Rescue Dog Finds His Dream Home Three Years After His Amazing Recovery

Rescue dogs like Oliver usually have one thing in common: thousands of shares and zero adoption interest. Rescuing a dog like Oliver means that every post’s “people reach” about will rise sky high, with comment like “I would have adopted him if…” coming and going.

Giant Sick And Starving Dog Asks For Help And Finally Gets It

Giant dogs are so…”underprivileged”, so wrongly perceived as animals that can care for themselves, as pets that belong in the garden. They are even wronged by rescuers sometimes – don’t get us wrong, but choosing to rescue, foster and try to rehome a 50 kilo dog is never easy.
