OLH resident, Sandra Solis, found an abandoned dog, a white maltese, at White Rock Park, left in a cage. Sandra immediately loaded the kennel into her car and took the little pup to her home. Once at home, she got on her computer and posted on NextDoor. Within minutes, Megan Prast, OLH PetWatch volunteer, super foster mom, and rescue guru, offered assistance. Walter, Megan's name for the abandoned dog, was in need of medical treatment because of the years of neglect. Once news of Walter spread, OLH residents began to offer generous donations to help with Walter's vet expenses. After an afternoon of searching for a rescue who would accept Walter, Megan finally had success with DFW Furgotten Friends. They immediately picked up Walter and took him over the Buckner Terrace Animal Clinic for treatment of UTI and gastrointestinal issues. It was determined that Walter was 6 years old and had not been neutered, so once he was medically able to withstand surgery he was neutered, placed into foster and quickly adopted! Without the support, help, and generous donations, this would have not been possible.
A 4 month old pit bull follows kids home from school and was taken in by the kids. The father gave the kids 2 days to find a home for the puppy or else he was going to take the dog to Dallas Animal Shelter. Young puppies have weak immune systems and if taken to a shelter, she would most likely have gotten sick. Emma Shaw, OLH resident, shared the story on NextDoor. There was no way this precious little puppy would be taken to DAS with the animal loving neighbors in Old Lake Highlands. Barbara Arredondo, OLH President, volunteered to foster, Chanel, a name given to the pup by Barbara's daughter. Chanel is living a life of peace and happiness and is being sponsored by TheLovePit (TLP) rescue.
