2017 Annual Member Meeting

The 2017 annual members meeting for all paid members will be held on Saturday. February 11, 2017 at 2:00 pm in Dallas Texas. Even if you can not attend the meeting this is a great way to support all of the good work that rescue does! Every bit of your annual dues goes to help the sick, injured and neglected dogs that we are able to save from death row.

Lenny Hit the Jackpot (and just in time for Christmas!)

Lenny came to rescue heartworm positive and with a nasty pressure sore on his leg. He was a senior Dane in rough shape and needing a lot of TLC. Through the patient care of his foster mom and our veterinarians, he received treatment for the wound and underwent heartworm treatment. His gentle temperament quickly won over his foster mom, and we were all hopeful he would soon find a furever home.

Ellie's Home for the Holidays

Ellie is an energetic, loving puppy who found herself in a shelter when her initial owner became overwhelmed. She wanted badly to please her foster family and began learning how to behave properly while in their care. She was recently matched with a family who is continuing her training. Ellie now has a family to call her own, complete with another dog to help her burn off some of that puppy energy.

Congratulations to Ellie and her new family!

Leo's the King of His Castle

Leo is a sweet dude who took some time to open up to and trust his foster home. Some dogs do well as only dogs, some do well at home alone all day, and others just love to be surrounded by playmates and people. Leo fell into the latter category. He loves his people, loves other dogs, and even does well with kitties. Happily, he gets plenty of time with all three – people, dogs, and kitties – in his furever home. Congratulations to Leo and his furever family!

Iris is Counting Her Blessings!

Iris is a sweet, senior lady who came to rescue in search of a better life. Her first six years were rough, and it was no surprise that she was heartworm positive at intake. With a little love and some veterinary care, Iris underwent heartworm treatment and began her journey back to health. Now, she is heartworm negative and has a fabulous home with another dog to keep her company in her golden years.

Her new family recently sent in this heart-warming update:

Puppy Bliss in a FURever Home

I really should have posted this way before now..

Puppies are work. I think I have the only kids in the world who see a puppy and cringe because they are far too familiar with all the training, time and work that go into having a puppy in the house. Being a puppy foster home we know too well the reality of a puppy, the good the bad and the obnoxious.... but this is why we love them... and also why we have requirements for adopters to be approved to adopt a puppy.

Lovely Lacey Finds a Home

Great Danes eat great amounts of food, sort of. Surprising as this is for many people, a Great Dane can over-eat and become overweight. Sweet Lacey came to rescue in need of a diet. Our veterinarian ruled out physiological causes for her excess weight and determined it was simply a case of too much food. Luckily for Lacey, one of our fosters is a registered dietician and was excited to help Lacey regain her svelte figure!

Charity Motors for GDRNT


WOW we have the best supporters
Recently we got an awesome donation from Charity Motors because someone donated a vehicle to them in our name.... How cool is that.

What they do.

Sam the Man has found his FURever Pad

How this dude found him self in need of rescue I won't understand... but it happens. Sam is all personality and the kind of guy you would want your sister to date. HA HA Samuel is a sweet dude who unexpectedly found himself in rescue and he knew how to charm everyone he met. This guy has never met a heartbeat he couldn't win over.

Sugar, Sugar FURever at Home

Sweet Sugar found her self in a not so sweet spot when she ended up in an area shelter. She was filthy, covered in tick's/fleas, had never been inside and way to skinny. The poor girl didn't understand that her life was about to get so much sweeter.
