These are just some of the stories that demonstrate what Love From Louie is all about.
Abbie would like to send out a HUGE Thank You to all of our Love From Louie supporters. This week celebrates her one year anniversary being with us. When we met, she was a sickly, 6 pound euthanasia request but because there was no medical history, I opted for iv fluids and a 24 wait. With the nurturing of the pack, this girl crawled straight up the hill to live and is a robust 13.6 pounds. Your prayers and donations are celebrated in this beautiful...read more
A Rough Start, But A Fresh Start For Nona: Nona was a county foster request that I picked up last week after she had been removed from her unsatisfactory home. The County veterinarian did not believe that she could survive in the shelter. Nona was started on antibiotics on Thursday but had a steady decline over the weekend and was back at the vet early Sunday morning where she was diagnosed with pneumonia. New meds are already having a positive effect and, as of 8:00 am this morning the County has released their hold. As soon as she’s...read more
I met this little girl at the Dog Pound where she had been lying for eleven days with a crushed pelvis on the left side and a severe laceration on her right leg.

This sweet girl Skye was tearfully and lovingly surrendered to our care last evening by her young, overwhelmed companion who knew Skye needed urgent medical care and was unable to pay for it.

But when the condition reappeared and was dramatically worse he desperately started searching for options. Although family and friends urged him to take her to the dog pound, he contacted several rescue groups and was told they could not assist...read more
Oscar, a young purebred dachshund, was found running down a country road in the middle of the night and was spotted by John Walling on his way home from work. John and his wife Heather are long time supporters of Love From Louie and die-hard dog lovers. After several days of knocking on doors, placing on-line ads and hanging poster in the area the dog was found with no response, John and Heather contacted love from Louie seeking assistance. Dr. Margaret Berry from Mt. Hope Veterinary Clinic in Lansing, gave Oscar a thorough check-up,...read more
Rose is a therapy dog that visits with people in the hospital. She is a great pyrenees about 8 years old and was rescued not that long ago and when she took the therapy dog test she passed with flying colors. Therapy dogs are a great asset to people that are in the hospital long term because they not only help them forget about their worries for a short time but they also offer unconditional love. Therapy dogs have a wonderful way of lifting peoples spirits and imrpoving their signs of well being because they are always excited to see someone...read more
