Tail Wagger's 1990 Bowl was a HUGE success again this year! Thank you SO much for your support... look for information on our 25th anniversary event on November 8, 2014 --- we're planning our biggest event  EVER!!

2011 is in full swing and Tail Wagger's 1990 is excited to inform you the work we have been doing, the stides we have made in the community and the exciting programs that are becoming a reality.
 
We are proud to announce that to date, our Pet Food Assistance program has given assistance to 25 families and distributed over 1,695 pounds of food and 200 pounds of cat litter!  We are thankful to Wags to Wiskers in both Ann Arbor and Plymouth along with Pet Food & More for their generous donations to keep our program alive!
 
We are excited to announce that our first two Low-Cost Vaccination Clinics have been booked and within weeks, we will be announcing many more in various cities around the four-county area.  We will be starting out at Wags to Wiskers in Plymouth on Saturday, March 26th and then Sunday, March 27th at Skeins on Main Yarn Co. in Rochester.  Click on the Vaccination Clinic link for specific details.
 
Tail Wagger's 1990 is working to develop the Spay/Neuter program and will be announcing our first "Spay Day" very soon.  With the assistance of Nooters Club, Tail Wagger's 1990 will be partnering with Sheehy Animal Hospital to offer low-cost spaying/neutering.  Dr. Sheehy and her staff are excited to host a variety of days to accomodate families that are in need of having their pets altered.  All the details will be posted as soon as dates and locations are confirmed. 
 
To kick-off Spay Day, Tail Wagger's 1990 will be partnering with Aubree's Pizzeria and Tavern in Northville and inviting the community to join them for their 'Spay'ghetti Dinner Buffet to benefit the Spay/Neuter program. Details are being gathered now and announced as soon as everything is finalized.  This will be an evening that the community can enjoy and feel good about supporting!  Help us prevent pet over-population and encourage pet owners to have their pets altered!
 
As you can see, Tail Wagger's 1990 has been busy and making a difference in the community!  There is so much work to be done and so many animals in need, but be assured that your support and donations will continue to help us with our mission!  We are thankful for the support in the community AND for being able to be of service to you and your pets!

 

On the night of January 11, 2011 Tail Wagger's 1990 received a call to assist the Wayne County Sheriff's Department with two dogs that were left behind after a drug raid and shoot out. Darma, a 5 month old pitt bull mix, is suffering from severe trauma, emaciation, parasites and leg and joint problems from allegedly being held captive in a small space or crate that would not accommodate her growth.  When Darma attempts to walk, she has difficulty with her back legs as they appear to be bent in an abnormal fashion and her front legs pop out of joint by the knee, which is visible to see.  

 

Zena, a year old brindle mastiff/boxer mix was found in the freezing cold and snow, chained to the backyard fence next to her deceased companion. Appearing to be vicious, the officers gave her some food which immediately calmed her distressed state of mind so that she could be carried into the home and checked for injury. When approaching Zena, she tends to cower down, afraid of human touch and was also severely emaciated to the point of questioning her survival through the night.  

                                

The staff of Sheehy Animal Hospital in Livonia has been providing care for both of the dogs. When stronger and in better health, Darma needs a series of x-rays prior to having surgery to fix her knees and potentially her back legs. Zena is on a weight-gain program and also being treated for parasites. Both dogs have been vaccinated and will be spayed prior to being adopted. 

 

 

Tail Wagger’s Founder, Laura Zain said “At first I thought Darma was dead – she didn’t move, her eyes were closed and I couldn’t believe how you could see every bone in her little body. Somebody did a real job on this pup. When I picked her up she was terrified but took a deep breath and laid her head on my shoulder as if to tell me she would survive. The first thing I thought when I saw Zena was that she wouldn’t survive the night. The bones protruding from her body made me sick but her tail just kept on wagging!” 

Both Darma and Zena will be looking for permanent, loving homes as soon as they are strong enough and become more comfortable with people.  They have made tremendous progress in just one week and will continue to thrive with the care they are being given.  Anyone interested in adopting either of these amazing dogs may contact Laura Zain directly at 735-560-4660 or tailwaggers.1990@yahoo.com  Financial contributions toward their recovery can be made thru the website at www.tailwaggers1990.org or mailed to 27859 Oakley St., Livonia, MI  48154
