Furry Friday 3/23/12

Ready for Furry Friday? Well, Here you go! Today we have picked three rescues to highlight. The first is a newer rescue located in Danville, PA. Karamber’s Rescue is a small rescue located in a boarding/grooming business near Interstate 80 in Danville, PA. The two ladies that run the rescue, Kathy and Amber, are two truly compassionate people that definitely take the animal’s best interests to heart and do everything possible to find them the best homes.

Here are some dogs from Karamber’s: Gretchen and Thor

These German Shepherds were rescued from a life outside and will need house training, but are making progress. They would do best in a home where they are the only dog so they get proper attention. They are both very sweet and love attention.



There is also Neena, a sweet four month old Pit Bull puppy and Angel a 6 year old Alaskan Eskimo / Spitz mix who is a total sweetheart, good with kids, cats, and other dogs and deserves a wonderful home.



Please contact Karamber’s by visiting their site or calling (570)764-2801 and e-mailing for more information on any of their available dogs.

The next shelter is Hillside SPCA in Pottsville, PA. I know I’ve highlighted this rescue before but I think they are a great rescue that does everything possible for the animals they have in their care.

They are truly unique, drastically limiting the time their animals are in crates or cages and interacting with the dogs and cats as much as possible. Here are two dogs available from Hillside.

This puppy’s story is heartbreaking. This is Bear. He was stomped on by a juvenile visiting the home where he lived. He was stomped so hard that it broke his femur. The incident occured March 10th and he was not brought into Hillside until March 16th. He was in agonizing pain and in shock. Hillside took him to the Veterinarian and had his leg repaired. He needs the best home possible!! Visit his post for the whole story. He is a Shar Pei/German Shepherd Mix.


And this sweetheart also has a sad story. This is Captain, a young male Pit Bull, who was found as a stray with a bulging eye. After a vet visit, it was determined Captain has glaucoma and is currently receiving treatment. You can get more information on Captain by accessing his post here.

The last rescue featured this week is Animal Resource Center in Bloomsburg, PA. This is a large rescue that tries to help as many local animals as possible. It is a rescue, not an SPCA,  and it is also no-kill.

Princess is one of the dogs at Animal Resource Center. She is a 5 year old Irish Setter / Saint Bernard mix who was surrendered when her owner had to move to a high-rise apartment. Her owner was devastated. Princess deserves a great home! Visit her post for more information. You can contact Animal Resource center by clicking here.  Be sure to visit their site to see some of the many animals available.

Reminder: Furry Friday is in no way sponsored by any of the rescues or shelters featured or This series of posts is simply my way of showing my readers some of the many animals looking for their forever homes.
