Little Bruiser came to Southside after being attacked by another dog in the home. Food was scarce and Bruiser paid the price when he made his way to the food bowl. Unfortunately, his owners did not get him the medical attention he needed. He came to us with a horrific wound that needed urgent care. Southside provided him with the veterinary and foster care he needed. We are thrilled to announce that Bruiser is completely recovered and has already left his bad days behind him. He is a typical, happy puppy ready for a forever home.
There are countless stories of neglected, injured, and elderly animals that have been lucky enough to make their way to Southside Animal Shelter. We help to re-home over 2,000 animals per year. Of course, all of this takes money…lots of money.
We take pride in having provided our animals with the best care over the past 20 years, but because the majority of our funding goes to the direct care of our animals, the years have taken a toll on our facilities. With support from you and others, we were able to convert our cat facility into a free roaming cat room last year. Now it is the dogs’ turn! Our dog room is in dire need of some improvements. We would like to introduce Project Pupgrade!
