Meet our one-eyed little pirate – Oakley. This little French Pug lost his eye in a dog fight with another small dog. He needed enucleating surgery for a ruptured cornea. He is doing fine now. His owner was low-income and could not afford the surgery expenses. Passion for Paws provided a vet care assistance subsidy so that Oakley could receive vitally needed surgical care for his eye injury.
Sweetie Pie is a tame cat that was abandoned on the streets. Some cruel person threw motor oil on him. He lost his multi-colored coat. The hair follicles were damaged, so it doesn’t look like his fur will be growing back. He and other rescued senior cats are now residing in the new Passion for Paws Old Cat Sanctuary. They now receive good care and have plenty of free roaming space.

We were contacted late one evening to care for a 50 pound pit bull mix, Buddy, who had been severely injured by two pit bulls. He was rushed to the emergency room where he was treated for multiple lacerations, a swollen head and a missing toenail. Buddy spent a month recovering at the Vet clinic. After much effort, we were able to find Buddy a loving forever home.
