McKinley & Wadsworth were strays on the streets of Watts in LA. McKinley (the mama) had many puppies on the street. Neighbors came out of the woodwork when her puppies were born & take them into their homes, leaving McKinley to repeat the cycle.
McKinley & Wadsworth were strays on the streets of Watts in LA. McKinley (the mama) had many puppies on the street. Neighbors came out of the woodwork when her puppies were born & take them into their homes, leaving McKinley to repeat the cycle. One of her pups returned after a few months, with a severely injured leg. McKinley remained by his side, becoming an invaluable support system. The two dogs stayed together in the same spot on the same street for an unknown amount of time, until my mom saw them as part of her work route. She began a relationship with them, and over the course of a month, we were able to get them off of the streets & into foster homes. Deserving Dogs Rescue & Rehabilitation agreed to take them on, assisting with their vetting, training, and eventual adoptions. While McKinley is now spayed, vaccinated, and has a clear bill of health, the same cannot be said for Wadsworth (her son). His injury is currently being treated medically, and will need to be evaluated for surgery. The costs so far for Mama & Wadsworth have totaled around $700, and with a probable amputation on the way, the eventual cost of their rehabilitation may easily surpass $2,000. We are hoping to get some help with this, as we believe both of these dogs were worth rescuing & finding the loving, forever homes they truly deserve. Any funds that go over what we need for these two will go towards helping another stray dog wandering the streets of LA, hoping for a home of their own.
