Priya Priya came to Magnificent Mutts Rescue with
her brother Raj. After a few days of being in foster care, her foster
mom Mary noticed she would get extremely tired after playing for only a
short amount of time. Thankfully for Priya, her foster mom is also
studying to become a vet tech. She knew that this wasn't normal puppy
behavior and took her to the vet where her heart condition was discovered.
Priya needed to have heart surgery in order to live a healthy long life.
Magnificent Mutts decided she deserved that chance. So Priya, Mary,
and Linda went to Indiana to have this life saving surgery performed.
After her surgery, Priya is a happy go lucky little girl who has all her
puppy energy! Priya is definitely on her way to a full recovery.
We are still short of our goal to cover all surgery and the extra expenses
that go with it. Please donate to Priya and help us recover the cost
we encured to give her the life she deserves! She is truly a sweet
Clover Clover is a feisty 1 year old female
Yorkshire Terrier. She found herself in a cage at a kill shelter.
Alone and scared, she also favored her hind leg. When examined more
closely, it was discovered Clover could not put any weight on her hind leg.
The shelter quickly approached a rescue to take her and get her the medical
attention she deserves. It turned out Clover has a luxtating patella,
which is quite common in small dogs, but hers is more severe than most and
requires surgery. The cost of surgery for this little ball of energy
is $1700. We are asking anyone who could help, even a few dollars, to
please donate to Clover's surgery and recovery fund. We want to give
Clover the best quality of life that we can, and she deserves it!
Clover appreciates any donation and will shower you with her sweet kisses!

Thank you so much for your compassion for animals who have been so badly
This beautiful blind german shephard girl was
left out in the cold, on a chain, and with no food. Neighbors grew
more and more concerned as the temperature kept dropping. A
concerned citizen even brought a doghouse to the property to help
this poor soul. She was left alone, cold, and frightened. Her
previous owner didn't even have the decency to give her a name.
Finally, the owner reliquished her to an organization in the area,
and then arranged her transport to us here at Magnificent Mutts.
We are relieved that she is now out of the cold and in the warm and
loving care of Magnificent Mutts. If you would like to
donate to Keller's vetting, food, or other doggie comforts, please

heart this Valentine's Day.
Before rescue . . . . . .
Rescue Day! Hooray!
Poor Darla was found on the side of the road somewhere
in Indiana. A concerned passer by saw Darla and took her to the
nearest Animal Control Facility. The facility had no room and no way
to treat Darla's injuries. A desperate call was sent out to area
rescue's to save Darla's life.
Magnificent Mutts answered and brought Darla to the Chicagoland area to
treat her injuries.
During treatment, it was discovered that Darla's injuries were the result of
gun shot wounds inflicted at point blank range. Since her wounds were
inflicted by a human, you would think she would be fearful and agreesive
towards people, but through it all she remained gentle and trusting of those
dedicated to saving her life.
The story doesn't end there either. After enduring 5 hours of surgery,
an amputated leg, and treatment for heartworm, it was discovered Darla was
pregnant! A few months later after all she had endured, she gave birth
to Hope, Awe, and Wonder. All three puppies are doing great!
Darla is truly an underdog not to be underestimated!
