Miss “Freckles” is a very sweet senior foster beagle in British Columbia that needs your help. Freckles is in need of surgery to have several lumps removed, that if left, could prove to be a risk to her life. We all love Freckles very much and she is in good physical condition to undergo the surgery. Once recovered she should have many great years ahead of her.
This surgery will cost close to $1,400., funds that we do not have right now. So we are seeking your help to make this happen.
Donations can be made by the following methods:
- Interac money transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org
- by phone through our office 709-738-7297
- directly on our account at Sunshine Hills Vet Clinic, Delta BC 604-590-5665

A big THANK YOU to the following people who have donated towards Freckles vet fund:
S. Grant-Yetman, H. Snowdon, V. Holmes, L. Jung, S. Armstrong, C. Moynes, L. Parsons, H. Bowering, A. Fitzpatrick.
Special thanks to two sweet girls of British Columbia “Jessi & Nicole” who along with their donation sent us a photo of them baking dog treats while wearing beagle t-shirts (the photo is displayed at the Beagle Paws Shelter).
Spencer Fahie 2007-2012
Spencer joined our family as a young puppy and just stole our hearts. He was such a good boy and never tore anything up other than the three pairs of shoes and one pair of boots that he was trying to train me into putting in the closet that we got him a little brother we named Oscar. It took him about three hours to calm down as he was in awe that this friend came to stay for good! But one sat morning in march it all went downhill and very quickly, our boy that never had any health issues lost the use of his backend this was on St. Patrick’s Day, and on the Mon morning following we knew we had to make the hardest call of all, but we never left his side through the entire process when he just closed his eyes and went peacefully to sleep. We took him to my husband’s childhood home and he has a spot where he can still keep a watch over the house and family . We were just down there this Sun past and I was able to visit him. I miss him but I’m grateful for the 4 years we had with him.
Dear Biggie Smalls, I pray that although we never met you that in your heart you knew that we were trying to save you. Sadly your life ended too soon. May you forever be remembered by the people that cared for one special little beagle.
RESCUE AT RAINBOW BRIDGE
Unlike most of the sun filled days at the Rainbow Bridge, this particular day dawned cold and gray, damp as a swamp and as dismal as any day could be imagined. All of the recent arrivals had no idea what to think as they had never ever experienced a day like this before. But the animals who been waiting for their beloved people, knew exactly what was going on and started to gather at the pathway leading to The Bridge to watch.
The first animal thought about this for a minute and then asked, “So what will happen now?” As he was about to receive his answer, suddenly, the clouds parted swiftly, and the gloom lifted with a mighty wind. Approaching The Bridge could be seen a single person and among the older animals, the whole group was suddenly bathed in a golden light and they were all once again, young and healthy, just as they were in the prime of their life.
“Watch, and see,” said the second animal. A second group of animals from those also waiting came to the pathway and bowed their heads ever so low as the person neared closer. As each bowed head, the person offered a pat on their head or scratch behind the ears.
One by one, the newly restored animals fell into line and followed him towards The Bridge. And then, one by one, they all crossed The Bridge together.
“What just happened?” asked the first animal.
“That was a rescuer. The animals you saw bowing to the rescuer in respect were those who found new homes because of all their work. They will all cross over to The Bridge, when their new families arrive. Those you saw restored were those who never found homes. When a rescuer arrives they are allowed to perform one, final act of rescue. They are allowed to escort all those poor animals that they could not place on earth across The Rainbow Bridge.
“I think I like rescuers,” said the first animal, “So does GOD, “was the reply from the second animal, “so does God.”
