Meet ALLY: A few days ago we got an email from a vet office asking to help a 5 years old yellow lab who had been turned in to them with a request for her to be put down because she had a cruciate ligament tear. We initially said we could not afford a dog that needed surgery but then slowly more information started coming up. As the vet talked with the family trying to convince them not to put the dog down, they learned that she was actually adopted from us in 2012. Once we found out she is a LFS, of course we came to the rescue! Here she is on her way to one of our vets, a new knee, and soon a new family… Just a reminder to everyone who had adopted or will adopt a dog from us: you have signed or will sign an adoption contract that states you will not put the dog down unless it is an emergency and also stating that we will take the dog back at any time for any reason. We do our best to screen families to adopt our dogs but clearly we sometime miss: If you think you may one day find your self euthanizing a dog for a health issue that is easily curable, do not adopt from us! Stating that we are broke is an understatement and we clearly have no money for this surgery but we will hopefully find some wonderful people that, like us, think that a ligament tear is not a good reason to terminate a life. If you are one of such wonderful people, please click below and help us raise the money for Ally’s surgery. She is super sweet, a little scared right now but slowly relaxing. She very much deserves a better life.

foster update 10/26: Thanks to everyone who donated to Ally’s ACL surgery! She is happily recovering in her foster home where she has made one of the crates her little spot to rest. You can tell she can’t wait to be running around and playing, but we’re trying to go slow so she doesn’t hurt herself again. She’s starting to put weight on her back leg and we’re taking short walks around the neighborhood. Ally gets along with other dogs and goes to the door to tell us she has to go outside.
Foster update 11/13: Ally is doing great. She is spending more time out of the crate and even started joining her foster brothers on walks and she loves it. She is all cuteness and sweetness especially when she asks for a scratch.
