Success Stories

The rescue that could... with your help!

As you know, we have so much going on and couldn't do it without our community fans, website exposure, Facebook friends and your shares. Thank you for the continued support. Rescue certainly never ends and we're always working on the next emergency case. Just to name a few examples of what traumatic cases we are working on:

Zoey, the bulldog
Sky, the puppy that was almost septic, emaciated and has an infected leg
Rusty, the puppy that broke his leg and now needs amputation
Poppy, the pup whose owner decided to self-amputate an infected leg without pain medication, sedation or vet expertise receiving the prosthetic leg

and all the pups we put our hearts into treating and recently lost. Our hearts are broken but you're keeping us going.  Parvo, distemper and the tragic loss of Kohrs/Bo Jackson sometime leave us weary of how much more we can take. And then we realize what all these animals are going through so we Chive On to see if we can save the next deserving heart. 

There are several YouCaring or Go Fund Me accounts open as a method tracking. However, we are a nonprofit organization and will ensure all of your contributions go towards our rescues medical needs.  For more information on any of these rescue cases, additional details are available on our social media Facebook page as well.

 

Time goes by, day by day things change

Update" Annabelle has a foster!

Time has gone by , day by day things change ! Well over a month ago. Annabelle was hit and dragged quite some distance by a car . Linda Clem Harris and Mike and Mellissa Clements stepped forward to change her life , act now rescue backed this beautiful girl and Team Schilling gave her the care and rest she needed to heal ! Mineral Area hospital was able to put forth the effort to save her leg. Thru it all , she has been a real champ . I thought she had a place to go after her recovery. She had an adopter ! But the old cliche , out of sight out of mind. , still holds true . She no longer has a foster or an adopter and will be forced to go into boarding if we cannot at least find a foster. She has won the battle! She now deserves her own place to call home. She is in St. Louis mo Please give her a place to go ! She will not do well in a kennel setting! She fought death , she wants to live and she wants what is rightfully hers ! LOVE ! Please fill out an app at actnowrescue.net to foster for adopt .
