Happy Adoption Day! This is how your purchases are helping save animals!

This is the best kind of failure, a foster fail! After fostering Baloo, The amazing Koestel Family could not see their lives without him, and decided to make it permanent! We are so happy for their family,

Baloo came to The Arrow Fund in September and was found despondent in the middle of the road in rural Kentucky and covered in feces and infection. The Arrow Fund was asked if they could help. The Arrow Fund took on this horrible case even though their rescue was already at capacity. They knew if they didn’t, he would be euthanized at the county shelter.

The Arrow Fund immediately rushed Baloo to the Emergency Vet in critical condition. Rescuers and doctors did everything they could to stabilize this very injured pup. The staff spent hours cutting away all of the matted and feces filled fur. He had a body scale of 2 (out of 9), covered in infections, and barely able to walk.

Now he is healthy and living his best life. We are so thankful to his fosters (now adopters) for helping him heal both physically and emotionally! Thank you Koestel Family and The Arrow Fund for never giving up on Baloo and for taking him into your home!

Baloo's story, and the stories of each of the animals The Arrow Fund rescue, are why we do what we do. And we could not do this work without the love and support of all of you. Baloo thanks you, and we thank you. Thank you for purchasing our shirts, totes, mugs and pillows to help save animals just like him!
