Review for Bichons and Buddies, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I cannot begin to tell you how much Bichons and Buddies means to me! A little over 2 years ago, I adopted my sweet Rosie from them after they rescued her and many other dogs from a hoarding situation in Palm Springs in the dead of summer. The conditions were horrible and there was hardly any water. Rosie had lost a litter of puppies and was nursing a dog she "adopted" when they rescued her. When they first brought her to the vet, she did not look well. She had an infected eye, an infected mass on her ear, a hernia, a broken jaw and was half the weight she should be for her size. But she was a fighter and Bichons and Buddies ensured that she got the best care, which included placing her with a loving and nurturing foster mom who nursed her back to health. By the time I adopted her 6 weeks later, she had had 5 surgeries, including the removal of her eye. Yet she was the strongest, most loving being I had ever met. And from the moment I adopted her, Bichons and Buddies has continued to help in any way possible and have been an invaluable resource for advice and support. They've even covered vet visits and her recent dental surgery needed for her pre-existing broken jaw. But even beyond that, when my Rosie was diagnosed with aggressive mammary cancer in March, they were there every step of the way, sending articles, referrals, helping with expenses that her insurance didn't cover and they even paid for a consult with a homeopathic doctor. They have truly gone above and beyond anything I could have expected when I first adopted Rosie. And now, I am happy to report that my sweet girl is cancer free and thriving!!!!! And all because Bichons and Buddies took a chance on this scrappy, sick love bug 2 years ago. She loves me, food, car rides, food, belly rubs, people, food, her ball, food and visits with her foster mom! Bichons and Buddies is truly a GREAT nonprofit!
