Oma Goodness!!!!

Look at that face! Holy cow! or rather... OMA GOODNESS!

Oma's shelter was begging for help. We took one look at this girl, giggled, then got serious. Did I say... Look at that face yet?!?

Well, on a serious note, Oma was examined by the shelters vet. She is a little run down right now from neglect. Before she is sharp, happy and healthy, Dogs XL Rescue had to commit to quite a medical bill.

Oma is heartworm positive and requires expensive heartworm treatment. She also has 2 spots on her skin that need to be removed, she was not spayed yet, her teeth have been neglected and have to be cleaned under anesthesia, and lastly, she has a cut on her eye that requires repairing. The prognosis for all of her "ailments" is excellent! Just wait, she will be looking at you with those sappy eyes, asking for a spot on your couch soon!

Please consider donating to Dogs XL Rescue's Critical Care Fund in order to help us care for Oma and dogs with similar plights.


When one of our shelter partners suffering, Dogs XL Rescue had to help. We grabbed Mack out of a possible horrible outcome when pits were being stolen from the shelter to be most likely be used as bait dogs. The shelter was faced with a horrible decision... do they euthanize the "pitty-looking" dogs to save them from a worse fate?

Mack is one of those dogs that was facing being stolen or euthanized. Luckily, he is safe at the vet right now getting treatment for his Heartworm positive status. The cost includes the medications, vet care and boarding at the vet to medically supervise him after his injections to make sure he is responding well.

Can you please help Dogs XL do what they do best? We save deserving dogs like Mack from horrible fates, give them the medical care they deserve and find them wonderful loving homes? The cost of his treatment is covered by donations such as yours! Can't foster? Can't help at events? Well, your donation helps a lot!
