Joy for Jojo

Joy for Jojo

Jojo is a sweet and much-loved senior pup. But as his owner, Paula Herschede, explains, his airborne allergies can make him miserable, causing him to rip out his fur and rub his eyes so hard that he scratches them. Paula is desperate to help Jojo, but her financial situation makes it difficult to pay for his costly medication. Luckily, C.A.R.E.4Paws’ mobile clinic has been able to help Jojo, and he’s now feeling great.

“We are so lucky to have such a wonderful group like C.A.R.E.4Paws to help those in need,” Paula says. “My hope is that C.A.R.E.4Paws finds kindness in return in the magnitude it is given.”

A Furever Family for Sarge

A Furever Family for Sarge

C.A.R.E.4Paws is not a rescue group. But sometimes, under special circumstances, we end up taking in dogs and cats when their owners cannot keep them so that the animals don’t have to end up in a shelter. This is the case with sweet, 12-year-old Sarge, whose senior owner had to move into a nursing home.

Sadly, as Sarge’s owner suffers from dementia, he had not received the care he needed for quite some time, and he came to us with matted, flea-infested fur. He was very uncomfortable, so our Community Programs & Volunteer Coordinator, Wendy Domanski, and volunteer Chris Erskine immediately brought Sarge to Antonio with A’s Mobile Grooming. Afterward, he looked like a completely different dog and you could see the relief on his face.

Next, Wendy took Sarge for a checkup with C.A.R.E.4Paws’ mobile clinic team and then he went home with our volunteer Sally Bulles to be fostered until we could find him a home.

Well, finding him a forever family literally only took one day. The parents of our veterinary assistant Cristy Culligan were looking for a senior pup to adopt and they fell in love with Sarge. We’re beyond excited for this handsome boy and grateful to the whole team that rescued him and ensured he received the care he so desperately needed. Now Sarge gets to live out his life showered with love and affection. Talk about a happy tail!

Another amazing Happy Tail! Linda shared her words of gratitude with us:

“Thank you for taking such good care of my little spit fire baby girl Li’l Bit last week as you spayed her. She is doing well in her recovery. Your service is appreciated so much! We would not have been able to afford her having this surgery if it wasn’t for your amazing service to our community! Thank you, again!”

New Wheels for Kali!

New Wheels for Kali!

Recently, after beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog Lizzie sadly crossed the rainbow bridge, her family reached out to C.A.R.E.4Paws to see if we knew of a dog in need of a wheelchair. Shortly thereafter, sweet pup Kali received her new walking wheels and is getting around wonderfully. A big thank you to Lizzie’s family for the kind gift!

Help for Hershey

Help for Hershey

“Throughout the years, Hershey, my 13-year-old lab-pitbull mix, has gone to C.A.R.E.4Paws for his medical issues,” says Rita Baldarez. “They have helped me tremendously with appointments and pet food. They are so kind and really care.” We send a big thank you to Grey Muzzle Organization for its generous grants to support senior pups like Hershey.
