Wallace the dog had a successful surgery!

He was injured, and languished for several weeks, malnourished and unable to use his left hind leg.  A kind woman noticed him, and contacted us.  We directed her to a veterinary team, they operated to restore function of the leg, and now he's in the recovery phase.

We need your help.  We're still $700 short of paying for the surgery and follow-up care.  Please donate if you can. Thank you!

Wallace the dog

Wallace, a pit bull under a year old, was running free in Dripping Springs when he was hit by a car, breaking a hind leg.  Fed only sporadically, Wallace was skin and bones.  Two months later, a kind lady volunteering in the neighborhood, Juana, saw him for the first time, and couldn't help but take him home.

Juana contacted us and, on our advice, whisked him to our vet, who is a rescue pit bull specialist!  He was given all vaccinations, heartworm tested negative, and was already neutered.  On exam, the vet found that he had a break that can potentially be fixed with full recovery of the use of his leg.  That's what we are going for, immediately!

Wallace wants to be with people, and is happy with other dogs, including Juana's alpha, a smaller herding dog.  He was too interested in her two cats, however, so Juana asked her friend, Dayle, to foster him. Dayle has no other animals right now and can devote her time to Wallace's recovery.

Today, February 1st, Wallace will have his surgery.

His surgery, overnight stay in the veterinarian's office, and post-surgical medication will cost $1400.  His rescuers have donated to him, the vet is giving us major discounts, and now Thundering Paws is stepping in to pay his expenses.  YOU are Thundering Paws!  Please help him by donating.

Wallace will be available for adoption at some future time, to be determined by the speed of his recovery.  Please see his video at the link below:

Thank you all so much!  We could never help these dear animals without you!

 Bella the tabby]

Bella is an adult kitty, easy to care for, friendly but not needy.  Her former people didn't like her, and she learned to cope by hiding, and swiping at people who treated her unkindly, without ever hurting anyone. She's a pretty easy-going cat. She doesn't crave constant attention, and needs an adopter who isn't demanding either. If you do yoga or other floor exercises, she'll reward you by rubbing against you affectionately; she seems to like having someone on the floor at her level. She's a pretty cat.

Ready to adopt?  Fill out our adoption application.  To arrange to meet Bella, use our contact form.

Sparky and Mohawk are two female cats who were abandoned in the Dripping Springs area. Now they are enjoying life at a foster home, and will be available for adoption soon. We think they're about 3 years old.  Sparky is very clever, just as sweet as can be, and adores being petted. Mohawk is a cuddly, plump cat with a short tail and coppery-gold eyes.
