We were recently notified that our 2014 alumnus Piper Cub passed away a few years ago. Piper Cub came to rescue at 10 years old. His mom Donna happened to co-own his brother Simon so when she was asked to foster Piper Cub, she adopted him immediately. He was skinny when he came to rescue but was very handsome and sweet and he lived his remaining few years loved and cherished by his mom. Thank you Donna for helping Piper Cub along his journey.
“We’re missing you a little more each time we hear your name. We’ve cried so many tears yet our heart’s broken just the same. We miss our times together, things in common we could share, but nothing fills the emptiness now you’re no longer there. We’ve so many precious memories to last our whole life through. Each one of them reminders of how much we’re missing you.” Unknown

2017 Alumni Myles took his last mule ride. Myles holds a very special place in the hearts of our Florida volunteer team. He came into rescue as a stray with injuries and was lovingly cared for by Dr. Richard Funk and Marjie who fell in love with Myles and adopted him. Myles had a wild streak in him – causing havoc when he decided to wander away from his foster home for a few days. He loved the ladies too – and well, everything and everybody. He is buried in front of his beloved barn. From Richard, “We are so sad and heartbroken. I can’t believe in two years how much of my heart he stole. While saying goodbye was painful it was the only choice. It's been a long time since we loved a dog as much as we did Myles. But we would do it all over, just for the chance to give him the happy family life he deserved." Run free sweet Myles…no more pain or fences. We’ll all meet you at the Rainbow Bridge.
