Rescue Stories
12/28/20- A truck driver called this morning to say he just saw three little puppies get dumped on the side of the road, and they look so scared, lost, and hairless. We searched the area and finally found these three sad little babies behind a dumpster, shaking from the cold and bleeding from open mangy wounds. These poor babies broke our hearts. These babies are just so miserable. They're scared and they're hurting after being dumped this morning, but we will do everything possible to…
Stray Rescue is a unique place. First, we rescue from the streets. Dogs and cats who have seen the worst of life - they've been beat up, they're starving, they've experienced abandonment and betrayal. Most come in with heartworms, and many are injured. In addition, we have developed a reputation; not that we are just no-kill, but that we won't give up on a soul, no matter the cost or time it takes to help them heal. If they have a chance to heal and…
2020: More Lives Saved than Ever Before As we begin to look back and reflect on this year, it is one like no other. It threw us all a curve ball no one could ever have anticipated, and everyone tried to adapt the best they could. No matter how hard it was or how much heartbreak your family may have endured, one thing is a constant with everyone: Family and friends are more important than ever. And for us, we have never been more grateful.…
December 3rd: Some rescues are pretty straightforward, some can take weeks and some can actually take years. That’s how long it took for us to rescue Mummy. She was part of a pack that we have been tracking for many years, and we would pull litter after litter of puppies from them when we could find them. We tried many ways to rescue Mummy – and even tried trapping her by baiting a trap with her puppies – but nothing seemed to work. She was…
Power System + a Sagittal Saw Attachment for the Stray Rescue Clinic This power system would allow our vet clinic to perform surgeries that usually are only available at orthopedic specialty clinics. These surgeries may include TPLO (tibial-plateau-leveling osteotomy), lateral stabilizations of ruptured ACLs, more efficient FHOs, patellar luxation stabilization, hip luxation management, and internal fixation of fractures. Currently, when animals come in with fractures or breaks, the best option for them is leg amputation or a referral to an expensive specialist. With this power…
We just picked up a very bloody boy that we named Drake. We had to earn his trust, but he finally came with us. At this point, not sure what caused the wound - maybe a gunshot, some sort of cut or dog bites? But our vet clinic and trauma center will whatever it takes to get him fixed up! Give here, or you can also use Venmore @stray-rescue
October 17th: Meet Pugsley Addams. This poor baby is covered in puncture wounds, so we believe he was horribly beaten up by another dog. He's in our clinic now getting the emergency treatment he needs - we believe he is septic, he can't maintain his own temperature and his glucose is very low. We're taking blood and will run some tests. In the meantime, we're getting him started on fluids, pain meds, and antibiotics. Keep this guy in your heart, he needs the strength. October…
“Our Hearts are Bigger than our Budget” What a year 2020 has shaped up to be. Where do I begin? This year has thrown us all a curve ball that no one could have ever anticipated, and we have all tried to adapt the best way we know how. Life has slowed down, giving us a chance to reflect on what’s most important in our lives and in our hearts. We’re all doing what we can to check in with our friends, family and neighbors…
Endowment funds are an important tool in ensuring our long-term viability and financial security. By creating a steady, long-term income source, endowment funds help us weather the financial highs and lows that can impact fulfilling our mission and daily operations. And they are a reassurance to you that your contributions will make an impact for years to come! Our goal is to secure $5 million in our endowment fund by 2025 so we can continue to grow, save lives and be the leader in animal…
