The Story

2 years ago, Bonnie and her brother Clyde were rescued from a California shelter by  There were sent by the rescue to a foster home in Eastern WA. 

This last August,  Bonnie was found in a shelter in Walla Walla, WA. Every effort was made to return Bonnie to her rescue in Canada. All offers to bring Bonnie to her rescue in Canada were rejected for one reason or another by the owner of the rescue. The rescue in Canada,then requested that Bonnie be placed into boarding. 

People here believed the rescues excuses and even went out of their way to help BONNIE.  People, who had no idea of the track record this rescue has for abandoning dogs, even took Bonnie to the vet for an exam and have prepared to get her medical treatment she needs. BONNIE ALSO NEEDS SURGERY FOR CONDITIONS SHE HAS HAD SINCE A PUPPY ACCORDING TO OUR VET.

Now, BONNIE HAS BEEN IN BOARDING FOR OVER 2 MONTHS and the rescue has not made any payments or ANY attempts to reclaim Bonnie!!

THANKFULLY,  the microchip was never transferred by the rescue and we were able to get the puller from CA, the person listed on the chip, to sign Bonnie over to us.

I want to help Bonnie, but I can't pay the bill on our own and need your help. We are seeking a foster or even a forever home so ensure that Bonnie can FINALLY end her time in the rescue/shelter world.

This baby has been bounced around since she was a pup and her brother is missing. Lets end her time with this shoddy rescue and get her out of here.

PLEASE SHARE AND HELP US FREE BONNIE. Contact Patti Angelizat if you have any questions. Valhalla Rescue is a 501c3 Federally recognized organization. 100% of all donations go directly to the dogs.

Fundraiser Updates

Bonnie is going wonderfully and you can see all her updated pictures on our facebook page,

She is friendly with other dogs and her worst habits are jumping up on people cuz she is so happy and her amazing ability to suddenly lose all her muscles and melt to the floor when she doesn't want to leave...She can turn into dead weight in a millisecond and we LOVE it...

Please help us pay off her bill so that we can move forward. We have agreed to pay $1000 of the $1500+ bill that MICHELLE BINETTE stuck the boarding facility with AND we took Bonnie in for an emergency surgery that should have been done years ago for a chronic condition she has had since a puppy...ALL things that Hearts of Rescue took money to do for her and didn't

The boarding facility is happy to work with us and wants Bonnie out of there as much as we do, so we have paid them the money collected so far and they have agreed to let us make payments on the reduced balance they gave us while we continue to fundraise.


We already have her scheduled to see our vet at A Valley Animal Hospital 253-833-6701 TOMORROW for her oral surgery. If you would like to donate directly to her vet expenses, Just call and let them know it's for Bonnie!

UPDATE 10/21/13 11:00am

We are 1/2 way to our goal! We are expecting to hear an answer today on whether the kennel facility will take less than the OVER $1000 owed.

MEDICAL UPDATE:  Theresa Hamilton took Bonnie to the vet when she noticed a cyst on her cheek. The vet drained it and placed Bonnie on antibiotics, suggesting that it be removed to prevent the need to constantly need to drain it.

During the exam, the vet noticed that Bonnie also has extremely long canines that have caused large holes in the roof of her mouth. These holes are filling with food that ends up going bad and causing her extreme bad breath and infections in her mouth and gums causing her pain when she eats. 

This is a problem that Bonnie has had for quite some time and evidence that her previous rescue did not take her to the vet during her 2 years in their posession. It is very probable that if they had, they would know of Bonnies mouth and any reputable vet would of recommended it be corrected IMMEDIATELY to ease her pain. Now 2 years later, She will.

If the boarding kennel agrees to take a reduced amount than the $1000 we are asking for we will use the remainder to ensure Bonnie gets immediate surgery on her mouth and cyst.

We are waiting for the owner of the facility to return our call to talk about reducing the amount owed due to the situation and our desire to help get Bonnie out.

We are HOPING that the owner will agree to less, BUT we would like to have as much money gathered as possible to present to them during the discussion and just in case they do not work with us. If the kennel does accept less, which we are hopeful the owner will,  we'll GLADLY return any unused amount or place it towards Bonnie's care, training and search for a wonderful forever home.

Bonnie will finally get the chance she was denied for so long.
