Saving Little Tuffy!


On Labor Day, we got a frantic text about a little dog that had been hit by a car in South Central and had been left to die amongst the rubble. She had been there at least a day and was already covered in ants! A kind woman who found her, reached out to rescues, frantically looking for someone to please come save this pup!

We wasted no time and responded immediately, as time was now of the essence – she was holding on by a thread. Thanks to volunteer Kathy Mitchell, who was at the scene within 20 minutes and raced her to City of Angels, and Eldad Hagar of Hope for Paws, who immediately undertook the enormous vet care commitment to help save Little Tuffy’s life, the stars were aligned for this discarded baby.

The veterinary team, who started working on her right away, said she was already so dehydrated that her eyes had sunken in…

Little Tuffy, we learned, was only four months old and had three broken legs. After several days in intensive care, and with her vitals stabilized, we were able to move her to VCA Animal Hospital Brentwood, where the wonderful Dr. Kim postponed the start of his vacation to perform her multiple leg surgeries. She was able to be moved to her foster’s house the next day.

Little Tuffy is one tough little girl and is already back on her feet! A few steps at a time, but doing great.

It takes a pack of caring people to save one dog, so please join the TUFFY PACK by helping her and us to save other dogs in desperate need. Donate today!

Keeping Your Dog Safe During Summer .. and Throughout the Year


We love our dogs and want them to be our constant companion. For some that means leaving their canines in the car while doing errands, which can be a fatal error in judgment. Most people don’t realize how fast the inside of a car heats up. For instance, when the temperature outside is 77 degrees, the inside of your car, even with the windows cracked, could reach 98 degrees. On 90-degree days, the inside of your automobile could skyrocket to 161 degrees. Your car becomes an oven, resulting in nerve damage, heart problems and ultimately the death of your beloved best friend.

You also risk your dog being stolen. Following the theft of dogs from backyards and in front of stores, this is the third most common dog-napping scenario. So if you love your dogs, leave them at home, inside, where they will be safe and cool!

It also highly recommended that you microchip your pets (be sure to register your contact information) and secure the chip tag, along with a regular ID tag, to their collar. If your pet were to become lost, the odds of someone helping him/her are greater if the person is able to quickly call the number on the tag. However, if the tags were to fall off and your animal was taken to a vet or shelter, a scan of the microchip could be the only way they will find their way home to you.

Perhaps you cannot imagine a scenario in which your dog or cat could become lost. However, may dogs get out when gardeners and other workers leave gates open. We also live in earthquake country… anything can happen, so we must take every precaution to protect our pets.
