COMMUNITY ALERT: 'Heath's Haven' Provides Hope For Disabled Dogs

Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM - Heath’s Haven Rescue & Sanctuary is a special needs rescue for dogs with neurological issues, spinal injuries, paralysis, and mobility issues. We rescue dogs from euthanasia in shelters, have them evaluated by a neurological specialist, that provides necessary diagnostics (MRI, Spinal Taps, X-Rays, etc.), start them on a rehabilitation schedule of hydrotherapy, acupuncture, and physical therapy, then provide them with wheelchairs. Based on the severity of the dogs impairment, we then adopt them out. Most of the dogs that have neurological issues and spinal injuries are incontinent, and they need extra care to prevent urine scalding on the skin, and special care for their hind legs to prevent sores due to dragging. Even though these dogs have a rough start, they live happy, healthy, productive lives.

We are also on Facebook at www.facebook.com/heathshavenrescue. This is where we communicate with our supporters, give updates on the dogs, and share all the “happenings” with the rescue.

Our adoptable dogs can be found on Petfinder.com by searching Heath’s Haven.
