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 .
Chewbaca – 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. Donovan 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. Sassafras (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! Lucinda Rusty – Rusty came to us malnourished, with a gunshot wound to his face. He underwent multiple surgeries to repair damage to his soft palate and sinus cavity but he hasn’t let that slow him down. This cuddly, playful boy knows he is safe now and the real puppy is starting to appear! Sage – This min pin came to us nearly starved to death. Now, after treatment, nutrition and care, she’s ready to play and enjoy life as she continues to heal in the care of her loving foster home. Tandy – At just 9 weeks old this little girl was taken to be euthanized when the local shelter called us to save her. Her little legs splay out on her, so she was unable to properly walk or stand. With proper care and physical therapy her outlook, and attitude, are improving all the time! Conway – Conway was left out in the cold, was so hungry he had eaten a nail, had been shot with a pellet gun, and had a large undiagnosed mass in his lung. Today he is safe and warm in his foster home while we determine the source of the lung mass and the next steps needed to treat it. Lila – This little terrier mix loves to be spoiled with love and treats. Lila is in our hospice program due to congestive heart failure. Louie Treasure Jane Lilibet Simone Abner Bessie – We were contacted by Muhlenburg County Shelter in Kentucky to help this little girl. She had a large mammary mass that was a low grade carcinoma. We are thrilled to report it had not spread and was removed with good margins. Bessie is now recovering with her amazing fosters Nancy and Steve. 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 and received no treatment for her wounds. She is heartworm and lyme positive but we are working hard to help her heal!
