First post by email Assignment 4

Received some sweet pictures of Lucy from her new home. Lucy was deemed dog aggressive and was about to be put down in our shelter. She was a beautiful yellow lab who loved to bark. I took a chance and pulled her out of the shelter. She has been with us for about 6 months. She made it to her new home a couple of weeks ago. She is doing fantastic and they are in love with her! She is NOT dog aggressive at all. She loves to ride in the car and knows basic commands. SO glad we took a chance on this beautiful girl!

Dom & Sadie

Dom & Sadie were part of 11 puppies that we took in from Hale County, AL.  The irresponsible owner had the mother dog chained in her yard and was allowing her to have litter after litter of puppies.  If this in not horrible enough, then she refused to feed the puppies after they stopped nursing.  A caring neighbor went and got all the puppies and asked us for help with them.  Look at them now in their new home!  Live it up DOM & SADIE!!!!! YOU DESERVE IT!!!!!!

Pups waiting on forever homes or foster homes!

We have many pups waiting for their forever homes.  As soon as one goes to their new home off we go to the shelter to save another one.  These sweet guys are still in need of a permanent home or a foster home.  What is a foster home?  It is simply a home where you agree to let the dog live just like he or she were your dog while we look for them a permanent home.  The more foster homes we have the more lives we can save.  Can you help us save more?

Karl is a little chocolate lab puppy who, along with his brothers and sisters, needs a home.  He is 8 weeks old and has the most beautiful eyes.  His mom was barely over being a puppy herself when she found herself pregnant.  Karl is small at only 8 lbs.  Can you offer him a warm bed to call his own?


Who we are and what we do…….

No Greater Love Rescue was officially born in October of 2013.  We have remained a small group doing big things in Tuscaloosa County.  We pull dogs and puppies from high kill shelters all over the southeast and place them into loving forever homes.  Many of these dogs were pulled on their last day to live.  We feel that all lives have a purpose.  We just have to help them on their journey.  Karl

The Mighty Chief

Many years ago I received a call from Betty Freeman of the West Alabama Humane Society.  They had pulled a starved yellow lab from the local high kill shelter who was terrified of people.  I had been fostering one dog at a time for over a year for them and Betty told me I was Chief’s only chance.  So off I went and brought home this beautiful terrified yellow lab who was so skinny it was heartbreaking.  I let him go in my fenced in back yard and was unable to touch him for a few weeks.  He would watch me with my dogs but had been so horribly abused he was afraid to come near people.    Six months after I took Chief in we walked into Christ Episcopal for the blessing of the animals.  Everyone with the Humane Society was shocked at the transformation.  Chief sat and let the priest bless him. For years I had been saying “someone has to do something about all the animals dying in shelters in the south”.  Chief showed me that I was someone and that I could do something.  Chief will be 8 years old this year.  He still lives with me.  I promised him that no one would ever hit him in anger again as long as I had a breath left in my body.   Chief has taught me forgiveness, unconditional love, and patience.   He allowed me to see that 1 person can make a difference if you put your heart into it.  I’m proud to say that hundreds of dogs have been pulled from high kill shelters and are now in homes because Chief showed me that I can make a difference.  I love this big dog sprawled across my floor more than words can express.  I get up in the wee hours of the morning to work in the kennels because there are so many Chiefs in our shelters and so few rescuers to save them.  Thank you Chief for saving so many lives!  Please don’t leave me anytime soon!


In a perfect world EVERY dog has a home!
