Fosters!

Fosters!

This puppy is Bullet, Bullet was a puppy in Texas who was sprayed in the face with pepper spray and was blinded. Instead of his family rushing him to the vet and then coddling him and helping him learn how to navigate his world, he was dumped in a high kill shelter, alone and scared. I got the plea to save this little puppy's life and I rushed into action to get him on a flight from Texas to Maryland, to get him set up with an eye care specialist, and to give him some well deserved love. I knew the first thing I needed to line up was a foster, so I sent out an urgent request to my network and to my social media accounts to see if anyone could foster him. I knew my home wouldn't work for him, I had 4 dogs already, 3 of my own and 1 foster, 1 cripple, 1 senior going through chemo, 1 service dog, and the puppy I had just rescued from NYCACC. I needed someone who would make this puppy their number one priority, someone who would be able to be home with him a lot as he got use to being blind and someone who could be patient with him while he healed both physically and emotionally. I begged, called in favors and even offered compensation, and I still came up empty. I couldn't find a single person to sign up to take him on and I finally decided, I had to let this one go. I can't save them all and I can't rescue a dog and not be 100% sure I'm the best place for him. I spent my day crying for this little puppy I had never met that was never given a chance. It's a harsh reality of this business and many rescues and shelters shield the public from the truth but I think it's important to know the dark side, the ugly and dirty of animal rescue. This puppy died because I couldn't help him, because no one could help him. Every rescue I know is so bogged down with request to rescue one dog or another and WE WANT TO SAVE THEM ALL but more of them slip through our fingers than we save.We need help, we need you to foster, to donate, to volunteer.
