On August 27th, 2020, our Animal Rescue Team set out to rescue and rehome dogs tortured in cruel medical experiments at a university in Mexico.
None of this would have been possible without the dedication of animal lovers like you. That’s why we want to make sure you have the chance to follow along with us every step of the way. Missed some of our live rescue updates? Check out our rescue recap!
The rescue mission is underway.
How are we rescuing these dogs?
We won’t leave any dog behind.
Success! Rescue mission accomplished.
As the journey continues, Flakita rests in her first bed.
Good news! Panda was adopted within the first hours of his arrival at the shelter.
Some not-so-good news—Flakita’s injured leg was in rough shape and needed to be amputated.
A visit to an orthopedic specialist veterinarian revealed that Flakita’s pelvis, leg and sciatic nerve suffered traumatic injury. The injury likely happened from a vehicle hitting her while she lived on the streets.
Her muscles atrophied so much that you could see the leg bone and all its curves under her fur. The top of her foot was so worn down from dragging her leg around that it looked like the bottom pad. Her foot joints flopped around when she walked.
That’s when you stepped in and made her surgery possible.
Thanks to you, Flakita is healing and recovering in her loving foster home. You made this whole rescue mission possible. We couldn’t do it without you.
The mission isn’t over yet. Your support is crucial to ending animal experimentation in our lifetime.
