Maverick Needs Your Help

He has suddenly become blind.

Happy Tails:! Recent Adoptions

We have many opportunities available for volunteers, whether it involves contact with the dogs, doing office work, volunteering at events or data entry from your home.  

Dogs who may otherwise be destroyed at an overcrowded shelter are temporarily placed with you, their foster family, until a forever family is found.

Pet Adoption

6 year old Benji is a Wheaten Terrier Mix.  These playful dogs are happy, sturdy, athletic and retain their puppy-like cheerful playfulness throughout their life.  

Maverick is a 5 month old puppy we recently rescued.  His foster reported he suddenly starting running into things as if he could not see. Our vet examined Maverick today and found him to be totally blind. He may have a condition called SARDS (sudden acquired retinal degeneration syndrome), but the blindness could be caused by a number of other conditions. Maverick needs to see a veterinary ophthalmologist to get a diagnosis and determine what treatment might be available. We are seeking donations to help with Maverick's ophthalmology expenses. Thank you from Wish Bone and from little Maverick, himself.
