we are home!!
Just a few from our long list who found furever home. 

It started with 15 chihuahuas....

15 little chihuahuas live in horrible conditions. The owner passed away and there's no one to care for them. We will bring them to safety, with the help of our foster mom, Melody, so they can be treated by the vet for skin condition, one boy missing his front leg, many missing their teeth, and everything else.

While catching the first 5, surprise surprise, mom just gave birth to 2 babies. Unfortunately, one dies after 24 hours and the second the day after. 

We suspected there may be another pregnant girl and we were right. Two puppies arrived a week after and unfortunately, only one survived.

Needless to mention they all needed the vet's attention. Slowly, they got customized to our foster mother and started to feel safe and secure so it was time to bring them all home.

Moma and puppy are left behind until they are ready to go home, and one lost boy was found in the area and will be joining his siblings soon. Most of the Chi have been adopted and those who are still in need are in fosters' homes, safe!!

Follow our Facebook page and you won't believe how beautiful they all are.

4 Neglected Chihuahuas found a home

Two bonded girls couldn't join their family who moved to a new place. We promised to keep them together, and so we did.

Rocky was the first boy we helped to rehome. His owner couldn't keep him, but we found him a great home that gives him love and cares for him and all his needs.

Ace was an owner surrender.  He needed training and needed a home who has time for him.

This sweet boy ended with an organization that trains dogs to be support dogs for veterans. He has his veteran who so needed loving paws to help him each and every day. We couldn't be happier.

We are 4 Chihuahuas who have lived together all our lives. Our owner decided to get rid of us for some unknown reason and left us all in a vet office. We had no record of vaccinations and had been terribly neglected. We had to walk on our nails because no one had cut them for us in such a long time. We were so frightened, we sat close together, touching each other for comfort.

Then some nice people from Friends for Life came and took us to a nice warm home and things started to change.

We're now all vaccinated and doing so much better. We're even getting our teeth cleaned at the vet on June 11th!


The rescue knows that there's probably no one who will adopt all four of us together but the rescue would like two adopters to take two each so we can still stay bonded.


Linda, the girl with the red harness and Susi, the other grayish girl will stay together. Linda likes to stand on her back legs and ask for gentle strokes. Susi is more cautious and will need time to adjust to a new environment. We estimate their age to be 8-10 years old. Remember that small breeds can live very long, up to almost 20.

will need more time

The other two are a boy and a girl: Momma and son. Momma had a tumor removed. It was cancer stage 1 so we feel she will do ok now. No meds or treatment is needed. They will be adopted together after she's healed. 

Mom - Princessa, is the most loveable little girl as is her son Justin. They love to sit on your lap and Justin loves belly rubs the most.

After they've been decompressed and understood they are safe we could find them a home.

They are living 3 together and loving every moment.

Linda, we found out, is better without the others as she was too dominant and it interferes with the other 3. So she found a home with a loving family and she gets all the attention to herself and loving it.

We visited them and they are all look awesome.!!!

From March 2021, when we opened our rescue, until June 2023, we saved and placed in loving homes 378 dogs and cats life. We try to keep in touch with most of them.

But, we can do better if you can Volunteer. Foster, Donate funds, food, and meds.

On the way to our foster


We got a call about a few puppies that needed a home because the owner couldn't care for them. (They are in the South, where we are trying to help as much as we possibly can) On a visit to the house, we discovered that the few are actually 19. Beautiful small puppies and parents who are very young themselves.

None of the dogs had ever visited the vet. We said we were willing to take the dogs, care for them, and find them loving homes only if we were allowed to spay and neuter the parents. We are delighted that the owners agreed.

Now we need to stand by our wards. There are two females and one male belonging to the owners, who are the parents. A second male came from a friend, and unfortunately, we couldn't take it upon ourselves to neuter him.

All the puppies and the older dogs will have to be vaccinated. We gave the puppies the first round of vaccine (they'll need two more rounds), they received first-time-ever flea and tick treatment, and we dewormed them. Since they are in the South and Parvo is becoming a big issue there, we will have to keep an eye, and they might need additional vaccinations. They need heartworm prevention, Rabies, Lyme, and so on.

Parents will also be fully vaccinated and fixed.

 In addition to the 19 puppies, there are 23 puppies and older dogs also waiting to come to the tri-state and start their new life. 

We can't do it without you!! Please Volunteer, Foster, and donate!!

Facebook takes care of the donation processing with no fees.
