The HOWS Project

Major virtual hugs to HOWS volunteer Cindy Anderson for transporting and to Old Dominion Animal Hospital for treating Baby Girl and Droopy for a terrible flea allergy. This mom and son were itchy, scratchy, red... with fur loss. ๐Ÿ˜ž Baby Girl also had ear infections and dry eye, the latter causing blindness in one eye.

Hoping they slept a lil better last night and will be on their way to recovery soon.

Team HOWS 03/21/2020... because animals in need still matter a whole lot during a human pandemic! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿˆ

๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช Our team of LaAsia Thomas, Andrea Denton, Darlene Hinton, Karen Grubbs, and Stacey Norris kept our distance while working together to help Moonpie, Sister, two adorable yet unnamed hounds, Bella, and Patches receive much improved shelters. They, along with Lady, Lola, and (a second) Bella, also received much needed supplies like straw bedding, dog food, no-tip water buckets, and longer tethers (for Bella and Patches).

We added Bella and Patches to our spay/neuter list. And we acquired a new client โ€” the neighbor of one of our clients with her two dogs, Daisy and Bo. These pups will soon receive HOWS houses as well as get spayed/neutered! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ

While at our first stop, we learned our clientโ€™s inside dogs Baby Girl and Droopy have a terrible skin condition. ๐Ÿ˜ž We are working to get them to the vet soon. Their other lil inside dog, TT, also needs to see a vet soon. Poor thing is bloated and uncomfortable. ๐Ÿ˜ž

There was a moment of extreme sadness today, when one of the dogs we visited attacked our clientโ€™s cat, Oreo. ๐Ÿ˜ช
We rushed Oreo to VETSS emergency clinic, but her lil back was essentially broken, and the decision was made to euthanize. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
May you Rest In Peace sweet lil Oreo.

It is so important that we continue to get to these priority animals in need๏ฟผ regardless of our current circumstances.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ’Ÿ

And it is equally important that we continue to be funded to do so.๏ฟผ We are a 100% volunteer organization๏ฟผ๏ฟผ, basically funded by private donors. With all of the crazy of what is going on in this world currently, there is concern as to how we can fund raise. We have put all events on hold.๏ฟผ no tabling. No exposureโ€ฆ
We will continue to practice safety while getting boots on the ground. But we ask for your help to continue our efforts. Please consider a๏ฟผ๏ฟผ donation through our PayPal account at www.howsproject.org๏ฟผ

A huge shout out to Alice Leigh for her most generous donation to The HOWS Project. With these kennel panels, several doggies will be able to be unchained and in a more comfortable environment. The HOWS Project requires that (4-legged) recipients be spayed and neutered. Win-Win, right?

Thank you to our volunteers, Theresa Tocco, Jaleen Tocco & Darlene Hinton, who picked up and transported these supplies!

Chubbs and Stripes โ€” unchained and on their path to a furever (inside) home ๐Ÿ™Œโค๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•

These two adorable 1.5 year old pit/lab mixes have had a crazy week, each day new and better.
Monday Chubbs and Stripes were surrendered to HOWS and transported by HOWS volunteer, Melanie Kelley Moreland, to Old Dominion Animal Hospital (ODAH). This was for certain their first car ride, and though a lil scary they were off the chain and together โค๏ธโค๏ธ
Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday they were neutered, vetted, and beginning to learn and appreciate the beauty of inside life while being boarded and cared for by the ODAH staff. ๐Ÿ™‚
Yesterday they were transferred to the Orange County Animal Shelter (OCAS), starting the next leg of their journey. Though a small shelter, OCAS does a wonderful job with the animals in their care. We know Chubbs and Stripes are bound for the best of opportunities with their perfect companion(s).
Thank you Gina Goldberg Jenkins for helping us help them. ๐Ÿค—

If you would like to meet either (or both) of these two sweet boys, please visit the Orange County Animal Shelter at 11362 Porter Rd, Orange, Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday/Saturday 10am to 6pm. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™

Thank you Hounds O'HappyHollow, ODAH, and OCAS! It takes a village. Glad HOWS belongs to a compassionate and motivated one ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ™Œ
