Moonpie is a mutt that we rescued in '04. She started a rescue race at our house, she has helped us socialize, rehabilitate, hand-raise and save over 300 foster animals in the past 9 years. In addition to that, Moonpie has beat cancer once, beat bladder stones twice, and never once complained. Ok maybe she complains if we don't feed her fast enough but what hound wouldn't?! She is a certified therapy dog and loves to go on her visits. Moonpie is so busy she even has her own bucket list. She works hard, volunteers often, plays harder, and is my best friend! We recently went to a luau (#73 on her bucket list) and she hula hula'd her way over to the treat line to get something delicious.

Moonpie goes to work with me every day, I take her to fundraisers to raise money for the shelter, and we go to parks, parties, and other places for fun times!

In addition to raising animals and fostering them, Moonpie has adopted 4 cats since 2005, the first one a kitten that survived hurricane Katrina and was never claimed, and the last was adopted two years ago after being attacked by a dog and left with damaged brains. Even though he sometimes acts like a zombie, and sometimes he acts like a frog she watches over him and will keep him warm on cold nights.

Moonpie loves to visit nursing homes, the ladies and gentlemen there love to see her visit too!

She loves to make new friends of any species. She even made friends with a pig once! Whether you're a zombie, a human, a squirrel, a cat, a horse, a cow, or a zebra, Moonpie will be happy to just hang out and be your friend. She even has the grace to look guilty when she farts.
