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.

From the bottom of our heart

From the bottom of our heart

We would like to take a moment to say thank you to all those who have been so faithful in supporting us these past few months. Without you we would not be here.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs you know, early in the fall Gisele had a heart attack. As a result, it was also discovered that she has a progressive arterial disorder and it is still being determined how disabled the heart attack and disorder has left her. Another surgery is still a possibility, but is being delayed as testing continues and as we wait on pending determinations.

Through all this difficulty and uncertainty, we have been overwhelmed by the support that the rescue, and Gisele have received. Several of our adopters and supporters have sent generous donations to help us continue to pay the rescue’s necessary bills.   We were also blown away this week when we received a call from our vet, letting us know that one of our adopters (who has supported us in many ways over the years including volunteering in many ways) had made a huge donation and paid off $500 dollars of our veterinary care bill. Others have supported Gisele and her family directly and one was recently kind enough to send her daughter a gift card for clothes.

Maura and Tuesday!

Your support has kept TDL going as we face difficult times. We send a special thank you to our foster Maura, who fostered several of our recent pups and who is now moving. Thank you for welcoming our babies into your home and taking such great care of them.

If you are interested in fostering for us, we are always looking for more fosters. Additionally, a special thank you to all of those who have opened their home to a TDL pup, whether for foster or as a forever home. Gisele has always fostered for us, but since her heart attack she is on light duty and can’t handle medium to larger dogs, which ties our hands a bit on who we can rescue. If you are interested in learning more about fostering, feel free to email us. we welcome your support.

We are currently floating through unknown waters. There are lots of questions and decisions pending, and to some extent it feels like our future is not in our own hands, but one thing remains firm: we want to rescue dogs, even if it is slowly, one by one.  Thank you to all who continue to make it possible. “Thank you” hardly seems enough to express the gratitude we feel.


5/19/15 Update: A special thank you goes out to Lynne Deal who just paid off our current vetting balance at Newman! Lynne has been a constant supporter and we are so thankful and blessed to have her as part of the TDL Family!
