Meet our Salty Dog of the month for June, Dutch. He is an 8-9 year old staffy who was rescued from a terrible situation with the help of police in February. It was discovered he had six foreign objects in his stomach and intestines. It turned out to be a hard-plastic ball which we believe he ate out of starvation when he was with the former owner. The vet said he needed emergency surgery so his rescuers (and now forever family) paid themselves to have the plastic surgically removed.
Meet our Salty Dog of the month for the month of May, Sawyer. We chose Sawyer because the chances of making a full recovery are very high despite his condition! Sawyer has a growing tumor infiltrating his ear canal and causing him severe pain, so he needs surgery to remove it as soon as possible before it potentially spreads.
This month’s Salty Dog hits very close to home. Meet Shiloh – this sweet girl is one of our volunteer’s dogs. Shiloh has suddenly been diagnosed with cancer unexpectedly, and needs the mass removed and chest X-rays to confirm that it has not spread.
Let us introduce our Salty Dog of the month for February – Athena!
Athena was abandoned in a vacant apartment after she was used for breeding and tossed away like trash 6 years ago. Athena found an amazing new home and has come so far but she was recently diagnosed with Osteosarcoma! Athena had to have her leg amputated to relieve her pain from the tumor in her leg. This sweet, loving and playful rescue pup now will need Chemotherapy to overcome this obstacle!
Athena is our Salty Dog of the Month for February and we hope you will help us support her and overcome this hurtle!
Skylar was recently hit by a car that shattered her hip. Following the accident her owners decided that they didn’t want her anymore. Her former owners may have given up on her, but we will not! She is going to also need a lot of rehabilitation once her hip surgery is completed and that is why we are asking for our supporters help in getting her back on her feet. Skylar is a 1 year old 40-pound female Husky and will be up for adoption after her surgery and rehab.
Luna, a little puppy only a few weeks old, was pulled from the highest kill shelter in Texas. She was surrendered covered in fleas & ticks and had a dislocated hind left leg and a fractured left tibia.
You may recognize our Salty Dog for the month of November. Bianca was one of two dogs saved from the streets of Albania in April of this year. We raised funds for her sister’s orthopedic surgeries (Lea) as well as laser therapy for Bianca.
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.
