Caspie came to us very sick and neglected, but through it all, she still loved people!
Caspie had mange, which left her with no hair. No hair left her vulnerable to sunburn, which left her with open wounds on her back.
Caspie also had a double ear infection, yeast infection in her feet and pneumonia.
With time and a lot of love and care, Caspie began to heal. Her hair began growing back, and she began putting some much needed weight on. In the next picture you can see Caspie letting the people who did this to her know exactly how she felt about them!
When Caspie was well enough, we took her to a playdate with other Boxers. As you will see on the next few pages, Caspie had a blast playing with the others. She fit right in, and had very few issues. She was down, but with love and attention, Caspie bounced right back!
This is the first time we saw Caspie in the Boxer stance. The other boxer’s owner thought it was so cute and just proof that Caspie was by far an exceptional girl!
No, the other Boxer wasn’t afraid of Caspie. We think he was merely imparting her with Boxer wisdom and the secrets of being Boxer.

So there you have the story of Caspie. Caspie is proof that time and love can heal anything. Caspie found her forever home about 3 months after she came to us. To see her now, you would never know the horrible life she lead prior to her rescue.
Bowdin came into NWAC with a broken leg.
He was found along the side of the road in a ditch. He’d been hit by a car and left to die.
NW Animal Companions took Bowdin into rescue. Then we had the amazing surgeon Dr. Thomas at Tanasbourne ER pin his broken leg.
After a couple of months in a wonderful volunteer foster home, Bowdin was adopted!
Toby was purchased as a cute, little, fluffy puppy in Pendleton, Oregon. Winter came and his owners put a sweater on him and tossed Toby out in the yard to live. As the months went by, his fur grew over and around the sweater. Once taken into rescue, NWAC had Toby rushed to a vet in Eastern Oregon by a partnering rescue.
Toby’s fur was so badly matted and overgrown, he had to be sedated to have the sweater surgically removed from his body. He had a terrible infection and his matted fur was tearing his skin. Through all of this, Toby stayed a loving, sweet pup. Through all of this, he still loves humans. Toby has been adopted, to a lovely couple, he will NEVER want for anything ever again…. And he lives INDOORS.
At 5 weeks old, Jonah had been stepped on and had his growth plate broken. He came into Northwest Animal Companions Rescue and we promptly sent him to a specialist.
His leg had stopped growing. The surgeon placed actuators on his leg.
His foster parents had to turn the dials daily to produce bone growth.
Amazing stuff! Jonah was such a trooper through all of this, that his foster family fell in love and adopted him. NWAC saved his leg, now he hikes mountains with his family.
