UPDATE: It is with sad hearts that we share the news that our foster girl, Abbey, passed away Monday evening, August 26, 2013. Abbey was rushed to an emergency vet and diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma, a very aggressive cancer of the blood vessels. She touched all our hearts with her gentle nature and courage as she endured her previous medical issue. Abbey will be remembered and greatly missed by her foster family and our rescue community.

Introducing Abbey, our Miracle Girl!! Abbey is a 10-year- old mahogany sable that came into Rescue from the Ionia shelter, where she was turned in by her owner just before Memorial Day. Unbeknownst to all of us, Abbey had a life-threatening case of canine pyometra, a disease that is found in older, unspayed females, and one which usually is fatal. Luckily for Miss Miracle Abbey, everyone from the shelter and the rescue jumped into immediate action, and got her to the vet for surgery and into foster, where she is healing and being loved and spoiled. If you are interested in giving Abbey a place in your heart and home, please fill out an application.

From Abbey: Hi! I just had a whirlwind of a holiday weekend, and I hope all that’s behind me now. I’m loving my foster family and all the attention, and I just want to stick close to these lovely new people and soak up all the love I can get! Somewhere in all the excitement I lost my coat, and I feel kind of silly without it, but it was pretty stinky and matted and had about a gazillion fleas, so I’m busy growing a new one, and I’ll be beautiful again in no time – you’ll see!!!. I’m looking for someone that wants to give a spunky senior a loving home, ’cause I’m all better now, and I sure wasn’t ready to check out yet – I’ve got lots more love and joy to spread around!
