Chaining her dog to a tree

Clay Romero, the man charged in the dragging death on December 30, 2009 of a German Shepherd named Buddy behind his truck for three miles the maximum penalty of three years in federal prison, $100,000 fine and one year probation for this horrific crime. Do not let this crime go unpunished for the horrible death of an innocent dog. Given Mr. Romero's past criminal record, we feel he is a menace to society and this dragging death is only the beginning of what could lead to future unimaginable and tragic consequences.

Top Pet Names of 2009

It's raining namesFan fever for the enormously popular "Twilight" franchise has spread its way to the pet world: Bella, the name of the series’ heroine, has usurped Max as the most popular dog name of 2009. Though Max held the top spot for six years in a row, this year Bella beat out Max by more than 400 dogs. But fans of the name need not worry – Max is the top 2009 name in the kitty kingdom.
Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI), the nation's largest and oldest provider of pet health insurance, scoured its database of more than 475,000 insured pets to find the most popular dog and cat names of 2009. (Animals not insured by VPI were not included in the survey.)
But for those who like to think outside the (litter) box, VPI also came up with a list of unusual pet names, like Kanye East and Velvet Elvis. The company's employees selected 50 unusual dog names and 50 unusual cat names, and then voted for the top 10 in each category. See which names were up to snuff

Denver Pet Adoption, Please Rescue Me

Our recent victim in the Abusive world we live in is the sweetest dog you could ever meet! This 1 year old dog was a friend's neighbor dog that had been playing with since the owners kept it in their backyard and chained to a tree 24-7!!

The owners fled town and left this poor dog to fend for itself (don't get me started about these criminals), after some work she took it to the Boulder Humane Society to become adopted since she was not able to.

If ineterested or know someone, pass this along and contact the Boulder Humance Society, he will love you to death and would love a new start in life!

Our Annual Maxfund Pet Drive!

Thanks to all that helped make this year another exciting time to help those less fortunate Pet's in shelters during the Holidays. We donated close to $300 worth of items to the shelter and we can't wait to hear back about how much they are enjoying these gifts. Thanks again to everyone that participated!

History of Maxfund
At this time another hospital that took emergencies had taken in a dog that was hit by car, this dog had multiple injuries. One of Dr. Suro’s clients heard of this dog and asked if he would take it. The Good Samaritan had paid for the immediate medical care. But no owner could be found, and after 10 days the dog faced euthanasia. He was now stable medically, but needed expensive orthopedic surgery for his fractures, and no one was willing to pay for it. The Suro’s agreed to see what they could do for him.

Why the name MaxFund?
When we brought the dog into the hospital they found a good-natured, headstrong big male dog, probably a cross between a German Shepherd and a German Shorthair. Pointer. The staff named him Max. He was facing several surgeries and a long rehabilitation. The Suro’s decided to get the hospital cliental and other pet lovers involved with helping with some of Max’s expenses. From donated services from outside doctors, a fishbowl on the counter with the name “Max”, and a yard sale they actually ended up with more money than the Suro’s had expected. Dr. Suro said,” There are a lot of nice animals that don’t have a job.” They decided to apply it to the next case and the next—
