We recently helped a homeless man and his one and only companion "BIG DOG"

Our founder Jasmine was walking down the street in Santa Monica on a Saturday afternoon when she passed by Charles and his dog sitting on the sidewalk. Charles was not collecting money but simply handing out the vets buisness card to donate. Jasmine handed him a few dollars and kept on walking. She made it three blocks before she could not stand it any longer and tuned back around and sat with Charles and told him she would do what ever it took to save BIG. So we started a Facebook fundraiser and BIG became quickly loved. His story was shared over 10,000 times. Its amazing to see how many animal lovers cared and shared this mans story.  We raised the money for BIG so the partners all trucked out to Santa Monica in search for Charles and his dog. The first day searching the beach city was unsuccessful. Jasmine drove out a few days later by herself and found him in the same spot she had seen him a week earlier. Charles was beyond happy when we told him the good news. Julie and Jasmine  met Charles at the vet on Monday morning and we have started the testing proccess for BIG. So far so good!!!!! paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me.

If you walk down Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles, you might encounter Alfredo Longoria, a homeless man who is living with his 9-year old beloved Mastiff mix dog named Lucky. Ironically, the dog is running out of luck. He has been diagnosed with cancer and Longoria is looking for someone who can help save his best friend’s life.

Jasmin Dustin, founder for Cause4Paws, learned about Longoria and his plea, and knew the organization had to help.

“I received an E-mail earlier this week about a homeless man’s dog needing emergency vet care,” said Dustin. “Lucky has been diagnosed with a cancer on his ankle. The vet said most likely to save his life he’ll have to have his leg amputated.”

Four months ago, Longoria walked into a local veterinarian clinic with his dog because he knew there was something wrong with him. There was a growing mass on Lucky’s right-front ankle that was causing him pain and preventing the dog from using the leg.

“Lucky has to be pushed in a blanket-lined cart due to the pain in his one leg,” said Dustin.

The veterinarian recommended amputating Lucky’s leg, but Longoria was not mentally or economically ready then to do this to his companion dog. Longoria thought there would be and alternative route to curing his pet, so he left the clinic in search of some other help.

“Unfortunately it just [might] be too late for Lucky. He is in constant pain and on Tramadol but you can see he is in intense pain,” said Dustin. “It is very likely [the cancer has] spread and we would be looking at helping him be comfortable. I won’t think of that as an option just yet!”

 

Lucky’s leg with the growing mass.

Cause4Paws has reached out to different organizations and veterinarians willing to overlook Longoria and Lucky’s homelessness situation. Right now, the two have no economic resources to afford Lucky’s medical costs and they need all the help they can get. The rescue hopes luck has not run out on them yet, and there is something to be done to save Lucky’s life – even if it means amputating his leg.

The Amanda Foundation agreed to see Lucky for free, and this morning Alfredo and Lucky were picked by Dustin for their 9 a.m. appointment. (Updates on Lucky’s diagnosis will be posted when these are available.)

While medical help is on its way, Lucky still needs someone to help cover his expenses. Cause4Paws has set up a donation link and so far they have only raised $177.

“The cost of the surgery will most likely not be more than 1,200 dollars but it could be more,” said Dustin. “It really depends on how many days [Lucky] needs to stay in the vet for aftercare.”

As you can see from the pictures, Longoria and Lucky are best of friends. Longoria has always cared for his dog and does what he can to offer him the best life possible. Lucky is microchipped and up-to-date on his shots, all he needs now is a guardian angel to save him from cancer.

Meet Lorenzo who's been on the streets for 43 years

If anyone lives in the Van Nuys California area they have probably seen Lorenzo and his 3 dogs walking with his over sized cart on Burbank Blvd. Ive lived in the valley for the past 2 years, and see him almost daily. I often stop and give them food and water. It wasn't until the past few weeks that I had really spent some time with him and got to know his story.


He was married, but his wife died. She had suffered from Sarcoma and eventually lost her battle with cancer. He lived for 2 years alone, many miles from the main town. His car broke down, which didn't allow him to get to town for food, etc and that's when he became homeless. He's been homeless for 43 years. He used to be a ranch worker, which he said he'd love to still be doing. It was his passion to build things on the ranch. In his 43 years of being on the streets he's rescued 2 large dogs and one little Chihuahua. He builds tepees anywhere he can find space for him and his dogs. He expressed so many times how it breaks his heart that his dogs have to live like this. They're always tied to the cart as hes scared they'll run or fight with one another.

They walk every morning and every afternoon to the Mobile station so he can get his coffee. The pavement is dangerously hot for the poor dogs. They need shelter and a place to run. Its not fair for an elderly man and the dogs to be in this hot heat.

He's so kind, and generous and just wants to give me them a better life!!! Lets all come together and help that happen. We're going to raise funds for him to get into a trailer or RV in the next few weeks. Check back for updates!
e biggest hugs when I see him!!

Lets all come together to get them off the streets and into a camper where they can call home!!!
