Patty was rescued by one of our volunteers just hours before she was scheduled to be euthanized. She was pregnant and delivered her babies just two days after being rescued. Her foster mom was lucky enough to witness the births. It didn’t take long for Parker, Punkin, Paige, and Piper to get adopted once they were old enough to leave. Unfortunately little Punkin was returned, because of his long fur. It took us a long time to find him just the right home, but he is a very happy and BIG boy now! Patty was with us for quite a while after her babies found their homes. She needed a home where she would be the only pet, but her lucky day finally came!
Buster was a long-time Homeless Pets member, but eventually he found his forever family! Not only is he feeling the love now, but he gives just as much back to his family! He even has a man cave to hang out in now! Just a reminder that there is a perfect match out there for everyone and how important it is to consider adopting a rescue!
Charlie’s new mom, Jennifer had these kind words:
“We adopted Charlie from you in October of last year, and I wanted to make sure that the people who knew Charlie through Homeless Pets all get to know how happy he is in our family.
He’s a very good boy, who still loves belly rubs, and is now in his second obedience class. He’s very smart and loves to play, sleep, and snuggle all day. We love him so much, and everybody we meet comments on what a handsome boy he is and love his tricks (he can sit, shake, lay down, and give high fives!).
He’s definitely a Southern dog, and loves his sweaters in the house, and won’t go outside without his coat if it’s colder than 40 degrees! But he loved the snow and had fun digging in it and eating it.
I’ve attached some pictures so you can see how much he’s grown and some of his antics. We have lots of videos of playtime, too. His New Hampshire grandparents can’t get enough of him, and he’s a big ham for the camera!
Thank you so much for finding him and bringing him into our home. He’s been a member of our family since the first day he walked in the door. ”
Chevy’s past is a mystery. He came into the Homeless Pets Foundation at 32lbs back in March…as a full grown boxer. To say the least, he was severely emaciated and needed nutrition! With some love from Homeless Pets and a great new family, he’s now a strong, healthy 75lbs of pure love 🙂
Chevy’s new mom, Kristi had these kind words:
“We work with rescues up here in Ontario by fostering as well, so we also appreciate every effort you make to save these dogs and give them a second chance in life. We work with Su every once in a while, so that is how I met my Chevy and it was love at first sight. He wiggled his way over to me and I told Su that second that he would be going home with us 🙂 We adopted our first guy from Su and we foster for her, so she just shook her head and handed me Chevy’s paperwork. We have now had Chevy since April 5th and I have loved every second with him.”
“We live in a small town about 2 hours north of Toronto, Ontario with a Mastiff/Boxer (another rescue dog), 2 cats, our 6 year old son and my husband and myself. Chevy is the perfect fit in our family and he has truly become my “baby” .. he is attached at my hip 🙂 He is the MOST affectionate dog I have EVER met and we really love him. He has the funniest personality too .. he is quite humerous and playful. Him and our other dog just love each other. They play play play all day long. Chevy’s also very sure of him self .. to say the least lol .. he sure does make us laugh. He is always making sure every foster dog knows that I am HIS mommy .. and HE is the boss .. LOL .. what a guy he is. Typical boxer .. that’s for sure.”
“We also wanted to send our thank you to anybody and everybody who helped Chevy along his way to his forever home, here in Canada with us. I couldn’t imagine our lives without my sweet Chevy .. so thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness and saving this sweet soul :)”

Joy stopped by the clinic on Tuesday evening after the Superbowl to pick up a dog that she had been fostering. However, the dog was adopted just before Joy arrived. In a way it was a good thing because she was told that there was a little dog that needed some special attention. He was in a cage and terrified, shivering and dirty.
Some of the walkers discovered him in a crate outside Town & Country Veterinary Clinic, up to his belly in water, freezing in January just a day or two after the Superbowl. They think he was there for a couple of days before anyone found him, and it had been a cold and rainy weekend. His little voice was still very hoarse, probably the result of trying to get attention for a long time before anyone heard him.
He was named Cody, and he was a survivor. Joy brought him home to foster and knew that as fragile as he was, it would be a long time before we went to adoptions, but that didn’t matter. Joy fell in love with him. It took a LONG time with lots of detangler to get him clean and free up his matted hair. He was so skinny you could feel all his bones. It took about 6 weeks of very intense love and affection from Joy, her friends and neighbors, and her dogs before they could snap him out of his foggy state. He would go limp and look away if you tried to hold him. The dogs tried to engage him in play and he would act like he didn’t even see them. SLOWLY he started to respond to the love and attention he was receiving.
Now he’s a happy playful Senior Citizen at about 10 years of age and going thru his second childhood now. He constantly plays with Joy’s dogs and loves everyone he meets.
