Angels, I received the Muffin’s Halo for Rocky and good news, he got adopted last night! He is a little unsure of it, but I do think it will help him a lot! Thank you so much for your kind generosity.

Backstory
Rocky is a 9 year old Dachshund. I just took Rocky as an owner turn in from MS. The owner had him from a baby and said she couldn’t keep him any longer. We just got him this past weekend and Rocky is learning his way around, but does run into things. He is a very sweet easy going boy. He wanders around quite a lot. Never runs, just walks.

“Thank you so very much for the Muffin’s Halo, Angels. Ringo is already experiencing so much improvement. This boy would never wear any Halloween costume or clothes all of his life. He stood completely still as we put the Halo on and he even sleeps in it! 😇”
Sarah Vandervoort Taylor, Kansas City MO

Update

“A few more pix of gorgeous Ringo Starr the black Lab we posted about earlier today. Ringo loves his Muffin’s Halo, Angels! We should have another vid of him at his new house to post tomorrow. The Halo takes the challenge out of a pup adapting to a new space. It will just be a fresh place to safely do that smell mapping thing they do. It’s their big fun. Muffin’s Halo takes the worry out of loving a blind dog. ”

Sarah Vandervoort Taylor, Kansas City MO

Backstory

“Ringo Starr is a fairly active 8 year old Black Lab whose vision started to change about six months ago. We had him monitored and very quickly he develop cataracts in both eyes. We were referred to a Veterinarian Opthamologist and he diagnosed Ringo with PRA and said he was not a candidate for cataract surgery.

Ringo does well in his environment but when he is outside of the house it is very stressful. He does not realize that he is blind and he will run full force into things. We are moving and are concerned about how he will adapt to his surroundings. Ringo Starr has lived in the same house since he was a pup. Thank you for your kind consideration, Angels.”

“Lola is happily running around again! Thank you so much, Angels!! ”
Alma Garcia-Villarreal

Backstory
“Lola is a 10.5 year old Corgi/Mix she was adopted in 2007 at the local humane society. She has had an adventurous and wonderful life. Lola lost her vision in last 2 months very rapidly due to retinal detachment. She is still a happy dog but her confidence is shaken because she constantly bumps into walls, furniture, or toys that her year old human brother leaves out. We all miss our spunky girl!”

“We’re excited to announce that Winston has been adopted!! His new family fell in love with him instantly and they promised to help the blind dog through every and any obstacle that comes his way. Happy homes are the best homes. 

Thank you,

Kyla E Krissek

Backstory
Winston is an 8 year old Cocker Spaniel Mix. He came into our shelter heavily matted with very painful glaucoma (high pressure in the eye). He received a bilateral enucleation (removal of both of his eyes) to relieve his pain. All of his matting was clipped away as well. Winston is an incredibly sweet dog with a lot of love to give! Also, sorry the pictures are a bit blurry- he is quite the mover. Even though he is quite overweight at this time. His new diet and a Muffin’s Halo will really get his activity level up.
Thank you, Angels.

Hello from Blinky Hope in the UK and thank you for my Muffin’s Halo!

Backstory

Blinky Hope the sheep was born without any eyes on a farm in the UK. She cannot be used as a breeding ewe due to her condition so the farmer was going to send her to the slaughter house for meat. Myself and some other lovely ladies sponsored Blinky Hope by paying the farmer money so he would agree to letting her come and have a loving and supportive forever home at The Smallest Flock sheep sanctuary in Bath, U.K.
She has been at the sanctuary since beginning of September but is having trouble finding her way about and constantly bumping into things which is not good for her stress levels as sheep find journeys and moving stressful at the best of times. I personally run the sanctuary and I’m self funded and have been doing this, for love of sheep and all farm animals since 1997. If I can save just a handful of lives in my lifetime then I have achieved something in my time in this world.

“Here is another really sweet pix of Ellie Lucille. She’s a happy Halo wearing pup now! Thanks again, Angels! ❤️”

Susan Johnson

Back Story
Ellie Lucille is a mellow senior Cocker Spaniel Mix. We fostered her for the local rescue and then adopted her. She had an eye removed when we fostered her. We believe her to be completely blind now. Ellie Lucille had almost no vision a few months ago. She walks into walls or anything that is the way. Walks are the most dangerous for her as she is like a bull dog that just wants to plow forward. Ellie loves her walks! She is fearless outside and we are all on edge worried about her. Thank you for your kind consideration, Angels.

Update

“Oh my, we received our Muffin’s Halo for Sophie and it’s just perfect! As a little background: Sophie became blind practically overnight from SARDS, at the young age of four! She now is six, and has adjusted well. She has issues with her blindness when she’s in an unfamiliar place. This is when we will use the Halo. Sophie doesn’t seem to mind wearing it at all! Here’s a picture of my sweet girl.”

Thank You Angels,
Julie Newman, Martinez GA

Backstory
“Sophie is a very active 6 year old Doxie. She lost her sight to SARDS at the age of 4. It all happened within just a few days. Sophie has adjusted well, but struggles in unfamiliar surroundings. I really feel a Muffin’s Halo is the key to helping her make the best of the situation. Like all pet parents I only want my little girl to happy. Thank you for your kind consideration, Angels. We appreciate it so much.”

“Thanks sooo much for donating a halo for LIBR foster, Kado. We truly appreciate it, xo”

Debra Bosse, Lewiston ME

Backstory
“Kado is an easy going 12 1/2 year old English Bulldog. I am the State of Maine representative for Long Island Bulldog Rescue. I do long term foster care. Kado and his sister Harley came to me about 2 1/2 years ago. Both were severely neglected. Lived in a basement all their lives. Never saw a vet. Both covered with fleas. They had severely infected ears. Harley had tumors so big that she passed away 2 months after I got her. Kado’s eyes were so infected he couldn’t open them. He had to have one eye removed. We’ve tried everything for his other eye but he is completely blind now. He had a neuter and spleen removed. So the poor fella has really been through it. A Muffin’s Halo would be a very special gift for this lovely little guy. ”

“We are so happy that Tootsie will be safer walking around inside and outside her new home. Saved her already from bumping into the chair!”

Thank you♡

The McCormick’s

 Backstory
“Tootsie is a 12 1/2 year old Mini-Schnauzer. My parents live in Florida. Mom passed away this Spring on April 24, 2017 and Tootsie was her baby. My Dad is 81 and we feared Tootsie would be a danger to him because she is blind. We were afraid she would trip him. So, we took her in at our home in RI. She has lived her whole life in Fl and pretty much knew her way around. Poor thing bangs into everything at my house. She is not active now with the blindness. She is timid and scared. Not herself at all. When I saw this halo, I thought … this is the solution!! We have a 12 1/2 year old Corgi and his eyesight is perfect. So seeing her this way is heartbreaking.”

Look how adorable Judd looks in his Red Muffin’s Halo!

Judd got his Muffin’s Halo thanks to Geno!

Backstory

“Judd was an 11th hour rescue from Greenville, South Carolina. Neglected, abused, and malnourished, he flourished into a happy, healthy, and much adored part of our family. Last year, just one month after moving, Judd was diagnosed with diabetes and lost his sight soon thereafter. He has battled several bouts of illness but is finally on the right track to getting regulated and learning to navigate the world. He is even starting to slowly explore our favorite trails again! A halo would give him the security and confidence he needs to make even more strides. Thank you for your innovative idea & kindness! 💛”
