Gracie was rescued from the South Los Angeles shelter. She had what was called a “skin disease”. This turned out to be no skin disease, and her face said it all. The veterinarian confirmed that acid had been thrown in Gracie’s face. Dog fighting rings abuse dogs in this heinous way believing it will make them mean. As Gracie did not have a mean bone in her body, she was dumped at the shelter after suffering this abuse.
Karma Rescue searched for that perfect home during Gracie’s recovery period. With time, Gracie healed and she now lives with a wonderful adoptive family which is thankful for every moment they have with her.
Mr. Ray Charles, a three month old blue pit bull terrier mix, was rescued from the Carson shelter. Karma Rescue immediately took him to the Veterinarian to examine his obvious eye ailments. Ray was diagnosed with a condition called microphthalmia – a birth defect resulting in blindness. Even worse, Ray had glaucoma in one eye and it was unresponsive to treatment. This created pressure within the eye and caused severe migraines. It was recommended that Ray have the eye surgically removed.
Regardless of these medical issues, Ray will find his way into a loving, permanent home. What he lacks in eyesight he more than makes up for with a great nose, a great pair of ears and his incredible heart.
