Guinness Update 04/15/13

Guinness has been through a lot! We were lucky enough to have two orthopedic surgeons take a look at him. Both were in agreement that the severity of Guinness’ femoral fracture was such that normal pins and wires would not properly repair the break and much more extensive plating would be required. Dr Winkler from […]

Belle Update 04/09/13

Wow what a day… and Belle really handled everything in stride- we couldn’t ask for a sweeter girl though it all. This morning Belle was scheduled for surgery at Red Bank Veterinary.

Introducing Todd

This handsome boy is Todd! Todd was a stray found in the Lancaster County, PA woods. Once he was settled in the shelter, the amazing staff there worked with Todd to coax him out of his shell.
