This little sweetheart is Happy. Look at that face!
This little 13 pound wheaten terrier collided with a car, and he got the worst of it. He was turned in to Animal Services for help. He couldn't put pressure on his hind quarters and had some open wounds and road rash, so they suspected pelvic injuries, and sent out an appeal for a rescue.
We rushed him to the vet and miraculously, no broken bones but severe internal bruising, abdominal wounds and external derma-abrasions, requiring careful attention against infection and debriding to insure healing.
Happy has exhibited an amazing demeanor through his pain .... and might not exactly live up to that name right now, but it is definitely in his personality. What will help make him happier right now is a Guardian Angel who will help us help him.
On Saturday, August 24th, Morgan and Asena celebrated their 8th birthdays at a joint party with friends and family. In lieu of presents, they asked everyone to bring a donation for Dog & Kitty City animals.
After the party, the girls visited the shelter to drop off a wonderful array of gifts for our furry friends. They also had a tour and a chance to visit with the animals.
A great big HSDC thank you to these junior volunteers who stepped up to help the animals!
Park Cities Pet Sitter is sponsoring a program to benefit Dog and Kitty City. They will create specific events to promote this donation drive. Stay tuned for event updates!
Park Cities Pet Sitter, Inc. is joining forces with the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) for the “Presents 4 Pets” campaign, a money and supply collection drive to benefit the shelter animal community. This national program coincides with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, observed November 3-9, 2013. As part of this annual program, Park Cities Pet Sitter and other NAPPS members across the country will be reaching out to their clients and sponsoring local events to encourage people to donate money and products for this worthy cause. Items such as food, toys, treats, blankets, towels, rugs, beds, bleach, leashes, collars, cat traps, and gift cards will be solicited during this initiative.
“This is a great opportunity for all pet lovers to help the neediest animals in our community,” commented Joette White, President of Park Cities Pet Sitter. “We hope through our participation in Presents 4 Pets that we will generate awareness for our community shelters, as well as highlight the social responsibility we all have to successfully manage the overall population and placement of companion animals that need homes.”
Ms. White said she is especially excited that her company’s efforts will benefit two local organizations that are staunchly committed to making a difference in the Dallas community; the Humane Society of Dallas County and Big Fix for Big D.
