Glimmer of Life Small Dog Rescue is Up & Running!


We are excited to announce that our small dog rescue, Glimmer of Life, has just been approved for 501(c)(3) status! After 2 long years of hard work, we are finally official!

Glimmer of Life is a 100% non-profit small dog rescue dedicated to saving the lives of sickly and injured animals whose devastating health conditions would have caused them to be euthanized anywhere else. We find them, we fix them up, and we adopt them out. Check out our many small rescue dogs for adoption on GlimmerOfLife.com!

And please remember...adopting a rescue dog is a great responsibility. They will require a lot of your attention and patience! So please make sure that you are ready for this type of commitment.

Also...please be realistic. We do this out of the goodness of our hearts because we love all dogs - no matter what size, shape, or color, and we hope that you do too. So please do not e-mail us asking for a 2 lb. Yorkie puppy with a babydoll face to adopt, because that's not gonna happen! Let's be realistic about the types of dogs that people no longer want. We rarely get puppies (especially 2 lb. Yorkies) because everyone wants those - it's the older ones that nobody wants. So if you REALLY want to make a difference in the life of a sweet and helpless creature who will give you unconditional love and affection, then adopt a dog today - for the right reasons. But do not request a puppy - you're not doing anybody a favor.

Hope the shelter's doing well and finding homes for lots of little beauties. Glimmer of Life is helping an underserved shelter population, and good on you for that! October is Adopt-a-Dog month, but any time is right to find a forever home.

Good for you and for all those dogs who need your help and the help of all the world.

This is fantastic. I walked by a woman outside the grocery store who had teacup puppies for sale and I had to buy one because I was scared what they'd do with them otherwise. Shelters like this should help a lot.

Am I missing something? How can you be a 501c3 rescue and sell puppies too? Where do you get these "teacup" puppies if not from breeding? Rescue is about saving animals, NOT breeding them!
