Jill Alchorn was my next-door neighbor and I was privileged to get to know a whole parade of lucky foster dogs who passed through her home. Molly was just one, but perhaps my favorite.

Maximus and Danny

"In remembrance of Maximus who I adopted from GSGSR a little over 2-1/2 years ago. He was 7-1/2 when I adopted him, the only regret being that he did not live longer damn cancer. And also for the care and support that you gave to my new GSGSR dog, Danny. He is another great rescue on your part and that I get to share because of your organization".

“We were honored to have Sophie for almost 10 years. She was magnificent - the finest of all our Shepherds. We sorely miss the walks and squirrel chasing, and having her in our lap. Everyone in our neighbor knew Sophie. RIP at the Rainbow Bridge dear friend."
