168 (& welcome 2012!)

January 11, 2012

With the help of our shelter-rescue partners, short-term fosters, long-term fosters, transporters, crossposters, supporters and friends ….

2011 was an absolutely awesome year for Bonnie Blue Rescue!

But before I share our AWESOME NEWS with you …. let’s take a look back!

In 2009, Bonnie Blue Rescue had 5 foster homes and rescued 52 dogs.

In 2010, Bonnie Blue Rescue had 14 foster homes and rescued 93 dogs.

And 2011? 2011 was an even more amazing year than that!

In 2011, Bonnie Blue Rescue utilized 32 foster homes and rescued 168 dogs!

Even cooler than that? Of those 168, 36 were special needs pups –

5 came from a cruelty case in Mobile, AL

6 required major surgery while in the care of Bonnie Blue Rescue

22 were heartworm positive & went through heartworm treatment

15 were super seniors.

GO TEAM!

I am so very proud to be a part of the Bonnie Blue Rescue crew. I am proud to be a part of an organization who helps all pups regardless of breed, age, disability or special needs status. Who goes above and beyond to save the pups that other rescues walk away from, or ignore. And I am so, so proud of the incredible volunteers who work tirelessly to continue to support our small organization with your volunteer hours, crossposting help, networking assistance, donations, love and support.

From the bottom of my heart — THANK YOU — rescue would not be possible without you.

We cannot wait to see what is in store for 2012!

 

Considering fostering? Join us in 2012. The more fosters we have, the more pups we can save!

Axel Rose: Take 2

January 25, 2011

After one LONG roadtrip from LA to MD,

Sweet Axel Rose has finally made it to foster care!

And he has already made himself right at home!

Axel Rose is a 5 month old Catahoula Leopard Dog. He is housebroken, cratetrained, neutered, up to date on vaccinations and will be microchipped prior to adoption. Axel is deaf, but it doesn’t slow him down at all. This happy-go-lucky boy is content to romp and play with his foster sister in the yard or snuggle on the couch w/ his foster parents. Sweet Axel is looking for an extra special forever family to love him to pieces.

If you’re interested in adopting this handsome guy, please email us at bonniebluerescue@gmail.com to request an adoption application!

Axel Rose

December 21, 2010

Sweet Vivi is no longer the newest BBR foster puppy ….

meet our “newest” new addition, Axel Rose!

Axel is a handsome Catahoula Leopard pup who reminded us so much of Checkers

(a sweet guy we had in rescue earlier this year)

that we couldn’t say no!

If you are interested in offering this sweet boy a foster or a forever home, please email us at bonniebluerescue@gmail.com and request an application!
