Journey Animal Rescue's
Hospice and Lifetime Fosters

Sometimes a dog comes into our rescue's care with pre-existing health or behavioral needs.
Many simple health and behavioral issues can be resolved and a dog will become adoptable.

But sometimes their needs are long-term, severe, permanent and potentially costly, or they need a home with a specific knowledge or skill.
Finding forever homes for these dogs is extremely difficult- especially with so many younger, healthy dogs to compete with.

For those special reasons a dog may become a Lifetime Foster Dog or Lifetime Hospice Dog.
These dogs will remain in the care of our rescue with all future bills paid.

For some of these dogs, the bills will reach well into the thousands for care they so desperately need.
Please help us to continue to offer this unique and truly needed care.

Raj

Raj

Every now and then that special dog joins our long-term care due to age, temperament or medical condition. It’s official: Raj will be a permanent resident. Raj came into our life a few months after we lost one of our permanent dogs, another pit bull mix named Austin. Austin was rescued from Hurricane Katrina in 2005 along with 125 other dogs I brought back. He and 4 other pit bulls became permanent residents due to medical issues which made them unadoptable at that time. Austin loved us, loved his pit bull companion Jelly (another Katrina dog) and adored the people he learned to trust. At the young age of 10 and 1/2 years we lost our beloved boy to pancreatic cancer, devastating us and Jelly, his soulmate. We did our best to console Jelly, rotating her with our other female but it was rough on everyone. Then Raj joined us as a foster dog. Initially we were told he was great with dogs, cats, kids and all people, so we agreed to take him. We noticed some concerning behavior when we first picked him up, but shrugged it off to stress and having been shuffled through 2 shelters and another foster home prior to arriving here. We then noticed that reaching above his head or picking up anything like a stick, broom or tennis ball would result in a terrified dog. When we went to public events, it became obvious that his past mistreatment at the hands of men would not allow him to be placed without a lot of work. We are lucky to have a wonderful trainer, Marianne Finney, who loves and believes in him and to have had the gift of Austin in learning how to deal with a dog with such issues. Raj is great with our animals and he and Jelly adore each other. Raj is here to stay.
We got the Message, Austin: you sent him to us.
Jelly says thank you, Austin, we all miss you but feel you are here once again.

Jelly

Jelly

Jelly Is a 11 year old pitbull who was rescued from hurricane Katrina. She was found in a shed with multiple other pitbulls who were locked in chicken cages above the ground and were likely used as breeder dogs for a fighting ring. Jelly is a very loving and sweet dog whom we were not able to adopt through no fault of her own. She loves her best friend Austin, and the two now have permanent sanctuary here with the rescue. Her favorite things are bully sticks, belly rubs and to maul you with kisses.

Won't you consider sponsoring Jelly??

Takota

Takota

Takota

Takota is a Native American Indian dog (malamute, husky, Tamaskan cross. He was surrendered to another "rescue" at 6 months of age and relegated to living outside where he was fed only twice a week and as a result of his omega personality was constantly beat up by other animals at feeding time (having his head literally almost taken off, his tail broken and damage to his hind end).

He suffered some mistreatment by men at some point in his life, and is absolutely petrified of men.

Due to his significant orthopedic problems and fear issues, he is a permanent resident here.

He recently required surgery on one of his knees, and will likely need his other one operated on in the future, He also suffers from hip dysplasia.

Despite this, he is very content living with his dog and cat and other friends, and enjoys sleeping inside on a comfortable dog bed.

He is on multiple supplements for his orthopedic issues and receives regular chiropractic, massage and acupuncture.
