Help Mr. Krabs
To save mama dogs and their pups, provide care and enrichment, and find loving, forever homes.
ATR specializes in large-breed pregnant dogs and their pups who need time and space to grow and become socialized. Our dogs have significant social time with adults, children and other dogs, and we provide them with experiences that will help shape them into the very best pups they can be. Our mama dogs work with on site behaviorists to develop personalized programs to prepare them for life as your new forever family member. ATR is determined to give you all the information we know about our dogs so we can help find the perfect match for you. All of our dogs are altered, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on vaccines prior to adoption.
ATR is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and receives no tax or government funding. We do not sell, rent, or share our supporter information with any other organizations or third parties.
This sweet face is Mr. Krabs, who was adopted from us 3 years ago. We were contacted recently when his chip was scanned all the way in North Carolina! He was wandering the streets when a kind human found him. We’re not sure how he became a stray in North Carolina (when we contacted his previous owner they confirmed they had rehomed him). We knew we had to get him back and help him. At ATR, we commit to our dogs forever and no matter what.
We worked with some amazing volunteers and Many Paws Volunteer Transport Team to transport him back into our care. We soon found he was walking with a pronounced limp. He had visual muscular atrophy on his hind end and was lumpy in several areas. After two separate consultations, we confirmed that he had torn his cruciate ligaments in both hind legs.
This surgery is pricey — but we take our commitment to our dogs seriously. While we weren’t prepared for the expense, we did what we needed to do to make his surgery happen. We are happy to say that he is now recovering nicely in the home of our Foster Coordinator! His recovery will be a challenging one as both of his legs heal.
We weren’t prepared for this kind of expense. But we did it. Now, we are asking for your help. Two Pups Wellness Fund has generously offered to match all donations up to $2400! 🐾🥰🙌 Will you help us bridge the gap?
