animal rescue: In Search of a Perfect Dog - 10/16/11 01:46 PM
Just as there are no perfect people, there is no perfect dog but author Gary Shiebler tells the funny and sometimes heartbreaking stories of all the "less than perfect dogs" that he has shared his life with since he was a child. As someone who volunteers with our animal rescue groups here in Brevard, NC, and mom to two rescue dogs, Ace and Sunny, I related to so many of the stories Shiebler tells, especially the ones about the dogs he met while working at an animal center. I found myself laughing out loud at some of the stories...and crying through (6 comments)
Maggie is a very sweet, blue pit who has lived her life with a congenital defect that left one of her front legs severely deformed. Her other leg which bore the weight is bowed from the stress and is deteriorating. She was rescued recently by Charlie's Angels Animal Rescue in Brevard, NC. The fact that she had managed, somehow, to live was a miracle. But the true miracle is a family on the other side of the state who has stepped up to adopt her and give her a better life...a life she deserves. This family already has (2 comments)
animal rescue: It was Penny's lucky day! - a story of animal rescue in Brevard, NC - 04/21/11 07:14 PM
When the call came in to the volunteers with Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue (CAAR) in Brevard, North Carolina, it wasn’t all that unusual. Like so many of the calls the organization receives, this was a call for help. Someone had found six puppies at the Transylvania County land fill. For the past two years, one of the land fill employees had been trying to gain the trust of an adult female dog who had made the land fill her home. He fed her and bought her a dog house to provide her with better shelter, but he could never gain enough (3 comments)

animal rescue: Animal Rescue in Brevard, NC - 09/03/10 02:28 PM
About a year ago, I rescued a puppy from a busy road in the Brevard area. That's when I first learned about our county animal shelter and the abandoned and abused animal population here in Transylvania County. Our shelter is an old, sad building with extremely limited space for all the dogs that wind up there. When a dog is brought to the shelter, there is a 5 day grace period to allow the owner to claim the animal. If the dog is not claimed, and the shelter fills up (which is practically every day), that dog can be euthanized for (2 comments)

animal rescue: Winter weather means special care for pets! - 02/15/10 11:29 AM
Cold Weather Animal CareBetween our weekly snows and temperatures in the single-digits, winter has been brutal this year. For animals living outside, sometimes even their fur coats aren't enough to keep them alive. A few simple steps can help protect your animals during cold temperatures. Please review these cold weather tips and keep your pet safe: • Keep pets inside. If animals can't be inside, provide a warm, comfortable place. Face shelter away from wind and provide a flap or door to help keep the animal's body heat inside. • Bedding is essential. It insulates the animal from the snow and (0 comments)

animal rescue: Owner Surrender - Transylvania County Animal Shelter, Brevard NC (Asheville area) - 12/28/09 05:38 PM
This bundle of love needs a hero...fast! Big Boy is what the shelter thinks may be an American Bull Dog /Hound mix who was loved and well cared for by his owner. Sadly, his owner has been hospitalized with health issues and can no longer care for his four-legged friend. Now, through no fault of his own, Big Boy is alone and wondering why his world has suddenly been turned upside down. To make matters worse, since he was surrendered by his owner, Big Boy does not get the usual 5-day pass and can be euthanized at any time. The shelter workers (3 comments)

animal rescue: Husky Needs Your Help - 12/13/09 08:18 PM
This handsome boy is currently being fostered but is in need of a rescue group, a more long term foster family, or better yet...a permanent home. He had been wandering the Rich Mt and Cedar Mt area (near Brevard, NC) for months. He's a happy guy...a little thin..but that's easily fixed. We don't know a lot about him except that he isn't neutered...but please share this info with anyone you know. Especially any one who is connected with a Husky rescue group. Thanks for your help!
Thanks for everyone's comments, reblogging, and support!

animal rescue: Charlie has a forever home! - 11/30/09 10:25 AM
For the last week, we have been caring for a wonderful dog named Charlie while his foster parents were out of town for Thanksgiving. He was rescued as a stray and orignally they were just going to foster him until we could find a permanent home. But they just called to let us know they are back in town and have decided to keep Charlie forever! I'm so happy for them....and for Charlie. He's a wonderful dog and we've had a blast with him. If our life as Realtors was a little more normal, we would have kept him in heartbeat. (4 comments)
animal rescue: Brevard NC - wonderful dog needs rescue - 11/21/09 11:20 AM
What a face! Today's featured dog was rescued by a Good Samaritan and taken to the vet already.

animal rescue: Looking for Rescue or a Permanent Home - 11/19/09 07:46 AM
Last week, as I was about to cross a street in downtown Brevard, NC I spotted a small dog crossing from the opposite direction....right in front of a semi truck. Luckily the driver also spotted the dog and avoided hitting him. The little brindle dog, with long lanky legs and paws that he hadn’t quite grown into, came over and sat at my feet. Being a dog lover, I couldn't walk way. He seemed so lost. I tried all day to find who he belonged to but eventually took him home with me for the night. The next day after a (0 comments)
