SARAH is only 5 years old, spade, current on shots, and housebroken! S.P.A. took her in to keep her from being taken to the dog pound. The family she lived with originally lost their home and couldn't take Sarah with them to their new living quarters, so she had to be left behind. They went over to care for her each day, but couldn't continue to provide care for her. No one else was able to help Sarah, so S.P.A. and a WONDERFUL foster home in Tiffin did! Both Sarah and a little beagle named Lucky are in urgent need of forever homes. Lucky's story follows Sarah's.

S.P.A. Offering $500 Reward!

All three puppies found fantastic forever homes!

Gordon was adopted by the puppies foster mom and a family from Clyde, Ohio adopted the other two brothers, Guiseppe and Grayson.

All are doing very well!

PHOTO GALLERY UPDATED WITH THE BROTHERS VET VISIT! Click on 'read more' below!

ORIGINAL BRIEF...

Can't look at these photos without smiling. They are going to a wonderful foster home this afternoon! We are currently accepting applications for adoption of Guiseppe, and Grayson. The foster mom has decided to adopt Gordon.

To think someone could have dumped these three special boys beside a country road is disturbing. People like that are void of compassion. People like that frighten me.

S.P.A. is offering a $500 Reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual(s) who dumped these three 12 week old puppies.

Society for the Protection of Animals, Inc. (S.P.A) received a telephone call from a couple who reside on C.R. 50 outside of Helena. They were very concerned and upset because they found three puppies huddled together in the snow up next to their shed.

When they tried to approach the puppies they ran into a neighbor's field. "They were confused and afraid," the man said. CLICK "READ MORE" below!

S.P.A. Volunteers Teach Jewels to Trust Again! UPDATE! JEWEL'S HAPPY ENDING (OR SHOULD WE SAY BEGINNING!)

UPDATE: JEWELS HAS BEEN ADOPTED BY A VERY SPECIAL COUPLE FROM CLYDE, OHIO! She's found the forever love she was hoping for! Jewels is taking dog training classes with Buchele's K-9 Service, LLC, and is earning A+'s at each session. She is thankful that SPA saw her at the pound and recognized the "jewel" that was there in her heart. A real diamond in the rough. She seemed unadoptable because she was unapproachable. She snarled and growled whenever anyone came near to her... but when SPA members looked deeply into Jewel's eyes, they saw the dog they knew she would soon become. Her new family wouldn't take a million dollars for her! IMAGINE THAT! She was appropriately named by the dog pound when she was collected as a stray on from the streets of downtown Fremont, skinny and scavenging for food, after having recently given birth to puppies. Her puppies were not taken to the dog pound with Jewels because their whereabouts were unknown, but it appeared that they were still nursing as indicated from her breasts. S.P.A. IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE... JUST ASK JEWELS!

Jewels was at the pound and hid in the back of her cage. When someone approaced her, she growled and barked.

Jewels has responded well to walks in the park, hugs, and treats. All she needed and wanted was a little love... she is now wagging, giving frequent kisses, and has stopped blinking and pulling away from us when we reach our hand out to pet her.

CLICK 'READ MORE' just below this paragraph to view her wonderful updated photos! To read Jewel's original story, scroll down to: "JEWELS NEEDS A SPECIAL FAMILY TO LOVE!"

Another Amazing Adoption!

Rocky was adopted to a couple in Toledo in 2006, when he was only six weeks old. If, after an animal is adopted from S.P.A., they must be given up for any reason at any time in the future, S.P.A. welcomes them back with open arms becasue we feel that their future is our responsibility and we make a pledge to each animal we rescue that we will protect them for the rest of their lives.

Well, after seven years Rocky was returned due to divorce and relocation, and as you might imagine, he was traumatized from the change.

Rocky hid when introduced to S.P.A.'s cat shelter, and I am sure he wondered why his world had beed turned upside down.

I assured him that another special family was out there somewhere, and immeditaly began searching for someone who could give Rocky the love he was hoping for.

And soon, Rocky's dreams came true... thanks to an extra-special couple, Ken and Marlene Olsen, who had recently lost their much-loved feline, Punk'n.

Thanks Ken and Marlene for giving this sweet boy the extra special home he's been waiting for! I mean...just how lucky can a boy kitty get?

It's never easy to adopt out 13 year old dogs. So I suppose most rescue's immediate response of, "We don't have room... We don't have any foster homes available... We don't have room for seniors," is somewhat expected. But S.P.A. couldn't turn our backs on Shonna and Zoopie.
