Bollinger County Stray Project Report April 4 – 10 Last week I wrote about Yoda, a little Dachshund and Rat Terrier type mix who was run over. In the last week he has greatly improved in his ability to function. He has been walking, exercising over 10 minutes at a time, and he is even marking(…)
Bollinger County Stray Project Report March 28-April 3 A surprise development regarding the three missing Catahoula dogs that evidence suggested were stolen or let loose on Easter Sunday.

Bollinger County Stray Project Report March 21-27 UPDATE (3/28/16): 3 Missing Catahoula Dogs are HOME!!! I have three topics to discuss this week. A troubling case that appears by all accounts to have been a theft of three young spotted Catahoula male dogs tops my list. Some brazen soul or souls appear to have trespassed(…)

Bollinger County Stray Project Report January 25-31 We have good news to report about the two challenging dogs we adopted last week. Shy Collins is doing great, adjusting very fast to the lady of the house. I took a little longer to adjust to the husband. Still he bonded quickly compared to when he first(…)
Bollinger County Stray Project Report January 18-24 We adopted out two tough-to-adopt dogs this week. One was a very timid, shy and un-socialized male adult Dachshund mix. This former stray came from the Glenn Allen area thanks to the Collins family who tried for several days to catch him. When they drove him in the(…)
June 8-14, 2015 (written by Marilyn Neville) The week of July 12 will be my personal 10 year anniversary as unofficially being a foster and dog rescue. I say unofficially because we were not licensed, and frankly, we had no intentions of “rescuing” dogs or cats on a regular or constant basis. It all started(…)
June 15-21, 2015 (written by Marilyn Neville) This week we had calls regarding three litters that all seem to have been dumped. A group of 5 German Shepherd type mixes were found in a remote location of the county. A Great Pyrenees and two mix breed pups were found off of DD in the west central(…)
On 3/16/15, the Bollinger County Stray Project (BCSP) received a very generous grant from the Sidewalk Angels Foundation!! This makes the second of such grants from Sidewalk Angels. In 2013, soon after we received our 501 c-3 tax status as a non-profit, they awarded an equally generous grant to BCSP. Singer-songwriter Rob Thomas and his wife Marisol established(…)
The BCSP has designed a simple adoption contract. We have a great selection of quality pets and prices for their adoption are very reasonable. Our Pets
Donations of any amount are most appreciated and all proceeds go toward the care and medical needs of pets we care for, and seek loving homes for. Donate
We are always in need of supplies and welcome donations that help make pets in our care more comfortable! Wish List
When you support our partners, you support BCSP! Please show your appreciation of their sacrifices which have helped us in our efforts.
Volunteers in the community willing to foster animals until permanent homes can be found are the best resource we have! These unpaid heroes take pets into their homes and provide care and a loving environment for absolutely no monetary gain.
The volunteers who pick up abandoned animals and care for them, or transport dogs to new homes, vets or foster care, are not paid for their time, gas or mileage. They are true humanitarians who need your support!
