Welcome to Boxer Butts & Other Mutts, Inc. We are a non-profit rescue group located in Western North Carolina, founded by Heidi Wagner and Shawn Heystek in December of 2011. We have also brought aboard Deb Welborn, Christy Day, Shasta Rice, Mills River Veterinary Hospital, as well as many fosters and Rescue Family members with the same goals and ambitions for animal welfare. On our website you will find our adoptable dogs, foster/adoption information, news and upcoming events and much more. Be sure to check out our Facebook page for more photos and up to date info on all of our wonderful dogs and cats too. Thank you for visiting our website, and we hope you enjoy!
A before and after picture of our sweet Madeline. We promised her the day she arrived at our vets office that we would never leave her side and she fought and she has overcome so much. Now if we could just get the bladder issues under control. They are getting worse and there are times she will urinate 18+ times in less than 2 hours and this is while she is on the medication that was supposed to help ( This will be her 4th different medication) She has become less playful because its like she knows as soon as she starts she is going to have to pee. It is pitiful.
UPDATE: 10/30/13~Dr. Garber called and her lab results are back and not all the levels they were looking at are normal. After consulting with 3 other internists there and because the ultrasound of her stomach was so abnormal they want to do the scope asap and take biopsies of her stomach and while they are in there they will also scope the bladder and take samples. We do not want to miss anything and we have to find some answers soon. We raised $1548.00 with her first fundraiser and $638.80 was spent Monday at her first visit. I have scheduled these procedures for this Friday and the estimate for everything is a additional $1800.00. I have changed her fundraiser and we are again asking for help to help us cover the remaining cost. I honestly feel guilty for asking but we could really use the help to get Madeline the help she needs. And please keep this very special girl in your prayers. It has been a rough couple of days for her. Here is the link to her fundraiser, all help is appreciated and no donation is too small.
Check out the story on Bert and Dharma that WLOS 13 aired on 9/26/2013. These 2 precious pups were thrown from a vehicle and need all the prayers and support from our Rescue Family.
