The Duncan Family has fostered 30+ dogs for Walk Me Home Rescue Group in the last two years. Most of the rescue's dogs require some type of medical care! It has been a great pleasure as well as a rewarding experience to be a part of helping so many dogs. Please join us by donating or walking with our team - together we can impact the lives of so many dogs in need.
DONATE: Walk Me Home Rescue Group is funded solely by donations and fundraising. We rely on the generosity of our friends and the community to realize our mission of helping and saving dogs. Dogs entering our rescue are from street abandonment (dumped), owner surrenders and high kill shelter facilities. Your monetary donation will be primarily used for our extensive veterinary and specialists fees. We have had numerous dogs join our rescue in 2019 requiring major medical care; many of the pups with medical bills in excess of $2,500.00.
WALK: Come represent and support Walk Me Home Rescue Group with the DUNCAN FAMILY. You will meet some of our previous foster pups, families and rescue friends while we all walk together with our dog(s) and do it for a great cause! At the Strut Your Mutt event, you will enjoy a leisurely community dog walk with TEAM WALK ME HOME, and then hang out at a festival for all things dog (and dog-lovers). This life-saving annual event, which includes doggie yoga, pet portraits, refreshments, music, contests, post- run pet massages and more, it’s for a great cause; supporting Walk Me Home Rescue Group and helping to end the killing of dogs in local shelters. Join our TEAM on: October 26, 2019 Location: Exposition Park in Los Angeles.
OPAL's STORY: A concerned citizen reached out to a fellow animal advocate about this pregnant dog left to fend for herself. Walk Me Home Rescue Group was told that the family left her behind and they will be out of the country for 3 months. She was roaming the streets day and night for at least a week. She had a flea infestation which we have addressed. In the evenings when fireworks went off she would claw at people’s doors trying to find shelter. Thank goodness one person cared enough to speak out on her behalf. Walk Me Home Rescue Group couldn't ignore her situation considering the safety hazards to her and the puppies. Letting her give birth in the streets was not an option in our humble opinion. Walk Me Home Rescue is keeping her under a 30 day stray hold. The local shelter was notified and flyers were made.
On top of everything else, Opal has worms but due to her pregnancy she cannot be treated until the puppies are older. It is without a doubt if Walk Me Home did not come to Opal's rescue, she and her puppies would not have survived on the streets. The puppies have required daily supplemental feedings and Opal was very thin after birth of her puppies. We have been focusing our efforts on weight gains for the entire family.
