12 Year Old Maggie's Give to the Max Story

This dear girl lost her home and family when they moved to assisted living. Maggie is in long-term care with a wonderful foster couple with lots of time and love for a special Sheltie because she has been diagnosed with kidney disease with protein-losing nephropathy and she has a small mass. We are fortunate to have loving foster families who help older dogs and dogs with health issues.

Sweetpea's Give to the Max Story

Sweetpea was rescued from horrendous conditions at a breeding facility, amidst garbage and skeletons of deceased animals. Thanks to your help on Give to the Max last year, MNSR could address her extensive veterinary needs. Sweetpea's vet costs to get her healthy: $1125.00, including 15 dental extractions. Sweetpea has deeply bonded with her forever family and loves her daily walks!

Teddy's Give to the Max Story

I was so scared when I came to MNSR, too scared to even move. MNSR has special foster homes for Shelties like me, where we are given time to feel safe and begin to trust, and then they work with us to build our confidence. My foster family could see that other dogs help me to feel safe, so they found the PERFECT home for me with an experienced Sheltie family and a playful Sheltie brother. My teeth were bad when I came into rescue so I needed an extensive dental. My vet costs to get me healthy: $1626.54. Will you help MNSR help more scared Shelties like me?

14 Year Old Chauncy's Give to the Max Story

I know, I know, I'm not a Sheltie (though super cute, right?) If you live with a Sheltie long enough, you sort of become one. When MNSR learned that an incoming senior Sheltie had a brother in need, they immediately said they would take me, too! It meant the world to us that my sister and I could stay together. As a senior dog lacking in vet care, my vet care costs to get me healthy totaled $991.26. It was thanks to your generosity that MNSR could help both my sister and me. I have a very happy life with my forever family and now I help my mom with new foster Shelties!
