Mended Mutts

All of the dogs that come to Canine Lifeline are very dear to us but we have a special fondness for those we affectionately call our “mended mutts”. These are dogs who come to us with medical issues that make their chances of adoption at a shelter or dog pound very slim. While their medical needs may differ: some have heartworms, others need surgery to repair broken bones or dislocated hips, while still others have painful skin conditions…they all share a spirit and will to live that make it a joy and privilege to help them. To see the sparkle in their eyes and spring in their step when they are on the mend is priceless! We can’t help them though without support from caring people like you. Please consider making a donation to help our very special “mended mutts” have a second chance at a happy life. If you would like information about the dogs shown below, just click on their picture. Thank you!

Brownie was the most gentle, sweet, and loving 5 year-old Chocolate Lab. It's absolutely heartbreaking to watch a dog go through this when the disease is ...
