Caring for Carter – A Medical Fundraiser

Carter_YouCaring_photoCaring for Carter: A medical fundraiser to help a beautiful rescue in need of a life-changing surgery. Help us, help Carter receive a leg up in this world.

Your Support Can Change Carter’s World?

Carter is looking to us to make him whole once more. Saved but broken is Carter’s problem. A critical break to his front leg will continue to make mobility extremely difficult without extensive, corrective surgery. Plates and stabilizers will be necessary as well as rehabilitation to insure that Carter will once again have full use of his leg. Please consider donating $5, $10 or maybe $20 to help us raise the necessary funds for Carter’s surgery.

Support Carter today!

Save >> Foster >> Adopt

WH_slider-foreverhomes_OctWe saw the impact of forever homes over the last couple days and could not stop the smiles from growing as the forever love kept spreading. We may save them but forever love comes along to provide each one with a sense of being, a sense of purpose. The love one receives from a rescue animal in immeasurable. It unfolds like a river carving out a history made only for those that travel along the waters. Its depths are boundless and the love that all experience is truly unbelievable.

We witnessed love unfold on the floors of Petco. Where beautiful hearts came down to the levels of the animals seeking homes. There upon the floor, forever love blossomed and we were there to witness it. Nothing sweeter. Nothing more perfect than to watch the cycle come to completion. Save their lives >> foster their transition >> adopt them into a loving, forever home. This can only be achieved with the critical assistance of foster families who bring them into their hearts first. Then enter the forever family who is the hero of the hour. The one that will rewrite all the wrongs for the new life entering their home forever. What an impact forever can make on these lives and yours!

Our goal is simple, may each and every one of our rescues never know what it is like to be abandoned or given up on again. Thank you for helping us each step of the way.

 

Congratulations to our new adoptive rescues:

Amber, Bear, Brandy, Bronco, Candy, Clove, Dina, Lil, Murphy, Patches, Phil, Sadie Mae, Rilie, Ruby, Sally, Sasha and Tony

VOLUNTEER Opportunity:We are looking for some volunteers to assist as our event animal caregivers. We will be bringing rescues from boarding who need someone to look after them as well as some rescues in foster homes who will be at event without a handler so we are in need of some gentle hearts ready to provide a guiding hand. All that we ask is that you walk and talk your rescue around giving them he best exposure to connect with forever love. Take them outside for crowd and potty breaks, provide water and loving reassurance. Watch out for them and insure they are properly cared for while in your hands during the event. Email volunteer@wagginghearts.org if you can share a few life-changing hours with our rescues. They seem to show a little better when they are not alone among the crowd and portray a more relaxed, calm and happy demeanor. Let’s help them shine, connect with us today!
