If you want to send a "Surprise Box" to the Rescue Ranch dogs
, you can make up your
own and mail it if you live far away/or meet a volunteer to pick it up--just email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements
in the Houston area--(see list of some of the most needed items below OR
Click on the Amazon Wish List Link
--which not only lets you order the items most needed but ship them, too, (probably for free)--directly! Just
be sure to include an email address on your package message or on a note so we can let you know that your box arrived.
Thank you for caring!!
Pasha and Bunny are our Rescue Ranch ambassadors!
TOP MOST NEEDED ITEMS:
(Large/two to a package) needed ASAP for mouth-injured dogs! Many needed. (Target/Wal-Mart has great sales/check online, too!)
TWIN Comforters (our washer can't handle larger ones--and our current
set have been so loved and washed so often, that they look like swiss cheese!)
(see Amazon link below) or anything that requires LONG-TERM Chewing (Exception: No Bully sticks/not healthy.
Doggie dentist says no Pig's ears or hooves/causes too many cracked teeth--and for their vegetarian caretaker, please or nothing
that looks like a body part please, e.g. pig's snouts...)
Bittie Treats and Soft
Treats (We use these for dogs under ten pounds or with injured or deformed mouths--see our Amazon list for ideas)
Beds, all types welcome. The type with a "surround" wall or the type to snuggle into/around the backside
preferred (easier for disabled animals to stay in them) Note: There are some special foam beds on our Amazon Wish List for
special dogs. If you order a DogBed4Less.com--XXL or Jumbo 4 inch foam bed with microsuede & waterproof cover--you will
receive a 15 percent rebate for helping rescue dogs plus the company will give us an extra cover! You must provide your order
number to me via email so I can submit it for processing.
(all types/flavors) We can use it by the case or by the can! We use it to mix medicine and supplements into and for
animals who cannot eat other types of food.
Kibble (all brands but would prefer
no corn in first five ingredients and grain-free if possible). Kibble for tiny or miniature breeds really needed for
mouth-injured/deformed dogs and for mixing dinner for the bigger dogs.
(like the 50 x 60 inch baby or lap blankets that the bitties are small enough so the bitties are strong enough to nose around
to snuggle under! Bigger fleece/all blankets are great for the bigger dogs! They l-o-v-e to snuggle in them!)
for two dogs to play tug or bittie toys that squeak are most needed. No tennis balls please--must be bigger than something
that could get caught in a throat if playing catch.
Note: Basically, anything "DOG"
is happily accepted. Packages of edibles must be unopened and anything "gently used"--like comforters--must
be washed. We love dog clothes and unopened peanut butter is a big help for mixing up homemade treats or for making
"medicine balls" out of--and probably we can find a use for anything you find on sale or want to give.
There are five "Bitties"--or the under 10 lbers! Each has
a reason to wind up here! Some more tragic than others, but they are all friends and helping each other to recover.
Baby, is the white Chihuahua in front; Jade, the mini Min Pin with the green eyes, is to the right (out of
range); the twins, Bellie (the black Chi) and her sister, Sissy, are in the background. Bitty Bits, is bouncing around
out of the frame...or you can admire his tiny 3 lbs below (in the middle), playing chase with Baby and Jade!
This photo is really a miracle--Baby had two broken legs
and a broken pelvis from getting hit by a car and almost lost her leg; Bitty, lost all of his boy parts (yep) and his tail
in a terrible act of abuse. The vet was't even sure how to put him together again. With lots of TLC, time and
attention, now look!! The Glory is God's...
