Current Dogs in Medical Care

Precious Lexi

Furever Friend

Ongoing Medical

Lexi was surrendered to the local shelter in July of 2019 by the only family she had known since she was 8 weeks old because the could no longer care for her.

 

She was rescued on October 4, 2019.  Her very advanced heartworms have been staged and we are treating her as carefully as possible.  Lexi's cough has gotten better since we began treating her and the swelling on her abdomen has gone down but we still have a long way to go.

 

We were able to obtain records from her previous owner that shows she has had heartworms at a minimum of 4.5 years

Lexi will be with us the rest of her days and we will do everything we an for her so please check back for updates!

Kevin

Heartworm Treatment

Kevin was a stray who took several weeks to earn his trust.

He finally came around and allowed his foster family to catch him and take him home.

No one came looking for the big guy.  He has since been neutered, chipped and vaccinated.  Unfortunately he tested positive for heartworms.

He has completed his 30 days of oral medications and will be going for his heartworm injections early April.

 

Kevin will be ready for a home of his own after his 30 days of crate rest following completion of treatment!

Toast aka Coco

Furever Friend

Ongoing Medical

Coco, now known as Toast, was surrendered to the shelter by her previous humans at 13 years of age.  She was very scared there and on top of that, she had two large mammary tumors.

She was rescued and taken to the vet.  Her tumors were found to be cancerous and need to be removed.  She has the two large tumors, as well as several smaller, marble like tumors along both sides of her belly.  

Her first surgery is scheduled for April 1st.  They will go in, spay and remove all the tumors along one side.  Once she heals fro that, they will go in and remove the remaining tumors along the other other side.

Because of her age and medical needs, Toast will be in our program the remainder of her life.

Archie

Benny

Muscle Damage &

Heartworm Treatment

Angel was struck by a vehicle and ended up in the city shelter.  The vet on staff believed he had a broke leg and put it in a splint.  He sat in the shelter for several weeks before being rescued.  He was taken to the vet and xrays revealed he did NOT have a broken bone, worse, muscle damage that will either repair or wont.  It was also discovered he is heartworm positive.  Angel is only guessed to be about 2 years.  What a rough start to life!

UPDATE: Benny had TPLO surgery mid March and should be able to begin heartworm treatment mid to late April if there are no other complications.

Heartworm Treatment

Archie was chained by that disgusting collar in the back yard where he called home.  He often got out to play with the neighborhood kids and other dogs, but always ended right back there.

His humans wanted a mean dog, a guard dog, and one that their friends would all think was a "bad ass"  They tried to make Archie mean but all he wanted to do was love.  Once they realized he would not ever be that mean intimidating dog they were trying to turn him into, they let him loose and locked the gate behind them.

He showed up at the neighbors house covered in bite wounds, that we can only hope was from another stray dog.  The neighbor took Archie home and they told her they let him out on purpose, didn't want him back and didn't care what happened to him.

His wounds have been treated and a drain was put in his leg to relieve the pressure of all the fluids from his injuries.  Archie tested posititve for heartworms and will begin treatment mid April.
