Your dedication and support has allowed us to give so many animals a new leash on life already this year. Where do we even begin?
About a month ago, we shared with you five dogs that left our organization and joined the London Humane Society in Ontario, Canada. We’re happy to report that Lou Reed, Annabelle, Ladybug, and Nikki have found their forever homes. Mr. Miagi remains in their care looking for his future family while melting the hearts of their team.
In February, Mikey came to us scared and weary of what would become of his experience with us. We soon realized that something wasn’t right with this pup’s back left leg. Our medical team sprang into action consulting our local veterinary partners to get to the bottom of Mikey’s discomfort. The veterinarian suspected a previous dislocation or severe hip dysplasia and recommended amputation. This isn’t an ideal situation for Mikey but we were confident that he would be able to live the life he dreamed of with just three legs instead of four. So we sent him in for surgery and not much after he found his forever home.
It is not just dogs that you help us save, it’s cats too! Our partnerships with local pet stores continue to strengthen and last year helped us adopt a record number of our feline friends. As our resources expand we’re able to provide even more animals with a home. For instance, Kung Fu is currently available for adoption from our offsite location at Pet Supplies Plus in Dearborn at the corner of Oxford and Telegraph. He tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) but can go on to live a normal life. According to the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, FIV is a slow-acting organism, and neither a human nor a dog can be infected through contact with an infected cat. We’ve found so many deserving kitties with FIV their forever home and we look forward to helping Kung Fu find his. To learn more about FIV, we recommend you visit the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine website.
All of these partnerships, milestones, and life-saving treatments wouldn’t be possible without your support. So from all of us both four and two legged, thank you!
