Dodge City Feed Adoption Event

We had a great time Saturday.  We found homes for two kittens, but our big dogs were not so lucky.  However, Bleau and Snow White aren't the least bit bothered by the news!  Life is good......

These wonderful dogs are looking for a family to love them.  They are crate trained, semi house trained, and good with other dogs and kids. Unfortunately they don't like cats!  Both Snow White and Bleau tested as a weak positive for heartworms, but they have been on doxicycline and preventative so they may test negative soon! Bleau is a two year old Catahoula/Pit Mix and Snow White is a Bull Terrier mix and is also around 2 years of age. 

Swampy Paws' Volunteers are the BEST!!!  Many thanks to Melissa, Merry, Barbara, Judy, and Daniel for their dedication to the cause!

Holden's Nature Club Donation

Wow, I had the best time this afternoon meeting the members of the Holden Nature Club - Grades 2 - 4.  These energetic students held a food drive for our "guests" at Swampy Paws and the results are amazing!  In just a little over a week they raised over 300 pounds of food and treats.  All of our fur babies are so thankful to have such a caring group.

Every dollar we save by not having to purchase food allows us to rescue more abused, abandoned or injured animals of Livingston Parish.

Thank you Ms. Dawn, Holden School, and everyone involved in this food drive.  I can't wait to go back in a month or so and visit with the club and give them an update.

Sick Bay at Swampy Paws

December and January have been a bit overwhelming.  We have little Merry with a broken leg, Keely with a double knee cap surgery, Inca (the cat) recovering from a dog attack, and Daisey with fluid on her lungs and a heavy heartworm load. It is only by the grace of God that we can handle it! 

Blogger has changed its format so I am unable to get photos to load!  This is so frustrating.  I haven't blogged in a while because of their changes.  I may have to change to wordpress. 

Many thanks to those who are donating to help with the cost of Keely's surgery.  I just can't believe she lived for 7 years in pain and remained such a sweet dog.  I have arthritis in my knees and the days when I am in pain, I am not very sweet!  If I were a dog, I am sure I would have bitten someone by now.  But Keely is always glad to see people and only wants to be loved.

Please keep up with us via our facebook page.  It is much easier for me to get information out quickly.
