Since we get up to 30 calls a day these days (and that includes many sad stories) it’s always great to run though a day and know how many animals are around and feeling better and out of pain thanks to our efforts. That’s what keeps us going, so I thought I’d share with you some of the happy endings we’ve encountered.
We helped a very frightened woman whose dog had run into a car (yep, the opposite of what you usually hear) get help for her pet.. The dog was badly injured, the woman was on disability and social security, and very scared she would have to put her pet down since she had no money for a vet. Her dog is healing and will be fine. There were two episodes of puppies with Parvo. The earlier we can get these very ill dogs to the vet, the better their chances. We helped sick kittens today and a 13-year-old dog who was having a great deal of effort moving, as well as a golden puppy who had gotten his paw stuck in the stairs and was in a lot of pain. All these animals got taken care of and are feeling better. And of course their owners are just as relieved as their pets. It was Gandhi who said “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Thank you to all who stop by, and to all who support us so we can continue helping.
