Sat/Sun 8.20 & 8.21 for Azlin & Dusty


Have you heard sweet Azlin’s story? This lovely chocolate lab girl was brought into rescue just a month ago. She had an injured leg. Sadly, her injury had started healing incorrectly and Azlin was in a lot of pain. After several vet consults, we opted to have Azlin’s rear leg amputated. It was a costly surgery, but we definitely made the right decision. Azlin is back to being a happy go lucky girl who zooms around her foster mom’s yard – only having three legs does not slow this sweet girl down! You can see photos of Azlin and read more about her online here:  Our other passenger is a very chocolate lab pup named Dusty. Dusty & his sister, Sandy, were supposed to come to rescue a few weeks ago but sadly, Sandy passed away the night before transport. We were incredibly concerned about her cause of death and canceled the transport. Sandy’s necropsy report is back and inconclusive BUT the vets were able to rule out many of the diseases that typically plague shelter pets. Sweet Dusty has spent the last two weeks on quarantine “hold” being watched very closely and is totally healthy. This sweet pup is ready to make his way to rescue and start learning about life as a much loved family pup. Can you help us move both of this babies up the road this weekend?
