Update

Casey’s mom, Vicki Barkley has shared with a heavy heart that her beloved Casey Dia has crossed the rainbow bridge this morning from congestive heart failure. She did not get the chance to try out her Muffin’s Halo that was recently shipped to her and will pay it forward to another blind dog in need.
Our deepest condolences to you Vicky.

Backstory

Hello my name is Casey Dia and I will be 15 on October 16, 2015. Due to the blindness I am much more vocal at the dinner table and my mom claps a LOT so I can find her !! I think a Muffin’s Halo would help me navigate a bit better:)

Backstory

Here’s my Chloe pug, she just recently went totally blind. She will be 10 on 10-30-15 , she’s a trooper. She has fused vertebra at her back part of back so she has trouble using back legs and now her trachea has started something so on meds. I’m sure she has several good years but don’t like her hitting her little face on things. We try not to move anything so she learns but when babies come it’s hard for her and she’s been hiding under a table I’m guessing cause she feels safe. Freedom for Chloe is what I’m after.

My lil snoozing angel lol…Bosco got his halo in yesterday!!! We are so looking forward to him living a bump free life!!! God bless his special angel!!! ???

Backstory

My name is Bosco, and I am a 10 year old Cocker Spaniel. I completely lost my sight to glaucoma 2 weeks ago : ( My mommy is so proud of the progress I have made in the past few days! A Muffin’s Halo would be perfect for me because, even though my mommy is doing her best to keep everything the same around the house, I have 3 younger human siblings that are still learning how to live with “the new me” and sometimes will forget to pick up their toys or put things in my way. I LOVE to go play outside with my family and visit my granny’s house. This would help keep me safe when I go places that are unfamiliar to me.

Charla

Backstory

‘Hi, my name is Charla and Frankie is my sweet fur baby. I foster dogs for a local no kill rescue. When Frankie was found walking an abandoned railroad track, rescuers asked me to take him. His right eye was bulging and he was in bad condition. The vet diagnosed him with Glucoma and he had to have his eye removed. Frankie remains blind in his left eye. We believe that due to Frankie being in his Senior years, someone left him in the unpopulated area, blind & sick, to wander off and die alone! Now that he has been under my care, he is healthy and, I hope, happy, to live a restful full life. The only thing that would help, would be for Frankie to have Muffin’s Halo!
Thank you!’

Backstory

I was found on the streets in Tucson, completely blind, but with eyes. I had been out there for so long hat my hair was so matted I couldn’t even walk. I was taken to a shelter where I was terrified, and the AZ Cocker Rescue (a truly wonderful organization) found me and I stayed with them for a bit. I was still super scared because there were so many dogs and I was traumatized from being a stray. My mom saw me on the Internet and knew she had to meet me. So when she met me a couple of weeks later, I went home with her that same day!! After a couple of months, it was clear that my eyes were very painful, and kept getting poked, so they were removed. What a relief! I felt sooooo much better! I am still a wonderful and beautiful pup inside and out, though sometimes I bonk my head! Mom has always tried to work me on words that will help me know when there is danger, but I’m too busy adventuring to listen! I think a halo would help me to not bump my head, especially if I am in a new place!!

Backstory

“This is our little orphan Annie. She went blind 10/19/14. Annie has learned 3 new commands like “easy,” “left” and “right.” Using a Muffin’s Halo would make things so much easier for her! She’d be able to have much more freedom and we wouldn’t have to worry as much when she gets excited and runs through the house!”

“Harry got his Muffin’s Halo while we were in Las Vegas. Check him out after 5 minutes wearing it for first time.”

Chris Foote

Backstory

“My name is Chris , I’m a volunteer/foster with “A Home 4 Spot Animal Rescue” in Las Vegas. I recently discovered your invention on Face Book, and when I explored your website I discovered you help dogs in rescues and shelters thru your Second Chances charity. I currently have a foster, Harry, that is completely blind in one eye and mostly blind in his other eye. He’s constantly running into things. I think he could really benefit from having Muffin’s Halo. He has come so far, and I just want him to have every opportunity to find his furever home.”

Gracie

Backstory

Gracie was rescued from an overflowing shelter 3 years ago. She was very underweight and infested with ticks. My mom nursed her back to health, and discovered what a happy, healthy, funny girl she is. Sadly just a year later, aggressive glaucoma left her blind and in extreme pain. She had her eyes removed, healed well, and has been learning how to navigate the world in the dark ever since. Though she is pretty skilled, she hits her face and head many times a day, and it leaves her feeling unsure and nervous. It is heartbreaking!

Update

“Cant believe  I am even making this announcement I don’t want to realize this is true. As I still lay with her till I gotta take her to get cremated I am begging her to come back. As of 7 am this morning my beautiful everything took her last breath in my arms. I knew this day will come eventually but I always selfishly ask not today not any day. I have so much love in my heart for this little one since day one I rescued her. I hurt so bad inside now, I just need her back please. I keep saying that aloud like someone something is gonna respond back. I don’t know what to do now Gertie was my life my world revolved around her.”

Backstory

“Gertrude aka Gertie rescued from a hoarder at home with 17 other poodles that were matted, flea infested covered in urine and stool. Some had wounds and a poodle did chew off her tail. Many of them did have obvious eye problems, rotten teeth that were later removed and malnourished.”

“Annie got her Muffins Halo today. I can not thank you enough…she is learning now that she does not need to worry about skinning up her nose anymore…thank you Muffins Angels!”

Peggy L.

Backstory

“Annie had lived with many families when we rescued her. She had belonged to several Marine Corp families and the family that had her at the time was getting ready to deploy and were taking her to the shelter. But we got to her before that happened. She was half starved when we got her and had been treated not well.

She spent the first few months cowering whenever she heard loud noises…in my opinion she was yelled at a lot. She was so scared. But with time she came around and started to gain weight. The other dog she lived with before she came to live with us would not let her eat…he was bigger and always took her food.

We have had Annie for almost seven years now. About a year ago, Annie developed diabetes…and two months later was completely blind. She is on insulin twice a day now. She is constantly bumping into things. She loves to be with us but has no confidence anymore. It is so sad to see how she has changed. She was such an active girl until this happened. I know a Muffin’s Halo would make her life much easier for her. She is such a good girl. She is our baby. Thank you for considering helping her.”
