ANNABETH

Annabeth the dog images

This is Annabeth. She was picked up as a stray in Texas, not putting weight on her back right leg. She had an old break that didn't heal properly, causing her pain. 

Thanks to your recent support of our merch, the 15/10 Foundation was able to cover her much-needed $3,500 surgery, removing the financial barrier to getting her adopted.

And it worked! After a little embarrassment about her cast, Annabeth is not only pain-free and fully using her leg again, but she also found a forever home with one of her surgery techs.

Huge thanks to 15/10 Foundation partner, Austin Humane located in Austin, TX for rescuing her!

 


MANGO

Mango the dog images

This is Mango. He was abandoned at a shelter, tied up outside by himself. He was friendly and energetic, but rescuers realized immediately that he needed surgery.

His back left knee had a torn ligament and a luxating patella. 

Thanks to your recent support of our merch, the 15/10 Foundation was able to cover his entire $11,500 bill. We're pleased to report this bouncy, happy boy has found a forever home to recover in.

SHY BRIAN

Shy Brian the dog images

This is Shy Brian. He arrived at the shelter with severe dental disease and the worst set of teeth we have ever seen. To feel better again he needed like half of his teeth extracted. 

Thanks to your recent support of our merch, the 15/10 Foundation was able to cover his $3,000 dental care.

And we're so happy to announce this mostly toothless chap has since found a forever home.

CUBA LIBRE

Cuba Libre the dog images

This is Cuba Libre. He was brought in as a stray after being hit by a car. His hip was clearly causing him pain, and medication management wasn't cutting it.

Thanks to your recent support of our merch, the 15/10 Foundation was able to completely cover the $1,300 cost of his corrective surgery. The operation was a success, and the only thing upsetting him now is the embarrassment of a naked leg.

MIDNIGHT MUPPET

This is Midnight Muppet. A good Samaritan found him on the side of a busy street. They opened their car door and he jumped right in. Sadly, nobody ever came forward to claim him.

He needed to be neutered, have surgery for cherry eye, and receive basic veterinary care. Thanks to your recent support of our merch, the 15/10 Foundation was able to fully cover his $1,500 bill after a successful surgery.

He's healthy and happy with a foster family, setting him up for a happily ever after with a future adopter. Huge thanks to 15/10 Foundation partner, Real Good Rescue, located in Los Angeles, CA for rescuing him!

 


GRETA

Greta the dog images

This is Greta. She was picked up as a heartworm-positive stray and was severely emaciated and covered with fleas and scratches.

After putting on some weight and getting flea and heartworm treatments, she still had a bad cough from possible chronic bronchitis, so she's now working on managing those symptoms with medication.

Thanks to your recent support of our merch, the 15/10 Foundation is able to cover all of this care, and we're pleased to announce one of the vet techs who's been caring for her has fallen in love and hopes to be her forever foster home.

POPPY

Poppy the dog images

This is Poppy. She was shot, leaving pellets scattered throughout her body and along her spine. Though her fur and skin healed, she was experiencing some discomfort and gait issues and needed CT scans and surgery to remove the pellets.

Thanks to your support of our merch, the 15/10 Foundation was able to cover her $10,000 bill, helping her live the pain-free life she deserves. 

Huge thanks to 15/10 Foundation partner, Wags and Walks, located in Nashville, Tennessee, for rescuing her!

 


RALPHIE

Ralphie the dog images

This is Ralphie. He arrived at the shelter as a stray the day after Christmas. He had a chip, but no one came to claim him.

Abandoned and neglected, the little guy was battling a severe upper respiratory infection that morphed into pneumonia. Antibiotics have helped turn him around, and once he's medically cleared, he'll get the rest of the care he desperately needs, including a dental.

Thanks to your support of our newest tote colors (spun sugar and rose violet), the 15/10 Foundation is able to sponsor Ralphie's treatments, estimated at $3,100, and hopefully help this sweet little sausage find the forever home of his dreams.

MARCY

Marcy the dog images

This is Marcy. She's an affectionate senior Maltese mix who was found on the streets of Brooklyn.

She has chronic ear infections, dental disease, and excessive urination. On top of all that, her internal stitches from her spay surgery dissolved too quickly, so she had to be rushed back to the emergency room for an additional surgery. 

Thanks to your support of our merch, the 15/10 Foundation is able to cover the costs of her medical treatment, estimated to run $6,000. 

Huge thanks to 15/10 Foundation partner, AMA Animal Rescue, located in Brooklyn, New York, for rescuing her!

 


BURGER

Hercules the dog images

This is Burger. His complicated combo order includes severe heartworm disease, low blood counts across the board, and being emaciated, plus a side of really brutal ear infections.

But despite it all, he's a sweet and happy meatball, and thanks to your recent support of our merch, we're partnering with the 15/10 Foundation to cover his medical care for life, estimated at $15,000. 

P.S. Extra thanks to the 15/10 Foundation partner One Tail at a Time for rescuing this happy hound!

“Burger is the BEST! He is the kindest, happiest, gentlest giant who's truly never met a stranger - he loves everyone he meets, humans and dogs. His doctors and techs said he is the sweetest boy ever.“

 


LAI

Hercules the dog images

This sweet senior gal has arthritis and Cushing's disease, which means her body overproduces cortisol, giving her a weakened immune system. She'll be on lifelong medication and receive regular bloodwork to monitor her condition. Throughout her diagnosis and care, Lai has proven to be the sweetest, most loving ball of sunshine.

Her human is a veteran with multiple health issues of his own, so One Tail at a Time is ensuring she gets the care she needs (and visits with dad!) until she and her person can be reunited full-time.

Thanks to your recent support of our merchandise, we're proud to be able to sponsor Lai's medical care for life, estimated at $7,000.

Huge thanks to 15/10 Foundation partner, One Tail at a Time located in Chicago, Illinois for rescuing her!

  


FLETCHER

Hercules the dog images

This teeny puppy was just born in October, but he's already had enough health scares for a lifetime.

During his initial assessment, a veterinarian noticed he had a severe heart murmur, and his subsequent bloodwork indicated anemia and a parasitic infection.

But thanks to your recent support of our merch, we're able to cover Fletcher's deworming treatments, echocardiogram, and future cardiology care, to the tune of $12,000.

Huge thanks to the 15/10 Foundation partners at the Austin Humane Society in Austin, Texas for rescuing him! 

 


POKÉMON PUPS

These 13 chihuahuas, named after Pokémon by their rescuers, were saved from a hoarding situation. They were in need of veterinary care, including deworming treatments, spay/neuter procedures, and preventatives. 

Thanks to the support of our merchandise, we're able to sponsor their intake exams, preventative medications, and spay and neuter procedures for all 13 and their puppies once they're old enough.
