After Meiko's owner in McArthur passed away, this lucky girl was adopted by SNIPPP founders, Suzanne and Phil Kane. Described by Suzanne as an "over 100lb, 8 year old untrained puppy" she could be a bit of a handful, and loved to voice her opinion about things! But, lovable and loyal, Meiko was part of the family - fitting in with a Basset Hound or 3 or 4 or 5! Meiko passed away on June 2nd leaving the house a bit too quiet. She left her paw prints on the Kane's hearts!

Cooper met his forever family including his best bud, Moose, in March 2009. There he lived a long, happy life being loved and cherished as family. Cooper slipped away to play with Moose in heaven on Sunday, May 31, 2020 while sleeping snuggled against his mom Janet. He will forever be missed and loved.

*Benny* came to SNIPPP in early 2009. His owner didn't want him any more & he had not been cared for properly. He went to live with wonderful foster parents Monika & Erland at Old Station. After 6 months of going every Saturday to Petco in Redding, he found his forever home with Margie Baugh. They bonded immediately. He snored the first night he moved in & scored high marks at obedience school. He had a huge heart. He loved road trips, water, walking with Margie, playing with children & going anywhere in the car. He is greatly missed.*

Foxy was the first heartworm positive rescue dog SNIPPP took in. This stoic little gal was a real trooper during her long treatment, and when she was finally declared heartworm-free, she went home to her doting new "mom". She lived happily with a family of cats 'til the end of hers days. On the other side of the Rainbow Bridge now, she's probably sitting sedately, surveying the antics of all the other dogs and cats who've gone before her. We wish ALL animals could experience the love Foxy enjoyed!

Bear was one of the older dogs among the group known as "The Chain Gang"--18 Australian Cattle Dog-Shepherd blends who were all living outdoors, chained to trees, when SNIPPP volunteers first encountered them. Early on, Bear was diagnosed with an enlarged heart, declining vision and hearing, and had some very rotten teeth removed. He really wasn't expected to live for very long. Despite all that, he seemed to thrive, and had such a sweet personality, so everyone was thrilled when a lovely family from Yuba City expressed interest in adopting Bear. It turned out that Bear had finally found his true home. For nearly 3 more years, he was sustained by the love of the Chow Family, and was a contented companion to them in return. "He was beautiful inside and out", as his human "mom" said. We're all so glad we got to know him, and are happy to think of Bear running carefree, through the fields on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
