He will be missed by all.
💔IN LOVING MEMORY OF 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…
Hi my name is Elsa and I am a beautiful “Plus” size girl. I need someone to not only love but someone to help me get my girlie figure back. Because I have been in foster care off and on for the last year, I have put on a few exra unwanted pounds. Like most large breeds this aggravates my hip issues. Please help me get back in shape. I would love to take long romantic walks on the beach with you. Please open your heart to me. Let’s get in shape and fall in love❤️
Meet Mui Mui & Minuet. They are looking for a new Forever home. Their owner passed away and these 2 have been in boarding ever since. If you can provide a home for Mui Mui & Minuet please contact JoAnn 561-313-2005 or email@example.com 🐾💕
Destiny’s dear friend and Toby’s beloved mother, Barbara passed away sadly leaving her three dogs, Duke, Pupster and Toby plus her two cats, Minnett and Mui Mui. Barbara was a great supporter of Destiny for Dogs. We have taken her fur babies (Duke, Pupster and Toby) and will find loving homes for them.
Update: Pupster and Duke are with their new loving forever homes.
During Barbara’s memorial service we met Lucy. She asked about Barbara’s babies. Afterwards Lucy went to Toby’s foster parents, Sue and Bill, to meet this special boy. It was love at first sight. Below is a picture of Lucy and her son Luke.
Meet 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.

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 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 chewy.com.
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.
A Good Samaritan saved this beautiful 1 year old kitten just before she was going to be euthanized. She has all her vaccinations, rabies, has been spayed and received a clean bill of health. If you would like to be loved by this angel please contact Sabina Salay at 702-580-9760 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Benny has joined the “Foster Failure” program…or should I say his foster family FAILED. Benny will live forever with his foster family.
Chippy is a mixed breed female, 3-4 years old, 10-12 lbs, fully vetted, up to date on shots, micro-chipped, housebroken, and good in a car and on leash. Chippy needs an “ADULT” home, NO CHILDREN, and would do the best as the only dog, however does get along with one of the dogs where she is living. Foster mom says, “Chippy can be loud sometimes and bark at strangers however has never shown any aggression.” She has a thick soft undercoat, long nose, huge ears, dainty tiny feet, small boned, long bushy tail and almost resembles a miniature wolf or coyote. Chippy has never been a biter. If you can provide a home for Chippy please contact JoAnn 561-313-2005 or email@example.com
Dear Kat & Bill,
We are truly sorry for the loss of your beautiful and loving Jackie O. She was very blessed to have you and Bill and you were equally blessed to have her. I know that you gave her everything she needed plus all the love and nurturing.
Jackie O will always remain in your loving thoughts and prayers until you meet again at Rainbow Bridge.
We love you dearly
Destiny for Dogs
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:
- Adopter needs to live within one hour of West Palm Beach.
- 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.
- 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.
All serious inquiries please contact JoAnn Goodrich at 561-313-2005 or firstname.lastname@example.org

As 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,
My name is Clover and I am a female Chihuahua Mix. I am spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots and good with dogs. If you are interested in me please contact JoAnn at 561-313-2005 or firstname.lastname@example.org
My name is Fergus and I am a male Chihuahua Mix. I am neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots and good with dogs. If you are interested in me please contact JoAnn at 561-313-2005 or email@example.com
My name is Mia and I am a Pomeranian/Chihuahua Mix. I am spayed, house trained and up to date with shots. If you are interested in adopting me please contact JoAnn at 561-313-2005 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Please read Christian’s story by clicking this link ( #prayersforchristian ) or type it in your search bar. Christian is a fellow animal lover and needs your prayers and contributions. Sometimes you need love and comfort and your pets will provide that unconditionally. This is Christian before and after his illness took over his life and as you can see his beloved friend is still by his side.
A great big “Thank You” to the members and congregation for the items collected to donate to Destiny for Dogs to assist with our pet rescue efforts. Without the assistance of our community the animals would not have a chance in life. We appreciate anything anyone can provide that will be for our rescues and just know how grateful our rescues are to have these wonderful things. Many have lived hard lives and it is our job to show them love.
Today Miss Vee was led over the “Rainbow Bridge” with the help of Destiny for Dogs. Our volunteer (Linda) told her how much she was loved, kissed her little head and hugged her until she passed over. She is now happy, healthy and whole. She was loved and will not be forgotten. Until we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge. Miss Vee you have a home there with all the other Destiny for Dog angels who are welcoming you into their forever home.
Destiny for Dog’s friend “Mildred Fier” passed away Friday night, March 18, 2016. You may not know her but you have seen her. Look at the top of our web site and you will see Aunt Millie holding Francee who also crossed over the rainbow bridge this year. They are both together now but will always be remembered by being a permanent part of Destiny for Dogs.
Aunt Millie was born on March 14, 1924 and passed away at the age of 92. She lived a wonderful long and happy life. She will be remembered by many for her wonderful deeds she has done in her life and we are happy that she will guide our sweet canine friends in the wonderful afterlife they are all enjoying together. ♥ ♥ ♥ Rest in Peace our dear friend
