Meet furry friends, Penny, who came to Foxfire Farm in 2017, and Sara, a resident since 2019. Our good friend, Rose Cochran, has opened her farm to the shelter dogs of Webster County, WV, where they have only 5 days to make it out of the pound before being euthanized. Her farm is meant to be a very temporary, stop-gap solution until the dogs can find rescue.
Both Penny and Sara are the unfortunate victims of neglect and terrible abuse, the results of which have left both of them unsafe for adoption due to aggression issues. These dear girls, through no fault of their own, have suffered at the hands of humans, scarring them for life. But they deserve a chance at a good life on the farm (they both LOVE Rose and a handful of the other caretakers, and crave their attention).
Right now, Penny and Sara live in 16 x 16 adjoining pens, with dog houses for shelter. But since they will likely spend the rest of their lives at the farm, we wanted to give them something that's a close to a "real" home as we can get. Tails of Hope has committed to the $5,000 it will take to build this structure, which will be one building, divided down the middle, so that Penny and Sara each have their own space. They will be able to access their outdoor run via a doggie door, lay on the covered porch in inclement weather, and enjoy a soft, warm, cozy space inside their heated and air-conditioned doggie "condo".
Can you help us reach our goal for Penny and Sara? We believe in helping those who need it the most, and these two girls deserve to leave their horrific pasts behind and have a good life. If we can't get them into forever homes, we feel this is the next best thing.
