Here are a few before and afters of some of our very special RMG dogs. We learn so much from the ones that have been through the most. All of us at RMG agree we should live more like the ones we save. The most abused and neglected teach us to move past the hurt and live in the moment.

Animal control found out about Annie when they went out to inspect a neglect case. Annie wasn't the one they went to see, but when the owner came out with her, they were shocked at this horribly emaciated girl. We were contacted to help and we quickly got her to the vet. She was dying from hooks and whips and almost didn't make it.
She found a great foster mom who eventually became her forever mom. Now Annie romps with two other RMG dogs and a beautiful black dachshund who watches over them all.
Animal control was called out to pick up a dog who had been hit by a car and was in hiding. What they found was one of the worst abuse cases they'd ever seen. She couldn't walk or stand but the tail didn't stop wagging. We immediately stepped in to make sure she was loved for as long as she had... We didn't think she would make it. Her will to live was nothing less than extraordinary. The first vet wanted to take her back leg, while the second vet said hang on a minute. She had horrible mange, raging infections in her body, and a temperature of 105 degrees. She never cried or moaned, she only wanted to give kisses.
She's now officially the RMG mentor! She was adopted within our group and is the first to greet, love, and teach other dogs in her foster home and especially puppies. When Hope was found the vet determined she had recently had given birth. She didn't get to take care of her puppies but she gets to make sure all of the ones in our group are loved!
Tate was saved in 2012 - he'd been thrown out of a car and left to die on the side of the road - We think that Tate was used as a bait dog and when they were done with him they decided to just dump him in the country. Tate was literally skin and bones when first saved but he thrived once we got him the care he needed. Tate found a mom and dad to love forever and they say he changed their lives. One forgotten and abused dog that found the love he had never had. Now he never has to worry again.
Milo was found chained to a stake in the ground out in the country. He had no food and the only water he was able to get came from a dumped sink on the ground. Whoever owned him had moved and just left him behind - We are so grateful that animal control found him and got him to safety. He was another we weren't sure would survive. But this miracle boy quickly got the love and care he needed and a set of twin foster moms that fell in love with this spunky dog. He beat the odds and found a happily ever after where he will never worry again about anything ! Truly a survivor with a heart of gold!
