Thanks to YOU K9 Officers to Receive Ballistic Vests and Heat Alarms

Since many police budgets are slim, extra equipment for officers both human or canine can be tough to find. As a result, our partners at Spike's K9 Fund requested help to outfit K9 units with heat alarms. The heat alarm monitors vital components including temperature sensors and vehicle battery voltage. It will sound when the vehicle reaches an unsafe temperature, and doors can open with a key fob, so the K9 officer's partner can release them remotely in an emergency, if needed. K9 Officers like Fritz from Huntington PD in West Virginia are now receiving alarms!

Buster and the Porcupine

Once on SCAR’s transport, the former owner texted the driver and said that Buster might have one quill left in his mouth from the previous week. Once Buster arrived at SCAR, they took him to the vet immediately. With such a swollen mouth, he couldn't eat or drink. He went under anesthesia and the vet removed over 30 porcupine quills from his mouth, tongue and throat. He would have died if not taken into SCAR’s care.

Bandit the Brave

The vet kept Bandit for a few days to monitor him. He came back to the rescue with a patch on his eye. Over the next few weeks, his eye healed and one would never know he had an issue, except for an eye missing. Bandit is so lovable and spoiled as he waits for his forever family.

Addie’s Story

When someone abandoned Addie at Save-A-Bull Rescue in Southern Arizona, she was in crippling pain. Addie suffers from a rare degenerative joint disease which causes extreme pain and makes it impossible to walk. Though Addie was in excruciating pain, she had a positive attitude and would crawl from place to place—without special treatment, she wouldn't be able to live a normal life. Emily, the rescue's director, wouldn't give up on Addie and went to work making her feel better. Luckily, the rescue saves hundreds of dollars monthly thanks to Rescue Bank food donations, and Emily was able to use those savings for therapy and custom fit boots for Addie, giving her legs back. Now Addie has gone from crawling in pain to running full speed with a smile on her face. This miracle would not have been possible without your support.
