New girls


I saw these puppies today: two of them siblings and another slightly bigger girl, but they seem to have the same age. The two smaller puppies seem to be very scared, but after a while they show how sweet they are--they reminds me of Sami and Sally. Unfortunately with hurricane Omar coming they will have to spend the storm at the boathouse. We would like to take all of them to a more secure place but there is no money or enough houses to place them. We already have several dogs in foster homes or at vet clinics (Kieran, Kiefer, Karyn, Rex, Alyssa, Elsie, Cassie, Shakira and her 7 puppies & Kepler)

These two adult females arrived this week. They are small and sweet.

they all just look so sweet!!! after looking at the Aircebo (sp?) shelter photos, people must think that they are so much better off at the beach.....poor babies...

There are some adult dogs that are very happy being at the beach--dogs that were born there or grew up there, like Harley, Dana, Darlene, Danya and Rachel. They usually know how and when to hide when they see trouble. It's more difficult for recently abandoned pets--especially puppies that usually end hit by cars, poisoned or died of parvovirus or leptospirosis because they had never been vaccinated. There are some people that take dogs from the beach as pets, but that's of a little comfort for me because some of them get back to the beach or other places that I never will know. The worse thing is that these people usually never get this dogs to a vet to be spayed/neutered and not even for basic vaccinations. In one word, it's FRUSTRATING to know people don't learn and blame others for their mistakes.

I'm mad because last week someone asked me if I would take two dogs if he brings them to the beach... I found that odd and I tried to go for my camera to get the plates of the pickup truck in case something happens--but he went so fast that I lost the vehicle. It occurs to me that one of these pairs of new dogs could be the ones this guy--or should I say asshole--was refering to.

I totally understand your frustration!!! Unfortunately, I don't see any end to the situation until the govt changes and we all know that doesn't happen overnight and sometimes never. There is no easy answer that doesn't involve the people in power suddenly having a change of heart. But you ARE making a difference in the lives of the animals you do save. Please don't ever forget that!!!

it's crazy that people just don't think of these dogs as actual living creatures that need to be cared for and loved. if the dogs could walk into a store or visit a dr. on their own they would, BUT since that doesn't happen people need to TAKE CARE OF THE PETS THEY OWN and not rely on others to do so. the dogs are lucky to have you, Sandra!

I'm sure that man did leave his dogs......

Sandra to see what you have to see down at the beach is frustrating to anybody. I honestly commend you for doing what you do every day. Thanks to you and Ginny some dogs do find a way out of there and into loving hands. Please keep doing what you do, you are their only hope.
