What can you say about a 7 month old puppy that was dropped off at Floyd County Animal Control barely able to walk?  What was the owner thinking would happen to  this baby? Ares came to us as an adorable puppy with limited mobility but his disability never affected his spirit and love of life.  Ares is a happy playful boy that loves his foster sisters and every human that he meets.  How can I describe the fear, frustration, anger and complete sadness over the diagnosis of a degenerative neuro-muscular disorder for this happy go lucky guy?  My first reaction is we are going to fight to find out what it is and cure it!  All of my respected vets have told me that knowing what the illness is, will not change the outcome of a poor long term prognosis causing his condition to deteriorate over time.  When we first got Ares, we hoped it was lack of muscle development due to being crated far too long.    Ares has been through massage, acupuncture, hydro-therapy, multiple tests both with a local vet and at the UGA Vet Hospital and countless medications.  At first, Ares showed some signs of improvement but about 6 weeks into it, he started regressing.  We have had 3 appointments at UGA vet hospital and we are trying one final test that is really a shot in the dark.  Every vet we have consulted has given us the same answer:  degenerative neuro-muscular disorder.  Ares' foster mom(who is far braver than I) has promised to continue with the multiple vet appointments and give him as much care, comfort and love as he deserves.  We don't know how long Ares has but we want him to know there is love and that we won't give up on him.   The vets at UGA think a cart and physical therapy could keep him mobile and mentally healthy longer.  Our local vet will rent us a cart for him but we need funds for both. 

We are strapped financially, Ares medical bills have topped $4300.00 to date and we have recieved $1045  in donations.  The break down:  bi-weekly hydro therapy $200 each visit, acupuncture and skeletal balancing(almost $2600) and the testing at our first vet and UGA($1100), elbow pads because he had hygromas on both elbows as well as a harness($250) and used cart is $ 450.

About Releashed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Releashed Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing working dogs from high-kill shelters, rehabilitating those that need training and rehoming them into permanent loving homes.

Releashed Rescue will provide food, shelter, basic necessities, medical treatment including shots and spay or neuter, and work to train any animal going through our program. Our goal is to find the right family to love and care for the animals for their lifetime.

Releashed Rescue has a vision of a world where animals are not killed because they are inconvenient. Instead, we hope to educate the public about pet over-population, spay , neuter, humane treatment of animals and how animals can enrich the lives of people including the elderly, children and those with disabilities.

Our Adoption Process...

The way the adoption works is you complete an application, which we review. If you have had previous pets (like a cat or other dogs) we do a vet check to ensure they are up to date on shots etc. Then the last step is a home visit to basically ensure there are no obvious dangers for the dog in the home. The fee is $300.
