A couple weeks ago we were able to send 6 of our precious beasties to S & L rescue in NJ and my friend Lisa is taking good care of them. Nube, my Great Dane, Bruno the Rottie mix, Amanda’s rescues, Alex and Chubby went and also Tina and puppy Bella. That happened thanks to those of you who donated for the trip. oh yeah – it did get here in time:) Thank you SO much.
And today we were able to send 8 doglets to the angels at Monmouth SPCA and Wag on Inn!! Clemmen, Michelle, Panchita, Roxy, Onyx, Piru and puppies Holly and Molly left today. They took our pups because of all the new ones that need to come home soon.
Also, sweet Camila was adopted right here in PR by a wonderful family in Utuado. Margarita Carbonell, my friend and I drove Camila the 2 hour trip to the mountains of Utuado to take precious girl to Marga’s sister’s house where Camila is now a beloved famly member!
Here are pictures of the kids who left in order:

For those of you in the states, I don’t know if you’ve heard about the terrible disaster of the Gulf refinery explosion but it was huge, 19 tanks were devastated and it left lots of animals displaced, dehydrated, scared and gritty from the fire. Rescuers from around here were working hard to get animals out of there and even the police worked with us. My friend Doreen works with the hotels and she was able to get 2 hotels nearest to Ft. Buchanon to take the families from the base with their pets till the fire was put out, since the explosion was on one of their boundaries. The explosion was Thursday afternoon and on Friday, I had a sore throat and tight chest so I didn’t go to the fire. But there were lots of heroes and Barbara and Celi were two who kept going in day after day to take puppies and moms and other doglets to safety. All our fire kids are at Dr. Casta’s now living the spa life and soon will be coming home with Barby and me for some much needed TLC. Pictures will soon follow.
Meanwhile, on the way home from the airport after shipping today’s kids, Celi and I drove by a small blond terrier mix girly doglet. I’d been watching her for weeks here at the beach because she is small, very sweet and submissive. I just couldn’t bring any more home because I had so many. Heck – I paid down Dr. Casta’s bill of $2800 and a month later it’s $3400 again. But of course little China is now fed, watered and safely tucked away in her run until tomorrow when I can take her to the good doctor. I know it’s only a band aid to the population problem here, but for each one we’re able to save, it’s the difference between life and death. I just wish I could do more.
Just wanted you all to know that Homer has been home from Dr. Casta’s office for about 3 weeks and besides some socialization issues that are now under control, he is heartworm free and living a good life. His hair is now growing back and he’s calmed down from his horrible life on the beach.
Now that my internet seems to be working (all but slowly in this rural beach town) I will be putting up many happy stories of kids adopted from Wag On Inn and Monmouth SPCA. And hopefully, after S & L Rescue’s adoption day today in New Jersey, I’ll get good news about some of my newly adopted kids tomorrow
That’s all for now friends. Been working hard on the ACO/CI course coming in January and I keep rescuing. Without your help and donations, none of this could happen so I thank those of you angels who have been faithfully helping rescue along side of us. Every penny you give goes to the animals. Please folks, donate when you can and always adopt the adoptable. Thank you so much for reading.
