Briley is a very sweet trusting little 8 month old Catahoula pup. He was in a shelter in Indiana with a broken leg, we found a wonderful foster home for him with Karen and George. They fell in love with Briley after just a couple of days and offered to adopt him. This is an amazing story of true love a devotion to an animal that has crossed your path and choose you as his owner. I believe these soul were meant to met and be together. We can not thank Karen and George enough for all they have done and will continue to do for Briley. Briley will need to under surgery for his leg in a couple months and this is very major surgery costing around $3000. We as a Rescue have said we would pay for Briley's surgery and Karen and George have refused and told us to please spend the money saving other dogs. This is truely above and beyond there call, but Thank you so much. You truly are a blessing for Briley and the Rescue.

Blue is Cooper's brother, these two handsome Catahoula grow up in a shelter. They lived their from 3 months till 10 months and the shelter could not find them a home, then we rescued them.

As you can see he is very happy and extremely handsome.

But they were will to pay for it all even if we had on luck with our fund raiser. Thank you Jennifer, you an a blessing to Maya and Catahoula rescue.

Choleena this is in memory of you.  Because you have brought me so much joy I feel like I need to give back.  So I have rescued over 16 Catahoulas in memory of you.  16 for the years of Joy you had given me.  I will always love you and you will be forever in my heart.  May your wings take you where ever you may choose to go. UPDATE: I have decided to continue with Catahoula rescue the pictures above are just some the Catahoula we have adopted. You can find our Catahoula's for adoption on Catahoularescue.com. The Illinois Division of Catahoula rescue has adopted out over 200 Catahoula and Catahoula mixes in the last 2 1/2 years. Thank you for everyone who had supported Rescues by Adopting, Volunteering or Donating to them.

It is time to turn over a new page in my book of life.  I will no longer be doing Catahoula Rescue, I will instead be devoting my time and energy to my family who I LOVE dearly.
