12 yr old Dachshund
Completely Blind

Very sweet female that was relinquished to live outside after she went blind.  The local shelter talked the family into surrendering her as they knew she would not make it through the winter months.  Volunteer at the shelter asked if we could take her and felt she had cataracts which could be remedied through surgery and sight restored.   We took her into our rescue and our vet feels she also has glaucoma and is doubtful that surgery will help with eyesight.  Prescribed two types of drops and we have made an appt with a specialist in Richmond, VA to see what, if anything can be done.  Her left eye is much worse that her right so we will be prepared should specialist want to remove the left eye.   The drops have worked wonders in just a couple of days in taking down the swelling of the eyes.

Cricket gets around with no problem, as most blind dogs are capable of, is crate trained and mostly potty trained.  


You can contact Pam Danford, 11613 Bundle Road, Chesterfield, VA  23838, cell phone # is 804-229-4043 and personal e-mail is or our rescue e-mail is  I am currently fostering her at the moment and can answer any questions someone may have.   An approved application will apply.

When we saw Jack on the sleep list at the New York City shelter he was a matted mess with flaming red eyes that desperately needed vet care. When he arrived we could see that his ocular disease was so horrible that one eye had scabs on it and he couldn’t even close it. He was in a great deal of pain.  His eyes could not be saved and once our veterinarian removed them, Jack was a new man. 

With the pain gone, he could be handled easily and  proved to be a happy, friendly fellow.  He has adapted to his blindness, but is a little nervous when approached to quickly. Once he knows he can trust you, he loves be held and cuddled. He is a mature, calm  boy who gets along with other friendly dogs. Because of all he has been through, he would do best with older children who can understand his sightlessness.

Our beautiful Bruno does not ask for much. A place to lay his head, someone to love, and a small amount of special care. He was left at our local shelter by his former owners.  He is 10 years old and 25 lbs. Bruno is diabetic and requires daily insulin injections. He currently takes 1.5 units of insulin twice per day after meals.  Bruno's foster mom feels that he has lost the majority of his vision at this time. Despite this, Bruno navigates the home and yard with success.  Bruno currently lives with dogs of all ages and sizes. He takes a bit of time to warm up to new dogs, but does well with them once he feels safe. He does not mind the company of cats. He also lives with a 7 year old child.  Bruno is a good boy who deserved more than to be left in his golden years in an overcrowded shelter. Do you have the love in your heart to make the rest of his years his best? Email for more information or an application to adopt!

Adoption fee of 100.00 includes up to date vaccinations, neuter, microchip and current heartworm prevention. We are located in Beckley,WV and have some transport assistance.

On November 14,2014 Saving The Animals Together was contacted by a woman who had accidentally hit a puppy with her car. She was broken hearted as she carried the pup to every house  on the road, hoping to find his owner so he could receive the life-saving care that he needed. Nobody claimed him, nor did anyone know where he had come from. 

When she asked us to help, we could not say no. The little pup was taken to the vet, with his vet bill to be covered by our rescue, while further efforts were made to find and reunite him with is owner. Unfortunately his owner was never found, and so he became what we like to call a #STATDawg.

We were relieved to find that he had no broken bones or internal damage. But the blow to his head had left him visually impaired. Our hopes, that as he grew the vision would improve, were not to be realized.

Frogger was placed in foster care where he grew and learned to live joyfully in spite of his limitation. He has no problem negotiating his way around the house and yard, once he gets his bearings.

Frogger eventually had to be moved to a new foster home, after a short stay in a boarding facility, because he began to act defensively when other dogs, especially larger dogs, startled him. Because he cannot always gauge if a growl is towards him, or a bark is an invitation to play or a challenge to fight, he stays on edge. 

A home with either no other dogs, or a carefully controlled canine pack, would be best for him. He is fine with children as long as they are taught not to approach him in a way that startles him. One must always be aware that he needs time to judge a situation since he cannot see body language. 

Frogger is housetrained, leash trained, crate trained, obedient and sweet. He loves to run and play, and snuggle and nap, like any other dog. He will be a fantastic companion and is ready to find his lifetime friend to love. -!frogger/c1sjq -

If your looking for a buddy to cuddle and hang out with then look no further.   Stevie may be blind but that doesn't hold him back from living a perfectly normal life.   

Stevie came to Tri County Animal Shelter as a stray and is approximately 1-1/2 years old, bulldog/boxer mix. He's neutered and UTD on shots.  Stevie does very well in his crate, with other dogs, cats and kids.    

Stevie needs some help with manners and leash training.   He does well in his foster home with housetraining but will need some guidance at his new home until he gets familiar with his surroundings, which took less than 2 days at his foster home.     

He's a very happy, eager to learn and please, cuddle buddy who loves to hang out with his human chewing his bone or napping on the couch.

Deaf Dogs
For information on living with a deaf dog, please visit Deaf Dog Education Action Fund.

Miley is about 9 months old ,We found her in the streets about 4 months ago

She is a loving sweet dog who is deaf. She knows commands with hand signals and needs a home with no other animals. We are sad to have to find her a new home but our other dog does not get along with her. She plays very rough with other dogs and unfortunately does not pick up on there growls or barking that is why she needs a good home with no other animals.

She is great with kids but requires a lot of attention and will need additional training.

Miley is located in Putnam Valley NY and is up to date on all of her shots.

If interested please contact me at

Name: Grits
Gender: Male
Age: 10 Months old
Weight: 24 Pounds
Breed: Terrier Mix
Health: Neutered, Heartworm Negative, UTD on shots, DEAF

Grits is calm when he’s near his person. He enjoys car rides and responds positively to the ‘Car’ command (I’ve seen him bolt out the door and wait at the car expectantly). He’s not afraid to be touched to wake him up or to get his attention (a tap on the nape, or lower back). He’s quiet in public places. Grits is sweet and affectionate. He’s a great couch buddy, and he’s happy sleeping next to his ‘persons’ feet as well. He’s cautious with dogs he’s not been introduced, but is good with building positive friendships with other dogs he meets. Keep in mind that he’s deaf, unknown dogs will startle him if he doesn’t expect them.

Hello my name is Snowy.   

I am deaf but am working on hand signals with my foster. I am able to sit and come with hand signals.  Because I can't hear I like to be able to see my human all the time.  I am good with humans, even little ones. I love attention from everyone. I love going for long walks, I have gone as far as 8 miles. I like other dogs if they are calm. Because I cannot hear loud sounds do no bother me.  I am house trained.

Domino is an approximately one year old, deaf pitty mix. He is neutered and utd on all shots. He was rescued as a puppy and placed with an adoption family by For the Love of Poodles and Pooches. He was returned after the family discovered how difficult it was to train a deaf puppy. He has since been safe housed at a kennel/doggie day care in Richmond, VA. Domino was having a difficult time fitting in because no one knew how to affectively communicate with Domino.


In steps Breakthrough K9 Training, who has taken Domino under their wing, literally, by accepting him into their board and train program. Domino is making huge strides, learning both visual hand commands paired up with e-collar remote training. He not only knows all his basic commands, he is rock solid on down stays, place command, recall and heels like a pro. Domino is very sweet with humans, but because of his deafness can be startled more easily, so we recommend no young children. He does well with other laid back dogs, but has a high prey drive, so would not do well with a family with cats or teacup size dogs. 


If interested in learning more about Domino, please contact Stephanie  with Breakthrough K9 Training at

Wheel Chair Dogs
We have a wonderful adopter of a fabulous wheelchair dog that has offered to speak with anyone needing assistance with your paralyzed dog.  Please contact Elizabeth at 

We will not be accepting anymore paralyzed dogs into the rescue.  The 5 we are currently caring for have filled our spaces for wheelchair/incontinent dogs.  Thank you.

Jubilent Jax - Toy Breeds In Need Rescue - Maryland -

Available for Adoption or Long-Term Foster Placement.

Jax is a stunning cream colored Pekingese Mix. We cannot be certain but, we think Jax may be part Peke and part lion. This little boy has courage and heart that is nothing short of inspirational. He is still very much a pup at only 3 years of age. He is 17 pounds of fluffy, sweet, cotton candy. Jax loves to play with other dogs, likes to chase cats (he means them no harm, he is just curious!) and gives his foster Mom a smooch every time she picks him up. 

A few weeks ago, TBIN offered to welcome Jax in to our rescue after his family decided they were no longer able to care for him. Jax suffered a ruptured disc and so no his hind legs are paralyzed. Upon taking Jax in, we took him to our fabulous holistic vet who evaluated him and began treating him with a few different modalities (herbs, supplements, and laser acupuncture). Jax is in no pain whatsoever and is blissfully unaware that he is paralyzed. Jax is taken out frequently and expressed (this is not hard to do!) and so he does NOT have accidents in the house. Jax had some pretty bad sores on his knees when he was relinquished to us so we ordered him a drag bag (second picture) so that he could scoot along without abrading his skin and allowing his sores to heal (which they have). We are going to be measuring Jax for a cart this week which will be custom made just for him so that he can go for walks outside. While inside, he pulls himself right along and has zero issues getting around. 

Jax is otherwise in good health, up-to-date on vaccines, Heartworm negative, and has been microchipped. We are seeking either an adoptive home for Jax, or someone who is interested in providing him with a long-term foster home. Jax's ideal home would include someone who is home most of the day and is able to take him outside for regular potty breaks. Another small, playful canine companion who would be interested in wrestling and playing with Jax, as he really loves to play and it is great exercise for him. A home without young children would be best (ages 14 and up). 

If you feel that you have room in your heart and home for Jax, please complete an Adoption Application:

Due to my failing health I have a rescue dog in a wheel chair that needs a new home.  Brian was shot and thrown in the woods to die.  By the time he was found, he had lost a lot of weight because he couldn’t move.  We took him in and started putting weight back on him and had him completely checked out by our vet.  Because he was shot he does not have use of his rear legs or control of his bowel and bladder.  He is a happy go lucky dog, loves food and treats.  We bought him an Eddie’s Wheel Cart so he could run around in the back yard.  He loves it and runs around like crazy.  He is up to date on all his shots, neutered,  about  2 years old, heartworm free, blond in color and listed as a mixed breed, weights about 26 lbs.  He is located in East Providence, RI.

His bed, cart, and blankets go with him.  He is on anti seizure pills twice a day as he had seizures in the past.  Anti seizure pills are cheap and are put in his food.  See the picture of Brian.

If you are interested in adopting Brian please call Ken at 401-569-2554, Thank you.

Tundra's Story: Every so often, Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota (RAGOM) is asked to consider taking in dogs who have exceptional needs and very often these dogs have a heart-breaking story that accompanies them. Tundra is one of those dogs.

Tundra is a male golden/shepherd/husky mix who was rescued by a RAGOM volunteer and the director of The Marshmallow Foundation along with two other dogs and three cats. All of these animals had been victims of severe, long-term neglect but because they were not malnourished enough to be seized there was nothing the local authorities could do about it.

Chained to the side of the house on a chain too short to reach his dog house, Tundra had a miserable life. The road to a new life began for Tundra and his canine and feline companions when the owner of the home was evicted. At the same time, a guardian angel neighbor made sure the animals had food and water. She was also very persistent in seeking out help for these animals…while another neighbor had been threatening to shoot them.

As all six animals found themselves in rescue with the Marshmallow Foundation, the Foundation asked asked RAGOM to take Tundra because of our past success with Joy (another wheelchair dog). At some point in Tundra’s life, an unknown event caused a disc rupture or fibrocartilagenous emboli, a catastrophic injury that left his back legs paralyzed. Despite his sad and rough beginnings, he’s a happy boy who soaks up love and attention.

Please contact Kathy Guinn at for more information.  Tundra is located in Minneapolis, MN 

Australian Cattle Dog (Red Heeler)
5 yrs old spayed female
Is being brought UTD on vaccines and HW tested
Currently located an hour north of Dallas in Gainesville, TX


See the attached video and you'll see just how sweet she is. She is friendly, affectionate and playful. She is fine with being handled and groomed. When introduced to other dogs she was not aggressive.


Jesse is hind paralyzed, but continent (i.e. has control of her bladder and bowels). We are currently working on getting her a wheelchair.


Jesse is currently in the care of the Good Samaritan that saved her life, literally. Jesse was this woman's neighbors' dog. When they got her their dogs went after Jesse so they put her outside. One day the Good Samaritan found Jessie unable to walk and went to the neighbor. The neighbor said she was aware of Jesse's condition, that she just showed up like that in the morning and they she probably got hit by a car. Here is where Jesse got lucky...the neighbor's son was going to shoot Jesse and that is when the Good Samaritan told her neighbor she would take Jesse. Jesse was taken to the vet where x-rays were taken and no broken bones were found. The veterinarian prescribed steroids suspecting a disk issue but couldn't confirm that diagnosis with an MRI. Jesse is being boarded in the Good Samaritan's boarding facility (more luck) and is being well cared for, kept clean and given affection.


PLEASE, let's help this Good Samaritan help Jesse get into rescue or a forever home! If you are interesting in learning more about Jesse please e-mail  or

Bubba is an American Staffordshire Terrier, that is about 2 years old. He is the sweetest happiest dog around. When our rescue took him he had no use of his back legs at all. But we have spent a lot of time working with him and he has really come a long way in the 3 months we’ve had him. He can stand for short periods, and even take some steps. He now has actual muscle in his hind legs. And surprises us more and more all the time.  He gets around just fine in the house and just needs help out to the bathroom. He also does not have accidents in the house as long as you take him out fairly regularly.  The length of time has gotten longer as he’s gotten stronger and gained weight. His tail is always wagging. And he just loves to be able to be a part of the family. Loves to chew on bones, hooves, balls, and especially loves to tear apart stuffed animals. He’s just an all around happy boy, that needs to find his forever family. He should not go to a family that has cats, as he’s a little too interested in trying to chase the resident cat at his foster home. Bubba has been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $175.00.

If you have any questions please see our contact us page.

Thank you so much for your consideration - Adrian Alltop (Bubba’s foster mom)

Meet Tilly! She is a sweet, small, 3yr old mixed breed pup who currently resides in Florida, USA.

She made the long travel from Thailand a few weeks ago, and is looking for a loving, forever home or special needs rescue. While in Thailand, Tilly was hit by a car, causing her to be partially paralyzed in her hind legs. She was being held at a wild animal sanctuary, where she couldn't get the treatment she needed to heal. An American volunteer decided to bring her home to give her a second chance.

She was surrounded by other dogs in Thailand, and even had a little doggie best friend. They were always together. She was also around other dogs at the vet and in the airport, and she was her normal self. I've never seen her be aggressive, either with other dogs or food. She has a very mild temperament, and weighs about 17-18 lbs.  

She is currently on pain meds and getting laser therapy, and is able to stand on her own now! She is still not quite walking, but she is certainly trying and her vet has hope :-) She cannot stay where she is and needs a forever home. 

For more information on Tilly or to contact her foster momma, please email Lindsay Sundell at

Please meet Isabella better known as Bella. She is an 8 1/2 year old Rat Terrier who is very sweet and friendly. Bella gets along well with other animals (dogs and cats)  and loves people (especially children!) She lives to lay anywhere there is sunshine. She loves to play catch and is quite smart. Bella suffered from a spinal cord injury back in 2010 causing paralysis from the waist down as well as being incontinent.

This injury, however, has not diminished her spirits and she continues to be an extremely loving and playful companion. We purchased a wheelchair for her which she refused as she is independent and prefers to get around on her own. Aside from this injury, she is in good health and her medical history has been uneventful.

I am looking for a loving home for her as I can no longer care for her.

Please help Bella find a home!

Dogs with Minor Challenges

Truman is a male Lab mix (possibly Cattle Dog). The vet thinks he is about 2-3 years old. Truman was pulled out of the Robertson County Animal Shelter in Springfield, TN by Beau's Wish dog rescue. He was afraid of people and afraid of being touched so no potential adopters would even consider him. He walks with a limp and tends to hold his right paw slightly off the ground so as not to put much weight on it.  We took him to see the vet and, after looking at his x-rays, they determined that Truman had been shot in the shoulder at some point in his life.  Even though Truman has been through a lot in his life already he still loves people!  We are amazed at how well Truman has adjusted to a normal life after being hurt and mistreated for so long.  He loves to play with his foster brothers and sisters and he fits right in with the rest of the pack. He's also learned how fun it is to go for rides in the car and walk around pet stores, people always pet him and give him lots of treats!  Even though Truman walks with a slight limp, that doesn’t hold him back from anything, including running around in the yard and playing with the other dogs!  Truman would love to find his very own family to love. His idea of heaven would be curled up next to his special person or people.  Truman is neutered, house-trained and up to date on all his shots.  He takes daily anti-inflammatory medication as well as a glucosamine supplement.

Allie has mild facial nerve paralysis on the right side of her face. She is at a remote shelter in the mountains of NE Georgia.

Allie is a 2.5 year old American bulldog. She has been in shelter care for 2 years since Nov 2013. She was adopted when 8 weeks old and returned 6 months later with emotional and medical signs of neglect as well as having a harness embedded in her skin. Shortly after her return it was evident that her face was a bit crooked and that she seemed to drool a bit on one side of her face. She was diagnosed with mild facial nerve paralysis that fortunately posed no financial/medical intervention as she had adapted to the condition. She loves to play with dogs and people/children and once she becomes well acquainted with new volunteers is so very excited to see them. Allie has said a silent goodbye to many of her yard mates as each was chosen to leave for the family life that Allie so longs to have. Despite having a heart full of love and a longing for permanent loving companionship, Allie is always left behind once people realize that there is a bit of drool that at times escapes the crooked side of her face. If she could make herself perfect for someone, she would. Her heart and her devotion to those she loves, is beyond perfect. Adopter must be approved in order to assure that Allie's needs and our requirements for her successful placement are met. Allie's adopter must come to our shelter in Sautee GA if approved to adopt to take her home as we do not ship/transport and we need to meet adopters of our residents. Allie has a sponsor who has subsidized her adoption fee to $25.

Point of contact for Allie is Diane McManus (CSHS Marketing) at:

Pepper is a loving dog, about 2-3 years old with motoric problems due to an infection when he was still  in the womb,  Pepper can't run fast and when he tries his back legs seem to have their own mind, nevertheless he is a healthy happy dog in need of a new home. We have been taking care of Pepper with lots of love and received more back from him than we can tell you.

We have now a little baby who is allergic to dogs and cats so it’s with pain in our hearts we have to find a new home for him.

Pepper is house clean,  likes nothing more than just laying down on the grass in the sun.  We let him out in our unfenced backyard as he just sticks around the house napping away.  He gets along well with other dogs ( all neighbors have dogs and even cats are friends to him )

Pepper lives in Marietta GA 30064 and his best friend can be reached on 470 535 9214 or email

Our sweet Aspin, Spotty, arrived in Southern California this spring and she really hit the States running!! She quickly settled into the life of a Cali girl and has been enjoying all the new experiences here (like playing on grass!).

Spotty hails from the streets of Manila where she had a tough time on her own. We don’t know what happened to her there but she was injured and unable to walk when her Philippine rescuers found her. They did an amazing job getting her health back on track as you can see from her early photos. We have continued her rehabilitation in one of our awesome foster homes, and Spots is stronger and healthier than ever! Her back end has a mind of its own, possibly due to an old spinal injury, but Spotty is handicapable and doesn’t notice or care. She has a wonky gait and might stumble every once in a while but she’s right back up again and on to bigger and better things. She’s thrived with good nutrition and supplements, and after a couple months of hydrotherapy she appears to be even stronger.

Our 26 pound girlie is around 3 or 4 years old. She was quite timid when she first arrived but has learned that people can be nice – and we have food :)Yep, Spots is a huge fan of food. Hehe. She also loves all other dogs, cats and critters and a nice, friendly dog or two in her forever home is a must. A quiet environment will suit her best, and we’d really like her to have a backyard to enjoy. Because stairs are difficult for Spotty to manage, a single story home is necessary. Loving, patient parents will complete the package for our Filipina orphan, folks who understand her special needs and appreciate her amazing spirit and will to live. Does that sound like you?

Southern California adopters only please!

Gracie Ellen is a 9 yr old Yorkie/Shitzu mix and weighs about 7 pounds.

Gracie Ellen! What a delightful, pretty name for our pretty little girl. Gracie is a treasure, a precious precocious, intelligent dog who wants to share good times with someone who needs a little companion.  She is about 7 pounds but needs to lose at least one pound (don't we all?) A few long walks will do you both good. She is so unique! Look at that face!

Gracie is happy to be on your lap and spend time with you. So if you are looking for companionship, she volunteers. She has been cleaned up, bathed and all of her matts removed, her hair was cut short - now it will grow in lush and full. We prefer a cool puppy cut for summer, don't you? Walking and going for car rides are two of her favorite pass times, won't you enjoy sharing them with her? If you are a bit lonely, you need Gracie to share your life.

By the way, she was newly diagnosed with diabetes and is going to need two very small doses of insulin a day. Perhaps you are diabetic and check your own blood sugar levels. Gracie will be right with you so this is something else you can share and understand. It's good to have a friend who knows what you need. Don't miss out on our little cutie.

Gracie is vacationing with Tiffany in West Milton, PA. - Her adoption donation is $250

Sadie is 3-4 years old and is a toy poodle found in a high kill shelter in North Carolina.  She is very sweet, smart and now has learn to walk on a leash.  She is housebroken, spayed and current on vaccinations, heart worm and flea protection.  She is a love bug and will make someone a nice companion.  Recently Sadie has had two seizures July 4 (fire works) and July 25 (pet adoption meet and greet) and our vet now believes this  is stress related or induced.  We would like to adopt her to a family that would love to have her with her known disability.

She likes other dogs and people.  She is shy at first and that’s last for about 5 minutes and then you are her very best friend.  She is an outstanding dog and we can’t say enough good things about her and would like to get her into her forever home so  she won’t have the stress of being in a shelter system.

Please reach out if you have questions or need medical documentation. 

Thank you, Lori Mufford, President, Duffy’s Friends, Inc.

Kilee didn't have to move mountains, but she did have one big hill to climb in order to be ready for adoption. This stunning copper-brown dog has seizures, and it took Plenty of Pitbulls in Florida, several months to get her medication and dosage just right. Now, Kilee's vibrant happiness shows in her cute Kilee cam video. She is a shining star at the dog park festival!

Kilee's foster mom says she's a "mellow, well-behaved, easy-going" girl who is "sweet with everyone she meets." Kilee's trainer in Gainesville says now is the time for Kilee to move out of foster care and into the adoring home that she deserves. Can you help three-year-old Kilee graduate into family life? She wants to fly into someone's waiting arms!

It's hard to imagine that Kilee is a special-needs girl, seeing her photos and video. But her medications do cost about $150 per month. Her epilepsy is very well-managed now, and Plenty of Pitbulls wants to find a fantastic, caring adopter to keep this doggie healthy and happy.
If you're interested in meeting Kilee, please call Sharon Nataline at 352-231-0702 or email her at Plenty of Pitbulls says Kilee loves other dogs, so a dog-rich home would be grand. You can share Kilee's on her Petfinder page with friends.  Can you help this sweet, vibrant Florida dog put on wings and fly away home?

Sweet LILLY........... is a very pretty boxer/boston mix approx. 10 months old. She is house and kennel trained. She is very loving and playful and gets along well with other dogs and cats. She lost an eye in an unfortunate accident with another dog as a little pup but that has not altered her playful attitude with dogs. She loves to play with children as well and pretty much anyone that she meets. Lilly has learned several basic obedience commands. She would love a family, a yard to have fun in and a playmate would be great fun. She is current on shots, spayed and microchipped and just waiting to hear from you. Lilly is located in Spring, Texas. The fosters will transport within the USA. Please contact 

Hi everyone! My name is Arnie, and I would love to be your best friend! I get along with everyone and love to play! I walk kind of funny and lose my balance sometimes because the doctors say have a condition called Myotonia Congenita. I take on the world at a slower pace, but I don't mind--you should see my huge muscles! Arnie is currently in foster care, if you would like to meet with him please contact Animal House at 970-224-3647.
