Final story about our friends from Gabbs

It’s been quite a journey for the dogs and for many of us. For the dogs, the journeys continue.

Best Friends Animal Sanctuary has posted wrap-up articles and photos on their Web site with updates about some of the dogs.

Thank you for all of your help, encouragement and support.

We wish each and every dog a happy, healthy, comfort-filled new life!

Warmly,
Shannon

Update from Best Friends and…..puppies?

Earlier this week, we heard from staff at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary that the four Gabbs dogs arrived safe and sound and are settling in. They reported that Nosey, Charles and Squeeky were all in their crates trying to pretend that they were invisible. Daisy was out pacing a bit but was responding when staff fed her treats.

Later in the day, the dogs were in the outdoor runs. Daisy seemed to perk up when she saw staff and was very attentive as she walked around - she would come to the fence, take a treat, walk away, come to the fence, take a treat, walk away, etc...

A few final stories from Camp Reno!

Although Camp Reno officially closed its doors last Friday, I want to share a few more nice stories about some of the dogs who were transferred to other facilities last week.

Wednesday proved to be a busy day as Steve Markwell from The Olympic Animal Sanctuary arrived to pick up five of our more socially challenged dogs. His facility is located on the Olympic Peninsula in Forks, Washington, and specializes in working with dogs who have lived on the streets -- including those from fighting bloodlines and those who have generally been abused.

Camp Reno closes

Yesterday only four dogs remained at Camp Reno. Two of them, Byron and Honora, were transported to the Santa Cruz SPCA; the remaining two dogs will stay temporarily at the Nevada Humane Society until they can arrange transport to Best Friends Animal Society, probably early next week.

Read more about Honora and Byron in this Santa Cruz Sentinel article.

More details and updates coming soon!

From socialization to relocation

The dogs are truly doing so well these days. Even Nosey, the shyest of them all, is out and walking around, visiting the volunteers and his dog friends, and getting brushed and petted. They have all come so far!

This means that things at Camp Reno are moving rapidly from "socialization" to "relocation." Our kennels are emptying as rescue groups arrive to bring our furry friends to their new living situations -- and one step closer to being adopted into loving, permanent homes.

Eddie is in the house!

You may remember that when the team originally went to the ranch in Gabbs on January 23, we were unable to catch one dog. Eddie was running loose and eluded us by staying far away while we were on site. He only came to take shelter in the out-buildings when he saw that we were long gone.

Fantastic news from Camp Reno! Allie, Betty and Red left Camp Reno a short time ago for Southern California!

Awesome EARS volunteers Lynn and Al Frischmann answered the call this week when we were looking for volunteers to drive three of our Gabbs dogs to Southern California.
