Someone left Emma tied to a fence on a busy street - no food, water, and no concern for what happened to her. Fortunately she was spotted by a good samaritan who called the animal shelter. We couldn't resist Emma's sweet face in the shelter kennels and took her to a WAG foster home where she blossomed.
When Chris and Amy saw Emma's photo on Petfinder they knew she belonged with them - a young couple starting their life together. With Emma now lounging on their sofa, their family is complete.
Mercy was found wandering the countryside, emaciated, weak and bleeding. We'll never know for sure, but suspect that her hind leg became caught in some type of trap. There's no telling how long this girl lay waiting for help that never came. She finally chewed her leg off to escape.
WAG paid for Mercy's amputation and subsequent follow-up treatment. She's now the new member of a happy family with a "sister" German Shepherd and is enjoying life.
In honor of Mercy's courage and determination, WAG started the "Mercy Fund," money set aside specifically for treatment of severely ill and injured animals.
Lila, fka Rosie
Rosie was a sweet pit bull mix pup rescued in 2012. This spunky girl was a little too active for her own good and fell while playing at her foster home, fracturing the growth plate in her rear leg. This injury came at a critical time in Rosie's growth - sdhe needed immediate surgery, or risk ending up with a deformed leg that would need amputating.
Rosie's surgery and follow-up treatment cost nearly $3,000. She was on strict crate rest for six long weeks. But this story has a happy ending. This friendly little pup was adopted by a family, renamed Lila, and is a much-loved member of the family. No question we made the right choice for her!
