New Beginnings

Clifford goes home!

You may remember "Clifford" from a posting a week or so ago. He was languishing on a cold cement floor in a shelter in Colorado at the time.

Well, Clifford made the long trip from Colorado to his new home in Arizona this weekend. He is pictured here in Flagstaff, taking a walk with his new mom before he heads down to the Valley to his new home.

I think you can see a huge change in Clifford's face if you compare this picture to his shelter picture. He charmed all of his transport driver's with his calm, pleasant demeanor. He was a true gentleman and handled the trip with grace and dignity.

A very special "THANK YOU" to everyone that helped make this possible for Clifford. Our Transport Coordinator, Beth Goldowitz, worked really hard to put this trip together and we are very grateful to her. As always, we are so thankful for the Transport Drivers that continue to graciously donate their time and gas to drive dogs that they've never met and will likely never see again.

We would also like to thank Kathie at the shelter in Craig, CO for saving Clifford and giving us the opportunity to find a home for him.

Thank you to Mary P for opening her home and heart to Clifford and giving him this second chance.

We also had another boy sprung from death row and transported to foster care this weekend. "Maxx" was pulled from a rural KY shelter just before he was set to be put down.

Juliana worked her special magic and set up a transport for Maxx to travel to his foster home in Florida. Maxx is now safe and sound with Mary B., his foster mom and his new foster sister, "Teja" , who was rescued last year from a TX shelter.
Pictures of Maxx will be posted soon!

All in all, it was a great weekend.

The bad news is we still have dogs in urgent need of foster or adoptive homes.

  • Kismit in Colorado

  • Duke in Arizona

  • Max in Oklahoma

  • Benson & Bernie in KY
