Abandoned pups ...
Left by the side of the road at 10 weeks old with severe scabies (sarcoptic mange). These pups were brought in by animal control to be euthanized because of the very contagious nature of scabies and the severity of their infection. Our vet felt they could be saved and called to see if we could help. These pups were taken into isolation foster 4 weeks ago where they received care around the clock by their dedicated foster mom. We all had to take extreme measures to insure foster parents, their dogs and all the volunteers working with them were safe from contamination.
Today, only four weeks later these pups have had their second negative scraping which means they are no longer contagious. We will be keeping them a few more weeks to insure they do not reinfect and to work on strengthening them after their heavy round of medications.
We are accepting applications on them now and will be posting them individually over the next few weeks. Right now, we're just happy they're healthy pups.
You can keep up with their progress and learn more about these pups on our Facebook page or their Facebook page here.
Golden Bone Rescue and Rehab is a no kill organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abandoned, neglected and abused animals and thoughtfully placing them in safe and loving foster and permanent homes. We are committed to promoting local spay and neuter programs, which ultimately eases needless suffering in our animal community.
In 2002 co-founders Angela Windolph and Nadia Caillou came together to form Golden Bone Rescue & Rehab in an effort to relieve the suffering of as many animals as possible. Nadia had this notion that she wanted to save a million dogs in her lifetime and so the seed has been planted! WE started with the most difficult cases, with the Baldwin Park Chihuahua case in California (over 270 chis found in deplorable conditions) A group of these Chihuahuas came to us as feral with severe physical and mental conditions. Left to fend for themselves, they resorted to cannibalism. This case opened our eyes. Clearly the need for rehabilitation became as important as finding safe homes for traumatized animals. In fact, we realized none of these animals could be placed in permanent homes until they received the rehabilitation they needed.
GBRR is a 501c(3) non-profit group of caring volunteers, board members and supporters who provide community rescue of domestic companion animals. Located in the Verde Valley, we operate solely on individual donations and fundraising proceeds. Thus far, we’ve placed hundreds of needy animals in loving homes.
We believe in providing low cost spay/neuter programs and education in our community for the purpose of reducing the number of unwanted pets. All rescued animals are evaluated for temperament and personality by qualified staff members. This helps us place them in homes that are well suited to their needs and to the needs of the future owners.
We interface with local city, town and county animal control officers to reduce trauma to abused, neglected, an abandoned domestic pets, as well as to provide safe and supervised foster homes for those animals that have been scarred and damaged. We make every attempt to rehabilitate those animals with behavioral issues based on their traumatic life events.
