Carol of Almost heaven

Here is what Carol of Almost Heaven in WV said about the Flat Coat
H Karen:

Normally, I would take him, but I have absolutely no place to put him and we just can't afford boarding any more.

If I can talk a foster home person into caring for him, he's welcome - but no one wants to foster any more, so unless they come here - we're stuck.

Donations have been way down, too!

Hey Karen! She hasn't gotten him yet, he's at the vet in Huntingtown, WV and will get to her this weekend. She wants to evaluate him to see how he is with other dogs first. There is also someone else who has expressed an interest in fostering him but I don't know what their situation is. Carol also has an older guy named King who is 12 who has some health issues that really needs a foster home where he will be loved and cherished until it's time for him to go to the Rainbow Bridge so I told her if she would rather I take King that I would. She's taking him to the vet next week as he has a chronic ear problem so I think right now it's just a wait and see situation. Either way it looks like I might get to foster some special Golden! I am partial to the older ones I guess because I know they are usually the last to be adopted and I feel like someone has to care about them and make their last years here special. I've been wanting to get much more involved with rescue especially after losing my Rusty and I think I would love fostering for Carol, she is just an awesome lady.

You are a wonderful person and yes Carol is special just like you.
What about the distance though you being in MD?
So you might get to foster a Senior Golden Ret. and then Carol would take the Golden (Wrangler) and the Flat Coat (Jasper)?
I know I might have confused everyone by posting two dogs on this thread!
Keep me posted!!!

It's not really that bad of a drive, a little over 2 hours from us, and I love WV so it would be a nice little drive down to get him. I've been wanting to meet her and visit her sanctuary where she keeps all the dogs nobody wants so hopefully it won't be too long before I can make the trip! And nah, I don't think I'm all that special, I just love these dogs! If I had a big farm I'd have lots of them! Unfortunately I'm in suburbia and doubt if I'll get that farm anytime soon!

You guys rock!

We help Carol out when we can (we've got two rescues from her: Jordie and Scout). We hope to do a transport for her in a few weeks. She is an absolute angel--and you are too for offering to foster one of her Golden oldies.

Bless you both!

Aww... thanks SJ! Yes Carol is such an angel, she is my role model for rescue! We just adopted our Dusty from her in October after losing our beloved Rusty. (Dusty's name was Rusty but we said there's only one Rusty for us so we changed it to Dusty) I have not had the chance to meet her yet, we've just been communicating through email so I am anxious to meet this wonderful lady! I'm still waiting to hear back from her about either King or Wrangler. I've offered to help her with transport as well when I can but it's hard because I work full-time. She was my inspiration in rescuing our Sammy from the local shelter, he was a stray and had a lot of health issues but he is doing really well now.

Give Scout and Jordie a big hug from me!
