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. 💔

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 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.

If I close my eyes, will it go away?

Gassing chambers still being used in parts of the United States to kill cats and dogs at animal shelters.
If I close my eyes, will it go away?

Heart-sticking cats and dogs at animal shelters in the United States.
If I close my eyes, will it go away?

Owners chaining their dogs, forgetting to feed them, or provide them with water. Many abused, most forgotten.
If I close my eyes, will it go away?

List after list after list of adoptable cats and dogs scheduled for euthanasia at over-crowded shelters.
If I close my eyes, will it go away?

Of course, the answer is no, but too many people do not want to see the horrors that are afflicted on our society’s cats and dogs. Too many good pet owners are content to live in their own bubble of contentment; enjoying their happy cat or dog – providing good ownership and lots of love, but closed off to the horrors that befall the unlucky cats and dogs all around us. If we close our eyes to abused children – the abuse does not stop.  If we choose not to see the homeless or the hungry, their need does not go away.

I would encourage you to please get involved in some way.  There are multiple ways for everyone to be involved. Sign a petition that supports the end of heart-sticking and gas chambers for United States animal shelters. Follow the Gig Harbor business-woman’s lead and post a pet of the week flier at your place of business. Choose a local shelter that you visit and take photos for the flier – it’s easy and it helps. Foster a homeless cat or dog – do not be one of the people who states that it is too hard to foster because you will be sad when the dog or cat is adopted.  If you open your eyes, will you be sad when that cat or dog that you could have fostered is destroyed at an over-crowded shelter?

Adopt your next cat or dog.  Do not buy your next pet from an irresponsible breeder or a pet store.  Help stop the breeding madness that has taken over our society. Spay and neuter your own pets.  Do not contribute to the unwanted animals who are dying day after day. Donate to a local cat or dog rescue, or to your local animal shelter.

Visit Petfinder.com to find a shelter or rescue near you.

Report cases of neglect or abuse when you see it. If you drive by a house with a dog chained to a tree, suffering through the elements without shelter, food or water – please pick up the phone and call animal control or the police and report the problem. Don’t close your eyes and pretend that it will go away. Help the rescue organizations who have taken in society’s cast-offs or the abused dogs who have no one else to care for them. Contact a local dog or cat rescue and find out if you can donate items, or perhaps help with transporting animals in need to/from foster homes, vet appointments, or even on cross-country road trips.

Rescues are desperate for people who are willing and able to help.  Once you try, you will realize just how easy it is to make a difference. Bearing witness to animal cruelty is not an easy task, but closing your eyes to the problem will not make it go away. Please do your part, in some way, to help those cats and dogs who do not have a voice.

Matching Gift & Grant Programs

Matching Gift
Many companies offer programs that enable you to donate money to your favorite charity.  They have Matching Gift Programs and also offer grants if you volunteer with a 501(c)3!  With the Matching Gift Program, you don’t even need to volunteer with us.  All you need to do is make a donation to K-9 Angels Rescue and whatever amount of money you donate to us, your company will match your donation and send us a donation check for the same amount, after confirming your donation with us.

Grant
To be eligible for a grant, you’ll need to put in a certain amount of volunteer hours with us (each company is different in the volunteer’s hours required).  They will also need to confirm your hours with us and before sending us a donation check.  Some companies donate as much as $1,500 several times a year!  Please check with your company to see if they offer grant programs and to understand the necessary requirements.   It’s an easy way to help us out!   Thank you!

Donation
We have donation options on the donate page of our website.
You can choose to make a one-time donation or to set a recurring monthly donation to K-9 Angels Rescue!
