Holly's Health Challenge

Holly needs our help! This normally spunky senior cattledog has been in foster care for almost a year. She's an amazingly fun girl and one of our favorites, but her age (7+) has so far kept her from being adopted. Trust me - people don't know what they're missing in this wonderful companion dog!
But yesterday our active girl was in obvious pain, so we whisked her off to Monroe Animal Care Hospital. Dr. Wise immediately put her on fluids, pain medication and started diagnostic tests. Holly wasn't getting better. Exploratory surgery done today revealed a small piece of towel or fabric in her small intestine, something she must have ingested recently. Unfortunately damage was extensive - Holly needed 21 inches of her small intestine removed.
The  estimate for Holly's treatment, surgery and follow-up care is $1,200. Your donations and support are appreciated. We promise to provide the love, hugs, and everything else Holly needs to get better.
This awesome girl has much love left to give someone. Please help us put the smile back on Holly's face again!

Blossom's New Life

Here's a picture of Blossom with her new family. She's been in our adoption program since March and we're thrilled she finally found a wonderful home! Thanks also to Melanie for traveling to Petsmart for a late evening adoption so this girl could meet up with her new family before the weekend. We love WAG happy endings!

Another CT adoption

Time to wrap up the story of another WAG adventure to a Dog Days adoption event in Connecticut. Although many of our dogs found wonderful loving homes, half of them returned to GA with us, so we still have some very important work ahead to create happily-ever-after stories for these very deserving pets.
This was our last visit to Dog Days for adoptions, but it's been a rewarding experience. The most amazing part of the adventure was the partnerships we enjoyed along the way. Some generous fosters stepped up in GA to keep dogs for us prior to our journey. As always, our friends at Pound Puppies 'n Kittens worked with us getting rescue dogs ready for the trip. WAG's CT friends and Dog Days volunteers welcomed us again with open arms, worked diligently during the event promoting our dogs and celebrated our successes each day. Jim and Terry Rodgers did their usual flawless job of transporting us safely to and from CT. Hard working WAG volunteers busted their tails before and during the event caring for the dogs. And lots of support from our fans along the way. So I'd call that an unqualified success story!
A little more work to do wrapping up loose ends, then on to the next project. But first, a huge THANK YOU to everyone for your encouragement and interest in helping us save lives!
