This is a story about two particular DOGGY RESCUES and the wonderful lady who works between the two!
PENNY posted a photo of her own doggy on our Facebook Page and we began to have a little chat – people always amaze us – just getting to know some people, you find a wealth of kindness, devotion to doggy’s and a lot of experience from their Charitable Work!
We found that Penny was an extremely busy lady and has actually rescued 190 puppies to date! There will be many more! She’s not just a voluntary worker but she pays for the puppies she fosters whilst in her care! She told us she doesn’t ask for donations – This is her Passion!
Living in CABO SAN LUCAS in beautiful MEXICO for fifteen years, Penny works with two wonderful humans at DOG PRANA. Here a Mum and Daughter work to save discarded Puppies found on the streets and pregnant Doggy’s who have no homes! You can see their Facebook Page here ……… https://www.facebook.com/DogPrana – we would highly recommend a visit!
DOG PRANA pass the puppies to Penny. Penny takes the puppies, gets all their shots and neutered. During this 3 months, the puppies are leash trained, house broken and completely ready for a ‘forever home’! The second DOG RESCUE CENTRE is run by Penny’s friends, the are called RESCUE FAERIE! RESCUE FAERIE then completes the love the puppies have received by finding them the best ‘forever homes! Although not all, most of Penny’s foster’s head off to the wonderful RESCUE FAERIE – you can find them here https://therescuefaerie.org/ (such a brilliant organisation!)
You will be happy to know that all the pregnant Mother’s, after giving birth are also loved and taken care of, each finding their own ‘forever home’!
We asked Penny how she came about being a fosterer – she told us….. ‘We had just moved to CABO in 2007. I was at a woman’s meeting and a girl was there with 3 newborn puppies, 17 days old. She was crying saying her husband said she could not bring anymore dogs home. So I took them and she came and showed me how to give them a bottle. There were 3 puppies, MARLIN, which we kept, SASSY his sister and LUCY who got adopted to Canada’!
AND THAT WAS THAT, THE JOURNEY BEGAN AND PENNY IS STILL FORSTERING 15 YEARS LATER!
When asking Penny if any particular doggy came to mind for some reason or another, she told us about MIRACLE! She told us that MIRACLE’S Mum was a street dog. With no one to care for Mum, she was roaming the streets and knocked over by a car. The car killed all her puppies (or so was thought at the beginning) and Mum was injured and taken into emergency care! A few hours later, Mum amazingly gave birth to another puppy! Mum didn’t survive but this incredible puppy did – MIRACLE! Penny was called upon to rush up to the emergency room to take on MIRACLE immediately! Amongst all this sadness, a MIRACLE truly happened! This gorgeous girl now lives with her wonderful family in Illinois and the photos show you how beautiful this girl is!
Another time Penny had 4 newborns. Her brother was visiting at the time and helped her with the puppies. They had to be fed every 2-3 hours. Penny said ‘ they would make a total mess afterwards and had to be washed off! We had an assembly line. I would feed, my husband would burp them (yes you have to burp newborn puppies) and then they would get a bath and my brother would dry them off. None of us got any sleep for about 4 weeks! My brother said this was NOT the VACATION he was planning’! Wow, this is amazing and we have the giggles a little at your brother’s comments Penny!
Penny is know as THE PUPPY LADY and gets calls on a regular basis to look after abandoned puppies. She was once out having a nice relaxing meal and someone recognised her and gave her a puppy to take care of! – How could she resist!
‘FOSTERING PUPPIES IS MY PASSION. I AM A CARE GIVER. MY MISSION IS TO GIVE NEWBORN AND ABANDONED PUPPIES A CHANCE OF SURVIVAL’ – Penny (The Puppy Lady!)
