The HOWS Project

Team HOWS 11/16/19 β€” it’s all about teamwork (with each other, our clients, and other animal welfare groups)! πŸ˜‰

Today Darlene Hinton, Karen Grubbs, Amy Myers, Jonathan Cooper, Megan Rice, and Stacey Norris teamed up to help Bella, Lady, Lulu, Moon Pie, Sister, Junior, Lucy, Baby Girl, Droopy, Little Bit, Mimi, Sasha, and Prince. We delivered dog houses to three of these sweet babes, and straw bedding, wind/water break curtains, clean no-tip water buckets, stainless steel food bowls, and treats to most of the others.
πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•

We are partnering with Baby Girl’s and Droopy’s mom to help cure their skin issues. She will administer Benadryl and Herbal Solutions for the next couple weeks. If that doesn’t work, HOWS and their momma will help to get them to one of our partnering vets for examination and treatment. We were referred to this family by ACAP (a wonderful group led by Susan Levi out of Louisa).
We will revisit soon to bring a couple more needed dog houses.

Prince and Sasha live on a property together. Their person asked us for assistance a couple months back. We stopped by today to see how everyone was doing. Unfortunately Prince appears to have two possible abscesses in his mouth. We are partnering with his people to get him to the vet in the coming days. Sasha’s person has been administering HOWS-supplied Herbal Solutions and Immune Balance to her back, legs, and hind quarters for the last month; we were extremely pleased to see her looking like a different (much improved and happier) dog β€” red inflamed skin all healed up! πŸ™Œ

Our last stop was to visit MaryJane and Busta, who have been HOWS dogs for a couple years now. MaryJane has been re-homed. We were sad to learn that Busta had died at the end of his chain, likely attacked by a coyote. πŸ˜₯ His teenage person, who had had Busta for 10 years, was noticeably heartbroken. He had built a memorial in the backyard for Busta and recently rescued and abused pitbull named Belle, who stays inside with their old lil dog, Max πŸ’Ÿ

All in all we did a LOT of good for the critters we encountered today. And we’ve enabled their people to continue that good... 🀝🐾

Thanks to our supporters for making this all possible! ❀️

I really will never understand people that leave their animals outside in awful temperatures. I have a rule: above 80 or below 40, 20 minutes only!

Our HOWS fencing team did it again! Yesterday another beautiful fence was erected for another deserving and beautiful dog! J.J. loved his new 20x40 open running area! He thinks it’s so much better than the kennel he was in. See next post of a great video showing his playful excitement!

We can’t begin to thank our committed volunteers! Even when temperatures dipped below freezing, they still made their way out to this Louisa property! Within an hour or so, everyone started peeling off the layers.. as the day warmed up nicely! It’s amazing how seamless and quick this fence was was constructed.. just under 3 hours for this one..this is a record breaker! Even with a temporary malfunction of our auger.. they didn’t skip a beat!

One of our volunteers even introduced us to some great time-saving tools that we will be looking to include in our toolkit! Thanks Dot!

We had several seasoned and a few new volunteers, including J.J’s person, Rooster, who jumped in to help! Thank you Darlene Hinton
Andrea Horne Denton, Dot Terry, Amy Smith, Julie Rydlund, Jill Rydlund Shatto, Elisabeth Jacobs, Pallavi Javor & our team leads Deanna & Greg Scott. You guys rocked!

We hope to put one more fence up before the ground freezes.. stay tuned for your opportunity to join us! 🐢🐾β™₯️

How much for each fence? I know it depends on the exact area the pup up needs
