"MJ"~ Last Boy Of The Litter To Come North!!!

"MJ" is the brother of Simber, Triska and Cassma. He finally made it north yesterday! His sisters came a couple of weeks ago but there was limited room in the van so he waited patiently on his next turn to hop on board! Well "MJ" as you can see is getting the love that he has waited so long for!! We want to thank Sue and her family for adopting "MJ" and giving him his furever home....

Oh and by the way "MJ" was named after the famous legend Michael Jackson that recently passed away....So now "MJ" must live up to this legendary name!!!

GROWL also needs to give thanks to Rob for driving him north and also to Brenda for staying out a little later than normal and braving the NJ turnpike to pick "MJ" up!!!

GROWLKIDS Need A Little Help....


If you have adopted a GROWLKID or you are a GROWL Supporter or just happened to swing by the blog on accident, GROWL needs your help! Times are tough and the economy has hit everyone hard. We have been VERY fortunate to be using our own van for the last months and are able to carry GROWLKIDS north at least twice a month! This has helped us out alot!

GROWL has FINALLY placed the last GROWLKID that was in boarding in a foster home! We have been on a mission to do this so that we can start chipping away at the accruing monthly bills we have. We have started with a 1,000.00 goal and hope to be able to start there and raise what we need to so that we can continue to pull, transport, and vet the many GROWLKIDS we rescue.

GROWL has done many massive shelter pulls using 15-20 kennel runs at a time just to save as many lives as we can!

We currently have a surgery pending that will be about 500.00 and we need to apply 500.00 to the boarding bill. We have been doing at least 2 van transports each month north of furkids and we have had a few van repairs that have taken alot of the rescue funds we have raised lately.

We would greatly appreciate your help if you can so that we are able to save many more GROWLKIDS!!!

THANK YOU for helping all of these wonderful rescued babies!!!!

Dex ~ "I Found My Forever Home in New Jersey!"

Dex has found his forever home in New Jersey!!! He was from a litter of three little men that needed to find the love they deserved. They came all the way from South Carolina. His brother is below in a previous blog, Beasley is his brother! This pic is the day Dex was taken to his forever home and he is doing just wonderful!

Daisy ~ Enjoying her new life in NY!

Daisy was a Aussie Mix rescued from a kill shelter in South Carolina. She and her littermates made their way to New Jersey and soon found their forever homes! Daisy has a fur-sister and 2 human sisters! She is living the dream in New York and we wish her and her family the best! Thanks to her mommy Sarah for sending us these great pictures of Daisy and her fur-sister snuggling.

Triska and Cassma * Sisters Living The GREAT Life in NJ!!

GROWL rescued these girls along with their sister Simber from a rural kill shelter in South Carolina. (You can see Simber in the past blogs below). These girls were lucky enough to find their forever home TOGETHER!! Their mommy was interested in either of the girls and she agreed to foster them BOTH until we found a home for whichever one didnt "bond" with their family the best. Well, I mean really, who wouldnt love both of these girls! So needless to say both of these girls are living together in their forever home. They frolic and play together and are just the best of friends and wow what a great life. We are also connecting Sara (Simbers mommy) and Susan (Cassma and Triskas mommy) so that all of the girls can get together for many play dates! (P.S. We want pictures ladies!!)

Two more lucky GROWLKIDS in their furever homes!!!!

Lola ~ The Princess of the Three....

Lola is the sister of Bandit and Samauri in the blog below. She was the only female of the three that GROWL rescued. As you can see from her pictures below she is still growing and becoming a gorgeous (yet big) girl!! Her daddy Greg is pictured here with her when she was adopted and Alex her cuddles her for her recent picture!! As you can see Lola is in a awesome home like all of our GROWLKIDS!! We are so thankful for families who love these babies like they deserve to be loved!

When these 3 were brought up they were malnourished and really in poor health. With the help of Linda and Dan (2 awesome fosters that failed fostering 101 and adopted BOTH Bandit and Samauri) these 3 babies have grown into 3 of the most amazing puppies!

I personally think Alex has found him a little fluffy girl to play with and spoil!!!

Flower Patch Girl ~ Rose! "Molly" ONE YEAR AGO!!!

Molly was one of the Flower Patch Girls!!! These cute little baby girls were rescued from a rural shelter in South Carolina a year ago! Mollys mommy sent us a collage of how she has grown over the last year! She truly has become a spoiled little girl as well, her mommy and grandmommy even make her doggie meatballs! She has mastered her vocabulary skills, learning: sit, stay, down, off, treat, wait, paw, dog, Grandma, mommy, out, ride, walk and car! Danielle and her Molly are off to a great new life together and I am sure many more adventures in the many many years to come.

Frankie! ~ Not So Little Anymore!!!

We got a update on Frankie today! He is GROWING LIKE CRAZY!!! As you can see he is not the small little boy he used to be but his "human" brother doesnt get that quite yet!!! Frankie is living it up in New Jersey, spoiled by Ray and his son!!

Yet again another GROWL southern rescued furkid finding his forever home!!!!

Tiggy (Scruffy) ~ Spoiled ROTTEN in NJ!!

Tiggy was rescued from a high kill shelter in South Carolina and came up to New Jersey with his pal Ginger. We rescued Tiggy and Ginger at the very last minute. They were so little the shelter had put them in the puppy room and they were only there a couple of hours when a puppy in that room broke with parvo and the shelter was euthing every animal in there. They called us and asked us if we would take the risk and take these two. Within a couple of minutes we were in the car and headed to get them! Tiggy and Ginger made it out healthy and now in their forever homes!!!

Tiggy is beyond spoiled and is quite chunky now considering he was all bones when we rescued him! He sits up on command and scurries about as happy as a clam!!!

Little Bear! Another Rescued Mississippi Miracle!

Little Bear was from one of the latest litters rescued from Mississippi. He came to New Jersey with his littermates looking for furever love!! Little Bear found it with Daniela and her great family! From being dropped off with his littermates in a box at a adoption event, he surely has come a long way!!! What a strong little boy and it looks like he is getting more and more spoiled by the day!

Thanks Daniela for giving this boy a great new start in life and the love he needs to become a true "Little Bear"!!!

Chico ~ Dumpster Boy Turned Handsome Jersey Boy!!!

Chico was found is South Carolina at a dumpster hiding in every corner he could find and even so scared that at 7-8 weeks he was already nipping from fear! He was being given away to anyone that would "come and get him so to speak". Chico's guardian angel Brenda insisted that we get Chico to New Jersey and work with him and find this boy the best home possible! Soon after that Chico jumped on the van run I was driving up and Chico found his way to a new life!!! Once in New Jersey Brenda and Cheryl worked with Chico and just after 2 weeks of sure LOVE, Chico was a new little loving man! On one of the last trips to NJ, I went over and visited Chico to see the difference and followup with another puppy shot. I must say that Lisa and her family truly found a GEM, as you can see Chico looks AWESOME!!!

Halley ~ The Sweetie With A Halo!!!

Claudia recently sent us the new family photo! Halley looks adorable as always and is already growing! She was rescued from Mississippi and made the trip up to New Jersey recently with her littermates!!

We all think that Jordan (their 17 yr old foster mommy in Mississippi) did a excellent job taking care of them prior to coming to New Jersey!! True rescuer at such a young age...AWESOME!!

Claudia came up with the name for Halley from Halleys Comet! (We named her Halley since she has a round spot on her head like a halo)...Just Great!!!

Simber & Sara ~ Perfect Match!

I heard from Simber's new mom tonight and she hasnt stopped clicking the camera and has found her "Perfect Match" in Simber! I also think that Simber seems to not mind that one tiny bit, she will love being spoiled and loved like she truly deserves! Simber was rescued from South Carolina. She was found by GROWL with her 4 littermates in a rural kill shelter. She is truly living the great life now!!

Congrats to Simber and Sara and we wish them the best of luck in their bonding adventure!!!

Oliver~Jersey Boy Loving Living At The Shore!!!

Oliver was from a litter of 7 recently rescued from Mississippi! Thanks to the awesome folks there he make his way to NJ and has found his forever home with Ann and Dan down at the Jersey Shore! As you can see little Oliver rules the car and and house already at his young age!!!

Congrats Ann and Dave on your new rescued addition!!!

Bandit and Samauri ~ Absolutely Adorable!

Bandit and Samauri were from a litter of 3 furkids that came to New Jersey from South Carolina. They were itty bitty babies and were very malnourished and just need LOADS of love. Linda and Dan were set to adopt one of these babies before they arrived but as you can see they ended up with BOTH brothers! Lola was also adopted to a great family in New Jersey. Linda and Dan fostered all 3 of these babies and got them through their challenging time with alot of love and careful monitoring! I guess they failed fostering 101, TWICE!! I get to see them quite a bit when I am in the area and they truly are growing so big! They were a mere 2-3 lbs when they arrived and they are at 23 and 24 now!!!

They look AWESOME!!!

Paws Up and Hugs to New Jersey!!!

All these furkids want to give huge High Fives and many Puppy Breath Kisses to all of the volunteers and fosters all over New Jersey!!! This was from the last adoption event and all the babies had just arrived and their xpen was set up ready and we were all welcomed with open arms!

Without the MANY people helping us out in NJ we would not be able to do all that we do and save as many as we pull from the rural shelters!!! They never intended to be "rescuers" I dont think, but it just happens!!!!

"Brody" ~ Escaped SC and Found Happiness in NJ!!!

Brody was a 1 year old yellow lab having a hard time finding his forever home is South Carolina! We had a van run planned to go to NJ, so Brody caught a ride and never looked back!!! He is living it up with the Caprio's in NJ and loving everyday. We had a little scare a few weeks ago as Brody had a seizure episode, but with his family praying and staying by his side Brody has pulled through it and doing great now!!!

JuJu (Julie) ~ A True Diamond in The Rough!

JuJu as I love to call her finally found her new and furever home in Brooklyn. She was rescued from Mississippi and came to NJ in search of some love! JuJu was a little shy and it took awhile for her to find her forever home. Everyone that met all of the other pups we had always took the ones that would run up and greet them, but JuJu was clearly waiting until they were all gone to Shine! She went to a foster home in NJ with Stacy and out of the blue one day we got a email about her and Allison and Neil wanted to meet her! I was elated!!! They clearly loved her from day one and wow you can tell from the pics on the first weeting where she was so shy and look at her now! She even went swimming while in Ohio!!

Thanks to everyone that gave JuJu that little extra time and love she needed and I can clearly see JuJu has found her forever home and both Allison and Neil are awesome! Oh and by the way, her new name is Jonesy, but its so hard for me to adjust!!! :)
