Coco Puff -
not a new placement, but a wonderful Pupdate -
"Just wanting to send along an update nearly 6 years
‘coco puff’ aka Charlie.
as she’s been renamed, is doing so well and loving every
minute of life. She’s a completely different dog than
when picking her up nearly six years ago. She is such a
sweetheart and just wants belly rubs all the time. Her
fur has totally grown in and she’s such a beautiful Pom!
a bit lazy due to her left front leg abnormality but
loves any adventure. Her favorite pastime is getting on
the airplane in her travel bag - just as long as she’s
going with you she’s happy as a little clam.
She has so
many instant and long term friends. She just seems to
put herself in everyone’s back pocket. They are such
suckers!! They always seem to offer that if we need to
leave her for over a month or two that’s ok!!
She has a
few less teeth due to having to have the loose ones
pulled. But a big plus was this last December teeth
cleaning she did not ha e to have any pulled!!
she goes just make sure her food is there. She never
skips a meal and always reminds you it’s getting close
to meal time. Even when having to board her overnight
every now and again, ‘she’s one of the ones that always
eats her food,’ according to the boarding place! That’s
can’t believe how much we love her and how lucky we are
to have had Charlie find us. Thank you so much for
rescuing this sweet angel."

Momma & Sammie -
adopters hold a very special place in my heart. Adopting a
senior is an amazing act of love.
Giving that wonderful fur kid love and compassion through the last
of their lives, taking on the special needs
and expenses of a senior furkid is one of the best things I see.

Pawni - formerly Sailor -
Not a new
placement, but a wonderful pupdate.
"I was thinking
today about the last time I emailed you (it was a long time
ago), I was frustrated at the time because I was going through
the adjustment period of Pawni finding his place in our family.
It was a lot of pee, bark-fighting, and angry roommates, but we
got through it.
just wanted to let you know that I really, really love Pawni a
lot, everyone does! I get asked all the time if I would be
willing to give him away, which of course I say no. He's a
happy, big-hearted little boy, who is funny, and playful, and
full of love. He's the sweetest pet I've ever adopted, and I
can tell you put a lot of care into the fosters you take in. I
couldn't ask for a better companion.
attached a little collage of photos I've taken of him since I
adopted him last year (maybe the year before), so you can see
that he has a happy puppy life.
Thank you so much for letting me adopt him!
Christina, Pawni, & Rylo"

Dorothy and Rose -
Dorothy and Rose are senior girls that were surrendered in one of
our Oregon shelters together with the loss of the mom and decline in
health of their dad. They were in pretty rough shape when they
got to us and went home with Adria for rehabilitation care.
After almost a year with no adoption interests Adria decided that
she wanted to keep these sweet seniors in her loving care.
"I just wanted to reach out to say thank you for what
you do. I am so in love with Karl and can’t imagine my
life (especially now) without him. He’s super spoiled -
loves bike rides, walks, Hammock snuggles, and hikes.)
... and he’s so smart! He’s learned play dead, roll
over, waits to eat, and so much more! He brings me so
much joy. Thank you!"
Not a new placement, but a great pupdate.
Update on Suzy Q
"Suzy is the best dog I think I'll ever have. Her new name
is Suzy Q and I couldn't ask for a better dog friend. She's
so smart, she listens and obeys, she's good off leash in my
yard, she loves my cats, and is a very adaptable and
secure little pup. If you are in touch with her former
family, please let them know she is well loved and very well
A month ago a friend reached out to me about another Pom
they found on Petfinder. It seemed she was at the Multonomah
shelter, "unadoptable", due to fear. Fortunately she found
her way to Harmoney New Beginnings Rescue in Sheridan and
then into my home and heart. She has past trauma, but a
loving home and some consistency and understanding has
already worked wonders!!I
I'd like to
introduce you to my crew: Happy the Cat, Suzy Q, and newest
addition Winnie the Poof (formerly Minnie)!
I hope your rescue is
weathering this weird storm. Thank you for what you do. I'm so
grateful for the new dogs in my life!!!"

are down a bit this year. We needed a break. We have been
driving so hard with the expansion construction that we just needed
a bit of time off. We had an amazing extended vacation the end
of the year and are back refreshed. Even with this break our
five year average is over 100.
