Benny

We where told by the shelter he was thrown out of a 2 story buliding and broke both of his front legs.  He's still in the healing process so we'll up date with after pictures as soon as his casts come off.  He's a sweet heart.
UPDATE!! Benny was Adopted

Bitsy

Bisty was found wandering around loose in an auto repair store outside with just a little dog house for shelter during our heavy rain season we had a few months ago.  She was almost run over because she was running loose around the drive way.  My friend inquired about the puppy and they said someone gave them the puppy and that they didn't want her.  She was skin and bones, had a skin condition mange. A few weeks later, because she was not vaccinated, Bitsy contacted Parvo.

Blinky

Blinky came into the West Valley Shelter as a stray.  He had a severe eye injury.  After being there a few days, the shelter decided his eye was to injured to hearl on it's own and removed his eye.  He was in isolation for a few weeks because of his injury. Within a few short days he was red listed and needed to be rescued soon.  We rescued him and he soon became a very happy little guy. From the looks of his eye injury, it appeared he was bitten in the face by a larger dog. After his eye healed he found a wonderful forever home with a loving family and a few dog buddies.


Bubbles

Bubbles was an owner turn-in at the shelter.  Her owners couldn't afford to remove a large tumor on her under belly.  She also needed a teeth cleaning and some teeth where removed.  Nobody wanted to adopt her because of the tumor and the expense.  Her time was running out so we rescued her and took her to the vet to have the surgery to remove the tumor. Bubbles was special, our founder, Ana, couldn't resist adopting her!

Buster

Buster came into the shelter with a broken hip.  He was in isolation for a long time and his time was up.  Nobody wanted to adopt him because of his injury.  We rescued him in the nick of time, but his back leg had severe nerve damage, so his leg had to be amputated. This never slowed Buster down! He can run faster on three legs than most dogs! Buster was adopted into s=a loving home.

Captain


Captain had a severely torn ligament. He would walk a few feet and just start screaming. After a while, he refused to use his leg Dr. Slaton tried to save his leg by immobilizing it, but that did not work. We decided that since he was already living as a tripod, the doctor suggested we amputate his leg to stop his pain.

Captain never ever looked back!! He is the fastest dog on three feet : ) From the time his leg was amputated and on, Captain has been happy and pain-free!!  Even though he was older (9 or 10), a wonderful family adopted him - Captain's new father was a captain, too - a fire Captain!!!  This was meant to be.

That's not the end....Now he even has his own facebook page : ) You can follow Captain and his brother Freddy and sister Vicki's follies on their Facebook page!!!! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Captain-N-Freddie/299161023472381?ref=ts

Charger & Steeler

Charger and Steeler where both exposed to Parvo.  They came from a back yard breeder who just didn't want them anymore.  They came from a littler of 3 puppies and one of the puppies died. It is not easy to survive Parvo, but these strong willed fellows did just that. The have both been adopted.
Cherry

Cherry came into the shelter as a stray. Her owners never came to get her.  She had cherry eye and nobody wanted to adopt her because the surgery is expensive.  The shelter was running out of space and she was running out of time, so we rescued her and got her all fixed up.  She has now been adopted into a loving home and is considered a special needs dog because she will probably need eye drops for the rest of her life because she has a condition called dry eye (caused by her cherry eye.)
Copper

Copper came into the East Valley Shelter as a stray and looked like he was hit by a car.  He needed to have surgery to fix his hip. He was placed in isolation at the shelter because of his injury and no other rescue group wanted to pull him because of the cost of the surgery. His days were numbered so his we decided to rescue him.  We brought him right to our vet and he removed his hip joint and sewed it back together.  He did not need any cage rest and was up and running in a few days. Copper has been adopted into a loving home.
Cupid

Cupid was at the East Valley Shelter a very long time after he came in as a stray with a broken leg.  We do not know how he broke his leg, but he was in isolation and nobody could see him.  The few people that knew about him where also in rescue, but nobody was jumping to get him because they knew his surgery would be expensive.  We decided to rescue him before it was to late.  You couldn't ask for a sweeter dog than Cupid.
Foxy

Foxy's owners turned her into the shelter because she was injured and they could not afford to vet care.  She had a pinched nerve and needed cage rest.  She had lived her whole life outside and was not allowed in the house until she injured herself.  The family didn't give her enough time to heal and she reinjured herself. She bit someone in the family because she was in pain, so they dumped her off at the shelter.  Nobody was interested in adopting her because they didn't know the extent of her injury and the vets at the shelter thought she might need surgery.  
Honey

Honey came with a horrific injury to her legs. Skin was missing and the bone was broken. It appeared that her leg got stuck in a gate. We had her bone set and healed perfectly. Honey was adopted by one of our special volunteers.
Kenny

Kenny is a little 1year old Chihuahua/Papillon mix who was abandoned by his owner because he sustained serious injuries. According to Dr. Daniel, of Westlake Village Animal Hospital, his two front legs were severely fractured, and he had NEVER received medical attention for OVER TWO MONTHS. He was left to suffer without any help from a veterinarian.

The fracture was so severe, his legs literally formed a 90 degree angle with the ground. When he attempted to walk – and because the fractures were complete, the lower half of his legs simply lay on the ground.

Because he received no medical attention, Kenny’s right leg began to necrose - the tissues were dying at the foot and ankle. By miracle alone, Dr. Slaton was able to save the right leg from amputation. 
We were able to help Kenny G with the support of a group of angels who followed Kenny on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Uniting-for-Little-Kenny-G/115778515185525 

These devoted Facebook fans/guardian angels not only contributed every penny we needed (and it was a lot), they also followed his recovery and wished him well throughout his entire recovery!! They continue, to this day, to check in and follow Kenny's new adventures in his loving new home!! You can follow, too : )


Kirby

Kirby is very special. He was our first rescue dog and my first ever foster dog!!!! I fostered him through both of his knees being repaired - they had severe luxating patellas - and severe malnutrition and scabies.  This was in the days before Chipins existed or Facebook, so I didn't know how to raise money for him - with no options, I actually went into my savings and paid the humongous bill for this expensive surgery! I did it because I loved Kirby - he was the most neglected dog I had ever seen. He had severe scabies, which caused intense scratching that literally took most of his hair off and infected his skin terribly. He also had the worst case of luxating patellas I had ever seen and was literally skin and bones. Despite this, he was the sweetest little fellow you could ever meet and he LOVED to play fetch!!!!!! It took months, but Kirby recovered beautifully and was adopted by a loving couple!!!!  He was really the start of One Dog Rescue and my commitment to fostering unfortunate medical needs babies!! We will never forget Kirby!!!!
Lady

Levi first came into the shelter as a stray and he had a micro-chip and the shelter called his family and they never came down to pick him up.  So after the 4 day waiting period he was available for adoption.  He was adopted for 4 days and returned because they said he was screaming in pain. The pain was caused by Kidney Stones.  They where to large for him to pass so he needed to have surgery right away, but instead of his new owners bring him to a vet they bought him back to the shelter and said they didn't want him and couldn't afford the surgery.  Nobody wanted him because the surgery was very expensive so they called us the day they where going to put him to sleep.  They said they could no longer keep him alive because he was in to much pain and he could not pee.  So we rushed down there and rescued him and brought him right away to our vet who then did the surgery to remove his Kidney Stones.  
Levi

Louie came into the East Valley Shelter as a stray.  He was put into isolation right away because he was injured.  It looked like he had a rope or cord warped around his back and he tired to run away and crawl under a fence and split opened his back to get the cord away.  The shelter stapled up his back and kept him in isolation in which the general public could not see him.  He was running out of time so we decided to rescue him.  After being in fost care for a few days he came down with kennel cough, ring worm.
Little Bit

She came into the shelter as an owner turn in because of her skin condition called Demodex Mange.  It is a mite that grows under the skin and causes their hair to fall out.  It is not contagious to people or other animals.  She hardly had any hair  on her body and she was put in isolation and a few of the people that noticed her didn't want to adopt her because of her skin condition they thought it might be to expensive to treat.  So we had to rescue her before it was to late.  After a few months of treatment her hair started to grow in nicely as you can see by the pictures.
Louie

He came from the South Central Shelter as a stray.  Someone said they found him on the street with a broken pelvis.  People came to see him, but once they found out he might need surgery for his broken pelvis nobody was interested in adopting him.  We knew his time would be short at the shelter because nobody wanted him.  So we rescued him and brought him right to our vet with a few weeks of cage rest he's back to normal and running around like a normal dog.

Minnie

Minnie was turned into the shelter by her owners they said she was to old around 7 yrs old and needed a dental very badly and had 3 hernia's that where never treated or removed.  Nobody wanted her because of the needed medical attention and they said most of all her age and her time was up in an over crowded shelter.
Mouse

Mouse came into the shelter with a mammory tumor and very much needed  dental.  A few weeks later a tumor was growing on her toe and her toe had to be removed.
Peaches

Peaches owners turned her into the shelter because she bit someone.  She was being teased by a small child and that is why she bit them.  She was petrafied at the shelter and was skin and bones.  As you can see by the new photo she has gained weight and was adopted into a wonderful home.
Persious

Persious came into the shelter with a broken leg she is only 6 weeks old. Everyone wanted her because she was so tiny and cute, but nobody could afford to fix her broken leg.  So the shelter was going to put her to sleep.  We couldn't allow that to happen so we went down to the shelter and rescued her.    
Scampy

Scampy's owners turned him into the shelter because he had skin condition called Scaves.  Which is contagious to people and dogs.  It's very treatable, but his owners couldn't afford to take him to the vet. Nobody wanted to adopt him also because they where afraid they would catch it.  
Scruffy

Scruffy came into the shelter with a serious broken leg that need a pin and plate put in nobody wanted him because the extent of his injuries to his leg.  They told us at the shelter if nobody adopted him that day he would be put to sleep.  He was supposed to be put down a week earlier, but one of the shelter staff begged to give him an extra week because he was so sweet.  Knowing that day would have been his last day when we walked out of the shelter we couldn't go out empty handed so we rescued him on his last day.
Snowflake

Snowflake came into the shelter all matted & skin and bones and had a skin problem called scabies which is contagious to people and other dogs.

Squggie

Squggie came into the shelter with a broken leg and nobody would adopt him because they thought it would be to expensive to fix his leg and his time was up.  We rescued him in the nick of time. 
Stuie

Stuie came into the shelter with a broken leg and she is only 6 weeks old.  Most people don't want to adopt dogs or puppies with broken legs so they don't even ask about them.  Her time was up and she only needed a few weeks of cage rest and she was fine.
Weebles

Weebles came from a back yard breeder that was going to dump her off at the shelter because they said she was sick and nobody would pay to buy her.  We intervened and took her into our rescue.  It turned out through a blood test that she had distemper as a puppy and survived it.
