East Mississippi Animal Rescue

East Mississippi Animal Rescue started in 2001 and is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization dedicated to the rescue and re-homing of abandoned animals in East Mississippi. Each animal is given basic medical care and, if at an appropriate age, is spayed or neutered. The adoption fee charged for puppies or kittens includes a spay or neuter fee so the procedure can be done when the animal is old enough. Adoption fees also help cover routine veterinary costs.Rescue expenses are funded by donations and adoption fees

August 2014 - Healing Hearts (and a Hip)

Beauregard
Beauregard

EMAR has taken in four dogs in the past month that have tested positive for heartworms, and one also needed hip surgery. Your donations are helping us to pay their vet bills! Meet the dogs you are helping below.

Beauregard: A regal bully breed pulled from Meridian's Animal Control Facility, it was obvious he had lived a rough life. We couldn't just leave him there, so EMAR pulled him. He tested positive for heartworms and traveled to his foster home in Jackson, MS. Sadly, Beauregard succumbed to his disease after a short time there, leaving us only with the comfort that he had known love in the last days of his life.

Yogi: A purebred Rottweiler left at Animal Control, he is fairly young and otherwise healthy. After finishing his heartworm medications, Yogi will be ready for a new home!

Sierra: Found along with her two puppies by a caring citizen of Meridian, Sierra was brought to EMAR in hopes of finding them all forever families. Her puppies will be available for adoption in a few weeks, but Sierra must undergo heartworm treatment before she will be ready.

Blake: Yet another gem found at Animal Control, Blake received a lot of attention when his shelter photo was posted on Facebook, but nobody went to adopt him. When his time was up, EMAR pulled him from the shelter and had him groomed, neutered, and tested for heartworms. He tested positive and had to undergo treatment. Our vet also discovered an old injury (likely the result of being hit by a car) and recommended immediate hip surgery. Blake is on "bed rest" for 6-8 weeks but has a potential home lined up for when he is fully healed!

Thank you so much for helping us care for these precious dogs. They bring so much joy to our lives and the least we can do is provide them health and happiness. Every donation helps and the dogs and volunteers at EMAR thank you for your support!

May 2014 Update

Mork and Mindy
Mork and Mindy

In this quarter's project update, we would like to share with you the story of Mork, Mindy, and their mother, Penny.

Penny was pulled from a local kill shelter. She was pregnant at the time. Soon after she was brought into our care here at EMAR, it was time for her babies to make their grand entrance! Penny went into labor late at night. One puppy was delivered, then another, and finally one more, bringing us to a final number of 3. Sadly, the last puppy to be born did not survive the night.

Due to Penny being a Maltese-Yorkie mix, or Morkie, we chose to name her two surviving puppies Mork and Mindy.

This past week, Penny went to her forever home and we are so happy for her! Often times in rescue, the puppies go first and the mother is left behind. She is fitting in well with her new family, including her two new Schnauzer brothers. The puppies, Mork and Mindy, will be going to their forever homes soon, too.

Donations such as the ones you provide help ensure we are able to continue helping animals like Penny, Mork, and Minday.

We thank you for your continued support. Penny and her pups thank you too!

January 2014 Update

 

Today, we at East Mississippi Animal Rescue would like to spotlight an animal that YOU have helped with your donations. Captain came to us from the local animal control facility. One of his front legs had bone exposed from an old injury. Once in our care, Captain received proper veterinary care and had surgery to remove the rest of his leg. It took time, but eventually Captain's forever home was found last year! Here are some words from Captain's new family:

I just wanted to send you some long overdue photos of Captain - he's doing great and as you can see is loving all of the snowfall we've gotten this year. We also bought him some doggie wheels, which he is learning to use for longer walks, and we've discovered that he is an avid hiker, as we frequently bring him up a small mountain nearby. Thanks again for rescuing him and helping us bring him into our lives - he's definitely become a well-loved member of our family!

Though Captain is having fun playing in the winter weather, we know his heart is warm with love! Donors like you ensure that we are able to continue helping more animals like Captain. Thank YOU for helping us provide Captain with the best life possible.
