Here are some cute pictures of some of our rescues to help you get through this craziness!
Fluffy’s road trip to NorCal! Thank you, auntie @marjanrusta & cousin Golsa (grandma too!) for giving me a ride to San Jose! Fluffy is now settled in with temporary hosts auntie @shararehsaedi , cousin @tara_amazaheri & family until he gets checked out by Dr Gonzalez of Kirkwood Animal Hospital, as he was apparently dumped at the shelter due to seizure episodes.
Your dogs might not know what’s going on with Covid-19 right now, but you sure do, so let’s do our part and stay healthy! (And make sure you give your pets big hugs :))
One of our most amazing foster families messaged us last night offering to foster ChaCho if he gets along with their dog. She saw the post on @bravedogsadvocacy page. ChaCho who was surrendered to the shelter by his family earlier this month, had until today (March 20), so we arranged to meet him outside the shelter building in the parking lot for a meet and greet. It went well although it’s evident ChaCho was anxious to walk away and find his owners…😔😔 Apparently ChaCho had an exit plan that fell apart at the last minute…He is still intact, has a stiff gait, muscle atrophy and overall seems a bit depressed. He is now decompressing at his new foster home and we will arrange to take him in to be neutered and more once the vet hospitals open up for non emergency cases. Stay tuned for more about little man ChaCho as he starts to trust his new people.
Fostering Saves Lives! We at rescue receive several emails on a daily basis asking if we would consider taking on a new case. We receive these notices when the dog or cat’s time is up. Fluffy was one of them. His face reminded me of Milo who we rescued from Iran a couple of years ago. He too had cherry eye! Fluffy was dumped by his family at @baldwinparkanimalslaco late last month at age of 10. The notes indicate he was surrendered due to seizures…we reached out to our amazing network and received a couple of foster offers! Next we contacted the shelter to let them know we are working on the details while we reached out to our wonderful volunteers in LA area. @arezooshaytoon who is a nurse and working harder than most of us these days dropped everything on her only day off this week and drove out to the shelter to pull Fluffy for us. She then brought him home for a couple of hours until another kind volunteer @fariba.asgari.3 helped transport him to his temporary hosts Jennifer, her husband and their pack for a couple of days until a dear friend drives him up to NorCal where he will be fostered while we have him seen by our local vet. We hope to get a better understanding of extent of his seizure episodes so he can get the right dosage of medications to get a handle on it and we will also see if surgery will help with his cherry eye. 😍 Thank you to each and everyone involved in Fluffy’s last minute rescue. 🙏😇🐾 Please stay tuned for more
Remember Chuy from San Jose Shelter? (His rescue story can be found in our previous posts)
He had a follow up appointment with Dr Gonzalez at Kirkwood Animal Hospital. He has been responding to the meds prescribed, so we believe he has pemphigus. He’s going to continue his meds and next is an appointment with the groomer before we finalize his adoption! That’s right! The wonderful foster family who took him in since we pulled him from the shelter is unable to let go of him! Yay!!! Happy Friday everyone! Thanks for all your support, always!
