Saturday July 27th-We (Safely Home Canine Rescue) went to Rosiclair, IL to rescue 8 dogs/puppies. The state of the outside pound was horrific and since then we have 3 out of 5 of our 8 week old rat terrior puppies admitted to the animal hospital-2 of them in 24 hour care. (See our FB page for more information including a letter w/pictures that was put in the local newspaper)

Friends, Would you please keep Karma and Clark Kent in your prayers tonight? These are 2 of the 5 pups rescued on Saturday. They are in the hospital due to lethargy and not eating. The doctor thinks they have parasitic gastroenteritis which means the round worms in their belly were eating them alive. All we can do is supportive care while the worms die and pass.

Monday July 29:
Here is our sweet Clark Kent in the hospital with his sister Karma. Thank you to their foster mommies for knowing something was wrong and alerting us and getting them to the vet right away.

Tuesday July 30th
Our puppies are still very sick. They were offered rotiserrie chicken to entice them to eat but no luck. Karma licked my fingers but spit out food. Little Clark Kent is vomiting this morning. Both were wormed again last night and passed more worms this morning. Finn also came down with symptoms so he is being treated too. The vet will continue with supportive therapy while we try to get these worms out of them. Please pray for our puppies. They are so skinny and can't afford to be missing meals.

Tuesday July 30th
Our puppies are still fighting to stay alive while the doctors try to rid their body of their round worm infestations. Finn had to be admitted today because he wouldn't eat & was lethargic. Buffy & Brody are thriving & being happy crazy puppies. We would so appreciate your prayers that Clark, Karma & Finn turn a corner tonight & will eat tomorrow & that Buffy & Brody stay healthy.

Wed July 31:
Thank you for all the support for our puppies. This morning Karma ate and was wagging her tail. Unfortunately, Clark & Finn took a turn for the worse. They were transferred to VCA for specialized care to save their precious little lives. They are both in very critical condition but the doctors at VCA are AMAZING. Please keep praying for our babies and for the doctors to know how to heal them.

Rest in Peace Clark Kent. You were only with us briefly but we loved you deeply. Many tears are being shed now. We will never forget you. God has you now.
Clark died today, he just could not fight any longer.
Clark Kent will not be lost without memory. Tomorrow in the local paper where these dogs come from, Joe is running a letter with the pictures of the squalid conditions from which Clark and his siblings came. We are thankful the editor is willing to run such a controversial letter and incriminating pictures in the small town.

He and his siblings were together with no food, no clean water, and a kennel floor carpeted with feces. It is our hope that the proper notice is sent to the Illinois Department of Agriculture to go and do something. We will not stop in our fight, now that one has been lost.

We have good news to share today. Clark's baby sister Karma was released from the hospital. All she wants to do is eat (& she doesnt care if your fingers are in her way!). We are so happy she gets to go finish her recovery in the comfort of her foster home. Please keep praying for our boy, Finn. He is not wanting to eat today but his vitals are good so we are hopeful he will pull through.
