Before they come to us our animals experience incredible hardship so they frequently require special care, including extensive surgery, specialty veterinary care, and physical or emotional rehabilitation. For most of our animals, that recovery occurs in a foster home where they can be supported by loving people while they complete their veterinary follow-ups and learn to trust. Below are the animals currently under the supervision of a veterinarian or recovering in a foster home.
P.S. – Foster homes are always needed. If you are interested in fostering, please see our information about fostering here .
Chewbacca – The future continues to look brighter for this guy! They have reconstructed his nasal passages, but some teeth were lost and more surgery may be required. Chewbacca is a sweetheart; he nuzzles and loves to be cuddled. Sassie – “Sassie” came to us through Bullitt County Animal Shelter when she was found with to be suffering from severe oral disease, multiple tumors, heart disease, and seizures. This senior Miniature Pinscher will now be cared for the rest of her life and can begin to heal! Rusty – Rusty came to us malnourished, with a gunshot wound to his face. After 7 months and 7 surgeries, we can say we are (cautiously) optimistic that our boy will have a happy life ahead! Sage – This min pin came to us nearly starved to death. Now after treatment, nutrition and care, Sage is ready to play and enjoy life as she continues to heal in her foster home. Tandy – At just 9 weeks old, Tandy was taken to be euthanized when the local shelter called us to save her. She was unable to properly walk or stand and was diagnosed with Spina Bifida. With proper care and physical therapy her outlook, and attitude, are improving all the time! Lila – This little terrier mix loves to be spoiled with love and treats. Lila is in our hospice program due to congestive heart failure. Treasure – Treasure is in our Hospice program and is thriving with love and veterinary care. Dessa – Dessa has a broken tibia and chest contusions due to blunt force trauma. She was brought to Blue Pearl by individuals who then abandoned her. Vida – Vida was found on the side of the road unable to stand and petrified. She has been bred a lot in her short life (approx. 2 years old) and has given birth in the last few months. She did have a high white count and has been treated for an infection. We told her after having so many babies it was now her turn to be the baby!!!! ♥️ Jolene – The Arrow Fund was contacted by Crestwood Animal Hospital. This little girl was going to be euthanized , per owner request, because she tested positive for Parvo. She is recovering in a foster home now! Hawthorne – Hawthorne is home from Blue Pearl after having the large testicular tumor removed. We will still continue to treat Hawthorne for Babesiosis (a tick borne disease that affects red blood cells) as he recovers from this surgery in his foster home. This sweet baby deserves a chance to love and be loved in return! Echo – This boy came in only weighing 14.8 pounds and was a body scale 1. Thankfully he has gained 2 pounds in the last week. Echo is on a strict feeding schedule due to being so emaciated. He is only allowed small amounts several times a day for his safety. Can you imagine letting this beautiful boy starve? He is only 6 months old and is a precious baby that just loves attention. Euan – This boy continues to amaze us with his will to live! After surviving such trauma over the multiple puncture wounds and then battling being septic – this boy defied the odds! He was finally well enough to neuter and is recovering with his foster. He is responding so well and will be up for adoption soon! Cora – Cora came to us with a flea infested pelt, broken jaw, and eyes matted shut. Cora is now blind. Her jaw surgery is complete and she will go to Crestwood on Monday for bilateral enucleation of her eyes and spay. Then this sweet girl can really rest and heal! . Henrietta – Henrietta came to us in April with multiple fractures and degloving on her back legs. Surgery was performed and external fixators were implanted to stabilize the bone. Once these fixators were removed, she was able to move to her foster home where she can enjoy being a puppy! Henrietta is a teddy bear, and loves to watch TV and the fish! She is getting stronger everyday,! Although she is not medically cleared for adoption yet, we are accepting applications for this sweet darling! Lennox – Diagnosed with Parvo. He is very small, but fighting. He is in ICU isolation at Blue Pearl. Please keep this wee one close to your heart ! London – Diagnosed with Parvo. She is very small, but fighting. She is in ICU isolation at Blue Pearl. Please keep this wee one close to your heart ! Solomon – He is an 11.3 lb, 3 month old pup that was found on the side of the road with blood coming from his nose and mouth and a broken jaw. Because of the extent of his injuries he was must likely going to be euthanized. Vernon – Body Scale 1 of 9 emaciation case. Over 75 large, engorged ticks were taken off of this poor boy. Vernon is so gentle and sweet… He has suffered so… Majesty – This tiny girl is so amazing and purrs so sweetly! She will make someone an exceptional companion. It is so hard to believe that after a little baby like this has been so abused that she is willing to love so strongly. Puck and Oberon – These two kittens were thrown over a 6 ft fence in a box. Puck has a massive hernia. Surgery on Puck to repair the hernia will be as soon as he hits 5 pounds. He will have a much better chance of survival at this weight. Meanwhile Puck and his brother Oberon are being spoiled by his amazing fosters
