SCP

2/17/17: In just a couple of days, Sandy has really perked up. On top of everything else, she also had a yeast infection in her ears, which is now being treated. She's a real trooper!

2/9/17: Sandy has had her mass removed and is recovering well. She is Heartworm positive and will have her treatment next week on Monday and Tuesday and be ready to come back on Wednesday.

She is really a nice dog. We need to find her a foster spot; of course she is a bigger dog, but she's house-trained.

2/8/17: Sandy is a super-sweet Chocolate Lab that came into the shelter with an awful hernia. She's scheduled for surgery.



SAMANTHA - FEMALE - SHORT-HAIRED CAT - 9-11 YEARS

SCP

1/18/17: Samantha is 9-11 years old; currently living at the shelter until we find a foster home for her; she's a very sweet girl that is very loving. She prefers to have her head rubbed instead of being held. She gets along with other cats and is happy to co-exist with them, but would be happy as an only cat. Samantha is fine with dogs; doesn't pay much attention to them.



AXEL - MALE - MIN PIN - 7 YEARS

Go to Top Go to Bottom
SCP
1/6/17: Axel is a 7 year old Min Pin who was found with 3 other dogs in an abandoned house. He is a sweet fellow who loves people. Axel has dry eyes and needs drops twice a day.

Please Click Here to help us with Dante's medical needs. Thank you.

5/31/16: Dante saw the vet again today; he is now on 17 units of insulin twice a day. His swollen eye is a concern.

4/2/16: Dante's foster mom has told us that Dante has gone blind, his lingering high blood sugar took its tole. Dante is doing well even with the loss of his sight, he is learning to follow instructions such as 'step' when going up and down steps to go outside.

I assured his foster mom that SCP will not abandon Dante because of this new disability. If I have learned anything in my few years in rescue, there is someone for Dante; we can look back and say it's amazing. His forever home is out there; we just need to be patient and get his story in circulation.

On a positive note, his blood sugar is 370 and stable; target is 300; it was over 600. He is on 20 units of insulin a day, 2 shots of 10.

Please help by telling your friends about Dante....

3/22/16: Dante is a big boy, 70 lbs, he wants to be a lap dog, very friendly to humans and dogs alike, totally non aggressive. Dante walks well on a leash, he is house trained, likes to play with toys.

Dante is a diabetic, he is not yet available for adoption due to the fact his diabetes is not under control. Dante started out with 10 units of insulin, then went to 12, now at 14, with his blood sugar level nowhere near under control. Dante is seeing the vet weekly to get his sugar tested.

There are health risks involved with his sugar being out of control, which we hope he will not have to endure. Dante drinks a lot and in turn must go to the bathroom frequently, he is on a strict feeding schedule (every 12 hours) followed by his insulin shot, which he takes like a champ.

We still have our fundraiser open and anyone wanting to donate to Dante's meds would be appreciated. They can also drop a donation off at the shelter or mail it to the P.O. Box. Just note for SCP.
