NorSled has been around for over 20 years, and has adopted out over 3,000 dogs. In 2019 alone, we have helped over 150 dogs from shelters throughout Northern California. Some of these shelters have no vet staff, some only part-time staff - all very overworked. The only hope for many of the dogs in these shelters is rescue. Here are just a few of the dogs NorSled helped this year:
- with severe demodex and depression from the pain, who has completely recovered and today has a beautiful coat and great personality - now in a foster-to-adopt-home!
- 1-year-old, found abandoned on the streets, blind from glaucoma, having just delivered puppies (we have no idea what happened to the puppies) We had the eyes removed to stop the excruciating pain, and worked to help her to trust humans again.
- 6-month-old puppy, hit by a car - surrendered to a shelter. The shelter immediately realized he needed care beyond what they could provide, and contacted NorSled. We rushed him to the emergency vet to get him stabilized and determine what could be done. While one leg had 2 bones broken, the orthopedic vet thought they could save it. NorSled paid for the surgery, and Canyon is recovering well in a foster home today.
Thank you to all NorSled Volunteers who help the dogs through, fostering, fund raising, dog walking, working adoption fairs, answering the phone calls, managing the website, et al.
And a special thanks to all who donate - without funds, we cannot do the work the dogs need.
You all are the ones who make NorSled possible.
