This little lady came to us by way of a local animal shelter.  She was surrendered to them by her family with her fur-sister who was subsequently adopted out.  Unfortunately, Sky had bad skin issues and was scared in the shelter not understanding where her family was. We knew we needed to help this girl.  We put a plea out on social media and within an hour we had a foster.  Sky got along fabulously with their resident pup so we knew the stars had aligned.  We got her into our vet straight away!  Her first visit she came home with more meds than Dianne’s grandma, but she sure was happy!  This was in October.  Months passed, many vet visits, diet changes, medications, and a spay surgery and this girl was ready for adoption!  On March 29th, 2019 Sky’s foster parents knew that they couldn’t let her go.  They signed the paperwork and made their family complete


Dylan (Dilly)

This 3 year old boy came into the shelter as a stray at a scary 34 lbs in the middle of winter and slept for 3 days straight once he got there.  The staff at the shelter thought that while on the streets he got himself into some sort of drug that created a toxicity problem.  We acted fast!  We picked him up and the very same day took him to our vet.  He was almost in organ failure from being so skinny!  We got him on special food and antibiotics and into the comfort of a sweater and lots of blankets. Dylan spent about a week in boarding where we were able to closely monitor his meals, and general behaviors.  As he began to gain strength, we found him a foster where he thrived!  He loved his time with the resident dog, is best friend kitty, and the kids in the house!  Fast forward 3 months and Dilly was up to 60lbs and ready for his neuter (gasp!).  That surgery ended up not being as easy as we all thought it would be.  He had a missing testicle.  After 3 hours of surgery they closed him up and gave us a call.  He stayed the night at the veterinary office then came home with this foster.  After he healed, he met his forever dad.  It was love at first sight.  His dad adopted him a week later!


Macey

Macey (fka Arielle/Gizmo) was brought into Rochester Animal Services as stray in December of 2016. When she arrived Macey was missing almost all of her fur, and was quite swollen. After many weeks of skin testing, it was determined that she suffered from Allergies.  After many weeks, Macey was made available to the rescue community. Pets Stops Here brought Macey into their rescue on Feb 16, 2017. Macey was sweet as could be from day one.  It was apparent she loved people, other dogs, and she even aced her cat test! I took Macey home as my first foster dog.  Macey was started on medications and special food. I soon saw a difference in her skin, and she began growing in her hair. While she was healing we worked on a routine, potty training and building a trusting relationship. Macey settled in and integrated herself with my 3 kitties. I knew Macey would stay with me forever the day I cried over her newly growing eye lashes! Her adoption was made official in May 2017. The past 2 years have seen many ups and down for both Macey and I. We have grown together and taught each other much more than I could have imagined.  - Rachel(foster/adoptive mom)

We stepped up, got him to our vet got him on meds for his skin allergies and treated the multiple infections from these skin issues. G. Thomas spent 6 months in our care boarding.
