Help PUP Save Stanley!

Shelters we work with know how much we enjoy helping  medical-needs dogs and cats, those cases where time or resources are not on the animal’s side. It was one of those nights we were contacted by Animal Control Officer Kristen Hill.

Stanley had been hit by a car and sustained a broken pelvis. His left hip socket was also completely smashed, so his leg had to be amputated. Looking at his x-rays, we knew he had to be in excruciating pain and in need of surgery ASAP. He’s now on crate rest after surgery, but he’s a much happier little guy.

Healthy, Happy, And Adopted – Frannie’s Happy Tail!

Frannie came to PUP from a high kill shelter in California. She was on the “to be euthanized” list due to what they called a fracture. After getting her to PUP, we learned through our vet that Frannie desperately needed an FHO (Femoral Head Osteotomy). This surgery needed to be performed by a specialist. With the help of one of our favorite clinics, Companion Animal Hospital, and one of our favorite surgeons, Dr. Okrasinski of Summit Vets, Frannie was able to get the surgery she needed at a generously discounted cost.

She was recently adopted, and by the looks of her adopter’s smile and the glisten in Frannie’s eyes, she and her new family are both very happy.

From Shelter To Rescue To Loving Home – Rickey’s Happy Tail!

Rickey was one of those dogs you take one look at and fall in love with, lack of hair and all. How could someone pass him up? A young puppy at only 8 weeks old, he was a happy-go-lucky critter in spite of his skin issues. Demodex mange is not complicated to treat–it just takes time and commitment with simple medication and baths.

After getting him healthy again, we were all surprised at his striking black coat with beautiful brown eyebrows. He was adopted in a heartbeat.

From shelter to rescue to loving home. You can’t beat that for our mangy pup.

Remo And Hope’s Happy Tail!

Earlier this year, PUP was contacted about a puppy mill that had just been shut down. This mill housed of dogs of all ages, including a feral, blind, and deaf male Cattle Dog. There was also a feral female Cattle Dog who was either pregnant or had just given birth. These two were the last dogs left by the rescuers and still in need of help. Given the resources they would require and realizing they may not be adoptable in the end, it was clear to us why they were left behind. We also understood why we were contacted.

Our first question: how can you give up on two dogs who have lived their lives untouched by human hands, living in their own feces and urine for years on end? How can you leave them behind, knowing the others all made it out? We couldn’t, so upon meeting them, we immediately said yes and pulled them into our program.

Fast forward six months. These two dogs have both been adopted and are doing well. Our female, Hope, won the heart of her foster family and will live her life out on a farm with other dogs, a few kitties, and even some bunnies. Remo, our male, found his loving home with a longtime friend and founder of her own sanctuary. Remo’s family now consists of dogs, cats, chickens, and roosters. Even though both deaf and blind, Remo is visibly content, enjoying the smells, sunshine, and companionship his new home provides. Making progress each and every day, these two dogs will definitely thrive with the love and determination of their families.

PUP Dog Joei Needs Your Help!

Joei was a popular pup in the shelter until people realized there was something terribly wrong. Thankfully, shelter staff called us, and we agreed to quickly get her to the clinic for rectal prolapse surgery.

Little Joei died briefly on the table, but her doctor quickly brought her back and tacked up the area temporarily until she was strong enough to get another surgery.

Our transport drivers took extra special care bringing her to PUP. After additional bile acid testing and an ultrasound, it was determined that she didn’t have a liver shunt–something else she could have been facing, but thankfully wasn’t

Such a young pup–only 8 weeks old, and so many hospital visits already. Joei has gotten much stronger in the care of her foster family, and we’re looking forward to getting her next surgery after Thanksgiving. She is a doll and such a character. Dogs never stop amazing us at just how adaptable and forgiving they are after going through so much pain. We look forward to finding her a very special home, as we do for all of our pups.

How Could Anyone Leave A Jewel Like Odoul Behind?

When we see dogs like Odoul, we wonder, how could a beautiful, sweet pup end up in such sad shape? How could anyone walk past him and not help?

As we were going through the website of one of the shelters we help, we came upon this sad, crusty little face. We asked if we could pull him in to Washington. The shelter staff, knowing how we love the medical needs dogs, laughed and said yes.

With just a couple of months of treatment and a lot of love, our boy is almost ready for his new home. And what a happy puppy he is. Wow! If he’s not playing with another dog, he’s playing with a toy. And if he’s not playing with a toy, he’s snuggling next to you. Fully house-trained, too. How can anyone leave a jewel like this behind? We know that whoever does adopt our boy, they will be very blessed.

When PUP Dog Louie Met His New Family, It Was Magical!

Louie came to PUP after his owner drove off without him at the shelter. Since he was a large breed and an older dog, there was little chance of finding him a home in California. When the animal control officer asked if she could send him to PUP, we jumped at the opportunity to find this big love a great home. And, we did!

When he first met his new family, it was magical. They had been looking for months to find that special match. When they first saw Louie at one of our adoption events, they lit up,  smiles all around. In the past, we had watched Louie walk away from each adoption event as sad as he came in, but this event was different. It was as if Louie had been waiting for them, too. His tail started wagging, and we swear he was smiling as he leaned in to them for pets.

It was then we knew Louie was home.

Sick and Abandoned, PUP Dog Stanley is Finally Home!

In June 2015, Lewis County Animal Shelter asked if we’d take in a dog that had been left in an abandoned home. He desperately needed medical attention. After one look at his shelter photo, we knew he had a very, very long journey ahead of him. Thankfully, our vets and staff at Chehalis-Centralia Veterinary Hospital were up to the task. With many, many, many trips to the clinic for laser surgeries on his ears, multiple medications for his skin, ears, and eyes, some good food, and a lot of love from his foster family, he came through it all beautifully. Or should I say handsomely? Wow, what a year this boy had!

Stanley will always require medication for his skin, he’ll always need someone to make sure his ears stay clean, he’ll always need medication for his eyes, and he’ll always require special food. But a year later, he is finally home.

Thank you to PUP Volunteers Becky and Bernadette for the many, many, many trips to the vet, the hundreds of pills and eye drops you’ve administered, the many, many baths you’ve given him, and the thousands of hours you’ve loved and taken care of him.

Looking at your sweet face, Stanley, and with tears coming to my eyes, I wish you a lot of love and the best life this world and your new family have to offer.

PUP Dog Karma’s Incredible Transformation!

The shelter contacted us to take Karma in 2014. When we saw her, we were in shock. Her face and  parts of her body were peeling off due to the mange and antibacterial and fungal infections that came about due to  lack of care.

Such a beautiful puppy. How does this happen? We ask ourselves. No puppy is born thinking they want to end up like this.

We pulled her into our care immediately and got her treated. She flourished and became a gorgeous dog— wow! And eventually, Karma found a loving home that could care for her the way she deserved.
