3rd Annual Make A Dog’s Day is October 22, 2021

Dogs with physical differences on the outside are still one-hundred percent dog on the inside. Maybe they’re missing an eye, or a leg, but they’re not missing heart. All this month, Subaru is proud to be celebrating shelter dogs with special needs. These incredible Underdogs may be the last ones to be adopted, but they’ll be the first ones into your heart. And, as this commercial demonstrates, these inspiring Underdogs can still do all the great things we love about dogs. Consider adopting today.

Shelter Sunday: Maya / It’s A Ruff Life Rescue / Hamilton, NJ

Maya NJ

Meet Maya! This beautiful girl is best described as playful and loving. Here’s what her rescuers have to say about her: Available for Adoption in NJ/PA

Maya is a sweet 6 year old mixed breed! When we say mixed, we aren’t kidding….we did the DNA test! This girl is a little of everything! American Staffordshire, Chow Chow, Labrador Retriever, Great Pyrenees and a bunch of other stuff all thrown in. Resulting in one gorgeous girl. She’s been searching for her forever home for way too long! How has no one scooped her up? Continue reading Shelter Sunday: Maya / It’s A Ruff Life Rescue / Hamilton, NJ

Shelter Sunday: Special Needs Finley / New Digs for Dogs Rescue / North Haverhill, NH

Finley NH

Meet Finley! This beautiful girl has some very special needs, but I’m confident there’s a very special family out there somewhere for her. Here’s what her rescuers have to say about her:

Finley is 3 years old and about 45 pounds. She is a mixed breed.
Finley came to us a very fearful puppy. We have done a ton of work with her, but she is afraid of almost everything. She is jumpy at loud noises, like if you drop something.
She is ok with us, but even after years of trying, she is still very afraid of strangers.
Finley is a big barker. She barks at the neighbors, she barks anytime she is afraid of something.
The time she is most at ease is when she is playing with the other dogs.
I know it is a stretch that she will find the right home, but maybe one is out there. Continue reading Shelter Sunday: Special Needs Finley / New Digs for Dogs Rescue / North Haverhill, NH

Shelter Sunday: Jasper / Safe Haven Rescue Kennel / Yerington, NV

Jasper NV

Meet Jasper! This handsome boy wants to be an only child for some lucky family. Here’s what his rescuers have to say about him:

Jasper is a young 1 yr old husky mix. Active family home that will have him indoors and love on him. However, no small children as he is nippy and too rambunctious . Walks well on leash. Pulls somewhat. Would be good as an only dog. But very friendly with people. Sweet and rather attentive for a husky.

Shelter Sunday: Adoptable Dogs Moved to California Ahead of Hurricane Ida

Greater Good Charities mobilized planes and organized pilots to pick up 60 animals from Louisiana and take them to the Helen Woodward Animal Center near San Diego and the San Diego Humane Society.

Camp Run-A-Mutt volunteers were helpful on the ground with unloading the animals as they arrived.

Kudos to all involved.

Good day, and Good dog!

If you’re a football fan, you might know that Cleveland Browns fans sit in the Dawg Pound endzone and that the team mascot is a Dawg.

So it only makes sense they would use their training camp to encourage dog adoptions. For the 7th year, they have partnered with Sugardale Foods to bring puppies from the NE Ohio SPCA to camp for fans to adopt. Continue reading Shelter Sunday: Cleveland Browns Pound Puppies

Shelter Sunday: Jodi / K-9 Freekz Rescue / Grand Island, NE

Jodi NE

Meet Jodi! Now y’all know how I am about those long hound ears. Someone better go snap her up before I make my way out to Nebraska! Here’s what Jodi’s rescuers have to say about her:

Jodi is a new mama that finished weaning her baby. She is now ready for her own forever home! She’s 2 years old and weighs about 50 lbs. She is people and dog friendly, but seems to have a bit of a prey drive with squirrels, so cats and other tiny animals might not work for her home. She is the most kind and sweet girl with her amazing brown eyes! She is kennel and house trained, but not fully vetted yet, as we need to wait for her milk to dry up before her spay.

Jodi is currently a guest of K-9 Freekz Rescue (love the name!) in Grand Island, Nebraska. If you’re lucky enough to be nearby, please contact K-9 Freekz to learn more about Jodi and all of her friends. Call (402) 525-5900, send an email to [email protected] or fill out an online application.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Manny MT

Meet Manny! This handsome boy is a German Shepherd / Cattle Dog mix. Here’s what his rescuers have to say about him:

Manny is a super nice boy that wants a human to love! He gets along great with other dogs, but plays hard. He naps hard also! He has so much love to give and he will make a wonderful and loyal companion for life! Mans best friend right here! Continue reading Shelter Sunday: Manny / Freckles and Tomcat Rescue / Billings, MT

Shelter Sunday: Buddy / Loving Paws Adoption Center / Crocker, MO

Buddy MOMeet Buddy! This senior gentleman is a Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix who is neutered and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Here’s what his rescuers have to say about him>

Sweet Buddy spent the first years of his life tied outside 24/7 and was finally given to a neighbor when the people moved. His rescuer took him in and found him an awesome home where he lived in luxury till his owner passed away. He is now back with his rescuer and looking for a home to spend his last days again and comfort with lots of love. Buddy is truly one of the sweetest and funniest dogs! He loves car rides, his walks, absolutely loves bully sticks and bones.
He gets a burst of energy and let’s you know when he is ready to have some fun. He jumps and spins around with a little howling, it makes you giggle. He loves everyone, all sizes and ages. He has been with different dogs and cats, but seems to be dog selective especially toward larger dogs.

Buddy is currently a guest of Loving Paws Adoption Center in Crocker, Missouri. If you’re lucky enough to be nearby, please contact Loving Paws to learn more about Buddy and all of his friends.
