We have a new wave of rescues - -Meet Marley!

Well as you can see, I am not in the best of shape at the moment. My name is Marley, and I came from a shelter in Selma, CA. It was a very small shelter, so they didn't have the room to hang on to me for very long especially considering my condition or should I say my conditions. I needed entropion surgery, and I am being treated for a form of mange, but I am not contagious to anyone-I suffer alone. I have had my neuter and eye surgery and been given a couple of medicated baths as well as being given a topical treatment for mange. I know I don't look like much now, and I have a long road ahead of me before I am "perfect", but my personality is already there! I am outgoing and friendly, and although most people don't want to get too close to me right now, I still want to share all my love and affection. I will be here in Redding for a few months during the continuing treatment of this awful mange, but I'm always up for a visit should you feel so inclined-I love meeting new people! I am a young boy with a long life ahead of me-this is just a bump in the road for me, and until I am "whole" again I have a place here in Redding where I know I am loved. To my foster parents I am special and deserving of the best care possible.

July 2011 - Update

Hi Folks,

Sorry it's been so long since our last update. We have had some personal matters that needed to be taken care of that put us behind. We will be adding quite a few new "kids" in the next few days. We are now at a point that we cannot take in any new dogs until we do some adoptions. The tough times are not getting better, and we are turning down dogs almost every day. There is just no more room. Rescuing can be challenging at the best of times, but it is almost an impossible "job" right now. We are still hoping things will turn around, but in the meantime trying to keep this rescue going is becoming more and more difficult for us. If you are not in a position to adopt a Pei and don't know anyone else who might be ready for a new family member, please consider making a donation of any amount. Donations are at an all time low, and we need your help.

I wish we had better news, but that is the sad reality that we are faced with.

Didi passed over today - We are all very sad

Today Didi went to the Rainbow Bridge to wait for us. She just had given up the will to eat and to live. We will never know what happened to her in the first five years of her life, but we can only hope she knew that she was loved for the short time we had her. Every morning she was the first dog Rich would go to before starting the "rounds". He would talk to her and pet her and encourage her to try and eat something, but for whatever reason she just wanted to be left alone. She's not alone now-she is in good company and not suffering. She is free of her pain and her past. Although she was only here for a short time, we will miss her.

We wish we could save them all, but we know that is not the reality of what we do All of our kids' lives are valuable and worth whatever we can do for them to try and make them "whole" again. In Didi's case it just wasn't possible. Although we lost Didi, her vet bills of over $1,500 still must be paid so if you can help in any amount it would be much appreciated by all of us.

Spring has arrived in Redding

Shar-Pei Rescue Parade - May 20, 2011 - Vallejo, CA

Contact Deanna Liskey at cspcnc@yahoo.com if you would like to participate. Participation is free.

Happy Spring - Please Meet Marta

Happy spring to everyone. Hopefully, our weather here in Redding will soon reflect this change of seasons. Apparently, Mother Nature has not yet been informed that winter is officially over!

We will be adding several new dogs in the next few days, and Marta is one of our new additions. In my 20+ years of rescuing Pei I had never heard of this before. Someone had tried to do entropion surgery at home. Those are staples in her eyes. Of course now they have been removed and she has had her surgery done by Dr. Larry. It's hard to imagine what she must have gone through. She remains a very calm and loving girl and will be a great addition to just about any family. Please look for her bio soon as well as a new picture.


Gypsy is doing well, but unfortunately will never regain the use of her front leg. Please don't tell her that there is anything wrong because we don't think she knows she is handicapped. She gets around just fine jumping on and off the furniture and playing with her stuffed "babies". She is waiting to have the pin removed from her back leg and then we will have the heartworm treatment done and she will be spayed after that.

Finally, we really need your help as never before. So far this year our vet bills have totaled over $9,000. When you factor in other expenses required to keep this rescue going, we are spending more than we are taking in. Unlike the government, this rescue must "live" within its means. We are lucky to have a little saved for a time like this, but it won't last too long. Please, if you are able to help with any amount, it would be much appreciated by all of us here in Redding. We want to continue to be able to help the less fortunate of this breed who find themselves with nowhere to go if we can't take them in. Please help us so we can help them.
