Meet Peanut! She and her brother Smokey were surrendered to ATDR because both their parents had been deployed to Kuwait. Sadly this precious pair was left with a family member who decided he would no longer be willing to care for them and insisted on them being rehomed immediately. After brief stays with various friends and other family members that didn’t work out, their mom took an emergency leave and flew home to the States to arrange to place them.  Mom reached out to ATDR and of course we couldn’t say no to this extremely bonded pair who have been together since tiny pups and obviously the only security they feel right now is being with each other.

Peanut suffers from IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease). She is able to walk, although wobbly. She recently spent time at our vet at Safari where she received stem cells and did a stent in rehab where she gained strength and balance.   Her parents invested in several back braces and a wheel chair, but she seems to get along great without it now.  With loving proper care Peanut has improved and gotten stronger, but sadly her mom had to go back to Kuwait without her.

As our loving supporters know, we spare no expense nor effort when a precious pup needs any kind of help that shows great promise in improving their quality in life. Care like Peanut will be receiving at Safari is extremely expensive and we wouldn’t be able do this without your generosity. If you would like to help us help Peanut, please go to the Donate button on the front page of this site and give whatever you feel you can. No amount would be too small and any amount would be greatly appreciated.
