Puppy Farm Rescue and Rehab

$20,090 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 306 people in 9 months
Created April 19, 2018
On Friday 13th April 2018,  Four small NSW  rescue groups came together to save 19 small dogs who were breeding stock at a puppy farm in the Hunter region. Most of these dogs were senior and no longer able to produce litters, others were just  unwanted. 

 All dogs have extensive health issues. These include rotten teeth requiring multiple extractions, mammary tumors,  infected ears and torn sheaths. One requires an eye removal, another has an inoperable cancer, others have severe heart murmurs. Many are unable to be rehomed due to their serious health issues and will now remain with their rescue groups to live out their remaining time with the love, care and affection they have been been without for so long.

The breeds include King Charles Cavaliers, Poodles, Cavoodles, Spitzs, Beagles  and Tibetan Spaniels.

We estimate the cost of the vet work  for all dogs to be $20,000, possibly much more. 

Photos of all the dogs can be found on the individual Facebook pages of Paterson Valley Dog RescueNova Pound Pooch IncPollanda Farm Rescue and Rehabilitation , and All Breeds Dogs Rescue

Direct donations to the individual Rescues can also be made via the pages above.

Every little bit helps and all donations are greatly appreciated.  Donations are also tax deductible.

So far, we have rehomed the elderly boy, Endo to a magical home where he is treasured, loved and respected.

Now ... Joy's turn.

Last week we had an application for another little dog in care. That dog was not right for this home & vice versa ..... but Joy - little Joyous - we felt deserved consideration. A meet and greet was arranged and what unfolded was the clincher.

Prior to the m&g Joy was the perfect little girl walking on lead in the park (reflective of her home prior to the puppy factory?? someone had put love and time into this little one at some stage of her life), taking in all the sights and sounds without a hitch, waiting to meet her potential new mum.

Well, whereas other dogs would be frightened, the wheelchair was absolutely of no concern to Joy. She immediately greeted the strangers and asked to be picked up - and who could refuse this little love - then proceeded to give kisses. Decision made - Joy had chosen her future.

So Joy's vetting was undertaken and a recovery period waited out before Joy could go to live on the farm with the company of loving family - both human and canine.

Yesterday Joy's carer updated us:

"Today this little bubba became someone else's little bundle of joy and they became Joy's happy ever after. I have never felt so right about an adoption as I feel about this girls but its still very difficult letting these special girls go, Joy being the first. Best wishes precious bub, may your life be everything it should have been from the beginning with many blessed years ahead of you. <3 <3 <3

On Monday we took Alicia, our beautiful chocolate poodle to a Sydney specialist to see if her tumors could be removed to give her a longer life.

Sadly it was not to be. Alicia's issues are many and serious and involve tumors on the kidney, uterus and adrenal gland as well as mammary tumors . Removing all of them would mean more than one operation and may not result in success. Instead, Paterson Valley Dog Rescue decided to bring her home and give her a loving home for as long as we can while she remains well and happy .

Meanwhile, Hilary, (8 year old Cavoodle) is resting at home recovering from her 3 hour surgery to remove a huge number of cysts and lesions in her abdomen caused by the numerous cesareans she was put through producing litter after litter. She will soon be ready for adoption to a very special home.

In very happy news, Benny, our senior Poodle , is ready for his new family! Benny has had extensive vet work for benign tumors and other lumps and bumps. Benny does have a slight heart murmur and some loss of vision but very much looking forward to his new, much more relaxed life!

We are so amazed at the generosity shown to these dogs and are forever grateful for your financial support.

A couple of updates:
From Hope's carer at Nova Pooch Rescue
Well, we have had overnight to absorb Hope's diagnosis. :-(

At yesterday's vetting we received the news that we were dreading. Hope's mammary tumours have metasticised and xray shows the base of the heart is affected and most likely the rest of her vital organs are affected as well.

This is so, so, so what we had hoped NOT to hear. However, with a tumour the size of a tennis ball and which had obviously been long standing, to be honest, we expected the worse. Expectations never make the hearing of it any easier.

Our lovely vet, Dr Karleah removed the lump and also removed 11 rotten and inflamed teeth. We chose not to add the burden of desexing or vaccination as she will remain with her carer for palliative care.

Our aim, as always is to provide sensible, sensitive care with quality of life a priority - and so we also decided against chemotherapy. We will instigate supportive therapies (with our vets blessings) and give this dear little girl all the love, care and respect which should have been her right from birth.

And in happier news from Nova

Small steps ..... might seem silly to some, but this morning Ardie slowly wagged his tail & "greeted" me with a soft look in his eyes! Not yet approaching of his own free will but it will come ;)
Of all Nova's puppy farm dogs, Ardie is the most fearful

From Paterson Valley Dog Rescue
Initially thought to have inoperable tumour, we are now taking Alicia to a Specialist in Sydney. As her tumour is attached to one kidney but the other kidney is healthy, its possible that her life could be saved. The cost could be in excess of $5000, and we have our appointment on Monday to investigate these options. Alicia is thought to be only about 7/8 years old so has a lot of life left to enjoy. We will update all after the specialist appointment.

Thank you again from Paterson Valley Dog Rescue, All Breeds Dog Rescue, Nova Pooch Rescue and Pollanda Farm Rescue and Rehabilitation
