Why we need your support
With your support, we have been instrumental in the adoption of over 5,000 animals from 1994 through today. Our organization helps to feed, house, provide medical attention, and care for these animals. We have provided veterinary care for rescued pets with broken jaws, hip and leg fractures, upper respiratory infections, cancer, mange, and even helped Hannah obtain a pacemaker. We are able to provide this care and save so many animals because of your support.
Our organization does not maintain a costly facility or paid staff. We are an all-volunteer organization, relying on foster homes and private donations to continue our work. All money raised for Wag ‘n Walk directly benefits homeless animals in our community. Please help spread the word about our event.
We recently saved two dogs who were both hit by vehicles. Hawk is a 10 month old Pomeranian / Chihuahua mix. He had severe injuries; two broken legs (fractured tibia on one and fractured knee on the other), lacerations on one of his legs, chest, and ear, and a collapsed lung. He had surgery and is still healing. The knee injury is one of the worst breaks the orthopedic specialist has seen. He currently has splints on both legs making him walk like a soldier which causes him to fall over often. So far he is healing nicely. He will not be available for at least another 4-6 weeks.
Bubbles is a 6 month old Maltese / Papillon mix. As a result of being hit by the car, her femur head broke off. Her injury was simpler to repair and therefore quicker to heal. She was immediately able to use her leg with an occasional limp. She will be available in about 2 weeks.
