About the Author
- Martha Townley currently works as a clinical social worker and is a longtime volunteer for the National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network (NBRAN). This organization provides foster care and rehabilitation for rescued dogs who have suffered abandonment, neglect, or abuse in the hope of adopting them into permanent homes. Her work as both a therapist and a NBRAN volunteer has provided Martha with a unique insight into the power of human-canine relationships. Her observations are reflected in the novel The Least of These, and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to NBRAN to help defray the steep costs that rescue missions face.
Make a Difference in the Life of an Adoptable Dog!
Thundershirts are helping shelters and rescue groups across the country to manage the dogs they receive with anxiety, fear and excitement issues. Your Thundershirt Donation will be put to excellent use helping to transition one of our wonderful dogs back to a forever home.
The dogs rescued from LA this summer are doing well. We have several out in foster care now and are available for adoption. Check out Michigan Ronnie! He’s adorable! Ryan, a senior boy and the three puppies we had had have all been adopted.
We still have dogs in boarding undergoing heartworm treatment and they are doing well. Most of the dogs had ear infections and other health issues, and thanks to the vets working with our foster homes, and the fantastic group of veterinarians and vet students at the University of Pennsylvania, the dogs are well on their way to healing and living the life they deserve.
None of the females we rescued were pregnant. What mimicked pregnancy turned out to be some pretty big intestinal worm loads. The females are all doing fine in foster homes and are undergoing heartworm treatment. Some of the pups are still skittish, but most are very well adjusted dogs.
Keep checking the available for adoption link and this page for updates. Thank you for following our Magnolia Brittany rescue efforts!

NBRAN Has TWO Adoption Programs
Just for Our Senior Dogs
The NBRAN Seniors to Seniors Program is available for senior applicants who are age 60 or older interested in adopting a senior Brittany- 9 years or older. The State Coordinator who is responsible for the dog will discuss the adoption donation with you.
If you're not a senior, but are interested in a senior dog, we also have a program for you! Our ADOPT A SENIOR program goal is to find our senior dogs loving homes. Your state coordinator can give you all the details about our Adopt a Senior program. Senior Brittanys make loving companions- without all the crazy Brittany energy of younger dogs.
Senior Britts are the best!

Foster homes are our lifeline to saving dogs. We have opportunities for fostering in every state and Canadian Province. Fostering not only helps the dogs, but blesses the humans involved too. Knowing that you are helping a Brittany find a forever loving home is a great feeling! If you can foster please complete a volunteer application under the Help the Dogs button on our menu. If you prefer, call Susan Spaid at 814-771-6720 or e-mail at Brittsrgr8@gmail.com or Gaye Bricker at 330-673-2702 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adopting a pet pays you back ten fold. If you are not able to adopt, volunteers are always needed to help transport or foster a pet. You may also choose to donate to this effort on our Donate Now page. All donations are tax deductible!
Once called "the Brittany Spaniel," the AKC has officially changed their breed name to "the American Brittany." A Brittany retains a puppy-like quality in their personality and are gentle, clownish, active dogs. They are great family dogs.
The number of dogs available for adoption varies from month to month.
