Update (2/12/2016):

Maizy is safe in a loving Foster home. She is NOT pregnant!! But, according to our Vet, she did recently have a litter of puppies, whereabouts unknown. And clearly this was not her fist litter, but it will absolutely be her last!

She is currently being treated for a Candida flare up, which has caused secondary bacterial and fungal infections on her skin, ears and eye! Poor girl will be on meds for a few wks and Vet checked again. She has to wait to get spayed until done with the steriods.

So far we have already spent over $300 on Maizy’s Vet care and special grain free diet. She still needs; several weeks of ear, eye and skin antibiotics, medicated bathes, spayed, microchipped and HW, flea/tick preventatives. We would greatly appreciate Sponsors, for her Vet bills.

PLEASE consider a donation today….this sweet, gentle soul has had a rough life. She deserves a healthy, happy ending! We need YOUR support to get her there. Every little bit adds up, is greatly appreciated and tax deductible!

For more info and pix, follow her story on our facebook page.


Original Post:

Possibly, pregnant Senior Yellow Lab was reported dumped at a church in southern WV. Neighbors had been feeding her, as she faithfully awaited her family’s return! Apparently she has been living like this for nearly a year!!  =(

As soon as the post came across the newsfeed, our volunteers jumped into action to Rescue this poor Mama.  Even though she was 4-5 hrs away, the power of social media saves another precious life!! And her possibly puppies too!

With the help of amazing Rescue friends in the area, they were able to catch her and offer temporary Foster care until we can get her Vet checked and Health Certificate to bring to Pittsburgh, PA area.

Then of course her and all her puppies will need fully Vetted.  As well as lots of puppy food, pee pads, teething toys, etc that will be needed for atleast 8 wks, until they are ready for adoption.

We are an all volunteer, 501c3 Foster based Rescue.  Which means, 100% of the donations we receive go directly to the animals we serve, and are tax deductible!  Please consider supporting AATO by Sponsoring this sweet Mama and her babies, so they can get the healthy, happy endings they deserve! Without your generous support, we simply can not save dogs like her, who deserve a second chance.
