In memory of our beautiful Honey who crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge on May 31, 2012. Honey came into Daisy's Place with her lifelong companion Buddy - these two precious old souls finally found the love they deserve with their foster mom Heather and her family. Honey had a brain tumor and we did everything possible to keep her comfortable - Heather made sure her last year was happy and filled with joy. Honey died at home with Heather, knowing she was loved and treasured. Now Honey joins the Daisy Angels where she will watch over us all and help guide us to those who need our love and care.
In memory of our sweet Gizmo who crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge on August 31, 2012. Gizmo came to us after he had been left at the shelter for the second time - his first person passed away and then the person who adopted Gizmo could no longer care for him. From the moment he became a Daisy Dog, Gizmo touched our hearts, he was a true Labby through and through, full of love with an amazing spirit and a tail wag and kiss for all he met! Gizmo was surrounded by love when he took his last breath, cradled in the arms of his foster mom, Linda, and his Auntie Sharon. We miss our sweet boy, but know that he's with the Daisy Angels as he watches over us and guides us to those who need our love and care.
A beautiful soul left this earth on October 18, 2012 - Lordie Mercy joined the Daisy angels. Lordie came to us after being abandoned at a high kill shelter after what was obviously years of neglect. With the love of her incredible foster family, Lordie blossomed into the grande dame of Daisy's Place. As Lordie's body began to fail, her spirit remained strong - strengthened further by the love of her long term foster family, Pam, Scott and her beloved girl, Gigi. Lordie lived her last years as a cherished member of the family and as she took her last breath she was surrounded by their love and went to the bridge knowing she will remain in their hearts forever.
Daisy's Place Retriever Rescue is dedicated to saving and finding loving homes for Retrievers (and Retriever mixes) six years and older. Occassionally we do take dogs into rescue that are under six years old - some of them come to us from shelters where their correct age was misjudged and sometimes we just can't help but save the younger ones from certain death - we affectionately call these younger honorary Daisy Dogs, 'rosebuds'. We are an all volunteer non-profit organization and all of our dogs are in private foster homes. If you're interested in adopting one of our lovable Daisy Dogs - or Rosebuds - please fill out an adoption application on our Be A Link in the Daisy Chain page.
