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.
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.
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.
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!
