Baby Wendy Needs Your Help!

Just a week ago sweet baby Wendy was like any other puppy getting ready to find her forever home. She had been recently rescued from a high-kill facility, getting her second chance at life, and had been welcomed into the loving arms of her foster family. When one of Wendy’s baby teeth was giving her trouble, she went into the veterinarian for a routine extraction. However, when the veterinarian removed her troublesome tooth, he noticed some very abnormal tissue inside Wendy’s mouth and sent out a biopsy as a precaution.

What came back was startling- at just 16 weeks old, Wendy had been diagnosed with a Squamous Cell Carcinoma- an extremely aggressive cancer. Wendy’s only hope is to have an emergency surgery to remove the cancer from her mouth. Without the surgery, her prognosis is very poor as the cancer will quickly consume her jaw.

Wendy’s Surgery is estimated to cost $5,000. Please consider donating so that we can give Wendy the best possible chance at a long and happy life with a forever family.

 

Kendra & Thaxton

Kendra and Thaxton are a very special bonded pair.  Kendra doesn’t like to be very far from her boy, she is always keeping her eye out for him.  She was very skittish at first, but has since started to open up.  When you see them your heart will just melt. These two are total lovers, snugglers, and all around best friends to people.  They didn’t have a great life before they came to AHS, and we are working on finding these special babies a very special home together.  Please come in and spend some time with them, you never know when your new best friends are around the corner!

A New Beginning for Sage

Please SHARE!!!!

Sage, a 5-month-old puppy, recently arrived to AHS as a transport from a high-kill facility. Upon arrival, it was immediately apparent that Sage was having issues walking and getting around normally. He stumbled and sometimes even would collapse as he tried with all of his might to play. Upon seeing our veterinarian, it was concluded that Sage has suffered significant injuries at the hands of a human prior to his rescue by AHS. His trauma was most likely from being struck by a blunt object, such as a baseball bat. He was hit with such brutal force that his entire pelvis has been shattered and his spine fractured.

At the recommendation of our vet, Sage was rushed to a specialty clinic and admitted for emergency surgery on the evening of 10/12/2017. During this surgery, he will have a plate and screws placed into his broken pelvis to stabilize it so that he might have the chance to one day run and play like any other puppy.

This procedure is estimated to cost approximately $4500.

Please consider donating to help with costs of Sage’s surgery! Any little bit helps and is greatly appreciated!!!

Sage will also need a foster home to recover in post surgery- if you are interested in fostering please give us a call at the shelter or PM us here on Facebook. If you aren’t an approved foster yet you can fill out the application here:
