Media is a special girl who suffers neurological issues that force her to attack her own back legs which has already caused her to have one leg amputated and lost her tail. Having any contact with her back end causes her to go into a fit of rage and try to attack her own body, and the only way to stop the self-inflicted attack is to pick her up and calm her down. 😢😢
Before coming to Willow’s Wings, Media was left unattended with a male dog and didn’t show that she was pregnant until ten days after coming to the sanctuary. Thankfully, Media delivered three HUGE and healthy babies, two boys and a girl. There was a lot of concern focused on how she would handle being a mother to puppies who would need to nurse and inevitably come in contact with her leg. Thankfully Willow was so patient with her and assisted with hourly feeding everyday. Not all meal times went smoothly, but Media never hurt her babies and cared for them everyday. Her son's Ben and Bob have a permanent home at Willow's Wings Due to health issues.
Media is a loving girl, that has never bit or hurt any other animal or human. Willow gives her the extra attention and the guidance she needs everyday to make sure she is okay. 💓
Parsa’s story is like so many of the animals at Willow’s Wings. Through the kindness and caring of a few animals lovers, he found his way to a safe, warm and loving home at our Sanctuary. Parsa is from the streets of Iran. We don’t know much about him other than at some point in his young life he was hit by a car and left to die. An elderly man felt sorry for him and fed him everyday. even though Parsa could not walk due to a broken back from being hit by the car. American Tourists saw Parsa and asked about him. Miraculously, they decided to delay their tour and take Parsa to a local shelter and that is when Willow’s Wings was contacted to see if there was room for a poor crippled dog. Parsa went to the Vet clinic at Cornell for surgery and to see if he could ever walk again. With a successful surgery and many prayers, Parsa is able to walk again! It doesn’t end there, when Parsa came to the sanctuary, he immediately bonded with Scooter. With Scooter’s love it encourages Parsa to push himself to walk and keep up with Scooter in her wheelchair! Parsa and Scooter have become the best of friends and are boyfriend and girlfriend! Talk about a love story! They play together each night before bed and love each other’s company. 🐶❤️🐶

StitchOur little boy Stitch came to us from Texas. He was given 24 hrs to find a rescue or be euthanized.
He arrived at Willow's Wings as heartworm positive and was so nervous he tried to bite anyone who went to touch him. He was scheduled to be neutered in September 2019, but pre-operative bloodwork revealed he was not healthy enough to undergo anesthesia due to liver issues. Our plan is:
1. Treat the heartworm
2. Re-evaluate his liver
3. Finally undergo extensive surgery to neuter him
CoyoteThis sweet soul was surrendered here to Willow's Wings. A 14 year old miniature pin male, who has severe dry eye causing him eye infections, that may have caused him to be blind and he has a mouth full of terribly rotten teeth. His owner struggled with caring for him properly and came here to surrender him to give him a life he deserves. This little man will need to have eye and dental surgery immediately due to his rapidly declining health condition. Please help by donating!
Willow and LexLex, came to us from Senegal where a cruel person chopped off his back legs. We were contacted from across the world with a plea to save Lex. His story broke our hearts and we immediately agreed to give him sanctuary at Willow’s Wings.
How this poor soul survived what he went through is a testament to strength, perseverance and love. Lex loves to give love to all he comes in contact with, he is a true miracle.
Please consider donating to help Lex's Medical Costs!

BonesBones is the eldest out of our furry bunch here at Willow’s Wings! Bones was a very senior stray who came to us. He went unclamied for a very long time before coming to Willow’s Wings. He was full of rotten teeth, was malnourished and very thin. Bones is so cuddly and sweet, always looking to give love. We love having him with us!
Ben & Bob - BrothersBen and Bob are from Media’s litter and were born at Willow’s Wings . Unfortunately, since Media had been put on medication prior to knowing she was pregnant (before Willow's Wings), it created health issues with Ben and Bob. They have been hand and bottle fed by Willow and have very special diet needs.
They are both very sweet, loving, trouble makers! They love playing with one another and their furry brothers and sisters and playing with toys to get all of their energy out!
