Backstory

This dog was going to be put to sleep in WV for being blind and deaf. We stepped in with no experience with these issues in order to save her life. She was part of a litter that was dumped in someone’s yard. We have her and the vet said she has Microphthalmia. Not only is she extremely vision impaired, she is also deaf. We are a non profit 501c3 doing the best we can.

“Thank you for helping me help Benny live a descent life. He’s a great dog and deserves a chance, and he’ll have it because of folks like you!”

Lilli

Backstory

“Benny developed diabetes and cataracts several months ago, when his long-time owner was 96 years old. Unfortunately, he lost his sight before his diabetes could be brought under control, when very high pressure developed in his eyes.

His owner died recently and Ms. Lilli, who had been helping with his care, adopted him, along with all of his expenses. Along with insulin, blood sugar testing supplies and syringes, he needs two pricey medications for his eyes. Benny is a happy dog and has adapted well.

Benny is very active and has been adept at adapting to his blindness. However, he still runs into a lot of things, sometimes when he’s trotting along at quite a fast pace. One of his eyes was recently injured when he ran into part of a rose bush.
He goes for long daily walks and loves to get out and meet people and dogs.”

Update

Jo Jo’s Halo has arrived. There is a very bittersweet story as to how she received this Halo. There was a very kind woman named Stephanie Ellis Bilpuch who had ordered a Halo for her beloved dog Mya. Mya had a seizure and never recovered so Jo Jo’s new found mobility is in honor of Mya. Mya’s spirit sits on the wings of this Halo and she will forever travel with Jo Jo. They have become sisters in spirit and Jo Jo will not let Mya’s memory die. Thank you so much Stephanie Ellis Bilpuch, Muffins Halo for the Blind Dogs, Second Chances for Blind Dogs and especially to Mya.

Update

Jo Jo is getting a Muffin’s Halo♡
A pink 2XL is being paid forward by a kind woman Stephanie who lost her baby one day before halo arrived.

Backstory

I had gone to the Muffin’s Halo For Blind Dogs website after it was suggested to me and on there, there was a place to apply to receive a free Halo from an organization called Second Chances for Blind Dogs, who provide Halo’s purely through donations received by caring people. I only applied yesterday and tonight, I received notification that Jo Jo (Flo Jo) will be receiving one from a kind donor! For FREE! This will be such a blessing to her since she is constantly running into things. This will help her manipulate her way through the house with fewer accidents. Can’t wait for it to arrive and to share with everyone how she does with it and the progress she makes! By the way, Jo Jo (Flo Jo) is a Last Hope Animal Rescue dog but will not go up for adoption until her surgery is completed in March and she has had time to heal from it. They will be removing both of her non functioning eyes to keep them free of infections.

Backstory

I am very involved in rescue and got wind of a Maltese mix that was having a difficult time being adopted out. He had been returned multiple times. My sisters we’re looking to add to their family, and I knew that with my animal knowledge and their dedication we could help Norton acclimate.

We know that he was blind from birth. He was left at a bus stop when the driver told his young female owner he could not come on the bus. It was witnessed by the right people luckily. The rescue he ended up with got in touch with her eventually but of course she didn’t want or deserve him back. Norton is well adjusted to his blindness in that he doesn’t have personality changes (as far as we know – he has always been this w

ay – he has been part of the family for a year ) he is just rather clumsy and for some reason has not / cannot mapped the house.

We think a halo would be beneficial to him before any major injuries happen. We are also hopeful that if he does gain confidence it will help us with some fear based aggression towards people that he has. He loves people just sometimes lack confidence to be handled.

Thank you Angels,

Backstory

“I saw Hunny posted on Facebook  March 2014 from Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter where she was found as a stray. She was a precious little matted girl with a green satin bow in her hair. I knew as soon as I saw her I had to have her. The rescue I was fostering for was pulling a couple dogs an my best friend was going to get them an I told her not to come back without the little blind dog. She just hold me we couldn’t save them all but I had to have her and emailed the shelter about her and told them I wanted her. So she brought her back.

We’re both NICU nurses, she’s retired and I’m still working and was on that day or I would have gone with her. She texted me when she got home and said she didn’t know what I had gotten myself into that she had screamed the whole ride home and hasn’t stopped since she got home.

That night when I picked her up after work she whimpered once when I held her and immediately settled and has been my shadow since that night.

The shelter had told me she was almost blind and toothless. I took her to my Vet the next morning for a check up for my peace of mind. Due to resources the shelter can only covers her basic medical. She was barely 3 lbs an was totally blind an had a mouth full of teeth that were in serious need of a dental but he wanted her to gain some weight before we did her dental. This spring she had her dental and my so called toothless baby had 7 teeth pulled. ”

Backstory

“About a month ago, I adopted a 7 year old toy poodle from a rescue society in South Louisiana. Gigi was born blind because her eyes never developed. She was rescued from being euthanized and found her way into our family’s heart.

She continues to bump into everything, though, and I feel a Muffin’s Halo could change her life.”

Lexia

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!

Cody

Backstory

Cody was a rescue. About a year into us owning him he started drastically losing weight. After several rounds of tests he was deemed diabetic. Soon after he ended up with cataracts and was/is not a candidate for surgery due to several other health issues including a heart murmur. He used to do fine getting around with help from his brother Deisel unfortunately Deisel passed in July due to renal failure. Cody has been walking into things increasingly and I fear for his safety but with all the amounting vet bills His and other rescues) I cannot afford a halo for him. A few weeks back he went to avoid something and banged his head causing one of the cataracts to come loose in his eye. Now it floats. I am so afraid of him damaging his eyes more from banging into things. Hopefully Muffins angels can help us.
