3 Dog Save!

Cookie, Foca and Princess!

Thanks to Alexandra Bonvicini, Cat Ku, Piper Wood, Janie Mudrick and Sandy Lewis-Duvall of The Shabby Dog Boutique and Kennel we have been able to SAVE THREE GIRLS THIS WEEK! First we got Cookie, and today we got Foca and Princess. Cookie is doing great! She is really fitting in at the kennel, where they just love her she is so fun and happy! She does need a biopsy for tumors, but once that is sorted out she will be a great dog for adoption, check her out in this pic with one of our board members, Sam:

Foca and Princess came in today!

Today Cat brought us two more! Foca should be really adoptable, she was owner surrendered due to personal issues, nothing to do with Foca, who is well socialized and house trained. Here is a picture:

Princess though is a little bit more difficult. This poor little 8 pound girl has clearly had some abuse in her past. She has two cherry eyes (Read about cherry eye here), and something is wrong with her back legs too. In this photo you can clearly see the eye issue:

Here is video of when they were dropped off, you can see some of what we are talking about regarding Princess’s rear legs in this video:

It’s Cookie Time!

Meet Cookie! She’s five years-old, sweet as can be, 10lbs Terrier/Yorkie mix.

She was stuck at the West Los Angles shelter for nearly a month. They really liked her there, but they had discovered mammary tumors and thus it was very hard to get her adopted. Thanks to some generous donations, and a big assist from The Shabby Dog Boutique and Kennel in Sierra Madre, we were able to take her in! Here is video of her at the shelter:

We have gotten her to the vet, and a biopsy will be performed. Other than the tumors she is perfectly healthy. Please keep a thought out for Cookie! We are not raising any money for her now, because the generous donors who helped us get her out of the shelter have donated enough for her initial care and biopsies. If she needs further care we will be doing a fundraiser, but let’s all hope that won’t be necessary!

We Are Back!

Hey everyone,

The problems we had been having with our website have been fixed and we are adding new funding projects now. A number of people contacted us in the last weeks and we were not able to help. If you were one of those people (or know them), please get in touch, WE CAN LIST YOUR PROJECT NOW!

We apologize for this annoying problem, be sure we are working and planning and plotting to make sure it does not happen again.

Thank you all SO MUCH for your continued support!


We Took in Cookie from the Shelter

Cookie was surrendered by her owner to the West Los Angeles shelter.

Honor pledges by donating through PayPal here!

She has mammary tumors, which is probably why she was surrendered. The shelter staff loved her and said she was really friendly, but she couldn’t get adopted to the public due to the medical condition, and she wasn’t getting rescued. Our friend Alexandra Bonvicini reached out and organized a team of people to pull her from the shelter and transport her to The Shabby Dog, who kennels our rescues for FREE. Here is video of her at the shelter:

We will be taking her to the vet this week to get the tumors looked at, and we will be updating of course. If you pledged to Cookie, or would like to donate to her care, please donate through PayPal at this link. (You do not need a PayPal account to donate). Or you can mail your pledge or donation to Free Animal Doctor, 70 E. Montecito Ave., Sierra Madre, CA 91024.
