Help Rescue and Protect Animals
It was a hot day in June when we first met Baxter. The tiny pup's soulful eyes welled with gratitude when we rescued him, along with more than 300 other animals, from a neglectful shelter in Moulton, Alabama. He could barely breathe when we found him, and it was clear that the three-month-old puppy had already experienced more suffering than most dogs will ever know. Sign PetitionSign Petition
Baxter was quickly diagnosed with a very serious, very contagious viral disease called distemper. He was in critical condition, coughing, struggling and weak--nothing like a playful puppy should be. It's difficult to imagine what his fate would have been had we not been there to save him.
After his rescue, Baxter spent nearly a month in intensive care. Day after day, he grew a little bit stronger and a little bit happier: he was coming back to life before our very eyes. Finally, in August, he was one of more than 200 animals who found a home during a massive ASPCA adoption event. Now, not only is Baxter happy and thriving, but he also has a family.
