Gina’s dog, Cooper, meant everything to her children. One of Gina’s kids had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, and Cooper had bonded closely with the sick child over the years. But the entire family suffered under the hands of their abuser, and Cooper was a victim of domestic violence, too. Gina knew it was time to escape, but she wouldn’t leave without Cooper.

UPDATE: Guy the Shih Tzu

May 27, 2015

“Guy has been growing more and more frisky,” Sandi told us. “He is becoming a whirlwind of hopping, running and tail wagging. He has taught us that he knows how to fetch, loves tummy rubs and car rides. His stamina is still low so he naps often, but he is showing he is happy.” Thank you to all who rallied and supported Guy on his road to health!

How Lucky got back on his feet

Jenny’s buddy Lucky started experiencing episodes where he had trouble walking and kept falling over. After the episodes started he seemed to be tired more often than not. Jenny was seeing her friend, her cuddle buddy, her source of comfort, fade before her eyes.

For the last ten years Jenny and Lucky have been constant companions. From childhood and living with Jenny’s parents, to going to college and moving out on their own, Jenny and Lucky have done everything together. To lose her furry family member to this mystery illness was unthinkable to Jenny.
