The dogs we rescue are senior dogs. The $22.50 was used to help Quincy, a senior dog with diabetes, get the vet care he needed. From his Petfinder profile: “Quincy is a 5-year-old, 14-lb. terrier mix. He will stare at you with his soulful eyes and melt your heart. He is super sweet with everyone he meets at home or away, wagging his tail gently and asking for some love. He gets along great with the other dogs at his foster home and is good with dogs he meets out in the world too. Quincy has a nice moderate energy level. He loves going for walks to the beach or the woods or anywhere else, and he is good on a leash. He’s also happy to entertain himself with a bone or just hang out around you at home. He would never turn down a game of fetch-the-tennis-ball, but he’s not obsessive about it. He’ll cheerfully ride along next to you in the car, often taking the opportunity for a nap. He is not a big barker but he does bark happily sometimes when he’s excited. Quincy was found in a severely emaciated, weak state. Yet despite his physical condition, he still wagged his tail and gave kisses. After receiving much-needed vet care and being diagnosed with diabetes, he is making a remarkable recovery. He has gotten much better in a short time and continues to improve every day. He’s gradually gaining weight and should reach a healthy weight of 16 lbs. or so. Quincy is still in the process of getting his diabetes under control, which requires frequent testing. He will require two daily insulin shots for life. Quincy wants to find a diligent, loving person who can help him manage his diabetes. In return, you’ll get an amazing companion and loving friend. Quincy was picked up as a stray and taken to the Hollister Animal Shelter. POMDR was contacted immediately to take this pup into our care to start medical treatment.”
