So, after the defamatory
I was the "puppy rescue foster mom." Any puppy that came across PAR was mine unless it was too much. That's when Kim Smith came in to the rescue to take the Madagascar
Since then I was able to adopt Curtis who I've had since Oct. 2014 with an autoimmune
These pups were taken away from me in Oct. 2015 when I was involved in a hit and run accident ONLY because Michelle Dunlap was upset when I told her I was with a former acquaintan
Since then I now have both Curtis and Hank back but it's been nothing but hell. Don't get involved with PAR.
For the next six years, Michelle and I stayed in touch through photos of Tina and me asking whenever I needed an opinion on doggie matters. This August, I lost my sweet girl to a hemangiosa
I live across the country, and I could have strolled into any shelter and adopted a dog, but I went to Michelle because I trust her. I explained my recent life changes (I was hit by a car while riding my horse and lost half my right leg) and how they impact my mobility, which means I need a dog with a certain type of demeanor. Michelle had the perfect suggestion
Soon I'll have my new girl out here with me in Oregon, and I can't wait!! I'm positive I'll be just as happy with her as I was with my beloved Valentina.

Ronin's dad was a veteran who took his life after battling PTSD for many years. His family is being displaced due to this horrible tragedy, and needs to rehome their dogs. The only dog left who needs a home is the black and tan houndy boy, Ronin. He's good with kids (lives with 3) and good with dogs (lives with two big dogs and one little dog). If you're looking for a good family dog, please consider taking in Ronin. He's a nice boy who is very sad because of his family's situation. He's located in Ocala, FL and transport can be arranged if you're out of the area but willing to take in Ronin and give him a good life. At the very least, please share. Thanks in advance!
Update: Ronin has found a temporary foster home. Thank you everyone for caring and sharing 😍😘🐕🐶
Calling All Rescue Peeps!! I come to you with another sad st...ory of a family who is having to rehome a family pup due to desperate circumstances. Please share Ronin.....and if anyone can foster or wants more info on adopting him please let me know. He is a hound mix 3 yrs old, neutered but not up to date on Vaccines for this year as times have been extremely tough for the family. Please try not to judge this situation and only share and comment if you can help. The owner is tagged in this post to hopefully be able to answer any questions. Good with other dogs and kids not sure about cats. Dog is located in the Ocala area. Thanks in advance everyone 😚

Have you been wondering what Phoenix Animal Rescue has been up to? We changed our name and our mission in January 2017 to focus on training service dogs for veterans with PTSD. We still have the same focus on rescued dogs, and Phoenix Alumna Liberty from the Sumter County Shelter is the first service dog we trained for a veteran. She's the gorgeous blue pit bull in this photo, with her trainer Amanda who serves as our Veteran Liaison. We hope you'll follow our new mission at the Pets and Patriots Foundation page! We love sharing how much rescued dogs are changing lives as service dogs for veterans!
