Chloe is adopted! She is a petite (only 20 pounds!) sweet four-and-a-half year old dog we rescued from China in January.  She and another dog were flown here after a volunteer rescued them while teaching English in China. Chloe is housebroken and gets along with other dogs after a slow introduction. She loves people but is shy at first. Chloe had a rough beginning to life but she is sweet and gentle. 



Another dog that got adopted is Eisenhower. She is a sweet dog literally rescuedfrom the expressway that she was named after. Eisenhower

To make an appointment to visit Rollo or Eisenhower, please fill out the adoption application and you will be contacted. Make sure to indicate which dog you are interested in.

Also, please help us save two dogs from China.  As you probably know, in China they eat dogs and do not generally consider them family pets.  A couple in Suzhou, China, rescued two dogs from the streets.  Chloe, on the left, is four years old.  She lived with a pack of dogs without heat and without any attention or love.  Rollo, on the right, is a three month old puppy.  He looks like a Border Terrier mix.  A surprising kind of street dog.  He was found on the side of the road, dirty, hungry and just a baby.

The couple who rescued them is determined not to leave the two dogs in China.  There is no safe place for them to go, and they would die on the streets.  The couple, graduate students who are spending nine months teaching English in China, want desperately to save these dogs and get them to the US where they can find homes of their own.  Homes where they will be treated as members of the family.  In China, that will not happen.

Please donate any amount to help us save these two dogs.  We are determined to help them get to safety and get loving families who will keep them forever.  Look at their faces and know that you can help us save them.  You can donate below and note that your donation is for Chloe and Rollo.
