Those nine rescued dogs.

The good news keeps coming in.

A week-and-a-half ago I published a post called Little by Little. It was the story of “9 Dogs Successfully Rescued From Backyard Breeder Thanks to George and Amal Clooney.”

Thanks, you two!

Well a few days ago there was an email that contained more wonderful news about these nine dogs.


UPDATES on the nine dogs rescued from the backyard breeder (now known as the “Mojave 9 dogs”)

It’s been all kinds of hectic with the intake of nine dogs all at once.   What we were most unprepared for was that every single one of these dogs had never been to a vet in their entire lives.

The medical bills have been piling up so quickly and we’ve been asking for donations for the last several weeks.

Abigail, the girl with the massive mammary tumors that were hanging down and dragging on the ground, she had a bi-lateral mastectomy and her biopsies came back clear!   Yaaay!

Piper had her cherry eye surgery, and a half of a mastectomy for some smaller mammary tumors up and down her right side of her mammary chains.   Her biopsies just came back clear as well (whew!).

McKenna just had a double ear ablation surgery (ouchie!).   There was no avoiding this, her ear drums were destroyed and her middle ears were so painful from years of untreated infections, it’s amazing she is still such a sweet doggie.

Hunter is on the waiting list for a right ear ablation surgery.

Abigail just had her dental this week and needed 19 teeth extracted!  (dogs have 42 teeth)   Her mouth is going to be feeling a whole lot better once the bacteria and inflammation goes away.   Poor girl, she really has had it the worst of all these dogs, yet she is happy and wagging her tail and so eager to get any human interaction.

All nine dogs have needed dentals (several are on the upcoming schedule in the next few weeks, we’ve had to stage everything so we can raise donations).    Six spay surgeries, a cherry eye surgery, a full mastectomy, a half mastectomy, two ear ablation surgeries, blood work, urinalysis, thyroid tests, deep ear cleanings/antibiotics, it’s all turning out to be one of THE most expensive rescues ever in the history of Camp Cocker.

We need your help now more than ever!

Please consider making a donation and no amount is too small.

For the rest of the month of May, we have a matching donation campaign going on, click HERE to DONATE!


Please don’t go until you have watched this video of the surgeries that have been carried out so far.

There are so many good people out there!

    1. Awesome…I love cats and dogs are ok…I’ve come to realize that to be a truly responsible pet owner you need money…I hope the clooneys put money in the pot…I’ll check my money later today…maybe I can help

      1. I’m glad you replied…I’m gonna get you a 5 spot…btw…I found a story where the Clooneys donated $10,000 to this great project…no more puppy mill life for these guys…


      2. I wonder how the pits rescued from the sports star are doing…I always wonder about follow-up…recently a local “shelter” calling themselves “puppy dogs r us” won a case against the SPCA…They took animals from a building not on their warrant…how you don’t put all structures on a warrant? And the beat goes on…


  1. The people that did this /allowed these poor dogs to suffer in this way should be shot!
    They are truly evil. Thankfully, there are many others in this world full of kindness and compassion, as we so often see on this website.


    1. Yes, we really are a strange race! Or in the words of the old local who came for a single beer every night at our local pub, the Church House Inn, in the village of Harberton in Devon: “Now’t so queer as folk!”


  2. It so gratifying there are people who respond to pups like the Mojave 9. Precious babies, hopefully their fur-ever homes are just on the horizon and they can finally live the good life with something who will take proper care of them.
