Success Stories

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
Anatole France, French author and Nobel Prize Recipient


Marvin was rescued through our Training Wheels program. His owner went
to jail and the family stopped caring for him. They tried to surrender
him to a local town shelter but they wouldn’t take him, so there he sat!

Day by day, no doghouse, no food or water, no love. When we got there, he
could barely hold his head up. Severely anemic, emaciated and
malnourished and full of parasites. He spent a week at the vet until he was strong enough to go into a foster home.

He immediately adjusted to the other dogs, cats and kids in the home. Just loving every bit of affection he could get!

He was adopted into this forever home and his best friend is a 3 year old little boy! Best friends forever!




Davey was taken from a hoarding home along with 45 other cats in Ronkonkoma. He arrived in horrendous condition with double eye infections, not neutered and full of parasites. After cleaning the crust off of his eyes, he was able to open his eyes for the first time in five years. His eyes were swollen secreting pus for several weeks. It was determined that this sweet boy needed surgery. Davey had severe bilateral entropion eye lids and had to have surgery on both eyes due to corneal scarring. Unfortunately Davey would loose both eyes. Entropion is a medical condition in which the eyelid or eyelids (usually the lower lid) folds inward. It is very uncomfortable, as the eyelashes constantly rub against the cornea and can cause scarring on the cornea. After his surgery was performed he is spending some time at Save-A-Pet recuperating. The surgery was successful and Davey is now available for adoption. With the help of Pet Peeves, Davey is safe, sound and comfortable.



Fluffy the Miniature Poodle from Mastic was hit by a car and his owners gave him up due to his severe injuries. He walked around for weeks without medical care.

Once at Save-A-Pet he was taken to a specialist to have the necessary surgery. During his pre-surgical exam Fluffy was found to have heartworm.

Fluffy endured three surgeries to fix the necessary breaks in his leg. After his first surgery Fluffy spent his recuperation time at Save-A-Pet being nurtured back to health. He was then placed in a foster home. His foster parents decided to adopt Fluffy. This is a quote from her “Fluffy now Teddy is home with us and he is so happy. He loves my other dog Lily and as soon as his cast is off he will be running around everywhere with Lily. For now we limit him, not easy the little guy wants to run LOL.” We are happy to say they decided to formally adopt him!

After his final surgery Fluffy was treated for heartworm and neutered. One dog, many medical issues but he is living happily ever after!




Illy and Second Chance Animal Rescue

Illy is a beautiful and sweet 4 year old Tortie. She was abandoned pregnant in the winter when she was (2) two years old. At the time a mere kitten herself, Illy gave birth to a litter of kittens and was a natural at mothering. After all her kittens were weaned, Illy fell ill to chronic upper respiratory infections. She has been treated for upper respiratory, sinusitis, chronic sinusitis, and upper respiratory again and again…but was still sick all the time.

Unfortunately, this loving and affectionate cat has had a terrible time breathing because of her nose. On good days, she breathes very heavily, almost like she’s snoring…but when she gets a cold she heaves and labors horribly just to get enough oxygen! Her condition became so grave at one time she almost suffocated to death.

SCAR had spent hundreds of dollars on doctor’s visits, tests and medications to help her. She has been to see specialist after specialist with many different treatments being tried to help her. Finally the right treatment was found after many months and over $1,400 being spent for those visits and treatments. The Pet Peeves grant was instrumental in helping us provide that treatment she desperately needed to get better. Pet Peeves, thank you for saving her life.




Guardians of Rescue would like to thank everyone at Pet Peeves Inc. for our Grant. With the help from your organization, the following animals have received medical care and have found new homes! Here are just 3 stories of hundreds.

Leonardo is a big name for such a little tyke but he is truly fitting the meaning of the name which is “Lion Strength”!

Little Leo is only 6 weeks old but found himself in a tough spot. He was taken in by an irresponsible pet owner with young kids who didn’t respect animals. Sadly, one of those kids shut Leonardo in the door, closing it in on his ribs! He was taken to the veterinarian immediately. He is now resting comfortably and healing and is in his foster home!
