Shelter

Our rescue partner, Bosley’s Place, specializes in the rescue of neonatal puppies. Mykonos was turned in to a shelter by a bulldog breeder because of her evident cleft palate deformity. She was set to be euthanized when Bosley’s Place stepped in to help. They rescued her and provided round-the-clock care and special tube feedings to Mykonos in hopes she would get stronger.

Vet Visit

Mykonos has been evaluated by a veterinarian, but is still too young to determine if she needs surgery to repair her cleft palate. As she’s getting bigger, she’s eating and drinking like a normal dog without issue so far. Unless she develops pneumonia from aspirating her food or water, she won’t require surgery.

However, as Mykonos has grown, she has developed some strange behaviors, and there may be other congenital issues occurring, possibly in her brain and is at risk of injuring herself.

Now that Mykonos is 8 months old, she’s scheduled for further evaluation. She will have an MRI of the brain, bloodwork and other testing to try to identify what issues Mykonos is experiencing.

Foster

“Mykonos came to us as a baby and she has grown into a friendly, feisty little girl,” said the staff at Bosley’s Place. Mykonos has been adopted by one of the vet techs who provided support to her when she first was taken in by Bosley’s Place. Not only does she get round-the-clock professional care from her mom, but Mykonos also gets round-the-clock loves and cuddles from her too.

Mallory

Shelter

Mallory was found as a stray and taken to Austin Pets Alive! by good Samaritans. It was immediately apparent she’s a very itchy girl – she had visible signs of saliva stains on her feet, as well as constant scratching at her skin.

Vet Visit

In order to soothe Mallory’s skin of her allergies, she’ll be taking medication once per day. She also gets medicated baths on a weekly basis and speciality wipes for those particularly itchy spots.

Adopted!

Mallory was recently adopted by a staff member from Austin Pets Alive! who helped save this sweet girl. She’s being showered with all the love, attention and butt scratches she deserves. Congrats, Mallory!

Shelter

Solstice had been dumped with her six siblings in a kennel down the road from an animal shelter. The shelter took them in, but she had a euthanasia deadline due to her apparent leg injury. She wasn’t putting weight on her back left leg. Austin Humane Society pulled her just in the nick of time. “Despite her rough start in life, AHS is committed to making her comfortable and healing her wounds. She’s a little miracle,” said AHS staff.

Vet Visit

Solstice has a suspected broken left hind hip. She wasn’t putting any weight on her back left leg. She desperately needed x-rays to determine the next best steps for her treatment and healing. The vet gave her pain medication to help her be comfortable while she waited her turn to get examined.

After evaluating her x-rays, the vet determined that she’s little enough and the break is clean enough that she will not need surgery on her leg. Solstice will need to be in a cast for several weeks, with weekly cast changes since she’s growing so quickly.

Foster

Solstice is a total wiggle worm! She never stops moving and loves to nuzzle and sniff her surroundings. “During her vet exam, she was so curious about the stethoscope and kept trying to take little nibbles out of it!”

Shelter

Oscar was transfered from a shelter in Brazoria County, Texas to our rescue partner One Tail at a Time in Chicago. While being neutered recently, Oscar was diagnosed with a severe inguinal hernia, which requires additional surgery to fix.

Vet Visit

The journey to get to One Tail at a Time from Texas was a long-awaited one for little Oscar, but when he arrived he was scheduled for the surgical repair as soon as the vet could see him. Thanks to our members, we were able to sponsor his surgery and recovery. He had the procedure done on December 13, 2022 and is resting in a foster home.

Foster

“We can’t imagine how much more comfortable he must be and we’re looking forward to seeing him recover!”

Chicagoland Rescue Intervention and Support Program

This is the 15/10 Foundation’s first time working with One Tail at a Time’s CRISP – the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention and Support Program. The program helps Chicago pet owners keep their pets rather than surrendering them to the shelter due to issues like expensive veterinary bills.

This is Xena. Her owner rescued her from a bad situation and now has an incredibly loving owner. Unfortunately, their working hours got cut back due to COVID, so money was tight for them. When Xena developed an ear hematoma, her owner worried he’d have to surrender her because they couldn’t afford to pay the expensive veterinary bill.

Medical Issues

Xena has an ear hematoma, which means she has blood accumulating in her ear that needs specific surgery to drain and prevent from happening again. Thanks to One Tail at a Time’s CRISP and the 15/10 Foundation members, Xena can get the medical attention she needs and not have to worry about where she’ll end up next. She’ll go right back to her devoted owner and recover where she deserves to – at home.

Shelter

Hercules was a stray dog in a Walmart parking lot that a good Samaritan picked up and turned into Austin Humane Society. He arrived at the shelter with a long, large scar that ran from his torso to his back hip and down to his knee. Hercules was limping significantly on both of his back legs and letting his rescuers know he was in an immense amount of pain. It’s not certain how long he was wandering the streets in pain, but the right humans came along to help.

Vet

Hercules was sedated and given an in-depth examination at his hips, hind legs and knees. The vet diagnosed him with luxating patellas on both of his hind legs. This happens when the kneecap, which normally sits on the groove of the thighbone shifts out of alignment. Hercules’ left leg is a grade III and his right is a grade IV.

The left, being a grade III, means the kneecap is out of place the majority of the time but can be manually pushed back into the groove. The right leg, however, is permanently out of the groove. Poor Hercules also has a broken right leg.

The vet consulted on Hercules’ case recommended surgery for both knees to ensure the highest possible quality of life for this gentle giant. Herc is estimated to only be about a year old, so he has lots of life ahead of him! After the surgery, he’ll need a few days of supervision at the vet’s office before he can move into a medical foster home. While in foster, he’ll undergo a few months of physical therapy to get his back legs working again.

About Hercules

Weighing in at 75 pounds, Hercules is a gentle giant! He tends to drool pretty excessively but absolutely loves both people and animals. Volunteers at AHS describe his personality as “chill” and “laid back.” He gets excited to see other dogs and loves to play through the fence in the dog runs.

He would also like to know if you can do this with your tongue. It’s his special talent.

Mia

Pupdates

Shelter

Our partner Real Good Rescue found Mia in the South LA shelter and couldn’t leave without her. She scooped her up and headed directly to the vet for a complete evaluation of Mia’s health.

Vet

Mia’s bloodwork came back showing signs of infection and bacteria, both in her skin and as a UTI. She also had numerous masses all over her body that need a thorough checking. One mass on her foot was diagnosed as having cancerous soft tissue sarcoma. She had successful surgery removing the cancer on her foot, and she got to keep all her toes. Sarcoma is tricky – it can come back and will need to be continually removed to make sure it doesn’t spread to other areas of Mia’s body.

While Mia was under anesthesia for the cancer removal, she also got her teeth taken care of. She had a handful of rotten teeth that were extracted, giving her a sweet smile now.

Foster

This petite lady is approximately 3 years old, 45 lbs, super friendly, has loved all people and dogs that she’s met. She’s also very wiggly and looking for a home to call her own.

Willa

Pupdates

Shelter

Willa was found as a stray, running down the street chasing a car that is believed to be responsible for dumping her. She’s a super wiggly and friendly dog with good spirits despite her hard experience.

It is hard to get a good picture of Willa because she’s so wiggly and happy

Vet

She’s in good health other than being heartworm positive, which is treatable and preventable. Willa needs the medication to support her condition, to get spayed, then she’s available for adoption!

Foster

She’s currently in a foster home while she recovers from heartworm and awaits her spaying. She’s being spoiled with all the pets and toys she deserves until her forever family comes along.

Bernard

Pupdates

Shelter

Bernard came to AHS as a transfer from Austin Animal Center, where he was surrendered with another dog to due to owner moving into housing that doesn’t allow pets. After his intake, he tested positive for heartworm, which he needs medication for. It’s a treatable and preventable condition and Bernard should be his happy, active self in no time with support.

Vet

Bernard has been getting oral medication treatment for his heartworms to kill the juvenile worms. He has had his first injection and will be getting the rest in the series throughout November. This will kill the adult heartworms. After the injections, he will have 30 days of medication to finish his treatment.

Foster and Adoption

Bernard went to a foster to adopt home. He will get the last two heartworm treatment injections this month and then the adoption will be finalized!

Shelter

She was surrendered tot he shelter by her owner with several lacerations to her head and neck along with an actively bleeding ulcerated mammary mass and several small tumors on her abdomen.

The shelter staff and volunteers said despite her condition, she was the sweetest and friendliest dog to both the humans and dogs at the shelter. Because of her medical condition, she was given 72 hours to be rescued or face euthanasia.

Vet Visit

All of the wounds and lacerations to her face and body were treated. She underwent surgery to remove the ulcerated mammary mass and as many of the tumors as possible. While she was under, she also had all of her teeth cleaned up and a few rotten ones removed.

The mammary mass is cancerous, but it could not all be completely removed otherwise there would not have been enough skin to close her back up. She’s under strict instruction to avoid sun exposure to her abdomen and the vet will work with the foster parents to keep an eye on the remaining masses for the rest of her life.

Foster and Adoption

Ruby went to a foster family to take it easy and recover from the extensive surgery. After caring for her, the family couldn’t imagine their lives without her. “I was creating a reel to promote Ruby and by the time I was done I couldn’t imagine her leaving our home. She has won everyone over in seconds! I never thought I would foster fail but when you know you know,” said her Ruby’s new mom.

Ruby would also like you to know she can do this cool thing with her tongue.
