Willy's Dog Blog: What's Happening with SWESR Dogs

Reggie Update

by Willy on 09/19/18

What a busy several weeks it has been at SWESR! We have placed five Setters in their forever homes, brought five more into rescue, and are processing numerous applications for adoption. But you all want to know about REGGIE the WONDER SETTER! More happy news! Reggie’s vet expects him to live a full, happy, 4-footed life. Everyone who meets Reggie falls in love with him. His stay in foster care is going to be a couple more months, so he won’t be ready for adoption until much later in the year.

One of our volunteers said “Reggie is a miracle of SWESR's loving care!” But we need more foster homes to make more miracles happen. We have three dogs just waiting to get into rescue so we are in need of more foster /foster-to-adopt applicants. Any chance you are the person that can make a place in your home and heart to save one of these beautiful dogs?

Another Setter in Need!

by Willy on 09/11/18

REGGIE was so lucky to be swept out of his bad situation quickly. However, Connor, is still in need of rescue! His write-up indicates that he may need to be in a home without other dogs. SWESR is in desperate need of more foster homes. Is there any chance that you can provide him an opportunity to move out of the shelter (where he has been since July) and into a home where he can decompress and enjoy the wonderful life he deserves? Connor will need a home in the Southwestern US with experienced, dog-savvy fosters who can slowly integrate him into the good life. He is about 8, neutered, and heartworm negative. Please consider being the one who can help him enjoy the good life of a SWESR pup.
