In memory of Chesney, partner of Lynda Melendez. I witnessed Chesney work her magic with the young women at the Krier Correctional Facility and knew I was seeing a true therapy dog at work. Her instincts about how and how much to interact with each girl on any given visit seemed to be instinctive and spot on. In addition to all the hearts she touched through TASA, maybe her biggest gift was to Lynda and the whole Melendez family.

January 2017

In memory of Missy, devoted dog companion of Dave and Elaine Davis. Missy lived a wonderful life of 16 years with Elaine and Dave. Missy was a rescue, but Missy chose Dave and Elaine, she knew a good thing when she saw it. Being RVers, Missy loved going on trips. In her later years, she lost her eyesight, but that never mattered as she was so trusting that she would go on walks and sniff and enjoy nature as only a Lab can do. She is very missed, her love and spirit will always be with Elaine and Dave along with her doggie family Sabina and Rufus and other family and friends. Missy can see again and is enjoying running, sniffing and all the special doggie treats at the Rainbow Bridge.

Your organization and King Tut, as well as the other therapy animals, add much joy and comfort for people like Mrs. Reyes, a good friend's mom who recently passed. In fact, Mrs. Reyes was pictured hugging King Tut in a 2014 Express-News article! Thanks for all that you do!

As a stray, Treasure had been shot, suffered a severe blow that detached her rib cage, case of heart worms and was in labor when she was taken to the Corpus Christi Animal Control Shelter. Rescued by Rotts'n'Danes Rescue and put on Petfinder where Mari Bailey Villanueva found her and took her home. Treasure was an ambassador for the breed. Mari filled Treasure's life and Treasure filled Mari's life. They visited nursing homes, participated in the local Children's reading program at the school, earned her CD, RN and several herding titles which earned her a place on the Medallion Rottweiler Club Honor Roll. Treasure will be missed as Mari said, "Treasure gave us over 10 1/2 years of gentle, noble Rottweiler life as she overcame the life she had before we adopted her."
