Rescues Unite To Save Mountain Dogs

When we were notified that there were 3 young Cane Corso’s abandoned on a mountain, we couldn’t NOT HELP.  We did not hesitate.  Not knowing what to expect as far as health and behavior issues, we stepped right up.
We now know that these three dogs are going to need a lot of rehab and we are asking you, our village for help.
Better together, we have combined forces along with Deity Animal Rescue and Paws For Life K9 Rescue to help these dogs heal and go on to live a beautiful life.

PLEASE HELP by making a donation today.
Every dollar counts. We need your help.
Read more about this incredible rescue, we hope you can see in them what we did, and not turn away.

Abandoned twenty miles into the Montrose forest on a very steep and remote mountainside, these three puppies have been doing their best to survive hunger, thirst and harsh weather conditions. 


They were first spotted in late March by hikers. Dog Days Search and Rescue along with Montrose Search and Rescue were then notified and sprung into action to help save the trio. Various other individuals and rescue groups had also been traveling deep into the forest to feed and water the dangerously emaciated and dehydrated dogs, who could not survive the harsh conditions in the forest alone & had to be trapped.


Soon traps were set, finally all three dogs were brought to safety. On April 27th, after an entire month of planning and preparation, Gracie, George and Steve were rescued off of the mountain. And that’s when our work began.


We teamed up with Deity Animal Rescue and Paws For Life K9 Rescue & together we vowed to do whatever it takes to set them up to be happy and successful in life. Their future is now in our hands and we will not fail them.

Gracie, George and Stevie are spending a few weeks with the amazing trainer Cheri Wulff Lucas. They are being allowed to decompress, and to be shown that they no longer need to exist in fear of surviving. They will be taught that they can trust humans and how to feel safe and confident. They are receiving 24 hour care and are already showing great signs of progress. 


It took a village to save these dogs and bring them off of the mountain. It will now take a village to get them to a place where they can be totally rehabilitated from the trauma of being abandoned with no way to survive on their own. 

To make certain they can finally get a chance at the life they deserve, we have created this GoFundMe so that together, as a collective, we can do what is right for these dogs. 

Humans have failed them miserably, but now we have been given the chance to change their destinies and give them hope for a safe life, a home and family. We are asking our animal loving community for their support to make this dream come true. Gracie, George and Stevie are still so young, with many years ahead of them. Let’s take what was wrong and make it right. Let’s do this. Together we can.

Anything helps. And we are so grateful.
