Hi there my name is Fido and I am writing to tell everyone about the life of a dog in a Southern High Kill Shelter.  I know if I take 3 days to write this it will not be finished so I will try to depict my situation the best that I can quickly.  (Although I am luckier than Bingo, he will be euthanized today as he was an owner surrender, I was a stray so they give me 3 days).    I was born to a wonderful mom.  She took great care of me.  One day her family decided that there were too many of us to feed so they starting giving us away.  I ended up .............

A letter from a Southern Sheltered Dog: (Names have been changed to protect the innocent. Sadly, the facts within, are true, correct and accurate)

Fostering Rocks!
A Big 
Thank You....
To the Volunteers and Rescuers in the Deep South who give countless hours, long nights and weekends and terrific personal sacrifices in order to prepare the unwanted, displaced, and unloved dogs for trips to their forever homes and the life they so rightfully deserve.   It is important for me to note they are the ones on the front lines who are pulling dogs from kill shelters, interstate medians, behind dumpsters, out of  ditches, in abandoned cars etc., etc.. Without their vision, determination, and “Bull Headed Stubbornness”, even more wonderful dogs would be killed. Rescue only works because of their efforts.

It is a extraordinary honor to me each time they trust me with the life of a dog that they have invested so much time and love. They are the true miracle workers in this battle and so often do not get the recognition they deserve.

Their drive, passion and generous hearts to do what is right and moral and selfless, inspire me to be  a better person  - every day!!!!!

Q: Why does the North

      import Southern     


A:#1: Southerners have excellent taste in dogs - they just don’t spay  and neuter or keep them on their property. Some northerners have figured this out and are acquiring first-rate dogs at bargain basement prices..

A: #2: Spay and neuter activism combined with breeder regulation in the North have generated restricted supply and thus high prices for adoptable dogs. The lack of spay/neuter facilities and breeder regulation and the prevalence of warm winters in the South have created excessive supply of adoptable  dogs and thus low prices. Enterprising souls on both sides are making this market work. In doing so they are not only improving the lives of Northern Families but also saving the lives of southern dogs. These are not any dogs mind you, These are High grade, Southern-mannered and styled dogs. Thus the name for this market: “Southern Comfort”.

The drawl is free.

Foster Homes


Can you foster a dog for 2 to 4 weeks??  Fostering is a way of helping a dog off Death Row, and onto its “Forever Family”.  Fostering is a very rewarding and gratifying experience that will create memories to cherish a lifetime, not-to-mention it will help a dog in need of your help. If you can allow a pet into your home for a short period and into your heart forever, please contact one of the Adoption Links at the bottom or contact me with any questions.
