Help Save Me

Featured Pup of the Month


Meet Blue!

Blue is a beautiful Pitbull boy in search of his FURever home.

This handsome fella is 3 years old.

He absolutely LOVES children but would do best with older children since he doesn't know his own size.

He is extremally playful and does require a fenced in yard as he is a high energy dog.

Blue gets along well with most dogs but he prefers to play with females around his own size.

If you're looking for a playful lovebug Blue is the dog for you!


Peaches needs YOUR help!

Meet Peaches, a sweet, easy-going and loving girl. She came to us at the end of August 2021 from a kill-shelter in Arkansas where she ended up as a stray. 

She was highly pregnant when she came here and three days later she gave birth to 10 beautiful puppies. Unfortunately we lost all the babies due to fading puppy syndrome. Peaches was a wonderful momma and took the loss of her babies very hard.

She was finally able to go in and get spayed and met her next obstacle in life. She is heartworm positive! 

Now we are asking for YOUR help to pay for her treatment. Any amount, big or small, is very helpful and greatly appreciated by us and Peaches.

Cindy Faltemier, Washington, hasn’t met a dog in need that she didn’t think was worth rescuing. She has taken in dogs that many people thought were too old and others that people thought were too sick to bother with saving.


She finds homes for them all, or keeps them until she can.


Five years ago Faltemier set up Dog Saver, a no-kill dog shelter on the 8 acre property she and her husband, Doug, own off Highway AJ. But Faltemier admits she has been rescuing dogs for many more years than that.


The first were neighbor dogs that showed up at her door often hungry, but occasionally hurt. One that she calls Brown Dog started coming around in 2002.


“He would come over, hang out, eat and leave, go back home,” said Faltemier.
