Can you help Bea- ADOPTED!

| January 25th, 2012 | No Comments »

Hi, my name is Beatrice and I’ve been waiting for my very own home for nearly two years. I’ve thought for a long time that I get passed over because of my name. Beatrice. Sounds like it belongs to someone’s great aunt. An uptight great aunt. I’ve noticed that lots of the other K9 dogs tell the history of their name – or that it means something spectacular in a foreign language. So I googled my own name. Found out that it means “traveler” or “voyager” in Latin. But even better is that Beatrice was the muse of a very famous author – Dante. Although they only ever met twice in his life, she was his inspiration. In one of his stories, she guided him through heaven. I like my name a whole lot more now.

Phoenix was left on the side of the road- ADOPTED!

The story of the Phoenix bird burning in flames and finally rising out of the ashes is a classic inspirational myth.  The Phoenix has long been presented as a symbol of rebirth, immortality, and renewal.

Jemma deserves a chance- ADOPTED!

| June 27th, 2011 | Comments Off

If you ever want to make a difference in a dog’s life, consider Jemma.  You are truly saving a life!  Jemma’s days were numbered when she and her pup were dumped off at a high kill shelter in Georgia.  Everyone walked by the ‘ugly’ dog with the sad eyes…they couldn’t look…it was such a sad sight.  At K-9 Lifesavers, we don’t see ugly; we see a beautiful soul who has been neglected and mistreated.  We see the skin rash is gone and a gorgeous shiny red coat.  Imagine glistening brown eyes and a tail that wags when you walk in the door.  Imagine…the possibilities…NOT the obstacles.  The Jemma we’re describing is in this broken body.  She just needs her hero to give her what she deserves more than anyone…a chance. Can you be her hero?
