Here are some of the animals Tails of Hope has helped. Make sure you check out the "after" shots too!
Little Harriet had a terrible headwound, the result of years of matting and neglect. Tails of Hope donated $200 towards her care.
Sorry for the graphic pic, but this is the reality of poor Harriet's wound. See next pic for how she's healing.
But look how well it's healing! She is in foster care now, and on the road to recovery.
Bunny is a 10-year-old Beagle who is in rescue with Good Old Tails, the rescue founded by former ToH director Megan Powers. She tested postive for heartworm, and Tails of Hope wanted to help defray the costs. We did a t-shirt fundraiser for her and were able to donated $800 towards her care.
Bunny is currently in foster care awaiting her forever home!
Red was pulled from the Logan County, WV pound by the wonderful folks at the Paws Squad. He had the worst case of scabies the vet had ever seen, and needed to have his leg amputated. Tails of Hope donated $500 towards his care. See the next pic for his "after" shot...
Red - AFTER!
This is Red after undergoing weeks of medical care. He was transported to his new adoptive mom via Pilots N Paws and is now living the good life. We hear the loss of his leg hasn't slowed him down a bit!
May and Princess
May and Princess are two gorgeous German Shepherd girls who were dumped at the Henderson County, NC shelter. Neither had use of her back legs. The folks at the shelter knew they wanted to help these girls and they received immediate vet care. Tails of Hope paid what was left of the vet bill after private donations, in the amount of $176. See next photo for May and Princess now...
May and Princess with foster dad
May and Princess were diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy--not a great prognosis, but both of these girls still have a lot of life in them! A wonderful foster dad stepped up to care for May and Princess. He is focused on providing the best quality of life for these girls until they leave this earth. Here they are getting a little assistance with walking, with their new foster dad.
Raleigh has been hit by a car twice, and didn't get any medical care the first time. She was abandoned by her family to a kill shelter, almost lost her hind leg, is completely incontinent and has had 4 surgeries now including the loss of her tail--yet she is still so loving. Tails of Hope donated $250 to help defray her vet bills.
Raleigh continues to improve under the loving care of her foster mom.
Rocky was dumped at the Logan County, WV shelter, and was so traumatized that he wouldn't let the vet get near him to try to help him. Through the love and patience of a foster mom who drove many hours to get him, Rocky is now receiving the care and love he deserves. Tails of Hope donated $100 towards his vet bills.
Rocky will continue to progress and heal as he learns to trust people again.
This was the condition of Samuel's leg when he was brought into the Columbus County, NC shelter. It was clear his leg needed to be amputated, and Tails of Hope stepped in and donated $250 towards the surgery.
We don't yet have any post-surgery pics of Samuel, but isn't he a handsome, brave boy?
Senior boy Toby was hit by a car and rushed to the vet by the Paws Squad. Tails of Hope donated $200 towards the surgery needed to help him.
Dr. K performed ER surgery on Toby. We'll update you on his recovery as we know more.
