Welcome to Rescue, Gertie

Happy announcement!!

Guess who is a Russell Rescue Inc girl??? The little old girl we posted a few days ago is!! One of our amazing fosters Lecia saw her photo and fell for her. That got the ball rolling. Then transportation arrangements from Oklahoma to Texas had to be made. Volunteers for that had to be found. Luckily Heather found Dana S who volunteered to go pick her up and drive her part way to meet Lecia. Dana rearranged her entire day to help us and this little old girl, and Lecia sat all day waiting for her new foster after doing a different transport herself.

When Dana picked up the little old girl she was laying her her poop and pee 🙁 but Dana still held her and put her in her car to drive her to safety. Then Lecia got her and drove her home. She was so covered in urine and feces she had to be bathed immediately. So Lecia gave her a nice bath. She was wearing a little shirt and underneath it was caked in feces. This poor 14yr old little girl was a stray no one came for. She spent about 10 days in the shelter and got lucky. Her teeth are in bad shape, and she has some mobility issues, but we don’t care. She is ours now and she will be safe and loved the rest of her days.

Thank you to all the volunteers that stepped up to help this little girl whom has since been named Gertie. Welcome to Russell Rescue Inc sweet old Gertie.

Happy Tails – Davey

I think everyone will remember Davey.  He was picked up as a stray in the Houston, Texas area and taken to a local shelter last summer (2016).  He sat in his concrete kennel for over a week with a broken leg.  When Russell Rescue learned of his situation, Davey only had a few hours left before being euthanized.  We quickly made arrangements to get him out of the shelter and to his foster mom.  Davey went to the vet ASAP.  He ended up needing surgery to fix his leg.  Davey got his surgery and spent many weeks doing his exercises and stretches while his little leg healed.  He had an awesome foster mom who took great care of him!  Davey found his forever family not long ago and he is living the life in Colorado!  He is now called Vinny.  He gets to go on walks, and play with his best buddy.  As you can see in the video, his leg has healed!  Happy Tails Vinny!  We couldn’t be happier for you!
