Things tend to move quite fast on Facebook, so I thought it would be helpful to include a list of things you may have missed this week! The underlined text below are links to the story; some will open in a new browser window.

Sadly, we learned Tuesday that Rusty passed away. An older little fella, Rusty first captured our hearts with his story of rescue need at TLAC and networkers got to work. A Dallas based rescue saved him, and transporters got him to Dallas. And we celebrated that one more made it! He died a few days later of a heart attack, in the arms of his foster mom.

Please let me know what you think about snapshot updates like this!


  1. I love this idea! I get very wrapped up in stories and then often don’t know what happened. Like I am still wondering whatever happened with Breeze. And I can’t remember if this is the site that had the marine who wanted to give up his dog because he was being deployed and many of us tried to persuade him to at least take the listing off of craigslist. I need updates and resolutions! And hopefully happy endings!
