Blind Rescue Dog Gets New Home

Did you remember Tessa the blind dog?  Tessa has been adopted!! Yay!!!

Earlier this year, Tessa, a little dog who was blind and unable to walk, made headlines with the remarkable transformation she made after she was rescued from a shelter in California. A video made by the Bill Foundation detailing her story went viral, and many have watched for more than three months, hoping the group would be able to find the right home for Tessa.

Well, we have good news to share. This weekend, Tessa kicked off the summer by officially moving in with her new family. She spent several weeks “dating” the family to make sure they were a good fit. She was slowly integrated into the home with the retired couple, who had past experience in caring for a special needs dog, and had to other dogs to keep Tessa company. “She’s already learned to navigate the living room and kitchen like a champ and has proven to once again be the toy thief amongst her siblings!” said the Bill Foundation’s Annie Hart on Facebook. – Read it at Adopt a Pet

Abandoned kittens need our help!

It was around this time last year that we received the disturbing call from someone who had found 5 tiny kittens inside two plastic bags, in a dumpster. (http://bit.ly/18aIPPj)

Imagine our surprise and heartbreak when we received a very similar call last weekend, the day before Mother’s Day. Someone noticed that a plastic bag in a grocery cart outside of a big-box store kept undulating, long after the wind stopped blowing it around. Upon investigation, they found six tiny kittens fighting for their lives inside the bag.
Sadly, it was too late for one of the babies. But these five darlings made it into our loving care just in time for us to start them on the long path to recovery.

The night of the kittens’ rescue, little Elsie’s health plummeted. Her body temperature and blood sugar hit alarming lows. She was rushed to the ER where, over the course of 24 hours, she was stabilized. Now, she eats like a champ and has plenty of energy.

Gus, Karen, and Bianca are doing well overall, but the prognosis for Bianca & Karen’s affected eyes is unknown at this time.

Sweet little Lars has quite an uphill battle ahead. Though his general health is stable and his appetite is voracious, his badly infected eyes are clearly in need of intensive care. He is on the strongest, yet safest, medication we can provide for him, and our veterinarians are watching his progress closely.

Please consider helping us cover the costs of their medical care, as these babies work to recover from the trauma they have suffered.
