In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog.

Joe Cocker

Joe Cocker (aka Snicker doodle) here. I love my forever home at Jewell is wonderful! She was a little standoffish at first but she warmed up to my personality. But He took care of Jewell does too. He took care of her breathing problem and her itchy ears. Dr Meyer works for Pet Smart. He and his entire staff are great. They always pet us and talk to us and scratches our butts.


This is Millie (AKA Goldie during her time at FCSR). I've had her for 4 and a half years. She was 7 or 8 when I adopted her in January 2010, so she's a senior citizen, and the light of my life. What a great dog! Sharon Lynn


Hi Carol, Just a note to tell you how good Lola is doing. She worships my other dog, Lexie, and follows her everywhere. I'm glad they have each other. She had a pretty bad cough which my vet thought might be an infection but now says it was probably from the breathing tube she had during surgery. She's much better. Still just a waif but eats everything in sight! I think she's very happy. She's a little shy when meeting new people and seems to be quite fearful of loud noise but we're working on it. She's a beautiful little girl and I'm so grateful to have her. Thank you!


Dude (aka Jack) is doing great! Those 2 just love each other. Our family is very happy with him : )


Hi Carol Can you believe it has been 1 1/2 yrs. since I adopted Sandra Dee. She turned 2 today. I have attached a picture of her alone and one with Rusty. Gracie is alpha dog. She turned out to be a love. She is still a little frisky, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Regards, Rosemarie


Just wanted to share this great pic of Bentley.....he LOVES his IKEA soccer ball.....All going well. Love my boy! Victoria J. Alvarez


Rylie is doing well and we are amazed on how smart and well behaved she is. The trainers praise her on well she picks up on things and is well ahead of her class. Again thank you for giving us this wonderful member of our family. 1st picture is her in the family room with the family, 2nd is one of her resting places after her morning walk, 3rd is her going grocery shopping for her food and treats. The last is this morning after her morning walk. She and I both went back to bed.

Chocolate Cody

Hi Carol, I adopted Chocolate Cody around 1 year and half ago, and this is one of the best decisions that I have made. Cody is doing fine, we all are. He has become part of the family and we love him a lot. Lola received him very surprised but at the end she was happy with her new brother! He loves our daily walks, loves his toys, tennis balls and Lola loves to play with him and tease him (although Cody still doesn't fully get what Lola is doing) - they have a great time and keep each other company . Cody always receives lots of compliments for the color of his coat whenever we go. I am very happy to have adopted Cody, he changed all our lives and I hope that we are changing his. Thanks Carol for your dedication with these beautiful babies, and I want to thanks Cathy who fostered my Cody for a while [*:) happy] . Thanks again for putting Cody in my life, Dey [*:D big grin]


Hi Carol, I hope you are doing well. I just wanted to send you an update on Arlo, who is having many summer adventures. He has been to the beach a couple times now and loves it! He met some mollusks, hermit crabs, and starfish. Once he realized there were animals living in the shells, he had to sniff everyone to see if anyone wanted to come out and play. We also celebrated Arlo's birthday on June 15th. Jason made him a special lamb and turkey "cupcake" for his birthday brunch, and he received many presents. His favorites are a couple stuffed squirrels. Arlo also went to the doggy salon to get his summer haircut so that he will be nice and cool in the increasingly hot weather we are having in Tallahassee. Thanks for all you do! Best wishes & happy summer, Laci & Jason

Bede & Mama

HI! I just wanted to give you an update on our little brownies,Bede & Mama. Mama is as neurotic as ever! She is constantly looking for something to do, play with or get into. She is the ever watchful supervisor of all activities that occur in the house. She doesn't miss a thing, even if you think she is sound asleep. We have been doing a lot of yard work the past few weekends, so she has been spending hours patrolling every inch of the yard to ensure that she hasn't missed anything. She is always looking for her next adventure! She makes us laugh everyday. After the scare we had with Bede back in mid-March, I am happy to say that she is doing GREAT. At her last check-up, the Dr. decided to start weaning her off of the Prednisone, so after 4 weeks, she was able to discontinue it. He then decided to try and reduce her Metronidazole, which he started her on due to the hepatic encephalopathy issues, thankfully she is doing great. She will go back for follow-up blood work at the end of July or beginning of August. I am continuing to make her food, which she ABSOLUTELY LOVES, because all of the prescription liver diets were still too high in protein and she wouldn't eat them. She has been holding steady between 21 & 22 pounds. We are very thankful for every day we have with her. We are so glad that we were able to bring both of these girls into our home and hope that we can give them many more happy years. Thank You Andrew C. & Michelle

Boy Freckles

Carol: Just wanted to give u an update on Boy Freckles. He is doing great & was a perfect fit. He loves to play fetch & will play all day. If u tire of throwing one ball, he is quick to bring u another. He loves to go on his morning walks & loves to go for rides in the car. My son took this photo I tell everyone I think they are part aliens. Thank u so much for everything. Sandra Witz


Zoey came from this wonderful organization of dedicated humans!! She is loved.. And in New Jersey.


Just an update on Rylie. Rylie is doing very well and has taken over our home as the top dog. She had her three year old checkup with the vet and passed with flying colors. She was placed on the Facebook page at the vet. The staff at the vet fell in love with her. Rylie was evaluated by a trainer for obedience, her hearing issues, and manners. She did very well. Rylie had her birthday and got some dog cookies from Petsmart. Rylie also went to the beauty parlor and got a bath and haircut. Thank you for allowing us to adopt her. She is the most loving and special dog.. Mike & Bonnie Zelanes.

Red Gus

Hello FCSR it's me Red Gus ( now Bo). I will be Furever thankful for you rescuing me and giving me such a great second chance. I love my new family, they take me to the beach and I love smelling the ocean breeze. I'm full of energy and so eager to enjoy every little thing in life. Love, Bo.


Dear Carol, Thank you so much for your email and for talking with the vet last week. Cathy also emailed me Arlo's vet records. Arlo is doing great! He is very happy with us, and we couldn't be more happy that he is here now! He has been to the dog park a few times already and loves it. He also loves playing with his toys and chasing balls! I am attaching a picture of him with one of his new favorite toys. Thank you for all you do! Best wishes, Laci

Bailey Jax

I also wanted to let you know how much we adore Bailey Jax! She's the sweetest dog I've ever encountered. So gentle and good natured. And her and her dog brother, Stetson, are quite the pair. We'll love her forever. Thanks again! Attached are two picture of Miss Bailey living the good life. [All my bests, Chay


Hey Carol! This is Sir Winston reporting from Jacksonville, Florida. Seven years ago March 18th I picked out my mommy and daddy Bill and Lynne Ricci. I wanted to let you know that I am loving my life. I get to go on vacations and many car rides. I also get lots of treats when I am a good boy. My Beagle/Basset brother has lymphoma so I am asking for some extra prayers for Cooper. He is under going chemo and has been doing very well with it. As always Thanks for rescuing me so my parents got the chance to adopt me.


Hello, I am sooo happy! Bella is the greatest blessing in my life right now that God could have given me. Coming home to her every day and taking her on walks all the time, playing ball, etc. She is so adorable! I take her everywhere with me. She definitely LOVES the car too. I have attached a couple pictures of her. She is soo adorable. ☺ I am absolutely in LOVE with her! I cannot thank you all enough for fostering my dog and taking good care of her until I got to adopt her and bring her in my life. She is truly the LOVE of my life. <3 Thank you so much, Amanda


Hello Cathy, It is good to see you and I hope you and the dogs you care for are also doing great. Cody is doing fine, we all are. He has become part of the family and we love him a lot. It has been challenging at times but overall doing great with his ears, allergies and eyes. We were able to switch him from his special diet and now he eats the same food my other dog Lola eats and they both love it. He loves our daily walks, loves his toys, tennis balls and Lola loves to play with him and tease him (although Cody still doesn't fully get what Lola is doing) - they have a great time and keep each other company . Cody always receives lots of compliments for the color of his coat whenever we go, including my Family that came from Mexico to spend Christmas with us. I am very happy to have adopted Cody, he changed all our lives and I hope that we are changing his. I hope you are doing fine on that great job you do for these dogies. I have to admit I keep checking your website from time to time just to check on histories of other babies that have been adopted I admire the work you do. Thanks for checking on him and here are some pictures of my handsome boy: Again, thanks for putting Cody in my life. Dey


Hello Carol. I hope you remember the little girl Sassy that I adopt almost one year ago. I would like to fill you in as to how she has come along. She has turned out to be the best, sweetest little girl in the world. She may have started as a scruffy little thing but underneath was a beautiful Lady waiting to get out. She is so happy and loves her life her in South Florida. She goes to work everyday and enjoys the friends that come and go daily. She is a little shy and has bonded to me so much I don't think I could ever leave her. She cries when I leave and is so happy when I return it makes me too happy to come back. People tell me when I go out of the building she just sits and waits for me to come back. Then it is "happy dance" time. And I love it. She enjoys her back yard and runs like crazy. Every night we play with her endless collection of toys that have been showered upon her over the year. She loves her daily walks and is the talk of the little town we live in. She is really a beautiful little girl and everyone comments on her tail. Funny how many people say that it is great she has her tail. It has grown into a great plume. I never knew how happy my late cocker was but Sassy can't hide her emotion with that tail. I am so happy that I held out and got the little girl that I saw on the Internet. I have to tell you I saw hundreds of cockers, but when I saw that picture of Sassy I knew in my heart that she would be the best part of my life. She is nothing but a joy. If I could handle three or four more I would be coming back to adopt them but Sassy is my handful. She has been on a plane (First Class) and seen her two homes. She travels every where I go in "her car" and she enjoys all of her house and yard. I know in my heart that I gave her the best chance at life that a dog could have. Lassie had nothing on her. Thanks again for letting her be my best friend. James Beecham
