Please meet Gaius. He is a rescue puppy that Lake County Animal Services (LCAS) took into their care. I brought Gaius into my home to care for him as a foster puppy after his leg got broken.
And then it came time for him to find his forever home. And we couldn’t let him go, he belonged to us.
So now Gaius lives at our house and has started writing a blog to help other rescues. If you’d like to know more about Gaius’s adventures, you can follow his blog HERE.
If you would also like to help LCAS in their mission to rescue animals, please feel free to go to their website and let them know. At present, they save the lives of several hundred dogs, and some kitties, every year. It’s a big job, and with your help they can save more.
If you are looking for the love of your life, then this is a great time to adopt!
What else is possible for our friends that need us to protect them?
My 53rd birthday is on Monday and I’d like to take advantage of that to ask a favor of all my friends, their friends and anyone else that has a heart for animals, PLEASE donate Fifty-Three cents to Lake County Animal Services.
As most of you know (if you know me), I foster for this rescue and they are always hand-to-mouth trying to balance the huge need to rescue with the huge number of animals that need rescued before they are put down through animal control. LCAS, all volunteers, takes animals from the shelter, spays, neuters, trains and prepares the animals for forever homes– and then holds weekly adoption events in lesser impacted cities for the animals.
And this week the RED LINE is looming scarily. They rescued a litter of 10 puppies that are being neutered and spayed this week along with 10 other dogs (one of which is sweet Miss Stella that is currently in my care). The bill for this? Over $3,000.00. They need at least half of that to be donated ASAP.
There is always a demand for money, and it is so sad that lives are at the mercy of money. But they are. So if you could donate Fifty-Three Cents to Lake County Animal Services, I’d really appreciate it and consider it the best gift ever because you will be saving the lives of the animals and, as we know, we don’t rescue them, they rescue us.
Little Gaius, who is currently recovering from a broken leg and surgery for that, is also at my house. His surgery is still waiting to be paid in full. He is recovering well- almost too well. He will bring a lot of joy to his forever family.

Thank you, in advance.
Our local dog rescue , Lake County Animal Services, has some very sweet dogs that need homes, and though I’ve stretched the limits of our fur family as far as I can, it is fun to know that I can “borrow” some of that sweetness for a few days.
Here are the two that are visiting now. One is a boy, one is a girl. I’ll let you guess from the pictures which is which (because the girl posed, the boy wouldn’t).
The little boy melts my heart by coming up and asking to be held and then sharing puppy kisses. The little girl is more independent and she was up in my lap when nap time came, two sleeping puppies are an excellent excuse to take a nap myself.
It just didn’t get better than this. Do you have a room in your house and heart for a new family member? Check out Lake County Animal Services Facebook Page and Lake County Animal Services website, just in time for to share your Holiday.
Henna was part of a litter of puppies rescued by the Lake County Animal Services . When she was being spayed by a local vet, they found that she had a heart murmur. With a donation of an MRI, the full extent of her heart condition became apparent and she was diagnosed with a problem that is shared by humans and dogs, when she was born her heart didn’t change from a fetus heart that is fed by an umbilical card to a heart that worked independently once she was born.
Now it is clear that unless Henna receives surgery she may not see her first birthday. The Lake County Animal Services are coming to the community to ask for help to pay for her surgery and allow her a full and healthy life. They have set up a crowd funding site to allow everyone to contribute what they can toward Henna’s health care. If 1500 people donate $1 each, Henna’s surgery will be paid for, and if 300 chip in $5 it will also be paid for- a very easy and painless way to make a difference. Check out their site on Chip-In and donate what you can, please.
I also want to take this opportunity to say something that the amazing folks that run the Lake County Animal Services won’t say, they really can use some help for all the animals they save. Though the crowd funding is strictly for Henna and will be used for her care, there are other furry souls that could also use some support. Please consider visiting the Lake County Animal Services website and sending in a donation toward all the other furry folks in their care. Rescuing is a passion and a service from the heart, let’s make that service just a bit easier and make it possible for them to save a few more furry souls by making a contribution to this great service to our community.
In addition, if you are considering family portraits for Christmas or high school senior portraits, Diane Davis Photography will make a donation of $25 per session for every session completed in the month of September.
