The picture seems to be saying, “What about Me?”  Carmen has been overlooked a number of times.  She is a sweet gal, a Chow Chow mix and loves people and most dogs.  She needs to find a home that will love her and take her to be spayed.  We will not be spaying for a few monthsImagebecause of the lack of funds. I can see Carmen with a family with children 8 years and up.  If you are interested, give us a call  at 402-846-5100.

Update from 12 Hills Dog Rescue—-Everything is on Hold!!!

Well, here we go–our first crisis involving funds for our rescue.  With the crops frying in the field and no rain, we cannot afford to spay and neuter any dogs for awhile.  We did 9 last month, and it pretty much drained the 12 Hills Dog Rescue account.  We will need to save our monies for food for the ones we still have.

So things are tight here, and we hope new families will adopt the doggies as they are.  We have so many sweet dogs that are very social.  This week we rescued 3 puppies that look like they are 3 months of age.  They were dumped, full of ticks and starving.  We are still trying to catch the last one, and the extreme hot weather makes it worse.  This is a picture of the little Apple heads that we took in last week. They are adorable and their hair is growing back.  They still need another week or 2, and then ready for their new families.Image,

Sweet Little Gal—Can’t You Tell???

We named her Roxie, and she came to us from a nice lady, who knew she was in trouble.  She was full of fleas and ticks and pregnant.  Roxie was treated and bathed and is now waiting for the arrival of her puppies in a few days.  She is pretty thin, but hoping for a healthy delivery and some puppies that look like their Mama.

Roxie looks a little like a Westie Mix to us–but we never know.  Look for her picture and her puppies in the days ahead.Image

Zoey and Oliver—We have our Work Cut Out for Us!

What a sad sight! 2 little mangy puppies with bloated tummies were brought to 12 Hills this past weekend. They have been bathed, treated for mange and wormed.  Now, we just need to give them the extra care they need before they can go on to their new families. Watch for them in a few weeks–When they are all better, we will place them on facebookImageand petfinder.com

What Breed is Bella?

What breed is Bella? I guess it doesn’t matter to many people.  Picking out a family member at 12 Hills, isn’t usually breed specific.  A rescue like ours takes in mostly mixed breeds that have beenImageabandoned or surrendered.  Part of the time, the doggies are on death row when they come to us, or they are in need of some tender loving care. Bella looked a little rough when we got her. She had just weaned her puppies and was ready for some needed rest and good care.  Bella is looking great now, and is ready for her new family.  Even if we are unsure of her breed—she is a beauty.
