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.


Keef was having a blast on a play date until he got out of the gate and was struck by a car. His leg was badly broken and needed surgery ASAP. His papa is a student and is not currently working and his mama doesn’t bring in much at her job. A BIG thanks to Sustaining Members and donors who gave the $600 needed to get Keef back up and running around again!
