Meet the Residents

  • Gianni

    Age: 20

    Gianni, a dashing Balinese came to HWAH along with his “brother” Giorgio, now passed.  These two beautiful boy kitties were loved deeply by their family.  When a family member developed severe allergies they came to live at HWAH.  The other family members who are not allergic visit HWAH to spend time loving him and giving him a good brushing. 

    He is a calm and sweet cat who has quite a Fan Club among the Kitty volunteers. Our Wednesday volunteer, Angela, loves to give Gianni a bath and blow dry. He loves it, but seems to be camera shy…

  • Raja

    Age: 19

    Raja…. loves his cozy bed. Try as we might to get him to sleep in the Doggie Den, Kitchen or Office he always goes back down to the Sunroom and finds a soft bed to snuggle in. He is an 18yr old pup whose parent can no longer care for him. He is a true little character!!

    He is a solitary Gent. I have to tell you a little about him. He doesn’t see well or hear well either so when he is outside walking around I have to sneak up behind him and then quickly scoop him up to bring him back in. He is always calm and allows it and i ALWAYS think if it were me I would be totally terrified of someone grabbing me from behind.

  • BooBoo – Forever Foster

    Age: 16

    Darling little BooBoo is a blind 13-year-old poodle mix who was abandoned by his family in North Carolina. They dropped him off at their vet and walked away. When we saw his sad story, we immediately went into action and had him transported to us by wonderful volunteers. We fixed him up and sent out a plea for a new forever home. But he stole our hearts and we just couldn’t let him go, so we adopted him. Now he has the comfort, love, and safety of never being abandoned again. He is such a snuggle bug and is now a HWAH Forever Foster with Nancy and her family.

  • Bear – Forever Foster

    Age: 16

    Bear was left behind when his owner could no longer care for him. He arrived at HWAH with toenails so long that it hurt him to walk. He needed to be neutered, have a good teeth cleaning and a tumor removed. Bear has come through all of his medical challenges with flying colors and is now living with one of our HWAH Angels, Lori. Bear is joining Lori and her husband John and their other rescue senior pup, Poppy. Lori is truly practicing Love Lives Here!!!!

  • Happy

    Happy

    Age: 16

    Our boy, Happy, is true to his name. This jovial and bouncy Bichon Frise enjoys every minute of his life, despite the fact that he’s lost the use of his back legs. Unfortunately, neurological consults and physical therapy confirmed that his condition can’t be corrected. But Happy doesn’t let it stop him! He can run races in his “doggie wheels,” and make his way around the Sanctuary on his own. Happy sleeps in his own crib and loves to be cuddled by his favorite people. His former family loved him and still visits him occasionally, but just couldn’t handle the demands of caring for a paraplegic pup.

  • Daphne

    Age: 16

    This darling thirteen-year-old Chihuahua was rescued from a puppy mill and taken to the local shelter. Unfortunately, while in foster care, she jumped off a chair and broke her leg and the same thing happened in her second foster placement! When the shelter wanted to amputate her leg or euthanize her, we brought her to the Sanctuary. Luckily under our care, Daphne’s leg healed without the need for further surgery and she’s been fine ever since. She loves getting up on her back legs, and dancing.

  • Poppy – Forever Foster

    Age: 16

    When Poppy arrived at HWAH she was suffering terribly with skin allergies. Much of her hair was missing and her teeth were a mess. Poppy’s Mom had not been able to care for her as she herself had to go into a nursing home, and her family reached out to us. The moment we met this girl, we fell in love. She is ADORABLE! Her personality is LOVEBUG. Poppy is a Forever Foster with Lori and John and their other HWAH Forever Foster pup, Bear.
