Some weeks at work are pretty boring, we don’t rescue dogs every day or anything like that, there are some times where two or three days go by without us rescuing animals and we don’t find animals homes everyday there are times as well that days go by that we don’t find our animals their happy forever homes. However, the reverse is true, there are some days that we rescue multiple animals and find multiple animals homes. Those are the good days when we save the poor unlucky animals from the harsh streets. And it’s even better when we find them a place that is safe.
This passed weekend through we actually rescued more dogs than we have before in any given weekend. Ten. We rescued ten dogs this passed weekend and some were in extremely poor shape. It was heart wrenching to see these poor animals in such a sad state and to know that their previous owners are the ones to blame for it. Most were so malnurished and starved that we had to have round the clock care with them because it could hurt them more if they ate to much at one time, so we had to find them small amounts of food every couple hours. Same with the water, too much water isn’t good for them either so we had to give them small amounts water so as not to upset their stomachs. Then after this we can give them more food and water until they get back to a healthy weight.
Then when they can handle it flee baths for them all and then the vet to get check out so we can have a battle plan on how to get them right again. I have no idea why we found so many this weekend, maybe it is just that we were in the right spots at the right times. All of this was going on while we had a building crisis of our own. One of our supplies trucks was backing out of our warehouse and smashed into the garage door. The warehouse is were we keep most of our cages and pens, so how do we keep all of the animals safe and warm with a broken garage door? Lucky for us there is a local garage door company that does emergency calls and was able to come out within a couple hours to look at it and then a couple more hours to fix it. Thank goodness because we would have had to move all of our guys out and find another place for them until it was fixed.
But now since the garage door is good, we have a big task ahead of us with getting all of these dogs healthy again and trained so they will have a good chance of finding a happy and safe forever home. Because this is why we do what we do, these animals cannot do it on their own, they need caring people to help them and then more caring people to love them.
Thanks everyone for sticking around and reading my stories, until next time,
