Meet The Sisters! Our Version Of The Pointer Sisters!

Juicy(L), Gucci, Coco, Chanel
Cute, adorable, playful, goofy, sweet, don't begin to describe the four Pointer/Terrier sisters (Juicy, Gucci, Coco, Chanel) currently residing at Pet Adoption Fund.

When the plea to save their lives surfaced the internet, the volunteers of a high kill shelter, a remote county shelter in the heart of the desert, were optimistic that the sisters will undoubtedly be rescued by animal lovers in the no-kill rescue community and the plea will surely have a happy ending. After all, who would not want those happy little goofy faces!  But sadly that was not the case for these sisters. The shelter plea to save those precious four lives went unanswered. The clock was ticking. Their days were numbered.

But thanks to one very special volunteer at that shelter, always working around the clock to save lives, she reached out to Pet Adoption Fund, in hopes of saving at least two out of the four, and hoping for a miracle last minute public adoption for the remaining two.

As busy as we were and always are, we could not possibly ignore their plea, but how could we consider only two, when the lives of the other two remain in jeopardy? The answer was...No! We have to take all four...and we are so happy we did.  All four are currently housed together at our kennel, and are as happy and playful and sweet as they can be.  Juicy and Gucci are a bit timid, Chanel is the pack leader, and Coco is the assistant leader.

All four are altered now, vaccinated, chipped, and are ready for their new life journeys. They can be separated, if there is a doggy friend at the new home, otherwise they need to go in pairs, or we would consider one, if the new guardian is a home body. If interested, please call (818) 261-6974 or email adopt@petadoptionfund.org

Heartbreak to Hope: Second Chance For Success

“Why can’t I be taken out? Am I next? Can I be chosen, too? I want attention also!
 Don’t forget about me!” 

Whenever anyone walked by or entered the room, the German Shepherd puppy would begin her barking pleas. She often stood on her rear toes to make sure she was seen as well as heard. But if someone ventured closer, they’d see the “IN RECOVERY” sign on Mary Anne's kennel. They’d see a very friendly, but very thin young dog with barely a few patches of hair.
MARY ANNE TODAY
MARY ANNE BEFORE
This desperate girl was found abandoned with a horrible skin ailment. She was confused, in severe discomfort and required isolation to ensure quicker, complete healing. Mary Anne needed anti-parasitic medications, a strict yet optimistic food plan, as well as treatment to ease itching, inflammation or secondary skin infections. Waiting was the toughest part for a growing pup who just wanted to play and give or get some love.  

MARY ANNE AFTER

Immediate and continuous good care has made a notable difference. It's an amazing transformation! View her Before and After pictures here. Mary Anne is now at a healthy weight with a full coat, has favorite toys and shows lots of energy and curiosity during walks. People notice her natural sweetness and size. She has a black diamond mark on her forehead, plus one missing ear tip. However, this tale of woe has become a wagging tail — literally!
Sure enough, the biggest question at this point is: What lucky person or family will adopt her? Because without question, Mary Anne has recovered and is ready. — LK, volunteer
