Mai Mai – Good News Update

💕🐾Mai Mai the senior Shih Tzu’s, Good News Update🐾💕

Mai Mai’s beloved owner passed away three years ago. Mai Mai and her sisters were given to a trusted employee to love, nurture and care for them. Unfortunately, Mai Mai was given away then ended up at PBCACC. Her new owner didn’t want her anymore. In three years this once beautiful, healthy and very much loved little girl ended up dirty, matted, skin/eye issues, rotten teeth, tumor and cyst. Thanks to Mai Mai’s original and beloved owner’s daughter, she was rescued from the shelter and provided outstanding medical care by Dr. Abbott, Animal Clinic at Wellington Reserve and her dedicated staff. Mai Mai had to have 21 teeth removed, plus surgery to remove a tumor on her neck, a cyst on her face, plus skin treatment.

Thanks to Heidi Garcia for not only assisting Dr. Abbott with Mai Mai’s surgery/treatment but for transporting her to the most amazing new parents on the west coast of Florida. Neither heavy rains or bad traffic prevented Heidi and her husband from placing Mai Mai in her new mom, Nettie’s loving arms where she so belongs. Mai Mai now has a new brother, Willie and sister, Trixie which were also rescued by Nettie and Yuan.



Special thanks to Joy Drasher, The Clip Joint for babysitting plus groomimg Mai Mai which was very difficult due to her condition.


Nettie provided this message from Mai Mai:

“Ok I think I need the biggest bed in the house? I think I going to LOVE ❤️ it here.” Mom says, “Mai Mai had a new bed that she came with, however, I guess she likes the one she chose? Like Goldie Locks, this one is hard, this one is to soft, but this one is just right (which happens to be brother, Willie’s).  I am happy she likes to eat even with the loss of 21 teeth.”

As we always say, “It takes a village to save a life and find an amazing loving forever home.”

Thanks to each and every one who touched Mai Mai’s life and cared enough about her to go that extra mile.

We are wishing Mai Mai and her new family, “Happy Days Ahead!”   


Update on Prince who is now Henry from his family:

I hope all is well. I thought you might like an update on little ‘Prince’ who was ultimately renamed Henry!

He has settled in beautifully. He and Hector are best buddies – he is everything we hoped for and more!

Also our vet believes he is closer to a year old than two years old.

Finally did you know that he is profoundly deaf? It is not an issue for us as he sticks with big brother Hector all the time and we have kitted him with a collar buzzer so we can call him when we need him. He is leaning sign language too.

I don’t know what happened to the poor fellow but this might explain how he got lost.

Anyway I will s bd you some pictures. And thank you for connecting us to our precious pup!

Lola is a 3 year old, 36 lbs purebred English Bulldog. She is  very affectionate with people and is good with other dogs. However, Lola is your typical bossy assertive female bulldog. As long as she’s kept in check and not given complete freedom to do whatever she wants she’ll be fine. 


Lola is fully vetted, spayed, up to date on shots, microchipped, heartworm negative, urine clear (no signs of bladder stones). She will however need to revisit potty training. Foster mom advised that Lola is a quick study and has not been having accidents when supervised. 


Lola was rescued from the shelter where she came down with kennel cough and is now receiving treatment with antibiotics. Lola has no other health issues other than regular English Bulldog hygiene (cleaning of wrinkles, etc.).  Once over her cold, Lola will have a dental prior to her adoption. 


Please contact JoAnn 561-313-2005 or for additional information or to meet this charming gal.


Sooo thrilled for Rocky now Brudder. Both Brudder and Greta were adopted by Chuck and Michael from Destiny for Dogs.

Thank you Sue and Bill for fostering and delivering Brudder to his new parents in Rockledge.

Dr. Abbott and Staff for the awesome vetting and cared received.

Love to all❤️



Always in our Hearts.. Hopscotch

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to inform you, Hopscotch went to Rainbow Bridge yesterday. Her little heart finally gave out. Dr. Hedges said Hopscotch went peacefully with her foster mom by her side.

Hopscotch received the best care, TLC and quality of life. At least she didn’t die alone in the dumpsters where she was found.

Special thanks to Dr. Hedges, Sandy Ames, and Hopscotch’s foster family for all they did for this special girl who fought to live a normal life, even only for a brief time.

Until we meet again … always in our hearts.

“Frankie has since had Pancreatitis and has been diagnosed with Cushing’s. He still bites but it comes in waves. We consider them our tattoos. He doesn’t take his insulin shots well, but what are we going to do? He has to have them But by and large he’s a sweetheart. Follows us both around and cuddles when he isn’t crazy. Somebody’s gotta love him and we do♥️”


My dear friends adopted Frankie after fostering him. At the time Sharon and Mel took Frankie in to foster he was diabetic and a biter. They have done soooo much for Frankie. He would have died without them. Sharon & Mel are truly the definition of “Rescue Angels.”

Dear T-Bone,

We did our best to provide you a second chance at life. You were so loved by all who touched you.💕

We took you for a long ride in the car, listened to music, you ate cheeseburgers, Dr. Abbott and her staff gave you yummy treats, until it was time for you to go. I spoke to you softly, told you how much you were loved and held you closely, until you went peacefully. We were all with you while you crossed over the Rainbow Bridge🌈

Run free and happy dear T-Bone. No more suffering, no more pain, no more being neglected.

When you left, you took a piece of my heart. Until we meet again…

Animal Clinic at Wellington Reserve

dr-abbottMeet the Professionals of Animal Clinic at Wellington Reserve and Destiny for Dogs new Veterinarian of choice
Dr. Linda Abbott

Dr. Linda Abbott has always been crazy about animals. As a child she was usually raising a baby bird, playing with her pets, or volunteering at the local veterinarian’s office, so it seemed like going to veterinary school was a natural choice. She graduated from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1989 and moved immediately to Florida to escape the snow. She has been working with dogs and cats in various locations in Florida since that time. Most recently she started another veterinary practice on Northlake Blvd. She sold that practice and moved back to Kansas briefly, only to return after only one horrible winter! So now she is happy to be back in Florida and excited to be opening Animal Clinic at Wellington Reserve!

Dr. Abbott has been a foster parent and is the proud adoptive mother of Summer, a human, and her four furry children: Poochie, Maxx, Popcorn, and Lily. She likes to go to Orlando and ride roller coasters( when it’s not too hot or crowded). She also loves jet skis, antique cars and scary movies.

Dr. Abbott is passionate about animal rescue. She is always picking up strays, fixing them up and finding them homes. She has worked with many local animal rescues such as Big Dog Ranch, Adopt a Cat, Luv a Pet, Animal Care and Control, Second Chance and Pet Haven and will continue to help them as much as possible in her new office.

Sadie Needs Help with Medical Procedure


In February, my husband Zach and I decided it was time to add a furry member to our family. After many weeks of searching, we met Sadie at a local Pet Supermarket, through the rescue Destiny for Dogs.  Sadie was rescued off the streets, where she came in contact with forms of bacteria, viruses, and illnesses.  Unknown to us, Sadie spent a majority of her life struggling to breathe, on and off over 20 antibiotics, and forced to go through procedure after procedure.

In May, we were woken suddenly to Sadie again, struggling to breathe, but we knew this time it was life threatening. After spending 2 days in an emergency ICU, we took her home with no answers.  Over the past 6 months, we have met with specialists, tried additional antibiotics and medications, only for Sadie to continue to decline.  After an additional emergency visit last week, we met Dr. Armstrong who proposed a different medical path for Sadie, one that no other specialist has tried.  We completed once again, an expensive procedure, a CAT scan with IV contrast.  FINALLY, we believe we have a plan to move forward.  But we have a problem, combined between Destiny for Dogs and our personal expenses; we have spent over $10,000 on Sadie.  Sadie needs to have a sample taken from the infected part of her lungs and wash out the infected area in her nasal cavity. These two procedures are going to cost approximately $3,000.

Sadie has a special place in our hearts and is a treasured member of our family, but we have poured everything we can into her.

Please consider donating to her causes, every little bit counts.  Help us save Sadie and give her a life she has never known, a life free from infection, illness, and doctors’ visits.  Time is critical; she needs this procedure as soon as possible.

Hopscotch in Hospice

hopscoth-03Hopscotch is a 9 week old puppy found in the garbage and taken in by Destiny for Dogs.  Hopscotch has a heart condition and she will sadly “outgrow” her heart within 9 months.  Hopscotch has gained 1 pound since being rescued.  The vet and staff are taking very good care of Hopscotch and Hopscotch will remain in her foster home and we will all ensure that whatever life she has on this earth will be happy and full of love.

Many thanks to a very special someone for donating the funds for Hopscotch’s tests and offering to assist with her monthly meds.  We are still in need of assistance with Hopscotch’s vet visits. Destiny will be sending special food monthly via

Please keep this darling girl in your loving thoughts and prayers.  Please don’t worry about Hopscotch as her Hospice parents will not let a day go by without her feeling love, tenderness and happiness.

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of Hopscotch’s life.

Happily Ever AfterUpdate from Charlie’s new family…”Here is a picture of Mr. Charlie and my two girls.  He has really been a really good dog.  He doesn’t know he is 15 years old.  He has fully recovered from all his illnesses and has put on a couple of pounds.  He likes his life now and is very happy and very active.  He is a very happy dog.”


Joey 05Joey 03

Joey is a 3-year old Corgi-Chi Mix who may be facing the unthinkable – to be sent to the Rainbow Bridge for lack of a stable, loving and permanent home.  For his entire life, he has either been adopted and returned, or bounced from foster home to foster home which none have been able to devote the time, patience and care he needs to learn to live with his special needs.  He has never known true love.

This sweet, lovable, cuddle-bug of a guy can’t process information like most dogs and is easily over stimulated.  He will need to be on medication for life, and is currently working with a veterinarian/behaviorist in Palm Beach to help him learn how to comfort himself and stay calm.  Most of all, he needs a human who is as special as he is and who has the desire to help him live up to his potential.  It is what he deserves!

Joey’s current foster can no longer keep him and boarding is out of the question due to his unique needs.  The lack of stability is exaggerating the affects of this chemical imbalance and his current foster family has little time to devote to his behavioral training.  In short, Joey is out of options and out of time unless we can find him a human who can and will love him for life.

Joey is full vetted and current on vaccinations.  These are his special adoption needs that Destiny for Dogs wants to maintain:

  1. Adopter needs to live within one hour of West Palm Beach.
  2. Adopter must be willing to travel to West Palm Beach at least 2 times a year to meet with the veterinarian/behaviorist who has been working with Joey.
  3. Ideal home is one or two adults (seniors or retirees preferred), no children and no other pets.  If grandkids visit it would be best for Joey to be in a separate room so he can stay calm.

In Loving Memory of Cornelia Perez

Cornelia PerezAs the shock of losing a beloved friend, my voice has failed me until now.  The world, my world, the rescue world from Vero Beach to our Rescue Destination and beyond gave Heaven back Cornelia Perez on May 15th, 2016.  She was lifted from this earthly life surrounded by her beloved husband, children, dogs, the love and prayers of friends and admirers from every walk of life.

As grief has dulled into an ache to hear her voice one more time, I have dedicated these past hours, days to her words, all that she inspired and taught me about what rescue really means to the animals.  While rescue has long been my passion and has brought me joy in untold quantities and forms – what I will forever be thankful for is Cornelia.  Cornelia brought me hope, inspiration and absolute determination that I could do this.  Never by myself; but with her belief in me and guidance she was the strength and the wisdom out of which my Destiny for Dogs became a reality.

Cornelia Perez was, and will always be, the unsung hero of my heart.  She would never accept praise, applause or accolades she so well deserved in life.  She knew, and assured all of us that our best way to show appreciation of her is to dedicate our hearts and souls to the animals.  Many of us have followed in her footsteps; few of us will ever fill her shoes.

I know I speak for everybody in our corner of the rescue world…she is greatly missed.

Rest in Peace our sweet angel and continue the care of our babies that have crossed over the rainbow bridge that will need your continued love.

All my love to you my dear friend,

JoAnn Goodrich
