Plato needs surgery


This is not a distemper case, but Plato is a senior dog caught up in a sad divorce situation that has “adopted” by us at Eco Dog Wash in Los Angeles. He’s the resident plaything for the rescue puppies and kittens who’ve passed through our doors. Unfailingly patient and good-natured but suffering from bad hips. We just found our today he had a major ACL tear that needs physical therapy and/or surgery.

We are collecting donations for his treatment.

Please help.

Help make room for Project Hope

Project Hope in Houston is returning to active status following a hiatus this summer. Many dogs had been saved from distemper this spring through the use of Dr. Al SearsNDV serum. The goal of the project has been to treat and document the recovery of distemper dogs. However, before they can return to treating dogs, Project Hope needs to find homes for these two special pups. Brindy is a distemper dog saved with the serum, and Millie was found on the streets and seriously injured. They need homes immediately. So, if you can help, please contact Jane Ward with Project Hope at or Ed Bond at Photos and brief descriptions follow.

Brindy, left, a distemper survivor, with Millie.

Millie needs a home.

Here are photos of Millie, a boxer mix puppy, and Brindy, a we-are-not-sure mix puppy.  They are like twins–and great playmates.  If someone can only take one or the other, I understand, although it will be kind of sad since the two puppies are bonded.

Millie was found wandering with a bottom jaw broken in two places.  The hinges were intact.  After surgery, she is good as new.  She has a little tiny tooth in the wrong place and lost just one bottom canine/has all of the rest of her teeth top and bottom.  Her mouth looks normal and functions fine.

Brindy had Demodex and distemper.  That was back nearly four months ago.  She has the cutest underbite and enamel hyperplasia from being a distemper survivor but you can’t tell unless you pry open her mouth. I was working on the distemper project with Dr. Alson Sears, and Brindy was a recipient of the serum. Using Interceptor daily, per Doc Sears as well, she was cleared of mange and has a beautiful brindle coat with a red sheen.  We have her on a maintenance dose twice a week.  This will need to continue until she is a year or so old. I can go and buy it and send enough along if that helps.

Both puppies are about six-seven months old. They are all people and all dog friendly.  Upbeat, happy, love life puppies.  Ideally, they would stay together in an active home.  Millie especially needs to go out and play, run, etc.  They both loved to keep me company in the kitchen/be taste-testers when I cook and play tug, keep away, etc. very well together especially.  The just gravitated toward each other.

For three or four hours, they are in a playpen (4 foot high) or Millie is crated and Brindy playpen’d but they aren’t able to go a full day without going out/attention.  They are not yet leash-trained.  I have been sick for awhile and now is recovering from a life-threatening case of anemia.

Brindy was spayed at 8 wks (unfortunately the shelter did it before we got involved) and Millie has not been yet.  She just had her first heat.

Thank you!



Little Danny, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix, is a very sweet, calm, and easy going little boy, but very sad as he has been in the LA

pound for a long time, and they are overfull. No one has had the heart to euthanize him–yet–since he is so perfect. He is about 3 years old,

weighs only around 8 pounds, and appears to be quite healthy.

Danny is far cuter than his pictures. He has almost no time left. Please be a hero and save him by adopting him. We are begging for his

little life. If you would like to be his savior, please contact: or .

Peekaboo, neglected puppy needs rescue

Another  ADORABLE puppy in desperate need.  This sweet girl was adopted and then returned with a fractured leg.  Don’t you just love humans!
If anyone can foster, please let me know for rescue and/or to adopt contact:
If you want to be the one to play hide-and-seek with Peekaboo, please call the South L.A. shelter at (213)  485-0117  or  -0119.  And if you would like to pledge funds towards a qualified rescue who can get Peekaboo the surgery she needs, please let us know.   We thank you, Andrea & Mindy (323) 363-4909

Peekaboo  (A1140648, just 5 months old, on medical alert and needs out NOW!!!) was originally brought into the shelter with her two sisters back in early August.  The girls were all adopted  —  Peekaboo into a home that kept her for about 3 weeks, then returned her to the shelter, claiming they had “no home”.  Somehow, these people failed to mention that they were dumping this precious puppy with a fracture of her femoral head, leaving her limping and horribly depressed. Forget that now  —  together we must save Peekaboo’s life, get her the surgery she needs, and prove to her that there are those she can trust, those who will laugh at her antics, and those who will protect and cherish her for the rest of her life. If you want to be the one to play hide-and-seek with Peekaboo, please call the South L.A. shelter at (213)  485-0117  or  -0119.  And if you would like to pledge funds towards a qualified rescue who can get Peekaboo the surgery she needs, please let us know.   We thank you, Andrea & Mindy (323) 363-4909

Petie has arrived

Dear Friends
Firstly, thank your for all your support, love and concern for Petie, it is much appreciated!
Petie arrived from Tiwan yesterday (photos attached) and I have to say I am quite smitten!   What an ADORABLE little guy!  He literally jumped out of the crate and into my arms with a great big greeting.  There are many rescues who have taken dogs from other countries but Petie is my first and therefore will always be special.  It has been a goal of mine to broaden my rescue efforts and when Petie came into my life it was the perfect time.
As you may recall from my original email, Petie lived with an alchoholic who would often beat abuse him.  He took him several times to a deserted location and left him there to die dumped but Petie, being the smart Terrier he is, found his way back each time.  Even though abused, he was still loyal!
Petie will no longer ever be abused and will no longer ever be dumped to die.  He is still in need of a temporary foster home until his foster mom returns for vacation.  Petie has been vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and examined by my vet here.  Aside from a cataract (which may require surgery) he is a healthy, happy very quirky little guy.
For adoption and or foster information, please email or all me directly at the number listed below.
Kind regards,
Mutt Match L.A.

Puppies are pound-bound


Five adorable 8-week old puppies are pound-bound unless rescued.

I don’t know the details of the situation other than this: the contact person says the dog owner is her client and she is trying to find rescue for the puppies otherwise her client is going to dump them at the Lancaster, California, shelter.  She convinced her client to wait a week or two while she tries to find a rescue.  Clearly the client/dog owner needs to get the female spayed but the immediate need is rescue fro the 5 puppies- all are female and they are 8 week old boxer/lab mixes (photos attached.) Beyond cute, very adoptable…..

Please contact Sue at if you can help.
