About Us
About Our Rescue

We are a small private all breed rescue.  We receive our animals
from high kill shelters, strays and owner surrenders.  We are
dedicated to saving one dog at a time and getting that dog happy,
healthy and ready to find that special forever home.  

Meet the Humans

Co-Founder:  Carolyn Hadley
I have been involved in rescue for several years now, mostly in the
capacity of a volunteer at local kill shelters working to find and
secure rescue for the animals.  And of course I have been
dragging home strays since I could walk I think.  I have a great
passion for animals  and dedicate my time to helping those in
need.  A few months ago I made the decision along with my best
friend and "Paw"tner in crime Susan Turturice to open our own
rescue to be able to help even more animals, so Something
Special Castaways was born.  

Co-Founder:  Susan Turturice
Susan has been involved with rescue for many years now.  She
has a passion and love like no other for our senior labby babies.  
Susan is a phenomenal Transport Coordinator and I can honestly
say that I doubt there is any place in the United States that she
couldn't set up a transport to or from.  She is an advocate for dogs
everywhere and has a heart as big as the world.  Susan and I
started working together a few years ago when she stepped up to
help transport 3 senior labs from a high kill shelter to a senior dog
rescue.  From that point on we have been best of friends and have
worked sometimes endlessly to help get dogs from all over into
safe rescues and forever homes.
