"We keep Saphire in the front office to keep a watchful eye on her," says Nancy Benevento-Brown of ISHAS "she loves her comfortable plush bed, fresh unlimited water and good food which includes eating 3-4 times a day with high nutrition diet and supplements." "I am often asked why do I restore and save the life of an animal who is clearly at death's door," says Benevento-Brown "and my answer is and will always be 'because she managed to wag her tail when petted.' That alone was a sign to me. She communicated forgiveness to humans who did this to her and Saphire asked me for help with that tail wag." "This is not the first case like this," says Benevento-Brown " my heart tells me that I must try to give comfort and love to an animal that another human threw away. We as a team at this sanctuary believe every animal deserves a chance and we are giving her that chance. We do have a long road ahead to a full recovery and she may not ever fully recover, but I am betting she will manage to wag her tail no matter what." Any and all donations towards helping Saphire or any other animals at the sanctuary will be greatly appreciated.

Working with an intermediary who has contacts at "puppy mills" in Holmes County, the shelter rescued 12 dogs on Jan. 5 and 11 dogs on Saturday, said Nancy Benevento-Brown, CEO of Island Safe Harbor.
Island Safe Harbor felt it had little choice but to take the dogs in, Benevento-Brown said.
"If we don't take these dogs, they will be destroyed and it will not be a pretty death because they shoot them," she said. "We've got documentation to this effect from the intermediary."
Many of the dogs have hernias from being used for breeding over and over again, she said.
She said the shelter doesn't take in dogs just because an owner is tired of them.
"I want to stress that we're not a dumping ground," she said.
The sanctuary's efforts have strained the shelter's ability to rescue any more dogs, said Benevento-Brown, founder of Island Safe Harbor.

"I really want to show we are working together for the benefit of the animals," said Nancy Benevento-Brown, founder and CEO of Island Safe Harbor, located on State Road across from Erie-Ottawa Regional Airport.
It found homes for about 90 animals last year, but adopted out 71 of them in the last few weeks of 2012, after a much-publicized series of rescues of dogs from "puppy mills" in Holmes County, Benevento-Brown said.
After reading about the rescues, "people wanted to be a part of the solution," Benevento-Brown said.
"Nancy sent out a report she really needs collars," Hargreaves said.
Benevento-Brown said she took some heat from supporters who believe that Erie County's Humane Society euthanizes animals when it runs out of space. That's a bad rap, Benevento-Brown said - the Humane Society only euthanizes animals when it's medically necessary.

It had not been aggressive before, said Nancy Benevento-Brown, Safe Harbor's CEO.
