Colossus

Colossus

One of the last dogs to receive help from us in 2023 (which will be continuing in 2024, God willing) was Colossus. This handsome rescued meathead (his mom's word, not mine) was diagnosed with lymphoma shortly before Christmas. His family spent $1,500 on testing just to get a diagnosis, so when he arrived at Dr. Sones' office, the costs of chemotherapy were a bit overwhelming. He suggested the...

Gus

Gus

One of the last dogs to receive Houndhaven Helps funds in 2023, which will continue in 2024, is Gus. Gus has allergy issues, and desperately needed allergy testing and immunotherapy (allergy shots). His mom got the process started, but the costs of continuing were a bit more than her budget would allow. Dr. Schwassman didn't want to see Gus have a setback, so she suggested Houndhaven Helps. Gus'...

London

Hi, folks. London here saying thanks a lot for helping me. I have been very itchy and had super sore ears before I went to see the Veterinary Dermatology Center. I love Dr. Schwassman because she usually gives me a toy when I go to see her AND I love her because she tested me for allergies and prescribed drops to get rid of my many allergies. The only thing I don't like is the ear cleanings, but...

Bo

Bo

Our first case in 2024 (along with several cases carrying over from 2023) is Bo. Bo had torn his cruciate ligament and needed TPLO surgery. Dr. Cheryl Tano selected his case as worthy of our assistance, and we are happy to report that Bo has had his surgery and is doing well. Many thanks to those of you who helped Bo get the care he needed by donating to our Houndhaven Helps project!...

Biggie

Biggie

OK, you cat lovers, here's one for you. Biggie slipped out of the house and when he reemerged, he had a fractured leg. Dr. Peck repaired it, but it wasn't healing properly so it had to be amputated. The expense of two surgeries was too much for his owners, so Dr. Peck selected Biggie to get help from Houndhaven. This was a one time exception to the "dogs only" rule to accommodate Dr. Peck's big...

Teddy Bear

Teddy Bear

Teddy Bear has an immune disorder called pemphigus foliaceus and needs large amounts of drugs to even partially control his disease.  Dr. Schwassman suspects there may be cancer internally that is triggering the disease.  We are helping Teddy get chest radiographs and an abdominal ultrasound to determine what is going on.  If there is a tumor that can be removed, then the skin disease should...

CoCo

CoCo

CoCo was at Orange Co. Animal Services with a carpal (wrist) injury. That is not a position in which you would want to find yourself. But the heavens were smiling on CoCo that day because a lovely couple came in and fell in love with CoCo's sweet nature. Although they are on a fixed income and they knew about the injury, they decided to rescue CoCo anyway and figure out how to get her wrist...

Largo

Largo

Largo is a HH alum who was diagnosed with cancer two years ago.  He has had a myriad of other medical issues as well, and his mama has diligently treated them all.  She finally reached the end of her pet insurance and her ability to pay the full price for treatment.  Largo is still doing well, so we want to help him continue to get the help he needs.  He is a patient of Animal Cancer Care Clinic...

Dixie

Dixie

What could make a former Marine cry? Having a beloved dog who needs more then $13,000 of surgery. Although he didn't actually cry when faced with this news, he did let out a heavy resigned sigh. It was enough to make Dr. Tano conclude that Dixie should become a HH Helps dog. Dixie tore BOTH cruciate ligaments and is an excellent candidate for the life-improving surgery. She also is sweet as...
