Noah, one of the more than 20 Yorkshire terriers and papillons who entered our care via a state seizure, had been severely neglected. His fur was long and matted, and due to the lack of grooming Noah had received, some of his fur had gotten into his mouth and wrapped around his teeth. In addition, the poor, scared little pup had severe dental issues. The situation broke the hearts of every employee at the Lawrence Humane Society. Thanks to the Dogly Do Good grant we received, our staff and volunteers were able to provide Noah — and all the dogs that came from the seizure — the care and attention they needed, including advanced dental procedures, grooming, and lots of love.
Noah soon gained confidence, and his personality started to shine. Once he made his adoption debut, it was only a matter of days before he found an incredible home with a family that cherishes him.
