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. Hamilton – Hamilton arrived with multiple skull fractures, a damaged eye, and a spring (really!) in his belly. After having his eye and the spring removed we’re looking forward to giving him time to safely heal and get all the love he was previously denied. 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. Kodiak – Kodiak was found in a ditch, unable to walk. He has multiple hip and pelvic fractures and is severely underweight. He underwent surgery to repair the hip fractures and plates were placed to repair his pelvis. Even in pain this giant is so gentle! Sugar Plum – Sugar Plum was rescued in partnership with Kentucky Mutts after she was found to have been shot in the face. She had received no treatment for her wounds. She is heartworm and lyme positive but we are working hard to help her heal! Euan – Sweet boy with numerous puncture wounds. Euan is eating now and after plasma transfusions, his white cell count and platelets have risen some. Sadly, his kidney and liver values are still alarming. We are hoping with time they will improve. It is thought that the severe trauma to his body is the reason. Henrietta – Henrietta is an innocent baby that just wants to live. She is so sweet even though she is so badly hurt…an external fixator was placed on her left tibial/fibula fracture. The fixator will be removed after she is fully healed. Pascal – Pascal was found unresponsive on the side of the road on Easter Sunday in a rural county. Surgery was performed, his back leg was amputated, blood and plasma transfusions were needed. He is getting stronger every day. 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. Lilibet – Lilibet is a senior Corgi mix who came to us with a giant tumor on her leg . Surgery was performed, the large mass was removed. Benign! She also has a kidney stone and is on medication. Surgery may be required. 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. We had only moments to decide… We said yes to baby Jolene and she is in isolation being treated and observed 24 hours a day. Tulip – The Arrow Fund was called by Blue Pearl and asked if we could help this 9 month old beautiful girl with a broken femur, she was going to sadly be euthanized without someone stepping up to help her. She is so sweet and loves attention so much! Hawthorne – This precious, senior Beagle was in a very crowded shelter in Johnson County, Kentucky. We were asked to help him. He is emaciated and is a body scale of 1 out of 9. He has a large mass in the scrotal area, internal and external parasites and sores all over. He is at Blue Pearl now and the plan is to try get him on a feeding plan to address emaciation and malnutrition. We need to build him up and hopefully in a few days he will be strong enough to undergo the intricate surgery to remove that large tumor.
