Julep

julipadopted

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!! After nearly two years with us, Julep has found the most loving home we could've ever hoped for! If you remember JuJu was scheduled to be euthanized when we pulled her from a shelter in July 2016. Josh and his son felt like it was time to love another rescue dog after their aging, faithful companion passed away in October of last year. They fell in love with Julep from the second they met her and the feeling was mutual. Julep has settled in nicely in her new home with a family to cuddle with every night. We would like to thank the generous donor who sponsored Julep's adoption as well as the Moore family for choosing to adopt. Thank you Julep for teaching us about strength and resiliency. Our hearts are so full, we've been waiting on this day for Julep for quite sometime! There's no doubt she hit the jackpot! #HCWDogs Lots of people have followed Julep's story so feel free to SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS!

Adopted November 7, 2017

Let’s kick the last day of 2017 off with a bang!! Post your 4-legged babies here!! Tell us how they made your 2017 extra special. Although, I have many dogs in my life this little lady right here is special in her own way. Cookie originally came to HCW about 5 years ago, she was adopted and with her family for 4 years, when they suddenly realized their life was to busy for this 10lbs ball of love.

Upon her return,(so very happy her adopters honored their adoption contract, a promise to return her to us no matter the reason) she was heart-worm positive, 80% blind and in terrible need of a dental. Since returning to us she has gone through heart worm treatment, and she totally rocked it!! Adjusted to a life of unconditional love, comfort and most of all stability because her sight gets worse by the day. Every night just like this pic, she sleeps in my lap, lounge out and a grin. She made my 2017 extra special.

I hope everyone has an amazing 2018, filled with lots of joy and happiness!!!
Happy New Year!!

Cheers,
Mollie

Jenni Chobot FanslerThe owners wanted to put this girl down when she stopped having puppies. The vet refused and the owners ended up just leaving her there. The vet called us and asked if we wanted a 10 year old lab. Yes! She follows me everywhere I go.

Rebecca VanzantOur sweet Jax and Mimi. Jax came from HCW we adopted him in February and Mimi came from Woodstock in Lexington we got her two weeks later. We love them very much. Jax is the sweetest dog I have ever known. He is so gentle with Mimi who is smaller but is a typical Chihuahua and can be a little spicey. They have made a wonderful Duo.

Pamela BrownI've had Izzy for 10 months. Right after I got her I had multiple unexpected personal crises, so we had a hard time getting to know each other. But once things settled down, we were finally able to bond. She is funny, sassy, and challenging at times, but she's a sweetheart and I love her to death! I was in the process of trying to make the bed when I made this pic. She likes to run laps on the bed!

Susan Holloway PriceThis is our grand dog, Tucker. He was adored in 2014. He lives in Nashville and loves life. Enjoyed the post about Cookie. She was our neighbor and I immediately missed her when she left. She always greeted me on my walks. So glad she is enjoying her new life. Thanks for all you do for the animals.
