Happy Tails: Wendy!

Little Miss Wendy found her way into New Leash on Life.  This 2 year old Chihuahua/ Papillon mix is so sweet and lovely, we couldn't pass her up.  She was grabbed by our intake directors with some big dogs, but she wasn't scared.  She is so great and sweet that she has won everyone over.

Wendy has quite the personality, and although she is a smaller breed, she isn't yappy or too barky.  She is quite simply, a very easy dog.  Wendy was just officially adopted and enjoys socializing with other dogs.  Congratulations Wendy! We are so thrilled for you!!

This past Saturday, our intake directors were busy picking dogs from Animal Care and Control to add to the New Leash family.  They picked up 5 and all currently have foster homes once the vet releases them.
For more information on each dog, please click their picture and it will transfer you to their biography.

NLOL Community

Being an all volunteer run organization, we sometimes wonder how the ends will be met, if all the dogs will be placed, and if we'll have enough volunteers to make our adoption events, fundraisers, and get togethers staffed/successful.  But then we remember that New Leash on Life is unlike any other rescue.  We are a banded group of people who love and care for our animals.  When people need encouragement, or help or a dog transported from one event to another, our community steps up and helps out. 

We are so grateful and thankful to everyone that is a part of New Leash on Life.

One of the many great things about New Leash is our community comprised of volunteers, foster homes and adopters.  We love when we see families come full circle and come back to New Leash to add additions to their families or to foster.  We really do have the best community.

 Jude's (NLOL Alum) Family not only fostered Kameko, but ended up adopting him as well!

Fernando (NLOL Alum) helps foster brother, Nick learn the ropes of being the best dog!

These are just to name a few!  Thank you to everyone who works tirelessly at finding these dogs homes!

Last Minute Saves...

All of our dogs come from rough backgrounds and we never know how close they are to being euthanized until our intake directors arrived a few Saturday's ago.  Our intake directors arrived Saturday to begin the long (usually 5 or more hour) process that it takes to pick the dogs that come into the NLOL family.  Little did they know that as they were walking into the shelter, one little pooch was being walked to the euth room.  One of the workers stopped and redirected the little sweetheart to our intake directors who immediately fell in love with her shy demeanor. 

Adorable, apartment sized Noca had no idea that her life was about to change big time.  She was pretty reserved and withdrawn while in her crate at ACC.  The intake directors took her out and spent time with her, played and just waited for her to open up, and boy, did she!  She was one of our most outgoing pups, willing and eager to meet and greet everyone.  Noca always made time for a good belly rub and quickly found her way into her forever home. 

Congratulations Noca and your new family.  We loved every minute you spent with us!
