THIS PAGE IS DEDICATED TO OUR SPECIAL POOCHES THAT HAVE LEFT THEIR PAW PRINTS ON OUR HEARTS BUT SOME UNFORTUNATELY NEVER GOT A CHANCE IN FOREVER FAMILIES. INSTEAD, THEY CROSSED OVER THE RAINBOW BRIDGE TOO SOON. AT LEAST WE KNOW THAT WE SHOWED THEM THE LOVE THEY SO GREATLY DESERVED AT THE END OF THEIR LIVES. WE LOVE ALL OUR RESCUES BUT THESE ARE JUST A FEW VERY UNIQUE ONES THAT WE WANTED TO MEMORIALIZE IN A VERY SPECIAL WAY. RIP FUR BABIES!
Our precious girl Abbey never got the chance to get adopted, but she did get into an amazing foster home with one of our officers and his family. She was blind and had cancer which eventually spread to all four lymph nodes. We were able to help extend her life with one treatment, but when it returned even more aggressively and her quality of life was diminished, we had no choice but to make the heartbreaking decision to end her suffering. At the end of her life, we were grateful that at least she was off the streets and knew what it was like to be truly loved!

Here's our old man, Viejo. He never got adopted but also got into an amazing home with one of our great fosters! He was an older dog so they knew it was probably a long term foster situation and they fell in love with him right away. As his health deteriorated they continued to care for him as if he was their own. Finally that time came, the time every animal owner dreads. Only this was harder, they were away on vacation and didn't even have a chance to say their goodbyes to little Viejo. It's never easy but we all know he KNEW he was loved as he showed them love day in and day out!
It's an extremely sad day for the Pooches in Pines family along with those at Davie Creek Animal Hospital. We are sad to say that our sweet boy Tux has crossed the rainbow bridge today in a very unexpected way. His heartworm treatments were going so well but Dr. Higgins noticed that Tux was in pain and something just wasn't right. It seemed that Tux's liver was failing and his body was just shutting down. Despite Dr. Higgins giving birth to her son a week prior, she came in to try and save sweet Tux as everyone at Davie Creek had fallen in love with him during his recovery time there. Unfortunately, Dr. Higgins performed surgery and saw a large mass which, combined with the pain he was in, a difficult decision was made to end his suffering. We all realize we can't save them all but this is the hard part of rescue and our hearts ache today for poor Tux who desperately deserved that second chance at a better life. We are SO grateful for the staff at Davie Creek Animal Hospital for showing Tux love in his last few weeks of life!
