Meet The Saving Huey Alumni It is our mission first to save these animals from a life of distress and suffering and then help them regain their health by meeting their medical needs and ultimately find them loving homes that can care for their unique needs. Here is just a few of our Saving Huey Foundation Alumni who we have had the pleasure of helping. The truth is they have changed our lives more than we have changed theirs.
“Phoebe” was only between 10-12 weeks old in horrible condition. She tested positive for Giardia and Anaplasmosis, and negative for Distemper and Parvo. She was covered in fleas and ticks (hence the Anaplasmosis). Phoebe’s skin has “fossilized” (my term, not a proper medical term) as it is just one layer of dead skin and scab. After extensive medical help she is a new girl!
This lil girl was found abandoned in the same bush her sister (who did not survive) was found in, was tiny Millicent. We had her rushed to the vet, where she quickly tested positive for Distemper. She sat out in the cold wetness, all the while being hungry and scared. Now, she faced one of the deadliest viruses that a pup can get. And she survived and is thriving now
Sweet Charlie was attacked by another dog or a possible coyote. His back was torn up badly (read his story below for pictures) and he was in shock when taken to the vet. Our amazing vet team in Mexico, was able to clean out Charlie’s wounds and sew him back together.
When Charlie arrived at the Ranch he was biting Shane and I. Just a few days later, Charlie can’t get enough love.
This poor neglected soul was found trying to survive on the streets of Mexicali with a massive TVT cancerous tumor covering his face. His amazing will to survive and beat all the odds makes him one special pup who found his forever home!
Arlo had been attacked by another dog and received a pretty nasty wound to the neck area. SHF paid for Arlo’s treatment and officially made him a SHF and got him on a path to recovery and a forever home!
“They cut off my ears. They set me on fire. They starved me. They kept me on a chain. They broke my legs. They broke my pelvis. But they never could figure out how to break my spirit.”
Our sweet little Azul was blind and has limited hearing. Can you even imagine trying to survive the streets of Mexico while being blind and nearly deaf? It’s nothing short of a miracle that this poor boy has made it this far.
Suffering from a severe case of Mange and his time at the shelter was overdue this beautiful soul landed at the Saving Huey Ranch. He was nursed back to health and now in a wonderful home!
Endora came to the ranch with a crushed pelvis. She could barely walk and was trying to survive on the streets. She has healed and is now thriving!
Brave Heart was only 3 months old when he lost his nose in a cruel attack. Thankfully SHF stepped up and after multiple surgeries and lots of love he is thriving. Braveheart is doing fantastic and loves life! He travels everywhere with his daddy and they go on lots of adventures together, including camping.
This poor angel was found in this horrific condition and SHF stepped into get him immediate lifesaving care!
Maudie was found on the streets of Mexico, barely clinging to life. We had her picked up and rushed to the vet where was immediately given an iv, and started on antibiotics.
“Compassion for animals is intimately associated with goodness of character, and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.”
- Arthur Schopenhauer
This adorable 5 week old baby was born with deformed back legs but that was not gonnaa stop herr from living her best life.
He was brutally beaten to the point of having his eye dislodged, and had so much trauma to his brain that he holds his head sideways and spins in circles, but this little guy finds happiness everywhere he goes.
Salem was found eating trash with a very severe injury to her skull and was rushed to the hospital requiring a skin graph and lots of prayers to get her through.
Meadow had an “owner” who saw nothing wrong with the fact that Meadow was literally missing part of her head. Meadow, and her sister Candy, were left outside where they nearly starved to death.
This poor little girl was found in horrific conditions. Not only is she suffering from sarcoptic mange, she also has two broken rear legs, and a possible pelvis break. Perhaps the saddest part of the story is that this little princess is only about 4 months old.
Another “behind the scenes” case that we’ve been looking on. This sweet momma was living in a makeshift cave. She was first noticed crawling into her shelter, and was noticeably pregnant. We were alerted of her situation and offered help.
This little pup was caught in a fire that was intentionally set. She was on a chain, so she had no chance of escape until a hero came along and grabbed her
Charlotte was skin and bones, weighing less than half of what she should weigh. A healthy female Weimaraner should be around 60-75 pounds, Charlotte is not even in the 30’s.
This little bundle of love is so sweet, despite her sometimes grumpy look. She gets along great with other dogs, and does well with most cats. We have a particular cat here at the Ranch, that Honey likes to chase, but doesn’t hurt.

Sky made her way here after what must have seemed like a very long day to her. She was seen at the vet and tested positive for Ehrlichia, Anaplasmosis, parasites and sarcoptic mange.
This little cutie was found on the streets of Tijuana. “Boo”, like many before him, is a classic tale heard way too many times. Mangy (yes, I used the word again), emaciated and completely shut down.
Sometimes their time with SHF is not long enough but in the end they know nothing but love and take a piece of our heart with them.
Violet is a sexual assault survivor and her story is not as uncommon as people hope. She is a survivor and SHF fought hard to find her attackers.
