Just over a year ago we fostered then adopted Phoebe.
Shortly after Phoebe joined our pack, Betty came home with us as a foster. As either you know or guessed she was also permanently adopted.
Both Betty & Phoebe were rescued by the San Diego Humane Society from a horrid hoarding situation. Today more than a year later they are happy healthy little girls.
Originally 92 Yorkies were found confined in a dark filthy room within a home here in a San Diego Suburb. They became known as The 92 Yorkies. Several weeks later another 30 or so were discovered hidden in a back room of a restaurant that the residents of the house owned. Then again several weeks after that one of the guilty owners was arrested in a motor home in Nevada escaping with yet another 40 or so Yorkies.
Betty and Phoebe were in that last rescue out of that escaping motor home.
We take a moment to honor the San Diego Humane Society for their heroic efforts and to also congratulate Betty & Phoebe for their first anniversary as part of our loving pack.
When all was said and done and the pregnant females all gave birth the total of rescued Yorkies came close to 200. We are honored and blessed that two of those came to our home and my father in law adapted a third one named Apple.

look how pretty the girls are!
and the better half looks as handsome as his dad!
and my fearsome is so smoochable!
Lovely what a great story.
Awwww. Good hearts are so hard to find, and you have one of the goodest 🙂
Aren’t they just the cutest you can imagine? (The little doggies, I mean). Bless you for your part in their rescue and allowing them a happy, healthy and comfortable life after such a bleak start. If only there were a lot more like you – and a lot fewer pets in such horrific situations.
Cutie patooties, all the way around!
When I was unemployed last summer I donated my time to work with the Bucks County ASPCA a couple mornings a week to walk dogs and spend time with them. I was very happy that almost all the dogs they get find homes. Cats are not always so lucky. Sad.
Those dogs are lucky to have you. Such adorable pictures!
You gave them a second chance, a shot at a real life. THANK YOU!
They are sooooo cute!
Such a lovely story.
