Geri - (Geriatric)
January 1, 1999 - Found abandoned in the road, starving, with bald patches on his ears and face, Geri could barely move as we gently transported him to the veterinarian. His ears were so swollen that he was unable to hear most sounds. Weighing in at 35 pounds, less then half of what he should have, Geri was so malnourished that almost all of his teeth had rotted out and his body was beginning to fail.
With many blessings and lots of love we were able to get this sweet dog back to his ideal weight before placing him in a wonderful animal friendly home six months later. All he ever wanted was a soft, warm bed to lie on and lots of attention. What a snuggler! His favorite pastimes were flopping down on top of you for some patting, hoarding bones only to eat them too quickly and get the coughs, or affectionately snapping at a passing dog with his one tooth.

New Hope Sanctuary for the Animals is a rescue, haven, and adoption organization for abused, tortured, and abandoned innocent animals and pets. We are based on the Christian principles that God intended humans to follow as guardians of His creation. We are a not-for-profit welfare, protection, rescue, rights organization dedicated to the compassionate care of stray and abandoned cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, litters, and farm animals (chickens, pigs, etc.). We encourage people to adopt and provide kind and loving care for a cat, dog, kitten, puppy, or litter, as well as to promote humane population control through spaying and neutering. We are involved in direct action in rescuing and placing animals within a network of animal groups across the nation, and in increasing public awareness and education about the abuse, torture, factory farming, slaughtering, butchering and the murder of innocents, and the need to spay and neuter. Through the media, special events, and publications we promote anticruelty, love, compassion, mercy, respect, and kindness towards all animals, animal theology, and compassionate alternatives to animal products.
