beading divas to the rescue

Funds raised help abandoned pups

For May, Beading Divas to the Rescue fundraiser continues for ROAR.

Last winter, nine small puppies were pulled out of a log on the Pine Ridge Reservation. No one knew how they got there or what happened to their mother. But the rescue surely saved their precious little lives.

The nearest water source was a creek, but the water was mostly standing water and probably not too tasty or healthy.

Once the Oglala Pet Project (OPP), one of the many Program Partners of the ROAR Program, had placed the orphaned puppies into their foster network, the pups were fed, given water, wormed, vaccinated and spayed/neutered prior to adoption.

These pups were saved

A story like this is why ROAR created Pet Promise service to help with spay and neuter services. Reducing the dog and cat population is an important step to improving the health and welfare for animals on Native American reservations.

ROAR provides supplies and subsidies to empower care giving and rescue of animals that are abused, neglected, injured, diseased, or abandoned.

ROAR (Rescue Operation for Animals of the Reservation) aids struggling animals and people who care for them on American Indian reservations.

Beading Divas to the Rescue

ROAR stray pups

For May, Beading Divas to the Rescue is excited to be fundraising for ROAR (Rescue Operations for Animals of the Reservation). ROAR won the random drawing from Bead Drive 2015.

Eevee was originally a stray female who needed serious intervention by a professional. Every time someone tried to approach her, she would disappear. She eventually returned with a litter of five puppies.

Since Eevee was so fearful of people, rescuers had to be very careful to respect her space while getting her the help she and her puppies needed. They found the puppies first and then returned for their mother. With determination, Eevee and her puppies were finally reunited.

Mom tries to save pups

Sadly, one of the pups died the following day. It was apparent Eevee and the remaining four pups were infested with ticks. Medical attention for mom and babies was an important next step.

After telling this story, Dr. Holgate lamented, “The strays challenge us; it’s never what you prepare for, especially with the pups.” Fortunately, this dedicated doctor continues to persevere.

A story like this is why ROAR created our Pet Promise service to help with spay and neuter services. Reducing the dog and cat population is an important step to improving the health and welfare for animals on Native American reservations.
