Tille arrived at Pet Haven from a local shelter, shut down and beyond scared. Once she settled into her foster home, it was discovered that she had a torn cruciate ligament in her knee. Now that this gal is enjoying life outside of her kennel, our goal is to get her healthy so she can continue to play and explore her world!
Her surgery will be costly- more than $2500. Yet if we find 250 generous people willing to donate just ten bucks for Tillie, her surgery costs will be covered and she’ll be running free!
Many of the animals Pet Haven rescues arrive neglected, unhealthy, and in need of necessary—and usually expensive—medical attention. These special needs animals are in dire need of our help, and you can help us help them. Read Phoenix’s happy ending below and consider if you can help support more animals like him!
Phoenix came from a hoarding situation before he was hit by a car and found clinging to life on the side of the road. He had a broken leg, lacerations all over his face, mange, ear infections, and was severely malnourished. Worst of all, he was terrified of everyone he met.
After over 9 months of physical and emotional rehab in Pet Haven foster care, Phoenix rose from the ashes of his former life and embraced the second chance he was given. He now lives happy and healthy in a Twin Cities home with another Pet Haven dog who is his best pal.
Too often animals are abused, malnourished, poorly bred, and neglected. Since these animals deserve their chance to find a loving home, we are committed to helping them. Our Phoenix Fund is dedicated to rehabilitating and mending broken bones, curing illnesses, and restoring health to animals in need.
Our commitment to these special needs cases will continue when you support our Phoenix Fund Campaign.
