It's an Armadillo!     If you see something, do something.
This sweet girl was laying on the side of the road and looked dead, as her back was split open with little limbs attached. Her little legs were making movement but apparently nobody else was going to check on her. It would mess me up forever if I didn't stop to help someone in need! Well sure enough she was still alive. Armadillos are nocturnal creatures so that means she was hit before sunrise. How long did she lay there suffering in pain? It was at least 6 hours! She was wrapped in a towel and taken to the wildlife sanctuary to be euthanized humanely. Turns out, only her shell was damaged. After some pain medicines, a little stitching, and rehab, she is expected to make a full recovery!

 
I am just posting this to encourage people to pay attention to their surroundings, and HELP when they can. A hundred cars must have passed this armadillo as she lay helpless in the road, kicking in an effort to get up. Not a single person stopped to help. Maybe they weren't paying attention or were in a hurry, but there's only one way to find out for sure. The very least we can do, is give them 5 seconds to make sure they are not suffering, and start paying attention! Put the cell phone down!

Old Man Needs A Home Northwest Indiana by TopSpot4U

If you can't find Prancer, it's safe to assume he's tucked himself into bed. Some days, Prancer is simply too comfortable to get out of bed. He deserves to be spoiled, he's earned it.
Prancer has been in his foster home for 6 months now, partly due to his age and his breed. Although he's 11 years old, Prancer has a clean bill of health from the veterinary clinic.....wear you find them in animal print scrub tops. He's on a joint supplement to help with arthritis. He's fully vetted, up to date on vaccines, neutered, and has pristine lab work. Prancer likes short walks if the weather is nice, he enjoys car rides to Starbucks, and he LOVES snuggling with his foster mom.

If we can find him a home, it makes room for another dog to be saved.

He was an only dog his whole life, so he needs to be reminded that other dogs in the home can have attention too. If rules are put into place right away, Prancer lives harmoniously with other dogs. Prancer is a frumpy old man weighing only 35 lbs. 



Adopt The Seniors
by Tara Lambertino
2X2 Rescue

March 12, 2022
Behavior, age, breed, history . . . all things that can be discriminated against in rescue these days. Open your heart and your home to a pet you wouldn't normally consider, and you may learn more about yourself than you ever thought possible. We currently have 2 advanced aged seniors, grey face and all. Both dogs will be with us a long time simply from fear of adopting a pet and the heartache coming sooner than with a younger pet. We as humans tend to be selfish when it comes to time. We want more, right?
Look at what dogs want...........

 
They live in the moment with no idea there is a future. Their needs are simple and easy to meet. Overall, they want to be cared for and loved. They wake up every day loving you, loving food, loving a soft bed until the day they don't wake up. That day comes for all of them, and we can't focus on it, or we forget to see the amazing perfection in them EVERY day. We will continue to rescue the senior citizens of the animal world until our last days here. 2x2 Rescue is made up of a group of the most compassionate humans with a LOVE for the old ones out there. Donations can be made at 2X2Rescue@gmail.com

Bear Bile Farming To End in S.K.

AWESOME NEWS! Bear bile farming is coming to an end as announced by South Korea. 

Animal protection groups have tried for decades to put an end to the cruel trade and finally an agreement with Bear Farmers Association has been signed. What a relief!

At this time, it is not legal to take bile from live bears in that country, but it is legal to kill them at 10 years of age for their gall bladder. Until they reach their 10 years of age, they are kept in damp, rusty, tiny cages all alone with terrible diets.

At a very young age, these bile bears are ripped from their mothers and become physically and even mentally broken.

This long awaited agreement will put the bears in a shelter that will be constructed by the government, and some put in a wildlife sanctuary. The bear owners are to take care of the remaining bears humanely.

The power of petitions work! We are so very happy today!!

Purchase a scrub top with bears and celebrate a victory!



Easter And The New Pet Bunny Rabbit June 18, 2021
We MUST do better!
In NW Indiana alone, in the month of June, just one Rescue, .......2x2 Rescue caught THREE abandoned domesticated rabbits. These were once someones pets, presumably a child's Easter present. But when the joy of a new present wears off, it is up to the parent to do the right for the animal! People must assume that since wild rabbits survive outside, their domesticated pet can as well, so they turn it loose. This is the furthest thing from the truth. These rabbits can succumb to high temperatures, traffic, stress, inhumane people, predators, and parasites when they are discarded outside. When you release a domesticated pet into the wild, the end results is suffering, followed by death. Please, contact a local rescue or shelter if you're unable to care for a pet.
Red Hot Chili Pepper was  hiding under a car all day, and was corralled into a fenced yard. His rear foot was broken beyond repair and required amputation. He’s healing wonderfully!
FOB was around an apartment complex for 2 weeks, only one family was compassionate enough to leave him food and seek rescue for him. He's a young baby, and surely wouldn’t have survived without their help.
Radiohead was in a neighborhood between 2 busy streets. Tricky to catch, she knew the best hiding spots. Good samaritans were able to corner her and put a net over her. Found out that she got loose from her owner. Instead of making an effort to find her, they threw out all of her belongings.

As long as we are in business, your purchases will help us.......help them.
The word "rescue" in every sense of the word, comes to mind when viewing these pictures. This dog was found abandoned in a box behind Stracks in Hammond, Indiana on February 3rd. If you're not familiar with Indiana,... we are in the winter season with snow and temperatures in the teens.
He/she was taken to a shelter, where 2X2 Rescue went in and pulled him. This is why we always choose to support this rescue.......they go for the ones who were dealt a raw deal, the ones who are just as deserving of life as any others. It's unknown at this time, whether he has one eye or two eyes, or how many limbs he has.

This is truly disgusting that someone can do this to a living creature! The rescue is taking him to their veterinarian to be checked and treated. If he is healthy enough to save, he will then go to a groomer and surely be shaved from head to toe after a nice warm bath.
Each and every purchase you make, helps us help them. Check back for the after pictures and updates. Thank you for all your help!
 
 
UPDATE: February 6, 2020
The shaving is complete and all of his matted fur is a sad memory!

He is living in a fostor home and being treated for infections in both eyes.

This little poodle who is now named Renoir, turned out to be one of the sweetest dogs, holding no grudges on the idiot who neglected and abandoned him in freezing cold winter, boxed up behind a department store.

To help save a life, everyone can do something, whether large or small.

Renoir will soon be available for adoption on Pet Finder.

A selfless act of Love
Bittersweet

In the last 10 years, I have failed at fostering dogs........meaning I ended up keeping all of them. In my younger years I was able to foster and find homes for the dogs with no problems. These last 10 years though, have proven me weak at letting go. When I was asked to foster Leamington the Chug, (chihuahua - pug), I was told there was a pending adopter that wanted him but she wasn't quite ready as there was some home improvements that needed to be done and Lemmie still needed his vetting and neuter. I was told I would only have him for about a month. Of course I still fell in love, but this time I had to let go. Claudia came yesterday to adopt him and it was so hard to do, I bawled like a baby.  He's going to the most perfect home. Claudia assured me with everything I needed to know, and we will stay in touch.   I promised I could do this, and I did keep my word!

Rescues all over, look for and NEED foster homes so more dogs can be saved from shelters. Everybody can do something! Remember...........instead of shopping for your dog and making breeders rich, go adopt from your local shelter. If you are not in the position to adopt, try to foster to get that animal out of the shelter and into a warm comfy home. If you can't foster, you can sponsor, or even donate......monetary donations or donations of needed supplies. Not everybody can donate, and if you can't, you can educate friends and family, network on social media and even cross post pets up for adoption. To help save a life, everyone can do something, whether large or small.

 parrot named Goober sitting in a tree  When a bird looks like a flower
September 5, 2020

On this glorious summer day, while sitting outside with my parrot named Goober, who's wings are clipped, I was reading a book of poems, coffee in hand and really getting into this book.

I heard a hummingbird which is nothing unusual, as I have hummer feeders in the yard. In fact, one feeder was pretty close to where I was sitting, so I didn't really think anything of the hummer buzzing. Goober was sitting on his perch next to me enjoying the morning.

The humming continued and while I didn't think anything of it, I suddenly heard Goober start making a noise that he makes when he's nervous....like "uh, uh, uh, uh, uh,". I look over at Goober (his middle name is Precious) and the look on his face was priceless! Picture a cross-eyed frozen parrot.

The hummer was so close to us, that I could see his tongue shooting in and out while licking through Goober's red head feathers that the hummer clearly thought was nectar made special for him. As Goober sat there so still, I was in shock at what I had seen and can't even imagine what Goober was thinking. Now, for me, my camera is never where I need it!

After the hummer left, Goober fanned his tail, pinned his eyes and spread his wings, either laughing at the hummer or telling him to never come back.

Later this evening after dinner, me and Goober headed back outside for a few minutes, him in his tree perch and me 3 feet away watering flowers.I glanced up at Goober as I keep constant watch on him, and there he is with the hummer again! This time Goober was making no noise and just letting the hummer have his way with the nectar colored feathers atop his beautiful head.

Listen up .........I'm going to tell you how to get that warm selfless feeling of gratification that comes with saving the life of an innocent animal.

Have you ever thought of fostering a dog until a rescue finds it's new home? 

This concept is vital to rescues and shelters both. Space is freed up in the shelter and the rescue can then see the animals true personality and place them in the best possible home. The dog you foster is now free of stress from the shelter and will begin to show his personality. The light in their eyes will shine again, and they will heal and prosper in your home with time and love until it's time for them to go to their new forever home. That feeling is bittersweet and will leave a hole in your heart, but you get the happy memories and the pride of saving a life. 

All you do is love on them and take care of them until the rescue notifies you that the dog/cat has found a home. You  will be sad and probably cry as you have probably become attached to them, and then that is when the warm fuzzy feeling kicks in. You then realize YOU saved a life! Most ALL rescues supply everything you will need. You just supply the love and the home.

animal print cotton scrub top fabric with fox

March 12, 2020

Do you have an idea why Fox would come so close in your yard? Seams like it's always between March and May? It's to get away from Coyotes who are further out. The Fox just wants to raise their babies without Coyotes digging them up and killing them. After the babies (kits) are born, mama will move them in a few weeks and you won't see so much of them. If they have 6 kits, usually only 2 to 3 of them will still be alive come September.

Fox mainly eat rats, mice, rabbits and some woodchucks, they do not want to eat your children and pets. It has been known that some cats and fox have even become friends. Please don't disturb a Fox den, or relocate the family. Enjoy the new yard entertainment while the kits grow, play and scurry around with each other tumbling along the yard. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the animation in your back yard.

Afraid to let your pets out once you realize you have Fox renting in your yard? Nothing happened to your pets before you realized you had company. They just want to raise their young.

Mama will work day and night to feed her family rodents from your yard and they even eat quite a bit of insects, as they are omnivores.


Left: Critters.....our Fox animal print scrubs fabric that you can choose in any style and size. We have been searching for more fabric with Fox and have found a really cute one that is arriving at the end of April.

Our scrubs are custom made so you can have them
any way you want them...... even made in the USA!

Ever wonder?
Our motto has always been that our scrubs are "not just for nurses". Our scrubs are worn by prison gaurds, prison nurses, certain offices at the steel mills, massage therapy, bait and tackle shops, teachers, doctors, nurses, dentists, veterinary clinics, wildlife rescue, bowlers, people wearing them as street clothes and the list goes on. Do you ever wonder what ever happened to somebody you used to deal with previously, like a teacher, a clerk, a doctor, a customer?
Well.......Paige Davis used to wear our scrubs and she is someone I want to tell you about, and somebody I would like to meet one day and be able to watch her work as I am in awe of her!
I first came to know about Paige when she was an intern at Centre Wildlife Care in Port Matilda, PA wearing our animal print scrubs and being trained by Karen Kuhn who just so happens to be a friend of mine,  and she told me a few things about Paige that I'd like to share with you. Karen says Paige was amazing with all of the animals but "magical" with the birds, especially the birds of prey which turned out to be her passion. She was dubbed the bird whisperer.
Paige is now a curator of bird training at the World Animal Sanctuary, just outside of St. Louis, caring for, training, handling and showing birds......including Clark, the bald eagle that she flies at ball games etc. Clark has his own seat on the airplanes, in a carrier, next to Paige and he stays in the hotel rooms with her! He actually likes to sit on a perch and watch TV, with Jurassic Park being his favorite movie.
When World Bird Sanctuary had baby Emus hatch, Paige raised them in her apartment so they'd be used to being around people. The Emus now stay at the sanctuary but the birds don't freak  out when folks are touring since Paige raised them, they are used to being around people now and  it's much safer for the handlers too.
Whenever you see the Liberty Insurance commercials (and who hasn't) you can remember now that Paige trained Limu the Emu's trainer! Sure did.
Paige is gorgeous in full costume, handling the birds at the Renaissance festivals but then Paige is just beautiful inside and out!
This week Paige is busy in Utah at the Falcon convention where the top left picture was taken.
 

She started out wearing scrub tops!
