Our furry friend Zander had a massive tumor on his ear that erupted and was in need of surgery to remove it. With the threat of infection, the situation was urgent and his mama could not cover the full cost. She lives paycheck to paycheck and support a child and desperately needed the help from Sustaining Members and donors to get Zander back to 100%. Many thanks to all who contributed to make this possible!


Lucky didn’t feel as though his name fit the cards he was recently dealt. After an unfortunate transition from a dual to single income home, his owner was struggling to come up with the money to pay for painful anal masses to be removed. Many thanks to the Sustaining Members for covering the $508 procedure and making this sweet dog feel “Lucky” again!


Our buddy BJ and her mama came to ART for help with her mouth issues. She had a ruptured tumor, needed many teeth pulled and was having difficulty eating. This pair had been together since BJ was a puppy and her mama wanted to resolve the issues, but was living on very limited budget. We thank the many donations, especially from Sustaining Members, that supported BJ’s dental work and her neuter.
