7 PUPS WHO’VE OVERCOME DOG FIGHTING TO FIND THEIR FOREVER HOMES

One year ago, 367 pit bulls were rescued from what was said to be the second-largest dog fighting bust in the country’s history. On the anniversary of last year’s bust, we wanted to present some of the stories of those dogs who have turned their lives around. Find out more about these dogs rehabilitation and the remarkable  volunteers who helped them here. 

Rabbit emergency!

No name bunny begging for food after his bath. :) *For everyone giving me advice on bathing rabbits. I’m well aware rabbits cannot be in water. I was given advice by a qualified vet to wipe them down with a warm, wet cloth.They were so dirty their wounds were on the verge of infection. I would never put a rabbit in water. Thanks for your concern but please ask before assuming. The rabbits are all fine.*

I mainly focus on rescuing rats but these rabbits were in a seriously dangerous situation.Please share this post so others can see it. To view my website click here

 Today, August 27, I encountered a serious problem. As I was visiting family outside of the city I decided to go along to a vet trip for their dog. I wanted to see how their vet was and the differences between the vets I have been to. While sitting in the waiting room a very angry woman walked into the vet clinic. She had a small crate, I was thinking she had a small cat or kitten in the crate. She then started yelling and swearing at the receptionist saying she had issues with her three rabbits.

  She said when she adopted them she thought they were all males but they were not. She was furious and saying she did not want a litter of rabbits and she could not deal with the rabbits any longer. She said she couldn’t find them a home. Neutering and spaying rabbits is VERY expensive, this woman obviously did not want to pay for the animals she carelessly bought. She continued to say one was sick, and was attacked by one of the other rabbits. All of this went on for about 15 minutes. The receptionist offered the best advice she could but the woman refused to listen to anything. 

  The woman then said something very disturbing which is the reason why these rabbits are now with me. She told the receptionist if they won’t take them and rehome them ( most vet clinics will not do this) she wants them euthanized. The receptionist then explained that they will not do that and they unfortunately cannot rehome her animals and she will have to take them to some sort of shelter. The woman grabbed the carrier viciously and told the receptionist she didn’t need her help and she will just let them go in the woods. She quickly walked out the door and I followed her and asked if I could take them. She agreed and I now have three beautiful rabbits. 

  I rushed home as soon as I got them and found out they are infact all male. If you research male rabbits you will find tons of information about raging hormones. These boys need to be neutered. One of the boys has been bitten a few times and seems to have a respiratory illness. As soon as I let them out of the tiny crate they did start fighting. Rabbit fights can be very brutal and even deadly. They were also very dirty and in very poor condition, they were not fed properly at all. As I already have a rabbit of my own I had to modify his large C&C cage to fit 3 rabbits, and my rabbit is living in a regular rabbit cage at the moment. This is not ideal but it will do for now.

  The problem is I cannot afford the proper vet care they need. I only took them in because their lives were at risk and at least they will be safe with me until I can come up with the money. On top of their vet bills they also need basic accessories like proper cages, food, toys and accessories. Rabbit care is very expensive and I already have quite a few rats that are getting medical attention that is also expensive. Just the care for these rabbits alone will cost me over $1000.00. 

  I would like to take them to the vet I take my rabbit ( and past rescue rabbit) to. I want to make sure they will get great care. The exam for one rabbit will be $85.00 + tax, and the neuter will be $298.00 + tax. This is not including any pain medication, or the medical care for the sick rabbit. I may even find out the other two have other problems as well. Over all without tax or medication their neuter will be $1,149.00 for all three of them. The donation goal is $1600.00 because I believe that should cover their neuters with the tax and medication added.

  These rabbits were terrified and are already warming up to me, but they are not very friendly. I can see why she couldn’t find a home for them, but I am willing to do everything I can to make them loving comfortable pets. If I can raise enough money to get them the medical care they need I will keep all three of them as my own, unless I find a loving forever home once they are healthy and friendly. Rabbits are very sensitive animals, they have been through enough fear and stress, I do not want to have to rehome them again anytime soon.

If you can donate anything please do. You can send your donation to haiirokokoro@hotmail.com via paypal. Every little bit helps, thank you for reading their story. :)

PLEASE SHARE!

We’ve been getting calls from loving families falling on hard times with companion parrots in need of emergency care.

This puts us in a bind. We WANT birds to stay with the families that love them, but financially, we’ll go under if we said yes to everyone. That’s where you can help. 

Many of us know what it’s like to endure barren times financially. We’re hoping with your help, we can say to families enduring hardship, “Ok, send your bird over to our vet.”

Project Green Cross is derived from the American Red Cross, borrowing from their mission statement:

 ”No Feather Left Behind’s, Project Green Cross prevents and alleviates avian suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of our veterinarians, volunteers, and the generosity of donors.”

To see updates on the birds we have helped, check out No Feather Left Behind’s Facebook page.  

Our vet partners are Backos Bird Clinic and Broward Avian & Exotic, FL.

Thank you!

Happy 1 year rescue anniversary, Samuel!

From Veal Crate to Sanctuary: The Beautiful Rescue Story of Samuel the Calf 

After defying all odds of ending up at the slaughterhouse, Samuel was given a second chance at life, and he is certainly making the most of this opportunity at his new home, Gaia Sanctuary.
Capturing the hearts of people from all over the world, Samuel and his incredible story allows us to see how intelligent and emotionally complex farm animals really are. Rescues like Samuel’s, while they remind us of the cruel and barbaric practices taking place each and every day, simultaneously give us hope of the beautiful world we can create when we start to see animals as our friends and not as our food.
It’s obvious when you look at Samuel’s lust for life that he doesn’t want to die. He wants to live just like the rest of us. He wants to feel love and experience friendship. He wants to be free to eat, play, and sleep as he pleases, and thankfully, now he can.
Samuel was born into an industry which does not value the life of each individual animal. The almost inevitable fate of a calf like him is to spend their few short months on this planet confined in tiny veal crates, near to starvation, unable to walk, and crying out for their mothers.
Samuel was born a twin, and twins born into the industrialized farming industry are seen as surplus as they are often smaller and weaker than their sibling, and farmers do not want to spend money raising them. This would usually result in slaughter in the first few weeks of life, but in a strange twist of fate, this same fact ended up being the very thing that saved him. As the farmer did not consider Samuel’s life to have any value, he agreed to let him be rescued by Gaia Sanctuary, an animal rescue located nearby.
Like all calves born into the dairy industry, Samuel was torn away from his mother just hours after birth and confined to a tiny crate, only just big enough to stand up and turn around in. Scared and unaware of what was happening, he and all of the other calves in the farm cried endlessly to be reunited with their mothers. When the rescuers arrived to take Samuel away to his new life, he saw them and immediately tried to escape through the cage.
Sadly, his twin brother was to suffer a different fate as the farmer would not agree to release them both. With a heavy heart, they put Samuel into the van and headed back to the sanctuary leaving his brother and all the other crying calves behind with the heartbreaking knowledge of what their future held.
Having been awaiting an early trip to the slaughter house, Samuel was extremely underweight and in a seriously poor condition. The milk he was supposed to have from his mother to nourish him and build strength in the first few hours and days after birth was instead being collected for human consumption. Thankfully, with a lot of love, care, and bottle feeding, Samuel began to recover and gain strength. He was ready to begin enjoying life outside of a veal crate.
Since his rescue, Samuel has gained a huge following of people who have completely fallen in love with his gentle, inquisitive, and fun nature. To see a cow come from such a desperate situation, enjoying the sunshine, wagging his tail as he eats the fresh grass, and springing around with excitement when he feels happy is a reminder of what life should be like for all animals. Thanks to the photographs and videos from the sanctuary, we have been able to catch an intimate glimpse into Samuel’s life as he grows up.
It has been an emotional roller coaster for all involved to say the least, especially after complications with a hernia operation left him bedridden, unable to go outside in fear of infection to the wound. Having been cooped up indoors, watching Samuel return to the field which he so loved was a truly touching moment.
Captured on video, Samuel was so excited to be outside again in the sunshine, with the grass under his feet, and his new friends in sight once more, he began to leap around with excitement, running around the pen like a child in a playground.
Samuel has befriended many different animals at the sanctuary including goats, dogs, sheep, chickens, and of course, humans. He has inspired change in the way people view cows, with many of his new found fans pledging to give up meat and dairy after falling in love with his special story, a story which has now been made into a beautiful children’s book.
Being able to watch Samuel grow from a scared, lonely, and debilitated veal calf, into a gentle, loving, and friendly creature, able to explore the world without fear of abuse or torment, reminds us all of how different the future of this planet could be if we continue to reject the widespread exploitation of animals.

URGENT

Chicago area, but transport can be arranged. 

Vanessa is 10 years old, dumped her by her owners, and is shy, so she is not going to get much time here before they euthanize her.

She is not available for direct adoption, but you can foster her or foster to adopt. Contact one of the approved Homeward Bound rescues (link is in the photo) and mark your request “URGENT”. If you contact the CACC Cat Transfer Team, they will help you with the process.

If you can’t foster her yourself, please share her so that someone else who can foster her will see her.

Please pledge if you can, because often rescues are more likely to pull a cat if they know that part of her care is covered, since their finances are stretched so thin.
