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!

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.

Adopt before you shop! We understand that most people would prefer a cute little puppy, but we also know that you can find the same qualities and companionship in an older or special needs dog that you can in a puppy. Please consider adoption before you shop. There are thousands of lonely and hungry pets out there in desperate need of a loving home. We will be hosting a Pet Adoption Event on Friday and Saturday, October 30th and 31st from 10am to 6pm. So if you're looking for an addition to your family, please pay a visit and you just might fall in love. There will be a small adoption fee that goes to "Glimmer of Life" to help pay for the cost of spaying/neutering and any other health care that may have been required at the time of rescue.

So come join us, and have a HAPPY HOWL-O-WEEN!!!
