On the 14th of July, 2020 we were alerted to a horrific neglect and abuse situation by one of the volunteers we work with. Our hearts broke for this dog the moment we saw his first video. Thankfully the "owners agreed to release the dog the next day- the only good thing they ever did for him. Working quickly with the volunteer we brought our guy in for emergency vet care. He has been diagnosed with leishmaniasis and anaplasmosis. Leishmaniasis is a parasite disease from bites of sand flies that causes skin reactions and potentially organ failure. Our vets have started treatment and are hopeful this horrible disease has been caught early. Anaplasmosis is a bacteria from tick bites and treatment has already been started. All our collective energies are going into doing everything we can right now to ease this dog's pain.
Remo is not quite ready to be adopted into his new loving home. He has a couple more months of recovery left before travel preparations can begin. Remo is in need of donations to help support his medical needs and boarding costs. If you are able to contribute to his care, please click the sponsorship link below to help him!

Our dogs are tested with children and cats when possible. Due to location and circumstances this information it is not always available quickly. If a test is not listed on your dog of interest, we will discuss this during the adoption interview process. We cannot promise the relationship of any rescued animal with your current animals or family members.
