Adele Needs Guardian Angel Care
Thursday, 07 March 2013

Update on 3/29/2013: A picture is worth a thousand words! You can see pretty Adele is healing nicely and has a whole new look.

 

She is so grateful for your support and the Guardian Angels who helped give her a second chance.

 

Original post:

 

Adele is a french bulldog mix that was turned in to Dallas Animal Services and they asked for a rescue group to help her. This 3 year old weighs 39.8 pounds, a short and curvy kind of gal!

 

She was attacked by another dog -- as well as maced (by someone trying to break up the fight?)! She has a large laceration on her left axilla which was cleaned and sutured with a drain tube installed. She also has an injury to the carilage in her right ear. It appears that the ear had been pulled away from the head, causing cartilage damage, which will most likely require surgery to repair. It is seriously infected, so this is the focus of her initial care.

 

Adele is a really sweet girl, submissive and adorable! She just needs some help to get through all of this. She is ready to get healed and put the past behind her!

 

She is resting comfortably, but would love a Guardian Angel or two so she can have all the best care available.

Guardian Angels for Elton
Tuesday, 26 February 2013

Update on 3/29/2013: Sweet Elton is such a brave and patient little guy. He had his leg set, with the hope it would heal. Today's xrays show it is not healing, so the vet has reset it and we wait another two weeks to see what will be.

 

Thanks to everyone for supporting this brave little guy!!!

 

Original post:

 

This is Elton. This sweet little guy was turned in to animal services after he was attacked by a larger dog and suffered serious bite wounds to his abdomen and his legs. We answered their appeal for rescue and have taken this 8 month old pup into our care.

 

Elton visited the vet yesterday and xrays are showing his body did not sustain the worst of the damage. His leg is broken in three places, possibly impossible to repair. A second opinion will determine treatment.

 

Meanwhile he is resting comfortably with our Shelter Director.

 

Elton (so named because of his hairdo!) could sure use a Guardian Angel. Will you help?

 
Discount Drug Card Program Benefiting Animal Shelters
Friday, 01 February 2013

Thanks to the efforts of one company, Stanton Health, humane animal shelters are receiving regular charitable donations to help defray costs. HSDC is one of the beneficiaries.

 

AxiaRX is a free prescription program available to Dallas Metroplex residents. It is a discount prescription card that can save an average 49% off prescription drugs so can certainly help anyone with high cost prescription costs.

 

Simply download and print the Humane Card and show it at the many area participating pharmacies. Visit DallasCountyRX.com for more information and the pharmacy nearest you.

 

Every time the card is used, you save money on your prescriptions and a donation is made to our shelter. An added benefit: the card covers many pet prescriptions too.

Pet Education Events
Tuesday, 08 January 2013

HSDC is proud to announce two phenomenal pet education opportunities happening later this month, both sponsored by our friends at Park Cities Pet Sitter.

 

The first is a cat and dog behavior workshop given by renowned behaviorist Arden Moore on Saturday, January 26th from 11:30am-1:30pm at the Ridgewood-Belcher Recreation Center. During this informative and entertaining session, you will learn things like: how to read cat and dog body language, how to handle different dog and cat behavior problems, how to manage overly excited dogs, mixing a new cat or dog with current pets, what to do when your cat or dog is having inappropriate "pee" problems--and many other extremely useful tidbits to enhance your relationship with your pets. In addition you will get to meet Zeki, the famous cat, get a goody bag, and have the chance to win exciting door prizes!

 

The second is a Pet Tech First Aid and CPR Certification Class, put on by Master Trainer Arden Moore, with assistance from her amazing cat Zeki. The first class, on Friday, January 25th, has already filled up, so there is a second class that is now being offered on Thursday, January 24th, from 9:30am-3:30pm at the SPCA of Texas. Among the hands-on skills you will learn in her all-inclusive First Aid and CPR certification class include choking management, rescue breathing, three different pet CPR techniques, bleeding protocols, heat and cold-related injuries, and snout-to-tail assessment (wellness and injury). You will also learn preventative care that can save you money, and discover what surprising items must be included in your first aid kit. Added topics covered in this comprehensive course: dental care, nutrition, behavior and caring for senior pets.

Educating our community about cat and dog behavior and wellness is a priority for HSDC, so we hope you will sign up to attend one or both events. Please click on this link to sign up or get additional information about either event: pcpsi.com/events.
