Another Vaccine Clinic Helps 133 Pets

On November 19, we held our fifth vaccine clinic. Thanks to generous supporters like you we were able to provide rabies vaccines, distemper vaccines, and microchips to 133 cats and dogs in the 46806 neighborhoods. 

Despite snow flurries and biting wind, pet owners were willing to stand outside for hours so that their family pets could receive the medical care they so deserve.

Hats off to our generous donors, our incredible volunteer team, our dedicated staff, and Melissa Osborn, our Pet Promises and Community Outreach Coordinator.

Adoptable Petsadoptables


Peridot is a 6-year-old, domestic shorthair mix.

My name is Peridot, because of my beautiful eyes! I can be a bit skittish at first, but when I warm up, I'm very sweet and loving. I came to the shelter pregnant and then stayed in a foster home until my babies and I were ready for adoption. Fast forward to today...I'm looking for my forever home!

Jester is an 11-month-old, 50lb Smooth Collie mix.

I'm Jester, a fun-loving, handsome pup. I'm playful and loving and full of personality. I can be a handful, so I would do well with obedience classes. The staff recommend I go to a home with no children.

The holidays are approaching fast and that usually involves several gatherings through the end of the year for many people. This also creates new opportunities for our cunning canines (and sometimes felines!) to get themselves into trouble. With many new or different people around and with most owners being very busy and preoccupied, dogs especially are good at being sneaky and getting into things they shouldn't.

One of the most common hazards on Thanksgiving is the turkey. Many pets cannot resist the wonderful smell of the turkey bones. But the bones themselves can break and splinter when eaten, causing an obstruction (blockage) in the intestines or perforating (poking through) the wall of the intestine and seeding bacteria into their abdomen. Both of these scenarios can cause severe illness in your pet and may become life threatening and need emergency care.

The fat drippings from your turkey are also a potential health hazard. Any fatty food can potentially cause GI upset including vomiting and diarrhea. A more serious condition called pancreatitis may also develop. In mild cases of pancreatitis the dog usually has vomiting, diarrhea, may be lethargic and is often painful in their abdomen. Mild cases can many times be treated on an outpatient basis with special low-fat, bland food and medications to help control any symptoms the dog may have. Unfortunately, some cases of pancreatitis can be severe and require hospitalization, sometimes for several days, and much more intense supportive care. Luckily, many patients respond to therapy and are monitored for any recurrence of pancreatitis later on. Some of our patients are not so lucky, and the inflammation can be so severe that other problems develop and it quickly becomes life threatening for them.

Other holiday foods containing onions, garlic, raisins, yeast dough, etc. are also something to watch for during holiday cooking and baking season. Each of those items cause varying symptoms and affect different organ systems in the body.
If your pet ingests anything concerning, please call your veterinarian immediately to determine what treatment is necessary and if/when they need to be examined. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful holida y season and is sure to keep an eye on those sneaky garbage thieves to keep them healthy!
