to read a special story about Ol Man. You are going to fall in love
with this boy and once you hear his story you may need some tissues.
Sadly, not every tale holds a "happy ever after" and Barney's story is heartbreaking.
We rushed to get Barney yesterday from Berkeley County Humane Society with
high hopes we could get him surgery and his life would take a wonderful
turn. Sadly, he had mast cell tumors that had become metastatic and
invasive. This made surgery impossible, ulceration of the tumor was
causing bleeding and severe pain for Barney. At the advice of multiple
veterinarians we made the only right decision for Barney. There was to
be no relief for this handsome boy.
FOS team lavished him with special treats and crammed so much love in
just a short period of time. In his last moments we squeezed him tight,
told him how much he was loved and his tail wagged as he took his last
breath. I can tell you that he left this earth covered in our salty
tears but was surrounded by love.
was left to die in an outdoor kennel and the lovely people at BCHS
asked us for help. To his prior owner, had you dumped him a few months
earlier his life may have been saved. I pray Karma will find you!
I cannot thank Cumberland Valley Veterinary Rescue and
Clinic for taking an emergency for us when they were not even our
primary veterinary hospital. Sadly, our primary veterinary hospital
could not fit us in yesterday.
you for those that reached out to help with his surgery. We NEVER make
this decision without the advice of multiple vets. Thank you Dr. Diana
Saxton for your kindness and helping us make the right decision for our
beloved Barney. Godspeed our beautiful boy! We will meet again.
Rest easy our sweet Prince...you were loved deeply by all of us and we will never forget you!

is still looking for love and we hope he soon finds a family that
deserves him. He is an exceptional 1.5 year old English Hound who
loves everyone! Great with other dogs, kids, cats do not appear
to be an issue either. He is a skilled dancer, great cuddle
buddy, loves to lay in his bed (especially is you cover him with a
blanket)! He is neutered, current on vaccinations, house and
crate trained. If you are looking for a great dog this guy is for
is a 4 year old Treeing Walker Hound who did not have a great life
before arriving here at For Otis Sake. He lives with 6 other dogs
in his Foster Home, he loves kids, cats and dogs. He is beyond
gentle and loving. Would do great in a high energy or low energy
home as he quickly acclimates to his environment. He loves to lay
in the sun or just cozy up in bed. He will make an exceptional
dog for a family! Loves attention...a simple and silly Hound is
what you will find with this boy.
All dogs below have been adopted! Yay kids...Happy Trails!!
is an 11 week Brindle English Mastiff mix who is absolutely adorable.
All other siblings have been adopted but this sweet little girl
waits. She loves other dogs, cats, kids and basically everyone.
She will be about 80 lbs full grown as she is a mix. Her
markings are as beautiful as her personality.
ADOPTED - Stella
is such a beautiful girl. She suffered severe neglect at only
1-year old and came to us with horrible skin as a result of poor care
and nutrition. Well she looks amazing now and is ready for her
FUREVER home. She is housetrained, crate trained, loves kids,
great with other dogs and seems indifferent with cats. She is
going to steal your heart from the moment you meet her and whomever
adopts her is in for a life of fun, happiness and loyalty.

Great personality, loves other dogs, kids and loves his toys!

a wonderful disposition. Loves other dogs, people, kids and has an adorable face!ADOPTED!!!
my our little Cheech is a firecracker! He is active, slightly
bossy and well has a big personality wrapped up in a 6 lb body!
He is adorable and would do best with a couple, single person but
no small children. We believe he may have been mistreated by
teenage boys as he seems to be very protective of himself in their
presence. He is quite a sweet little guy and becomes attached to
his owner quickly.ADOPTED!!!
James has been adopted and these pictures tell the story!
Happy boy, Merry Christmas and a blooming love story with the
neighbor dog! We are beyond thrilled for Sir James.
This handsome fellow found a wonderful home for the holiday's
and he will be spoiled! Murphy waited a very long time for the
perfect family and he has won the lottery!

family and celebrating Christmas in her FUREVER home. ADOPTED to another wonderful family!
Our furkids have had a run of luck with finding the perfect family for each of their unique qualities! Casey
is a Miniature Dachshund who came to us suddenly when his owner became
ill. Unfortunately, his owner is no longer able to care for this
little cutie with big personality. He is funny, friendly, happy,
loves to play, good with other dogs and has settled in well with his
Foster family. I suspect this little character will not be around
for long. ADOPTED!
(aka Spirit) has found the family he was destined to be with and they
love him as much as he loves them. After only a short week in
