   Our newest dawg, Molly (previously named Hope), is an adult Border Collie. She became one of our dawgs on September 22, 2012; her birth date was January 2007.

Comments from her foster mom before she came to live with us: "She is a great girl whose owner had to go out of state and was not able to take her (or his other two dogs) due to personal circumstances resulting from a divorce. She is house trained, does well when left alone in the house and is very friendly. Hope gets along great with other dogs, cats and bunnies. She is smart and lovable."

   Cindy and our new Australian Shepherd, Lexi. Lexi is a Katrina dog, rescued from New Orleans by START:

Lexi was one of our Katrina dogs rescued. She had come up her last November 2005 with her litter of pups... Lexi is about 1 1/2 years old. She weighs about 35 lbs or so... She hopefully will never need to live through another experience like Katrina again.
