Our Web Site mostly focuses on the positive side of the Adoption process, however like our name says we are a Rescue and unfortunately we are witness to the initial abuse/neglect some dogs were subjected before coming to us.

"Sad the amount of suffering some of these creatures have been given by some of us, thank god there is some of us willing to fix it"

When this poor girl came to us, she could barely open her eyes. She was diagnosed with Entropion. It is a genetic condition in which a portion of the eyelid is inverted or folded inward. This can cause an eyelash or hair to irritate and scratch the surface of the eye, leading to corneal ulceration or perforation. It can also cause dark-colored scar tissue to build up over the wound (pigmentary keratitis). These factors may cause a decrease or loss of vision if left untreated. Thankfully we were able to help her and one of our Doctors (Dr.Vaino) performed the surgery. She is a very happy girl now and ready for a new home!

Unfortunately a very common form of abuse we encounter in dogs all of ages, is people trying to alter the tail of their dog into a "bob tail"; this very humane and painful practice is done by tightly tying several rubber bands to the tail of a dog, in order to cut the blood circulation causing the remaining area to wither, rot away and eventually fall off. Panda is the classic example of the many cases we have unfortunately seen, however she was lucky enough to have been rescued and provided with medical assistance. This cruel practice is very common specially in puppies and cause by lack of knowledge and ignorance; causing these innocent babies severe pain, infection and in many cases death.
Panda is still on medications and she will be able to fully recover.

Lilly was recently brought to us with over 70% of her hair missing due to Demodex. Demodex is an extremely itchy and slow to progress condition caused by a microscopic mite.
Unfortunately, a very common form of animal abuse takes place when a dog owner decides not to provide the necessary veterinary assistance once their dog displays signs of illness.

Would you allow your own child have a rash expanding on their skin and decide to finally take him to the doctor weeks or months later???
