Sponsor These Shelter Animals & Bring Them to Safety

The animals featured here are some of the hundreds Homeward Trails is asked to rescue each week. Space and money are the greatest barriers to us saying yes to each request. As a supporter of HT, you can help a great deal by making a donation to offset the costs to rescue one of these animals. On average, it costs approximately $150 to rescue each dog and $100 to rescue each cat. This includes basic vet care provided by the shelters, fuel for transport, staff time, additional vaccines and housing once they arrive at HT.

We are now offering our wonderful family of HT supporters the opportunity to donate to a specific animal and help us bring him/her to safety before time runs out. Every donation will save the life of a specific animal…and any donations over the amount needed will be applied to others in need.

Please, consider a tax-deductible donation today to help these animals. They deserve a 2nd chance at life. And together, we can give them that.

Lully was rescued in 2014 in Huanchaquito at New Years Eve, apparently another bigger,also very frightened dog had attacked her during the fireworks. Both dogs, terrorized by the noise,tried to escape and Lully got her leg caught in something,it was broken when she was rescued.
So far she’s had 4 operations, the first to close the wounds on her neck and face and to try to save the ear, the second(2 days later) to mend the fracture on her right leg, the third was a reconstructive operation on her face and neck to try and save the tissue and muscle of her ear,but the left ear had to be amputated, the fourth operation a few weeks later was to try and save her ear canal,which was not possible,the ear is closed up. During the operation an older fracture was detected,which prevented her leg from healing and setting properly. But Lully adapted well to her condition and runs and plays like a healthy dog.

Bruno was rescued in Buenos Aires(part of Trujillo, Peru) in very sad and deplorable conditions, he was very thin,with  several open wounds on his body.  The wounds suggested that he was used to train fighting dogs. Bruno still has some scars on his face and he is missing his left eye .
When rescued off the streets,he was very shy and hardly moving around out of fear that the other dogs at the shelter would hurt him. With some TLC from a good samaratin in Peru, Bruno has transformed his fear into self trust and nobility,he is very loving,sweet and patient.

After trying several things with her own vet Tommy’s situation became critical and emergency hospitalization at a 24 hour specialized facility was recommended.

Tommy spent 3 nights at the vet before he was able to pass all the stool with the help of fluids, medication and round the clock care. Please help us cover the huge unexpected cost of Tommy’s emergency care. We know this sweet boy is worth every penny!

We are working with a Thai rescue organization to help save dogs that have been spared from the dog meat trade. These dogs have lived their entire lives jammed into small crates with several other dogs. They have been treated like objects, not animals. They have lived their entire lives in fear and at risk of being slaughtered at any moment.

These dogs were confiscated by the government as they were being illegally smuggled over the border, crammed in tiny cages in the sweltering heat with no food, water, or space to move. The worst part is that when dogs are eaten in that area of the world, it is believed that the more pain the animal is in when they die, the tastier the meat. These dogs were saved from a fate of horrendous torture. Despite this, they are just amazing dogs.

This is an extremely expensive rescue as we need to transport these dogs from Thailand, pay for vetting and also prepare for the extensive training and rehabilitaiton they will need once they arrive.

Please help us offset this huge expense and help us give these dogs a second chance at life!

UPDATE: Emma is a young kitten who came to us from a rural WV shelter.  She had a bad upper respiratory infection and urinary tract infection.  Her cold quickly cleared up but she kept squatting in the litter box and the normal UTI meds weren’t helping.  She had an ultrasound and we were told she has a mass on her bladder and needs surgery.  She went to another clinic who first took a second ultrasound and required a radiology consult to see what surgery can do to help her.  Surprisingly, they didn’t find any any mass and said more bloodwork was needed.  That has also come back inconclusive.  We are now told little Emma needs to now see an internal medicine specialist!

We’ve already spent the money raised for her surgery on the first three vets and the specialist consult alone costs $215!  If there is need for surgery that will cost us even more.  We know Emma’s worth every dollar so please consider a donation to help us get her the care she needs!

It costs $700 to cure one dog of heartworm, more than shelters & rescues can afford. So, sadly, heartworm is a death sentence for many dogs in shelters.

 

But you can help.  By making a contribution of $5, $10, or more together we can raise the funds to treat and cure dogs infected with heartworm.

Roughly 30% of dogs in rural shelters have heartworm.  Heartworm is a parasite transmitted by mosquitos.  Left untreated, the worms migrate into the dog’s heart and lungs and destroy these organs.  Luckily, there’s treatment to kill these parasites and dogs cured of heartworm live long and healthy lives.

But because the treatment is expensive for shelters and rescue groups, heartworm can be a death sentence for dogs in rural shelters.

Please help change this.  For every $700 raised by this razoo, Homeward Trails can rescue a heartworm infected dog, kill the worms with treatment and give this dog a new life.  Please help.  Please share this razoo so we can save more lives!  thank you!
