Cassie popped up on our radar in mid-January when our Facebook angel, Kathy, spotted several facebook posts about her. She had been in a kill shelter since December -- used to produce puppies and then dumped by her "loving" family. How can people be so cruel?

Cassie's Shelter Intake Photo

She was a staff favorite at the shelter, which probably explains why she was still alive when we finally found her.

We were first hesitant to add yet another dog to our already full load, but Cassie's time was running out and she didn't seem to have any other option(s) available to her.

We're not quite sure who put this on Cassie or why, but we're trying to find out. She sure does look cute, doesn't she?

Leaving the shelter

Thanks to our favorite transporter, Tera, Cassie was picked up at the shelter this afternoon and is safely tucked away at Crossroads.

To all of Cassie's faithful & generous supporters, we are eternally grateful...

Much too underweight for spay surgery, Cassie will be given some time to rest and put on a few pounds before she is either moved to Phoenix or scheduled for spay surgery. We're not sure at this point which will come first. If a foster home opens up in Phoenix, she will come to Arizona for her spay.

UPDATE 3/11: Cassie had her spay surgery today and came thru just fine. We're going to be working on bringing her to Phoenix as soon as possible. She'd love to have a foster waiting for her when she arrives ... could that be you?

Adoption fee $375.00.
