More about In the Arms of Angels and what a wonderful rescue they are Star light, star bright. Which star will I adopt tonight?

In the Arms of Angels

Mira star

In the Arms of Angels

Adopt me: Polaris

The six scared stars were rescued from a local shelter. These six little stars were at risk of euthanasia for being timid and under-socialized. The stars were divided into three different foster homes to make socializing them easier. The stars were came down with kennel cough and during the course of antibiotic treatments the stars began to shine. They are now happy, healthy, and looking for their forever homes. The stars are just under six months old. (top left: Sirius)

Here is Antares dog star – he looks like a Bengal tiger and gets along with other dogs.

Mira is a gentle girl and has great house manners although she aspires to be a couch potato as she longs to be up on the couch. Perhaps she’s your next lap dog?

Polaris (Polly) prefers laying down and chewing on bones rather than running around with toys, although does enjoy the occasional romp. She often needs guidance from her people before being introduced to new things and people, but quickly becomes comfortable in new settings. She absolutely loves and adores her humans

Rigel, or as his foster moms call him “Mr. Wiggles,” is a happy little guy full of enthusiasim. He loves to play, with other dogs and toys although he may get possessive of his toys around other dogs. He is a little mischievous and always finds a way to entertain himself, whether it’s with a rock or your shoes!

Bridge Rescue for Dogs Tucson

Bridge saved Simon’s life

Beading Divas to the Rescue is excited to be fundraising for Bridge Rescue for Dogs during the month of September.

Simon was found as a stray with a carabiner hook impaled into his chest and dragging a chain through the hook. No one claimed responsibility for his injuries, and he languished at Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) for weeks as he recovered physically and began the emotional healing process after the torture he endured.

PACC staff contacted BRDG because they knew that Simon would not fare well long-term in the stressful, noisy and scary shelter setting. BRDG was up to the task and not only found the perfect family to adopt Simon, but also raised funds to enroll him in a 30-day Board and Train program through sol.DOG Services at a cost of $1,500.

Simon flourished in his training program. After graduation, he moved to his forever home with a fabulous adoptive family who loves him. While we will never be able to make up for the atrocious act he endured, Bridge Rescue is proud to have played a part in his successful recovery and are so very grateful to the donations that made his happy ending possible.

Meet Bridge Rescue Saturday September 5 / Pet Club – Kolb & Broadway/ 10:30 AM to 2 PM – For a $20 donation, you can choose a beautiful bracelet with paw charm

Tucson fundraiser for dog rescue

Miss Maggie May made me whole again

On September 13, 2013 Miss Maggie May’s Rescue went to PACC to pick up Morgan who had 7 puppies less then 4 days old. When we got to the shelter there was a mix up and the shelter thought we were there to get Pipster who gave birth to 4 puppies the night before.

We found out that both moms came in together, so we took both families. Thirteen pups total on Friday the 13th of all days.

Once we got the moms settled into their new digs, is was apparent that something wasn’t right with Pipster’s left eye. The notes from the shelter said cloudy eye. We had it checked by one of our vets and there was no need to be alarmed at that time It was soon time to have Pipster spayed and we asked the vet to re- check her eye which was determined at that time her eye needed to be removed as it was starting to press on her nerve and would cause too many other problems if left in.
The next day when Pipster was picked up, the vet placed something in the transporter’s hand. It was a BB, Pipster was shot in the inside corner of her eye with a BB. So Pipster hung out in her foster home to recover and started attending adoption events.

Morgan was adopted in December 2013, but Pipster continued to wait and wait.

In March 2014 a couple saw Pipster and decided to give her a great home. Pipster is now Nikki and has two large buddies in her new home; she goes on long walks and from the reports we get — she is doing great.

Beading Divas to the Rescue loves these happy ending stories. Thank you to Miss Maggie May’s Rescue for all you do to help these dogs. It takes time, patience, and funds to make it happen.

Miss Maggie May's Rescue

Luna says: Adopt me!

This month Beading Divas to the Rescue is excited to be raising funds for:

Miss Maggie May’s Rescue is committed to finding safe and caring homes for unwanted dogs. MMMR is a Tucson-based all volunteer rescue group providing medical care, spay/neuter and vaccinations for dogs that have found themselves deemed not adoptable in our local shelter such as moms to be, families, puppies, sick or injured dogs.

Luna is a two year old Papillon mix. In May her owner took her and her one week old puppies to Pima county shelter. MMMR was able to get her and her pups out before they got sick.

Luna did a good job raising her pups in foster care and all pups found homes. Luna was a very scared little girl with trust issues when she came to MMMR. Luna is still looking for someone special, who will take the time she needs to trust, and the extra time she needs to trust men. Once you gain her trust she is a lap dog and loves to be petted.
Luna is current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed and licensed in Pima County.

So let’s consider helping out Miss Maggie May’s Rescue. You can buy bracelets or make a donation directly.

Bob loves life!

Bob loves life!

Update: GOOD NEWS – Bob was adopted today – Nov. 23

For the month of November 2013, Beading Divas to the Rescue is honored to be raising money through bracelet sales for In the Arms of Angels All Breed Dog & Cat Rescue.

Started at the end of November 2010, AOA has adopted out more than 1,000 pets so far. Amazingly, they have approximately 100 fosters homes for dogs & cats! AOA pulls most of the pets from PACC (Pima Animal Care Center). Many of these pets are urgent or special needs. AOA supplies food for foster pets and pays for medical expenses thru designated veterinarians.

Above is a handsome fellow that would be a good fit for almost any home. Bob absolutely loves life, he has never met a person or a dog he doesn’t like and he is currently trying to learn that cats makes good friends too. Bob loves to explore the yard and enjoys hunting for lizards. He also loves playing fetch and catch. He is an intelligent guy who is very eager to please and already knows a few commands.

Bob adores car rides and he adores the attention of his humans. Bob is very tolerant with kids and had no objections to his foster sister trying to climb on him. Bob is not cat approved at this time, but he is making great strides at coexisting with his feline fosters. All together Bob is quite well rounded. Is Bob the dog for you?

AOA also has about 50 available cats.

Let’s sell a whole lot of bracelets this month! There are so many opportunities for where to buy them. As you can imagine with so many adoptions under their belt, AOA has a full schedule of meet & greets. Check them out as well as the beautiful bracelets which cost $20 and the entire $20 goes directly to AOA. You can pay cash or write a check payable to AOA.
