picture of Jake (use to be Kona). We love him so much!
Thanks for all you do! Karen, Ken, Hillary, and Jackson
Hello! My name is Guido and I am so
happy to say I've found my perfect home. My foster
mommies take such good care of me. I have sisters to
play with and I get to even swim in the lake, which is one
of my favorite things to do! I'm actually a very good
swimmer at that! I love my family. Thank you
SAFE for finding me my forever home!
to the vet last week and I'm a "big" girl now. I got my
last shots and my rabies' shot. Ouch! They weighed me and
I am a whopping 6.9 lbs. I absolutely love my family.
Abby, my big sister (well she is the tallest) is my hero. I
love to follow her everywhere and my favorite spot is right
between her front paws. If she is chewing on a toy, I
am chewing on it too - if she is chewing on a bone, I'm
chewing on it too. Some times, she even lets me have the
bone and then I can just roll over on my back, still between
her paws, and I can gnaw on the bone by my self.
human family is great too. Everyone loves me and says I
have the most wonderful personality. They all spoil me and
carry me around all the time, even though last week I
learned how to go down the long flight of steps in the
house. Mom watch over me. I think she was scared I was
going to go tumbling down, but I didn't. Mom says I still
wake up happy and I'm happy all day long. I even bark when
Mom comes home and still love to give her lots of kisses.
Mom says that I am going to be beautified for the first time
this week. She and my grandmother keep saying they don't
want me to be "fi-fi fied" so I think I will get to keep
most of my beautiful hair and I'll just be cleaned and
trimmed up. Mom said she will send you some updated
we will stay in touch. Miss you but I am very happy and
love my new family lots.
Hello, I just wanted to say how great I am
doing. I've grow like crazy and am now 7lbs.
My parents say I'm a delight! I'm an early morning
riser because I play so hard during the day and falls asleep
early. I love playing with my tiny Kong that has
special treats in it and enjoy playing monkey in the middle
with the humans. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to
get a wonderful home. My name came from the Webster
Dictionary. Isn't it cool???
Hello! My name is Zoie and I'm FANTASTIC! I get
to go almost anywhere with my parents because I'm so
adaptable. I even got to go camping with them!. I just slept
at the bottom of one of the sleeping bag like an old pro. My
parents had a friend with a dog also and the two of us
played so hard that we could hardly stand up. It was so much
fun rolling around in the dirt for hours. This picture
of me is when I fell asleep in the car with my head on top
of a water bowl!
Thank you SAFE for finding me my forever home!
My name is Velvet and after just a day in my new home, I
know I have fit in perfectly! I sleep peacefully and
quietly in my kennel as I get worn out playing with my
brother Buddy and the neighbor's dogs that like to come out
and play. My owners say I'm a sweet "smart" dog with a
very spunky and gentle disposition. Of course, they've
only had me for one day so just wait! *wink* I
am extremely happy in my new home. Thanks for bringing
me to my forever family!
Hi! I'm Sloan and I am doing just perfectly fine in my
new home! I get to run up and down the stairs to find my
owners if they get out of my sight for very long. I
mind my owners well and I am very loving to them.
I have learned to walk on a leash without pulling too much
and I LOVE to watch squirrels and deer. But I just
watch - no barking! Of course, when they bolt, I get
to run after them! I got to go the the housing
development's 4th of July party this year which is why I'm
wearing a nice patriotic scarf. How much better does
it get for a dog like me? Thanks for delivering
me to my family. My hugs and kisses finally have a
perfect place to land.
Hello! My name is Sport and I recently found the most
perfect home for me! I'll write more later when I find
the time to tell you how happy my life is. For now,
I'm off to play with my new family...
Hello!! My name is Bayla and I have
adjusted perfectly to my new home! I have a big brother
“Keller”— who happens to weigh over 100 lbs more than me but
I don't get intimidated by him at all! We couldn’t have
been a better match. I love everyone I meets too—especially
children. I get to make my parents laugh everyday—thank you
so much for helping me find my wonderful home and bringing
my forever family to me!

We both got the pleasure of staying
together as we land in our forever home. We have so
much fun playing with each other and bringing joy to our new
family. Our family thinks SAFE volunteers are angels
for all you do.
Thank you for everything you do!

Hi everyone! My name is Yukon
(aka Yuki) and I have found my forever home and have
adjusted just perfectly. I get to play with my new brother,
Reggie, and my new owners even take me to the dog park to
meet and play with other dogs. Thank you so much for
finding my new family for me. I am a very well loved
and extremely happy boy!
Take care, Kate Davis
Hi again! Rosco is doing wonderful at
our home! We are still going on walks almost everyday
and he is completely housebroken. Since having Rosco,
Brownie (our Chihuahua) has dramatically improved on his
potty habits as well. Who knew all we needed was another
doggy for him to stop going to the bathroom in the house!
We recently got him a little blue
plastic kid pool, and on the weekends when it's hot we fill
it for him and he could spend all day outside playing in the
water and mud. Brownie wouldn't think about getting wet by
his own choice, so we invite our neighbors dog (a black lab)
over to play.
Rosco is such a big love bug and
wherever we walk he is always stuck by our sides. We love
him so much and I want to thank you all for bringing him
into our lives. I also wanted to make sure his brothers and
sisters were doing just as well. Thanks again!

Kya is doing great! We had a good
first weekend together. We took her in the car a couple
times to go walk around. She seemed to enjoy it pretty well
and is now jumping in all on her own. She only whined in her
crate the first night; since then she's been perfectly fine.
She's definitely quite the lap puppy and will hardly let
either of us out of her sight. I took her to the vet on
Tuesday (East Lincoln Animal Hospital) to get her all
checked out. She's healthy and happy and we've all grown
quite attached to each other already. Kya has definitely
found her forever home.
Thanks for everything!
Rebecca and Bryan and Kya!
Hi! My name is Micki and I was brought
to an Animal Shelter on an evening when I was ready to
deliver my nine precious babies. No one came searching for
me so our time was running out. Yes, they would have
euthanized me and my darlings but a S.A.F.E. volunteer came
to the rescue. She and another volunteer found us a foster
home so I could comfortably nurse my little darlings to good
health. Fortunately, my foster Moms fell in love with
me and decided to keep me. Now I have a wonderful big
yard to run around in, a lake to play in, other dogs to play
with, and even better, one of my 9 babies (Boots) gets to
live with me forever. I'm so grateful to the S.A.F.E.
volunteers for looking out for me and my children! I
couldn't be happier!
|My name is Boots and I was
brought to my new home along with my Mom and 8 siblings when
I was just 5 days old. My foster home became my
permanent home! I am so happy to have my Mom with me
to teach me good behavior. We're also going through
private obedience lessons so we're getting to learn a lot of
cool tricks! If it wasn't for S.A.F.E.,
I wouldn't be here today. Thanks so much S.A.F.E.!
My name is Harley.
I am 7 weeks old and am really cute. My mother was a Beagle
and I am not sure who my dad was. My mother had 10 pups.
This was Harley when he was adopted. Look at me NOW!
I’m one lucky boy!
|Bruster is doing great! He is the best dog
ever! Rob and I are both so in love with him and so
proud of him when we take him out. All the kids in the
neighborhood love him. I am sad that Chewie has not been
adopted yet. I check the website every couple of weeks to
see if he is still on there. I am sure if he is anything
like his brother he is a super dog. I tell anyone who
admires Bruster that Chewie is still waiting for a family
and tell people who are looking for a dog or puppy about
S.A.F.E. Rob and I are both so glad that we were able
to adopt such an amazing dog. He is so smart and
loving! He still likes to give kisses and tries to
crawl up in your lap though he is much too big of a dog for
that these days. :)
|Kylie is doing great. She is just the happiest
dog. She still pees on the floor when strangers come to the
house but once they are there she is fine. She loves to play
and she "talks" alot. It is so funny. She sleeps in the bed
now. Most of the time she likes to be right next to me and
shares my pillow. She sleeps just like a little person.
Copper and Kiley play every morning when I get ready for
work, the cat likes her the best when she is sleeping, but
she tolerates her. She is just a little too playful for my
old cat. The whole in her heart is healing shut on its own
so doesn't look like we will have to do surgery. She is
doing great. I will have to bring her to Pet Smart so you
can see her next time you are there. I have attached some
pictures of her.
I’ve had a hard life! I was looking
for someone who would rub my tummy, let me watch TV with her
or just take an afternoon nap next to you. Life is special
to me because mine was almost cut short. I found her! I
didn’t get just one great person. I have three wonderful
adults who I adore! Thanks Grandma!
I was not suppose to be here today
because my owner found out that I was going to have babies
and sent me away. I was tested for heartworms at a shelter
and came up positive which was 2 strikes against me.
I never knew that a dog could be this
lucky, but I’m living proof that there are good people in
|Max is doing great! He is full of energy and he
is packed with tons of charisma. We all love him and he
loves us right back. He is housebroken and he gets into his
crate very willingly when it is bedtime or any time that we
are stepping out for awhile. This summer we had a new
kitchen installed and the installer got a kick out of Max.
It turns out that Max likes to supervise. I took him for his
yearly check up in August and he is the picture of health.
The vet said that he is a very nice Westie. She works with
Westie rescue and she was impressed with how healthy he is.
He is quite the Mama's boy though and he is my constant
companion. I have been trying to download a picture of Max,
but I am having no luck at it. I am totally inept when it
comes to computers. Last year my daughter had to help me
send the application to you for Max. I often say to her,
"Thank God that you were home that morning, Alison or we
would be Max-less." I will try to download a picture when my
daughter comes home from work tonight and forward it to you.
picture Last September he went to the Adirondacks with us
and he loved it. He travels great! Thank you so much for
saving Max. He has enriched our lives with his Westie
enthusiasm, charm and his love for life and people. Yours
truly, Margie and Max
|Gabby is the most awesome dog ever!! She
sleeps with us now and only has to be in her crate when we
are gone. She does sometimes still make mistakes in the
house, but we are working on that. We are going to enroll
her in the training at Pet Smart Soon.
When I took her to
the vet, I found out she is only about 1 ½ years old, and
she has a problem with her bowels where the sac doesn’t
release as is should and when she begins to scoot, it means
she needs to have it fixed. The vet told us it really isn’t
anything we can do, but I do be sure that I feed her good
food and she seems so happy and much more relaxed. She also
has a heart thing where it isn’t a murmur, but when she
breathes in it beats faster than it should. He said it is
pretty normal for the breed. We are taking her to the
Banfield Vet there at Pet Smart and we like them.
All of the kids love her and when we take her places
everyone asks what she is because they think she is a
puppy. I have a couple “shirts” and she looks so cute in
Thank you so much!

|Ceili is doing great. She knows how to swim and
tries to rescue us whenever we are in the pool. She loves to
play with other dogs and remains sweet natured. She is
spoiled and we just love her. Thanks so much!
|Tommy is as good a dog as you would ever hope
to find. We love him very much, and are so glad we decided
to call you, and check him out . I hate he had such a bad
beginning with the other owners, but if he hadn’t , we
wouldn’t have him now. I am not working , so I am home all
the time and he is my shadow, he goes every where I go
around the house, and goes with me , when I have to go to
the store, he likes riding and , I consider him as my buddy.
So, how are things with you and the new home and the dogs in
your care ? My wife and I are sure glad that there are good
people like you out there that care about the welfare of all
of the homeless animals and work so hard to find them good
