This year, #GivingTuesday will take place on November 28, 2017 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – and harness the power of social media to create a national movement around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping. We invite you to join the movement and share in the spirit of giving this year by showing your support for K-9 Angels Rescue.  Give early and generously for this #GivingTuesday and help us reach our goal of $7,000 for Warner.

Hi!  My name is Warner, and I sure am lucky K-9 Angels found me.  My foster mom had no idea how sick I was when she first pulled me from the shelter.  I had eye infections, ear infections, gum infections that would require almost half my teeth be removed, skin infections including staph and yeast, a suspected inguinal hernia (which turned out to be a tumor), luxating patella, and possible hip problems from being hit by a car.
*    *    *
It’s been over 6 weeks since I became an Angel, and I’ve been on more medications than I can count: several different antibiotics, anti-inflammatory meds, anti-fungal medicine, a couple different steroids, and some different pain medications.  Even though I didn’t enjoy getting poked, prodded, bathed and stuffed full of pills every day, I never gave foster mom one ounce of trouble.  She says I’m the sweetest boy ever and so happy to be alive!
*    *    *
I just recently became healthy enough for my first surgery on my teeth and to remove my tumor.  Luckily, my doctor said there’s nothing to worry about – it was just a huge fatty mass!  Unfortunately, my recovery has been really painful.  My knees and hips are the next issues to be addressed; we’ll find out more about treating those soon.
*    *    *
I sure am glad the Angels found me when they did.  I know I wouldn’t be alive without the help of a lot of people.  I still have so much love to give, thank you for helping me!

K-9 Angels Rescue is joining #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners — charities and nonprofits, schools, businesses, families and individuals — to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday season, #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, to give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support, and to help create a better world.

Helping Paw – FUZZ BUZZ

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.

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.
