Before they come to us our animals experience incredible hardship so they frequently require special care, including extensive surgery, specialty veterinary care, and physical or emotional rehabilitation. For most of our animals, that recovery occurs in a foster home where they can be supported by loving people while they complete their veterinary follow-ups and learn to trust. Below are the animals currently under the supervision of a veterinarian or recovering in a foster home.
P.S. – Foster homes are always needed. If you are interested in fostering, please see our information about fostering here .
Noah – This sweet man fought hard to recover from the neglect he has suffered. Noah was on a feeding tube for quite some time and all of his teeth had to be removed. He is now recovering in a wonderful foster home and will be ready for adoption soon! Dusty – Diagnosed with Cryptosporidium, a parasite which causes severe gastrointestinal distress. This poor fellow is still fighting in the ICU at Blue Pearl, his violent, watery diarrhea is slowly getting better, his appetite has returned, and he is getting stronger every day. We hope to place him in a loving foster home soon. Mary – This precious girl and her two brothers were brought in with acute skin infections/deep lesions, eye and ear infections, and are emaciated with bellies full of raw corn. They are currently in the hospital receiving the critical care needed! Paul – This blue eyed boy and his siblings were brought in with acute skin infections/deep lesions, eye and ear infections, and are emaciated with bellies full of raw corn. They are currently in the hospital receiving the critical care needed! Peter – This handsome boy and his siblings were brought in with acute skin infections/deep lesions, eye and ear infections, and are emaciated with bellies full of raw corn. They are currently in the hospital receiving the critical care needed! Ellie – This poor girl was shot with a bb gun multiple times, covered with over 100 ticks (some the size of a dime), has a chronic fracture of her right back leg, right shoulder lameness, and severe parasitism, which is causing profound anemia. She is currently being treated for all the parasites and will undergo surgery to repair her leg soon! Belle – This precious girl came to us with a large hernia, her intestines were inside it. She also had multiple mammary tumors. A successful surgery was performed but unfortunately she was also diagnosed with chronic Pancreatitis, arthritis, and diabetes. Belle is now being spoiled in a loving hospice foster home! Finn – The surgery to remove the aortic branch constricting his esophagus was a success. The prognosis for Finn is dependent on how well his esophagus, which functions solely to deliver food to the stomach, recovers from the damage done by the constriction. He must be fed upright and stay on a slurry diet for the rest of his life. Despite all his issues, he is a sweet and happy boy who loves everyone he meets Hawthorne – Hawthorne came in with a large testicular tumor. He had endured a tragic life of abuse and neglect but with a safe re-feeding plan, mass removal surgery and neuter while he was under, treatment for the many gashes all over his body, chronic pancreatitis and GI treatment, dermatology care, eye infection treatment, prostate abscess surgery (likely necessary as a result of that longtime giant mass hanging from testicles), long term prostate infection treatment (it’s a difficult infection to target and stay on top of), and most recently he’s been diagnosed with Cushings, so now Cushings treatment for the rest of his life. This sweet baby has joined our Hospice program where he will have a chance to love and be loved in return! Chewbacca – This sweetheart is in our Hospice program and is thriving with love and veterinary care. They have reconstructed his nasal passages, but some teeth were lost and more surgery may be required. Chewbacca is a sweetheart; he nuzzles and loves to be cuddled.
