I have been found and I am so happy to be home. I was hungry and tired but safe! Thank goodness!

Enzo is a 3 year old, neutered male, red-nosed, Am. Pit Bull Terrier.

He weighs about 65 pounds.

He was last seen last night (Monday, July 23rd) between 8:30pm and 10pm
in his fenced yard in Arlington in the 14000 block of Burn Rd.

He is very friendly with everyone and loves other dogs.

Please, please, please if you can help in any way please call his mama
Jennie Rose at 360.435.8310 or 360.435.933
or you can call his rescue mama Ellen @ 206.295.5135....Thank you so much!

We really want to bring him home soon!

We have brought you Dylan and His Friends Before

We have been in the shelter for over 2 months! Any dog that can survive the shelter environment for this long is an absolute gem of a pet and friend. Especially when they are there because their owners have passed, as many of these awesome dogs have been through.

Annie's Garden Party Was A GREAT SUCCESS!

Thank you Deborah of Good Citizen Canine

for putting this event together with Katherine of Bamford and Bamford Pots in Tacoma. Here is the results of our efforts!

Thank you for those of you who volunteered, donated money or simply turned out for Annie's Garden Party yesterday at Bamford & Bamford. It was a huge success.

We helped to get new foster homes for 5 dogs from Ginger's Pet Rescue, new permanent homes for 3 and possibly more.

We won't know how much money was raised until we receive some additional donations from vendors, but we think the numbers were pretty good.

If you're interested in donating, please feel free to visit Bamford Pottery at 3001 S. Huson, right below the Fircrest Home Depot. All donations will be split among several very reputable pet rescue organizations.

And, if you are looking for something to do today, Lynette Young (who owns and operates the Clip-N-Clean and 26 Bark Avenue and is a great supporter of all dog and cat causes) is having an anniversary sale at 26th and Alder in Tacoma which goes until 5:00 PM. She's serving Champagn and Chocolate and has many nice things for sale.

Thanks again for all your help!

And a note from Ginger...

Hi Debra,

Thank you so much for inviting me to Annie's Garden Party! I had a super great time and meeting you and so many others was such a treat. I was also so thrilled to have the opportunity to meet so many of the people on my network as many of them live in the Tacoma area.

I even got two dogs Misha and Dudley adopted out and possibly a pending third one !!!!
I met the groomer from Bark Central who washed dogs at your event and Jennifer Mounts offered to
foster 5 of our death row dogs. WOW...I hit the jackpot at your event as well !!!

Jennifer's wonderful father ended up taking our Barney home and he is fostering him now.
Barney can not be around any other animals and you know how hard finding a foster home for that kind of dog is. I am SO so much accomplished yesterday and yes I met all the vendors and plan on doing some event parties with them as well.

Deena was great to see again and super Thanks for the dog food donation you brought from Petapoluza Pet Supply in Fremont WA. The dog food is going to a foster mom that has 4 of my foster dogs!

Also meeting Kate and all her most wonderful and talented Labradors & cattle dog.
Kate, I love every dog you had sitting on that little tiny white stool. What a great show you put on.
ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU SO MUCH ALL OF was very successful event for us.

Des Moines Market

Hi everyone,

Just a short report today as I didn't stay for the whole time.

A beautiful day and some great new Friends stopped by:
Midnight, a Lab/Doxy mix, black as you can guess by his name and talk about following your nose, his was in everything!

Jo Jo, a Poodle and Brussels Griffin. A new mix for us and looked the part.

Cece, a 1 yr. 8 mo Aussie Sheppard and a real beauty. She could be the star of any sheep herding movie.

That's all for now but check in again soon for some excitingly new blog items.


Queerfest '07

Hey one and all, sorry for the serious delay of this post. I thought it was up and it wasn't. Well I am here to fix all that! Look at this face, we all had a great time!

Long time no write. Well, I attended my first Queer Fest and it was a new experience for me. We made new friends-

Willie, a Jack Russel, peppy,peppy,peppy.

Paco, a Chihuahua/Jack Russel mix, a very happy street rescue.

Jasper, a Lab- a sweety

Novo Deia, New Day in Portuguese, rescued from the Tacoma Animal Shelter.

Jade and family

Fraser, a mutt-couldn't be loved more.

Dad and Mowgli, look at the love

Tessie and The Mowgli with their pet Lynett.

There was so much Gay Pride. I am delighted to see everyone having a great time, supporting one another in their passion and lifestyle. There was so much activity. Check out the tie-dyed pup.

Groups, petitions, condoms and bubble makers.

Dont' forget the wild outfits! A true Queerfest!

Check out the pics of the folks at Queerfest 2007.

Thanks for having us!
Until next time,

Save Us!

This precious little girl was found wandering the streets in Burien near 4th Avenue.

She has no tag or microchip. She is currently being fostered by Sherri and we would like to offer the owner the opportunity to claim her before she is put up for adoption. You may contact Sheri at (206) 245-7129 if you have any questions. She is a happy and energetic little girl who loves to play and gets along well with other dogs.

She also loves people and is fine with children. Perhaps she’s just not use to it but she does get car sick. It seems that she has been loved and perhaps her family is looking for her. Posters and flyers have been put up and distributed to maximize the chances of getting her back home. Carina

Meet Mister Tibbs the Mastiff Mix

My name is Mister Tibbs and I am a 2 yr old Mastiff Mix. I have one blue eye and one brown eye and my foster mom says that I am a very handsome dog! I am neutered up to date with all my shots, and weigh 95 lbs..I was very lucky to be saved out of a high kill shelter down in California and got transported up to Seattle. I am a happy dog, very playful, love attention and I am eager to please you. I get along great with other dogs, older kids but like to chase cats.I do have anxiety separation issues and would love to have someone who can be home a lot. Another dog in the family would be great especially an older dog than me.I do require a fenced in yard so I can get my exercise.

Please email:
Adoption Fee: $ 250.00
