A FEW OF OUR RESCUE STORIES
Pictures speak volumes
Here in South Texas leash laws are not enforced. No city license tags are required. Not many options for free/low cost spay & neuter programs. A large part of the population thinks it's against God and man to neuter a dog (culture thing?). Not many cities required chips. So dogs are running loose, reproducing all over & this is what we get ... buckets and buckets of babies. The shelters are full and many of them have little or no rescue programs. Paw-Posse works hard to try to save what we can BEFORE they land in a shelter. These are some of the lucky ones, they will never see the inside of a black trash bag.
We pulled Anastasia from the Wesalco A/C. A rescue out of NJ wanted her so we basically fostered her for them. She turned out beautiful with just a little TLC. First picture was the day I brought her home, 2nd picture is her in her fur-ever home in New Jersey.
Devon was in pretty bad shape when he was rescued. Good medical care and a caring foster made all the difference for this boy.
Sometimes you have to get down & dirty to catch the babies. These were in a culvert pipe in a drive that the tractors use to get in/out of the fields. If we hadn't saved them they most likely would have gotten hit in the road, or run over by a piece of farm equipment.
these dogs came about because we targeted a neighborhood in Donna TX to try to spay and neuter stray dogs, or dogs that were owned but owners would/could never spend the money. We agreed to take these puppies IF we could spay their mother. They were transported to a foster in Wisconsin who works to find service dogs and both pups were accepted into their program. We're proud of the work we do, but this "save" made us especially proud. They will both be in service to veterans.
Gypsy - Some dogs just know where to come for help. We had every crate and kennel full and Gypsy just laid in our front yard until we helped her. This is no small feat for a dog since we live in a gated community. She turned out to be the SWEETEST dog. She's been adopted in Wisconsin.
Genny w as found in a hotel parking lot & people were throwing rocks at her. Someone who works there put her in a fenced garbage area & called for help. Another rescuer brought her to us. She was a really sweet, smart pup. Just needed a tender touch.
