Here is a very urgent situation that we could use some help with immediately. The lives of ELEVEN dogs are at huge risk.

654e2fa6-a936-462a-85b3-3251ff866dab-236x300We found this precious girl on the road. We could tell she was nursing so we just couldn’t take her without her puppies. She took us on a long walk to find her 10 puppies. They have an “owner” but they are all in a very dangerous situation. We tried to reason with the owner, with no luck. He thinks he can sell her puppies for $80 each. We offered $200 to take mama and puppies. He refused. We are still working hard on this but we think the answer is going to be enough money to satisfy him. After we get them, we will have the big expense of caring for 10 puppies and their mama. *Please let us know if you might be able to foster once (if) we rescue these precious souls*  and please consider donating to save them.

Here are some of our lovely adoptable’s in need:

36b91be8-5b20-4fbc-82a7-17faaec1d709-300x200Buddy was pulled from the San Antonio Shelter just minutes away from death. Sadly, he had been attacked by large dogs at the shelter in March, and his leg was severely broken. He was taken into foster care with pain meds. Some angels at Blanco Veterinary Clinic in Blanco, TX, VERY kindly operated on Buddy and fixed his leg at a MUCH reduced cost. We need to raise $560 to cover this surgery. 
8f38f134-9743-457d-b0d2-42bc081346b6-300x199Shanti has been with us for almost FOUR HUNDRED DAYS! She was found dumped and covered in mange. She is healthy and one of the happiest dogs we have ever met. She is quiet and loving and perfect with all people. She also seems to be fantastic with dogs. IT’S SHANTI’S TURN!! ♥

He is named after a very special person who has done a great deal to help us with adoption events and promotion. Thank you Trevor at Healthy Pet ! Trevor was pulled from a kill shelter and is now ready to have the life he deserves.

George promises the BEST good morning hugs ever! He has also been with us a very long time. He has watched too many dogs come and head out to their forever homes. George wants to go HOME.
