Please Help Goldie

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/66490f4d-993b-4201-a372-de2ed1ec0b28_profile-300×225.jpg” width=”300″ height=”225″ text=”Goldie” plain=”1″]

Goldie needs our help to raise money for her heartworm treatment, teeth extractions, and cancerous tumor removal!

This sweet gal was found in an abandoned house that was condemned and due to be demolished. Before knocking the place down they checked and found her and several other dogs inside. Animal control picked her and the others up, and she entered the shelter severely underweight at just 45lbs. Her age is estimated at 5 years old and she tested heartworm positive. Her front teeth were all worn down to nothing with the roots exposed, 2 of her canines were broken with roots showing, most likely from eating trash and tearing open canned food.

Luckily we were able to get her teeth removed and during her spay came across some cancerous tumors that had to be removed! She was covered in fleas with a skin infection but after some time in her loving foster home she is doing so much better! Goldie has come a long way but still has a ways to go.

Now that she has had a constant supply of food for a few weeks, we estimate she weighs about 65 pounds. She is house trained, crate trained, and can’t wait to get healthy again so she can go off to her forever home!

Please Help our Sweet Tessa

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/84dd2390-b490-4a82-9d9e-c14d11f9ffe9_profile-300×225.jpg” width=”300″ height=”225″ text=”Tessa” plain=”1″]

This is our sweet Tessa. She is a foster dog with Paws for Life Animal Rescue here in NC. She found herself stuck at the Franklin County Shelter with two siblings left because the owner did not want to care for them anymore. Her kind eyes drew her foster in and even though she was heartworm positive the foster had to take her into her home and get her well.

The goal is to find her a wonderful forever family to match her amazing spirit. Tessa is roughly age 5. We think she is a Brittany mixed with sheltie. She is 55lbs but could stand to drop 10-15!

She is a lazy gal. She loves to lounge on the couch or floor. She is a people dog and wants to please, kiss, and follow you around! She loves dogs and cats alike. She had lived with 2 male dogs in her previous life. She lives with a male and female dog and 3 cats in her foster home.

Can you help us to get her heartworm free so we can get her into her forever home? HW treatment sucks the rescue funds right down (along with the many other medical surgical cases we face). Paws for Life does not shy away from dogs with medical needs because we know we are their best chance at survival. We rely on your donations to save lives as we are 100% non profit / 100% volunteer and 100% foster system based.

Hadley Update

Hadley wants to say thank you to everyone who donated to and shared her fundraiser! We were able to meet our goal and Hadley had surgery to repair her leg on Wednesday, March 22nd. Sweet Hadley was the victim of a domestic violence situation in which her femur bone was broken at the growth plate. Hadley will be on crate rest for three weeks with very little activity. Even though she has to be crate-rested she is a very happy girl! She is doing very well with potty-training and very rarely uses the bathroom in her crate. She enjoys sitting with her foster parents and quietly chewing a bone, cuddling with her favorite stuffed toy or giving lots of sweet puppy kisses. Hadley is learning that cats can be her friend and when she’s all better, she will finally get to play with other doggies. Please keep Hadley in your thoughts as she continues to heal!
