ACAP currently has three dogs in our care who are in need of costly medical treatment. Your tax-deductible donations are used to provide treatment for these dogs as well as food and another necessary items.


I think that I should win the Survivor cash prize! After all, I have faced FAR more treacherous circumstances than those people who voluntarily stranded themselves on an island. My story is full of intrigue and adventure. If your curiosity is piqued, read on!

A homeless man “adopted” me and I lived with him under an overpass off I-75. Several months ago, I was injured somehow and I had to have some of my toes amputated. I stayed at the vet clinic for over 3 months because they wanted to make sure that I was healed before I went back to this man. He really loves me but obviously just cannot provide adequate care for me.

A police officer would bring us food and check on us once in awhile. The officer stopped by one day and discovered that my leg was infected. The man agreed to release me to the officer so that I could get medical attention. I was whisked to the vet and thankfully,get to keep my leg! Whew!!

I am healing now, but have many months of recovery to go. I am walking on my bad leg and am expected to fully recover. I do not have feeling in that leg, but run and walk just fine. My IV antibiotic treatment is very expensive. It is $130.00 a treatment.

To date, these nice rescue folks have spent over $500.00 to address all of my medical needs. Please help me enjoy the life that I deserve. I will give love back ten fold…..


My story’s motto is that things aren’t always what they seem, so be sure not to judge a book (or a dog!) by its cover.

You see, I play with other dogs by mouthing them. I don’t bite and would NEVER hurt them, but I was the only dog at my previous home and I was trying to play with those chickens. Let’s just say that THOSE girls run with scissors!!

My former owner thought that I was trying to eat the chickens and decided that he was going to shoot me. That scared the living daylights out of me! Although he didn’t get a chance to use me for target practice, he did break my leg to deter me from chasing those silly chickens….

Things were looking bleak, but my former “mom” took pity on me and took me to the home of a lady in our county who does animal rescue. She left me tied to her porch with a note. I was sweating bullets for a few hours, but luckily, I was accepted into the Monticello Dog Spa.

The vet told the rescue group who took me in that if they paid for surgery for my leg it may disable me even more. I can run and walk, my gait just looks a bit funny. I attend weekly aquatic therapy to strengthen my back leg and I have made a lot of progress.

Now all I need is a family to call my own. Would you consider making a donation to help fund my care?
These girls require ongoing medical care. All of them can make full recoveries. Your generosity will not only help us give them the quality of life that they deserve, but will also allow us to find them families of their own.

Would you consider making a donation on the PayPal link on this web site to help fund their care? ACAP, Inc. is a volunteer, non-profit group. The individual members fund all of the care for our foster kids out of our own pockets. If we raise enough funds to help one of these girls, it helps us provide aid to the next dog in need.

Thank you for your generosity! If you make a donation of $50.00 or more, please contact one of the volunteers. We will gladly send you a letter for your taxes….

Why bother you ask? ............
One morning an elderly man was walking on a
nearly deserted beach. He came upon a boy
surrounded by thousands and thousands of
starfish. As eagerly as he could, the youngster
was picking them up and throwing them 
back into the ocean.

Puzzled, the older man looked at the young
boy and asked, "Little boy, what are you doing?"

The youth responded without looking up,
I'm trying to save these starfish, sir."

The old man chuckled aloud,
and queried, "Son,
there are thousands
of starfish and only one
of you. What difference
can you make?" 
Holding a starfish in his
hand, the boy turned to the
man and, gently tossing the
starfish into the water, said,
"It will make a difference to 
that one!"
