Backstory
“Piggy was dumped at a shelter in Kentucky last August after laboring in a puppy mill her entire life. A rescue named Snooty Giggles picked her up and vetted her. She had mammary tumors removed as well as her eyes. She was born with small eyes and has been blind her entire life. I found her on pet finder last October and instantly fell in love, and adopted her.”

Joy J.

Backstory

“Khorben was found roaming the streets, abandoned by his owner because he lost his sight due to cataracts. He came to us, emaciated, shaved haphazardly, and hunching over whenever touched. Despite all of that, he is a loving, playful, energetic boy that is learning that not all humans are bad. In these 6 days, he has gained 3.5 lbs and his coat is looking better. He has begun to wag his tail and try to play. He is learning his surroundings but would do so much better navigating with a halo. We are so happy to have Khorben as a forever fur baby!”

Dear “Second Chances for Blind Dogs”, 
I just wanted to express my immense gratitude for your donation of a Muffin’s Halo to our beloved Chester.  Chester seems to be less confused and quicker with his walking while he is wearing it!  He adjusted almost immediately to wearing it, and reacted as we hoped when would bump into something; he immediately stops and maneuvers around the object he bumped into.  We call it his “bumper”:0)  We are so blessed to have heard about Muffin’s Halo through the rescue group that I foster for.  I believe that the Muffin’s Halo is a deal-changer for Chester and his limitations with his blindness. He no longer is limited to small areas.  He even went for a hike on a trail while wearing it!! He hasn’t hiked in a year out of our fear of him running into a tree or boulder.  Thank you so much for your amazing product and gracious donation.  Both Chester and I will be eternally grateful!!

Backstory

Chester is an 11 year old Goldendoodle that we rescued when he was a puppy 10.75 years ago. Five out of Chester’s 11 years were spent as a blood donor for Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. He retired at 10 years old, right about when some terrible cataracts/glaucoma began. Chester has saved 53 dog lives!! Chester has also been a therapy dog for the Maxfund pet therapy program, visiting seniors in nursing homes and hospices. He has touched so many lives in his time and we would like to give a little comfort now that his vision has gone.

“Madori says thank you angles and muffin’s halo for donating my halo!! I’m still trying to get use to it but I seem to like it so far and no more bumped head… ??”

Ryan S.

Backstory 

“This is Madori, we rescued her 6 years ago from a shelter. She came from a hoarder with her brother. When we saw her in the cage with him there was an adopted sign on the cage and we asked if both dogs were adopted and the lady said they were but the couple only wanted the little boy now and not the girl because she had some type of past eye trama and was blind in that eye and didn’t want to deal with it..

So we were sold and adopted this sweet little girl. Unfortunately she recently lost the sight in her remaining eye due to a long battle with glaucoma. She was always very active but she is very cautious now and I would love her to gain her perky self and confidence back!!”

“Check out Shaylee enjoying her new Muffin’s Halo! Now she can explore without bumping her head or her eye (ouch)! Thanks so much to the generous donors from Second Chance and Silvie for this wonderful invention to help blind dogs live a more fulfilling life. Now she’s already to go visit Grandma’s!”

Kimberly L.

Backstory
“Shaylee has always had A LOT of medical problems. She takes two medicines for her epileptic seizures. When we first saw eye issues, every vet we saw said it was allergies. We didn’t know it was something so serious until her eye became cloudy and swelled larger than the other eye. The vet recommended some drops but it did not get any better. We went to the pet eye doctor and discovered that it was glaucoma. The vision in the eye was gone so we went through an enucleation. She has been on drops for the 2nd eye, but just recently she developed dry eye and had to go on Tacrolimus which is like a doggie Restasis.

When she went to her eye appointment last Tuesday, she still had sight and her eye pressure was high but not in a dangerous level but the very next morning she was bumping into things and could not seem to see. We took her to the local vet but they still said her pressure was 26 which is what it was at the eye doctor. They did say she had scratched her eye. We are still giving drops and giving her the new eye ointment but we are not seeing any improvement.

I think she is totally blind now because she is bumping into everything. She doesn’t seem to orient herself well. Her appetite is still good but she is sleeping more and is not her normally jovial self since the loss of sight in this eye. I have considered ordering the halo but I am out of work (teacher– out for summer but also looking for a new job) things have been really tough with all the vet bills we’ve had this past year and a half (and we are possibly going to have to have another surgery to remove the eye. ) I am hoping a Muffin’s Halo would give her a way to explore her environment .”

“Andy is so happy with his halo! We can’t thank your angels enough! I know that my Andy isn’t hurting himself anymore & am so thankful for that!”
Deana C.

Backstory
“Andy was pulled off a street in Houston. Westbury rescue told me it was after the flood down there, last year. When I got her to our home, I started noticing him running into things. The vet said he had a small cataract in one eye, which could be the cause. Had him at the vet for shots & asked her to check his eyes again. At that point she told me he was blind in one eye & probably only sees shadows. Andy is so loving & seems to take this all in stride. I hate to see him hurt himself so often. He deserves so much more!”

“Thank you angels! The entire Saving Grace family is so happy that Gerry was chosen to receive a halo. Gerry was quite excited to get to go exploring this afternoon. We can’t wait to watch Gerry‘s confidence grow with his halo as he searches for his fur-ever home. Thank you again!”

Gerry & everyone at Saving Grace Animal Rescue of Maryland

Backstory 4th July
“Gerry joined Saving Grace Animal Rescue when he was pulled from a shelter in TX and made his long journey to MD this past spring. He is heartworm positive, has arthritis in his rear legs/hips, has lots of lumps and bumps, and if that wasn’t enough, is blind. We also say he has selective hearing which is an improvement from how he was found originally.

Gerry currently lives with his foster mom, Lesley, and four other dogs. Despite all his medical issues, he is quite a happy (and handsome) boy (though he can get a little snappy when startled). He loves to spend his days sunbathing on the deck, wandering the yard, and lounging by the fan. His favorite past time, however, is using that amazing nose to find food! He has been known to steal his foster mom’s dinner or two.

Gerry’s bloodwork has since come back with good levels and his heart looked good on X-rays which was a relief. There was a slight decline in the lungs which may just be due to age. He currently swims every 2 weeks to help his arthritis and loves it. Soon he will begin heartworm treatment.

As we help Gerry find his forever family, a Muffin’s Halo would give him confidence as he navigates at adoption events, medical appointments, and hopefully soon, his forever home.”

“Stella said thank you all for her halo. She got it today. We will send a video tomorrow after we go for our walk.”

Wendy M.

Backstory

“Stella was abandoned by her previous owner when the owner moved. She was turned into the shelter by the landord. She was full of mats and had terribly crusty eyes. We shaved her and I fostered her with the intention to adopt her. She is 15 years old, has 5 teeth, and a mammary tumor. On top of that she is nearly blind. Her vet said that he couldn’t see through her eyes. The shelter vet said her sight can be lost any time now. She is starting to run into furniture and walls and has fallen off the couch recently. I love her so much and adopting her was one of the best things I’ve ever done. She brings so much joy to my life and it breaks my heart to watch her try to make her way around the house.”
