Happy Tails - Koda

Another happy tails post! Hurray! We received this note from Koda’s new family.

I am attaching a few pics of Koda. It's hard to get pics of him because he won't get far enough away from me long enough for me to snap the pic, except when Lexi is present.  The red eyes aren't great-- unfortunately I haven't mastered my digital camera yet. We are doing well.  I am crating him only when I leave...he is still sleeping with us, going for a daily walk, and seems very  happy.  I've thrown a ball more in the last 5 days than in several years ha ha.
I do notice he tends to chew (especially harder food like treats) more on the side with both the upper and lower canine present, but I guess that's okay.  He compensates well. I will pray nothing ever happens to that lower canine on his left side :) 
Hope one of these will work for your blog.  You may want to crop it if you don't want Lexi in it. I'm looking into obedience classes. He is a little wild man on the leash sometimes due to his excitement in exploring, and I find myself or one of Lexi's legs all tangled up.  It's pretty comical, but he was better yesterday.  Practice makes perfect...”

Happy Tails - Zoey

On a day to be thankful, we are thankful for everyone who has adopted a homeless dog!

We received a note from Pennie, who recently adopted Zoey. Zoey is doing great in her new home!

“Hey LK,
Thought you might enjoy a pic of my kids together - a rare still moment. They play non stop and she doesn't realize she is half his size. We got rid of her tapeworm yay! She (Zoey) is such a sweetie. Thanks for everything.


Thankful for Roads of Hope

In time for Thanksgiving, we want to feature a wonderful transport group that really helps save a lot of dogs, Roads of Hope.

Roads of Hope helped back in September to transport several dogs from a puppy mill bust, even all the way to New Mexico and Tennessee. In October, they helped coordinate a transport for two German Shepherd Dogs from Arlington to Wisconsin.

Roads of Hope, and Cheryl, have been an awesome help in saving the lives of many dogs and we are very thankful for them this Thanksgiving. If you’d like to learn more about the organization, or donate to their cause, please visit their website.

Female Sibe available

This gal sits in a rural county shelter. She is under 2 and a bit of a digger and chewer (surprise!). She kept escaping home number one. She was lucky enough to get adopted again, and her new male human was killed in a car accident.
So, here she is in doggie prison again.
Does anyone want to foster or adopt this confused, devilish young husky female?
And, we have someone who will do transport and hang onto her until Sunday if you are going to be out of town for a few days.
Thanks everyone.

Skye is excited!

Thanks for everyone’s support regarding Skye. Here she is celebrating her arrival in Dallas last night. Sorry for the photography, but I thought y’all would like a quick update.

Skye is a snuggly and happy gal. She was a real trooper both at the vet and in the long car ride.
Welcome Sara to officially fostering. Sara has been sharing foster duty with 3 recent huskies, and now she has her own! What a great dog to start with. We’ll get this gal some obedience and she will fly out of here (literally and figuratively). Did we mention she was heartworm negative!

FYI, The Klein Animal Shelter has the best customer service by far! What a great shelter to send your donations to, and to watch to help save their dogs. It’s quite a hike from Dallas, but we’re a big fan already. Here’s the link to the shelter.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

August Dog Rescue has a website!

We received this message about August Dog Rescue's new website. I don't think we could say it better ourselves, so we'll just repost Nancy's email!


After lots of hard work, I am happy to annouce that August Dog Rescue's new website is up and running!!

Feel free to distract yourself this morning at

We are also working on a special push to increase the number of our monthly partners - we are currently able to rely on just over $300 coming in at the beginning of each month, and we would be overjoyed to increase this number to $1000 at the beginning of each month.

If 70 people signed up to have $10 automatically donated each month, we would reach this goal!

If 28 people signed up to regularly contribute $25, we would be there!

Your help will allow us to continue regularly taking new animals into the program, as adoption donations don't cover nearly all of our vet bills.

Don't forget that we are a 501c3 non-profit organization run solely by volunteers, so your contributions are tax deductible and going straight to helping dogs and cats in need!

You can check out the slideshow on our homepage to see the faces of animals recently rescued with your donations!

Thank you so much for your consideration, and have a fabulous day!
