On a hot summer evening on SGI, hundreds of runners and walkers took to the pavement to benefit the homeless pets of Franklin County.  The annual St. George Island Sizzler has become a wonderful tradition over the years and the support of the runners, sponsors and volunteers continues to grow. 
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors, volunteers and participants for attending and supporting this event.  Without all of us working together, the needs of our animals would never be met.

Tillie is a 10+ yr old black Toy Poodle who  was found abandoned in Apalachicola and brought to us by the good Samaritan who found her huddled next to a fence with a bowl of dirty water and leaves.
When she first arrived she was understandably scared and very reserved.  She laid in her bed, not making eye contact and eating very little.  She doesn't see well due to cataracts and her hearing isn't the best so you can imagine her confusion and fear.
After having her groomed to remove the mats and filth she perked up and began eating better and interacting with us.  We kept her inside, close to us where we could spend time holding, petting and playing with her.  Yes, playing!  This little girl was hiding the sweetest, happiest temperament behind all that fear.  Once she had acclimated to the shelter and to us, out of her shell she came.
Now we are looking for that person, that very special person who would like to give this sweet senior the loving home she deserves to live out her life.  A place with a warm bed, soft lap, plenty of food and love.  If you are that person or know someone who might be, please call 850-670-8417 and be sure to share this newsletter with friends and family.
For every two steps forward, we take one step back.  Just when we think the kitten situation is under control, we get more.  We transfer kittens to other rescues whenever possible but that's rare this time of year as all rescue organizations are bursting at the seams.
In order to place our cats and kittens into homes quickly, we continue to offer our fully vetted kittens for only $25.00 and have waived the adoption fee for our adult cats.  
Please consider adopting one of our fine felines and also donating to our spay/neuter voucher program which allows the neediest in our community access to low-cost spay/neuter services.  You may click on the donate button at the top of this page or mail a check to: 244 Hwy 65, Eastpoint, FL  32328.  Thanks in advance!
Goliath, a Great Pyrenees, was owner surrendered to us in April by a couple who had bought him from a breeder.  Apparently they hadn’t done their homework and were unaware of the care and training involved with this breed.  As Goliath grew, he became “too much” for them and they no longer wanted him.
Upon his arrival, we contacted Pyrenees rescue of Florida, a wonderful breed specific rescue we have called upon before.  The beauty of working with a breed specific rescue is that the people involved and the people wanting to adopt know what that animal’s needs and tendencies are and can go in fully informed and committed.  Eyes wide open.
Goliath didn’t care for men and it was obvious from his flinching that he had been hit both on the head and back end by a man.  Goliath spent time with a master behavioral trainer and he blossomed as he gained trust and confidence.
Soon he was able to move into foster care with a fantastic foster mom who ultimately couldn’t part with him.  Yep, another foster failure!  His name is now Jaxson and his temperament and behavior are so good, he has become an official ambassador for the organization.  Below is a picture of him with his friend Savannah at a meet and greet event.
Happy tails sweet boy!
