DO NOT DONATE

From Lori Clark

MO Min Pin Rescue recently brought in 21 Min Pins and two Feist from an owner surrender. The dogs range in age from 5 to 15+ and are in varying stages of health. We desperately need funds to help with vetting these dogs!

The vet bills are rolling in on these dogs. Many of them have been very neglected. All of them needed their core shots, the only ones not needing dental were the one or two without any teeth left at all. A couple of the unspayed females have mammary tumors so severe, they are not able to operate at this time and they will go into hospice foster care. One has suspected liver cancer and will receive a biopsy next week to determine. All of them have hookworms and/or other internal parasites. One boy has been neutered so far and he has testicular cancer. Many of the females who we were told had been spayed have no spay scars, so nearly all dogs need to be spayed and/or neutered. Several are on antibiotics from things such as open/ruptured cysts, terribly skin infections and allergies from fleas. The list of issues goes on and on. If you can afford anything at all, please do! Please share everywhere so that we can continue helping all of these dogs see a brighter tomorrow!

More Info

It has been a very stressful week. All in all, there were 25 dogs to rescue. It's a sad situation. The owner's husband passed away, and she has to vacate their rural TN home. She's moving to KY to be with her sister while they care for their mother who is dying from cancer. While I don't condone trying to take care of this many dogs, I thank her for caring enough for them to reach out for help saving them.

One dog rescued on Saturday has gotten loose from her foster home and has not been spotted since Sunday. One of the dogs passed quietly in her sleep before she could leave on transport. I somehow believe Chocky didn't want to leave the only home she's ever known and chose to go peacefully in familiar surroundings. One dog found her forever home with a wonderful volunteer who was delivering donated dog food!

Still, that leaves 23 dogs in our care to get vetted and hopefully adopted. All are heartworm negative. Many have serious dental concerns, two are blind or nearly blind. One has seizures. Some have tumors. Only a handful have been spayed or neutered. They were all completely loaded with fleas.

Yet, in spite of everything, not one dog tried to bite, or growl at the volunteers while being poked and prodded for heartworm tests or vaccinations. They're so very trusting of humans, and seek love, affection and most of all companionship. There is NOTHING as rewarding as seeing them wag their little nubbin or smile up at you.

We are forever indebted to so many people who have helped, and continue to help, make this journey for them meaningful and I call that a rescue success.
