"Andrew"  formerly known as Ronan or DEMON from the Carson Shelter - ADOPTED.  

Their backstory... Rocket has since been adopted, AND SO HAS LITTLE BEAR ! WE ARE SO HAPPY FOR THEM !
These two little orphans have a sad story. We started helping them last January when it was cold, windy & wet outside.  They had been abandoned by their original owners & were being taken care of by a woman with very little income or time for them. They were chained up & living outside. We built them a run with the help of Nina from Menifee Humane Society loaning her kennel run, got them igloo's, tarps, put mulch down, supplied her with food and got them vaccinated. Fast forward to June when we find out, they are still living there in the high heat of summer, outside. There were massive flies eating their heads, the tarps were virtually destroyed & the woman was out of food, struggling. We rebuilt the run again with better shade, water misters, a kiddie pool etc...but with the temps as high as 110F - it was no place for any animal to be living outside. We got them into air-conditioned boarding, but they got an Upper Respiratory infection so they had to leave. They were seen by a vet, put on anti-biotics and put into medical isolation boarding at $84 a day ! Ouch. They are better now and are still looking for their forever home. They are very bonded with one another and whilst we would be elated if they could go together, we understand that sadly this most likely will not be a reality.  If you can help with any of their costs, or share them with friends and family or even consider fostering them, it would help tremendously. Thank you !

Thor:  Adopted !  Thor is an approximately 2.5 year old fawn male. He is STUNNING... and a very athletic strong boy and would need a  strong, confident handler.  He would be best as an only pet in the home. He has had some extensive boot camp training. He is a very silly boy that will make you LAUGH. He is very sweet and loves people. Sadly he was dumped and abandoned by his owner in a boarding kennel and is desperate to go into a comfy home environment.



Life has gotten a whole lot better for him.
