Barney update: he will stay at BS overnight and go under tomorrow. They will biopsy the “abscess” to see if it’s cancerous or not and then make a plan. Tonight he will start antibiotics and they will get him she sort of nutrition.
He does indeed have the gingival hyperplasia that is specific to boxers. That’s causing all the gums to fall away from the mouth. 😢
More to come tomorrow. He has won over every single person who has met him hearts. Please keep him in your prayers, we already deeply love him and will do anything we can to save him. ... See MoreSee Less
Absolutely love this big boy! Vin Diesel is a 3 year old 90 pound boxer mix who is a big sweetheart! He is good with other dogs and he LOVES playing ball.. and no, not fetch. We're talking basketball, soccer, anything with a Vin sized ball. Total lover who has no idea how big he actually is. Loves everyone but would be better in a home without small kids simply due to the fact one of his sweet kisses could accidentally knock someone over! Please consider adopting, fostering, or sponsoring Vin Diesel! #VinDiesel #AdoptDontShop email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org ... See MoreSee Less
PLEASE SHARE: This beautiful dane mix puppy is about 8 months at Cowley County shelter and NEEDS A HERO! He is desperately struggling in the kennel and not handling the shelter environment. He is good with dogs and cats!!! Working on being potty trained but the shelter isn't a place for that. He is struggling. He has been given anxiety meds but due to his condition his life is in jeopardy. So we are tagging to make sure he is safe and BEGGING for a foster to help us save him. He needs someone with patience and who understands what it means to take in a puppy. He is a beautiful boy who barely has had a chance to live and deserves a home. If you are interested in fostering or adopting PLEASE email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org He so deserves a chance at a life worth living. #alllivesmatter #youCANbehishero ...

Please keep Marinedda and her family in your thoughts/prayers today as they say goodbye to their beloved forever foster Faith. Faith is a beautiful pitty mix that was taken in by her loving family under A&F's care as a special needs pup due to her seizures and she was given 8 and a half wonderful months of unconditional love. Her sweet disposition showed through her kindness to all dogs, cats, and kids. Faith truly is gentle soul and with broken heart full of love, her family will no longer let her suffer from declining health and give her peace. At 3:30 this afternoon Faith will say her temporary goodbye to her family and join all our beloved pups in heaven, just across the rainbow bridge. We thank her foster family for giving her so much love and wrapping her in that love until her very last breath. Our hearts and prayers are with you.
We love you Faith. No more seizures in heaven sweet one. Just love. ... See MoreSee Less

Happy National Senior Citizens Day! Although we love all animals regardless of age, we definitely have a soft spot for our more "seasoned" animals. We hope the seniors in your life are living it up and taking all the naps today.
This video gives you a short glimpse into our little red barn. It was made only a couple of months ago, and we have already shattered the number mentioned in regards to dogs saved!
Let's celebrate today by seeing the senior pets in your life. Show 'em in the comments below! <3 #pennylanepups #alwaysnfurever #adoptdontshop #adoptasenior #nationalseniorcitizendayNonprofit video for local animal sanctuary. Promoting what they do and who they are. ... See MoreSee Less

Angus is doing great! Thanks for saving him, Jen, and Thanks for cross-posting, Sara! I'm still unable to post or comment on the Alumni page from this ID. Facebook lessons/tips welcome if anyone has any...
And...as Always, Angus would love for Gump and Momma to get a home of their very own!!!
Barney needs everyones positive thoughts and prayers. We took him in yesterday with an emergency plea to get him off the streets and the help he needs although neighbors had been giving him scraps in the rural part of the county where there was no animal control or shelter and if we hadn't he wouldve been PTS. Barney is gentle loving and so appreciative of everything. His mouth is a trainwreck but he never complains, whines or cries. He's off to the vet this morning and we want to give Barney the chance to live life without pain, in a loving home and truly a second chance. Whenever there is hope we follow it and we promised him he'd have a new beginning so please say a prayer we can keep that promise. He deserves it. ... See MoreSee Less

Goodbyes are never easy, even when we know they are coming, they come too soon and we are never fully prepared. Ralphie was just a lost old man, taken in by a wonderful loving foster family who turned out to be his forever family. He choose his people. He loved his family and his family loved him. We don't know anything about his past before he found them but he was a special sweet soul who, like us, will be forever grateful to the people who opened up their hearts and their home to give him a place to rest his soul. We knew his health was declining and he didn't have much longer but today his family held him as he transitioned into his new life just across the rainbow bridge.
Run free in heaven sweet boy. No more pain there, until you're with your family again you will be forever missed and always loved. ... See MoreSee Less
It's amazing really, if you think about it, how much love one little red barn has produced in such a short time but along with that love comes a tremendous loss. August has not been kind to the hearts of our adopters and supporters. Today, one of our A&F pup's, Summit who was deeply loved by his mom Kalee, ended his journey on earth to begin his new adventure in heaven. I'm not sure what is worse with a beloved family member, a slow knowing goodbye or a sudden crossing. Either way, we know how much he was valued, how much joy he brought into Kalee's life and just how deeply he was loved. He was abandoned at a shelter for being deaf and older but that didn't stop Kalee from stepping forward. From the time he arrived in November her home was his home and his heart was her heart. He was a gentle sweet soul and will never be forgotten. Run free in heaven sweet Summit. Thank you for being a part of all of our journey. You were loved, you're still loved and you'll always be loved and that is all that matters. ... See MoreSee Less
