A final recap post from an incredible, life saving, gold star weekend:
🌟 90 pets altered and vaccinated and sent home with wonderful and much needed donations (collars, leashes, food and more)
🌟 1 unexpected bladder stone surgery thanks to the keen eye of the surgery team
🌟 countless community members went home with wonderful donations like food, toiletries and more
🌟 Two great days of tireless work
🌟 One SNIP Bus-Spay Neuter Imperative Project to perform the surgeries in and one incredible vet and surgery team
🌟 SEVEN new additions to the FDR family (posted below) - they are now in loving fosters homes where we will get to more about them, their needs and their ideal forever home environments - more to come on these cuties
Thank you all for your piece of the pie. We can’t do this work without each of you.
✨UPDATE: Thank you all so much for your generous donations. Chase (now named Freddie) should recover fully and have a long life ahead of him. Your gracious donations will allow FDR to rescue, treat and rehab this sweet little guy. Look for updates as we go.
➡️We are still looking for a foster for this adorable boy - he is 3 months old, around 12 lbs and will need crate rest and daily meds.⬅️
…and that’s a wrap…NOT QUITE
We have had an incredible weekend of spay, neuter and vaccinations helping a very underserved community and it’s animals and people in need. A total of 9️⃣0️⃣ pets were spayed and neutered between Saturday and Sunday thanks to the SNIP bus, it’s Bakersville vet team, Elizabeth and her dedication to this community and FDRs sponsorship. So many unwanted litters are now avoided and so many more animals are vaccinated and those pets and their owners are going home with much needed donations like food, collars, leashes and toiletries.
But as many of you who follow us know, our rescue impact doesn’t usually end where we expect it to. A few more pups are joining the FDR family this weekend, including one special guy who, unfortunately was hit by a car last night before his scheduled neuter. He is a three month old, very sweet boy, who potentially has a broken shoulder and other injuries. We will be taking him right to our vet partner, Insight Vet for an exam. It looks as though he will need surgery and for this we will need your help. Please consider donating to this little guy’s care. You can donate through the button below or the donate button on our website.
We also need a name for this sweet boy and would love your help please comment below with your suggestions.
Day 2️⃣: FDR Sponsored SNIP bus happening now!
More lives are being saved by spaying and neutering in Modesto today. FDR’s second sponsored day is going on now. Each dog will leave spayed or neutered, vaccinated and with some goodies thanks to the donations from our amazing supporters.
Thank you to everyone who has made this possible!
🐕We like big mutts and we cannot lie!🏆
Rescue never stops and while we are helping to spay and neuter pets in the Central Valley, more of our puppies are becoming available for adoption!
These E pups are 🌟LARGE🌟 breed (expected to be around 80-100lbs) mastiff/shepherd puppies.
Eureka and E-Scotia are both males and E-Miranda is a little (ok, big) lady. They are currently around 3 months old and ready to go to their FURever homes.
They are spayed and neutered, microchipped, dewormed, have had 2 of their 3 puppy vaccines and the third is included in their adoption fee of $300.
If you are interested in adopting and are willing to commit to them growing to potentially triple digits, please submit your adoption applications on our website - foothilldogrescue.org.
🚂 Day 1: ALL ABOARD 🚂
All the pups we picked up are being offloaded to the SNIP bus for today’s alters.
These are just some of the dogs and people we are helping today! We are so happy to partner with the amazing SNIP Bus-Spay Neuter Imperative Project team to make a much needed difference.
For more info on the SNIP bus, visit snipbus.org
🚌…and we’re off! 💨 The journey has begun!
Jacky, from FDR, is heading down with a van FULL of donations, crates and lots of love. Not only do we have an incredible amount of donations for the pets, thanks to Ann Yonemura and friends, we have donations for their owners and others in need in the area.
We will keep you posted on the weekend with updates and probably foster pleas - there are so many pets in need, it is tough to come back without our rescue growing by a few 🐾. Please reach out to Eileen or submit a foster app if you are able to help!
Huge shout out to Lissa Mcbride and Sarah Dempsey who’s incredible Tetris skills allowed us to pack as much as we did!
See you soon, Modesto!
🚌 Foothill Dog Rescue is sponsoring the SNIP bus for this coming weekend 🚌
We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has donated to make this possible: our anonymous adopter, Bark Avenue, Dogs Down Under, and individual donors of both monetary donations and supplies. We are looking forward to another weekend of making a difference in an underserved community in need.
We expect to go down and transport dogs to the SNIP bus and back to their owners, but our plans don’t always work out and rescue math doesn’t always add up, so we would like to put out a potential 🚨FOSTER PLEA🚨 for Sunday. We don’t know if or how many will be joining our rescue, but we know we can only help as many as we have fosters for. If you are a new foster, please apply on our website. If you are a returning foster with availability, please email email@example.com.
