Sara – a miraculous recovery

Sara being sweet

It’s incredible how our Sponsor Pets recover from the most horrific accidents. And even though they’ve been through so much between surgeries and different treatments, they remain sweet, kind and gentle. They know the true meaning of receiving and giving love and compassion. Sponsor dog Sara was rescued from a burning house. Sadly, she was left behind. Her owners didn’t come back to rescue or to even look for her. It wasn’t until the firemen came in to clear through the soot that they found this frighten dog. Sara was inflicted with burns across her body and was in need of immediate help. After being brought to Animal League America, Sara underwent several surgeries and intricate procedures along with being treated for pneumonia – due to the smoke inhalation. Sara recovered wonderfully and is still thriving 4 years later! She is in a loving home where she can run around in the yard and sprawl on the couch with her feline friend. She is gentle and loves to watch over her new human baby sister while she sleeps! SPONSOR SARA

Sandy

After recently moving to Long Island City her dad found a few really nice dog parks that Sandy can run and play.  She is always so popular with all of the dogs at the park. They all love to chase Sandy to the top of the rocks, her dad was able to capture the moment in a perfect photo – Sandy and friend looking out at the city buildings.  Some may agree or disagree with Sandy’s love for the New York Yankees, she too is going to miss the captain, Derek Jeter.  No matter what team you cheer for, you must admit she looks excellent in her bandana!

Karina, safe at last

Karina is an adorable Shihtzu rescued from a puppy mill in late 2013.  Karina sadly was forced to have litter after litter in terrible unhealthy conditions which resulted in her developing diabetes and becoming blind.  But her life sure changed for the better when she was brought to safety.  In just a few months she transformed into this loving, sweet dog.  It’s truly amazing.  She has a wonderful disposition and is so adorable and kind.  Her foster mom, Maria, really gave her the attention she needed – and we can tell it’s working!  Maria, her sponsors, and our veterinarian staff all make rescues like Karina’s possible.

We will miss you Sixpence – In loving memory

About a month ago we lost a very sweet Sponsor dog.  He was the oldest dog that has been in the Sponsor Program the longest.  Sixpence passed away peacefully in his home.  His mom, Barbara, was saddened when she found her beloved “6P” at rest.  Even though she mourns the loss of her delicate little buddy, she is so grateful to have had him for fourteen wonderful years.  Here are some beautiful photos that Barbara shared with us.

Rhett, In Loving Memory

We sadly report the passing of sweet Sponsor cat, Rhett, who passed away peacefully at a medical center near his home.

Rhett joined the Sponsor Program in 2008. He was a beautiful 8-year-old black cat that, unfortunately, was diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus. With insulin injections and a special diet, we were able to give Rhett the best quality of life possible.

We were so happy when Jahna took him home in May 2010. Although Jahna is heartbroken at her loss, she cherished this very special and loving cat for close to 4 years. And she is so thankful to all of you who sponsored Rhett.

All of us at Animal League America extend our condolences to Jahna and to Rhett’s sponsors, whose generosity enable us to give animals with special needs the lifelong care they need. Thank you for all you do and will continue to do.
