Sanctuary at Saving Furry
Often we rescue last chance pets that cannot be adopted for
different reasons; medical, behavioral or age but they deserve
that same chance at life as any other dog or cat. This is where
Saving Furry Friends Sanctuary is so important.
Here, in lovely rural Virginia, on our beautiful acreage,
they can live, they romp and play but most of all, they can
Many of these dogs require a great deal of medical care and
supervision and with the help of volunteers, they receive
everything they need. They are loved and nurtured. They are
free to live out their lives in comfort, cared for by gentle
hands and loving hearts.
Meet some of our Sanctuary Pets!
Jerry was turned into the county pound by his owners who
claimed he was viscious. Four days after he was rescued by us
he came down with parvo. Thankfully he survived and is
adjusting and thriving here!
He's cute, he's fuzzy but don't get your fingers too
Saddie~ Saddie and her sister Sara where rescued from the
local county pound. Saddie will stay here with us as she has a
seizure disorder. (Photo coming soon)
Suzie~ Suzie is a 9 year old beagle that came to us from the
Fairhaven Mass. Animal Shelter. She was so badly mistreated
that it took us 7 months to be able to hold her without her
shaking. She also had 6 teeth that required surgical extraction
as they were loose and/or broken. It appreared that someone had
hit her in the face with an object or kicked her. Because of
her fear of new people she will not be available for adoption
but rather she will live out the rest of her days here with us.

Buddy is a 5 year old Akita/Boarder Collie mix. He was
picked up by the Dartmouth Mass Animal Shelter during the
blizzard of 2004. He has a tendancy to be human aggressive and
therefore will also not be placed for adoption but rather live
out his days here with us.
What can we say, after nursing him back to health, from the
brink of death after a severe case of parvo almost took him
from us, we simply can not part with him.
Is a 8 year old shepard that was a former bait dog. She was
thrown into a pitbull fighting ring in NC where both of her
hind legs were both torn off. She will stay with us for the
remainder of her life where she will know love and
