Glory (pictured above) was blind in one eye from an untreated injury. She and Montana were both on their fourth litters at just three years old. Ivy was on her seventh litter at just five years old.
Our volunteers fostered these special dogs and cared for them through whelping, subsequent surgeries, and many follow up visits. All had to be spayed. Plus, Glory needed her injured eye removed, and Montana required mammary tumor removal.
The foster families also tirelessly cared for the many babies who, thanks to rescue, escaped an early life of horror and untold future. Out of this terrible situation, we saved 22 puppies and their special moms and found them forever homes! (See more pictures below.)
While this type of multiple dog rescue is exceptional, expenses quickly add up, even for just one dog. For example, sweet and spunky 6-year-old Wyatt came into rescue needing full vetting, four teeth and two tumors removed. Even with generous partner vets offering discounted pricing, his care cost over $1,000.
In 2018, we saved 50 GPSs from ages newborn to 13 years old. They came to us as strays, from shelters, owner surrenders, and breeders. In addition to covering New Jersey and New York, we help sister rescues across the country that have fewer adopters and many more dogs - some in dire situations like the one in Pennsylvania.
