Sherman was attacked by an adult dog when he was 3 months old. He suffered a broken jaw, broken eye socket, broken nasal cavity and loss of his eyesight in the eye that was damaged. He needed to be rushed to the University of Minnesota to be saved from these injuries. They had to do emergency surgery on his jaw. Some of his teeth were lost and he will still need dental care/surgery in the future. He is currently 6 months old and thriving, but still needing care from the U of M doctors. He will be adopted when they give the okay, or if an adopter lives close enough to the university to make sure he gets to the doctor as needed. Meet Sherman here.

We rescue senior, special-needs and medically needy animals (mostly). We take the animals whom no one else will help and other rescues leave behind. These animals need an average of $500 in medical care and we receive an average of $57 in adoption fees for each animal. These Sponsor a Pet donations help bridge the gap. All four animals were adopted into lovely homes. Two of them have since passed on from natural causes; the other two are loved and happy.

Brady was received as a stray in October of 2018. He was cared for until his successful adoption on December 1st, shortly after the donation was received. From Facebook: “Looking for a jogging buddy? We’ve got the boy for you! Brady loves to run, run, run! Only 3 years old, this energetic and strong athlete would love to join an active and experienced family that will work his mind and body. If you can give this cutie pie that, then you can give him a miracle!

“Brady is a bouncy 52-lb., tan-and-white, neutered male American pit bull terrier mix. He came to the shelter having a POSSIBLE OWNER whom the shelter contacted, but no one came to claim him. Brady deserves a new family that will take him for keeps.”

Shamara #31956 is an office cat so we can monitor her diet and medications. From Facebook: “Meet Shamara! Shamara was surrendered to a local shelter and Purrfect Pals rescued her when her time ran out. Shamara is a social lady who craves attention and thrives on activity around her that keeps her engaged and mentally stimulated. She is quite playful, appreciates all types of cat toys and just wants to be loved! Shamara will sometimes give ‘love bites,’ doesn’t like her lower back/tush petted, and needs a home with cat-savvy people and without young children. Judging from her interactions at the shelter, Shamara would do best as an only cat.”

Shelby came to the shelter on Jan. 12, 2019, as an owner-surrender. Her owners surrendered her because she only tracks and trees the prey, but will not stay with the prey.

There is an interested party, but they are waiting to see what happens with her mange. Shelby is still available for adoption. Meet Shelby here.
