UPDATE: unfortunately he passed away today. RIP sweet boy.

PSA: please give your animals shelter from the heat and access to plenty of water!!!!!

We just got the call that this sweet boy was found practically unresponsive and was rushed to the emergency vet.

He had heat stroke and vets are working hard to save his life.

Please keep an eye on your pets and make sure they are keeping cool. Heat stroke kills!

Any donations towards this sweet boys medical bills would be greatly appreciated ❤️

We are hoping he is able to pull through but will know more in the morning.

I will be waiting for the post rhat says he not only survived but thrived rhru rhe night. All good rhoughts going to this little one

What in the world is it going to take for people to understand that for the most part if it's too hot for you or too cold for you then it will be the same for your furbabies!!

Praying for this sweet baby to make a full recovery. Breaks my heart and makes me angry that a fur baby would be done like this. I hope this fur baby gets to go to a new home with humans who will love and care more then the one who neglected to proved something as simple as water.

Prayers for this sweet baby...and a new furever loving home!!

God be with this sweet fur baby. Amen . Look at the pain and fear I. His eyes .

So very sad and his death could have been prevented.

I can come by and donate after work

Praying for this sweet baby.... Just heartbreaking that so many people don't give these fur babies fresh water daily in this heat ...breaks my heart

Praying for this sweet baby. Thank god for all of you an what you do

Praying for that precious angel.

I pray this sweet dog....will pull through and make it...I hope everyone is protecting their animals from the heat...and giving them a lot of water. 💙

prayers for the babie

Prayers for healing for this sweet fur baby!

Please keep us updated please

Many prayers for this sweet baby 😘

Please keep us updated on this baby

RIP baby

This poor baby 😭😭

Prayers!

Chelsea Gahr do you need someone to come sit with him if so I can.

What babies do you have up for adoption

I have fostered 16 foster puppies over the last 6 months. In groups of 3, 2, 5, 5, & 1. I had them for as little as 1 week to as long as 1 1/2 months. This keeps them safe from diseases that other dogs may bring in and helps them learn how to be family friendly. I have loved all my fur babies!
