  • Sasha's Story

    A senior rescue, Sasha found herself in the care of a dedicated foster parent for over 120 days. Initially timid and withdrawn, Sasha slowly began to emerge from her shell in the comforting embrace of her foster home. The first few days were challenging as Sasha navigated the unfamiliar surroundings and adapted to a new routine. However, her foster parent, understanding the patience required for a senior dog, provided the gentle encouragement Sasha needed. Slowly but surely, Sasha started to trust her human companion, finding solace in the warmth and security of her foster home. One of the notable breakthroughs in Sasha's journey occurred during car rides. Initially fearful and anxious, Sasha would tremble at the mere thought of getting into a vehicle. Recognizing this hurdle, her foster parent patiently worked on building Sasha's confidence. Short, positive car rides became a regular part of their routine, allowing Sasha to associate the car with safety and care rather than fear. Months passed, and the bond between Sasha and her foster parent deepened. The once-shy senior dog transformed into a more confident and affectionate companion. The trust she had developed for her foster parent was evident in the way she leaned into their touch and wagged her tail with joy. As the days turned into months, Sasha's foster parent realized that their home had become Sasha's forever home. The decision to adopt Sasha was a natural progression of the love and connection that had blossomed between them. It was a heartwarming conclusion to a story of second chances, patience, and the beautiful transformation of a senior dog who had finally found her place of belonging. Sasha's tale serves as a testament to the impact of fostering, patience, and the extraordinary capacity for love that exists within the bond between humans and their animal companions.

  • The Inspiring Journey of Newman: From Struggle to Success

    Meet Newman, the resilient canine who came into our lives from the Animal Foundation (TAF) with a mention of a potential kneecap or knee ligament issue. Little did we know, Newman's journey to healing would unveil a much more challenging path. Upon Newman's arrival, it became evident that something was amiss. His right leg exhibited severe muscle atrophy, and he was visibly in pain. Further investigations through radiographs revealed a harsh reality - Newman had a broken and displaced right femur. The x-rays indicated that the injury had persisted for an extended period, emphasizing the urgency of intervention. In the face of this adversity, hope shone through in the form of Geno's Hope Fund. This vital resource enabled our dedicated team to take swift action and offer Newman the chance at a better life. Through surgical expertise, a metal plate and screws were applied to correct the fracture, with the ultimate goal of saving Newman's leg from the looming specter of amputation. The surgery marked a turning point in Newman's journey, a journey that is now filled with possibilities. Thanks to the compassionate support from Geno's Hope Fund, Newman is on the path to becoming a forever four-legged companion instead of facing the prospect of life on three. Newman's story is a testament to the resilience of animals and the impact of community support. Through adversity, we discovered the strength within Newman, and with the help of Geno's Hope Fund, we were able to rewrite his narrative. As Newman continues his recovery, he symbolizes the transformative power of love, care, and the unwavering dedication of those who believe in second chances. Today, Newman stands as a beacon of hope, a reminder that every broken spirit can be mended, and every journey, no matter how challenging, can lead to a brighter tomorrow. We invite you to follow Newman's inspiring tale as he embarks on this new chapter, filled with the promise of a joyful and fulfilling life ahead.

  • Keeping Your Pets Safe During Coyote Season

    Keeping Your Pets Safe During Coyote Season Coyote season can be a perilous time for our furry friends. These intelligent and adaptable wild canines are known to roam suburban and rural areas, and encounters with domestic dogs can lead to dangerous situations. To ensure your dog's safety during coyote season, it's essential to be proactive and informed. In this blog post, we'll provide you with tips and guidelines to keep your beloved pet out of harm's way. Understanding Coyotes Coyotes are highly adaptable animals that have roamed the Tahoe Basin for generations. They are typically active during the early morning and evening, making them a potential threat to dogs and other pets during these hours. Understanding their behavior is crucial for keeping your pet safe. Leash Up One of the most effective ways to protect your dog during coyote season is to keep them on a leash. This not only prevents them from wandering off but also allows you to maintain control in case of an encounter with a coyote. It's a simple yet highly effective safety measure. Avoid High-Risk Areas Coyotes are often found in parks, open spaces, and wooded areas. Be cautious when walking your dog in these locations during dawn or dusk. Choose well-lit, busy areas for your walks during these times. Secure Your Yard If you have a yard, ensure it's properly secured with a fence that's at least six feet tall. Coyotes are excellent climbers and jumpers, so take precautions to prevent them from entering your property. Make sure your gate is securely closed as well. Supervised Outdoor Time Coyote season may lead to a higher risk of encounters in your yard, even if it's fenced. Keep an eye on your dog when they're outside, especially during dawn and dusk. Supervised outdoor time can prevent unwanted confrontations. Avoid Attractants Coyotes are scavengers and are attracted to food sources. Avoid leaving pet food, garbage, and birdseed outside, as these can draw coyotes into your yard. Additionally, keep your dog's food and water bowls indoors. Outdoor Lighting Install outdoor lighting around your property to deter coyotes from coming too close. They prefer darkness and will be less likely to approach well-lit areas. Training and Recall Teaching your dog a strong recall c ommand can be invaluable. If you spot a coyote during a walk, a reliable recall command can help you bring your dog back to safety promptly. Coyote season doesn't have to be a source of constant worry. By following these precautions and staying vigilant, you can help keep your dog safe and enjoy outdoor activities without undue stress. Understanding coyote behavior, implementing safety measures, and educating your community are essential steps in ensuring your furry friend's well-being. Be proactive, and together we can make coyote season a safer time for our beloved pets.
