You Just Saved These
Their heartbreaking rescue story
began back in October when they arrived at a distant shelter we've worked with in the past. They had come in as strays in
"really rough shape". When an owner came forward to claim them, the Animal Welfare authorities had strict requirements
before releasing them. Continue with the medical care they both desperately need or surrender them back to the shelter. 12
year old Bobby was their biggest concern, sadly diagnosed with Heartworm Disease while in shelter. But Suzie, guessed at around
5 or 6, clung to Bobby for comfort. So closely bonded, they needed to stay together. Nevertheless, the owner returned Bobby
to the shelter after only one day. He admitted he didn't have the means to follow through with his care. But then, Suzie stopped
eating. Without Bobby, she was shutting down. Thankfully, the owner had enough sense to surrender her to the shelter too.
We are so very grateful he did.
Given the sensitive nature of this
rescue case, we cannot name the shelter that saved these two first but we do want to extend our deepest gratitude to them
for all they've done. While in shelter, Bobby began treatment for the Heartworm. Both received much needed nail trims, baths,
and good quality food. And Suzie had her spay and a dental done. Bobby desperately needs a dental too but we need to focus
on the Heartworm treatment first which is daunting enough.
We've got someone else to thank for
this Christmas Miracle come early.
That success you made happen at our 15th Annual BEAGLE BASH
FOR CASH made this happen.
Bless you all from nose to tail.
As I write this, the good folks at Critter Cab Animal Transport are bringing these two HOME to us over the next several
Christmas has definitely come early for our bonded pair!
A train set for Bobby, a dolly for Sue?
Nah…we're gonna do better than that.
We're gonna give these two precious souls one HOWL of a loving HOME for Christmas.
