Before and after: a foster home made all the difference for Pebble!
In the first picture: 10+ year old Pebble came to PAWS because her loving owner could not afford to care for her anymore. We tried to cheer her up with extra attention and blankets, but she was too depressed to interact.
Second picture: Look at her now! Thanks to foster mom Liz, Pebble is thriving and enjoying every comfort while she waits for adoption. This adorable senior is bursting with personality. She gets along with other dogs and walks well on a leash. To adopt her, email email@example.com.
Good news about Sam: he's stable and back at PAWS! He spent the night at Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center, where he'd arrived in critical condition due to untreated Addison's Disease. VSEC saved his life and he's starting to feel like his spunky self again.
We're accepting contributions toward his emergency vet bills via this link and would be so grateful for help: www.phillypaws.org/sam. Thank you to Renee, Morgan, Katherine, and Jocelyn for chipping in so far!
Now that he's recovering, we are seeking a loving adoptive or foster home for him. Sam is a 4-6 year old Jack Russell mix and will need daily meds to stay healthy and prevent future hospital visits. Some useful info on Addison's Disease can be found here: http://www.vetmedclinic.com/?p=295 Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help him.
Please keep Sam in your thoughts. He came to us in medical crisis due to Addison's Disease, lethargic and vomiting with a poor heartbeat. He's now at Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center receiving treatment and will be staying there overnight. Their veterinary team is working hard to stabilize him and we're hoping to have good news to share by tomorrow.
His emergency care will likely cost around $3,000. If you can help, we are gratefully accepting donations here: www.phillypaws.org/sam
