Our families are special to us. We celebrate each and every dog cured and sent home with their families for more years of life and love.
Recovery and wellness for canine companions is the goal–take a look at the little ones celebrating both, and how they got there.
*Please note: securing care is contingent on the assessment of circumstances, need, and the ability to meet requirements set forth by both veterinarian and foundation. Plans for securing care may vary. All applicants are required to make a monetary contribution.

Athena is a one-year-old German Shepherd. The biopsy and ultrasound showed that her salivary glands needed to be removed. If left untreated, Athena would have eventually gone into “respiratory distress from an impeded airway.” Her mom, a recent college grad and new to Maryland, used the funds available to her to get a diagnosis and set aside what was left in hopes of getting the surgery for young Athena before she became ill. Athena is doing amazingly well!

Bonnie needed lots of care, and although her new mom was immediately in love with her, she was also between jobs and having some difficulty finding the means to help Bonnie get medical attention. Heartworm disease and other issues associated with being left outside were the issues standing between Bonnie and health.
