Sponsor a Rescue
Everyone at Long Way Home is special. Most of our rescues come to us with medical issues requiring ongoing veterinary care and medications. Being able to provide the resources needed to ensure that everyone is comfortable is one of our greatest needs. Each rescue has his/her own Pay Pal account and all funds contributed will go to that rescue specifically.
Calumet is a gorgeous Arabian Gelding that comes to us with severe stifle lameness. He is a wonderful dog-like horse who wants closeness and companionship as his top priorities, and we are so happy to attend to his needs. Anyone interested in volunteering to help with his care or to make a one-time monetary donation or a monthly sponsorship toward the cost of his monthly needs can contact us or click on the donate or sponsor button. Any horse owners who would like to donate hay, shavings, or feed would also be greatly appreciated.
Robert came to LWH with a mouth that literally would make a whole room smell so foul that it was impossible to share space with him. He was in severe need of a dental. His teeth were covered in pus and blood. One very expensive dental later, he has very few teeth, but he feels so much better. Unfortunately, more dental work is needed to keep him healthy and comfortable. We appreciate anyone who is moved to donate to his or Herrmann's dental fund because dental work is very expensive but necessary to allow these dogs' jaws not to atrophy and have to be removed much like our little departed Joy suffered from. We hope to keep Robert around for many more years with quality dental and veterinary care.

Herrmann suffers from an oronasal fistula, an opening in his palate that communicates to his sinus. As can be imagined, this hole causes discomfort from food and other debris entering his sinus cavity. He has had two surgeries to correct it, but they have not been successful, and he still suffers from the symptoms. We anticipate a third surgery in his near future. These surgeries have to be done by a dental specialist at Texas A&M Veterinary School and are very expensive but needed to keep him comfortable. He is a joy to us, and we will continue to find a way to finance these surgeries as long as Herrmann is happy and loves his life.
Thank you for your Donations!
Tony is a senior toy Chihuahua affectionately known as "Bony." He has to be hand-fed all his food in "baby bird" sized portions. When he arrived, he weighed 2.5 pounds and was dangerously thin. Now, he maintains five pounds (double his previous weight!) through a series of twice daily medications and force feedings. He has bilateral luxating patellas and has had one of his legs, which has been deformed at birth repaired, but he is still unable to use it properly, so he is basically three-legged. He is a real piece of work to keep alive, but he loves his life and we hope to have him for many more years.
Thank you for your Support!

Gertrude is a senior Dachshund that is dearly loved at Long Way Home. She had an extremely large benign mass on her back leg that grew to quadruple to size of her normal leg. It limited her mobility and left her unable to run and play. She underwent a debulking procedure and now chases squirrels along with everyone else.
