On Monday the pups saw a neurologist who determined that both pups are in need of MRI scans to determine the extent of the long term damage caused by their injuries. Unfortunately they were not able to perform the scans immediately because both pups are also suffering from upper respiratory infections which will need to clear up before they can be safely sedated for the scans. Triumph did undergo a procedure to remove some fluid that had built up around his brain. The MRI and treatments that the puppies will be in need of once their upper respiratory infections clear up is estimated to cost
$3,749 per puppy. This means that we need to raise almost $7,500 in order to get these sweet babies the care that they need!

We also have some fantastic news! Animal House Shelter was able to rescue Hero and Triumph’s mother and she arrived at AHS on last night’s transport!
Beautiful Belle was found in the ditch along side her babies. When the pups arrived last week without her, AHS worked tirelessly, networking around the clock, to make sure she got to us safely as well. She arrived last night and is doing well, but sadly she has tested positive for heart worm. Please click on the link below to help with the cost of care for Belle and her babies!
For those of you who missed the story of Hero and Triumph:
These sweet puppies arrived at Animal House shelter on Tuesday 12/13/16 after being found dumped in a ditch in southern Illinois. They had been used as bait dogs and suffered significant injuries. After being used for this horrific purpose, they were discarded like trash. Hero’s wounds are slowly healing- including broken teeth and a traumatic injury to his frontal sinus area that will result in permanent changes to his face. He also has a small non-functioning eye. His brother Triumph received the bulk of the injuries from their horrific past including suspected neurological damage, bite wounds around his head and ears, a missing eye and his entire muzzle has been pushed up and back. His face has significant swelling and our vet has recommended he see a specialist to have extensive testing done as he suspects significant skull/bone injury, brain damage and possibly deeper infection.
In spite of all of this, Hero and Triumph are the sweetest puppies that just want to be loved and play. Please help us spread the word about their story and make a donation so that these puppies can get the medical care they need and have a chance at living a happy, normal life with a loving forever home.
Rhonda needs your help!
Rhonda is a 3 and 1/2 year old Bulldog who is currently a resident of Animal House Shelter. She has been diagnosed with Ectopic Ureters, which means her ureters do not end at her bladder like they are supposed to and this causes her to have issues with urinary incontinence. This condition is something that she was born with. Because it was not corrected when she was a puppy, all her life urine has been backing up into her kidneys causing severe renal disease. There is a surgery that can be done to correct Rhonda’s Ectopic Ureters, but our vet is not sure how much longer she has to survive due to her renal disease. We are hoping to raise the funds to cover the cost of her surgery, in the hopes that it will extend her life even just a bit further. Please consider donating to help Rhonda have the surgery that she needs.
Sweet Amy was adopted from Animal House Shelter 6 years ago as a puppy. She was returned to us recently because her family was no longer able to afford her care. About a year after she was originally adopted, Amy began to lose her hair. Despite extensive testing by her adoptive family’s vet, the cause of her problem could not be determined. Animal House Shelter has also been conducting tests since she was returned and the cause of her problem still remains a mystery. We are not giving up on her, as we are determined to make sure she no longer has to live with the discomfort that her skin causes her. She is an incredibly sweet, loving and affectionate girl who is amazing with other dogs and children. Please consider making a donation so that Animal House Shelter can find the cause of Amy’s problem and/or make Amy a part of your home and family by adopting or fostering her!
