WE ARE VERY EXCITED TO INTRODUCE
"HEALING HEARTS - CRITICAL CARE TEAM" OF PWD

Join a team of caring individuals supporting the extraordinary efforts of Pets with Disabilities.

This logo will be displayed next to each dog that uses these funds – “critical care” – unexpected expenses – life saving medical attention.

All of our dogs at Pets with Disabilities are disabled.  They are the dogs that are overlooked because of “the defect” people see on the outside - people typically aren't willing to take the time to see the wagging tail of the deaf dog chasing the ball across the yard, or the blind dog going up a flight of stairs to get the treat or hug they know is waiting for them, or the 3 legged dog run like the wind with their friends in the joy of living. 

We have several fund raisers every year to support our rescue efforts.  We anticipate each dog coming into the rescue program will require $1000-$1500 in “typical” medical needs – and our fundraisers help us cover those costs.  Once a dog is accepted at PWD, we make a COMMITMENT to that dog - whatever it takes, for however long they need.  We can see the obvious external needs of a dog, but until they get to our vetting team, we really don't know what the real medical implications will be to help a dog become as healthy as they can be. The “Healing Hearts – Critical Care Team” is necessary to provide on-going, available funds to cover the extraordinary cases we encounter.

 

For example, in one 3 week period - those needs were EXTRAORDINARY, generating well over $10,000 in medical bills. This is our commitment to the dogs that find their way to PWD - the commitment of our hearts, our time, our energy, our sleepless nights of worry, and money! We can make that commitment because it's the right thing to do , but it also takes a lot of time and effort away from the daily needs of the rescue and other dogs to do the additional fund raising to cover these costs. The CCT’s regular monthly gifts provide a consistent, reliable income stream that allows us to spend less time fundraising—and more time saving lives.  Becoming a member of the PWD CCT is an easy, efficient and tax-deductible way to fight neglect and make a difference for disabled dogs all year long.

Please help us continue to be a voice for the unbroken spirit of the disabled dog. 
They truly give us a chance to witness miracles of spirit -
we can only accomplish this with your support.

The Critical Care Team helps more dogs in desperate need!!

Meet the "FEARLESS FOURSOME"
- their heartbreaking stories will be on the website soon -
BUT, right NOW, we are focused on providing the URGENT vet care they need. 
WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP TO COVER THESE COSTS!
 ANGELS NEEDED!

Meet 4 amazing survivors! We have nick named them the "fearless foursome." These 4 needed us in ways we have never encounter before in our years of rescue.  It has been an incredibly challenging time for us because of the extent of their injuries from torture and abuse at the hands of humans. These 4 landed here, and we believe they deserve every chance to get the help they need. Healing is underway medically and emotionally. We are taking one day at a time and we are beginning to see more wagging tails. Their recovery will take months and be very costly.
Please consider a donation to their care
