THE STORY:

A man contacted PAWS after his mother died to surrender the cat she’d gotten from us five years ago. We assured him that, as promised at adoption, we’d take the cat back at any time during her life. He asked if we’d be able to help him also place his mother’s four dogs, three dachshunds and a beagle. At that point, the only service we were offering was our "Right Dog - Right Home" program in which we post dogs in need of a new home on our Petfinder page and put people who respond in touch with owners. But these dogs were homeless and could no longer stay where they had been living. Our adoption partner Senior Dog Lodge agreed to provide temporary homes for the four dogs through its foster care network, but did not have the financial resources to provide the vet care these dogs needed. The deceased owner of the dogs had used our veterinary assistance several times throughout their lives, so we felt we should keep helping, both with needed medical care and rehoming. The dachshunds are Chloe, a 17-year-old long-haired sable; Annie, a 7-year-old long-haired black and tan; and Charlie, a 6-year-old long-haired black and tan. And then there is Pepper, a 9-year-old beagle. We had the four dogs bathed and clipped to remove mats and placed in foster homes, then began veterinary care. Pepper had a large hematoma treated and a mammary mass removed. The doxies are needed dental work, including numerous extractions. Chloe’s was most pressing, she needed several tooth extractions and to be on antibiotics while her mouth recovered. Annie is on a much-needed weight loss program, through gradually increasing daily walks, and is feeling much better after she had dental surgery to remove broken and decayed teeth. Charlie had his teeth cleaned and need a mass removed as well. The dogs are all doing well and responding to care, but their expenses have been significant. Our good samaritan emergency funds have been depleted, and in order to continue to reach out to those animals most in need, we need your help to replenish our resources. Every donation helps, please share and spread the word so that in the future PAWS can help more dogs in need like these.
