Good morning. Chacha and Dougie want to wish you a very happy Valentine’s Day! It sure is going to be a good day for her. She’s alive!
She was up and playing with toys this morning. This is just amazing after seeing her two weeks ago – she looked as thought she would die any minute.
But, back to business now. I sure wish the strays, owner surrenders, puppymills, etc. would give us a break. We need a rest – but, they don’t. Dogs just keep coming. When we take a dog in, we have to vet them which includes: spay/neuter, dental cleaning & extractions, heartworm test, rabies, DHPP twice, Bordetella, fecal, deworming and grooming at a minimum. These dogs often have ear infections, eye infections, lumps and bumps, etc which oftens adds several hundreds to their vet bill. It isn’t unusual for us to spend $500-$600 on a dog within a month of intake. This is why we ask for intake sponsorships for these puppers. We need to get them vetted asap!
But, indeed there are dogs out there other than little Chacha and Mudd. Over the past few weeks, while I was so focused on Chacha and Mudd, we have had to intake several additional little fluffers and they need your help! I really don’t like taking them in before we have the funds available for their vetting, but it was completely my fault that I got focused on the two sick dogs and just didn’t have any additional time to ask for help with these. So, here we are. I hope you’ll forgive me and consider helping these cute little puppers.
Above is little Dulche Barker. She is just an adorable little fluffer but has heartworms. We need to get rid of those nasty things so she can go to a forever home. Dulche’s paypal is HERE.
This is little new boy, Scoobie Doo Harris. When a volunteer went to pick up Chaos, who was already sponsored, this one had just been owner surrendered. Owner surrenders just don’t have much time at all at shelters particularly during the week, so I told her to just get him since she was already there. He just needs an intake sponsorship right now. Heartworm status is unknown. Scoobie Doo’s sponsorship link is HERE. Scoobie’s angels include: Patricia Myers.
This hot mess is Marti Davis. He was up for adoption at the Houston SPCA and unfortunately got sick. They needed him out asap. He’s a cute little boy. Heartworm status is unknown at this time so we’re just trying to get him vetted. The link for his vetting sponsorship is HERE.
Jenny May Davis came from the Houston SPCA. She was a stray that was never claimed and got really sick at the shelter. She needs to be vetted and get over her bad upper respiratory infection and find her new home! If you can help with her vetting, her sponsorship link is HERE.
This is little Chaos Harris – so named because of all the Chaos he caused on the facebook page. First, we needed to get him, then he had an adoption hold, then it fell through, then another adoption hold, then the adopter backed out because he had one eye, then the shelter was going to try to adopt him out, then finally, called us to come get him. Yes, a lot of Chaos. His intake is completely sponsored already!
Just a couple of days ago, we received an urgent call from a member of a rescue group in Phoenix. A lady had gotten in over her head with a few shih tzu and desperately needed to get five little girls placed. At first, we thought we’d have to take in all five, but thankfully, the rescue group found fosters for all but one very, very shy little girl. This is little Dove Golden – she’s about three years old and only 7 pounds. We need an intake sponsorship for her and she’ll be ready for adoption in no time! Her intake sponsorship link is HERE.
Angus Turner is an adorable little shih tzu/poodle mix. Tiny, tiny boy, he was surrendered by his owner just this week. He needs a vetting sponsorship to determine why he is suffering from allergies. His link is HERE.
This adorable little brown cutie is no longer at the shelter. We aren’t yet sure we can take care of the ones we have taken in, but we’re hopeful we can get this adorable one too. If you can help us get him, his heartworm status is still unknown, but he does need an intake sponsorship. If you want to help him, his paypal link is HERE.
This is cutie pie Zoomie Ranger. He is a stray that was found before Thanksgiving by an air force couple in San Antonio. They graciously agreed to keep him through the holidays and drove him to Houston just this week. Unfortunately, he needs heartworm treatment. His paypal link is HERE.
This absolutely stunning little boy is Nickle Ranger. He was yet another little stray found running in the street. His intake is fully sponsored, thanks Margaret.
This is little Dehli Ranger – found eating garbage in the middle of the street by a good samaritan, she is confused and sad that she is lost. UPDATE: This little cutie found her owners!! Thanks to the diligence of the person that found her in the straight, she is now home, in her warm bed, with her owners.
Just a note: We do not have possession of some of these dogs yet. We try hard to get sponsorships before we get the dog so that they can be vetted immediately. But, sometimes things happen – adopters show up at the shelters, other rescue groups can pull the dogs, owners may show up for strays, etc. If you donate to a dog we ultimately do not get, we will apply the funds to another intake sponsorship. As you’ve seen – like with Chaos – sometimes pulling these dogs is a constantly moving target. Hope you understand.
