Late Night Facebook Rescue

I’ve been trying to spend less time on my phone as it eats up a big part of my day, but last night I’m sure glad I couldn’t sleep and decided to “Facebook”.

Tonya, in Tennessee, used to foster for our rescue. She was contacted by her rescue colleague in TN about this little pup, Charlie, who had been adopted by a couple she knew in Arizona. The pup is not eating or drinking and is wasting away because the new owners cannot afford the vet care the pup needs. The breeder refused to return the adopters calls and emails.

Tonya’s friend was trying to figure out a way to get the little golden pup from Arizona to Tennessee.

Tonya reached out to me on Facebook to ask if we could help.

I told her to have the family get the pup to the ER vet as a pup this small is very much at risk of dehydration and worse and our rescue would pay and figure out how to get the pup to us when, and if, he recovered.

I also gave her the contact information for the three golden retriever rescue groups in Arizona and said contact them.

Well, within 30 minutes Golden Retriever Rescue of Arizona was meeting the pup at the ER vet.

I’ve asked to be updated on the pup, but if we don’t hear anymore, we helped thanx to your for donating funds.

Leave it in the store!

 

While these treats look cute and festive for the holiday season; they are dangerous and even deadly.  Please do not buy cheap Christmas treats! Spread the word and choose to spend time with your pups in front of a nice warm fire during the holidays and not at the emergency vet.

The majority of these treats come from China.  They are made from cattle or horse hides and start the process by being soaked in toxic sodium sulphide to remove the hair and fat. Then it is soaked in more chemicals to split the hide into layers before it is washed with hydrogen peroxide to give off a “pure” appearance and hide the rancid smell.  Furthermore, the festive Christmas colors and holidays shapes are also a concern.

These treats have tested to show traces of arsenic, mercury, chromium and formaldehyde.  If that wasn’t enough to make you sick how about these treats also regularly cause intestinal blockages, poisoning from chemical residue and chocking.

Instead of feeding your pets this crap, that should not be sold in stores, please choose other GRRSM approved treats such as Bully chews from Best Bully Sticks and Earth Animal No Hide treats.
