Collar for Collar – October Partner

Collar for Collar has selected us to be their partner for the month of October.

Collar For Collar was created by a group of people who share a deep love and passion for dogs. As you know, dogs enrich our lives beyond words, so they decided to turn our passion and love for them into action in order to help dogs in need of resources. They have done so by building a brand and product line that is dedicated to the sole cause of saving dogs from inhumane, unhappy, and unhealthy lives. 

Their signature item, an ultra soft and stretchy blended T-Shirt, features an icon tag on each neckline and hem (or collar) that symbolizes the impact your purchase has made towards saving dogs (your collar for their collar). Simple, yet profound!

Visit their website, collarforcollar.com, and at check out select Midwest Animal ResQ. Half of the profit from your purchases will be donated back to us.

Thank you for your support!

Prince

I’m sorry for the graphic picture, but wanted to share his story, it’s a story I see repeated way too often.

This dog was dumped in the country, I think people believe that if they dump their dog in the country, the dog will live out some fairy-tale farm life, frolicking in the open fields. This is NOT what happens. More often than not, the dogs are hit by cars, starve, or are shot by local farmers, when the dogs become a nuisance chasing cattle and knocking over trash bins. There is no animal control in the country, no animal shelters…many folks, take in as many dogs as they can, but when/if these dogs start to threaten their livelihood (the livestock), there is no where to turn for help. It’s a terrible problem, and it’s not the fault of the farmer, it’s the fault of the ignorant and irresponsible person who dumped this dog in the first place. We shall call him Prince, and he is coming to us today. he was shot in the face, and he survived. We will need your help to heal him; physically and mentally.

Prince

 

Prince went to the vet where he was sedated so that they could clean his wound and put in a drain, and X-ray.  Once the x-ray came back, Prince went into emergency surgery for the bone infection, to try to remove the bullet, and to wire his jaw back together.

Prince will be in the hospital for at least a few more days. He is on IV fluids and antibiotics, and is in pretty good spirits considering.

Below is the bullet removed from Prince. Our resident gun expert had to say: “That’s one tough pup! That’s a .45 cal 250gr wadcutter. generally just stops grown men in their tracks, developed by the military.”
The fact that he’s survived is pretty amazing!

Prince is in great spirits. Every person who has met him remarks what amazingly sweet boy he is. Despite what people have done to him and how much pain he is in, he meets every new person with a wag. I know I say it often….but we can all learn a lot from our dogs!
