This Papillon/Pomeranian mix, no tags or microchip, was hit by a car this evening. He was in pretty bad shape, and the police officer who stopped was going to leave him at animal control, where he would have spent the night with no medical attention or comfort (that’s standard procedure). Thank goodness one of our volunteers was on his way home from work and saw this dog laying in the street along with the stopped squad car.
Brian immediately took this little pumpkin to the emergency vet. He has sustained quite a bit of trauma and will require hospitalization until he is stable enough to go to a foster home to (hopefully) recover.
We already have quite a bit of medical bills for the dogs and cats in our rescue, and this will add to it substantially. Our mission is to help those animals that need us the most, and this certainly qualifies. If you can help, even just a few dollars, please do. We can not continue to do what we do without your support.

This little guy (and he is the tiniest little peanut, he looks bigger in the photos) was 1) in a crowded shelter, contracted kennel cough, didn’t even make it onto the adoption floor, 2) is a bully breed, 3) has cropped ears and 4) he’s black. Four strikes against him in a VERY competitive environment.
We are hoping with each new intake we can find a “sponsor.” This little guy will be our first attempt at sponsorship. For a donation of $100, you will get: to name him, a 4×6 photo of him (better picture than the ones in the slideshow), an ABRA t-shirt, and for as long as he’s in rescue, an email update (with pics) from his foster family every 4 weeks until he is adopted. This is a great way for people who can’t foster or adopt to help! Or it would be a great gift for someone who is a pet lover as well!
Please keep in mind that unique names can go a long way towards making a dog stand out! He is very short, low to the ground, an absolute lover, wants to snuggle and hug everyone he meets and is the sweetest thing ever. If anyone would like to sponsor him, you can paypal the donation to ABRAangels@gmail.com We will immediately contact you to find out his name, get your shirt size, mailing address, etc.
