i think that is it for recent news.



Oh Carol, I couldn't have that for Jimmy and Charlie. They are so happy and settled as they move towards the end of their little lives. I wouldn't want to do anything to upset that. Thanks for letting me know.


she is really mean to other dogs johanna...lizzy and jimmy are too frail for her BS..they would hate her.

Hi Carol,

Can you tell us a little bit about Molly, the little Chi who just came in. Thanks


the last i heard, koji was doing great in his new home. Keats arthritis is getting really uncomfortable for him despite the high doses of meds. we recently added laser therapy to his regime and he has been doing great with it..much more mobile, much more comfortable.
flynn is a sweet boy..he does have food guarding issue with the other dogs due to his recent starvation so we feed him separately. he is good with cats and small dogs..took him a while to like sam but she is new and a lot bigger than him so that is understandable. he remains quite fearful in strange/unknown circumstances...could be a flight risk if he gets scared. but..he is good here so he should bond into a new home too with extra care until he settles in.


Val, YES! Take precautions, order your vaccines. Your dog could pick up anything from any park and you can't bleach paws.


Hi there. Can you provide any more information on Flynn? Also, do you have any updates on Keats and Koji?

So upsetting about the Richmond rabbits having to be euthanized. The staff and volunteers there must be devastated.


For those of us who have house bunnies... Would you suggest staying away from places like Richmond...? Should we be doing foot baths and everything at home as well...?

My guys are indoors so I wasn't very worried before... but this makes me really nervous.
