You can show your support for Buster and the other senior dogs residing at Marty’s Place through an annual or monthly sponsorship, a one-time donation, a pet store gift card or an in-kind contribution of supplies.
We can always use paper towels, disinfecting wipes, kitchen trash bags, and of course, “poop” bags.
At 31 pounds, Buster was overweight and as a result, had somewhat limited mobility. But that didn’t stop him from following our volunteers from place to place, wanting to be a part of everything.
Despite the obvious effort it took, during his first week at the sanctuary, Buster walked continuously from one end of the east wing to the other - and out in his play yard as well. This became known as “Buster’s weight loss program” after he walked off a whole pound that week!
Buster now weighs 27 pounds (a 10% weight loss). And he continues to gain mobility and flexibility. He even slipped out of his harness and had to be fitted with a smaller one!
If you haven’t yet, please check out Buster’s video, showing off his newfound exercise capabilities. It’s sure to give you a laugh for the day!
