I wanted to let the village know that even though all of us are swamped with the details of this weekends festivities, and all of our volunteers are completely occupied with working here in town it doesn't mean that we aren't rescuing dogs.
Right this very minute we are working on safely securing 8 or 9 adult Frenchie mamas from a mill auction, one 8 year old male Frenchie who was literally begging to get out of there. One tiny English Bulldog with a bad eye. Presumably 4 of these mamas are pregnant, of course you know how that goes.
We've got our ace in the hole with our anonymous rescue friend who has bid for us before who is there now doing everything she can to bring these dogs to safety.
I will know more tonight but I wanted to put this info out there and ask you if you can and wouldn't mind sending a bit of cash to go toward their rescue we would greatly appreciate it.
Donations can be made on the website anytime and can be found here.

I just donated $200 which will turn into $400 with my company match. Hopefully that will help. Much love to you all at the Ranch!💕
How exciting, I immediately began praying for LSDR's representative at the puppy mill auction. God bless the puppy mill dogs. Talk about multitasking, juggling this weekends events and puppy mill auction rescues. Can't wait to meet the lastest new rescues from puppy mill hell. Also made a little donation.
this is such a mixed feelings picture...how awful and sad that that many babies have been put through mills....but what a joyous and happy picture because you have rescued and given love to those that would have never known love.
I am praying you will be able to get all 9 of them out of there so they will be given a chance at a life they deserve. Go get them. They need to be loved. Sending a small donation as I know every little bit helps.
Hey yall!! I am looking for a new addition to our family! I recently lost my best friend this past spring of 16 years.. i was thinking about getting a pup thru a Veterans program that offers emotional support rescue pups.. BUT my heart is set on a frenchie they are so loving and most likely love to snuggle. I am a native Texan but currently live in TN. I would love to have someone pair me with a pup.
This is wonderful! Can't wait to meet these precious souls. I made a small donation (and wish it could be ever so much more). Good luck 🐾💕🐾
Yay! So excited to read that a rescue is in the works. Can't wait to see the new members to the LSDR family. Donation made.
I do not have much to give right now, but praying for anonymous person doing the hard work. God bring those sweet furbabies to safety.
Wow so exciting. The village that never sleeps. Thank you for arranging this even with how crazy busy this weekend is for everyone.
Done...Save some more Mill Mama's...can't wait for the pictures and stories.
Just donated! Good luck with getting as many rescues as you can!! 🐾❤️🐾
Donating via PayPal. Thank you for saving them!
Is this the tags of all the dogs rescued this year so far?
Oh my gosh I just realized what this picture is!! ❤️🙏🏻
Do you work with the National Mill Dog Rescue out of Colorado?
I'm praying that they all get freed and out of that!
Will definitely donate when I get home tonight
God Bless the rescue mission. Happily donated <3
We here who are not able to participate in the weekend's activities in person can now help with other important activities at Lone Star - donation sent💕💕💕
Thank you so much for all your hard work to save all the babies you have saved and will save in the future
Just wondering... is there a way to set up a recurring monthly donation?
Donated and praying for a successful outcome.
#NamesNotNumbers. Thanks for all you do
Donation on the way!!
Praying for success!!!
Put a fork in me, she's chewed the stairs to the bed up and with that has cemented in my head that she will always be in a crate from here on out. ... See MoreSee Less
I feel compelled to preemptively start the FREE ED movement 🤣
Oh that’s a bit harsh!! Plus I’m sure Ed will find a way to chew her way out of any crate! ❤️🐾❤️ #freeEd
There seems to be a lot of crate judgement going on. Let's not forget that sometimes that is the best and healthiest option for the dog.
Oh no not Ed she's not gonna do well in a crate u can't crate her shes too cute for that but seriously she's not gonna do good in that
Oh no, Ed! You are driving your mama nuts! I cannot imagine what those steps said to you, but you have to pick your battles, baby girl, otherwise you will end up in the puppy pokey!
Oh please don't crate Ed. Out of 5 schnauzers we had one chewer but he out grew when we figured out he felt like he wasn't getting enough attention. Once we adjusted a few things the dog suddenly stopped chewing and never did again. Not sure what Ed' s thing is but there is an anxiety or insecurity there.
No not Ed, not free spirit, trash talk avenger, shampoo lover Ed!!! No, you will warp her precious personality. Couldn't you just leave her in the office when you are going to be away for awhile? Then whoever is working in the office can keep her company.
Uh-oh! Extra naughty Ed! But why are so many people upset about crating? Crating shouldn’t be thought of as punishment. In fact, a lot of dogs, if introduced properly to a crate, feel more secure there when their people aren’t around.
Oh Ed you sure give mama a run for her money... you won’t like the crate at all. Daddy is right you sure are cute.
#freeEd #FreeEd #too_cute_4bars Mama I need more fiber in my diet! ... It was Tater, it hurt his little toesies!... Self defense?
OK she does not look guilty ! I think she was set up yet again ! Is there proof other than just the picture ? Anyone could have damaged the steps and then put her there ! INNOCENT I tell you !
I don't remember her chewing anything except buckets and potatoes before. Did those stairs make big mistake and talk smack to her today? Im sure she won't do it again, Mama. ❤❤
She seems like she's causing a lot of trouble so just say the word and I'll be on my way from TN to get her😂😂😂I've got a lot of buckets that she could straighten out😍
Animals need boundaries like kids/adults do! It’s like not having stop signs or stop lights on busy streets! Ed needs a boundary and 8m sure she’ll have plenty to do in a crate.
Oh no. Well, you have to do what you have to do. I am surprised she hasn't chewed the furniture or cabinets, this is probably the precursor.
You can send her to me 😁 she'll have all the buckets she can handle ❤ I would adopt but I have a tiny yard and a cranky lil terrier I rescued.
My bully does the same thing when we leave😉 I put her in the crate when we leave now and she’s learned to love the crate.
Please don’t put that sweetheart in a crate! Freedom for Ed❤️❤️. You should have had a bucket in the bedroom. 😜
Oh Ma'am. The Queen will surely have something to say about the access to her sleeping quarters becoming a favorite chew toy 😜
Crate training is always acceptable but not a life in a crate. Seriously need to rethink your options. Someone needs to adopt this beauty.
Personally I'm fairly impressed with her "no shame in my chewing game" look LoL
Oh and what are you trying to tell your mama what are you missing in your diet. Lol . Sorry I know it's not funny but it is
I have a redwood staircase to upper deck all chewed up. At some point, I guess we’ll fix it. Arghhhh
Oh Momma. She's having anxiety Knowing you are going to be gone for the evening. She doesn't want you to leave her.
Oh Baby girl. did you not get enough attention what with all the gala goodness going on???? Mama not too bad
Lone Star Dog Ranch added 3 new photos.

Thankfully I had my Ma and my friend Judy to help me get these all finished and packaged up for the guests tomorrow.
Whew.... ... See MoreSee Less
I don't suppose you'd share your recipe been watching you make these with my mouth watering over the last year for special occasions. Lol. Have a fantastic weekend
I was lucky enough to win a batch of cookies during the last auction..simply delicious! I've never been able to bake something with such great texture. Everything about them was perfection!
Wonder if any of the "friends" from your mama's house jumped in her suitcase for a little vacation to see Laura again?
So good to see Ma!!! Please tell her I said hello. I really need to come get some cookies 25 years is to long without them lol
What a wonderful thing to be able to bake with family and friends for a good cause. A amazing blessing.
You and your family and friends are an inspiration. In a time that is full of turmoil and hate.
Many hands make light work.
This explains poor Ed eating the stairs. She wanted cookies!
You weren’t kidding when you said you had to make cookies! They look awesome 😊
Oh, I wish I was there to help!
Oooo I'd come just for the cookies!
So awesome!!! Hope all the events are fabulous and tons of $$$$ is raised!!!!
Hard to resist not eating them!!
Please auction off the recipes next auction :)
Ate you going to have another cookie auction anytime soon?
They look delightful ... i love home made cookies 😍
Best cookies ever!!! Can’t wait
Good Job Gals. They look sooooo good.
Hi Renee’s Ma!!!😊
Looks amazing and delicious!!! 💜🍪💜🍪💜
Mmmmmm.....send some to PA?
Who says we have to be clean for the Gala anyway?? ... See MoreSee Less
I knew it, there would be some spa activity going on, and some canine perfume, doggie breath mints, and all sorts of brushing on the toes and cheek dimples...these babies are gonna be sparkling , kissing, clean and will be the most kissed dogs on the planet...lololo
Tater appears to be mystified or troubled that he haffa be shampooed with the sassy French girls...and the girls are seriously questioning Mama...do you think we are really needing this spa today???
Do you want to go looking like dusty ole dawgs??? Mam would be shamed if you showed up like that. So get nice & shiny clean, then go & say "Hey" to everyone.
Poor tater look at him... he’s thinking “ darn it mama why do I always have to take a bath with the girls!?”
Oh how sweet. But they are always clean 24/7 . But it would not matter people would still want to kiss them clean or dirty.
Tater looks like he has a reindeer rack!
Looking forward to seeing the three of you tonight!
You want to get lots of kisses, don't you?
I just love those faces lol
You’re going to get lots and lots of kisses!!!!
Tater always get stuck with the ladies in the shower ;)
I mean, they are just gonna SLOBBER us up with KISSES!
NOT a group of happy campers!
Who is that Big Pretty Girl in between Bea and Tater?? <3 <3
Rub a dub dub, 3 doggies in the tub
Just think how pretty you will look.
"Mama, no one said anything about baths. Can we cancel our RSVPs?"
Hey guys...won't be so bad and you will get all the hugs and kisses.
Isn't Ed going? Who and what army is going to stay back and watch her?
I don’t care!! I’ll take you guys anyway but poopy!!❤️❤️
I wanna smooch all those faces!
Think you can keep those 3 clean long enough for the gala?
" O " this is sooo royal. Just wait, a carriage might appear, to pick all of you up...🎃🐕
Scrub a dub dub, I see cute puppies in the tub ❤️❤️
Do not get the Gremlins wet!!
I'm not sure our new security detail is gonna work out.. ... See MoreSee Less
Yeah, the two that are watching don't look like they would be very fast to chase an intruder and the leggy black dog is kinda off in his own world!!!
I might be just a little intimidated. After all there are 2 bullies and the other one is tall. He might be the ring leader. lol
Two bullies and a butt!...made me laugh!
“Did she say ‘work out’? Does she think I’m fat?”
It wouldn't keep me out! I'd go in and sit in the middle of everyone and cuddle babies! ❤️
if you can get the evil-doers to trip over those two who are on watch, that might work.
There is no problem that the right amount of cookies cannot solve.
They are just in it for the donuts lol
Gotta watch the rear too!
Why? I make policy of only hiring security guards who always have their tongues hanging out😂
What do you mean we certainly can bring the beef. the butt one will chase and we will watch.
lmao...I think you need Kilo and Scratches for Security :D
If anybody gets out of line, they can sit on them until the law gets there.
Ykes...it appears someone is making a statement...?
More like ...”they need to workout”! They look like total cuddle bugs.
I really did just bust out in a good belly laugh! I was inspired 😍
Wow, that’s one over weigh dog....or should I say 2....
Sandy Simpson look how big they are. Love it.
No bucket, no work😜
Well, I feel safer.
Hmmm looks like a Motley Crew to me! ❤️🐾😉🐾❤️
Omgee! The one turned around! 😂
That picture is epic
