Life is Like a Box of Chocolates

Update:  This post was written on April 3rd.  This morning, I received a text from Terri that Matthew McConaughey is getting worse.  What is it with these pups who get kennel cough, improve and then take a nose dive?  Terri is taking Matthew to the vet this morning.   Who knew that giving Journey the […]

I Have a Dream

Written July 22, 2011 Rescue is simply not making a difference. Several months ago, I was on the phone with Dale Parrent. We wondered why some people find it acceptable to dump litter after litter at the pound. Why won’t people spay and neuter? Last month 4 purebred adult Border Collies and a litter of […]

Homeless Dogs – Comparing 2007 to 2013

Back in 2007, I designed a video based on raw numbers I found on Petfinder.  I designed another video similar to the 2007 video in 2009, and again in 2011.  Amazing that I kept the numbers in notes and I found them today.  I’m probably the most disorganized person you’ll ever meet!  However, I went onto […]

BoBo Gives Back

Written by Laura Leigh Burke Sometime in 2011, my Facebook feed introduced me to the Dog Liberator with the story of Chance (Rhys).  I remember reading his story and sobbing at my computer desk.  I could not comprehend how anyone could do such a thing to any living creature but I was so happy to […]

Four Years in Rescue

The Dog Liberator has been rescuing now for four years May 18th. That’s the day Ozzie was dropped off at my home by a family who couldn’t keep him. Because I was dog-less at that time, (my Reckless had passed away) and he was awesome, I kept him! Ozzie was my first foster failure, and […]

The Art of Cross Posting

This has been one of the hardest articles to write ever!  Maybe it’s because I can’t clearly explain, but this is my third time at attempting to write about Cross posting. Wikipedia defines cross posting as:  Cross posting is the act of posting the same message to multiple information channels; forums, mailing lists, or newsgroups. This is distinct from […]

Let it Go – Stop Feeling Sorry For Your Dog

This article explains why it is unhealthy to pity or feel sorry for your dog. No matter what your dog has been through, pity will create behavioral issues. This article explains that most dog-owners, especially those who have adopted a rescued dog, don’t realize that feeling sorry for your dog does emotional harm. All Dogs Should […]

Remembering Harry Elliott

The Dog Liberator receives donations from individuals from time to time.  Many times, donations are received from people we do not know, people who have not adopted from us, people who may never adopt from us; people who just want to help.  Some donations are $5, some are $100.  What matters is people want to […]
