Notes: Gracen is an escape artist. She can still be timid and will need a patient family, but she will approach people and look for attention. She has learned to play with another dog who is helping her adjust and absolutely loves squeaker toys. She is highly food motivated, which really helps with training. Until Gracen is very comfortable in her home, she is a flight risk, so she must be on a leash, or tie line, even in a fenced yard. She is almost completely house-training, only using puppy pads in the house occasionally. Gracen’s adopter must have at least one dog, who will help her learn the ropes of being a house dog and give her confidence and companionship. She is learning to trust and live with people; she has made great strides. If you want to know more about adopting Gracen please e-mail us at the address below.

Houlagans' Rest is a 501c3 rescue of last resort located in Richmond VA. The images of stranded, desperate animals left in the wake of Hurricane Katrina catalyzed my sister and me to become involved in animal rescue. Debbie answered an email pleading for drivers to take veterinary supplies to the Gulf and to return with homeless pets. Standing in the parking lot of the Pearl River SPCA, Debbie walked up with a little bag of bones disguised as a puppy so thin that his skin tented from his spine to his hip bones, he was one of the nine Catahoulah Leopard Dog mixes not chosen by other transporters. With supplies and man hours in short supply, the rule of triage dictated that the malnourished, ill litter would be euthanized. Determined shelter workers kept them alive and hoped for one last transport. We were it. That moment in the Pearl River parking lot launched our criteria for dogs coming into our care: homeless, unwanted by other rescues, and slated to die within hours. We became a Rescue of Last Resort.
If you have any questions regarding adoptable dogs, fostering, or volunteering, please message us. We do out of state adoptions as well.
