Jaila was one of the 45 dogs/puppies that we rescued in July and August. This is a perfect picture of how her life changed, and we are so happy that through your support we have been able to change so many lives. As you can imagine the expense of veterinary bills for 45 dogs is quite large!! We are asking that anyone who can, click the donate button on our Facebook page to help towards the bills by donating $1 per dog saved, or whatever you are able to. With your continued support we can make this picture happen for many more dogs!
Today it was up pup and away for 12 special Coconuts heading to the fantastic folks at Furry Friends Adoption, Clinic & Ranch! We had the pleasure of a visit from Ann from Furry Friends who came down to see what efforts are being made here and then she flew home with our lucky pups. We are so grateful to our partners in rescue without borders.
Thank you so much to all of our fosters and volunteers... without you this couldn't be done. And thank you, as always, to Cayman Airways Ltd. who go above and beyond to support our rescue efforts.
We can't wait to start sharing the adoptions!!!
Meet pretty Lydia. We heard about her, a very pregnant female, from a concerned animal lover. Before we could get her she was taken to the Dept. Of Ag. We immediately contacted them to let them know we wanted her and would pick her up on Tuesday when her hold was up. Well... the baby Coconuts didn't want to wait until today! Lydia had her 9 babies overnight last night at the DOA! They are now all safe and secure in a loving foster home.
Update! The names are in!
Meet Rolo, Phish, Rocky Road, Urban Bourbon, Salted Caramel, Toffee, Cookie Dough and Truffle Kerfuffle ~ TK! Thanks for naming the puppies, everyone! And we raised a few bucks to help out the Coconuts!
Our little Coconut, Debby Harry, now known as Kona, is so loved by her new family and spoiled to the max! We love to see updates on our island babies!
Please meet Dixie and DonnaSue, our 2 newest Dept. Of Agriculture rescues. These beauties were very happy to get out! Both were checked out at Island Veterinary Services and are in good shape except that poor DonnaSue is heartworm positive. But we will get her sorted.
Thank you to everyone who has offered to foster. Right now these 2 have safe foster homes to stay in. But it is critical at DOA now as they are full of court and welfare cases which leaves almost no room for the poor guys that are surrendered or picked up on the street and available. We will be keeping a close eye on the situation and may be contacting you in the near future when they need our help again.
So for now, we are happy to say that Dixie and DonnaSue are safe.
It took a little while to find just the right fit for our shy little DOA rescue, Lettie, but we are so excited to announce that she was adopted! The great folks at Animal Haven in NY found her forever family for her. Happy life, sweet Coconut!
A sneak peak at the baby Coconuts that will be needing names in the Name Game tomorrow.. 7 beautiful baby girls!
Today, Debby Harry and Jewell completed their exit exams with flying colors getting ready for their BIG adventure next week! These two and 15 others ... yes, 17 total! will be heading on a grand trip! Stay tuned as tomorrow we start a whole new game of Name that Puppy! We have 7 little Coconuts that need names before they also get their exit exams on Monday!
Meet our newest Dept. Of Agriculture rescues, Bart and Bali. Bart is a happy soul, about 5 years old and, happily heartworm negative! Bali is a beautiful 5 month old baby who needs a bit of time to learn trust but was soooo much calmer and happier after snuggling on my lap at Island Vet after their freedom rides. Both of these gorgeous Coconuts are looking for fosters/ forever homes so please contact us here or at info@ caninefriends.ky if you would like to meet either of these beauties. We have over 30 Coconuts in our care at the moment so we can sure use some help.... even for a short period.
After months of being loved up by her wonderful foster family, it is official! Jessie's adoption papers have been signed! This little girl is so loved and will have the best life ever! Happy life, sweet Jessie!
Luna's Momma wanted to air her bed out a bit.... Luna was fine with the new view!
From tethered girl popping out litter after litter to living the good life in NY! Makes us so happy!
Our beautiful DOA rescue, Walton, is all smiles after completing his 2nd round of heartworm treatment with the great folks at Island Veterinary Services. Now it's just a matter of a few weeks before he will be completely heartworm free... and rumor has it there might be a foster failure.... stay tuned!
Meet sweet Yuengling, our newest Dept. of Agriculture rescue. He has the biggest smile on his face as he is now on the first day of the rest of his now happy life! This boy is on his way to the great folks at Island Veterinary Services to get vetted and stay overnight to start his heartworm treatment. And, luck would have it, we found him a foster home while we were at the vet! So things are definitetly looking up for this Coconut! If you are interested in meeting this guy please message us here or email firstname.lastname@example.org . He loves everybody and other dogs.
From the Dept. of Agriculture to the Big Apple! Here's Una taking in the sights and smells of NYC.
These 5 lucky Coconuts got sprung from the Dept. Of Agriculture this afternoon and are now on the beginning of their new lives. Walton is the fluffy guy. We were hoping that he was heartworm negative but, like so many that we pull from the pound, he is positive. So we will work on getting him healthy. The 4 little pups are Whitney, Wanda, Wade and Wayne. These guys need a bit of socializing but will be good to go in no time.
We really want to help more of the dogs that end up at the DOA but we can't do it without foster homes. So please, if you have ever thought about fostering even for a short time, please contact us. We provide everything you need to care for them. You just provide the love.
Meet handsome Quaid, our newest Dept. of Agriculture rescue. He is a beautiful Shep/ Lab mix and loveable as can be. Unfortunately he is heartworm positive, but will start his treatment soon after his neuter surgery is done next week. In the meantime he will get spoiled and put some much needed weight on at his fantastic foster mom Megan's home.
Although we wanted to pull more than one guy today, we need to wait on a couple of the Coconuts that are there until the proper procedures are followed before we can take them on. Soon come!
It's not only expats that get rolled over and have to leave the island, it happens to our Cayman Coconuts too!
Watch this news bulletin about the latest group of DOA rescues to take flight to forever homes in New York!
What a whirlwind week! This past week has seen Jennifer and Chris from Pets Alive Westchester visiting us, AND not 1, but 2 fundraisers. To top it all off, today 11 of our special Cayman Coconuts flew to New York to find their forever homes with the fantastic folks at Pets Alive Westchester!
We are blown away with the amount of support and love that everyone has shown to help the Coconuts... fosters, volunteers helping at fundraising, donating items for our garage and Ecay sales as well as raffle prizes for our events, donating time to come help at the airport and supporting by attending our fundraisers. You are making a difference and saving lives.
And a BIG thank you to Cayman Airways for making this all possible.
