Animal Rescue

November  2016

20161022_162514Since moving to Texas in 2012, Vincentia Faddis has fostered 56 animals for West Texas Diamonds in the Ruff, Amarillo Panhandle Humane Society, Texas Panhandle Pet Savers and Panhandle Paws of Hope. The most recent rescues were 2 litters of puppies and their mothers. One mama with three, 10-day old puppies came from a hoarding case where 60 animals were surrendered to the Amarillo shelter.  On Sunday, October 23, 2016, the Humane Society euthanasia list was released and included a lab mix and her 7 puppies.  luna For a week, the Faddis household included their 3 family dogs plus 2 mothers and 10 nursing puppies. The following Sunday, the mother with 3 puppies left for a foster home in Colorado.  20161024_113902 The other lab mix puppies are recuperating with Vincentia due breathing issues from the dank conditions of the shelter. Once the remaining pups are weaned and are healthy enough for adoption, good homes will be found for all of them.  Our hats are off to Vincentia for her rescues!
