Laverne and Shirley

Laverne Before

Laverne Before

We pulled two sweet girls from Moreno Valley shelter a couple of weeks ago. They had the sniffles but we were not worried. We took them to the vet and put them on antibiotic but it just seemed to get worse not better. Back to the vet they went. Our vet was treating five dogs from the same shelter that were all really, really sick.

After several days on IV antibiotics and fluids they finally started to come around. There is a nasty virus out there and we are glad our girls are better. They still need to be spayed but they will be ready for adoption soon. Thank you Carolyn and Dr Card for pulling our girls through this.

Yep, Destiny meet Destiny! Both Destiny’s are 6 year old blond girls with wavy curls and a big smile. What are the odds?

Thank you to Destiny and her troop for a job well done!

Meet Traegen

11250072_1160115780680760_691150719856528976_nMeet Traegen, a 3 year old cocker boy, we pulled from the Bakersfield shelter this week. He has been severely neglected. Pus is pouring from both ears although he seems to be able to hear.  And yet he is the sweetest, kindest little love, whose big brown eyes will melt your heart.

Buffy Before (2)Buffy was in a sad condition at the East Valley shelter and they knew it. She was listed Rescue Only. With that tumor no way was she going to get adopted. She also had cherry eye in both eyes and terrible ears.

Buffy beforeWe pulled her and sent her off for surgery. She go her eyes fixed and got one of her mammary chains removed. She will have to wait a month to heal up before they can remove the second chain. She will be in recovery for at least two weeks after that before she will be adoptable.

A3653053 Cakes 8 yr old“Cakes” had been sitting at the Carson shelter for too long with out any interest in her at all. From her picture we could see she had at the very least a bad eye and didn’t look verimagey happy about being in the shelter. We decided that we to pull her and renamed her Patti Cakes.

She had kennel cough when she came in and even after medication she got worse and worse. She ended up at the vets on an IV with antibiotics over night. We just picked her up and she is feeling much perkier. After her recovery we got her spayed and had surgery on her bad eye. Now she is recovered and ready for adoption.

2015 WAGS (2)Sponsered by Daniel Gehrs Winery and held at their tasting room garden in Los Olivos, CA on Sunday, this event was a huge success. We had so much fun and made over $10,000 for the dogs. We tasted Daniel Gehrs wines, ate wonderful food and the items for the silent and live auction were amazing. We will be doing this again next year for sure!

Many thanks to all volunteers and most especially to Daniel Gehrs Winery, Mary Levesque and Dennis and Claudine Lingo.
