Angels Among Us

Our thought for the weekend ...

As some of my blog friends already know, Muzzle is involved with a UK dog rescue charity called Oldies Club, which rescues and rehomes dogs aged 7+. That's how my new old brother Jasper came to live with us.

We know many of you are in the US, so Muzzle wanted me to let you know about a few similar rescue groups she has heard of.

There's Angels Among Us Animal Sanctuary - link.

There's also the Grey Muzzle Organisation - link.

Oh (and edit), knew there would be more - there's also the Old Dog Haven - link.

She's sure there are more and will link to them if she remembers/finds them. If you know of any others helping older dogs, tell us :-) Check them out for your next doggie friend/to see if you can help them :)

We love the "oldies" and wish that all dogs had lovely homes. Muzzle sometimes (often) is in tears because dogs are being put down because there aren't enough good homes. Please think about making your next dog a rescue dog. There are breeds, ages, sizes and personalities of rescue dog to suit every nice owner.

We are all rescue dogs here and we get on brilliantly, snuggle up on the sofa together and look appealingly for treats together too.

Muzzle says rescue dogs are wonderful ... have a great weekend.

Love Minnie-Moo and an emotional Muzzle

Bringing a pet into your home is a big choice. The only sane, logical answer to obtaining a pet is through a rescue or shelter.

Buying a dog is so wrong when there are so many homeless animals waiting for forever homes.

I hope one day for ALL breeding to be illegal until ALL animals have safe and loving homes.

Every dog deserves a home and every home deserves a dog!!!

How very nice to meet you! Thank you for visiting our blog.
We wholeheartedly agree with you - rescue dogs rock!
We try to support the two rescues who helped up to find our forever home.
Like you we want every dog to have a home.
We wish all breeding would stop until all the rescues were empty! But so many humans hanker after cute puppies.
We look forward to getting to know you.
