Tough Economic Times Force Surrender of Family Pets

Peanut is a German Shorthaired Pointer in need of a home. Her family surrendered her and her companion, Ranger, as they could no longer afford their care. The shelter would like to place them together. At this time, we do not have an open foster home in rescue for the two of them. If you can help by fostering, please contact me at If you are interested in adoption, please contact the shelter at

Natural Flea and Tick Products

If you are looking for an alternative to pesticide treatments, this is a good resource. I never use pesticide treatments on older dogs, as they spend less time outdoors, and, I fear there may be complications with the stronger, pesticide-based spot treatments. You can also feed garlic tablets, based on weight, to help control the fleas and ticks from the "inside out" as the garlic is released through the skin, the dog becomes less attractive to fleas and ticks.
