Update: Petra now Gracie

🐾💕GOOD NEWS PUPDATE FROM PETRA NOW GRACIE’S MOM🐾💕

“Gracie gets better everyday.  She walks on a leash (sometimes) and now sits (also sometimes).  And oh my goodness does she LOVE Auggie.  She absolutely adores him. She sleeps in our bed along with Auggie and sometimes. Mariel, the cat.  (The cat and Gracie have formed a truce). 

She loves to be outside running in the yard or just laying in the sun. She lays in a “sun spot” like a cat soaking up the heat.  I think it just feels so good to be outside. She is completely potty trained.  All the neighbors are smitten (but who could blame them). Thank you so much for bringing her into our lives.  She is such a blessing.”

Gracie was one of 10 Pomeranians rescued from a backyard breeder. All were bad shape, physically and mentally. HUGE THANK YOU to Foster Mom’s Michelle Martin, Jennifer Kelly-strzepka. You have hearts of gold. To our vets and their amazing staff, Linda Abbott , DVM and Evan Kadish, DVM. Plus, Destiny’s Sister Rescue, Have a Heart’s Janice Bagnato Green, Diane Francis, their vet Dr. Butzer and staff. Thanks to Cynthia Clements for picking up nine girls at one time and transporting to Animal Clinic at Wellington Reserve. 

Destiny is honored to work with such loving, caring, dedicated, compassionate and committed fosters, rescuers, veterinarians and staff members to get all these angels to the most amazing loving forever homes. 

Pupdate: King

From King’s dad: ‘Twas a year ago today that King began his journey to Virginia. He’s wearing his winter coat in the photo on the left; his spring attire – including bandana – on the right. An ophthalmologist has been treating his dry eye and since January his coat has improved dramatically thanks to a change in food to My Perfect Pet. King would say he was “The King” before I ever showed up. But most days he wants to spend at least 30 minutes in my lap.’

This handsome guy hit the lottery with his extraordinary forever home🐾💕

🐾💕Wishing King and his dad, continued “Happy Days Ahead!”

In Memory Of: Judy Blake Walters

💗🙏Written by Brittany Mason In Honor of Zoey’s human mommy, Judy Blake Walters . RIP 🙏 ❤️

“I always loved animals since I was little and I knew I would help them I just wasn’t sure how. One day I started researching local rescues and I reached out to JoAnn Lewis Goodrich of Destiny for Dogs. I explained to her my love for animals and that I’d like to help. She said there is actually a little senior girl, Zoey, who was a stray down in Miami and she is sitting in a kennel. My mom and I couldn’t let her sit in there any longer so the next day she was sleeping in bed next to me 🤗

One morning like we had done before, we brought Zoey out to coffee. This time was different because a very sweet lady saw her and instantly fell in love with her and I knew Zoey felt the same way. Just like that she was adopted by this amazing family 💝

Zoey’s human mommy had been battling cancer, but her husband told me that since they adopted Zoey he had seen a light in his wife that he hadn’t seen in a long time.

Judy you were an amazing person filled with so much love and compassion. I’m sending love and prayers for your family while they grieve such a sweet soul.

I will be forever grateful to you, I couldn’t have asked for a better mommy for Zoey ❤️“

Pupdate: Ruby

🐾💕GOOD NEWS PUPDATE ON RUBY THE SENIOR POM FROM HER NEW MOM🐾💕

♥️“Ruby is such a love. I’m so grateful to Destiny for Dogs for bringing us together, and thank you for saving her.”♥️

Ruby the senior pom whose dad could no longer care for her. He took Ruby to Peggy Adams who could not intake her. Someone posted a photo of Ruby and her owner with a comment. Michelle Martin saw the post and immediately contacted Ruby’s owner to say she would foster. It was a long process to get Ruby healthy, plus she needed to be vetted, spayed and a much needed dental. Poor Ruby girl also had a high level hear murmur. Dr. Linda Abbott, Animal Clinic at Wellington Reserve ran tests and placed Ruby on three heart meds to relieve her discomfort.

Michelle loved and nurtured to get Ruby where she needed to be health wise and emotionally. It took months before Ruby could receive vaccines plus even longer to spay and have dental. Thanks to Dr. Abbott, staff and Michelle, this special little girl was able to have a second chance at life in a new loving forever home with her extraordinary new mom.

🌹Special thanks to all. “It takes a Village!”🌹
