Meet the Residents

  • Sally – Forever Foster

    Age: 10

    Sally is one of the younger residents and has brought us so much love and laughter is just a short period of time. She was a severely neglected owner give-up who arrived in deplorable condition—underweight, covered in bodily waste and completely matted. She is now one happy, carefree little girl that is more of a puppy than her estimated 8-10 years indicates. She loves to play with toys, get hugs and lap time from her humans, and playtime with her Forever Foster, Frances and her family

  • BooBoo – Forever Foster

    Age: 15

    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.

  • Poppy showing off her favorite tooth

    Poppy – Forever Foster

    Age: 15

    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.

  • Bear and Lori right after he came to HWAH

    Bear – Forever Foster

    Age: 15

    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!!!!

  • Gidget - Lives with Nancy

    Gidget – Forever Foster

    Age: 15

    Poor little Gidget could easily be confused for a dirty lump of fur when she was found on the street in Baltimore. but a thorough grooming revealed an adorable little pup. Gidget is a sweet senior Lhasa Apso who lives with Nancy and her other Foster charges. Gidget may be blind, but with some guidance she is able to get around fairly well- even going up and down stairs and over obstacles. She can also walk well on a leash, though it’s at her own pace because this sweet girl is certainly no aspiring track star. This little couch potato is happy to snooze the day away with her tongue peeking out, and would be even happier to do so with company on a nice comfy couch or her very own dog bed

  • Marlie Profile

    Marlie

    Age: 13

    Dixie and Marlie had lived their entire lives in a local community of Sisters, however, the Sisters have been relocated, all but one to nursing homes. So they were unable to keep their beloved pups, and we are glad to welcome them to HWAH

    Dixie was a spayed female Rat Terrier. She was friendly and incredibly loving, but we lost her March 8th 2019 after a trying illness of pancreatitis.

    Her companion, Marlie, is a neutered male toy Australian Shepherd. He is a very dedicated, affectionate, faithful and loving boy.  We enjoy teaching Marlie more tricks. Marlie also takes very seriously the herding characteristic of his breed.

    Tinker does enjoy being held and petted but is also cautious with new people.  Once she knows she can trust you she quickly adapts and enjoys interacting.  She has a great appetite and will let you know when she wants to go out
