We could not rescue dogs without the unending support of the many big hearted people and many generous businesses that support our efforts.
Arapaho Road Animal Clinic
Arapaho Road Animal Clinic and Dr. May provides amazing medical support and advise. Treating unsocialized street dogs is challenging at best. Dr. May always handles the dogs with respect and care. She has diagnosed and treated our rescued dogs and cats, many of who were near death, and helped nurse them back into healthy, thriving pets that will live long fulfilled lives.
The Arapaho Road staff also works patiently with the rescued animals to help socialize and rehabilitated them. Their time and care is a big part of the many rehabilitation success stories.
And most impactful, the clinic owner, Dr. Perkins, grants us a generous discount on all rescue services and allows us to run a revolving account. This special arrangement allows us to treat the dogs in the most appropriate manner based on medical, not financial, needs.
Check out their website, follow them on Facebook, support their business – they are a great bunch of animal loving, caring professionals. (Don’t ask for free stuff unless you have known one of the Doctors since you were 13 years old.)
In addition to the Arapaho Road Animal Clinic, the following are some of the groups that we work with on a regular basis in our rescue efforts. Please let them know you support their rescue efforts by supporting their business or rescue group. Visit their websites or call them for more information.

Nelson Hodges /Animal Behaviorist
Nelson Hodges stepped forward and has donated his time and expertise working with us on our rehabilitation efforts for the husky. His guidance has been invaluable and we are making great strides with our husky, Tasha. He is helping us teach her how to pack with humans, advising us on what kind of enclosure is best for huskies and he is sharing with us 40 years of behavioral experience and 20 plus years of husky expertise.
Nelson is a Professional Member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP), and is listed as a professional member under “Training” and “Behavior Modification”, on their website at www.canineprofessionals.com.
Nelson has a book coming out, “If You Want to Learn How to Talk to Your Dog, Shut Your Mouth” – which may have a colorful follow up called, “How I got Fran to hold still and shut her mouth while working with Tasha”….but that’s another story….
Dr. Sunny Ruth
Dr. Ruth worked closely with us on the husky rescue. She generously donated her time and services to remove the husky’s broken teeth. Dogs are like people, broken bad teeth are painful and sensitive. Dr. Ruth removed the husky’s broken eye tooth and all of her broken tooth roots that were below the surface.
We are filming Tasha’s major milestones and will be releasing a documentary that chronicles her story and works to educate and petition the city to change Dallas Animal Control’s best practices.
