Many of the dogs we save come from pounds and suffer from pound shock. They go from a home with a large backyard and to a solitary run in a noisy pound with very little human contact. They often are traumatized by the experience. Sometimes we save abused and injured dogs. The most important thing that anybody can do is provide a home, some affection and some human attention for these dogs. Being a foster home for a rescue dog sometimes involves more than just providing a safe backyard. It involves rehabilitating the dog and showing the dog the kind of love and affection that the animal may have never experienced before. You may have to work with the dog and socialize the dog to other people and other animals in the foster household. It is not easy, but it is one of the most rewarding things you can do. Many times both people and other dogs in the foster household become attached to our foster dogs. Sometimes our own dogs comfort the rescues when they come in and become a part of the rehabilitation process. We often have to turn away dogs simply because we do not have enough places to put them. If you can provide a temporary home you are saving the dog's life and training a wonderful pet for the next owner. It is the most important part of dog rescue.

We require a secure area for the dog with a six foot fence, or if the dog is in an apartment or a townhome, he must be walked regularly. We pay for all veterinary care and supply dog food and a crate if needed. If you can provide a foster home for one of our dogs, e-mail us at adoptahuskyofdallas@ymail.com.

 Why we need your help
This is only one example of what Adopt a Husky of Dallas has to face and contend with on a day-to-day basis. The intentional neglect that people place on these animals and ignorance, lack of knowledge is not an acceptable excuse in this age of information.
When we first heard about Makenna we were told of a pregnant bi-eyed husky that was due at any minute. At first sight, Makenna appeared to be very pregnant, either with a lot of babies or she had become pregnant by a very large male. After saving Makenna and another dog we took her straight to the vet to get her and her unborn pups medical attention. We were shocked to hear that the vet believed she wasn't pregnant and with a quick draw of a needle the vet pulled fluid off of her belly. Makenna was carrying about twenty pounds of water in her tummy. Her condition was caused by heartworms. A large percentage of our dogs arrive with heartworm but Makenna's heart was completely infested. An x-ray showed that the worms had pretty much shutdown one side of her heart. And if that wasn't bad enough, fleas and ticks had taken so much blood from her that she had no color in her nails and mouth. Makenna went to 3 different vets before we found one who would try and start her on a very slow and risky heartworm treatment. She was also put on medicine to help her body flush the fluid from her tummy and iron supplements to help get her iron count to an acceptable level.
Makenna is doing much better than when she first came into foster care. All the water in her tummy was making it difficult for her to do normal everyday activities. It was hard for her to lie down, she originally would sleep in a sitting position with her head resting on the couch or coffee table or whatever she could find. She is definitly not out of the woods yet. It will take time to treat her heartworms and the water weight is coming off very slowly. Her fur is still in awful condition, but she is started to blow coat so maybe that will help. Makenna is the sweetest girl and is so appreciative of her new found life. Hopefully she will remain healthy through her treatment and we can continue to put up positive reports on her.




If Makenna's owners had spent 6 dollars a month for heartworm preventative, this helpless husky and hundreds like her would not have to suffer needlessly.  As of August 1st, 2002, Makenna's vet bill has reached $700 dollars and climbing.

Dogs come to us neglected, injured, sick, pregnant, flea/tick infested.... All dogs are vetted and treated for whatever ails them before placement into foster homes for TLC and socialization evaluation. As you can imagine, saving these dogs is an expensive proposition and sometimes the vet bills can be out of sight. At the same time, we try to keep our adoption fees reasonable so that even people of modest means can afford to adopt our dogs. As much as I hate to pass the plate, the hard truth is that all rescue groups have large vet bills and run on money and that saving the lives of these dogs and finding homes for them does not come cheap.In addition to vet bills, there are many other expenses we face. A crate big enough for a Siberian costs $175. Our ad in the "Pet Adoptions" section of the Dallas Morning News costs $40 every 10 days. Even small donations of $5, $10 or $20 can help us pay the bills. If you are unable to foster a dog or adopt a dog, or help unload crates at our dog adoptions, you can still be with our rescue dogs in spirit by making a donation today.
