If you have a life insurance policy that is no longer required, transferring the policy to the LIFE House for Animals may provide benefits to both LIFE House for Animals and the donor.

When Nancy and her pups, William Robert and Hazel Grace, arrived at LIFE House, you were just moved to tears when you looked upon a moma dog and her 2 emaciated nursing puppies, all 3 for which the only color you could give them was pink. The best guess on breed was beagle or jack russell mix. Nancy was so fearful that she would not even make eye contact with you and just wanted to flee from everyone. Nancy had 3 puppies when they were trapped as strays in rural surroundings fending for themselves, barely surviving. Unfortunately, 1 of the puppies died upon arrival at the veterinary clinic. Nancy and the remaining puppies were very malnourished and heavily infested with internal and external parasites.
We immediately began following veterinary advice for the removal of parasites, introduced them to good nutrition, began weaning the puppies, and administering large doses of tender loving care. The puppies immediately took to all the attention and began to thrive. Nancy began to physically improve but was much slower to come around emotionally. We kept her with the puppies and let her see how tenderly we cared for them. She slowly began to allow us to pet her and eventually let us slip on a harness to take her out to the fenced yard.
It was a beautiful sight when they all started getting in their normal hair coats and we could see how pretty they were supposed to be! We could actually see that they were black, brown, and white.
As everyone continued to progress, the spay and neuter surgeries were completed and they were posted as available for adoption. A wonderful family adopted William Robert and Hazel Grace together.
It took about 5 months for Nancy to continue to come out of her shell and trust people again. Her physical health has fully recovered and she enjoys playing with other dogs. She loves to play with toys, especially the grunting pig! She has been adopted into a loving home with other dog companions and has a doggie door into a fenced yard so she can come and go safely. She is certain that she is on guard duty 24/7!
