Starving for food and love - Meet Bingham Hasn't anyone EVER, in your whole life, ever shown you love? Bingham is 8+ years old. Yes, he's been starving to death. He was so thirsty, he drank water for almost 10 minutes straight...but he's also starved for love and attention. He let everyone who came to meet him give him a kiss. We drew blood for testing and he was so kind and patient while we did all our poking. He is anemic due to malnutrition…
Meet Gherkin and Frankie Girl We're known as the organization that will stop at nothing to give these precious souls the second chance they deserve; that reputation exists because of amazing and compassionate donors like you who believe in our mission. Lately we've taken in some horrible cases, one right after the other, and it's our responsibility to give them a shot at experiencing the beauty of a safe and healthy existence. There are two little broken angels we'd like to introduce to you: First,…
EMERGENCY RESCUE 2/10 Houston, We have a problem Cassady received a horrific call and we can't look away. There are 50 dogs who desperately need our help on a property a few hours from St. Louis. We are planning to head there *Thursday* morning to get them out of this hellish situation. Their owner died and we're told there are dead dogs all over, many of them are being eaten by other starving dogs. Many are pregnant as well. WE ARE BEGGING YOU TO STEP…
The worst embedded collar we have ever seen Imagine you’re a puppy and someone locks a chain around your neck. As months go by and you grow into a young adult, the chain gets tighter and tighter. So tight that it cuts into your skin, causing searing pain that you can never escape from. After awhile, this cruel prison becomes part of you as you try to block out the pain and just survive another day. A call came in that a dog with an…
Meet Danny, skin and bones As the snow and sleet came down in sheets, a couple of Good Samaritans came running into our building with a dog in tow. As he came closer, we gasped. They found him running by himself, so emaciated that his joints had open wounds from not having any fat in his body. As we pet him, he pushed himself against our hand, eager to be touched. He is dangerously thin and malnourished, so will have to be fed several small…
Little dog found in ditch needs help A Good Samaritan truck driver named Odell somehow spotted a little brown and white puppy quivering in a ditch on the side of a road. He wasn't able to stop but made sure to call us immediately. We went to check out the scene and found this little ANGEL! We couldn't tell at first, but sadly our clinic informed us that she has some significant injuries. X-rays indicate a dislocated hip and broken foot. Say a prayer for…
Meet Ann Margaret Everyone, say a prayer for this baby. Good Samaritans said they found her roaming over by IKEA. She is in really bad shape. Emaciated, nails curled over, and she has two giant tumors on each side of her face. She's so old, tired, and broken down. We really hope this little one makes it. We named her Ann Margaret. Tonight she'll be warm and comfortable, with a full baby. Poor sweet angel. Update on Ann Margaret: Some sad news for Ann Margaret,…
There are still stray dogs roaming the streets needing rescue. They are cautious of strangers, finding solitude in abandoned houses, sleeping with one eye open, and scrounging for enough food to keep their empty bellies from rumbling. Donna feeds them every weekend so she can keep tabs on them but also to fill those rumbling bellies. This "feeding of the strays" didn't go as usual, though. Driving around on a dark, chilly morning, she spotted something strange in someone's driveaway. It was a large bird…
Tashi, rescued after MONTHS of suffering Donna has been tracking this poor girl with a prolapsed rectum....for MONTHS! She finally found her today when a man walking by said “yea, I know the dog you’re talking about, she’s been going in there” and pointed to a crumbling, abandoned house. The house was barely still standing and the only way in was across a weak, narrow board. And since that was the only way in, it would be the only way out as well....You'll have to…
Three Broken Legs and a Partridge in a Pear Tree Meet Partridge, a precious little baby in need of some major help! Her x-rays make us ache, her legs are so badly broken. She was most likely hit by a car, but we'll never know for sure. But what we do know is that she is sweet beyond belief, and she's a warrior. We can't help but fall in love with that little underbite. The clock is ticking, and we feel the urgency. If we…
