Update On Lucky- Our Neglect Issue Puppy that is healing!

Posted on Updated on

Lucky is doing GREAT! He is one smart cookie, he has discovered how to open just about any door in our house and insists on getting to hang out on our back porch vs. our designated laundry room we have for him. He is good off leash, already  potty trained (he hasn’t had one accident in the house), and he is a respectful boy who doesn’t chew on anything either. He just loves his meal times, play times with our dogs and getting lots of love and affection. He is so people oriented he is absolutely loving getting to be a part of our house!

He is starting on a special diet that is vegetable based that will help with his internal organs and to build his immune system. He is getting 3 medications 2x a day and ivermectin everyday. He is also getting medicated baths 2x a week and we are noticing his hair growing back in slowly but surely every day. We have had horse owners tell us to use a product called MTG that helps stimulate hair growth so we are discussing that with our vets. Now that Lucky is feeling better I can take him into to get his first set of puppy shots, rabies and bordatella.

Thanks to everyones dontations we were able to pay for his special shampoo and get him the dog food he needs, and get him up to date on shots, heartworm and flea prevention! We also need to get him neutered and microchipped when he feels up to it!

He is still sore when he walks with his paws but the swelling is going down slowly. We will continue updating everyone on Luckys progress and journey to finding his forever home :) Donations can be made towards Luckys care at  http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/lucky-s-fund-help-lucky-with-his-path-to-recovery-/241330#.VCn9ne2dI8U.facebook

Smithfield NC Hosts Our NSALA Transport! 67 More Dogs and Puppies Rescued From Shelters in NC

Posted on Updated on

A Big Thank you to Johnston County Animal Control in Smithfield NC for hosting our transport this week. 67 lucky dogs and puppies were rescued in NC and are on their way to finding their forever homes. We had dogs from Stokes, Wilkes, Caldwell, and Yadkin county, and had fosters in several more areas all working together. We have the best volunteers that helped us walk and take care of all the dogs in Boone in the rain, and Darwin k9s wonderful crew helped us at Mitchell Mill Animal Hospital from 10-1am to get everybody taken care of Tuesday evening! We also had dog walkers then showed up at 6am to help me on Wednesday before the mobile unit arrived in Smithfield!  Alexia took a time lapsed video of us taking care of the pups Tuesday evening we wanted to share. Thanks to everyone involved another successful transport! Our next trip is 10/20-10/22!

Lucky is a 4 month old puppy that was found  on the side of the road almost dead. He was rushed to the vets office and they determined he had a severe case of mange and needed immediate medical attention. PARTNERS! Canines has agreed to take Lucky into their program and give him the love and TLC he needs to get better. We look forward to sharing his progress with donors and to seeing him get healthy and find a forever home. Any donations made will go directly to his vet care he will need! – See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/lucky-s-fund-help-lucky-with-his-path-to-recovery-/241330#.VCn9ne2dI8U.facebook

Happy Tails from North Shore Animal League- Bella

Posted on Updated on

Bella at the shelter

bella at NSALA available for adoption Bella in her new home! Bella in her new home! Bella in her new home!

 

We rescued Bella from a high kill gassing shelter earlier this month in WNC. Bella’s owner had to turn her in because she was having medical issues and couldn’t care for a pet. She was very upset to lose her but had no choice, and Bella was in danger of being put to sleep because of high numbers coming in the shelter that week.

We rescued Bella and sent her to North Shore Animal League America in NY on one of our High Country Muttigree Express Transports. We recently heard from her adopter in NY, who says she is an amazing dog. She is pee pad trained, loves everyone and is just an absolute delight in their home.

We are so glad to hear Bella found her forever home. Thanks so much to those of you that are a part of our transports, Bella’s life and so many more are saved with our trips!
