This is Koi

This is Koi.  She has had a terribly lonely life.  She’s learning about love – we’re letting her get used to us all at her pace.  She tentatively came up to see me this morning.  I knelt down and she nuzzled me.  It’s these little things that let me know rescue is worth it.

We are in the funds gathering phase of our biggest, annual fundraiser, Strut Your Mutt (SYM).  Every dollar we raise goes back to help dogs like Koi.
Please help us help them.  Donate to our SYM Team effort –>>> Bit.ly/tanksmom

Harris County Shelter – Part II

K-9 Angels Rescue went to help clean up at HCPH for the second time yesterday.  We were so surprised when Miranda Lambert’s Mutt Nation arrived at HCPH.  They took 71 dogs!  It allowed the staff to get the shelter extra clean and ready for hurricane relief. Thank you to everyone who helped!

This girl’s ears looked as if someone had cut the flaps to look pierced.
She was afraid to be touched. Dogs should not be hurt by humans.

In case anyone would like to donate to this sweet lady’s Strut Your Mutt page!

Helping Paw – FUZZ BUZZ

*Warning: contains graphic image*

Image may contain: one or more people

Even as seasoned rescuers, we still get shocked by the condition some of these pups are in when we find them.
Two days ago (June 5 2017) someone found this puppy all alone by a dumpster and turned him into the Harris County animal shelter.  He has a large open wound on his back that was completely infested with maggots.  The maggots literally ate holes deep into his body.  Apart from the maggots, he was anemic, emaciated, covered in fleas… and only 3 weeks old.  He should still be nursing from his mom but he was all alone.  Literally thrown out with the trash.

We don’t know how he ended up by the dumpster, and it really doesn’t matter now.  As soon as the incredible veterinarians at the shelter told us about him and how long it took them to pull the maggots out of his tiny body, we knew we had to help.

He is with one of our most experienced bottle-baby fosters since he requires around the clock syringe feedings.  He has had multiple vet visits already to make sure we’re controlling his terrible infection.  At only 3 weeks old and 1.5 pounds we have to be incredibly careful with the drugs we use; many can be harmful to his young kidneys and liver.  He’s on multiple medicines and hydrotherapy, but he is still so terribly uncomfortable.  He only finds it easy to sleep while his foster mommy is holding him. 💔

Image may contain: one or more people

We have high hopes for this little fighter, even though his prognosis is still guarded.  We will do everything we can for him because he deserves a full life and a happy ending.  If you would like to donate to his care, please do. We will need it to cover his already piling medical bills.
> If you’d like to donate via PayPal (which also allows non-PayPal folks to use a credit card) please go to THIS LINK.
> If you’d like to donate with a check, please note in the memo
“for FUZZ BUZZ” and mail it to:
K-9 Angels Rescue – 9415 Winsome Ln. Houston TX 77063
> and/or subscribe to become a K-9 Angels Guardian at THIS LINK to provide for FUZZ BUZZ now and future Helping Paw needs!

His foster mommy has named him Fuzz Buzz: he’s fuzzy in the front and buzzed in the back.  We believe he is a small breed but won’t know for sure until he gets bigger and stronger.  And we pray he will.  Soon.
