& Here is Another One of Madison... Click Here, Too!!!

A HAPPY ENDING... MIRACLE HAS BEEN ADOPTED & HER NEW NAME IS MADISON!

Miracle was adopted by one of the staff veterinarians that had cared for her through all of her traumatic surgeries & her painstaking rehabilitation. We may never catch her siblings' killers nor know who did this to her... but we know that she is now safe, is very healthy & extremely well loved.

Madison is very close to 1 year of age now and is settled in quite nicely with her adopting family. She can run & jump & outplay most dogs her age but still needs a special boot on her one feet. She will negotiate a few stairs if she is motivated but has ramps at home that she loves. She recently completed the 2 mile Tear Foundation Fundraiser walk and had a lot of fun with all of the other dogs. She loves to chase her Frisbee in the field and is an excellent retriever! Madison also loves to swim but wears a life jacket "just in case". Just like a small child, she can be difficult to get out of the water to go home. Sometimes, she plays too hard & needs to be carried home. She continues to come to work daily and loves all the attention that she can get.

We want to thank everyone for their support over the past year & attribute her continued success with everyone who supported her & her doctors at OVRS & through the Tear Foundation. Thank you to everyone also who has inquired about Miracle (now Madison) & for sending her & her forever family best wishes!

Miracle continues to thrive in her home!

Miracle is grateful to everyone who helped her... so much so that she will gladly share her favorite toy for a good round of play time!

I am just a baby, why would someone do this to me?

At just barely 4 pounds, it takes a coward to do something like this to such a little innocent soul.

Miracle continues to thrive but still will need more surgeries to help her gain the mobility she desperately desire.

At 8 wks old, this is a terrible plight for one little Miracle

Little Miracle... Veterinarians are trying to save this little puppy, the sole survivor of a litter of five, which killed all four of her littermates on Saturday night, November 3, 2007 in an arson at an abandoned home on the west side of Detroit.
Neighbors reported that a group of teens took the puppies into the abandoned home on the 7400 block of Faust and fled after setting a fire, said Detroit Police Officer Jennifer Halfacer. Neighbors also recount hearing them yelling "fire, fire". Some of the puppies were found hog-tied. "It was really sad and disgusting," said Halfacer, who came up with the name Miracle.
After Detroit firefighters pulled 2-month-old Miracle from the burning house, Halfacer took the puppy to a shelter in Oakland County, where she volunteers, which is called Almost Home Animal Rescue. On Sunday, Almost Home Animal Rescue moved the bandaged puppy to Oakland Veterinary Referral Services in Bloomfield Hills. Veterinarians said Miracle has first, second and third degree burns to 60% of her body.
"Right now her chances are somewhat guarded," Dr. Karen Fidell, a veterinarian, said Monday. "It's 50-50 at best. She's been treated for some very serious burns." The fire and animal abuse are under investigation.
Anyone wishing to donate to Miracle's care can call the veterinary services emergency relief number, which is 248-334-6877. Her initial care is being funded by The Emergency Animal Relief (TEAR)Foundation.
They need donations to help pay for Miracle's extensive treatment.
If you would like to help Miracle with a donation, you can send checks to:
