Help Our Dogs In Need

 

No More Squinting for Ruth!

Sweet Ruth was rescued from the shelter with painful, squinty eyes - we thought it was just her left eye and we were hoping it was something easy to treat with eyedrops.  Unfortunately the issue is affecting both eyes - it is extremely uncomfortable and it is affecting Ruth's vision, this condition can only be corrected surgically.  She has entropion - the upper and lower eyelids roll inwards causing the lashes to rub and irritate her eyes.  It is very dangerous because the rubbing could cause corneal ulcers or permanent damage. Ruth needs a delicate surgery to tack the lids back into the proper position to alleviate her discomfort.  


Harvey's Serious Leg Surgery

Wags & Walks rescued Harvey from the shelter, he was limping and holding up his back right leg.  X-rays showed that he had an old bone fracture that was never attended to so it healed wonky and was causing him discomfort.  Harvey's leg bone needed to be re-broken and set properly by a veterinary surgeon.


Berlin Needs Our Help - Surgery!

Wags & Walks rescue discovered Berlin at the shelter, an unclaimed stray dog with a leg injury causing her to limp with pain.  We knew we had to rescue Berlin and help her get well.  Her injury turned out to be much more serious than we would have thought, requiring urgent surgery to repair her leg to relieve her pain.  The surgery is critical and the recovery process will be intense, she will likely need physical therapy as well.

Everyone that meets Berlin is smitten with her gentle sweet demeanor.  Despite her pain, Berlin always has a smile on her face and is eager to make new friends. Please help us to help Berlin live a pain-free life.


Wags & Walks Saves Meat Market Dogs

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.
Once they are ready, we will post them for adoption and work to find their forever family!


Help Sammy Overcome Crippling Pain

When Wags and Walks got Sammy we noticed that something wasn't right with his hind end. 

We hoped it was just that he had been kept in a crate too much and not exercised. 

To be certain before placing him, we took him to vet where we received the shocking news that he had crippling case of hip displaysia--the worst the vet had ever seen--requiring immediate surgery to correct this painful condition. 

His first of 2 surgeries (one for each hip) is scheduled for next week and we need to raise $7500 to cover the (discounted) costs of the process. 

We are grateful that Sammy is in a wonderful foster home who loves him and who is dedicated to his well-being. After the surgeries Sammy is expected to live a long and healthy life.

We are committed to doing everything we can to bring this sweet soul out of pain and into a state of health, comfort and love.

Sporty Spice is from a litter of pups that we rescued and named after the Spice Girls.  This sassy little chihuahua pup managed to break her arm!  A double compound fracture which requires immediate emergency surgery for optimal repair.  One of the best orthopedic surgeons in LA agreed to perform the surgery right away.  Sporty will have a long road of recovery ahead of her, but with surgery and physical therapy we can save the leg and ensure that she will walk well again!


Gertie is Suffering From Pneumonia

Sweet Gertie needs our help! After being saved by Wags & Walks, Gertie was showing symptoms of what we thought was kennel cough but it was much more serious than that.  She quickly declined and had to be hospitalized for pneumonia.  Gertie is undergoing medical treatment,  but her care is costly and we have many dogs with medical needs at any given time. Would you please give to help Gertie and other dogs like her?
