The Face of Dog Fighting

Mugsy was found on the side of the road, in with the trash, in a very ugly part of Houston. The inside of his mouth was mangled, and he has teeth broken. It was determined that he was used as a bait dog.

Please help us continue his medical care and bring him back to life. We started Mugsy's Fund at the Alvin Animal Clinic for him, and will continue that fund for any animals subjected to the hideous crime of dog fighting that we can help. Abuse at any level against the voiceless is beyond criminal, and should be reported. Please know that another dog can be saved from the life that Mugsy lived if we are vigilant and not afraid to speak out and if we always remember, "We Are Their Voice."

Vision Hills is posting Mugsy as a courtesy for a rescuer in Houston. You can donate directly to the veterinary clinic listed above, or you can donate through Vision Hills using the Paypal link on this page. One hundred percent of all donations will go directly to Mugsy's veterinary costs, and Mugsy's Fund.

We could not do what we do without you. That's the ongoing reality of running an animal sanctuary and rescue organization - we need your help to survive. Vision Hills' average cost to feed and provide care to our rescued animals is approximately $40,000 - $50,000 annually. Every month we use over 500 pounds of dry dog food and 5 cases of canned dog food. Plus, we go through a lot of Heartgard and Frontline for the dogs every month.

Other expenses include:

Medical care
Spay/neuter expenses

Vision Hills is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Your donation to Vision Hills is tax deductible.
