Gino was a stray to a yard in Darlington in search of food. He was starving. He caught 3 chickens to try to feed himself. He was threatened to be shot for getting into the chicken coop. His sad eyes and malnourished body spoke to the heart of the homeowner. Though she loved her chickens very much (they even wore clothes so she really was devastated to lose them), it was clear to her that he was starving and just trying to survive. She fed him a few times off of her porch then trapped him and brought him in. Then it was learned that his job was broken so he really had been struggling in many ways to feed himself.  Note: Gino came in as an owner surrender.  He had a broken jaw and can only eat canned soup food.  HW+; male; lab mix; 26lbs; 1 yr old; 9/30

Hilda - Super Senior- Video -safe

Hilda was surrendered when her person could no longer care for her.   She is very skinny and fragile.  You can feel all of her bones, in particular her spine as you stroke her along her back.  Sweet and friendly,  she has nicely met my other small dogs.  Although she has cataracts,  she is very capable and adept at exploring around on her own in her new surroundings.  She appears to be house and crate trained and was very patient as I gave her a must needed bath today.  Note: Needs a dental. Has cataracts.  Mass below her rectum. Growth on her front leg.  6lbs; 9/7; female; no HW info.  Her person said she was 25yrs old.  The vet has aged her at 12-13 yrs.  poodle mix

Holly was brought in as stray.  She is very energetic and friendly.   She is definitely what we would call a "low-rider".   Gets along with everyone at my house.  Note: She is in foster care already with a house full of dogs and a 12 year old girl and her mother.  She was found as a stray and taken in by our volunteers.  Very friendly and sweet. Would be good with children.hw-; 45lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 9/9; female

Jasmine -VideoOct. VideoOct- Birthed Nov 11- 4 girls + 2 boys!

Update Oct 2: I brought Jasmine (Intake # 2452 -09/21/2017) home on October 2nd. Saw her in the intake building and she broke my heart.  She looked so sad and overwhelmed. I've put her in the kennel with Wyatt and they are doing well.  Wyatt plays a little too rough for her, but she is handling it with no trouble.  She just shows calm and he eventually leaves her alone. She seems much happier here and runs to me now for affecton. She's having a good time exploring the yard and stretching her long legs. There is no age estimate on her intake sheet, but she appears to be an older girl.  Her teeth are worn down on the front and her lower canine teeth are worn and broken.  The back teeth don't have a lot of plaque on them.  She has a little cloudiness from cataracts in her eyes, but can see well enough.  She has a spot on one of her rear paws that looks like an old break or a granuloma.  It's a hard place but does not cause her any mobility issues. She also has a large cyst on her side and a smaller one underneath it.  She's not been checked by the vet.  She is HW positive and will complete her doxy on 11/03/2017.  10/24: aged at 6-7 yrs old

She's an incredibly sweet girl.  She has met all dogs and new people I have introduced her to well.  She walks well on the leash.  She can get overwhelmed with new things, but comes around with a little encouragement.   She's calm and gentle and just needs a soft, warm place to spend her days.  Even at her mature age, she can still belt out a big hound girl bark!  When asked about interacting with more dominant dogs: She is in sharing her space with Wyatt (larger bully mix).  He's high energy, but not dominant.  When he us playing roo rough, she just stands there patiently until he moves on and doesn't react at all.  I don't think she has an aggressive bone in her body. Note: Jasmine was turned in as a stray. She's scared but still very sweet. She has really bad teeth.  HW+; female; 43lbs; 9/21;  Her teeth are really bad.  No aging at intake. 

More about me Medical Update Oct 24:  The vet said she looks to be middle aged, about 6-7 years old.  She looked at her eyes and said there was some age related changes, but didn’t see cataracts.  Her teeth in the front are really bad, but her back teeth looked good.  She thinks the spot on her front paw is an old injury that was left to heal on its own.  She pressed on the spot hard and we didn’t detect any discomfort from Jasmine.  She walks/runs fine on it with no limp.  It doesn’t appear to cause her any mobility issues.  She said the spot on her side looks like a big skin tag and more cosmetic than anything.  There is a smaller, pink one underneath it.  She noted a small fatty cyst, under the skin, on the opposite side in the rib cage area too.  I asked if they could be removed when spayed and she said yes.

I must admit, I was a little worried for her and was very grateful for some positive news.  So, with all the good news to celebrate, I took her to Burger King for a celebratory snack … which she heartily enjoyed!  J  And let me tell you, this girl can eat!  Jasmine is such an incredibly sweet and gentle girl.  She has met everyone and all creatures with a tail wag and a smile.  She is soooo much happier now than the sad little girl I found in the intake building a few weeks ago.  I’m so glad Margaret showed her to me.  She’s gaining her confidence and her joy back!  She can get overwhelmed with new, loud things, and will freeze on me sometimes.  But with patience and encouragement, she pushes through and comes to me for reassurance and now runs to me for affection.  This older girl still has some “pep to her step” and a very sweet, playful side!   Here’s a video I took of her today as we were leaving for the vet.  I hope you can feel her joy in this video because it sure makes my heart smile!

New mom- Nov 11!   4 girls, 2 boys

Jennie Teen Pup

She was a stray from where I live.   I've been watching her grow up, and due to people shooting animals around here I decided to pull her in.  You hear gun shots every night, it has to be at the animals.  She is great with other dogs, people.. and just about housebroken, she's learning the ropes. Note: Jennie is a sweetheart that was brought in as a stray .  32lbs; 9-10 mos old; lab mix; 11/18; HW- 

Jenny- safe

A perfect lady. Her girlfriend was just adopted so we gave her a new kennel mate. Now she has a boyfriend and they play nonstop she would be a perfect addition to any Home. Note: Jenny was turned in as a stray. She doesn't walk on a lead but is otherwise very friendly.  hw-; 32lbs; 2 yrs old; bully mix; 9/21. Cat friendly.

More about me: Our volunteers and staffers describe this petite gal as a  perfect lady! Jenny's female kennelmate  was just adopted so we gave her a new kennel mate. Now she has a boyfriend and they play nonstop! Pretty Jenny would be a perfect addition to any home because she is so friendly and loving. She's a fun, playful girl who is eager to learn new things and brush up on her leash walking skills.  Jenny is a wonderful medium size and such a striking black and white combo. If you've been wondering who a great dog would be to make your home complete, Jenny is totally up for the job.  And to her , it isn't a job at all, in fact, it's her dream come true!


Jerry was brought in by animal control as a stray. He is very scared and skittish but was still cooperative during intake.  HW+; 52lbs; lab/shep mix; 2-3 yrs old; 10/31.  

Jose- Pug/Chi -VideoOct VideoWithDominic

Hey!! Remember me??  It's Jose!  I came into the shelter as a stray 3 yrs ago and after being in foster care since then, my foster mom is hoping she can help move me into a new home...a home where I can lead a more full life and get all the attention I really crave!  Now 7-8 yrs old,  I'm a little bit on the chubby side (foster mom has SUCH fabulous snacks for me!) but I have SO much love to give.  Please read on (notes from Foster Mom) and let me know if you feel I am the perfect one for you!   

More about Jose: I think Jose deserves a better life than I can give him. I have to keep him outside in a kennel because he barks A LOT (like a chihuahua). I also can't crate him for more than a few hours because he lifts his leg and pees out the side of his crate or he poops in his crate then dances in it.  He DOES get out and runs and romps in the whole yard when I'm home, so he is not in his kennel 24/7.  He will need to be with a human companion who can let him out to potty regularly. He does get along with all dogs small and large and does not bother my cats. He does bark like a little dog can if a big dog towers over him, but my dogs are so easy going, they don't react. He will need to be in a home with an easy going adult dog if one is present.

Jose loves to ride in the car and to be with his person. He loves to sit with you on the couch or on the bed. Care needs to be exercised when picking him up. He has a small scar on his side, so he is cautious about people touching him there. Also, it will take him a while to learn to trust his new human. He does NOT need to be a in a home with children.  Also, he WILL mark in the house when he is nervous. If I bring a large male foster dog home or if he is in a new home for the first time, he will mark on the walls.   15lbs (overweight); Nov 2016; treated for HW's 2013; 7-8 yrs old; pug/chi mix.  Great with other dogs and cats.  No kids please.  On meds for seizures given 2/day ~ about $20/mo in cost.

Levi Teen Pup

Levi is a sweet pup. He was brought in yesterday as a stray.10/19;  9 mos old; Lab mix; 36.7lbs

This is sweet Lexie. I did not see how bad she was until after I gave her a bath.  She has also recently had pups.  She is very sweet.    10/19; 10 mos old- more intake info to come.  Severe mange. 


When I went by her kennel this girl was bouncing straight up in the air so I expected a spirited walk, but Lizzie was just a doll.  She stood perfectly still while I put on her pretty, pretty princess outfit, staying right beside me when I had to take off the leash to pull it over her head.  She was very quiet and affectionate and she will nuzzle right up to you for some attention.  Mild-mannered and polite, Lizzie sat with us in the office and she ignored the cats and other dogs nearby. Note: Lizzie was brought in as a stray. She is sweet and friendly.  HW-; 35lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 11/14


Update Oct 9: I've been though an awful lot.  Found roadside, hit by a car,  I was rushed to the vet where I rec'd intense care for the swelling in my brain and around my eyes.   While at the vet,  x-rays revealed I had previously suffered some type of trauma to my hind quarters as my pelvis and back leg were both fractured but had already started to heal.   I'm getting around like a real champ now!   The swelling has all but subsided and I'm feeling much, much better.  Thank you for asking.   My foster family says I am THE BEST, well foster mom certainly does, as I follow her around everywhere and simply adore her but the two males in the house, although very patient and mild mannered, make me a bit nervous so for now I am keeping my distance from them.   I am slowly allowing them to start walking me outside so we are working on building our relationship.   Foster mom feels a male had previously hurt me as I can cower around men in particular when they try to pet me but I can also be very cautious in meeting new folks in general.   I'm getting along with the other pets in the house...cats and dogs...but sometimes,  if I am feeling a little overwhelmed by them, I give them a polite warning and they nicely give me some more space.  I'm very responsive to verbal commands from foster mom as I quickly come when called and boy do I love it when she says, "Up, want to go outside?"  The yard is a happy place for me as I can get some fresh air, run and play and chase a squirrel or two.   Day to day,  my foster family is making me feel more at ease and I am gaining confidence in meeting nice folks. For now, I am thinking my ideal new home would be with females only but I've leaving my options open and hope that I can overcome my fears and feel happy in a home with both sexes.   Note: Luna was HBC and taken directly to the vet.  HW-; 3 yrs old; 8 lbs; chi/dachsi mix; 9/13; female; housebroken

Malla- sponsored for pull fees- NewJulyVideo!

December 2015, December 2015, January, March

March, May 

Malla is very sweet but very shy. She also has Demodex and Pyroderma. She is not spayed yet until her skin heals some. She is not a fear biter---I can handle her very well and do anything with her. However, she is very timid with humans. She is in my house so that she is forced to interact with me. She loves loves loves playing with a puppy foster I have now, and would really make fast progress if she were around other out-going dogs more often. (My personal dogs are old and sleep a lot, so this puppy foster is the only one interested in playing with her right now.) Her new foster mom would need to medicate her skin as well as help her become more socialized. She is a sweet girl, about 35 lbs and about 1 year old. I suspect that she never had much human interaction during her younger months. Note: Came in with Nissie and Gretel. She is friendly just scared.  hw-; 12/10/2016; 1 yr old

Update March 21: She had 2 rounds of AB before her scabby skin would heal. Since I've been using the special benzoyl peroxide shampoo, she has turned a corner.  She loves Tasha, who mentors her and plays gently with her.


Marla was turned in as an owner surrender. Due to health issues, her owner was no longer able to care for her. She’s a little skittish at the shelter but is still friendly.  HW+; 46lbs; 1-2 yrs old; bull mix; 10/31


Marshall was dropped off as owner surrender. Due to health issues, his owner was unable to take care of him any longer. He has a lot of energy and is friendly.  HW+; 40lbs; 3-5 yrs old; bull mix; 10/31

The ball hog of the year award goes to... Max! This boy knows he loves his ball. The first thing he did when he came into the oasis was grab a ball and toss it in the air. He had to pick up every toy and play with it, but his favorite was the yellow tennis ball. You can get this boy's attention with any toy and he will be the most well behaved pup in the world in hopes that you'll let him play with it. Max is a goofy boy and a big lover. He loved getting attention from all the humans, and didn't mind meeting a few cats along the way, even though he preferred to ignore them and give his handler all his attention.  hw-; 60lbs; 2-3 yrs old; bull mix; 10/10/15

Update from Jr Volunteer: excellent physical condition, pulls a lot when walking, likes to run with you, high energy, loves attention, likes hugs and cuddles, curious

Mickey seems like a very happy boy.   bully mix; 43lbs; 2-3 yrs old; 8/9; HW-

MJ Teen Pup - VideoNov

MJ is a little scared and was unsure about walking into the shelter today to get his photos but he did a lot better when he was heading back to the familiar truck for the ride home.  He is a very handsome, unique looking boy.  He was calm today and just stood and let me pet him but his foster mom said he is more active at home.  In his safe spot (i.e. foster home), he enjoys being loved on!  He is being fostered in a home with children but he tends to retreat when things get rowdy so he would probably be better with older children.  Loud noises startle him so quiet = good for MJ!  A neighbor found him with a shoe string on his neck.  He is great with other dogs and is a very happy boy.  He is best friends with his foster brother King. Excellent in home behavior, house and crate trained!  1/26; 3-6 mos old; 25lbs. HW-; Photos from end of April.
