We are Liz E.'s Pekingese Rescue and Sanctuary.
  We not only rescue Pekingese (and other animals), we have a safe place for them to live without timelines. Our specialty is our sanctuary. We have never turned a blind eye to those who needed us the most.

Do you know Pete? Pete is one of our most recent urgent care dogs. Pete was literally pulled off the euthanasia table at a shelter, where he was already sedated. Our volunteer grabbed him and rushed him to the emergency hospital. The ER vet looked at him doubtingly. Pete was picked up as a stray with both anal glands abscessed to the point of having eaten his tissue and into his legs, infested with maggots. The doctors didn't know if he would be able to use his back legs or be able to defecate on his own. They worried he was septic. We told the attending vet, "We save lives." She understood and joined our effort. After a long journey and hours upon hours of home care, Pete is here with us today, still mending but happy and playful. Every night we tell him the story of how he became a carefree boy!

We have many stories like Pete's from those with diseased eyes, to emergency spine surgeries, to chronic illnesses like cerebellar disease.  We are more than a rescue, we are an animal rescue and sanctuary in Arkansas. We take in those who have nowhere else to go. We take those who are ill, who have disabilities, extreme behavioral issues or who have other chronic illnesses.  If they are adoptable, we work tirelessly to find them a good home, the right home. But when dogs come to our sanctuary, no matter their illness or issue, we ensure that they have a gratifying life of rolling in the grass, going for rides, sleeping on soft beds, eating meals and socializing with other dogs. They live indoors, like a family dog would, not in crates or kennels. Those who stay here, live the rest of their lives like any spoiled member of the family. Many of our dogs have lost their human parents to chronic illnesses, nursing facilities or death. They are confused when they come, but in time, they learn a new life with their “friends.”  In 2017, we adopted out 26 and took in 32; in 2016, we adopted out 28 and took in 46. In July alone, we have taken in 15 total--that's just this month--many with long term health issues.  Many are seniors or geriatrics. We currently have 10 who are completely blind or impaired, one with cerebellar disease, and some with chronic heart, lung and spinal issues. We have saved over 100 dogs within the last three years!

We positively need a mini bus for the dogs. Sometimes we take several to the doctor at once for surgeries or vaccinations, or we take them to visit the elderly in long-term care facilities. The dogs love to go for a ride.  We need it to be a safe and reliable ride. We feel we can get a dependable mini-bus for around $20,000 that we won't outgrow and that will be safe for the dogs.

We are overwhelmed and so grateful at the kindness and the generosity of all of you. Next steps now will be to look for a vehicle that we can all fit in. We are truly amazed at the support. When we woke up this morning and saw that we had met the goal, it was nothing but happy tears. We hope that you will continue to follow us on our Facebook page. That is where you will be able to see the regular day in and day out of the antics of the Pekingese. Please don’t forget we do have dogs up for adoption right now, so please share with those who you know will make great peke parents. Thank you all again!
The hairiest hugs from all of us,
Leasha and Dave

Hi Everyone!
We call this picture, "In Good Company" because we know we are in good company with all of the support we have seen through the last 29 days since we launched the Peke Patrol fundraiser publicly. We have raised just over half of our goal. Our intention was to take this down on Day 30. However, many of you said to keep it up a little bit longer to see if we can get the numbers up a little bit more. We would like to start looking for that Walter Wagon this month, whether it's a small motorhome or a shuttle bus--we aren't picky, but insurance might be! We want the wheels turning and a reliable ride. If we break down on the side of the road, how do we put everyone in the tow truck? Who's going to drive us home? Many of you know, it has been our season this year. The most recent was Pierce, a very misunderstood little dog. He has found safe haven here, likely for life. We haven't turned down anyone who has needed us. We want to be able to be there for them. Please share our page, our adoptable dogs and our fundraiser--we need to get those Pekes Patrolling! Many thanks and the hairiest hugs from all of us,
Leasha and Dave

Hi Everyone!
We are at day 21 of our Walter's Wagon mini-bus fundraiser! We are cruising along! We hope that we can keep pushing uphill now, so later we can just go for a reliable ride that won't leave us stranded with dogs aboard! We hope you like this week's collage and we hope you are watching along on Facebook! On today's post, the dogs are pretending that they are polite and quiet and patient! LOL! Wait until you see Part 2, "Snacks!" THANK YOU to every one of you who has helped us and who supports what we do. Dogs live life without timelines at Liz E.'s! HUGS!

HI Everyone!
We are at 15 days in on the road to the minibus! We are sharing like crazy and we hope you are too! Not only are we hoping to gain enough to buy a safe and reliable vehicle, we also hope that more people will discover us, which will help us find great homes for our adoptable dogs! Arthur, Flower and Rottie pictured here are some of those adoptables! Please keep sharing! If everyone who just "liked" our page donated a few bucks, we'd be there! We are hoping to be ready to find Walter's Wagon, the Peke Patrol, vehicle in September! Thank you for all of your kindness and support! We are at about $4,500, almost 25% of the goal!
Hugs from all of us at Liz E.'s!
