Ginger Collins

December 20, 2001 –             November 27, 2014

When Irma Collins saw an ad in the paper for a puppy, she thought hmmm.  She called and drove to Charles Town, WV to look at her; it seemed that Gingers’ owner had to keep her in a crate, away from the male dogs they had.  Irma says that when Ginger looked up at her in that crate, her eyes begged “take me home with you”, and that is just what Irma did!

Keevah Brown

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

March, 2013 - November 24th 2014

Jessica went to the shelter one day, with no intentions of getting a new pet, and by the time she left, she knew Keevah was meant to be part of her family.

Keevah didn't really like toys but she loved her pineapple shaped bed.  Keevah also loved to climb, cuddle and snack.

Jessica says it’s hard to choose a favorite memory when they were all amazing; however she always loved it, when Keevah would curl up on my chest.

Beldachs’ Oliver O’Keeffe (“Ollie”)

Ollie was happy about everything he did (except being the show ring!)  He loved to play in the yard, use the agility equipment, hunt or play with any stuffed toy available!  Sticking out his tongue and smiling was Ollie’s special trick, as well as standing on his rear two legs for cookies.

Tristia Moyers

Born December 12, 2012 in Winchester, VA and immediately won Theresa’s heart.  It was love at first sight!  Tristia was born at the Moyers neighbors’ home.  Theresa couldn’t wait to bring Tristia home, finally at 5 weeks she did. From the beginning Tristia, nicknamed Poo, was the most loving and caring little girl.

Nico Harrison

Nico was born in Cross Junction, VA in April, 1996.  She was such a timid little girl.  Trish remembers how scared she was when she brought her inside.  She said Nico would hide under the bed; finally, one night, she jumped on the bed and slept with her.

Sweetie Hodnett

It is always hard to say goodbye to a beloved family member, which is exactly what Sweetie was – and more!  We will never forget the day she came into our lives and into her FOREVER home 10 years ago.  We found Sweetie wandering at our apartment complex and immediately fell in love with her; like any responsible pet parents we put up signs so she could reunite with her family.  Little did we know that she would escape and end up with us for a second time.
