Help Our Dogs In Need Of Medical Care
Rescued Great Dane Needs Hip Surgery
Sunny is an incredibly handsome Great Dane, rescued from the shelter by Wags and Walks. He went straight to the hospital where our vet confirmed that Sunny needs surgery on his hip to correct a birth defect in the way his bones developed. The surgery will provide him with relief and a stable hip joint, but he will probably always have a little bit of a wonky way of walking - that's ok, it adds character to his charming personality!
Chihuahua Families Need Your Help
Mary Kate and Ashley were both pregnant when taken in by Wags & Walks. Our team had no idea about how far along either were and expected the babies to arrive shortly. Both moms came in together and although their full story is unknown, we believe they are sisters. These sisters share a special bond of motherhood.
A New Leg for Puppy Smith
We have seen our fair share of upsetting cases but this one boggles the mind.
A good samaritan found this Smith in the middle of nowhere...it was was well over 100 degrees and he was tens of miles from anything but a gas station.
It's enough to wonder how someone could leave a puppy in the middle of the desert, but even more upsetting when his rescuer noticed he was missing his back foot and the injury had never been properly treated--although somewhat healed over, there was bone protuding through the skin.
Help Humphrey After Tragic Neglect
Found as a stray and brought to the Baldwin Park Shelter, Humphrey's skin was shredded with punctures and lacerations covering his head, neck and arms; the wounds were so bad and untreated that there were maggots embedded in the wounds on his ears.
As though that weren't enough, his eyes were deeply infected and he was struggling to walk.
And yet, this 50 pound marshmallow of cuteness had love for everyone he met. Humphrey just wanted to snuggle and be close to everyone at Baldwin.
Every so often, one of the amazing dogs we save from the shelter has more challenging medical needs than your average bear. Diesel is one of those dogs and he needs your help! Diesel was skinny when he was rescued but was otherwise so happy, sweet and loving that we assumed he just was overwhelmed and too stressed to eat after spending two months in the shelter. Though you would never know it from his personality, after several days of testing by our amazing veterinary team, it was discovered that Diesel has been suffering from an untreated auto-immune condition that resulted in him becoming anemic and having a low platelet count (he bleeds and bruises more easily). With the correct diagnosis, Diesel is now on the comeback trail. His loving and happy personality has never wavered and every human he meets falls madly in love with him. Even when we were scratching our heads trying to figure out what was wrong and how to move forward, there was never a doubt that we would move heaven and earth for this boy. Heaven and earth are being moved and we are committed to doing whatever it takes to get him healthy enough to move to his forever home. In the meantime, Diesel is living with his foster mom where he is being loved, snuggled and spoiled! If you are interested in giving Diesel a forever home, please fill out our adoption application.

Her treatment and care for Pneumonia will take time and funds but we are committed to doing whatever it takes to get her happy and healthy and ready for her forever home!
