Check out Mama's special girl Mercy meeting young Riley at Pawtucket Shelter

Check out Mama's special girl, Mercy, meeting young Riley at Pawtucket Shelter. Both of these dogs are looking for their forever homes. They are both pretty special and would be great "starter dogs" for some lucky adopters.

Please note, Riley was just fine after his unfortunate body slam in the video; poor little guy got too excited for his own good!

You can head down to the shelter and fill out an application if you might be interested in either of these dogs!

Adoptable Sully is hoping everyone is having a great start to their week.

What Sully is missing in the eye department he more than makes up for in the heart department.

I was back at Coventry Animal Hospital again today. Signs still say my ulcer is bleeding in my stomach as a result of a new medicine we tried for my painful legs. Today I got some subcutaneous fluids (see the hump in my shoulder) and Dr. Levy and Melissa checked my vitals and we have been in daily contact with my vet, Dr. Lester.

We are still treating the ulcer and added in something else to... View more »

Update! We were able to rescue the mom of the one surviving kitten yesterday and she has arrived safely at one of our partner shelters! Since mama cat is only five months old, and no longer has milk, they will not be reunited.

The surviving kitten has been named Tali. She is still impatient at Bay State Hospital but will be discharged tomorrow! She is eating and drinking on her own just fine.... View more »

Here is foster dog Tyson getting lots of love from Jacqueline.

Although Tyson has moved to foster care, once recovered from his ACL surgery he is still hoping for a forever home to avoid returning to shelter life!

My stomach is still upset today. We think the new medicine called Gallaprent that I started last week for the pain in my legs has irritated the ulcer in my stomach. We stopped the Galliprent on Wednesday when I started throwing up, and started me on Cerenia for the nausea.

I have stopped throwing up but my appetite has not fully returned and my stool is dark and loose so we think that darned... View more »

Good Morning to our Handsome Dan's Rescue family. The little orange girl we showed you yesterday has survived the night.

Here's the story, and we will need many more prayers and well wishes as Mama and Trish return to the location mid-day today.

Last week Jacqueline and Dave met a very nice lady who is feeding strays in her neighborhood. She told us they are multiplying, and she is doing her... View more »

Goodnight friends. For now we will leave you with this photo of a four week old kitten who is likely now going to be ok.

We had a dramatic afternoon and will be happy to fill you in tomorrow. For now, please keep her in your thoughts as she will be having a blood transfusion, fluids, iron and supportive care inpatient with our friends at Bay State Veterinary Emergency Services.

Remember last night how I said I had a tummy ache? Well I may have minimized it a bit so as not to alarm my friends. I threw up several times the night before last but then seemed ok yesterday. But then last night I started to feel awful again and by 1AM I was barking and drooling so I went to Ocean State Veterinary Specialists.

Mama worries, as you know, so we wanted to know what was going... View more »
