Meet The Woman Who Devotes Her Life To Rescuing Stray Dogs

I have known Thalia for year, she is a family friend and has been rescuing dogs for more than 20 years. She never considered herself a rescuer and never demanded any help from anyone. All she does, she does it on her own. The fact that I am able to help her rehome some of her rescues makes me very happy, and I am grateful that she can trust me to do it.

The fact that I have adopted a dog from her says a lot actually. My Pela was the first one of her dogs that we would supposedly put up for adoption, so she came to me for three days, to be house trained and leash trained, and she never left. Over the years, I have fostered and rehomed many of her rescue dogs, and they all turned out to be amazing pet dogs/

All her rescue dogs are up for adoption by SCARS. For adoptions, you can email me at: [email protected]. Below are some of her dogs that are up for adoption:
