It's spring and time for puppies to be arriving. No one could have anticipated the vast numbers, however. Here are some beautiful faces in need of good homes. Eight out of nine shepherd mix babies are ready to go whenever we can find foster for them in New England (one was previously adopted). Take a look and see if you can help us out. Missy, Mickey and Miles are 3 of the babes. The others are on our site at www.petfinder.com/shelters/me89.html

Sincere apologies for the lapse in blog entries! Between problems on the blogger site and crazy rescue life, not to mention softball and baseball season at our house, we've been slow to get the updates here, but you can always check out our available dogs at www.petfinder.com/shelters/me89.html
Our most significant news is that our foster dog, Arlo, was hit by a truck with a horse trailer a couple weeks ago now. His leg was badly damaged with significant soft tissue injuries, but being a "lucky pup" and all, he had no fractures or other wounds such as head or internal injuries. He was at the emergency hospital for 5 days and now that he's home he has wound care and dressing changes every two days. His vet bills are in the multiple thousands of dollars at this point, a significant strain on the rescue. If you can help out in any way we need you! Adoption of a pet, fostering, financial donations, and fundraising ideas are all welcome!
Here is a picture of our sweet boy. He's been a trouper through it all; he even lets them change the bandages with no sedation at this point. He is a love, and a great dog! He's had a long road, and this makes it even longer and more stressful! Thank you to everyone who has helped along the way, whether it's with your money, your moral support, or prayers for his recovery.

If you're a big dog lover, Tilly is your girl. She is a sweet lab who is approx 55 lbs. Her coat is a beautiful brown and she is a gentle and loving girl. She's great with kids, dogs and cats and will give you lots of love in return for a warm home, consistent meals and safety - all things that were lacking in her previous life!
This week we've sent some more lucky pups to their forever homes - Sunny, Tex and Dixon (they went together - yeah!), Betsy, Skipo, Daisy Mae and Ronny - thank you to their new families! Enjoy each and every day!
Now, we have some new babes - ALWAYS have new babes! A desperate situation in Georgia has forced a sanctuary to close, and to re-home nearly 100 dogs. After agonizing because we want to help them all, we were able to rescue the "best of the best" dogs and bring them here. We will update pictures when we meet them but scroll down to see these sweeties.
Here is Sully - he is a medium-size lab mix, terrific with kids and dogs, maybe a little much with cats. He is gentle and sweet and loving!

Mastiff mix who has been at the shelter too long.
If you would commit to fostering or adopting him,
he could receive the medical treatment he needs (for
heartworm) and travel north, possibly in late April?
He is a gentle and loving dog in spite of his size.
Can you be the one to spare this guy?

On March 1st there is quite a group of dogs joining us from the south. Perhaps you could help us foster one of these dogs and see if ownership is right for you at this time. Emily, Justine and Precious Gal as well as the brother and sister pair of Chelsea and Clyde are just a few of the possibilities.

If you're in the neighborhood of Kennebunk High School on February 9th from 9 - 3, join us at the Valentine Fair! Lucky Pup Rescue will have biscuits for sale for your furry valentine, as well as pictures and information about our adoptable animals and ways that you can help us out!
Below is a picture of Mikah. She is a 2-year-old Labrador Retriever/Catahoula Leopard Dog mix who was surrendered by her owner when he got called overseas. She was a much-loved family member, and has found a temporary foster home in Maine so you can come meet her if you like! She is doing very well with other dogs and cats, but needs a home without very small children (she likes to chase them too much!) She requires the space and opportunity to run, as well as someone who is willing to train her and maybe join an obedience class with her. Do you have an active family that could add Mikah to the mix?
