Wylie came to Loup Garou from the Kern County shelter. He had been hit by a car and a vet there put a pin in his leg. After to being in his foster home for 2 months he still wasn’t putting his leg down at all. We took him to our vet who said his hip was out of alignment, the leg fracture healed improperly and he had a grade 4 luxating patella. It was his medical opinion that the leg be amputated, which wiould allow Wylie to have a more normal life. We immediately began fundraising for him on Facebook and also a bar graciously offered to have a special happy hour for Wylie. One of the happy hour attendees was a friend of Wylie’s foster mom. She said that her parents had recently lost their cat and they were thinking about now adopting a dog. She told them Wylie’s story and they fell in love with him after seeing photos. He reminded them of a dog they’d had many years ago but a miniature version (Wylie is basically a ball obsessed Labrador retriever in a 12 pound body) The week after Wylie’s surgery just happened to be Christmas so Tricia took Wylie for the holiday to her parents for a “visit” to see how they liked him. Well of course Wylie stayed. The latest report from them is that he’s happily running around chasing his tennis ball, his favorite thing in the whole world.

Loup Garou Animal Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and re-homing of black and dark colored companion animals from shelters where they are disproportionately euthanized for their color. We pull dogs and cats from local shelters, place them into foster homes and actively search out permanent adoptive homes for them.
