Two very special puppies, Peanuts and Scooby, will be attending an adoption event with AARF Houston this Saturday from 9:00 a.m. - noon at the Petsmart located at 140 Fm 1960 E Houston, Texas 77073 near I-45.
Both puppies are survivors of horrific abuse and have made a long journey of recovery so far. Houston Animal News Examiner previously reported on both of them.
Peanuts was originally featured in this article Abused 7 week old puppy cries in pain from broken jaw. Peanuts laid languishing in pain and left for dead when he was found by a teenager. The abuse he suffered left him with a broken jaw and ears cut down to his little head. The good samaritan was able to find help for Peanut through AARF Houston, Adopt A Rescued Friend. He spent a few weeks in the hospital until he was strong enough for his surgery and is now at home with his foster.
Scooby was originally featured in this article 8 week old puppy faces amputation after cruel abuse. Scooby was found at the Melrose Park dumping ground screaming in pain from a severely broken leg. He was rescued by Melissa McMillan, the founding volunteer of Melrose Park Neglected Dogs. Vets think his injuries may have been caused by a human kicking him. Scooby was able to avoid the amputation and successfully had pins put in his leg. He is now walking well and at home with his foster also.
