Today is the first day of our #GivingTuesday impact countdown! During the week leading up to #GivingTuesday on November 28th, we are sharing stories that show how Wonder Dogs benefit from the support of our donors, volunteers, and fosters. 

 

Our first story is about Bebe, a lovable girl who came to us with severe visual impairment as well as neurological and ​senior-related medical issues including seizures. ​As soon as we got Bebe, we took her to the vet where blood work and x-rays showed liver disease and musculoskeletal problems. We got her started on pain meds, anti-inflammatory meds, and liver supplements to stabilize her symptoms and improve her quality of life.

 

WDR founder Linda then fostered Bebe until she was adopted into her forever home where Bebe is now happy and comfortable.

 

On November 28, 2017 your donation to Wonder Dog Rescue could be DOUBLED! That’s because on #GivingTuesday Facebook and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be matching up to $2 million of funds raised for U.S. nonprofits through Facebook. Additionally, Facebook is waiving all fees for donations to nonprofits on #GivingTuesday. Click on the Donate button on our Facebook page starting at 5am on Tuesday, November 28th to help us impact the lives of the dogs who need it the most.

 

 

Our second #GivingTuesday impact countdown story is about Bella Luna, a petite senior who was in terrible pain from severe dental disease when she arrived at Wonder Dog Rescue.Bella could barely eat because of her mouth, and she required hand cooked foods and many small feedings. After​ ​​her dental surgery and a few weeks of TLC from one of our fosters, Bella Luna became a total love bug who was ready to go to her forever home.

 

Today she’s living the good life with a wonderful ​woman who loves to snuggle with her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Thanksgiving, the third day of our #GivingTuesday impact countdown, we want to express gratitude to the foster families and volunteers who make our work possible. We would not be able to impact the lives of so many dogs without the support of our generous and selfless volunteers and foster families. 

 

Some of the things our enthusiastic volunteers help with are staffing adoption events, office work, and grooming, walking, and transporting dogs. Experienced fosters enable us to rehabilitate dogs who need medical and psychological support before they can be adopted into their forever homes

 

 

 

 

For our fourth #GivingTuesday impact countdown story we want to tell you about a very special little girl named Coco. Coco came to Wonder Dog Rescue when she was only 9 weeks old and very sick. Coco’s original family was overwhelmed by her severe medical issues and knew that Wonder Dog would get her the care she needed.Coco suffered from water on the brain (hydrocephalus) and a seizure disorder.

 

Though her survival chances seemed slim, medical tests revealed there were treatments that could help her. Coco needed 24/7 monitoring for the first few weeks, as we struggled to get her seizures under control. She was adopted after her health stabilized. Unfortunately, a year later that family could no longer keep Coco and brought her back to us.

 

Coco is currently living with a WDR foster family. The good news is that Coco is a happy and active three year old who loves to play and wrestle.

 

 

 

Our fifth #GivingTuesday impact countdown story is about Brownie, a senior and one of our “fospice” dogs. Shelter dogs like Brownie are sometimes too ill for adoption, so we make them available as Permanent Foster/Hospice dogs and pay for their medical care.

 

Brownie was facing euthanasia at SFACC when we pulled him out. He was cranky, visually impaired, and had horrible dental disease. Still, he won the hearts of one amazing Wonder Dog foster family and they decided to take him in. Brownie received dental surgery and began to enjoy life. He loved to travel and camp with the family. Sadly, Brownie also had cancer, and in the end, this is what took his life. Despite the sadness on our parts, we take comfort knowing that Brownie truly enjoyed the end of his life thanks to the WDR fospice program.
