Grace Park Animal Hospital

 

 

Grace Park Animal Hospital is a valued partner in the Saving Grace Network. Dr. Strunk is not only an accomplished Veterinarian but also dedicated to promoting rescue and helping shelter animals.  He has helped dogs through Saving Grace with severe trauma with expertise and time, and because of this, they were able to be adopted and have wonderful, long lives with great families.

Providing follow up care and rehab Dr. Strunk makes sure the patient is given the best possible chance at a full recovery. He is also one of our top consultants when it comes to orthopedic cases. Here at Saving Grace we get many, many orthopedic injuries. Either from neglect, gun shots or close encounters with vehicles, not a week goes by that we aren’t faced with some difficult decisions. Dr. Strunk looks at x-rays and evaluates the dog free of charge to help us determine the best course of treatment. He lets us know if a leg can be saved or can be safely removed. We talk about the quality of life for this dog moving forward. His donation of time and expertise cannot be measured.

Dr. Strunk, his wife Amy and everyone at Grace Park Animal Hospital put forth so much care and compassion when it comes to our rescue. They care for our pack and raise money to boot. It’s because of partners like them we can continue to save and rehab so many dogs.

We are most grateful for the services they provide and for the difference they make in the lives of many animals.

Wake Forest Animal Hospital

Wake Forest Animal Hospital (WFAH) has been one of our most valued partners and sponsors since day one. From the early days when Molly was just starting out, helping one dog and one adoption at a time, they have been by her side through thick and thin. Those were the days when an emergency bill was catastrophic to our small rescue and extensive care like heartworm treatments were something that determined if we could save a dog or not.

No matter what the problem, WFAH has always helped us figure out the best options for our program and the dogs we save. WFAH continues to help us provide the best possible care to the many dogs we serve and works diligently with our foster program and volunteers to provide top-notch care. Over the years, they have helped us patch-up countless dogs who have suffered significant neglect or cruelty, giving those animals a second chance for life as a well-loved family member. They have provided countless life-saving surgeries that have allowed dogs to be placed up for adoption and go on to live long healthy lives with forever families. Their staff has offered quality care and compassion to the many we have saved as well as those who were given a chance, if only for a short time because their trauma or neglect was beyond repair.

Their support, expertise, dedication and compassion has made a difference in many lives through Saving Grace, not only to our furry friends but our volunteers, foster families and staff as well. We are forever grateful for this partnership and always happy to see a Saving Grace dog become a long-term Wake Forest Animal Hospital Client!

Snap NC

Snap NC been one of Saving Grace’ s most valuable partners even before our rescue was officially established. As a mobile hospital, their mission is to go into the most underserved counties and address the over pet population epidemic and provide basic vaccinations along with spay/neuter surgeries. They have provided a significant service, not only to Saving Grace and our animals, but also low income residents in many surrounding communities that we work with. Whether we are partnering to save animals from a puppy mill, cruelty case or animal shelter, we can count on SNAP and their surgeons and technicians to provide high quality care. They work with us hand in hand to assess and determine the medical needs of each animal that comes through their door. It doesn’t matter that the animals we bring to them are unowned and have little if any previous veterinary care, they are evaluated and treated equally with clinical expertise, compassion and care.

Not only does SNAP provide quality spay/neuter surgeries, but they also regularly provide amputation and enucleation surgeries as well as a variety of other essential care. Their efforts make dogs who’ve never received veterinary care, and often suffered long term pain, comfortable and adoptable. We are thankful for SNAP, the work they do in our underserved communities and the professional, compassionate care they provide to Saving Grace Animals. . Find out more>

One fateful day I adopted a dog, Bailey from an animal shelter. The moment I laid eyes on him, I had never been so sure that he was meant to spend his life with me, it’s a feeling I can barely even describe but it was very clear. Soon after I adopted Bailey, I decided I wanted to volunteer at the shelter and asked what they needed.  I had sent them practically hundreds of photos of Bailey and so they said why don’t you help us take photos of the dogs needing homes, and so the journey began, and I found my true passion in life as a result.  To this day, I still photograph rescue dogs and rescue dogs hold a very special place in my heart.

In 1998, I started my pet photography business and soon after became a full-time pet photographer. It’s been an amazing journey! Doing what I love is like a dream come true. I have had the chance to photograph so many wonderful animals and meet incredible people. Every animal is special in their own way, and I love that about them, they all teach great lessons and give us so much joy and unconditional love.

Bailey, lived to be almost 17, he truly changed my life in so many wonderful ways, I thank God for that dog for showing me the way in life. The lessons he taught me were endless… to always be kind, to make friends wherever you go and to always follow your passion and your heart! He inspired my tag line ” For the Love of Dogs’ for that is truly why I do what I do! (find out more>)

Gourmutt's Bakery

Gourmutt’s Bakery was founded in 2000 out of a growing concern for the health and well-being of our beautiful Golden Retriever, Zoe.

After consulting with numerous veterinarians and a canine allergy specialist, we learned of the numerous preservatives and unhealthy ingredients used in many dog foods and treats.  For example, the ingredient Propylene Glycol (commonly found in soft treats) is a chemical used as a solvent in brake fluid.  In pet food it is used as a preservative and flavor enhancer due to its sweet taste.  We chose to make Zoe better tasting treats that are also nutritionally better for her.

We began experimenting with numerous recipes and after lots of trial and error, we came up with treats that Zoe loves and we felt good about giving her.  Other dog lovers learned about our healthy homemade treats and started requesting cookies.

Due to the tremendous popularity of our treats the company has grown from our kitchen to our retail bakery in Raleigh, NC.

Our delectable goodies are baked on premises daily using only the freshest human grade ingredients. Our treats contain NO added Salts, Sugars, Preservatives or Artificial Dyes. All of our treats are tested by the Clemson University Food Sciences Department and registered with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and the FDA. Not only will your dogs LOVE our treats, but you will also feel good about giving them. (find out more>)

Furfetched Photography

I’ve been interested in photography for a while now, I remember as a kid taking pictures of our family dog with our Kodak Instamatic, then as a grad student in Botany photographing alpine plants in New Hampshire. Then digital came along, and a dog that got me involved in flyball (thanks Kazul!). I loved the images that the talented photographers on our club, Diane Lewis and Sam Bennett, were taking, and I really wanted to learn to photograph dog sports. I love taking pictures of dogs doing their favorite thing!

I have a portrait studio in my home and would love to photograph your dog!

I live in Raleigh NC and travel in the southeast US, primarily Virginia, South Carolina, and Georgia, and to Indianapolis IN for the CanAm Flyball tournament. If you like my images and would like me to photograph your flyball, agility, or disk event please contact me at irene@furfetched.com.

Thank you!
