The Latest Scoop About What's Going On At Enchantment Rescue!






Chi in Sunhat.jpg


Just like humans, some dogs are serious sunbathers. And just like humans they can get serious sunburn that can even cause tumors. Please take extra precaution if your dog's snout is pink. Light-skinned dogs, like light-skinned people, are more prone to sunburn. They need the protection of sunscreens. The types meant for children are a good bet, but make sure they contain no zinc oxide, which is toxic to pets. Don't forget that stretch of skin where the belly and hind legs meet if your pet likes to sunbathe while on his back. On very hot days, even if your dog wants to stay outside, please bring him in and always have fresh, clean water inside and outside.

Axel 222.jpg


Axel's broken leg was casted but he wasn't taken back to the vet clinic for three weeks! By then the cast had soaked through with urine and now his foot is terribly infected and his leg needs a surgical pin inserted at the break. He needs massive doses of antibiotics and continuous visits to the clinic for reevaluation or possibly amputation of the leg. Any help with his medical bills would be greatly appreciated.








A Doghouse Designed Especially for ECR


Hurry and get your raffle tickets, just $1 each and help ECR take 50 Chihuahua and Chi-mixes back East where there is a shortage of small dogs. Remember, New Mexico euthanizes over 200 small dogs a week because there are more dogs than homes that want them. Three dog shelters in Virginia have waiting lists for dogs under 15 lbs. ECR needs to raise $1800 to cover the cost of health and rabies certificates needed to transport each dog across state lines, plus gasoline for the RV transporting them and food for the volunteers who will trade off driving straight through with only pit stops to water and exercise the dogs.


Please be as generous as possible. Buy lots of tickets and who knows, your dog could win his or her own exclusive casa, fit for royalty!
