The Latest Scoop About What's Going On At Enchantment Rescue!



Little Miracles Happen All The Time

Lolita, April, 2014


There I sat, alone and afraid.
You got a call and came right away.

You bundled me up with blankets and love.
When I needed it most, you gave me a hug.


Before I came to ECR, I was so sick that I could not hold my head up and had very little fur. I lived in fear of several aggressive dogs and was always worried about food. Even though the vet thought I should be put to sleep, my foster mom rapped me in a blanket and took me home with her.


She cooked fresh salmon and sweet potatoes and placed it in my mouth and talked to me so sweetly that I ate a little. She rubbed my sore skin with warm lavender oil and placed me in a warm blanket and put me in bed with her. Slowly I started to eat and I got well again plus my fur grew back.

Lolita, June,2014


I learned that the world was not scary and cold.
That sometimes there's someone to have and to hold.
You taught me what love is, you helped me to mend.
You loved me and healed me and became my first friend.







Where your dog is concerned, spider and ant bites, bee stings and other insect bites can be irritating at best and life threatening at worst. Symptoms usually occur within minutes following an insect bite or sting and proceed rapidly. Symptoms usually include sudden onset of vomiting, diarrhea, staggering, rapid drop in blood pressure, swelling of the larynx leading to airway obstruction, seizures and cardiovascular collapse. Any of these symptoms calls for emergency treatment at an animal clinic. You should know where the closest 24 hr. clinic is located.


For less serious reactions you should keep on hand Children's Benadryl (diphendydramine). Ask your Vet for what dose to give your dog. Average Chihuahuas, 6 to 10 lbs. can be given 3 mls. in a syringe. Check with your Vet to make sure he agrees.


Peggy Leg


Peggy Leg for Tail Wagger 222.jpg


After 2 years in foster care ECR decided Peggy needed a home she could call her own both before and after her surgery. Two medical doctors who live on 160 acres of land in North Carolina that is home to rescued horses, goats, dogs, cats, etc. have adopted Peggy. Her new owners are familiar with the bionic limb program at North Carolina State Veterinary College and will be with Peggy when she receives her bionic paw, and will love her for the rest of her life.
