Woofstock

Update

Woofstock is so chilled out now that he has his Muffin’s Halo to help him navigate….hopefully into a forever home soon. Check out his profile and please share so we can help him find a great family♡

Backstory

Woofstock was abandoned in his home when his family moved out; by the time he got rescued he was emaciated.  he was also severely matted and his cataracts were so bad he was blind. Lastly, most of his teeth were rotten and needed to be pulled. Despite all the above, however, he is the most happy-go-lucky little man! He loves EVERYONE he meets; human or animal. He does have some anxiety but this is understandable, and it’s nothing too intense.  Although he is up for adoption with Pet Haven Inc. of Minnesota, he will likely end up being a hospice case due to his age and medical needs. Regardless, we would love for him to be able to navigate through the rest of his life as comfortably as possible, and we would LOVE to be able to offer him the chance to go for walks and get around his foster home without fear of injury. The HALO device would allow him this freedom and independence.

Update

“Becca didn’t mind the Muffin’s Halo at all and maneuvered around really well.  The halo does a good job protecting her head and most importantly, her eyes.  She definitely loved  the vest and the pink looks especially cute with her coloring.  I think we need to adjust the halo up a bit, but that is easy to do.  Good product with very good instructions.  The Velcro makes it very, very easy to put on the dog.”

Becca’s foster mother

Backstory

Becca was found wandering the streets in rural, NC and was picked up by a kind Animal Control Officer. One of her eyes was out of its socket and the other eye has a severe case of dry eye such that she has little to no vision. Becca was not adoptable by shelter standards and no rescue groups came forward to take her, so Hart-2-Heart Rescue stepped up. Our vet remove one eye and we are treating the other with Tacrolimus to see if it can be saved. Becca also had almost all her teeth removed and her soft-palate resected so she could breathe more easily. She will be leaving the vet clinic the end of this week and going into a foster home. Side view picture is after eye removal and front view picture is before eye removal.

Cricket

Update

Cricket got her Muffin’s Halo and a forever home!

Backstory

Cricket came into the Colorado Miniature Schnauzer Rescue after being picked up as a stray. She was blind, likely from birth, so it was truly amazing that she survived the mean streets. When she came into rescue our vet decided that removing her eyes was the best option to prevent any unintentional injury or infection in the future. She came through the surgery with flying colors. Then, best of all, this young cute dog found an amazing forever dad. She even has a Facebook page – Cricket Hope. Here are a few photos of Cricket in the Muffin’s Halo that she received while in rescue from Muffin’s charitable arm that helps rescues acquire these amazing devices. Thanks Muffin and mom!! What you do is such a gift ?

Flower

Backstory

“I found Flower at an event for the Denver Dumb Friends League in Lakewood, Colorado when she was 4 months old.

Flower had cataracts at that time and as she has gotten older they have gotten worse. Flower has always been the best dog and it has been hard watching her vision get worse and worse as she ages. She has gotten to where she is starting to run into things and I hate that for her. She is a very happy go lucky girl, and when she smiles she actually has dimples.

I am praying she can get a halo to protect her from hitting her face.”

Update

It’s me ToTo. Thank you for my Red Muffin’s Halo. I am so happy to have my halo guiding me and I am grateful for your generous hearts♡

Backstory

I was a foster parent for Sutter Buttes Canine.  In 2000 I was asked to foster Toto  until a family adopted her.  I soon fell in love with her and adopted her into my family.  In 2013 Toto was diagnosed with Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca and soon after treatment went completely blind.   Toto is able to use the doggy door to find her way outside, but often bumps into walls and cabinets in an attempt to find her food/water and bed.

Diane

Backstory

This is Sandy.  I rescued her from a high kill shelter here in Vegas. A couple of months after adopting her I noticed overnight that her right eye was bulging. I took her to the vet’s and they thought she had a tumor behind the eye. We went to a specialist and they said she had cataracts and glaucoma in both eyes. They gave her drops that didn’t work and since it was so painful they removed the eye. Last November she lost sight in her remaining eye. She bumps her head all the time and a few times so hard I was afraid of a concussion.  She could really use a muffins halo. I got one from another company but the halo was attached at the collar and tends to drop downwards. Muffins halo suggested that I contact you. The halo she has is pretty much useless since it drops down and she steps on it, when drinking water it goes into the water bowl. She has still bumped her head because of this. Muffins halo FB page suggested I write to you along with other posters. I didn’t know how to attach a picture so I think muffins halo was going to help. So if you got a email about this already please delegate one of them. I would buy one but can’t afford it. Since adopting Sandy I became unable to work due to health issues and can’t afford to buy one.

He thanks you very much♡
Backstory
 Bucky was left at the San Bernardo Animal Shelter high kill shelter  because he was old,  blind and his family didn’t want him any more.  We as a rescue try to rescue as many Seniors as we can.  Carolyn said Bucky was haven’t trouble getting around so that is why I was looking to get him some help.
He is up for adoption and I think this Muffin Halo could really help BuckyBucky always has a smile on his face. He is a beautiful red and white roan Patti. He will be a great companion dog. He is calm, mellow and well mannered. Blind from cataracts and  11 years old he is eligible for our Sanctuary Program where you give him all the love and general care and we pay for his medical expenses for the rest of his life.

Linus

Backstory

This is my best friend, Linus.  He has brought so much joy and happiness to myself and all of my extended family. He comes with me to every family event, every pet and feed store, every drive thru and even every job! He is a huge staple of my life. No one has ever believed me when I tell them he’s not a puppy because he’s so full of love and energy. That was up until 3 months ago when we started seeing changes. Linus started stumbling, swaying, tripping over nothing and falling down. It has been extremely hard to see him go from independent to struggling to get around. His test results all came back fine and he is believed to have a brain tumor. We have found that Meclazine has helped him greatly with his balance but just in the last couple of weeks, Linus has completely lost his eyesight due to the space occupying  lesion. He still sways a bit which makes him run into things even more than if he were just blind. I haven’t been able to work since January but I’m hoping to be able to help my sweet boy get his halo.
