Pitbull starved, abused and need your help!

February 20th, 2013

BlogmainAn extremely abused, starved and sick pitbull was found wondering the streets in Tallahassee, Florida. her name is Maisie. She was picked up by animal control. She was so starved and her body temperature was so low that she was not expected to survive the night. She was found as a stray, starved, having spent life on a chain, with sores on her neck and after many forced breedings. Animal control discovered she had an “owner”. When approached, her “owner” told Animal Control to “just kill her” because she “had a bad attitude” and she didn’t want her anymore. Basically, Maisie was just tired of the forced breedings, and tired and weak. So her ”owner” tossed her out like garbage to die alone in the streets. That is until Wonder Twins Animal Rescue Group stepped up to save this girls life.

Blogmain2Maisie is anemic, malnourished, severely underweight, and high heartworm positive. She has a enlarged heart from the worm load, but we can’t treat her until she gains some weight, is no longer anemic, and we raise $1,000 for the heartworm treatment and supporting vet care for her rescue Wonder Twins Animal Rescue Group. She will have to stay overnight in ICU for one night for the first treatment, and two nights for the second and third treatments. She is one of the sweetest most forgiving animals we have met. Now its time for us to help her get that second chance at life she deserves.

Warrior-groupWe have created the Animal Warrior tee dedicated to raising the fund necessary to give Maisie a pain free life. The design mimics the shape of a dog tag with the words Animal Warrior proudly displayed showing the world you fight to save all animals. With every purchase of this animal saving tee we will send a $10.00 donation in your honor. Together we can help Wonder Twins Animal Rescue Group and raise the funds to needed for her procedures.

Hendrick Boards Supports Colorado and Montana Animal Shelters, Rescues with Limited-Edition Tee

June 28th, 2012

Marking the worst fire season in Colorado history, three major blazes are burning out of control, destroying hundreds of homes, prompting mass evacuations in Colorado Springs and threatening the city of Boulder 100 miles away. Our hearts and prayers go out to the wildfire regions of Colorado and Montana, where more than 36,000 people have been evacuated from their homes. Over 300 homes have been destroyed including historic landmarks.

What is often underreported and forgotten are the hundreds of animals, including pets, horses, livestock and other large animals that have become displaced due to the fires. In Colorado and Montana, local rescues and shelters are working around the clock to ensure the safety of all animals. Animal shelters are beyond capacity, and stories of local businesses and residences creating make-shift shelters abound.

Hendrick Boards wants to make a difference for animals by supporting the local rescues and shelters in Colorado. From now and until July 4th, Hendrick Boards is offering a limited-edition tee that sparks a $10 donation to animal shelters and rescues in Colorado. Called “Be the Person”, the animal-saving, rescue loving tee will directly support the efforts to save, care for, house and feed abandoned and displaced animals in the fire-ravaged areas of Colorado.

“Our hearts go out to the animals affected by the fire-ravaged areas of Colorado and Montana,” said David Hendrickson. “We want to make sure that the frontlines of animal welfare and protection in Colorado and Montana are given the resources needed to protect all animals and hope that a simple tee can make a difference.”

To see the tee, please go to: http://www.hendrickboards.com/shop/colorado-fires?tracking=4fec723134c63. All purchases made using this link will trigger donations to Colorado and Montana animal shelters and rescues.
