Alexis has a forever home and could not be happier with her halo guiding her.
Thank you for giving her a second chance♡

Backstory

“We went to the shelter to pull several other dogs. I saw Alexis and asked if we could have her. I was told ‘no’ as her owners had paid for euthanasia because they were tired of putting money into ‘a ******* dog who can’t see a thing’. I then asked if she came up missing, what would happen.

Our shelter contact left the room and we took her. Her vision at the time was partial in one eye, it is now almost (if not totally) gone. She is also going deaf due to a lack of regular cleanings and untreated ear infections. She is a doll though. She loves everyone, doesn’t let her inability to see and hear slow her down at all! She bumps into everything lately. She used to be able to remember where things were and she doesn’t anymore, so she needs some help to guide her!”

Backstory

” I am fostering a dog that is blind due to cataracts. Yosemite (yo-yo) tries to follow one’s voice but often bumps into a wall or other object in his effort to find where the voice is coming from. He spends most of his time sleeping, and wandering in my home trying to familiarize himself.”

Cavaliers In Need

Backstory

“Hello I would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves. We
are a Charity called Cavaliers in Need that rescues Cavalier King
Charles Spaniels (among a few other breeds that we have been unable to
leave behind) based in the Northern Ireland and the UK.

We have recently rescued a cocker spaniel who is blind and extremely
nervous. She was surrendered  to us because her owner is dying of a brain
tumor and is in the care of one of our lovely volunteer foster carers
homes, receiving all the love and care she needs until we can find her a
forever home. (She is the blonde cocker spaniel on right of picture).

There is also a Cavalier called Bailey who is being surrendered to us on
Saturday because his family are being made homeless. We are worried
about how he is going to cope with the separation from his family and
also the home and environment that he is used to.

Someone recommended that we look at the muffin Halo so I have been
looking at your webpage and seen that you provide Halos to help blind
dogs in shelters. So I thought it was worth messaging to see if you
would consider donating two to help us help Pearl and Bailey adapt to
their new foster homes and eventually their forever homes and make the
whole experience as easy as possible on them.”

Sierra

Backstory

“Sierra was an owner surrender at the Catawba County Animal Control. Sierra came in blind, and infested with fleas. Marilyn from Forever Home Canine Rescue was at the shelter and noticed this tiny chocolate colored Pomeranian pacing back and forth in her pen, waiting to be put to sleep. Knowing my husband and I are Pomeranian lovers, Marilyn contacted us to see if we would foster this sweet girl. Without hesitation, we agreed.

Since being in our home Sierra is very timid to move around much outside of her dog bed. She is constantly bumping into things and hitting her sweet little head. Her biggest joy is being outside, because she feels so much more comfortable that she won’t be hitting her head. A Muffin’s Halo would be a godsend for this little girl, giving her the freedom to move around her foster home without fear and regain the life she deserves.”

Update

“Zac received his halo today. He is getting use to it. Here he is with his toy. I chased him around the house without him smashing his face into walls. Thanks again Angels for his halo.”

Kimberly H.

Backstory

Zac has suffered from pancreatitis since I rescued him 7.5 years ago. He developed diabetes in May of 2015 and was blind a month later from cataracts. Not only did he have cataracts he had a lot of inflammation from fat cells in his eyes. The vet didn’t know if she would be able to do cataract surgery or have to remove his eyes. The cataract surgery was done but due to all the fatty cells floating in his eyes he was still blind. I did eye drops every 4 hours for 2 months to help reduce the swelling of the eyes and now he is on them 4 times a day for the rest of his life. He does see occasionally for an hour or two in the am but then goes blind for the rest of the day. I was saving to buy him a halo but my other dog developed cataracts & went blind in August. He had surgery the first of sept. and his surgery was a success. He sees great now. But his surgery wiped out the halo fund. With 2 dogs on eye drops it is hard to save for the halo. Zac would benefit from a halo by being able to explore the yard and house without running face first into items

Hi Muffin,

“Thank you so much for your gift, I am so happy now because I can go around the house without the fear of bumping my head to walls and doors.
What you have given to me is a great treasure that I would cherish all my life for a puppy like me with less of everything. Me and my Human family would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to those who donated and extended their help. I pray to God that he will bless you with good health so that you could be with your mommy and your sister, Chloe for the longest time for you have been a good angel to me.”

Your friend,

Bella & Kristy

Backstory

“We recently had a cruelty case of two dogs hit in the head with a sledgehammer by the owner. We now have these dogs at our facility. They are on pain medications and antibiotics. Recovering slowly yet still giving kisses to complete strangers. They are the sweetest dogs.

Bella is blind due to cataracts and I want to accommodate her as much as possible for the rest of her doggie years. However many she may have left.”

Backstory
“My little man who is 7 years old, i rescued when he was 1 year old & only had one eye. Over the last few week Marli has been bumping into things so we went to see our vet who referred him onto an eye specialist. Today i just got the devastating news that its his optic nerve is damaged and he is completely blind. Today also marks 6 months ago that his sister crossed rainbow bridge. I am completely devastated. These halos look great and would help my little man not to injure himself. Thank you”

Thank you!

Backstory

“Jack Jack’s owner passed away so he ended up at the shelter that’s all we know. The vet said that the damage to his eyes is significant and seems worse than that of normal aging. We are hoping a Muffin’s Halo will help him.”

Megatron

Update

“Thank you so much Angels for Megatrons Halo! He is doing so well with it! It has made things so much easier for him!”

Kim

Backstory

“In  September I was told Megatron had diabetes The week we found out his eye sight seemed to be impaired but with in just a few days it was completely gone. Now he is having a hard time getting around and he hits his nose into everything. It makes me so sad watching my one very active dog now seem depressed and not  want to move.

I am on SSD I have been for 13 years I have  essential tremors and Megatron has helped me so much with my disability I just want to be able to help him. Our vet bills have been so high and now he is on insulin twice a day we are up to 6 units.

If there is anyway I can acquire  on of your halos for my furbaby it would be so appreciated.”

Thank you Kim
