Leo is an American Fox Hound currently receiving care at Veterinary Specialty Center of Delaware after he was diagnosed with pneumonia. X-rays show Leo’s left lung is infected and he is currently in guarded condition. He is on oxygen support and intravenous antibiotics to help him fight his way back to health.

Leo has been in foster care since his owner was diagnosed with dementia and was no longer able to take care of Leo and his hound friend. The two dogs grew up in a barn together most of their lives, and Leo suffered from chronic coughing since he came into our care. He has been prescribed various antibiotics and steroids but never fully responded to treatment. We are hopeful that with your support we can provide him with the care he needs to make a full recovery. We must raise $5,000 for his emergency care and treatment.

Your support of the Healing Touch Fund will help Leo get the medical care he needs and give him a chance to live a full, happy life! Donate today at



Izzy was surrendered to Faithful Friends yesterday. She was quickly examined by our medical team and tested positive for parvovirus, a highly contagious illness that causes vomiting, diarrhea, and weight loss. If left untreated, the illness can quickly become fatal.

Izzy was hospitalized overnight and received around-the-clock care. Izzy is now back at Faithful Friends and will continue to receive vital care from our medical team. The next few days will be critical for this sweet girl.

Your support of our Healing Touch Fund will help Izzy, and other pets just like her, get the urgent medical care they need to live happy healthy lives.

When Fay arrived at Faithful Friends she was very upset. She received a medical exam then our staff set her up with a comfortable living space and gave her time to adjust to her new surroundings. After a few days our team quickly noticed Fay seemed to have discomfort in her hind leg and did not want anyone to pet her or give her attention. Our veterinary team decided to take a second look and after some tests, Fay was diagnosed with bone cancer.

Fay needed to have emergency surgery to remove her leg right away. It was then that we realized just how much of a fighter she really was. Fay made it through the surgery and quickly began to adjust to her new life.  She now enjoys lots of attention including being pet and held in the arms of those who care for her. We couldn’t be happier to see her feeling better!

Electra came to Faithful Friends after someone found her roaming the streets in downtown Wilmington.  She was quickly examined by our medical team and tested positive for parvovirus, a highly contagious illness that causes vomiting, diarrhea, and weight loss. If left untreated, the illness can quickly become fatal.

Luckily, our medical team identified the symptoms and began treatment right away. The nights that followed were tough for this sweet pup, but our staff provided critical care and began to see signs of improvement.  Electra began to perk up and now seems to have turned a corner. She will continue to receive treatment and care at Faithful Friends until she is healthy again. Unfortunately, her growth will most likely be stunted due to effects the illness has had on her body.

Your support of our Healing Touch Fund will help Electra, and other pets just like her, get the urgent medical care they need  to live happy, healthy lives. Donate today to help us continue this lifesaving care.

Muffin is one the sweetest pups here at the shelter.  He never fails to put a smile on our faces! When he arrived, our veterinary team noticed there was a mass growing on one of his feet.  With the precision and care of our dedicated veterinarian, surgery was performed. Due to the invasive nature of the mass, Muffin’s toe had to be removed.  Muffin is currently under our team’s watchful eye and is expected to make a full recovery. We could not be happier that this lovable guy is back on his feet again and ready to find a forever home!

Your support of our Healing Touch Fund helped Muffin get the surgery he needed. Hundreds of other pets just like Muffin come to Faithful Friends each year. They are depending on us to ensure they live a happy, healthy life and we can provide them with that chance thanks to you! Donate today!
