About the Campaign
Jenga and Martini
Rescued from a hoarding situation
So dirty, covered in ticks
Poor Jenga had bladder stones, deadly in a boy
We participated in rescuing 13 dogs from a hoarding situation in San Bernardino, California at the beginning of September. Two of them are soft haired, and very dirty and matted, with one peeing blood. Overwhelmed, we asked for help taking them, and Lhasa Happy Homes (a well established rescue) agreed.
Lhasa Happy Homes helped get them into a vet right away on a Saturday afternoon (and Labor Day weekend!). Hundreds of ticks were falling of these poor babies, and the vet shaved and medicated and bathed both of them right away. Then the boy (Jenga) had urgent surgery to remove bladder stones. Bladder stones are always painful and dangerous in dogs, but in males they are especially dangerous and can suddenly block the urethra and lead to kidney damage and death.
Jenga recovering with this foster family:
Lhasa Happy Homes took on a lot of work, and financial liability, with Jenga and Martini. If you support this work, please consider a donation. All donations here will be paid to Lhasa Happy Homes for their costs with these two. Both are now safe, in foster care, and doing very well! Jenga is recovering from his surgery, and Martini is learning to walk on a leash and live indoors!
