Rescue in Need – Capone

Hello Rescue Power Friends – here is a rescue in need brought to our attention by one of our readers!

“This is Freckles. He was found on a busy street by a friend. My friend brought the dog to me.
I decided to bring the dog to the vet to have him checked out and it cost me to $104. He had every worm you can imagine and an ear infection.

I have 2 rescued dogs already, 3 rescued horses and 3 cats. I take very good care of them. I cannot afford to have heartworm treatments for him and I need help. I did find a vet who would give Freckles a treatment for $150. I need someone to take him or help me pay for the treatments. He is great with children and other dogs and cats. He knows to sit and shake. He does not jump on people and he is very calm.

Forever Friends Great Dane Rescue

P.O. Box 733
Morris, IL 60405

Forever Friends Great Dane Rescue (FFGDR) was founded by a small group of people dedicated to the great dane breed. Our goal is to help neglected, abandoned, and abused great danes find their forever homes while educating the public. We believe that every animal deserves a forever family to love them unconditionally for the rest of their lives.

We are a small start up group with many years of experience with great danes and rescue. Our collective experience with Dane rescue will allow us to continue our desire to make an impact on the lives of the great danes we can take in and help. Currently, we accept surrenders from families and shelters and adopt to forever homes in Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan. With the help of our supporters, we hope to eventually grow our group, spread our message, and rescue great danes.

FFGDR specializes in great danes. We accept great danes of all ages and from all types of situations. We are not a shelter, our dogs live in foster homes as part of a family until their medical and emotional needs have been met and they are ready for their forever homes.

Our message is simple and can be summed up in three words: Conservation, Preservation, and Education.

Buy 1 Give 1 for Used Dogs!

We have some new items, and among them is a Fleur de Lis sticker that benefits Used Dogs Rescue in New Orleans.

This item joins our other items that benefit Used Dogs, include the Woof Fleur de Lis dog charm, keychain, sticker and the Used Dogs make Better Pets sticker.

To remember the 5 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina – we are doing a Buy one Give one for Used Dogs Rescue. Buy one of the five items that benefit Used Dogs and in addition to the portion we normally donate, we will GIVE an additional dollar for each “Used Dogs” item sold in September.

The best part – you don’t have to do anything – just shop! We will take care of the rest.

Our Pal Princess Leah and a “Used Dog” ready to adopt!

We had such a great response to our used Dogs update – we even had one reader who wanted to adopt one of the dogs but was too late. Princess Leah, a New Orleans rescue dog herself, saw one of the Used Dogs rescues and almost got a sibling.

No worries Princess Leah – I am sure there is a companion for you out there soon!

Today – our pals at Used Dogs let us know there is a puppy that just came in for adoption. Check out this mug! Love the stripey nose – just primed for petting. If you know anyone looking for a cajun pup – this may be the one.


Used Dogs Rescue Updates

As you know, several of our product item sales benefit Used Dogs Rescue in New Orleans. Her is an update of what is going on in the Big Easy….

With the oil spill there is a lot of extra tasks they have taken on – so if you can donate please do!

Due to the Oil Spill, Used Dogs is helping with re-homes for people in the Coast Guard who are just working ALL THE TIME now. And the Boat DOGs.

Spring brought us a lot of emaciated dogs for some reason.

Below are some happy dogs who are up for adoption as well as some who have been adopted recently. USED DOGS will be at Petcetera with adoptable dogs Saturday August 21 from 1 – 6 at 3205 Magazine Street.

Blind Dog Rescue Alliance

Blind Dog Rescue Alliance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit group dedicated to rescuing and re-homing blind and visually impaired dogs. We rescue these special dogs from shelters and owners who can no longer keep them, foster them in our homes, and find forever homes for them. We also try to help blind dog owners with advice on helping their blind dog navigate. We also are focused on educating the public on blind dogs, and what a wonderful quality of life they have. We are based in Philadelphia, PA but we have volunteers and foster homes throughout the US, and some in Canada. We always need volunteers to help with many aspects of rescue, such as fostering, fund raising, attending local events, checking applications, and much more! If you want any photos, please feel free to take from the available and adopted dogs on our website.
