This post is in memory or Peaches, a K-9 PALS Sanctuary Dog. A year and a half ago, Peaches was abandoned in the county stray shelter by the so-called caregiver who was supposed to take care of Peaches after her owner died, but kept her for just five months. Peaches was in a terrible state of being stressed by the death of her beloved owner, and then being abandoned in a shelter. K-9 PALS was called to provide her veterinary care and upon seeing her plight, rescued her into K-9 PALS, and subsequently into our Sanctuary Program. Peaches had a wonderful life in a loving foster home for the last year and a half of her life, with high quality vet care thanks to our supportive donors. Peaches just went over the Rainbow Bridge to be with her beloved owner Mrs. Gilmore. Rest in Peace Peaches and Mrs. Gilmore, and in our hearts forever.

This post is in memory of Foz. Foz's owner abandoned him at the county stray shelter after finding out Foz had cancer. K-9 PALS rescued Foz out of the shelter and took him into our Sanctuary Dog Program which provided him with his forever foster home and his veterinary care. The vets all said Foz would have two months of life left. But Foz defied the odds and lived another ten wonderful months. Thank you to Mark and Elsa for making Foz part of your family. RIP, Foz.

Adopted. Happy Tails to you little Berkley Bear!
