Standing Taller: Chloe Ann’s Story

It is AMAZING how much better you feel after a good bath and haircut, right Chloe Ann!?

We met this precious little girl on outreach. When we first met her mom, she looked so sad and asked us to take her. We asked, “You don’t really want us to take her, do you?” She shook her head no and said she was so sad she couldn’t afford grooming and flea treatment and the vet care she needed. She loved…

East Side Pet Crisis Fund: Zeus’s Story

Nine-month-old Zeus found himself in extreme pain after he hurt his eye wrestling with one of the other dogs in his home. It began as a small scratch on his eye, but the eye quickly ruptured and required emergency veterinary care. Zeus’s dad gave us a call because he had our card on his refrigerator from a previous visit, and we are so happy that he did! We were able to help his dad get t…

East Side Pet Crisis Fund: Lil Mama’s Story

About a week ago, Lil Mama was attacked by a dog. She got a laceration near her eye, and her family tried to treat it, but it became infected and swollen and she needed veterinary help. With nowhere else to turn, her family gave us a call. Lil Mama had been fixed through our Spay/Neuter Program, so they had worked with us before.

We were able to get Lil Mama in to see the vet at Hillsid…

We were able to support King and his family through our East Sid…

East Side Pet Crisis Fund: Red and Diamond’s Story

We met Diamond, Red, and their owners about a month ago. Red was really skinny and had difficulty putting on weight. Diamond had two previous litters, and they couldn’t go through yet another litter. We told them we could help with BOTH of those problems, and so we worked together to come up with a solution!

Red visited our friends at Hillside Animal Hospital, where he was examined and…

East Side Pet Crisis Fund: Rosie’s Story

We met Rosie back in May when she attended our vaccination in Village of Cahokia Park. Her mom was concerned about her ears–she had what appeared to be an ear infection, which was very itchy and irritating. After taking a look, we decided to get Rosie some veterinary care and set up an appointment at Hillside Animal Hospital. Rosie had her ears flushed and started on some medication, and feels…
