Baldwin Park Animal shelter

Daisy (Betty) in a joint rescue effort with our friends Hope For Paws Sweet little daisy is safe.

She will be having staged surgeries due to the complexity of her medical needs.

Yesterday was one of two, she had her large hernia repaired by the incredible CARES Team… thank you Dr Pedraza for working so hard and late into the night on her.

Her foster family really stepped up when she had nobody. And we can’t rescue without fosters.

Welcome to a new world little lady… we promise no more suffering for you.

Sophia (Cha Cha)

For the first time in her young life she is peeing normal.

Her liver/kidney elevations have normalized.

She’s still in recovery but we are hopeful she will continue to heal.

This is one of the toughest undertakings we’ve done as a rescue.

Lucy Pearl - this sweet girl has really come out of her shell and is truly sparkling. Her love for humans is unmatched. She has every reason to not trust people; but she loves people more than anything. Her tail goes crazy when someone comes to visit her.

Lucy is healed inside and out. Surgery removed her tumor, her dental fixed her teeth. She now needs a home of her own. She does well with all people.

▪️ only dog home
▪️ someone who can give her lots cuddles
▪️ fully understands her needs

Pierre has been kind of challenging, his medical and separation anxiety have been more than we expected.

I always say - you really don’t know what you are getting until you get them.

He has a severe collapsing trachea which we are now starting him on SAC formulation (compounded medication). The other meds aren’t helping to alleviate his endless coughing/hacking.

His fosters have been champs going through this and losing sleep, but still giving it their all.

I hope the new med helps him.

A disregarded street dog from south central LA. His stray hold is up and we can officially say he’s now part of @baloojasfoundation in normal fashion he’s had many medical issues. He’s cleared all of them, last procedure will be a much needed dental.

Please Consider a donation. We never did a fundraiser for him because we had him on stray hold. We paid for all the medical which was 2k. So please consider helping out.

Thank you @catinla for saving him and doing foster home check.

OC shelter Survivor - Joey

We ended up proceeding with a full mouth extraction and we were able to stabilize the mandible. We will be able to confirm the success of the mandible procedure in about 6 months.

He will be monitored closely. The good news he ate all his dinner.

The blood is dried and normal after a surgery like this. Don’t worry he’s in great hands.

Thank you CARES TEAM… love you guys!

Pierre has his surgery today.

6 stones in his urethra and several more in his bladder. He also lost several diseased teeth.

We want to thank the CARES team for taking his case on and so quickly. The quality of care they give is absolutely incredible.

Thank you @hopeforpawsrescue for partnering with us on his case. I don’t think anyone really understands the lengths you go to help so many animals in need. Truly a blessing ❤️

This sweet boy is going into foster care with one of our favorite foster families the Rohde’s also known as the fountain of youth fosters.

Daisy - from Tijuana, Mexico

When we agreed to take Daisy like with most dogs we never really know what we are getting in terms of medical or behavior.

Daisy looked pretty good in pictures and in person, but what we couldn’t see was the inside of her body.

Daisy had multiple mammary tumors, ehrlichia, masses under her coat, and a terrible infected mouth.

We had to proceed with caution, first treating her ehrlichia (tick borne) this messes with a dogs ability to coagulate blood so surgery could cause them to bleed out.

One this was cured we tackled all the masses which thankfully were benign. Today she had her last of 3 surgeries, today she had her much needed dental. She lost two teeth and her smile is oh so pretty 😍

Whats even better news? Her foster family can now officially adopt her. We never adopt dogs out until a veterinarian clears them medically.

So in honor of her adoption how about we raise funds to pay for it and for dogs like her who join our rescue??

Thank you Dr Clark and @pethealthcenter for helping us in healing this very special girl.

Garfield is living the dream. He was rescued by our friends @hopeforpawsrescue and taken directly to CARES hospital where all his medical needs were addressed. After he was cleared medically he went to foster with our good friend Cheryl. She worked with him to build his confidence and trust. Soon after that he landed the perfect home with a family who absolutely adores him.

Updates are the best part of rescue.

Who remembers Don Julio now Kevin? Rescued from A street and presumed deceased…

@eri.esq saved him from the road and contacted us asking for help.

He went to our friends at CARES where he was given top notch medical care. They truly are the reason he’s so happy & loved today. They do this work from the heart which is beautiful.

Our friends Hope For Paws helped us with his care, and not jus the basics, they also helped get his vision back. He had cataract surgery @eyecareforanimals and was able to see again after years of not being able too. To watch a dog see again, and to see his little tail go so fast with excitement was one of the most heartwarming moments in our lives.

@jaaden424 took him to so many vet appointments and made sure he always had what he needed.

This was absolutely one of my favorite rescue stories.

The kindness of people working to make difference. It’s incredible guys, just incredible.

Kevin is living the dream now. 🎉

On April 15, 2021 Dottie was rescued from West Los Angeles Shelter. Taking her on we knew she was hospice/palliative care.

Her foster dad Michael Gambill took on the challenge as he has a soft spot for yorkies. Dottie had major medical problems that we addressed including FHO Surgery, Mass removals, Spay and dental. Her recovery was amazing considering all she had going on. Over the past few months Dottie “Dot” developed severe dementia. I’ve been doing rescue many years and I think it’s the worst I’ve ever seen.

Her dad did absolutely EVERYTHING to help her. The past few days its been getting worse so the decision which was extremely difficult was to help this little girl cross on to heaven. Dementia is such a horrible disease and from day one we knew she had it.

Today with her dad by her side, this little angel peaceful passed away.

thank you Michael, I know your heart is broken, but just know you changed her life. Thank you friend.

thank you everyone who donated to her care and cheered her on.

Big thank you Hope For Paws & CARES for all you did to help her we are so thankful to your kindness and love.

Rest In Peace, Dot… we will all miss you. Look after your dad and bother Baxter from heaven.

Dottie wasn’t a statistic, she won! Her life mattered and she died knowing it. A heart full of love. That’s all we can ask for.

Today was probably one of the hardest days for me in rescue.

When we rescued Harley we knew it was going to be brief. What I wasn’t prepared for was how attached she would be to me and love to cuddle. I had a instant attachment to her. I understand why the shelter loved her so much.

She was on many meds to help her feel better, but this morning she took a rapid decline and her skin became extremely jaundice. She was unable to keep down and food or water.

As brutal as the decision was, we opted to let her be free of the body causing her immense pain.

Today with me by her side telling her how beautiful she is and how much I love her, sweet little Harley took one last painful breath and made her next journey. I love to imagine my Balooja and Georgie welcoming her to a painfree eternity.

Sweet girl, I’m so sorry life wasn’t fair to you, I’m so glad you died knowing you mattered and that you weren’t alone or afraid. I love you so much. I was happy to be you dad in the end.

Fly free my sweet sweet girl. I love you. 😢😞

PLEASE HELP!! Need a rescue for this adorable pitty!!! Please share around as well when you get a free sec! ❤ Hey everyone!! I have a Super sweet and lovable dog that really needs rescuing and safety from being put down by the shelter. 
 PLEASE HELP RESCUE this sweet good dog ASAP! VAN NUYS, CA EAST VALLEY SHELTER ( ID: #A1947920 ). 
 Me and my family adopted this beautiful pitty about 2 weeks ago. His name is Hercules and is about 3 yrs old. He is such a happy friendly looking pup that loves to play and is very good on walks! Unfortunately we had to give him up (On 8/9/20) as my parents are not as strong enough as they used to be to train and give him the attention he needs. We recently lost our red nose pitty of 13 years and were just devastated and hoped to get a new pit as a much needed distraction. 
 There was just a misunderstanding. He growled a couple times and went to snap at my father. However my mother accidentally tried to get attached to him a bit too quickly and smothered him with hugs and kisses near the face and our dog wasnt comfortable or broken in our family yet. We have been training him too hard we found out right out of rescuing him and it was just too much stimulus all at once. For that reason we had to surrender our dog because my mother is now fearful of him but I feel it was just a misunderstanding. I understand her POV at the same time. I know he is a great pup! We deduced that he does not like to have two arms wrap around him for a hug. One arm hugs, pats on the head and petting his body he loves though. He could have been treated badly by previous owners. However he is so happy and loves attention from people and does NOT react aggressively to other dogs seen on walks. We believe that he just needs more attention with a rescue or someone who is way more experience at taking care of pits than we are. 
 PLEASE, he is such a great dog and it saddened me so much to have to surrender him back to the shelter. I don’t want him to be killed by the shelter and am begging anyone who knows someone/rescue who can take him in and give this happy pup the life he deserves! He is smart and has a friendly predisposition!
