was taken from Animal Control in Jackson, Mississippi on March 1, 2004. After too long a stay in rescue - far too long for such a GREAT girl - Tula made her way to *another* foster home where she would be the only pet. Tula liked the situation so much she settled right into - right into her foster mom's heart. When a serious application for Tula came in her foster mom, Gina, said "NO GO! Tula girl is already home." She now lives happily ALONE with her mom all to herself.


was surrendered to animal control in Vermillion Parish at the age of 11 weeks because she "wouldn't housebreak." A caring volunteer pulled her from the shelter on the day she was to be euthanized and contacted GCDR.

was an owner surrender to GCDR after the family he was living with decided that he was too much to handle for them. He was advertised "free to a good home", but a vol. for GCDR stepped in and got him into our program where he could find the home he was intended to have. Clint quickly made his way into the foster home of a young vet that volunteers for GCDR in Mobile. One day in the office he struck gold. He now shares a home in Mobile with an older sheperd sister and an adoring mom and dad.


was picked up swimming the Amite River in Ascension Parish in Louisiana - SEVERAL TIMES. Eventually her "owner" failed to claim her and GCDR stepped in. Betsy's physical condition appeared fine, but it was soon discovered her "owner" had not provided her with heartworm prevent and she suffered from a bad case of heartworms. It took some time to get her treated as she required a "staged treatment", but just long enough for the perfect family to come along for the perfect girl. After loosing a beloved and adored Boxer-girl to cancer and hurting deep inside Betsy's soon to be parents discovered love and a healing touch in her. A perfect home for this sweet, gentle girl. Betsy lives in Baton Rouge with a mom, dad, and 10 year old Boxer sister.

We received a call from the SPCA in Picayune regarding a very sweet, friendly Doberman was dropped of there. He had one day before he was euthanized. It was later discovered Magnum's original owners gave him to friends who 'really wanted him', however, the novelty wore off and poor Magnum nearly paid the price. Magnum (now Ike) is living with his new parents and two cats in New Orleans.


was surrendered to GCDR on July 1, 2005 along with his brother "Alexander". They were living with four other dogs in appalling conditions. The owner was no longer able to take care of them. Although he was very nervous and thin he warmed up very quickly to living a good life. Napoleon now lives with his new family which includes a Min Pin, Bruiser (who is his best buddy) and a cat in Hammond, LA.

was found as a stray in Abita Springs, Louisiana and picked up by Animal Control. Cedar hit the jackpot and is now living with his new Dad, a 5 year old and a cat in New Orleans.


was picked up along with his two littermates by animal control when they were discovered wandering the streets in Poplarville, MS. The only male of the group now resides in Covington with an "older" Aussie brother and many, many horses.

came to GCDR as a young puppy and was adopted out. Unfortunately the family that adopted her discovered after a year that she was a bit much for them. Abby returned to GCDR was went to foster with one of the key members of GCDR. The key members "other half" took one look, fell in love, and Abby never looked back. Abby now lives with mom, dad, a collection of children and Apollo - another GCDR success story.  


made his way to GCDR from Tennessee. If we could have cloned big old Festus, we would have. The big, goofy boy made victims of cupid's arrow immediately of his new family. They adored him at first sight. They HAD to have him. Festus now lives with his new family in Slidell, LA and sometimes go to work with his new Dad where he has 10 acres to run on and pond to swim in.
