving Gracie just five more days before being euthanized. That's when we stepped in. Gracie is special, gets along with every one in the house and LOVES her treats! Testing does confirm Gracie have mast cell tumors over various parts of her body - all are being closely monitored.

Rowan (est 12 yo) joined the Pack in October 2021 as a hospice case. When authorities were called, Rowan was found with 21 other dogs – having spent her entire life chained to a stake in the ground with no shelter and minimal necessities. She is severely arthritic, her teeth were awful but most concerning were the rotting masses found in several places over her body.
After a bit of care, a visit to our vet confirmed Rowan was healthy enough to endure the mass removal surgery. In December 2021, the now necrotic masses were successfully removed from Rowan’s body. This beautiful hound now enjoys spending her days napping and when she’s awake…she’s enjoys getting into trouble!
Baby (a younger senior) joined The Pack in October 2021. Baby was the housemate to now Pack Angel, Nicky. This little low ridin’ beauty quickly adjusted to the house. Seen by our vet, Baby had a dental immediately scheduled resulting in a quite a few extractions. Since her arrival, Baby has lost weight and now enjoys wandering the house and property looking for trouble.
Dutton (est. 13 yo) arrived at the Sanctuary in November 2021. Found as a stray, Dutton had urine burns on his belly from the urine soaked diaper he was found in. Named after his Momma’s favorite television show, Yellowstone, Dutton is FEARLESS! This little guy’s medical conditions include a heart murmur, a knee that pop out with every step he takes and he’s missing an eye. His pain is carefully managed but despite all of this – Dutton is a delight to have in our Pack!
