    • Gideon and Johnny Walker Fundraiser!


      13043521_10154193179903410_5584046616156384934_nWe received a call on our emergency line about a dog that was hit by a car that had eluded rescue for several days. Finally a good samaritan was able to capture the golden. The dog had no tags and needed our help. The vet now thinks this this dog was a abused by a human by most likely smashing a board against his body with nails attached causing puncture wounds which being left untreated for so many days has become necrotic and will require surgery to remove the dead and dying tissue. This poor baby was covered in ticks all over his body sucking the very life from him.

      A Good Samaritan found him and brought him to AMC for emergency care and released him to us after no microchip or other forms of ownership were found. Evidence of him living in the streets for weeks were clear by his coat, nails, and state of health living under a car for weeks. With your help, we will be able to heal not only his body, but his heart and soul.

      A donation of any amount will help defray the cost of this any others angels we take into our care. Please help by going to:


        Johnny Walker.
