Unlike most rescues, in addition to healthy dogs, we save what many consider unadoptable; due to age, medical issue
and socialization/behavior issues. SSTR provides them with a chance to live out their natural life span, either with a
new loving adoptive forever family, or through our Sanctuary Program. Providing sanctuary LIFE-LONG care for senior
and special need dogs has very high vet care cost -    donations are greatly needed at ALL times.  We spend THOUSANDS
of dollars a month on vet care needs.

Remember we provide life long vet care for up to 50 dogs at times in our sanctuary program, in multiple foster locations. In
addition to their initial intake care; exam, vaccinations, deworm, spay/neuter, heart-worm test, we also provide the following,
based on the individual dogs needs: Dental care - Heart worm treatment - Knee surgery - Tumor removal - Eye surgery - Back
surgery - Neck surgery - Liver shunt surgery -  Provide ongoing very expensive medications for; heart conditions, liver issues,
diabetes, seizures, etc....

We also have to provide monthly hearworm preventative and flea preventative-
Donations are
Tax Deductible

Found in a rural area of AL, they were in poor conditions without sufficient food and water. Living in outside kennel
sitting in the middle of yard with nothing to protect them for the weather, except a plastic dog house (no blankets,
hay or anything to keep body warm). As we all know this is not sufficient housing for any dog, much less a  toy breed
dog in freezing weather-  The dogs were horribly matted and wet, in the cold weather the wet mats would freeze-   
ALL dogs were underweight and require extensive vet care-  
Due to lack of foster homes, in addition to Extensive Vet Care, we had to board dogs
causing our vet bill to climb higher than expected
A small rescue with ... a Big Heart!!
We are considered more of a "boutique" type rescue; our goal is happy, healthy dogs and successful forever adoptions!
