Dog & Cat Relocation
Allison began rescuing and finding permanent homes for street dogs and cats from islands all over the world in 1997. In 2004, she started working in the Galapagos Islands to spay and neuter dogs and cats, and rescued a dog-named Kiki from San Cristobal. Kiki was infamous among the fishermen for terrorizing and preying on land iguanas. Since 2004, Allison has single-handedly rescued dozens of homeless dogs and cats off Galapagos and re-homed them in the United States.
from Faith’s new mom, Susan:
Faith is doing well. She is a doll – everyone thinks she is very cute and very sweet. Thank you so much for saving Faith and sending her to us. She is a joy and we all love her very much.
Targus’ owner wanted a mean guard dog and thought he could create one by kicking Targus around. When Targus didn’t growl or bite, his owner didn’t want him anymore. The Jones’ family did and Targus loves his new home.
from Stephanie, Targus’ new mom:
Targus was brought into our family in January 2011, and has been a bundle of joy ever since. He has earned the nickname Lazy Lizard around our house since he is more mellow than ourcat. Targus gets along great with our family and has won his way into our hearts and spirits. He loves to cuddle up and be held like a little baby, which is funny since he is not exactly lap dog size. He enjoys lying in front of the fire chewing up whatever new toyhe has. Our children love to explain were he came from and how important it is to take care of all the animals regardless of location. I love the fact they know how much they have helped not just Targus but the other species on the island as well. Thank you so much for bringing him into our home and lives. He has touched a very special place in every person he meets.
from Dharma’s new mom, Lori:
I love my little Dharma! She is adjusting very well to civilization and a spoiled and privileged life. She is super smart and already knows so many things. She comes when I call, fetches a ball, walks off lead and on. She is just so sweet and special. I am blessed to have found her and you all for rescuing such precious animals and helping to preserve the eco-system of the Galapagos Islands.
from Gus’s new mom, Rebecca:
Gus is just fabulous. We’ve been taking him out to meet new people and other dogs, and he made some good puppy friends last night! Brooks has taken him out for a couple runs, which he seems to really enjoy. He lays under the table when we eat dinner, and he is learning to sit, stay, kennel, leave it, and come. Essentially, just living a happy puppy life with plenty of good food, outdoor time, and lovin’! We are so happy with him. And if the way he jumps out of his skin when we come home is any indication, he likes us too.
from Bella’s new mom, Kathleen:
Isabela (Bella) was found curled up outside her owners home on a pile of rocks. Allison had witnessed the owner being rough with her and offered to take the dog off his hands, which he willingly agreed to. At the tender age of 1, she had already had a litter of puppies. Evan is overjoyed, and she is a beautiful, docile, gentle dog… the perfect companion for us and the perfect distraction for Evan. Last night I lay in bed feeling pretty miserable. Sweet Bella, who has traveled so far and been through so much herself, must have sensed my emotion. She hopped up and dug her nose into my chin. She is truly a comfort. There is a bumper sticker I saw once promoting animal rescue that says “Who Rescued Who?” I think, looking into her large brown eyes, that there is a lot of truth there. While we are giving Bella a second chance for a happy and healthy life, she is rescuing me at the same time.
