19 year old Roscoe is loving his donated Muffin’s Halo. Thank you Angels♡♡
Roscoe has been my baby for nearly 18 years. He was rescued from an abusive household after being kicked in the head by the man of the house with steel toed boots. The woman of the house asked me to take Roscoe so he would not be killed. He has very limited sight now, he bumps into furniture and doorways. He is also hard of hearing. He is the best thing that ever happened to me, he is the love of my life
“Bandit developed diabetes in April 2015. He was a very sick baby, and it took a few days in the hospital to get well enough to come home. It took 4 or 5 weeks and a couple insulin adjustments to get the diabetes stabilized.
He loved to play in the pool…standing on the pool float, catching foam golf balls! Unfortunately, while on vacation in August of 2015, we went to bed one night, and in the morning Bandit was walking into furniture and walls. As the day progressed his eyes were milky white. We called the vet, but were told that cataracts were common with diabetes. Feel so sorry for him, as you can tell he is afraid, especially somewhere new.
Bandit is able to go up the stairs…one at a time, but won’t come down. We try to go for walks, but he is nervous and it takes a lot of patience! He never runs anymore ?, but does still like to play with his stuffed toys.”
Angel Lionel’s Muffin’s Halo was paid forward to Reba today!!!
A very thoughtful treat came in the mail today!! A wonderful person named Rachel Morgan, donated a Muffins Halo to our sweet Reba!! This muffins halo used to belong to Rachel’s beloved furkid Lionel who has earned his silver harness and crossed over to the rainbow bridge.
She donated it to Reba in hopes it’ll help Reba navigate her throughout bump free!! Thank you so much Ms Morgan for being so thoughtful and considerate of our special girl, Reba. Our condolences to the loss of your furbaby, Lionel. He is running pain free with so many of our others we have lost but not forgotten along the way.
A big Thank you from Inky for his Muffin’s Halo. He is getting use to it now. It’s very much appreciated!
Inky went blind 4 years ago in one eye and since then his other eye has also. He was getting around fine until his best mate died 7 weeks ago and now he just struggles to walk with her.. He is bumping into things now and actually damaging his eyes more, not to mention how his face must hurt when he bumps into things..
“Thanks so much angels. Peggy’s Sue got her donated halo and we’re both grateful and very much appreciated it… Thanks so much.
“I got Peggy Sue from the dog shelter in 2013. She has always had a problem with getting around any where always walking in to stuff hitting her head. I’m so afraid she is gonna hurt herself she can’t see to good only shadows they say she is blind and can only see shadows.
I was recently informed that she may have meningitis and is being treated for it and that she was born with a not fully developed brain from birth and it may get get worse I feel that it will be to her advantage it will help her be able to play and get around without hurting herself if we could get a Muffin’s Halo to assist her.
Thank u for your time and consideration and thank u so much she is my world and I really would like her to be able to enjoy this as much as she could.”
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!”
“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.”
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.
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.
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.
“We are super excited and so appreciative! Thank you so much Angels! “
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.
“Today it is very very cold up here in the mountains so we have made a play room in the garage. Honey luvs to walk and explore. She is not feeling the best yet but on her way. We found a mass on her left upper chest so we are going back to the vet. She is almost over with the Kennel cough. She luvs her Muffin’s Halo, she can walk all over the place with it. “THANK YOU♡♡ EVERYONE ♡♡♡
“Today is Honey’s big day…She is not coughing as much and has her appetite back! And the best part is she has her pink Muffin’s Halo! Now she can go visit the turkeys and navigate the whole yard. She luvs to visit all the chickens also. Honey is doing wonderful with her Muffin’s Halo! “
Thank you Angels,
“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. ”
