As many people know, every year, California is on fire. Blazes are raging through our state quicker than we can put them out and humans and animals alike are suffering. 

Rambo is a six month old puppy who’s family was urgently evacuated from their home in Santa Clarita when the Tick Fire ravaged through their town. Out of pure panic by his owners, he was placed in a truck bed in order to evacuate the quickest. Unfortunately, he jumped out and was severely injured. All four of his limbs are missing the pads and the bottom portion of his legs are degloved.

When we heard of this poor boy, we knew we had to help. He needed months of ongoing care and bandage changes to his paws and legs. His very grateful family who could not afford his care, came to visit him each and every week that he was in our care. They could not imagine life without him. And that is why our focus for all our programs is to keep pets with their families. Sometimes people fall on hard times and just need a little help.

Rambo is now fully healed and is back with his loving family.
