Permanent Residents

Meet the permanent residents of the people who own the rescue. These animals have found their forever home with us due to breed, behavioral or medical issues.

They are our personal animals and are not available for adoption.


Shivaya was born around August 2019. She was turned into an animal shelter in Louisiana for euthanasia due to chronic illness, weighing only 37 lbs. The shelter treated her and she came to Maine. She used to live as an outdoor dog, and now enjoys sleeping in the bed with her canine and feline pack.

Shreya is a 45lb black lab mix who came to us from Puerto Rico where we found her living in a pack on the streets. We were caring for several street dogs while helping with a spay/neuter campaign there and noticed Shreya was very sick, so we caught her and boarded her at a vet clinic until she could be brought back to the mainland. Shreya suffered from an abscessed mammary tumor mange, parasites, heartworm disease and an ear hematoma. All those issues were treated but unfortunately the tumor was malignant and it is obvious that Shreya is too scared a dog (semi-feral in fact) to be adopted out into most homes, so she will remain here.

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.



Radha is a Chihuahua mix who was acquired from a high kill shelter with the intention of placement. Because she suffers from herniated discs and severe luxating patellas, she has joined our pack. She had bilateral knee surgery in winter 2018. She is on several herbal supplements and receives regular acupuncture and chiropractic.


Narissa is a poodle mix who was abandoned prior to hurricane Harvey. When we got her she was pregnant, heartworm positive, had been shot with a bb gun, has spinal, eye and skin problems. She gave birth to 2 stillborn and two live puppies. Narissa has had 2 different types of cancerous tumors removed.


Brahman is a pit bull who was rescued at 2 years old from a high kill shelter in NYC in 2014. At that time he had severe skin problems and food allergies. He also has some musculoskeletal issues. He does great on his raw diet, chiropractic and supplements.

Finnegan is a chihuahua who came to us after he was surrendered to a local shelter in 2018 at the age of 7 after being in 3 homes. He had severe dental disease resulting in bone exposure, a jaw fracture and luxating patellar. He had all but 6 teeth removed. He is doing great with his raw diet, supplements and chiropractic.


Naimah and Sameer

Naimah (female) and Sameer (male) are 2 double merle Australian Shepherd siblings who joined us in 2016 at 8 weeks old. They were rescued from a backyard breeder in Arkansas who purposefully bred two merle colored dogs despite knowing that 25% would be blind or visually impaired and/or deaf or hearing impaired. Naimah is visually and hearing impaired and Sameer is blind and deaf. Despite their handicaps, they are living a happy and full life.

Spruce is a female wolf hybrid who came to us with her soulmate Cochise after the sanctuary she was living in shut down. Sadly, she lost her best friend to lung cancer but was paired with Apache and Nashoba, who bring great comfort to her. Spruce is pure joy and loves to give kisses, play and go for car rides.

Apache and Nashoba

Apache is an Alaskan Noble Companion dog who came to us with Nashoba after his owner became too debilitated to care for him. He is a very friendly and outgoing guy who loves people and his friends, Spruce and Nashoba.

Odin was purchased by a family who decided they no longer wanted him at 10 months old and were going to euthanize him. He arrived with obvious signs of neglect and was terrified of everyone and everything but quickly warmed up to us and some of the other residents. His previous owners told us he would probably kill small dogs and cats but he is fine with ours. Odin has become best friends with Cheyenne and has brought renewed energy to Mangus.

Phoenix was born in 2018 and joined us at the age of 15 months when his owner was unable to care for him anymore due to his separation anxiety, high energy and because he couldn't be properly contained in the residence. Phoenix is a Husky/Tamaskan cross and is currently acting as a companion to Kai who is similar in age.

Kai was born in 2019 and came to us after she was seized from an individual in Connecticut. She suffered some significant neglect before landing with a caring animal control officer, his associates and a fish and game officer who were committed to finding a safe place for her to land. This shy but sweet girl has integrated well here and lives with Phoenix.
