2018 has been another amazing year at HWAH. We are now in our 12
official year as a non-profit caring for Seriously Senior and Special needs dogs and cats. With your continued support we have been able to save 12 seniors this past year through our K-9 Medical Miracle Fund and working with our Rescue partners.
One such collaboration with Pet Connect Rescue was Rocky. A rescue story that played out over many months.
We had been copied on several emails letting the Rescue community know about Rocky who was being held by a nearby Animal Shelter. The Shelter was looking for a Hospice placement for 15-year-old Rocky. Rocky’s situation was really dire. He had been confiscated as an abuse neglect case by Animal Control.
A large American Bulldog who should have weighed over 60 pounds was just a mere 44 pounds and had difficulty standing as his muscles were so atrophied. He looked like a skeleton and even the toughest who looked at him was moved to tears.
One of our Rescue Partners, Pet Connect also saw the post and Randi touched base with us to see if they pulled Rocky from the shelter could he hang out with us at HWAH since he was a Hospice case and likely would not live much longer. Of course, we said yes and Rocky arrived at the Sanctuary.
