Hello!  My name is Jane and I’m an extremely loving, loyal and fun girl!

History

I was adopted from a shelter about seven years ago by the daughter of my current mom/dad. When she was about to have her first baby she asked her parents, my current mom/dad to take me to live, and here I have been for the past 5 years. I’m quite comfortable here, staying mostly in a large sunroom with doggy-door access to a fairly small fenced yard.  My very early life before the shelter has made me nervous about the outside world so I’m super happy to stay at home. Though I love car trips too!

Personality

I’m … Continue reading

History

I’m 5 years old now, and have been at Willow’s Wings since I was 1. No one knows what I suffered before I came here, but I was in rough shape when I arrived—I was very emaciated/ starving, only weighed 30 pounds, and was dripping with milk, though no sign of any puppies. Whatever happened to me, it was for sure traumatic and involved someone not taking even basic care of me.

Luckily, the Sanctuary … Continue reading

History

My mom adopted me from a rescue when I was about 1 year old. I came from North Carolina, where I was found tied up to a fire hydrant on a busy street. Kids were throwing rocks at me, but someone stepped in and took me all the way to New York so I would be safe! My mom adopted me right away because she saw how cute, smart, and sweet I was. I have soft black fur, floppy ears (that sometimes stand … Continue reading

History

My owner, the wonderful woman who rescued me when I was 2 years old, passed away in February. It was unexpected and incredibly sad. We were the best of friends and I was by her side until the end. I was so lost when she died. But then her lovely daughter- who lives here in the Ithaca area–drove all the way out to Arizona where I was living, and brought me back to beautiful Upstate NY so that I could enjoy the fresh air and grass, and also because she wants to find me a wonderful new … Continue reading

History

I’m from a breeder in Kentucky. My mom adopted me at 11 weeks old to train me as a therapy dog.

Medical

When i arrived to Ithaca, our veterinarian found that I am heartworm positive.  So sad, but wow, so lucky that I landed in rescue and in a town with awesome vets to give me the best treatment possible!  After initial testing, I was brought up to Cornell Cardiology in mid-December for a cardiac ultrasound and chest x-rays, to see how advanced the disease was, and if i was a good candidate for treatment.  It was all good news!  My heart and lungs looked … Continue reading

Hello! My name is Dahlia (Dolly for short!) and I am the sweet-sweet-sweet!

History

I landed in a high-kill shelter in KY as a stray. Very bad luck for me, as many of the dogs there end up euthanized due to lack of space to house them or resources to care for them. But since I was clearly just the absolute sweetest dog imaginable, the shelter workers reached out to a rescue person in KY who reached out to CDR, and I got rescued! I am so grateful and am passionate about making every day a joyful one, and spreading happiness and smiles everywhere I go!

Personality

I am an extraordinarily sweet and happy girl who is typically pretty calm but has … Continue reading
