Thank you for the referal.

Response to PGAA Financial Help Dear all of my dog friends, I am sending this wonderful list to you for future reference. Ron, you were so kind to send this to me. I support many animal orgs so they should all have this list. The service dog already had the surgery but it was an emergency procedure so there was little time to plan. My friend does have some pet insurance and others are working it to see if the cost might be mitigated. In these troubled times, I am so appreciative to see how many responded to my plea for assistance. kitty, I am still reaching out but I can make some of these calls if other attempts do. It pan out. Ron, pls send me some info on your organization and I will see if I can scrounge up a few dineros! Thanks all. elizabeth

Necessary Re-homing.  I will be surrendering Pancho and Daniel to the shelter where I got them from 3 ½ years ago. Despite everyone’s support and encouragement, -my sincerest gratitude to all- I could not find a home for them on my own so I will return them to the shelter. This is a no-kill shelter and they promise to try their best to place them together.
I will miss them very much they have been a source of joy, my constant companions and a source of comfort through the worst and saddest period of my life.
I pledge to donate $500 to the Bergen County Animal Shelter and other rescue shelters including yours in large part because this search has shown me how immense is the problem of rescue animals and the devotion of the many workers and especially the volunteers who work tirelessly to shelter and foster these animals.Thank you so much

From A Fellow Blogger: My overriding belief is that we are all in this together.  One of my dreams when I started Tampa Bay Pets Online is that it will help others around the country to do the same in their areas. I have been blogging in the pet niche for years and it is large, but I sometimes think we are just preaching to the choir, and not really reaching the thousands of people who have pets and don’t blog. That’s what makes sites like your so special. Jodi at Tampa Bay Pets Online

I was looking for some tips for moving with pets and came across your helpful page ( Your links brought me to some really good information about car tips and more – thanks! My one daughter, Mary, is the biggest pet lover I know.

She wanted me to share it with you as a thank you and thought it would make a great addition to your page under “travel”. Would you mind including it? I think other pet owners could learn a lot from it as well. Let me know if you get a chance to add it – she will be thrilled 🙂 Thanks, Susan (and Mary)

Looking for financial help in treating her dog’s eye problems. Hi Ron, thanks again. They contacted me already but I think we have to bring Dante first to an eye doctor so we know what procedure they will do and how much it cost and in that way they can call the Clinic to verify because that’s one of their requirements. Thanks again for your kind heart. I hope can save more animals. God Bless! Marilou I have visited your website and it is a great informational resource!

Checking out a Rescue Thank you very much for your prompt and very thoughtful reply. I’m relieved that you have no derogatory infortmation to pass on about Pet Rescue Alliance. I also agree that I would certainly want to meet any dog first before considering adopting him or her. I am inquiring about dogs for adoption from several organizations. If I pursue Pet Rescue Alliance of Alexandria, VA, far enough to obtain additional information that I think would be of interest, I will pass it on to you. I like your website and think it has much interesting information. Thank you again for your help. Sincerely, Bette

Pet Health Feedback Thank you so much for reaching out—-He didn’t need a blood transfusion after all—that was the first vet’s opinion. X-rays were given—he has an enlarged heart. He was given diuretics and actually peed in my bed last night. He’s actually back to normal for the most part—coughing (like a smoker’s cough). Thanks so much—I’m looking into pet insurance. Eunice, Glenwood, IL

Adoption Advice Thank you so much Ron. This is a great resource for people to find a pet. I wish there were more laws to put the back yard breeders that sell online out of business! I always try to tell people that shelters and rescues are not bad, they evaluate the animals, vet them, socialize them, and some are fostered in private homes. You are able to meet the animals and the shelters and rescues do their due diligence to make sure pets go to a good home. Janine. Friends of Homeless Animals Volunteer Website kudos Hello, I really enjoyed going through your website. It has a lot of great information and links for birds and bird lovers. Sincerely, Ernie

Unsuspectingly adopted a puppy with Parvo from a rescue and wanted advice. Thank you so much for all you’ve informed me about, and for your kind listening ear! I think we may be blessed with this puppy recovering!! Maureen Carter is a little too agressive for his current family Ron, Thank you so much for the quick reply. I used the PGAA site and found a sanctuary called Rikki’s Refuge in Virginia that will be able to take Carter in this Spring. I can keep him in our basement/garage until then and ensure he is well cared for. Again, thank you for your help. Carter and I really appreciate it! Jess

A large St. Bernard/Collie mix on verge of euthanasia because of compatibility issues with dogs. Hi Ron. I know it hasn’t been that long, but thought I’d update you on Junior. We converted two outside horse stalls and added a fence/gate to give Junior a nice large dog run. He now lives in a “doggy hotel” and LOVES IT. turns out he doesn’t like even our other dogs, was probably miserable having to deal with them, lots of growling especially around me, but never an attack like with the neighbors dog. He is happy, loves his “living room”, has toys and attention, and even a 50 foot dog lead so he can run. I’ve made it a point to sit down in his den with him every day, he lays there and loves being loved, just him with no distractions. So I want to thank you for chatting with me, had we not connected my actions may have been different and I may have had deep regrets later. So thank you so much, I think we have found the right solution. Lynn in Indiana

Seeking information about Bo the U.S. “First Dog” Dear Ron, Thank you so much for the information on Bo. I really appreciate all the additional information you provided as well concerning reputable breeders. Living in Hawaii presents many challenges when it comes to purchasing a dog. There are no local PWD breeders that I’m aware of, so we would be forced to look on the mainland. Visiting breeders would be quite costly, so I was wondering if perhaps you were aware of any reputable breeders? I would never buy from the internet without a visit to the site of course and, as your information pointed out, anyone could post any kind of pictures, only to end up being a horrible puppy mill behind the scenes.

However, If we do so I can assure you that the dog will receive the best of care, love, and affection. We do not take the responsibility lightly. I will keep you informed of any progress that we make in this matter. Again, thank you so much. Sincerely, Jerry

I hope I can find more, but if not, I’ll certainly contact the organizations you refered to me. Best Wishes, Iris

I was wondering if you would be so kind as to add a link?

Tabby Brookes

TA from South Carolina looking for help in finding an adoption opportunity. WOW! This is such wonderful, thoughtful information. Since it has been such a long time that I have owned a pet, it never occurred to me that a “rescue group” was not a reputable source—and I am a very cautious yankee who does my homework for anything I purchase or service I intend to use. Thank you so much for the warnings. I will follow it! Thank you also for the links. I don’t have to have a cockapoo (or any mix with a cocker). I just grew up with one and she was wonderful! So, basically, I just want a sweet small mixed breed (not purebred) and I refuse to buy any dog. I don’t mind paying someone for the health tests, but that’s it! Thank you! You are a great resource.

T Website Kudos Ron- Thank you for your revision of the Bull Terrier breed. You did a fabulous job and again as a breeder/owner of over 30 years I thank you. Regina G.

From Jan in Texas trying to find a home for an 8 month old Pharoah Hound.

We felt very fortunate to get her there, because we know she will be well-cared for and have a much better opportunity to find the right permanent home.

Regarding PGAA’s Guinea Pig article at I enjoyed your care page for guinea pigs. It was very informative and yet maintained an excellent sense of humor. I have kept dozens of guinea pigs over the years. I have not quite thought about some of their behaviors in the sense that you conveyed, but it all makes perfect sense now. Now I know why my piggies get more vocal when I lay my ears back and wheek back at them! I will definitely recommend your site to other guinea pig owners (I have contributed many baby guinea pigs to new families) especially the ones that come through the vet clinic at which I worked. Thank you for the fresh view! Amy

Regarding the listing of a rescue agency in Arizona. Ron, Thank you so much for your quick actions. Even though I am the ONLY rescue in Az listed on The Dachshund Rescue Web Page, and others are listed in multiple areas, I just picked up a rescue that was advertised as a stray on Craigslist. I contacted the family who had taken him in and offered to help if I could. This very intelligent gentleman told me that he had looked for many hours in efforts to find a no kill shelter for dachshunds who would accept a private surrender. I was right here all along, but search engines generate such a variety of anything that has anything to do with what you’re looking for, its hard to see the forest for the trees. Every link to no kill shelters is an important one. You bet I will link to you on my site…just gotta send this over to the nice volunteer who is building it for me, and get her to teach me how to add links at later dates too, Ron, YOURS will be there the day the site hits the web. Thanks again. Linda in Arizona
