Lynus has arrived!



Lynus has arrived! We first saw Lynus, a very old Chow mix, on a Facebook page a few weeks ago. He was at animal control just south of L.A.  We took a chance and asked about rescuing him ... then with the help of the Facebook community, along with Rita Benavidez, Heidi Christina Hausmann with Paws for Life GSD Rescue and Colen with Paws Without Borders, we were able to get Lynus rescued and transported to us!  Quite the journey for this sweet old man ... the transport traveled from L.A. up to Washington & Oregon, across to Wyoming, Colorado, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Jersey before ending up in our driveway this afternoon! Poor Lynus was a little shaken up and stressed from his nearly 5 day journey but he has already eaten and is exploring the house a bit! After a slow and gentle first greeting and petting, I am giving him some space to settle in. Looking at him, it is clear he has a long road ahead, health-wise. He has been very neglected for some time.  He has severe skin infections, growths on his hind legs that need to be removed, an injury to his paw, and needs a dental cleaning with extractions. We are relieved that he is finally here and very grateful to have the chance to care for him and give him the medical attention he needs! He will be adored here with us. Thank you again to everybody involved in his rescue and transport!! Will keep you updated of course ...





New commitment for a new year!

We have revised our mission statement to reflect our decision to focus solely on senior, special needs, and medically needy dogs!

Mission statement:  Bliss is a licensed, non-profit 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming senior, special needs, and medically needy dogs from local animal control facilities.
