Help Our Dogs In Need
Help DJ Get Back on Her Feet
DJ is a very lucky pup! She was brought into a City shelter as a stray with a broken leg, likely from being hit by a car while on the run. Our rescue team happened to be at the shelter when she was brought in and immediately said we would take her and get her fixed up. Surgery was the only option because the break was so high up on her leg - the bones needed to be aligned and a metal pin implanted to keep everything in place. Sweet DJ needs to rest for 4 weeks to heal properly, very challenging for a young rambunctious pup! After her resting/healing period, DJ will need a month of physical therapy rehab to ensure optimal use of the leg.
Help Winnie Get A Healthy Coat
Precious Winnie was saved by Wags & Walks but is in desperate need of medical treatment for her skin. As you can see, Winnie's coat is severely irritated due to mange!
We are working closely with our vet partners to provide the best care possible for her, but need your help. Our mission is to save dogs like Winnie every day and provide the care they need to live a healthy life in a forever, happy home. Please give to help Winnie and more dogs suffering like her.
Benji's Knee Surgery
Wags and Walks rescued Benji from the shelter and almost immediately noticed he had a little limp and would hold his leg up when walking/running. Benji went to see our orthopedic vet who confirmed that he has luxating patellas (unstable knee caps that pop in and out of place.) One leg is worse than the other and needs to be surgically corrected. Little Benji will feel so much better after his knee is repaired.
He will have surgery this month followed by 6 weeks of intense physical therapy. Please help us cover the cost of his surgery and therapy by giving today and sharing his stories.
Have A Heart To Help Princess
Wags and Walks rescued sweet Princess from a City shelter and upon bringing her to our vet we learned she had a heart murmur. To be thorough we brought her to see a cardiology specialist to investigate the murmur. Unfortunately the cardiologist determined that her murmur is a result of a more serious heart condition called degenerative valve disease (DVD). Basically the valves that carry blood to/from her heart are leaky which cause thickening of the valves, high blood pressure and enlargement of the heart.
Elle Has Two Fractured Legs
Sweet Elle was rescued by the Wags & Walks team! Unfortunately, our team noticed something visibly wrong with her leg.
After taking her to a vet partner for X-rays, it turns out she actually has two fractures - one in each leg! She is currently undergoing treatment that helps increase the blood flow in her legs and after her surgery for the fractures, she will begin her rehabilitation treatment.
Nick Needs FHO Surgery
Nick is a 10 month old German Shepard who was found as a stray after being hit by a car. He was rushed to East Valley Shelter where Wags and Walks rescued him and is committed to his care.
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.
