Fern is the WBKR Pet of the week!

Last week we were asked to take a senior lab from one of our partner shelters. We had met Fern during a shelter visit a few weeks ago so when we were called, we said yes with no hesitation. But taking in Fern hasn’t been without concerns or expense. You see Fern, being an elderly lady, has lost most of her hearing. She also has two masses on her, which will be checked later this week to see if we are dealing with cancer or lipomas. Or if it’s one of each. And Fern is heartworm positive, which complicates everything. We are not even sure what to deal with first. This is what we do know. Fern is a sweet old lady who despite having masses and heartworms, also has a heart full of love to give. She can’t hear you speak loving words to her but she knows what you’re saying by the wag of her tail. Fern’s treatment will be expensive. But even more important than her treatment is her comfort. We will be working with the vets to determine how to best treat Fern and make the time she has left as comfortable as possible. If anyone would like to open his/her home to this sweet girl, please email us at info@sparkyrescue.com. We are also collecting donations to help with her medical care. Thanks in advance for giving and sharing.

  • Frankie is the WBKR Pet of the week!

    Meet Frankie – DRD Graduate

    Frankie is a young lab mix, maybe about nine months. We were asked to take him by a nearby shelter as he had been hit by a car and their vet suggested euthanizing him. Frankie had a broken leg, torn ACL, and numerous bruises and lacerations on his body. Although his leg did not heal quite right, he gets around pretty good. He is still healing from his torn ACL. He loves other dogs and he loves to play. Mostly for us, he just rolls on his back for a belly rub.

    Frankie is a Death Row Dog. A graduate of a prison training program at the Green River Correctional Complex, in Central City, KY. Each dog lives in a cell with two trainers. This is a 12-week intense training program that is designed for the dog’s unique behavior needs as well as basic obedience, house training, crate training and of course, tricks.

  • Miracle is the 92.5 WBKR Pet of the week!

    Meet Miracle

    Miracle received her name because when she came into rescue she was in rough shape. She came to SparKy with demodex mange and a ruptured right eye. Remarkably, the eye healed and did not need to be removed, though it will always be a little different than the left. It gets droopy when she gets tired and it is slightly discolored, but we believe she does have vision in it. The vet says the difference is purely cosmetic. Miracle has been working hard on her housetraining, though being a stubborn hound, she’s not 100% yet. This little girl is busy and is not one to sit on the couch and snuggle with you for long, unless she’s tired. She wants to play- a lot! Miracle loves toys- especially anything that squeaks or crinkles. She loves other dogs no matter how big or small. She is highly food motivated!If you are interested in Miracle, please go to www.sparkyrescue.com and fill out our application.
