who survived the fire Dec 8, 2001 and lost her life Jan 25, 2006
to the Blind Shep
was dumped by backyard breeders and slipped through the rescue cracks
and was "euthanized" at a Los Angeles Shelter.
we were trying to network the Blind Shep and arrange for a rescue
group to pull her from the shelter she was euthanized, it all happened
in less than 24 hours. Generally it takes 48 hours to coordinate
a rescue through the email rescue network. This includes finding
a rescue group, and raising the "bail" money to get the
animal out of the shelter and finding someone to go to the shelter
(with a rescue card, or find someone with a card which offers discounts
to rescuers) and pay for and transport the animal. While I sent
out the email with the pictures at around 9PM one evening the next
day before 4PM she was dead, and a rescue group HAD offered to take
her but that information did NOT get to the shelter in time to stop
euthanasia. She was about 4 months old and most likely a purebred
ACT holding her had tears in his eyes when he told me about her.
HE named her Princess.
thought this pit pup which looked like it had acid burns on its
back and was extremely emaciated, was going to end up like the blind
shep. As I just happened to snap a couple of pics. And I just happened
to inquire at the VERY FULL Lancaster, CA where they have SEVEN
and EIGHT dogs per cage. The Fabulous ACT (animal control technitian)
LUCY, looked up the dog and asked me if I wanted to place a "hold"
I said yes and thought I would network out the photo. Lucy said
wait a minute as she looked into her computer file. She left the
room and came back. Apparently my inquiry stopped in the tracks
this dogs euthanasia. And Knowing what I did about the Shep pup
and how long it took to network. I asked for 48 hours. This pup
is now with Karma Rescue her name is now WILMA, you can see current
pics on their website.
above to look at MORE rescued animals needing adoption!
This is Clementine
when she was adopted.
Clem came to
us from the shelter in August with PARVO (August is peek season
Clinic got her back on her feet. Cured her of PARVO.
This is the
Parvo room at Affordable. You MUST step in bleach before and after
entering the room. Clem is on the bottom left.
If you would
like to make a donation to Clem's Bill,
we STILL have
a few hundred dollars of a balance
at TWO vets
for her care (after she had Parvo she got a bad case of Kennel Cough.)
a donation through our donation page on PAYPAL.
came from the So LA shelter with a severly broken foot.
now lives in Santa Barbara, and does not even have a limp!
bailed her along with Foo Man Choo on the same day with the last
$70 in my pocket.
Foo Man Choo
is Foo Man Choo.
called him that because he had NO hair except the foo man on his
was NOT sick, just poor nutrition and care.
was turned in by a girl and her mother. The girl was crying, so
observers say. Obviously I have no idea what lead this 5yr old +
dog to lose all its hair or why the family did not want to or think
it was treatable.
dog would have NEVER been seen by the public. An ACT at the shelter
pointed him out and I took him, even though I knew I would have
to network a rescue for him. He was about 5 pounds and with my 70
lb Homer and Penny and Schlimie I felt one scoop with their nose
in play could be the end of Foo Man.
is Foo Man (has a new name) today. WITH HAIR.
has another small dog and a cat as siblings now. His new family
loves and adores him.
thank you to Ellen of Little
Big Dog Rescue for taking care and finding a great loving home
for him! (She named him Jasper!)
Bullet and his Dad IRA
Bullet, who lives near me with his dad out for a walk.
a quick snapshot.
Shep aka Nelson aka Boogie
taken on by Ariel Rescue in Orange County.
been neutered and had complications, thankfully Ariel Rescue had
a vet able to handle the medical issues.
still has quite a bill at Ariel Rescue, so if you can make a donation
towards Sheps bill
lived at a vets for TWO Years and finally they let me find a great
home for her!
Roxie's got Moxy!
Roxie was born
in a field in Los Angeles. She had nine siblings 24 hours later
all but three had died. 24 hours after than I received Roxie and
two of her siblings which were clearly dying. While we attempted
to bottle feed them all, only Roxie survived.
Roxie at 3 weeks.
is exhausting, every two hours feeding and cleaning for two or three
weeks. After four weeks she can be weaned from bottle feeding milk
to mush (wet food and milk), then soon to hard food.
Roxie at 8 weeks,
was adopted and plays with a laberdoodle and her roommates Golden.
aka Wee Willy Winkie
owners did not want him if he was to lose his eye. His eye was damaged
when a large dog bit him.
the family spent over a thousand dollars to save the eye. They decided
to give him to the vet, who called me to take him, get his eye removed
and find him a new home.
This is Wee
Willy Winkie today.
Less one eye
but a bunch of fun.
Thank you to
donations his surgery was immediate, and thanks to
