These are just a few of the animals helped by Harley's Hope Foundation
via assistance with major veterinary care, behavioral training, or emergency foster care.
Connie applied for help for her family's dog, Whiskey, a young lab mix. Whiskey had an intestinal blockage and without surgery, he would have died within a day or so. Connie and her son live on Social Security disability income and have faced terrible times in recent years, including the accidental death of her son's father and her own battle with stage 4 cancer. Connie told us that her son absolutely loves Whiskey and sleeps with the dog who has helped him cope with his father's sudden passing.
Jesus and Chubbs are two out of three 7 week old pups diagnosed with Parvo. Sadly, the third pup, Raider, did not survive long enough to receive treatment. These two were hospitalized for several days, but are home now and on the road to recovery. Their large, human family lives on one income and thought they were doing a good deed when they took mama dog in from a bad situation.

Our first case of 2018 is definitely a cautionary tale involving vaccines and medical records. Maverick is a sweet, 9 week old pup who was hospitalized in a veterinary ER for 10 days battling parvovirus and roundworm. His person, Robert, got the pup from a breeder. Unfortunately, once Maverick became ill and was hospitalized, the breeder refused to return Rob's calls and pleas for help and information. Whether you get your new pet from a breeder, a rescue/shelter, or take in that "free" puppy or kitten from a neighbor, ALWAYS get copies of their vaccine records and the person or organization's policy on helping with sick animals post-adoption.

They say "no good deed goes unpunished" and Patrick learned that harsh lesson just recently.  He had adopted a friend's dog, Beiya, when the friend deployed two weeks prior to the dog falling ill.  At 9 years of age, Beiya was hardly a spring chicken, but Patrick expected to get down the road a bit before dealing with a potential tragedy.  It seems Beiya swallowed something she shouldn't have and it became lodged in her stomach.  She needed surgery right away to save her life, but Patrick, who works in a restaurant, needed help with the cost.

Claudio is 6 year old, male kitty who is facing a life-threatening emergency. He developed a urinary blockage due to crystals and a urinary tract infection over the weekend. His mom, Rebecca, a college student, got him to the emergency room when she noticed Claudio was struggling to urinate and what little he was passing was bloody. He was treated with IV fluids and meds in the ER, catheterized and sent home.

Nikita, a 10 year old Husky, has had chronic ear infections for the past several months. She was treated for infection, but when her ear began bleeding, Nikita and her mom, Marlena, were referred to a specialist who put the dog on stronger medication. Once the infection cleared and they were able to get a better look inside, the veterinarian saw something that warranted a CT scan and they found a mass.

This handsome fella is a 6 year old Tuxedo named Adema, who suffered back-to-back urinary obstructions requiring emergency treatment. In an effort to minimize his risk for additional obstructions, his veterinarian performed a perineal urethrostomy - a surgical restructuring of the urethra. His mom, Lindsey, works, but after paying for two emergency visits in one week, needed help with the cost of this major surgery. HHF was happy to pitch in and was able to do so thanks to our supporters. The surgery went well and we're pulling for Adema to make a quick and full recovery.
Rigsby is a very handsome 5 year old Pit Bull who was diagnosed with mast cell tumors and a torn ACL. His person, Sherry, works part-time, but is also living on Social Security disability income and couldn't swing the $3,000 estimate without help. She applied to numerous foundations including HHF and received enough funding to proceed with the surgery. While HHF no longer covers ligament surgeries due to the frequency and cost to repair this type of condition, we were able to contribute to the tumor removal thanks to our donors. Hope you're back up and running around soon, Rigsby!
Syria and Monkey are two very sweet, female kitties who came into foster care last weekend. Monkey is so affectionate, HHF volunteer, Janet, couldn't get her work done! Their person is a single mom who works, but is also working with another local agency to find affordable housing for her and her children. We welcome the kitties and wish the family the best of luck!
