Meet Buttercup, the sweetest pup who is guaranteed to steal your heart. Buttercup, along with her sister Polly, were dumped at a Texas shelter in such poor states of neglect that Polly became septic and didn’t survive. Buttercup was in the same critical condition and her caretakers feared she would face the same fate. Buttercup was cared for by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC‘s Texas Vet Partner, who did all that they could for her.

She needed blood transfusions and around-the-clock care just to stand a chance.
The emergency bill for her initial care topped $3000, and you can see why.
Those sores on her face must have been excruciating for poor Buttercup. The cone around her neck was to prevent her scratching, but the poor pup doesn’t look like she has the energy to even move!
Buttercup’s poor skin was raw in places over both her stomach and feet from an awful case of mange.
Who could do such terrible things to such a beautiful dog?
Thankfully, Buttercup’s recovery went well, and she has undergone an amazing transformation. She might look a little patchy in this picture, but she is still a beautiful girl!
Here she is with her fur growing back in.
And here she is again looking like the picture of health! Buttercup is a fifteen-pound, four-month-old collie mix who is now looking for her forever home with somebody loving.
Abandoned puppies are too-familiar stories. Organizations like Rescue Dogs Rock have their work cut out trying to care for all the dogs brought into their care. It doesn’t matter if a puppy has a smooshed face or a bad case of mange; puppies are not brought into this world to be abandoned or neglected like Buttercup has been! Whoever is responsible for the awful state she was abandoned in deserves to be severely punished for animal cruelty.

In a recent heavy downpour that caused flash flooding within a few minutes, Sandy Williams from the Tunica Humane Society acted fast to save the lives of some newborn puppies. She told her story to Arkabutla Rescue Rehabilitation & Foster – ARRF and called on them for help.

When the rain started, Sandy left the Humane Society shelter and went to an abandoned house where a dog named Maria had given birth to her newborn puppies. Maria had moved the puppies farther back under the house earlier that morning, probably to protect them from the rain.

When Sandy arrived at the house, she was horrified to find the backyard completely submerged. She wanted to get inside the house to pull the puppies out.
She could hear their faint cries coming from under the house, and after retrieving her flashlight, peered in to look for them. The puppies had thankfully found something to cling on to and were holding on for dear life.
The first puppy she found had wedged himself between two pieces of pipe. A second puppy was floating face down in the water. Both puppies were soaked and freezing, and Sandy rushed them to the car to warm up and dry off.
Pat Hissong from ARRF helped Sandy locate the remaining puppies in the darkness, and they all are now doing fine. Though it was touch and go, one little boy was so exhausted fighting to stay afloat that his face kept dropping down into the water until Pat scooped him up.
Here is one of the pups being fed after their ordeal.
And here they all are, safe and sound!
Whether it is putting up flood defenses around our homes or ensuring we have enough food to last us until the water subsides — or securing our pets — preparing for such flash flooding events is becoming something of a norm for so many of us. We hear all sorts of heroic rescue stories about stranded dogs and people becoming trapped in their own homes because they refuse to leave their pets during such flooding. Organizations like the Humane Society and ARRF have their work cut out every time such a storm approaches!

Meet Faith, the poor little girl who was found in a terrible state of health under a mattress in Detroit.

When Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue picked up this dog, she was so emaciated that they couldn’t even tell if she was a girl or a boy! She must have hidden under the mattress out of fear; who knows what horrors she faced on the streets?
Faith was covered with multiple wounds all over her body and was in a generally filthy condition. Look at her poor face and all her sores!
It must have taken an awful lot of trust for Faith to let the crew from Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue anywhere near her.
But they know what they are doing! Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue is a team of street volunteers that work together to get as many stray, injured, pregnant, and destitute dogs off the streets as possible. They have a wealth of experience in caring for homeless dogs like Faith. 
Once their trust was earned, the crew took Faith to a veterinary hospital for medical care. We wish her a speedy recovery! 
We would love to say that cases like Faith’s are a rarity and that there isn’t such animal cruelty and neglect in the world. We would even like to think that there aren’t as many homeless animals on the streets today as there are, but sadly there are more than 70 million homeless cats and dogs in America alone.

Homeless dogs like Faith don’t only have hunger and lack of shelter to contend with. They face attacks from other street dogs as well as cruelty from people. And to be thrown out of their homes without any knowledge of what they have done to deserve such a thing must be terrifying for these poor animals.

Pit Bulls like Faith get an even worse deal just because of being a Pit Bull! They are considered dangerous dogs, often thought of as being bred only for fighting, when they have just as much love and affection to give as all other dogs!

Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue sees far too many cases like Faith’s. If you want to help, are looking for a dog to adopt, or want to offer a donation, please check out their Facebook page. Image Source: Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue
Happy Tail Makai Makes His Way Up the West Coast and Toward a Home

Makai was on the streets of Los Angeles before being rescued and brought into Baldwin Park Animal Care Center. Though he was overlooked in the shelter, we never gave up hope. Eventually, we arranged a transport to Seattle where he found a loving home. Read the full story!
