Neglected dogs update on momma and baby. This poor momma dog and her puppy were brought in to be euthanized by a local vet because they have demodex mange. All of the puppies in the litter died except this guy. The owners dumped motor oil on them to try and fix the problem which resulted in even more medical issues and burns on their skin. Momma dog left a trail of blood when she was brought in because her paws and body were so bloody from scabbing with the severe skin issues.
They are safely in a temporary foster home thanks to Stokes County Humane Society coming to their rescue and offering to foster them for us. Thanks to everyone’s generosity we were able to get them started on basic medications for their skin, momma got pain medication and they are beginning their journey to recovery.
We will continue to fund raise for these wonderful 2 dogs and contribute towards their care, vet bills and anything else they need. Their path to recovery may be a long one but they are doing great. Momma is starting to be friendly now and playful, and puppy is one happy fella!

In case you missed it here is the link for the Rachel Ray show some of our pups were featured on this week! We recognized several of our babies we have all worked to rescue together from high kill shelters in NC and sent to North Shore Animal League America!
Charley is a 4 month old lab mix puppy that came into a high kill shelter a few days ago after being hit by a car. We do not know what is wrong with her, and she has not been seen by a vet. We are hoping to rescue her ASAP and get her to our veterinarian to diagnose her and do xrays. She can get up and go to the bathroom, but is in alot of pain and has a hard time trying to stand.
Please consider helping us with her, we are unsure what her medical bills will cost us, but thought she was an extra cute pup that deserved a chance. More videos to come!
