GADSDEN, ALABAMA.....We got a call from a Vets office in Gadsden, AL. They needed help with a four-year-old pocket pitty that appeared to have a dislocated hip. The Humane Society had brought him over. Not sure what happened to this sweet pup, but he had left-sided craniodorsal hip luxation. Unfortunately, by the time they had reached out to us, the injury was now chronic and would require a Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO).
EDISTO, SC....It takes a Village to save one abused animal, but it starts with one Good Samaritan determined not to abandon an animal they have found in distress. Sweet Willow was found near the Edisto River in a swampy area sitting beside a blanket. A Good Samaritan had to take a boat to get her because she was essentially on a swamp island.
Sadly, we have to let everyone know that beautiful Sky has crossed over The Rainbow Bridge. Sky showed significant improvement a week after her shunt procedure. She had to go back to see her Neurologist, Dr. Jason King, to have the pressure adjusted once, making a big difference. Unfortunately, it did not last. One day she was good, and the next, she was not. Dr. King remained optimistic she could get through this transition period.
BEAUFORT, SC...I was sent a heart-breaking picture from Beaufort County Animal Services almost two months ago of a dog with a massive tumor on her head. She was a six-year-old yellow lab. I offered to help if the Owner was not found. With Covid-19 this last year, we never know the entire story of how these innocent Souls end up in harm's way. Blondie had a microchip registered that BCAS was contacting to get Blondie back to her rightful Owner.
BEAUFORT, SC......I received a note from a Special Ed. Teacher begging for help for her 11-year-old Maltese named Sugar. She explained he had not been eating or drinking for the last four days and was now lethargic and in terrible pain. I explained that we only do medical abuse cases and gave her some names of Vets that I felt would help her figure out what the problem was. The conversation went on until I realized this person had no financial means to help her pup.
BEAUFORT, SC.....I hope all the Mothers out there enjoy a peaceful, relaxing day being loved by all your two and 4-legged children. I think everyone in some form or fashion is a Mother to someone or something, whether it be a human, animal, or the Earth. We are always nurturing and loving something.
RANDOLPH COUNTY, NC...Our sweet Roady is a beautiful 14-year-old Lab that was surrendered to the shelter because the Owners no longer wanted him. He was covered with fleas, lesions on his back, emaciated, and could barely walk. Sweet Roady was so defeated he could barely hold his head up. There was no way I could not help this beautiful Old Soul.
