Thor is a five-month-old Husky puppy and was recently rescued from the Miami Dade County Shelter. Based on our specialist’s examination, Thor has a spinal condition that is preventing him from being able to walk. He is starting immediate intense rehabilitation and will need rehab for 30+ days to see if we can increase his quality of life and his mobility.
Meet our Salty Dog for the month of September, Shadow. Shadow a 3-year-old German Shepherd who was pulled from the County Miami Dade shelter after an urgent plea was sent out about euthanizing her. Poor Shadow had a broken leg, a mammary tumor, and a tooth with an exposed nerve. She also needs to be spayed after the urgent surgeries are performed. Despite all this pain & neglect, the rescue who transported her from the shelter (SHARE) said she is very sweet and could tell from the first time they save her that she deserved a second chance at life.

Meet our Salty Dog of the month for August. Wylie is a 9-month old puppy that was thrown out of a car window by his former owner while driving. He will need extensive surgery to correct his legs and hips.
Venus is a Husky puppy that was surrendered by her previous owners. When she arrived to our partner animal shelter, she was extremely emaciated and malnourished. In addition, she required emergency pneumothorax surgery to remove a part of her lung. Being given up to a shelter, arriving at the rescue, and immediately undergoing major open chest surgery has been extremely overwhelming for her, but this extremely sweet girl is handling such an awful situation with grace as she recovers at her foster parents’ home.
We rescued this poor pitbull dog that throughout her life was used as a breading machine and for dog fighting. The previous “owner” came to my clinic to euthanize her because she wasn’t useful anymore. In his words “she was just a problem he wanted to get rid of.”

The funds raised will pay for Lea’s orthopedic surgery and physical therapy as well as Bianca’s physical therapy, laser treatments and possible amputation. Bianca has begun laser treatment and Lea starts pre-operative physical therapy next week. Both girls will be in Foster homes before and after surgery (after being released from the hospital). Our ultimate goal is to place them both in an adoptive home and we would love for them to stay together!
A few weeks ago, a foster picked up Joel in a pool of his own blood. He had been hit by a car and left to die. She took him to hospital where they had to partially amputate his tail and ear due to it being dead-tissue.
