Helping others

I offer my time and professional skills to animals in need of rehabilitation for rehoming. I volunteer at local shelters to instruct others in handling of dogs and make them more adoptable.

Animals listed here will be known to me or courtesy posts of reputable rescues.

At a recent occurrence of dog-dumping at a local shelter, I volunteered my professional skills to care for the dogs through assessment, socialization, vet care, and interviewing potential foster homes.
The dogs are under-socialized, some have medical concerns, all are intact and many are extremely fearful.

Buddy (2005-2015)

Breed: English Springer Spaniel
Colour: Black and white
Age: Adult (approx 10 yrs)
Sex: Male neutered
Health: General health is good.
History: He was taken to a local shelter as a stray. Suffering from an aggressive pseudomonas aeruginosa bacterial infection in one ear, he has been on a regular veterinary regimen to fight this nasty condition.

He is now very happy that his pain has lessened. He is very reactive to treatment of his ear and it has become necessary to have him put under anesthetic to clean his ear and groom.

This dog will likely be a "forever foster".
