HELP DOGS IN NEED

Save Our Scruff does whatever we need to do in order to make sure our dogs are living a healthy, happy life. Unfortunately, that can come with a very large price tag. Please consider helping one of our pups below so that we can bring in & rescue other dogs in need.


MR. T
$1000 needed

Mr T was a dude we met in Mexico in September 2018. He came to Backstreet Dogs looking like concrete so when we met him, although he was rough, he was progressing amazingly with the care and attention he had received from such kind rescuers. Fast forward to February 2019, when SOS came back to visit, we noticed Mr T was in worse shape than before. We learned from his rescuers that they had done as much work as could be done at the shelter, but that they believed the sun at the shelter was not allowing him to heal properly, along with other factors like he was not taking to the food they buy and that he just generally was stressed at the shelter and it was showing on his appearance. Unfortunately, a long-term residence like Mr T already creates many financial concerns for a rescue that is strictly run from donations, and it was explained that the rescue was unable to provide him with more intensive care due to financial restrictions. This is a very real reality for our international partners who do not have a stable income and also have so many unexpected expenses that arise from things like dogs being abandoned at the shelter and global sicknesses that affect the entire shelter at times. 

So, SOS did what we thought was right and left the shelter that day with Mr T so that we could set him up to be boarded at the vet to receive special care. Getting him out of the sun for one was needed, but also having him at the vet meant we could get him set up with frequent medicated baths as well as a full exam. 

Mr T is doing GREAT! He loves his bath massages (body looking like milk) and has taken a love to special dietary food that he will likely be on for life. His life is less stressed as a senior, being able to enjoy his calmer downtime being exposed to less stimulation than when he was at the shelter. We can’t wait for Mr. T to be ready to fly, but he still has a few months to continue gaining weight, healing his skin, growing hair and gaining general health. 

Please send positive vibes his way!

YESITO
$750 needed FOR dental

Yesito had a dental to remove some broken/infected teeth and had general surgery to remove a wire from his bottom jaw and a plate across his nose that was put there to help it heal while it was broken. Unfortunately it was causing Yesito a lot of issues and discomfort so it had to be removed. Now he is much more comfortable!

Shirley.JPG

SHIRLEY
$1200 needed FOR surgeries

Meet SHIRLEY. She is one of our most recent bullmastiffs that we were able to take into Lynden to get fixed. Shirley WAS a breeding female, which simply means she was used her whole life to produce puppies. Getting her spayed and promising not to use her body as a factory is something we are thrilled to be able to give her. But this isn't all we're planning on giving her. Shirley has lived in pain and discomfort her whole life because of an eye defect in BOTH her eyes. But guess what, we get to change that for her. I'd say this girl has won the lottery and we can't wait for her to be fully comfortable for the first time ever.

Lucky.png

LUCKY
$3750 needed for training

Lucky isn’t feeling so lucky. He’s in training right now for behaviour that he developed through no fault of his own. He’s been failed by humans. Pretty unfair right? 

It’s so easy to turn a blind eye when a dog isn’t sitting in a shelter anymore. Unlike medical issues that make people feel good to donate money for, people still subconsciously blame the dog when he needs training. Please consider donating to this guy's training and give him the chance he deserves!
