Willow

Willow has found his forever home!

Willow was found in a Turkish forest - this is a place the city shelters often leave dogs to starve when they are overflowing. He did not stand a chance surviving long. After many months at safe boarding, Willow finally got to take his freedom flight to SFO in December 2020. He is now living with his loving Mom, Dad and big sister, Summer, in Seattle!

From his new family: “Willow joined our family on New Years Eve, and we are so happy to have him as part of our pack. Since being too scared to come out of his crate at SFO, Willow has blossomed into the silly and loving dog he is. He's still a bit unsure about strangers, but recently took treats from some nice folks at the dog park, so he's making progress everyday! His favorite activities now include stealing his sister's toys, going to the dog park, and going on long nature walks. We love our little low-rider pup and am so thankful to Rags2Rescued for rescuing him and putting him in our home!”

Maggie (fka Honey)

Maggie, fka Honey, has found her forever home!

Honey is truly as sweet as her name suggests. Abandoned in a cemetery to fend for herself, she was found there with another dog who sadly did not make it. Before Honey could be harmed and suffer the same fate as the other dog, the volunteer scooped her up and took her with her. Unfortunately after developing uveitis, Honey became partially blind. Uveitis is a painful inflammatory eye condition that can harm a dog's vision. As if all this was not enough, she also was later diagnosed with meningitis and could not walk as a result. After being treated for both conditions, Honey has made an amazing recovery and can now happily walk, run and play again! Even although her sight is still impaired, she can see a little and it doesn't slow her down one bit nor does it impact how joyful she is! She knows she has a second chance and this survivor girl is grabbing it with all four paws!

She arrived to SFO in November 2020 and into the arms of her new loving family.

From her new family: “Since joining our family in October, Molly has made quite the impact on our lives. From day one we have felt she was always meant to be part of our family. She joins us for weekend getaways that have included visits to some of our favorite destinations like Carmel, Point Reyes, Apple Hill, Sonoma and Baker Beach. She has not only stolen our hearts but also those of our friends and family. She loves long walks, removing squeakers from her toys, car rides, hands (to pet her), her blankey that she carries around the house and spending quality time with her new family. We look forward to the many more milestones and events that will include our Molly girl.”

Lido (fka Fluffy)

Lido, fka Fluffy, has found his forever home!

Lido was rescued from an unsafe city shelter, he has now found his forever home in Sacramento, CA! 

From his new family: “Since we adopted Lido in October, we have seen him grow from a scared, confused dog into a pup that really understands he is home. He is so gentle and sweet, we can’t believe at one time someone let him live on the street. He loves boiled chicken, rides in the car, and his snuffle mat, and he makes us smile every single day. Rescuing a dog is not an easy thing to do, but we are so grateful that Rags2Rescued chose us to be Lido’s forever family, and we can’t imagine life without him!”

Duke

Duke has found his forever home!

Duke has the most gentle demeanor and he also wins our award for the pinkest and longest tongue ever! His tail is pretty awesome too and once you see the regal wag of it you'll know why his name is Duke! Our guy was found at a government run shelter after being dumped there because of an injury to his hind leg. Like so many of our rescued dogs, we aren’t sure what caused this injury. When we first met Duke, we immediately fell in love with his swagger and overall positive vibe. Duke had parvovirus when he was first rescued, but that didn't stop him! With the help of our vets, he fully recovered. Then, when the vet did an x-ray of his hind leg, we discovered he had a piece of metal stuck in there irritating his prior injury site and most likely from a surgical attempt to fix the past injury that proved unsuccessful. If left alone, the metal could potentially cause further damage and infection in the future. After building his immunity for months, the metal was removed by our vets.

Duke was adopted by his loving family in September 2020
