The Bow Wow, Issue #7: Momo's Story

Your Donations Mean the World

This is the time of year we hope you will support with a donation the work we do everyday to sustain the excellent level of care for the lost and abandoned dogs and cats of Sonoma Valley. This work is sometimes extremely challenging, it can, at times, be heartbreaking and more often than not, incredibly rewarding.

We are committed to each dog and cat that comes into our care and without sugar coating it, this takes consistent funding. We are lucky to have friends like YOU to help as we receive no government funding or subsidies of any kind. Animal welfare organizations nationwide are facing a crisis of more animals coming into the shelters and less adoptions. And the intakes we are experiencing are often medically and behaviorally compromised.

Here's one story of a life that we saved.

Our mission at Pets Lifeline is to take care of the cats and dogs in Sonoma Valley. When we have the capacity for care to help other animals in need, we do. Here's a story where we truly saved a life.

One of the technicians at TruVet called as there was a dog who was injured and the owners we not able to afford the cost of his care. The technician asked the family for permission to reach out to see if a shelter could take him in. When the phone call came in to Pets Lifeline, we immediately said YES. We covered the cost of TruVet and knew we would be able to provide the after care the dog needed.

That is how Momo came to us. He is a pug who lived in a household with several family dogs. One day for whatever reason two of the dogs turned on Momo and attacked him. He was in horrible shape when he was taken to TruVet. Momo still has some bite marks, the puncture wounds have healed and the stitches and staples have been removed. Amazingly he is a happy-go-lucky guy. He likes other dogs. We are astonished that he doesn't seem to have any psychological effects from the attack.

Momo was recently deemed healthy enough to be placed up for adoption. He now has his microchip, all vaccinations, and has been neutered. He is seeking his forever family.

We are so glad that the technician at TruVet thought to call us and that we had the resources to give Momo everything he needed to recover, including a lot of TLC. I know Momo's humans will be coming soon. We truly were a lifeline for this sweet little pug. Your donation to the Annual Fund Drive helps us to cover the daily costs associated with our capacity for care. We ask that you please give what you can during this time. No donation is too big or too small.

Thank you for saving lives.


Pets Lifeline believes all dogs and cats in Sonoma should be safe and healthy and living in loving homes. Every day we work side-by-side with the community to shelter lost and abandoned pets, get them healthy and find them forever homes. Without Pets Lifeline, these wonderful animals would miss the chance to experience their full potential and share their joy with others. #WeLoveSonomaPets
