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!


Zoey has really been through a lot in her life! She lost her mother when she was just a kitten but was adopted by a very loving family. Zoey slipped out of her house and broke her leg very badly. Her mama rushed her to a vet over an hour away and was given the sad news that Zoey’s leg needed to be amputated. Her mama is single and raising three children and could not pay the $625 for the necessary surgery, but could contribute $100. Let’s take a minute to “paws” and thank the Sustaining Members and donors who help with the $525 to get Zoey healthy and back home with her caring family!


Hannah is a sweet girl who was found by a caring woman. After searching for Hannah’s mom without success, Hannah was taken in by a financially strapped woman who just couldn’t imagine not helping the dog. Unfortunately, Hannah developed a vaginal and mammary tumor and because of her mama’s own medical bills, requested assisted from ART. The great community of Sustaining Members and donors came together and helped support the surgery Hannah needed. Hannah and her mama express their gratitude!
