These are the foster dogs the crossed over the rainbow bridge while in our care, or after being adopted.
Pulled from the Redwood City Animal Shelter in August, 2013. She passed away due to complications from Cushing's Disease in January, 2014
Pulled from the Oakland Shelter in March, 2014. Passed away due to injuries from an altercation with a larger dog in January, 2017.
Pulled from the Hayward Shelter in May, 2016. He passed away from congestive heart failure in October, 2017.
Winston & Baxter
We were devastated to learn that these precious little guys who were adopted in August 2017, were killed by two large, loose dogs on Thanksgiving while the family's son was walking Winston & Baxter. There were in foster care for 6 months before being adopted. The foster family is as heartbroken as the adoptive family.
We helped Cinnamon get spayed and microchipped, but the law wouldn't allow us to find her a new home. We had to return her to the lowlife, scum-of-the-earth people that didn't have enough brain cells to figure out how to keep her safe. She was one of the sweetest dogs, and didn't deserve to be hit by a car while running loose through the streets of Castro Valley. By posting her here, we hope to honor her memory.
Gizmo ("Gizzy") wasn't a Nobody's Perfekt Dog rescue, but he played an important role in the work we do. He belonged to our primary foster home and over the last 3-4 years of his life he welcomed and mentored 80-90 foster dogs, helping them adjust to life in their new foster home. Gizmo was the most easy-going, sweet, gentle, playful, loving dog and provided a good role model for the other dogs. He got along with dogs, cats, chinchillas, people, kids, etc. He crossed the rainbow bridge way too soon. He was a healthy 9 year old, who was stricken (rather suddenly) with a massive stroke or undetected brain tumor on March 24, 2018. He is dearly missed by us all.
Dorie (a.k.a. Gloria)
Gloria was with us for 9 months before finally being adopted to the Honeycutt family on 4-13-2018. Gloria / Dorie died very suddenly and unexpectedly. She had an encounter with a backyard skunk a day earlier. There is speculation that the toxicity of the skunk spray somehow led to her death. She is dearly missed by the family that adopted her, her foster family and all of the shelter and rescue volunteers that interacted with her.
Pulled from the Hayward Shelter in September 2017. Was placed in hospice care due to mammary cancer. Crossed over the rainbow bridge on December 13, 2018 due to multiple health issues.
Baby was surrendered to the Hayward Shelter because the family was unable to provide the necessary veterinary care that she needed. At 13 years old, her mouth was practically disintegrated for severe dental disease. A year later (December 2018), she succumbed to a large mass in her abdomen. She was blessed to have loving and caring foster mom for the remainder of her life.
