Ellen's matted fur

This right here is approximately 2 pounds of matted fur! Trio Animal Foundation picked up a clump of matted fur from an open access shelter. The fur on poor Ellen’s legs was so heavy that it was starting to rip out at the root. You could hardly recognize that was a dog. Now this 2-year-old girl is ready for her new life to begin.

Cedar the rescued dog

Just looking at this dog is enough to make anyone weigh down with sadness. Cedar was named after the Golf Course close to where he was waiting to be picked up by someone. He was hairless from stress, with bones poking through his skin. Since then, Cedar has found a great home with good care where he fits right in. Just look at how much hair he has!

Here is Treasure. She was just 2 years old when she was found, and with her thick and matted fur, she was unable to walk.

A visit to the vet made the beautiful Treasure emerge again.
