Often the word “rescue” is tossed around loosely like yesterday’s salad.  “Thank you for rescuing me from the boring meeting!” Or “Phew, I was rescued from that miserable date!” With K-9 Lifesavers, rescue truly means the difference between life and death.

Many of the dogs who we save on a daily basis come from horrid conditions with little chance for a future, and some of them are extreme cases. Our Critical Care Fund was established to save these precious souls.  Every dollar donated to our fund goes directly to the support of saving those who need extraordinary care, including some that require special medical treatments. Sometimes that means removing tumors, orthopedic surgeries, heartworm treatments, dental surgeries, critical care, and so much more. Every donation to our Critical Care fund is truly lifesaving – these innocent creatures would not survive without the procedures and services the fund is able to support. We cannot thank you enough for saving the lives of our Critical Care survivors – you are heroes!!


Needing Extraordinary Care: Case and Cannon

The two cuties vying for your attention and support this week are Cannon and Case. They are both what one would call a "fixer upper". When we pulled them from shelter, we were told they are sweet, vetted, 1 year old siblings. Well it turned out to be slightly (a lot) far from the true. Both arrived to us infected with parvo (which they successfully survived with the help of several days in emergency care). Next we found out that Case (who is at least 7 years old, definitely not 1!) has ingrown testicle and needs complicated and expensive neuter surgery, and did we mention that he has severe dental issues and needs several teeth removed as well. At this point, we are $2000 in emergency vet visits for these two, and Case is looking at another $600+ in neuter and dental surgery.

Needing Extraordinary Care: Nixon

Nixon is a gorgeous boy who arrived to us from NC. This boy is an amazing sweetheart who luckily for him found a great home already, but we are still grappling with his medical bills. He required complicated neuter, leg x-rays which turned up old, badly healed injury and the rescue is still covering the cost of his hearworm treatment. Please consider donating to help us offset the cost of saving his life.   Fundraising page link is: https://www.razoo.com/story/D4s2bf you can donate through our Paypal button located at the bottom of the page

Needing Extraordinary Care: Mr. Tucker

Mr. Tucker is an adorable beagle gentleman who is gentle, sweet, and has big silky ears. He is wonderful with other dogs and people, and did we mention his big brown eyes. Mr. Tucker is sadly also heartworm positive. His heartworm is at early stages luckily, but he needs heartworm treatment ASAP before it turns more serious. Please, help us get this guy back to full health.   Fundraising page link is: https://www.razoo.com/story/Thx5xf you can donate through our Paypal button located at the bottom of the page


Needing Extraordinary Care: Pup Joe

Pup Joe is a cutie who arrived into our care a month ago. He is a total sweetheart who loves to snuggle, give kisses and gets along well with everyone. He is smart and full of life and he is also very very sick. Today he was diagnosed with ectopic ureter causing hydronephrosis. Our vet informed us that he will need a $5000 surgery at a specialized vet. With the surgery, Joe has excellent prognosis for recovery and for full, long happy life and pretty much guaranteed recovery. Without the surgery, Joe will be die within couple months as his organs fail. We are not ready to give up on Joe. He is one of the sweetest pups we have right now, and really really really good boy, but we have been hit with medical bills really hard since January. Please help us save Joe's life. He is a really amazing puppy and deserves a chance.  Fundraising page link is: https://www.razoo.com/story/Tv5b9g you can donate through our Paypal button located at the bottom of the page
