New from California :)

Hello everyone! I am new to this forum.. I haven't been on a forum for a long time!

My name is Melanie, and I have 4 dogs (But live with 15 total including 4 foster dogs).

I also have 4 cats (But live with 14 total). And I feed a lot more than that, this area is out of control with stray cats. I trap and alter as many as I can, but there always seems to be more kittens being born and more cats dumped here.

I foster for a dog rescue, and I also foster for a cat rescue (But have no fosters currently.. And I do transports for said cat rescue..Which is the largest cage free cat rescue in the Country). I seem to be one of the few people who enjoy bottle feeding! I always end up with the task, but its rewarding.

Ill get to the pictures of the gang, starting with the most recent pictures I took today actually:

This is Bodhi, my 2 1/2 year old pug mix!

Elliot, my mom's 12 year old dachshund

Pippa, my mom's almost 2 year old Pomeranian mix. She was a foster failure! My mom is a horrible foster lol

This is Cowboy (Cow). He is one of our fosters and is 5 months old

Bjorn, my 7 1/2 year old Poodle mix. Not really sure what hes mixed with!

Gunnar, my mom's 3 year old chihuahua

Reese (7) and Jannah (8). My mom's dachshunds.

The 4 fosters. Heidi (the mom), Cow, Thumb, and Finn (her puppies). 2 out of 5 have been adopted.

All 4 of my dogs! Bjorn, Bob, Bodhi, and Cartman. I live kind of next door to my mom, and so our dogs share the outside yard space, but I live with 4, and she lives with 7 (And the 4 fosters go back and forth). The best way to describe our pack living situation! And cat wise, I live with my 4 indoor only cats, and she lives with the rest (Who are indoor/outdoor).

And speaking of cats:

Nelson, Skunk, Lola, Paris, and Callie

And Arnold.. And I am done with pictures for now! I have THOUSANDS to go through!

Hi and welcome! OMG, fellow Dachshunds! I have four Doxies; 3 girls and a boy. You have such a lovely group!

This is my girl, Nola. She's a two year old red sable.

All your pups are adorable...I would never make a good foster mom cause most would end up never leaving my house bless your heart for giving these animals a fighting chance.
Oh! by the way welcome.
