The Dog Liberator™

The Dog Liberator rescues abandoned dogs throughout the Southeast. Based in Central Florida, this non-profit organization fosters all of their dogs in a home environment. Founded in 2009, all dogs are fully vetted, spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The Dog Liberator focuses in rescuing the herding breed, which consists of Border Collies, Shepherds, Sheepdogs, Aussies, Collies, and Deaf/Blind Dogs.

Cadence, the Blue Merle Border Collie ~ Adopted

Cadence, the Blue Merle Border Collie ~ Adopted

Cadence is a lovely 2-year-old blue merle Border Collie girl brought to us by Nadia Caron-Davis, a volunteer for Friends of Citrus County Animal Services (FOCCAS).

Like so many other wonderful dogs that find their way to TDL, Cadence was a stray running the streets when she was picked up by Animal Services. That explains her extremely thin body condition and heartworm positive status. Cadence needs to put about 5-6 lbs. on her thin 26-lb. frame. That’s no problem — we’ll take care of that with lots of good food and TLC. We’ll also start Cadence on slow kill heartworm treatment right away with a course of Doxycycline and Prednisone followed by monthly Heartgard. (Cadence’s adopter will receive a year’s supply of Heartgard to continue her treatment.)  

Cadence has only been with me for 24 hours, but she has already wormed her way into my heart with her good manners and affectionate personality. I can’t wait to learn more about this loving girl! Stay tuned for updates! ~ Amy

Cadence is being fostered at my home in the Ocala area. You can view her photo album on Facebook.  If you are interested in adopting her, please review “How to Adopt From Us” and email your information to me at

Oct. 8th, 2011: ADOPTED! Cadence just left with the wonderful Angela Saunders and Kristin Mathre of St. Petersburg. I think Angela and Kristin are excited to have a new jogging/roller blading partner … and I know Cadence is excited to have not one but two people to shower her with love and attention! St. Petersburg, welcome your newest Dog Liberator dog! ~ Amy
