The Blue Heart Sanctuary...
Dogs & Cats
Since our inception in 2001, we have rescued and rehabilitated numerous dogs and cats. Some have been the victims of cruelty, others neglected or simply abandoned. Here are just a few of those that have been fortunate to call the Blue Heart Sanctuary their home.
Solly was abandoned as a kitten. He was found in a parking lot near a busy road. Not long after Solly came, we rescued Charlie. Solly & Charlie became the best of friends.
Tinkerbell was found wandering on a state highway as a puppy. She was nearly bald from mange, covered in fleas and had bloody paws. Her recovery was lengthy due to her poor condition but, today she is one happy pup! She was diagnosed with epilepsy several years ago and we are committed to giving her the care she deserves. She is Shelley's shadow and follows her everywhere she goes.
Although you would never know it today, Squirrely spent the first couple of years at the Sanctuary in hiding. She was found at an abandoned property with another cat, Wookie and several goats. The neighbors had threatened to shooot her because she was getting on their cars at night and making paw prints. It took us over a week to catch her and bring her to safety. She is a funny little cat that has finally come out of her shell.
Yodie had a rough life before coming to the Sanctuary. Someone had burned cigarette holes in both of his ears to "toughen him up." Naturally he had some major trust issues but, over time and with a lot of love and patience on our part, he has learned to trust us and now as a permanent Sanctuary resident, he will never again know anything but love.
Jackson was another abandoned kitty that was fortunate to find his way to us. He had been living under a mobile home in a rural area and we believe he had been living off of bugs. He is a talker and if given the chance, will sleep on top of your head.
Patches and her sister, Shadow came to us as barn kitties that were no longer wanted by their owner. Shadow has always been a very social kitty who loves attention but, Patches just kept to herself. Over the past couple of years we have seen a big change in her personality. She has become very affectionate and will follow us around the Sanctuary grounds.
Rocco was neglected as a young dog. He was living in a 4X4 pen without adequate shelter. Surprisingly terrified of sheep but, loved to herd our young son! He's had a wonderful life at the Sanctuary.
We're not sure if someone dropped him off or if by luck, he happened to wander upon our Sanctuary but, one day at feeding time, we found Shaggy eating our Emu's food. This guy is well deserving of his name. He will eat constantly if given the chance and is definitely one of the grubbiest cats we have ever cared for. His favorite thing to do is to roll over (usually on top of your feet) and have you rub his belly.
This poor girl had been hit by a car and until we rescued her, had never received proper treatment. The Sanctuary was a wonderful outlet for her and she would spend hours outside making her rounds. She developed severe arthritis as a result of her injuries but, that rarely slowed her down much.
