Raising the (Barn) Roof on October 11

Maude and Eddie were kind enough to model for us to help announce our yearly fun-raiser at the Rescue Barn. The Pits & Giggles event is coming up quick --> Saturday evening, October 11.

Celebrating our 15th B-day (which was back in April) and a great year of good saves and satisfying outreach work.

We look forward to enjoying time with our friends and supporters as well as many of our alumna dogs who will be there with their families. Cajun food, Zydeco music, a warming campfire and good conversation. What could be better?

Tickets Here

If you can't attend, please consider gifting a ticket to an area shelter worker or rescue volunteer. There's an option on our event page that signals your interest in donating this way.
Thank you, and hope to see you on the dance floor real soon!

a view from the inside

Generally, the barn blog features pictures of the rescue dogs romping or doing activities out in the yard.  But the kennels inside the barn can give you  a glimpse of each dog's personality.  Let's take a look.

Little Chiquita is well known for her love of stuffies and tennis balls.  Here she is presiding proudly over her nest of favored indoor toys, complete with an overstuffed teddy bear that's almost as large as she is.  She keeps her little "family" together where she can watch over them.

And the delicious Ms Maude is shown here with her beloved armchair, ahhh!  This girl with her wonky hip is all about comfort.  Who needs toys when you have something soft and squishy to snuggle up on?  All that's needed is an attentive human cuddling in the chair with her to bring her to a state of nirvana.

Check out Preston's frat pad.  He's all boy, toys scattered around, a beat-up armchair (he loves chewing on it) with his mess spilling out of the kennel.  A little messy suits him just fine - let's just call it "lived-in".  He just loves a good party.

 His dainty neighbor Gwennie, on the other hand, is more of a minimalist.   Her toys & blankets are neatly contained in her bed where she serenely watches the antics of her fellow barn residents.  Like a little black dress, this little black dog isn't showy or extroverted, but when you get to know her you'll see that she's a classy and intelligent girl.

These pictures were taken before the arrival of the new guy, Badda Bing, so we've yet to see what his kennel reveals about him.

addicted to love

Though Reverend Al has taken his bounty of block-head love to his new family, a new messenger of love has taken his place in the barn.
It's Badda Bing, who unaware of the furor leading to his arrival at the rescue barn, is settling in nicely.

On Labor Day morning, his second morning at the barn, after exercising, eating, and working on his manners, he got a relaxing sponge bath from Jr. Barn Crew Kiki and melted into a blissed out giant 'butter bean'.

Oh yeah! Touch Junkie in the house!
