We had a family come in who had gotten a puppy from a friend. This family was very low income. We were able to give him all his puppy shots. We have also made an appointment for him to be neutered and vaccinated for rabies, next month. We could make sure he was healthy and protected from deadly viruses. Could also make sure that he would not be a breeder to other dogs. The puppy the children got was a St. Bernard. I am sure that we will be helping them going forward with food. Mom realized how big this dog would get, but the children had no idea. to them he is a cute cuddly puppy.
We had a tuxedo cat in our shelter named Oreo. She has been there for several months. She was brought to us abused, frightened, and underweight. We were able to work with her and she is now a loving and sweet cat. She was able to be adopted into her forever home this past Saturday. We were able to have her up to date on vaccines, and she is doing well in her new home. She now has a family that loves her and that she loves! We will miss her, but we are very happy for her! That’s what we are all about.
