Holly (aka Punkin)

Most of you know since Maddox first got lost, several of us have worked together continuously to save fur babies that need us.. I personally saved several from the streets, shelters, just looking at craigslist, etc. and have continued helping by networking, fostering, transporting, etc.. Well I also receive messages all the time saying Jackie I saved this baby because I was looking for Maddox, etc, etc.. So up to October of last year we had saved 40 babies. And we seriously still continue to save babies on streets & shelters, etc.. It has been amazing to me to see how so many people have been connected all around the country because of MADDOX that continue to save lives!

God is good and is working miracles everyday all around us!! I believe with all my heart & soul this is what God wanted!!! I believe that even though Maddox is still Lost, God just chose him to make a difference in this world! I always knew Maddox was special but realize he is even more special than I ever realized..

Anyways today, I wanted to share an amazing transformation of a baby saved by Betsy McCann with Team Maddox! This sweet baby girl was found back on February 18th roaming in Oklahoma City, she was extremely emaciated, mal-nourished, pretty much just skin & bones. Betsy happened to be at the place at the right time and saw this precious girl. She is like me and would never leave her.. Betsy said it took about an hour to catch her but she finally did and she was so tired and hungry she was just glad to be safe. This precious baby could barely eat. We thought her jaw was dislocated or broken but the Vet informed us Because she was so underweight her jaw lacked support from lack of muscle and fat... The picture with the red background is how skinny she was. And you can't see her face but it was so sunken in.. It broke our hearts to see..

BUT now look at these pictures of her chilling in her bed and look how much weight she has gained! I was sent these pictures and barely recognized her.. Which was so good! I told Betsy OMG, she looks amazing!!! She looks so healthy and happy and loved!!! This is what all babies should look like, they should never look like the way she did when Betsy found her.. ='''((((

So I just want everyone to know how amazing Team Maddox is and even though this has been a nightmare for me.. I do believe it is all part of God's plan and I do believe we were all connected for a reason.. And it is the pictures like this that I get seeing babies saved that are SO HAPPY after we save them makes all my tears worth it!! It makes me feel like I have a purpose.. It makes me realize Maddox truly has a bigger purpose than I ever knew.. It makes me proud of my sweet baby Maddox, it makes me proud of Team Maddox, It makes me proud to be part of such an amazing group of people!!! There are so many stories.. I will try to keep sharing them.. So many babies saved each week.. And even one team Maddox member has transformed several baby birds..The list goes on & on.. All are truly amazing and shows me Miracles do happen every day!!

Maddox saved another baby!

Meet sweet baby Riesling. She is around 6-8 years old and was saved from death row at the Oklahoma City Shelter. 

This sweet baby girl is Maddox's miracle!!!I I truly believe with all my heart God wanted me & Maddox to save her.. I get emails every day on pet harbor of any baby that fits Maddox's description.. I saw her precious face and he picture tugged at my heart. I reached out to my shelter contacts and said "dare do I ask but what is status of this baby". This was about 5/6pm and the shelter said "she will be pts tomorrow".. I said "NO!! Can a rescue not save her?" and she said " She needs a commitment by 9am tomorrow".. I told my shelter contact.. "Okay pray I can make this Miracle happen!! I will beg! ;))"

I was freaking out and literally started shaking and sobbing and just started posting all over FB!! Copying my message below becaue maybe you can feel the urgency I was feeling..


I was just informed this baby is going to be euthanize tomorrow unless we can work a miracle!!! She has tumors and is geriatric but I think she deserves to be happy and live her last few days at home with someone to love her and snuggle with her and kiss her vs at a scarey shelter!!! And who knows if the tumors are even cancerous!! She is only 10 years old! That is not old for a min pin!!! Please anyone??? Will you save her??? I am begging!!!!! I don't know if she is a stray or surrender but this makes me sick.. I don't believe in dumping your babies at the shelter!! Come on people you don't dump your mom and dad at the shelter when they get older.. You let them live their last days in a nursing home where they are cared for and loved!!! I hate this world so much and it makes no sense!!! Ughhhhhhh

Well Praise the Lord because my friend, a team Maddox member Ann saw my post and she worked magic and found a rescue to save her within our very small window!! This is a true testimony of how sharing saves lives!!!! And Team Maddox is amazing!!! I believe with all my heart and soul, God put us all together for a reason and he wanted Maddox to save these babies.. So please will you share? We have over 5,000 people on this page so even if only a few of you donate $1.00, Riesling will get the vet care she needs to then get her a loving and forever home which she deserves...

If you'd like to keep up with Riesling, or are interested in adopting her, she is in Edmond Oklahoma with One Life Rescue & Rehab..
