Welcome to the Good Life, Peggy Sue!


If you've ever really wondered about the rescue saying "Fostering Saves Lives", we'd like to tell you a little story about a sweet 7-year-old beagle/lab mix named Peggy Sue. Peggy Sue was surrendered to a rural shelter while she was still nursing a pup. But the shelter environment was scary for Peggy Sue, and she was deemed "too timid" to be adoptable. And so that pup was taken from Peggy Sue, and Peggy Sue found herself scared and alone, and marked "urgent" on the shelter's euthanasia list. We received multiple emails from multiple rescue people asking if we could save her, but without an open foster home or anywhere to house her, we didn't think we could. But then our wonderful foster parents Sandy & Mike offered to foster her - even though they just took in another brand new foster dog just this week. And so, thanks to them opening up their home to a second foster dog, we could save Peggy Sue's life!

Peggy Sue is now safe and sound in her foster home, and shows no signs of being timid or scared at all. She's wiggly and happy and so so sweet. She will not be ready for adoption for several weeks, as she will need to be spayed once the vet says she's physically ok. We're just getting to know her, but so far she's good with other dogs and a big sweetheart. A huge thanks to Sandy and Mike to making room to foster one more dog, and to the transport team that helped her get to safety!

Welcome to Young at Heart, Peggy Sue! It's all love and a Good Life from here on out.
