Ariel

Ariel

Ariel came to us in October of 2018. She is a year old female terrier mix. She weights about 25 pounds. She was rescued from LA when a woman found her in May dragging her legs in their backyard, they suspect a hit by a car. Their vet had a grim diagnosis so she reached out to a rescue who brought her to CT. After they got their specialists involved and her treatment had begun my cousin Glenn reached out to me and asked if I could help. I met her and instantly fell in love. No purer a love than a young dog that has not known abuse, this girl doesn't know she is different, she just wants to be a puppy and to get love. She is now ours and we are working toward seeing how much healing can be done for Ariel. She is getting top notch treatment, food, supplements and has had all her needs met. We have a link on this website to our wish list on Amazon if you feel so compelled to help us in any way. Her progress will be marked on our SARAH RESCUE Facebook page so like that if you want to stay up to date. You can never underestimate the power of love in the healing process.
Benedict

Benedict

Benedict came to us in June of 2018. At 12 years old the only family he knew could not keep him any more so we took him in. Unneutered, over grown with hair and pencil thin, this boy was very closed down when he came. After a few days as he was feeling better he became very aggressive toward me, I couldn't handle him or even walk by him without him attacking me. We had him neutered and called in a dog trainer and an animal communicator who both helped us help him to adjust to his new life and understand that he was safe with us. He is now very well adjusted to his new life and his new family. Patience is sometimes required with rescue dogs. They get confused and need time to understand their new home. We are glad we stuck it out with Ben as we love his quirkiness and funny ways.
Cheech

Cheech

Cheech is a male chihuahua who came here in February of 2017. He fell off the couch of his owner and could not walk so after a few weeks of anti-inflammatories they felt his chances for recovery were none so they signed him over to the Veterinarian whom contacted us and we gladly took him. He has rallied well here. He clearly has some permanent nerve damage but his mobility has been incredible with raw diet and supplements plus chiropractic adjustments and B shots in his acupuncture points. He is an absolute joy to have with us. His personality is so upbeat and he loves chasing leaves out in the backyard. We hope our boy has a long healthy life with us.
Thresa

Theresa

Theresa came to me from a private person in Virginia in 2009 at 12 weeks old. She was born without a fully formed front right paw so was not able to find a home out of the litter they had. She is a pit mix and a very loving dog. She loves people and has had a very healthy life here with us as part of the SARAH RESCUE sanctuary dogs. She gets a raw diet and plenty of supplements so that the weight bearing on her right shoulder doesn't cause her any problems.
Caleb

Max

Max, a beautiful red hound, came from Caroline County Animal Shelter in January of 2006 at 4 months old. He was from a litter of two and the other pup did not make it. We suspect whatever that pup had Max had also because he came with an edge, something that caused him to be a bit off. He was my husbands dog and when my husband passed in 2008 we tried to rehome him but his behavior was too erratic so he became part of my pack. The funds for him do not come from SARAH RESCUE but from me personally. He behaves well for me and now that he is a senior he has mellowed into a couch potato.

Amy Rose

Amy Rose, a 9ear old female poodle mix, was taken from a hoarding situation in the south up to the North East by a wonderful rescue Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. They took care of all of her physical needs (Mammary tumor removal, spay, dental, shots) and found through blood work that her kidneys weren’t working well plus that the tumors were malignant. So they put her in a foster home, then another and another until her Angel Amy in NJ took her on. She had her for 9 months and started the trust building and loving consistent care. I saw her on the Petfinder sight one night in August and fell in love with her face. I had adopted from them before so they knew about us. The bio stated she was "independent" and liked her space plus couldn’t be handled above the neck. Challenge accepted, so she came here to live with us. And it has been wonderful. She still has a way to go but she got her first grooming without anesthesia yesterday so she is learning that people can be trusted. Follow us on our Facebook page to see updates about our girl and our other residents.
Sadie

Sadie

Sadie came here from Manhattan ACC. They were overcrowded, doubling up dogs so I enlisted a friend for help and she pulled her and another dog for me. I am glad I didn’t see her intake as I wouldn’t have taken her. They deemed her aggressive and she truly isn’t. At 11 years old and 45 pounds, this beagle mix wants nothing more than to be loved. She came with a big lump on her side so we had blood work done and when we saw she was healthy enough, we had them remove it. The biopsy was cancer, but a very good prognosis for it returning. He love her, she loves the other dogs and we look forward to many healthy years here with us.
Roland

Roland

This 14 year old 9 pound sweetheart was the second dog I pulled from a New York shelter and he also was deemed aggressive. He is still a bit nervous but has not shown aggression here. He is happy to be held and hugged and kissed. He was unaltered, had a big cyst on his neck and was bald over a good deal of his body. We had surgery done where they neutered him, removed the cyst and took out 7 teeth. Just getting him in a stress free environment has caused the hair to start growing back. He is learning to be part of a family that loves him and we are so happy to have gotten him here with us. This is him getting his initial check up with Dr Brooks at Snowflake Pet Center in Milford.

Yogi

Yogi is a 3 year old 8 pound male beagle, JRT mix. He came from GA where he wasn’t taken care of well. Another rescue pulled him and treated him for heartworm and once we heard about him we asked if he couldn’t come and live with us. He came here needing some R & R and has completed that part of the program. He is loving and very sweet. He also has become best friends with Ariel, which makes us happy as she needed a younger dog to keep her mind and body active. Yogi is a chill southern boy who loves to eat and hang out on the trash can.
