This is My Love. I didn't know at first, but he would stay with me. He came to us first. He had a big blue eye. An apparent old injury. We were looking at a possible tumor and so we started out with a horse who needed eye surgery. I am thankful for all the help we had during this time. He also developed an ulcer in the other eye, but after fighting hard, we saved it without major scaring. This boy is a lovebug. We made him a place for blind horses, but he is smart. He has a companion, another rescue and he does just fine. Even lets himself out sometimes. He can hear the electric fence in the other pastures so he has had no real barriers as a blind horse. He's a hard keeper like many others that come from the kill pen. But he has done amazing. I don't know how these horses end up in these terrible places and I just can not think about the fate of those who do not make it out! This TWH has captured my heart!
Tex Senior Officer
The JoVonne Foundation rescued Tex from my ex husband who refused to let me take him. He had steadily lost weight from malnutrition and lack of care. He was a gift to my daughter. The final straw came when he said he was going to shoot Tex because he had a bad tooth. With the help of the JoVonne Foundation, we were able to go rescue him and get him treated for his tooth issue. Now he is back with his rightful owner (my daughter ) and couldn't be happier living his senior life in the safety of his pasture. Thank you JoVonne Foundation!" ~Victoria
Stella Paws ambassador
This girl has been through so much in her life. I rescued her in 2017 from a breeding hoarding situation which I paid this girl good money to get her out. She had to have a C-section with her litter because of her small size. It took a year to get her body straightened out from stomach infections, mastitis, and skin infections. The girl was still using her to nurse other puppies after selling Stella's puppies. In early 2019, right as my father was passing, Stella began to have seizures and was diagnosed with epilepsy. After further testing and two MRIs it was determined that she had C.O.M.S... Chiari syndrome for dogs. I knew early on with such a rough start that this girl would stay with us and have the best life we could provide. Frenchie's have heath issues. They need to do something about all this breeding! She is now 5 and has recently had x-rays after feeling bad. Stella's x-rays showed that she has hip dysplasia, arthritis, and scoliosis with congenital spinal malformation. We readjust again to make life all we can for this little girl. She is happy and that's what matters.
