It's been busy! We have taken in 23 rescues in just the first few months of 2013 and helped with many more. Quite a few dogs have already been adopted and we have many more available just waiting for you.
We periodically get questions on how some dogs are adopted so quickly. Many people apply and get approved to adopt and then wait for a rescue who is a match. When we find a rescue whose needs match those of a family, an adoption can happen quickly. So if you would like to adopt a rescue and can wait a while, please start the process now. These sweet rescues are sure worth waiting for.
Our focus as always is the older or special needs Cavaliers. We are seeing more than ever BYB, puppy mill or owner turn-ins because of health issues and the economy.
Therefore our vet expenses continue to climb and donations are always so appreciated. Many of the rescues coming from the midwest are heartworm positive. Most shelters and some rescues euthanize them because of the expense of treatment. We do not aand successfully treat them. Some of the others have knee issues, MVD or other issues. With your help, we have been very successful in remediating these Cavaliers to become happy, loving pets.
A HUGE THANK YOU to all who have so generously supported these sweet Cavaliers' needs. Because of you, these dogs are enjoying wonderful lives, many for the first time. Our volunteers are so special; raising funds, driving hundreds of miles and fostering for sometimes months on end to find just the right match for each rescue. YOU, our generous volunteers and contributors, make it all possible. Huge thanks to all who so selflessly gave donations to pay the vet bills. Special thanks to all who contributed to our sponsored dogs like Ceci, Winston and Sumer, to Sally's Fund, other gifts and the FB Brigade members who ran a successful auction to raise funds! We couldn't do it without you all. Sending you all huge puppy hugs and kisses!!

This past week, Lucky Star has taken in 4 new rescues. Augie (SC) came from the HSUS mill confiscation in Edgefield County, SC. He is heartworm positive. Sadie (OH) a 7 year-old female came from an Amish farm in Ohio. She's is currently receiving vet care. She's very overweight but friendly. Thank you to a special volunteer, Dean, who drove a long distance to pick her up and deliver her to our vet in the Columbus area. We're making arrangements to pick up a tri male from a mill on AR and a tri female from another breeder in KS. No photos at this time, It will be a couple of weeks before we have vetting completed. They will be posted when available for adoption.

This boy, Augie, is safe in Lucky Star hands. He was the one Cavalier in the HSUS mill confiscation in Edgefield County, SC where 250 animals were removed from the property. Augie has severe corneal scarring and is HW positive. He's a friendly boy and as you can see, he is grateful to the HSUS volunteer. A special thanks to those of you who responded to our posting that made this possible.
Here is the HSUS link for the video describing the mill confiscation and the heroic efforts of the HSUS and its volunteers. http://video.humanesociety.org/, select South Carolina Puppy Mill Rescue.
