Despite this condition, these girls are the happiest babies you will ever meet. When they first came into rescue, they had never been on grass or shown affection by humans, as they were kept in cages and isolated from humans.

An EXCITING day for the puppies!!! They got their first taste of real dog food today, and they loved it! Momma Willa wasn't so sure at first about them having dog food, but quickly backed away and let them eat (I think she realized how this could benefit her haha)!!! ... See MoreSee Less

ADOPTABLE!!! Rita is a one year old lab mix that came to HCW because her former owners could not afford to feed or care for her. This poor girl was not socialized, and skin and bones from surviving off of scraps the mail man and neighbors would throw out for her. Rita has come a LONG way since then. She is healthy, happy and full of love to give. At first she would just lay down and hug the ground when you would put a leash on her, but is now much more confident and is walking on a leash well. This sweet girl deserves to be in a home with a family to love and spoil her, could that family be yours??? Please visit our website: and fill out an adoption application! (3 photos) ...
