Marcus Rides the Love Cart

Marcus was abandoned in my neighborhood and I took him in.  The neighbors told me he was around several days and had no ID.  He was malnourished and very dirty.  He was less than a year old and not neutered.  Lost Angels took care of his medical needs and he was adopted in about a month.  Pat had recently lost her dog, who looked a little like Marcus, and fell in love with him at first sight.  She drove up from Sun City to see Marcus at Petco, and filled out the application on the spot.  Pat is retired so she and Marcus are together constantly.  They ride the golf cart around the neighborhood and Marcus goes for long walks every day.  Everyone in the area loves Marcus and he has lots of friends.  When Pat’s family visits, Marcus gets even more love.  

 It has been almost three years since she adopted Marcus.  There have been some challenges with such a spirited dog, but Pat loves him and they could not be happier together.  Marcus has the life we want for all our rescued dogs and I am so grateful to Pat for her devotion to Marcus.

Nova Relaxes - Adopting a Senior Dog is Good for the Soul!

This is beautiful Nova!  She was dumped at a kill shelter by her prior owners.  The shelter said she seemed to be in a state of shock when she first arrived.  We had wonderful foster parents step up for this senior girl.  Our volunteer, Tina, who does a lot of our transports took pictures of the "freedom ride" as Nova left the shelter where her life was in danger and started a new life with the angels.  This photo pulled at the heart strings of what ended up being Nova's new mommy. 

Her new mom writes:
I just thought you might like up date on Nova.  she is so much more relaxed and has really opened up even more in the last few weeks.  We are still trying to get the skin under control but 90% better!  Also we just had a sample of those lumps taken.  should get the results next week.  I really noticed a huge difference in her when I took her to the vet last week.  she didn't seem confused anymore, meaning she knew she was coming home with me and I wasn't going to leave her.  :0)  I can't wait until I am able to adopt more Nova's!

Beach Day for Gavin - Slow Kill HW Success!

Gavin came to Lost Angels from a high-kill shelter.  His time was up and he was a lucky one who found a spot with us.  He was heartworm positive and had some separation anxiety.  He found a wonderful home with another little doggie to play with.  He is now heartworm free (thanks to the slow-kill treatment) and loving life.
