One of the heartbreaks of being involved in rescue is seeing the sad condition of some dogs who come to us. Please be aware that many of these pictures, while presenting an important reality of our shelter, are very graphic and may be difficult to view. The good news is that, with effort and care, the vast majority of M.A.M.A.S. dogs with these difficult beginnings have beautiful, happy endings. Whether they were sick, starved, wounded or abused, here we want to tell some of their stories of recovery and follow their journeys to forever homes.
