Baldwin Park Animal Shelter ---- LOS ANGELES
violet's daily needs
Her bladder must be expressed every 4 hours. Here is a video on how easy this can be
She weighs 20+ lbs and she can stand on her own now, walk short distances too!
Her needs are those of a physically disabled dog and will need on-going physical therapy sessions.
Violet is now in a Forever Foster Home and your monthly sponsorship will help her with her ongoing medical bills and special food she needs to be on for her bladder health!
Violet can stand up and take a few steps before her rear legs cross and she falls over, but she has made improvement and her muscles are no longer atrophied like when we first rescued her from the Baldwin Park/Los Angeles county animal shelter in January of 2017.
Violet needs her bladder manually expressed every four hours by her person, that involves standing her up, and you have to bend over to reach down to manually express it from underneath by her abdomen. This is not a task for someone with any back problems.
A special thank you to Leslie and the amazing staff at 2H4P for helping to get the word out that Violet needs a home and donations. (some of their clients have already donated several days of therapy for Violet, isn't that amazing?)
If you would like to become a monthly sponsor for Violet, for as little as .16 cents a day ($5 a month), you can become a sponsor here:

We understand that many people may not want to donate to a dog that has such a poor prognosis, so we set up a special donate link especially for Violet, so that no donations will come away from other dogs we might save. We are currently paying for her therapy and nursing care on a day-by-day basis. Please consider making a one-time donation or a monthly donation for Violet?
Thank you everyone who is rooting for Violet and sending love and donations! She is quite a trooper and is not giving up! If she doesn't give up-- we wont give up!
