We have an update on Luke our senior, blind poodle mix. Luke is cleared to have cataract surgery on one eye, but the other eye is too damaged. The good news is, Luke will have restored vision in one eye after the surgery.
Since his arrival Luke has been hanging out with our staff and volunteers, and is the sweetest little guy who walks great on leash and LOVES to sniff out the window on car rides!
Thank you for your ongoing support, we'll keep you posted on his journey.Continue

On July 19th, 2014 Marvella was brought to us by Animal Control, with a traumatic injury that shattered one of her hind legs and badly damaged her elbow. Our medical team did everything they could to save this sweet girl, including removing her hind leg. After surgery, Marvella went into one of our foster homes to heal. She healed very quickly, and soon proved to be a very happy, and silly, "tripod".
During a follow up visit to determine if she was ready for her spay surgery, we discovered that Marvella was pregnant. So, off to our maternity suite she went and a few days later, Marvella gave birth to four babies! Marvella and babies returned to their foster home, and Marvella has been a fantastic mama.
Marvella is one of our many success stories, thanks to your generous support through our Love Fund, and the unwavering compassion and efforts of our staff and volunteers. Thank you for believing that the compassionate way is the only way.
