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.

Spotlight on Sarah White

Spotlight on Sarah White
on Transport!

Sarah was born in Richmond Virginia and went to college in Newport News Virginia (Christopher Newport University). She has one sister who was married last May.  Sarah is in Virginia right now, and getting married this May 21st.  She writes, “my parents continue to be my greatest support, and they also follow The Dog Liberator as does our family dog, Henry (a doxie packed with personality).”

Sarah’s first dog Skippy, was an English cocker spaniel.  She still misses him.  He had the most gentle temperament.  “We were best friends since I was about 3 and he lived to the ripe old age of about 16, was blind and deaf, and still could find you in the house and wiggle when you came home.  Never let a dog’s  disability make you think they are ever any “less.” Skippy was my best friend and partner in crime, and when little Henry joined him, he tolerated the overactive pup’s “invasion” of a one dog home (of 14 years) with nothing but love and happiness.”

Sarah came to Florida with her Fiancé for graduate school. He is at Barry Law and I am in Barry University’s master’s program in Marriage and Family Counseling.  She actually found Dog liberator because she was terrified to move from Virginia.  She had never lived more than 2 hours from home.  She was comforted with the possibility of having her own dog at some point.  As the time to move came closer, she searched Petfinder and kept finding the most adorable dogs.  She soon noticed that every single one of them was from the same rescue, “The Dog Liberator.”

Home Sweet Home

She went to the Facebook page and began following the different dogs. The move to Florida was smooth but she quickly discovered how tight finances could be. After doing the math, she decided it wouldn’t be fair to bring a dog into the home. “We couldn’t promise to always have enough, and so I pouted and continued to follow TDL, watching beautiful dogs come in, and go home.”

I followed and followed until one morning I logged on, and there was a request for “transport” from Deltona to Clearwater. I’d never gone more than 10 miles from our apartment but I contacted Gisele and told her I was available.

The next day (Dec 5th) I picked up Johnny Ray and Sugar Ray, two big sweet lovin boys who traveled like a charm. I was hooked. Nine transports and 22 dogs later, I love being a transporter. I may not be able to bring a dog into MY home right now, but that doesn’t mean I can’t bring them home.”

Sarah's Bridal Shower

Sarah has since created her own Blog, and shares her experiences with every TDL dog she meets.  We all want to congratulate Sarah on her upcoming wedding day, and we can’t wait for her to share more photos, and come home!
