Saving Sam -- Friday October 14th, 2022
The rescue world has high and lows, it is full of rewards and heartbreaks. Sam's story sends us through the gamut of emotions.
We were asked to help Sam, a stray cat that was found in Flower Mound, just outside of Dallas. Though were were told Sam was in a grave situation, we weren't preferred for what we saw when we met sweet Sam.
Sam had a trap hanging from his leg, and it had been there for a while. The leg was horribly infected. Sam was in horrible pain and his movement was severely impeded so finding food was an almost impossible task. The life of a street cat is hard at the best of times, poor Sam couldn't find himself in a much worse situation.
We rushed Sam to our vet partner, Metro Paws, and his leg was amputated up into the shoulder. This saved Sam's life. Sam didn't find the adjustment to being a tri-pawed easy, but with the love and support of his foster mom Sam is now all smiles and has found his forever home with none other than his wonderful foster.
Traps like the one found on Sam are not legal, but without information from the public leading to a suspect we can do no more than be thankful that Sam is now safe and happy and will never have to suffer again.
Lifesaving work that this is only possible thanks to your donations. If you would like to support our rescue work please consider a donation to Animal Allies of Texas.
If you would consider opening your home to an animal in need please consider becoming a foster with Animal Allies of Texas. You provide the love and care, we provide everything else.
Transport for Callie -- Monday December 16th, 2019
AAT was contacted by a lady in East Texas who was desperately asking for help as she could no longer care for a puppy in her home. That puppies name was Callie and she was a 4 month old hound mix. While we were unable to bring Callie in to the group due to no availability with fosters we did not stop there. One of our loving volunteers and board members reached out to a local partner known as Passport For Paws. After speaking to them she knew what she had to do. She picked up sweet Callie and with the funds from our Saving Grace Fund she was able to fully vaccinate Callie making her eligible for transport. Callie is currently now in Wisconsin awaiting her forever home. We do not know where Callie would of ended up but we are glad she is not in the shelter nor homeless somewhere.
The statement it takes a village is no small statement. All rescues work together towards a common goal and that is to minimize the amount of animals on the streets and suffering. We thank all of you ranging from our volunteers, fosters, transporters, and those who donate for making all of this possible. our generosity and kind hearts do not go unnoticed. I know Callie definitely appreciates every piece of it.
