Sara (posted 3/7 4:15 p.m)
1 1/2 yr // Female // 9lbs. // On medication for Kennel Cough: 1/2 tab x2 a day // AWL transfer (2/4) originally found stray (2/9) Behavior Note (Coordinator): Go slow with any invasive handling! Make friends first! Always ensure dog comes to you prior to contact especially small breeds which may “Bite first, bark later”.
Spade is on medication (oral tablet) to combat Kennel Cough. In house treatment is tough on a pup of this age (4 months) as contact with caregiver as well as exploration of the environment is imperative to optimal development. I`m probably feeling a little lousy, but if you keep to my medication schedule and provide regular walks I`ll perk up in no time!
Lucky for Beth we are able to treat Heartworm Infection in dogs. What is unlucky for her is that treatment for this horrible infection is long (3 months) so she has a ways to go being cooped up in our shelter. Caring for a Heartworm(+) dog is easy-just treat her like you would any dog with regular walks, human contact, mealtime and quiet time-but it is imperative to avoid high arousal activities like running, fetch or any highly aerobic activities.
Have you got the will and space to help a nice dog in need? Beth thinks that you do-and she`ll love you for it.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to put together a plan to get Beth through treatment and on to the adoption floor! Need a crate (highly recommended) and foster care swag? we`ll supply you!
The following foster animals have been claimed and/or already placed in foster care.
Gardner is allowing my leg to heal at his place!
Kybo, Posh, Mittens & Ginger
Margaret knows just what to do in the case we become symptomatic-talk to the doctor!
Collette & Chaz
As long as we are eating and we remain non-symptomatic there`s no need to get any of the doctors involved-we just wanna play! Kelsey knows what to do in the case our appetite plummets.
Gila, Alligator & Crocodile
Melanie is doing what she does best: encouraging play & free feeding! She even has a big room she has reserved just for us.
Shruti (new foster) is making sure I am going for regular walks to assist in healing my hip (I`ve recently had hip surgery).
Gabrielle is helping me to gain a little more weight by allowing me room to explore & play! My veterinarian tells me I could stand to gain some.
Rin (thanks Tamra!)
Under observation in an in-house (that`s in shelter to us animal welfare folk) foster care situation. I can now tell first hand how much Tamra loves all of the various critters under her care.
Lupin (thanks Jonathan!)
Jonathan is getting everything ready in his household to keep me happy while I finish up my treatment!
Tuna (thanks Angela!)
A former “Colony Cat” whom we assume has been at one time part of a TNR (that`s trap/neuter & release to us animal welfare folk) group. Unfortunately the colony manager seems to be unreachable and Tuna`s colony dispersed. Tuna bears the eartip to prove this as credibility. These colony cats are usually feral in temperament but miraculously Tuna has turned out to be a real sweetheart! Tuna needs foster time out of our shelter and limit her activity to ensure a partially healed leg fracture. No medications necessary. Just provide a quiet and easy going environment and time should take care of the rest. 4-6 week stay required.
