​Hello and good afternoon everyone my name is #GordyBFF and I have a very sad story to tell you....I was surrendered by my family...for reasons I can’t begin to understand...what did I do?  I am only a year and a month old...I am so loving and sweet...I guess they just didn’t love me anymore...I was heartbroken the day they took me to Animal Care and Control...where they just dropped me off...didn’t even cry...they just signed me over and left...there I stood all alone...scared and very nervous...the ladies behind the counter had such compassion for me...they took my picture and gave me a necklace with numbers on it...they said I was going to have to see the doctor for an examination....they saw that I hadn’t been neutered...they said once I had my procedure that they would let me rest and send out a rescue request...in the meanwhile I met aunt Suzy she had such compassion for me....she knew I was scared and she helped me get out of my shell...she is an amazing human...she told me I was going to go to Barky Pines that’s an animal rescue...and that’s just what happened...aunt Mary came to ACC to pick me up...she had a warm smile and I felt comfort in that...she told me she was going to take me out to her families farm...and when I was signed out...off we went to the long drive out to the country...when we arrived I was greeted by aunt Liz...her smile melted my heart...and she knew that I was thankful for her to welcome me into her home...uncle Steve came to meet me too...they brought me to Rita’s Cat House...where I met my new roommates...everyone had a wagging tail...and big smiles on their faces...when we went inside...I had a cozy bed and a soft blanket and a delicious bowl of crunchies...when I rested that night I slept well...in the comfort of my new housing...I am a super sweet and friendly fella I am 1 year and a month old ..I weigh about 6 lbs...I am up to date on all my vaccines including my rabies vaccine...I have a microchip too...if you or anyone you know may be interested in meeting me...please don’t hesitate to ask...thank you for reading my story...thank you for caring...and especially for sharing...your friend Gordy...


Hello and good afternoon everyone I would like to introduce myself...my name is #CallieBPFF...and I wanna share my story with you...well a while back me and my four babes were hanging out at the local Home Depot Store...where they were born...we hid...scared and not knowing what to do...then...uncle Craig...spotted us...it was aunt Emily...who was able to catch all four of my babes...I wasn’t caught at that time...aunt Emily...took them warm place where they felt safe...then...aunt Patricia came back and got me....she contacted her friend aunt Liz...she has an animal rescue called Barky Pines...and she asked if she would be willing to take us all in...and can you guess what she said?  She said yes she could and yes she would...sooo...aunt Patricia drove us all out to Barky Farms...we were happy to be all together...and when we got to meet aunt Liz...she was happy to see us all..my babes were so little at that time...and when she brought us to Rita’s House...I got to see the happy faces of all the other rescued cats, kittens, and pups...we all felt a sense of belonging and that...made us very very happy in our hearts...I’ve been here now watching my babes growing stronger every day...and getting big...I was already fixed..that sounded scary at first cause I thought I was  broken...but I wasn’t ... that’s what all rescued cats and pups have to do...so now that my babes are grown..and don‘t need their Momma like they used to...it‘s time for me and all of them to find our own forever homes...if you or anyone you know is looking for an adorable young lady...I may be the answer to your prayers...until then...I will be here at Barky Pines...in the comfort of their loving home.

Hello and good morning I would like to introduce myself my name is #EllaBPFF....I just became a new member of the Barky Pines family...and I would like to share my story with you...I had a home once...a family...who didn’t do a very good job of caring for me...sooo one day...I wandered off...my body ached sooo bad...my crusty skin cracks and it’s oozing it’s so painful but I kept on going.....each step I took made my feet bleed more and more...but I kept going....I finally rested in some shrubs along the side of the road...a man was walking his dog...and that pup kept walking towards where I was laying...finally the man comes over to investigate....the look of shock and horror on his face made me feel so sad..and thought...who would want to help a sick and crusty little girl...I wouldn‘t blame him if he walked away...I saw my reflection in a window...and started to cry......but then compassion and sympathy took over and I knew his heart was in the right place...he couldn’t believe anyone would neglect such a beautiful pup like me...he couldn’t believe I was actually able to walk with my feet sooo swollen...he knew that I was in pain all over...and knew he had to help me...and that’s just what he did...he carried me to safety and told me he was going to take me to Animal Care and Control and they would be able to help me...so he gently picked me up and carried me to his car...we arrived at ACC and everyone was just as shocked as he was when they first saw me...compassion...sympathy...sadness it was obvious that they felt bad for me...they processed me in...and brought me in to see the doctor...they were very very worried about me not being able to survive through the night...they were worried that I was too sick...just as they were talking about what to do.....aunt Suzy...happened to passing by and overheard them talking...when she saw me...her heart sank...she said that she wanted to take me home...you see she works miracles  with pups who have my skin condition...they told me about the many pups she has nursed back to health...they agreed that she could take me home that night...she told me not to worry that she knew exactly what to do for me...that with medicine...and tender loving care....and time....I would be beautiful on the outside once again...I was so very happy to hear those words...my heart melted...she finished her day and gathered a few things and she gently placed me in her car...when we got to her house I was greeted by her pups...they’ve seen pups like me before...some worse than me...they didn’t seem to mind I’m all crusty and stinky...they welcomed me in like they knew me forever...aunt Suzy gave me a warm bath...with medicated shampoo...and the touch of her hands on my skin...made me feel so good...she took such wonderful care of me...and when I slept that night...I felt loved for the first time in months...someone actually cared about me...they want me to get better...aunt Suzy told me that I would be going to aunt Lauren’s house and she was going to foster me...and she has a pup named Franky who had the same skin condition I do and that she is now absolutely beautiful and before you know it...I will be too...sooo the other day...I got to meet my foster Mom and she held me so gently and I knew this woman will keep her promise and care for me too....she brought me home with her and I got to meet my new friends...and she was right Franky is beautiful...and I felt confident to know...that someday soon...I will be beautiful too...I am so deeply grateful to all you who have cared about me...the man who found me...my friends at ACC...to aunt Suzy...for her loving caring heart...and to my foster Mom....for welcoming me into not only her home...but her heart as well...and to aunt Liz...for welcoming me as one of her new rescues...God bless you all...well I better get going...time for a nap...thank you all for your love and support...I know in my heart...that angels to exist...cause I’ve met so many wonderful caring people...thank you for reading my story...thank you for caring...and especially...for sharing...your new friend Ella...woof woof

Hello and good afternoon everyone I would like to introduce myself my name is #NuggetBPFF and I want to share my story with you....well I had wandered off my property one day...and was attacked by a dog in my neighborhood..I was totally defenseless...and I was so scared...they were much bigger than me.....and before you know it...I was on the ground...being bitten all over..I thought my life was going to end right then and there....but...thankfully someone saw what was going on...I was laying on the ground....and they carefully picked me up...and carried me back home... I was a bloody mess...they hurt me soooo bad...they tore open my back and my legs and I was in agony..well my family didn‘t know what to do at that moment....they decided....that they weren’t going to keep me...and they told me that they were going to surrender me to Animal Care and Control...I couldn’t believe that they would do this to me...I was shocked...who would surrender their pup in their greatest time of need..why didn‘t they want to help me.......the day the brought me to ACC....I felt completely abandoned by my family...and when they left...they didn’t even say goodbye to me...the women behind the counter...immediately took me in to see the doctor...they had to stitch me up...and they were very concerned about me...then I met aunt Suzy...and she said if it was ok...that she would bring me to her house...and that’s just what she did....she cared enough about me to help me...and my heart was full of gratitude to her...she couldn‘t believe that my family would abandon me in this condition.....she said she spoke to aunt Liz with Barky Pines...and once I was well enough...I would be going out to her families farm...she told me wonderful things about them...and I was excited to know I would someday be part of their rescue...in the mean while...aunt Suzy took me to see Dr. Lily and she checked me all out...she said that with lots of rest...and some tender loving care...I would be feeling better soon...that was music to my ears...cause I haven’t been feeling too good lately as you can imagine...the stitches are starting to itch as my wounds are healing...and I’m still sore on the inside...aunt Suzy took wonderful loving care of me....she was so sweet and gentle.......and then after a few days...when I was feeling better she said I was ready to go  to the farm....aunt Suzy brought me to work. that day....and that‘s when I got to meet aunt Mary.....she came to ACC to pick me up...she looked at me with such compassion in her eyes...I felt comfort in that....she told me that her and her family...were going to take wonderful care of me.....and with plenty of rest...I will be feeling better in no time....she signed me out...and off we went on that long drive to the country...when we arrived I was greeted by aunt Liz...she had that same look of compassion in her eyes...and it warmed my heart.....she walked us over to Rita‘s Cat House....where she had a large crate set up for me...with a cozy bed and a warm blanket...she said I needed to rest...so that my wounds would heal quickly and I would feel better...my new room mates all came over to greet me with tails wagging...they knew I was in a lot of pain....so they sniffed and went back to what they were doing...I settled right in...and before you know it...I fell fast asleep...later on when I woke up aunt Liz was walking in the door and I got to meet uncle Steve then too...they both saw that I was comfortable...and they were happy to know I felt safe with them...I went outside a little while...and the warmth of the sun felt so good on my wounds....my inside wounds will take a while to heal...they said I have a few fractured ribs...and that rest...is what I need...and rest is what I am getting...I am so thankful to aunt Liz for answering that call for help...and grateful to be part of this loving rescue...I will be looking for my forever home...before you know it....I am blind in one eye...but I get along just fine with the other one...I am about 8 years old...I am up to date on all my shots including my rabies vaccine...I also have a microchip...if you or anyone you know...would like to open their home and hearts to sweet girl...I might be the answer to your prayers...till then...I will be here...making friends...well I better get going...I do need my rest...thank you all for reading my story...thank you all for caring...and especially...for sharing...your friend Nugget...woof woof   #BPFF

Hello and good afternoon everyone I would like to introduce myself...my name is #DuckyBPFF and I would like to share my story with you...well one day a few weeks ago....me and my housemate  (maybe my daughter)....decided to take a walk...and left our yard.....we walked and walked and after a while we realized...we were lost...we didn’t know what to do...and how to get back home...so we just kept on walking...we were getting tired...and it was getting late...and we wondered if our families were aware...that we were gone...were they worried about us?  Would they be out looking for us....we worried that we would never find our way back...and we never did...we gave up all hopes of ever going back home...scared and all alone...we rested a little while...huddled together for comfort....until someone saw us and decided to stop and help...our hearts were pounding with gratitude that they cared enough......first thing they noticed was we didn’t have collars on...and that meant no identification...well that wasn’t good...they did the right thing and brought us both to Animal Care and Control...where they scanned us both...only to find we didn’t have microchips...that’s when we both got really worried...how would they find our family?  They told us not to worry that they would take good care of us...they took our pictures and gave us necklaces with numbers on it...they said they were going to take us to see their doctor...and when they did...they said we both needed to be fixed...lost and broken...that didn’t sound good...and I got really scared...then...they explained that all pups male and female...need to be fixed and that we would be just fine...we felt a little better knowing that.....and when we had our surgeries...we realized that they were right...after a few days...we were feeling better......then we found out that we were going to be taken  to an Animal Clinic where we would be in boarding...while they contacted a few local rescues   to see who would be able to help her help us.....and that’s when they got in touch with aunt Liz from Barky Pines...and asked if she would be able to take us in...and she said yes...yes she could and yes she would...we met her sister aunt Mary that day...she came and picked us up.. she told us not to worry that she would take us out to her family’s farm..where we would be welcomed into their rescue......after she signed us out....so she put us both in her car...and off we went for the long drive out to the country....when we got to the farm that afternoon we  saw so many chickens ducks and geese running and flying around...two male cows and a little piglet named Oliver...they were all having a wonderful time....our hearts were filled with gratitude...that we were in such a beautiful place...then we got to meet  aunt Liz.. she had such a warm welcoming smile on her face...I felt something....in my heart...and knew that we would be just fine....we were brought to Rita‘s Cat House....and .all our new roommates came to greet us...tails wagging and lots of sniffing...they all welcomed us...like we were long lost friends.....aunt Liz.... had a cozy spot for us to settle into with a soft bed and a warm blanket...she had prepared a bowl of delicious crunchies for us...we were ready for a nap after all the excitement....and .after we settled in and rested a while...we got to meet uncle Steve...he too had that same look of compassion on his face...and we both felt at home...what a blessing that we are here.....with all these other rescues...who share a common bond with us.....that night...when I slept...I had dreams...of a loving forever home...with a family...who would not let me just  wander off...a family who would cherish me forever and ever....I have made so many new friends here at Barky Farms...and hope that someday soon someone will see my picture...and think I would be the perfect addition to their loving home...I am a 2 year old mixed breed..I weigh about 16 lbs...I am up to date on all my vaccines including my rabies...I have been fixed...and I have a microchip...I am a super sweet friendly pup...and would love to meet the perfect family...if you or any one you know is looking for a young sweetheart...please don’t hesitate to ask....well I better go now....thank you for reading my story...thank you all for caring and especially....for sharing...your friend Ducky....woof woof...#BPFF
