When we first heard about Derby, he was in a county pound, diagnosed with testicular cancer and receiving virtually no treatment. (Most county budgets do not allow for basic testing, much less the more in-depth testing that Derby requires.)


​He was adopted on August 26 and visited Grace Vet Clinic the very next day. Derby is malnourished, has extremely bad arthritis, and needs a dental and some extractions.

One of our recent rescues was featured in the Illinois Times ... read about Gina and how The Helping Paw Project was instrumental in saving her lifehttp://illinoistimes.com/article-13554-dead-dogs-walking.html 

Look... Lima Bean has his forever home!

Remarkably, Derby’s blood test results were very good, and we are not certain at this time whether or not he has cancer. He is on a special diet to help him put on some weight, plus antibiotics and pain meds. 

​As soon as he is healthy enough, he will be neutered and we will have a biopsy done to determine whether he has cancer.

​In the meantime, Derby is living in the lap of luxury with his very own special ortho bed, three senior dog friends, and a fenced yard to leisurely explore at his pace.


Derby keeps an eye on his new best friend, Sadie. When Diane Templeton brought him home, Sadie showed him the ropes at his new house ... so now he follows her around. After all, she knows where those special treats are. We’re pretty certain that Derby never had chicken, sweet potatoes or those tasty yogurt puffs before he arrived here.  ​


The Helping Paw Project was featured in the July issue of Springfield's Own Magazine. This link will take you to the story and photos: http://www.sj-r.com/article/20140711/NEWS/140719990/11137/LIFESTYLE 

That’s how Gary’s younger sister, Lynda, describes the relationship between eight-year-old Molly and Gary Niehaus who recently adopted this precious little dog.

​Molly had lived with the same owner all of her life, and was a bit shy around strangers. Her owner wasn’t sure that Molly would adjust to someone new ... but when she met Gary, she soon hopped right up to be next to him on the couch. She quickly learned how to let him know when she wanted to go outdoors, and that she would get a treat when she came back in the house.

​Molly visited Grace Vet Clinic for a complete exam and blood tests, as she had not been to a vet for quite some time. She was incredibly well behaved. She is healthy, has met several of Gary’s family members (both humans and dogs), and likes sleeping on the bed. A ramp or doggy steps are on her shopping list. 

A match made in heaven...
