South of Houston in Santa Fe, Texas approximately 100 dogs are in desperate need of urgent help after their rescuer walked away leaving them in a facility that will be sold in January. These animals are in cramped cages and have not received the medical attention, a clean environment or basic exercise while in the care of this former rescuer. The caring people at Triumphant Tails have stepped in to help get medical care for the most urgent animals. They are unable to take over the facility and need help from other rescues to save these dogs from an uncertain future. Help from the public is also needed in the form of volunteers and donations to cover the mounting costs.
Triumphant Tails wrote, “Among the hustle and bustle of the holiday season remain the innocent, precious lives of a little more than 100 dogs who need our help. Their soulful gazes and desperate cries for help have been heard by us… and we feel certain that their stories will touch your hearts as well.
The facility is not set up to handle many “hands-on” volunteers. There are employees on-site each day to care for the animals. Donations of mid-grade dog food (wet and dry) are always needed and greatly appreciated. Please call in your donation to the Texas City Feed Store at 409-945-7731. Blankets are also needed (no comforters with “stuffing” please!). There are bags of laundry needing to be washed so that they can be re-used. If anyone has time to help with that, please let us know.
Anyone wishing to make a tax-deductible donation to help with veterinary care and supplies may do so via Paypal to kymann@TriumphantTails.net or by calling in a donation to Angel Animal Hospital directly at 713-944-2424. Please mention that your donation is for “Buddy’s Friends”.
Please note that Triumphant Tails, Inc. is merely offering SUPPORT to the owners of the facility known as Buddy’s Friends. We are NOT taking over the facility, nor are we making any final decisions where the fate of the animals is concerned. We are doing our best to provide supplies, veterinary care, guidance, and any other help that is needed as we are able to offer it. We hope that you will join us in our efforts.”
