We love office visits from our friends at Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network!
Success Stories: Animals that have benefited from the maC.A.R.E.S. Fund!
Sweet Emmy was one of 23 rabbits rescued by Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network from a hoarding situation. When Emmy was rescued she was pregnant and being closely monitored by vets. Sadly, it was determined that the pregnancy was not viable and Emmy was spayed. Thank goodness Red Dog Farm made the decision to spay Emmy because vets discovered that she had a terrible infection from the pregnancy, and was close to going septic. Thanks to the maC.A.R.E.S. Fund, Emmy is now fully recovered and ready for adoption!
Meet Jorah, a recipient of the maC.A.R.E.S. Fund! It appears that prior to being surrendered, he had been exposed to a very serious virus that would wreak havoc on his body. His appetite took a nosedive and, within two months, he lost an astonishing 6 pounds.
The team of veterinary staff and volunteers at Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network worked tirelessly to nurse him back to health. Jorah had to have a feeding tube for a month and was on two different antibiotics for 6 weeks. It was a long and hard fight, but thanks to a dedicated team of supporters Jorah was nursed back to a happy and healthy cat!
Applejacks came to Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network weighing only 85 pounds which is half of what she should have! Due to her condition, Applejacks required a number of tests to rule out diseases or conditions that could have caused her poor condition. Fortunately for her, everything came back negative or normal. The maC.A.R.E.S. Fund was able to help Applejacks get the care she needed so she could beat the odds and survive. Applejacks then began the slow process of learning to learn to eat again. She is now in a loving forever home with two miniature horse buddies to keep her company and all the food she needs and wants.
Poppy, an approximately 5 year old Chihuahua mix, came to Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network when her owners could no longer keep her. She was hit by car and suffered a broken leg and de-gloved left rear leg. The former owner did not understand the severity of her injury and left her in the same bandage for three weeks while keeping her outside. They had hoped to be able to raise the funds for the necessary amputation, but due to the cost and after care required, the end result was owner surrender. After taking her in, Poppy tested heartworm positive. Not only is she now three legged, but she is also hearing impaired. Poppy was a recipient of the maC.A.R.E.S. Fund to help with her veterinary care. Poppy’s issues have not prevented her from living life to the fullest.
Lacie came to Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network with a skin infection, ear infections, eye infections, bladder infection, matted hair, deaf and a giant bladder stone! Thanks to the maC.A.R.E.S. Fund, Lacie received a makeover in more than one way. After several weeks of TLC, veterinary care and a new ‘do’ this gal feels like a new pup despite her age. Perhaps best of all, she has now been adopted so she can live out the rest of her days in a loving home.
