Help Our Dogs In Need
Portabella Needs Your Help to Heal
Portabella had a rough time after her routine spay surgery. We picked her up from the shelter spay clinic and a couple days later we had her at the emergency hospital because her spay incision became infected and completely opened up. She needed surgical correction and a drain placed. Unfortunately her problems didn't end there - after surgery she couldn't stop bleeding. We are awaiting results from blood tests that will determine if she has a blood clotting disorder... meanwhile she is sporting a fun red bandage wrap and relaxing comfortably until we can figure out and treat her issues.
Ranger Broke His Leg, Needs Surgery
This super cute puppy, Ranger, was rescued from a County shelter - unable to walk on his left hind leg. Our vet investigated further and determined that he actually has a fractured bone, complicated by an infection in the knee joint. He will definitely need surgery and recovery rehab but first have to wait for some test results to come back from the lab to determine what type of infection we are dealing with and how to treat it. We are keeping him comfortable until we can move forward with fixing the leg.
Puppy Rescued in Critical Condition
Little "Bun" (and her brother) arrived at a City shelter in terrible condition, found living on the street we can only imagine what the first 8 weeks of their life looked like. The shelter asked us to take the pups and as soon as we picked them up we knew Bun was not doing well. We went straight to the emergency vet where she is currently hospitalized. Malnourished, hypoglycemic, dehydrated, anemic - her little body was shutting down from neglect and improper care at such a young age. Although considered critical upon arrival, she is fighting to survive and is already doing so much better. We hope she can be well enough soon to be released from the hospital. Please help us to help Bun survive!
Molly's Massive Mammary Tumor
Molly arrived at a City shelter as a stray and nobody came to claim her. Filthy and matted, the shelter did their best to clean/groom her and that's when they discovered a huge tumor on her belly. Wags & Walks rescued this sweet, gentle girl from the shelter and will provide her with the medical care that she needs, including surgical removal of the tumor. Please help us help Molly feel better!
While Wags and Walks is committed to helping save dogs in need throughout Los Angeles, we also feel compelled to step up in times of crisis. The abuse and slaughtering of dogs for the Yulin Meat Market has to end. Therefore, Wags and Walks has teamed up with Los Santos Rescue, who is boots on the ground in China, and have dedicated their time fighting the dog meat trade and helping the dogs of China. We have committed to bringing a group of at least 7 dogs to safety and will need to raise the money before they are able to be transported. We will be picking the puppies up from LAX and taking them straight to the vet to be properly treated, vaccinated, and monitored. From here, we will move them to foster homes where they will begin their long road to recovery.
In addition to taking on their medical bills, these pups will need the help of experts and trainers to help the adjust and socialize into their new life.
