Zoe – Safe and on her Ride to Freedom

7/10/21 – At 1:45 this afternoon, I received this update from the director of Shelter Angels “Freedom Ride”. Zoe is free and safe and on her way to a second chance at life. Thank you to Diane, Make A Difference Rescue, Ingham County Animal Control Shelter,
Amy Johnson of Teachers’ Pet (who contacted me), and especially Kathleen Hacker of Shelter Angels who picked Zoe up from the Shelter and who will be making sure she recovers and finds her way into a furever home. It truly takes a Village. – diana

Zoe – Scheduled to be Euthanized for Lack of Isolation Space

7/921 4:30 p.m. Update – It appears we have resolution. I will update tomorrow if and when Zoe is picked up. Thank you to everyone who’s been trying to help.
7/9/21 – I inadvertently deleted the Posting on Zoe, the dog needing assistance at the Ingham County Animal Control Shelter. Here is what was posted. If anyone made offers to help on that post, please post here because unfortunately, when the post was deleted so was all of your comments. A rescue has been in contact with the Shelter and Zoe is safe at this time but placement has still not been worked out.
UPDATE II – Two rescue groups have stepped up, one in which works with that Countty shelter often. Also, the Shelter Director has been great and has been responding to the post on our main page, including mine, and knows that we have help and just a matter of coordinating it. The Shelter does not open until later in the morning but I will update when I hear something.
UPDATE: An experienced rescuer and person who we’ve helped often, has offered to pick up the dog. This person is about 2 hours from the shelter so if there is a rescue willing to pull or an individual who can assist her, please contact Diane: phoebe3657@yahoo.com.A message has been left at the shelter and she will be calling as soon as they open. We still may need a rescue to pull; we will see. Please understand that no one should be condemning the municipal shelter. I’ve said this numerous times, municipal shelters cannot refuse intake from their residents or strays found on the streets. They are limited by budgets and facilities. In this case, the dog had to be isolated because ring worm is very contagious. I will continue to keep everyone updated. -diana

Walter – Starts His Heart Worm Treatment

7/8/21 – Walter Update..
This super handsome boy was in yesterday for his first round of “Heart worm Disease” treatment. We also took spine, hip, and knee x rays because his joints are stiff and he has trouble walking. His knees may have old ACL injuries, he has some arthritic changes in his knees and his back. His hip socket on the left is more shallow than it should be and he has a more noticeable limp on the left leg as well. He is on hip and joint supplements, pain medication, and anti inflammatory meds. We are looking into an “Assisi Loop” which would help him with his pain and stiffness. It’s about $300..
If you have not heard of Heartworm, here is a link explaining it.
Walter is 7 yr old and he will need a forever home. Moore Veterinary Hospital is treating him and once we are finished with his treatment he will be in need of a forever home. ♡ EVERYONE LOVES THIS BOY♡
Thank you, Gina

Stevie Wonder – RIP – Couldn’t Survive the Surgeries

7/5/21 – My heart breaks to report that Little Stevie Wonder crossed the rainbow bridge on July 3 at 6:20 a.m. in his rescuer’s arms. It was just too much for his little body to have two serious surgeries in over just a few days. He now has sight in both of his eyes and is running around with all of the sweet innocents who passed before him. – Diana

7/4/21 – Happy Independence Day to our Amazing Supporters!
On this day when we celebrate freedom I want to give a happy update on Ariana and Amelia. They are both doing great as we continue to keep our paws crossed. In fact, Ariana has a furever home lined up when she is medically cleared. She will be trained as a service dog and be the companion for a young boy with autism. – diana

Walter – On His Way to His New Foster Home

7/1/21 – Walter 5:27:21Walter Update..
Today he went to his new foster family. Walter was saved by a very nice man who rescued him from the streets and from a bad situation.
4 paws 1 heart offered to check Walter out medically and he tested positive for Heartworm Disease. He was also emaciated and walked like a crippled old man. The rescuer provided love, kindness, shelter, compassion, and stability for Walter but he had to make a very hard decision to turn him over because his son was allergic. It’s was so hard because Walter was family and truly loved. Foster dad Jay, helped Walter reach the next step of his journey and that is so important. We will make sure he has updates and he can visit any time. Walter has a ways to go until being cleared medically, but we will make sure everything possible is done to give him the 2nd chance he so deserves.. ♡

Ariana and Amelia – Siblings to Jasmine – Dropped Off in a Box at the Rescuer’s Door

7/1/21 – More prayers!! This is Ariana (white) and Amelia (brindle). They were left in a box at the door of the good Samaritan who rescued the puppy suffering with Parvo who is with Gina at the vet hospital. It appears there were actually 4 puppies in the litter. Our friend had originally rescued two behind a Burger King. Unfortunately one died during the night and by the next day we were able to get the other into the hospital. It appears that the woman who had the mama found out who rescued the two and the other night dropped off two more puppies at the person’s home. She left a note, rang the doorbell, and ran. Both puppies had white gums and were lethargic but did not appear to be in as serious condition as the two others (one of whom died). They were seen last night by one of our partner vets and they were given the parvo vaccine in hopes that if they have contracted the parvo virus, the vaccine will reduce the severity. Everyone is on call should they take a turn for the worse. The rescuer has fluids and is giving them Pedialyte and high protein food as recommended by the doctor. This morning Ariana and Amelia are doing well and acting more like puppies. diana
