Foster Mom
Highlight

Meet Katie Field! Katie is an amazing Foster Mom. We are so lucky to have her as a member of our rescue!

“I’ve been fostering for rescue for one year now. We bought our new home last year so that we could foster. I’ve always loved animals, especially dogs. Before I started fostering I volunteered and walked shelter dogs and also dogs in boarding thru the rescue. My passion is helping the abandoned and abused animals however I can. I work as an Operations Manager. When I am not at home I want to be home with all our dogs, enjoying time with them outside and cuddling with them at night. My husband is a huge help and I couldn’t rescue as many without him.”

Meet Big Girl and her Pups!

A tornado recently went through Tyler TX. While surveying the damage to a destroyed home, Big Girl was found protecting her seven 5 week old puppies beneath the devastation! Army’s Legacy is coming to the aid of the Tyler SPCA and Big Girl and her pups will be arriving in CT this coming week.

Big Girl is a 1.5 year old super sweet girl and a great mom. She and the pups will be fully vetted after they arrive.

Nobody Likes to Talk Poop

sign reading no trespooping

We all know what a gross nuisance it is to clean poop off the bottom of a shoe!

More concerning than that, no matter how careful you are, your dog’s poop could contain worms, parasites or disease. Transmitted to another dog or an adult or a child, that could cause serious illness.

Avoid the town fines. Avoid the disapproval of your neighbors.

Please be considerate of others and clean up after your dog.

Do You Go To Dog Parks?

Before you enter, Look Around!

Do you see anything that makes you uncomfortable?
Do you see poop not picked up?
What is the energy of the dogs? Playful? Tense?
Are the owners paying attention to their dogs?

Are these dogs safe?

Protect your Pets

Protecting your pets from the diseases transmitted by fleas, ticks and mosquitos is one of the greatest gifts you can give them… and yourself! Heartworm, Lyme disease, bacterias, viruses, parasites to name a few. The diseases AND the treatments can be painful and debilitating and in some cases can continue throughout the pet’s life. The costs can run from a couple/few hundred into the thousands. The cost of preventatives is worth every penny, both for your pet’s health and for your pocket!
If you are not presently protecting your pet, discuss it with your veterinarian. They will be your best resource to help determine the right preventatives to provide the coverages your pet needs.
The three minimum coverages:
Heartworm
Fleas
Ticks
