Margrit Coates, A Special Shelter Visitor
Friday, 20 April 2012

Recently the shelter was visited by a very special guest, Margrit Coates. Margrit is the world's leading animal and horse healer and an internationally renowned animal communicator.

 

She toured the shelter and visited with the animals. Staff had selected some special care cats and dogs for her attention and Margrit worked with these animals, suggesting programs and treatments that could help them. Since her visit, staff reports many of these suggestions were applied and successful for the animals in need.

 

We were honored by her visit and grateful for her attention to our sweet animals.

Robbie's Story: Miracles Happen Because of Our Guardian Angels and Foster Parents
Wednesday, 07 March 2012

It is the HSDC's charter to be a true "no-kill" shelter, regardless of the medical conditions an animal may present when it comes our way. Many animals with long-term and complicated health conditions end up staying in our shelter for most of their lives. But it is always our hope to nurse each animal back to its best possible health condition, and find an appropriate adopter for that animal.

 

Many of our volunteers and visitors may remember one of our saddest cases of a cat with chronic health issues--that of little Robbie. Robbie was found with red, irritated skin, open sores and patches of hair missing around his ears, neck and tail. His eyes were cloudy due to an undiagnosed eye condition. It was clear that he was miserable, constantly scratching and grooming himself until his skin was bloody.

 

HSDC took Robbie to a number of veterinarians, but none were able to diagnose the cause of Robbie's chronic itchiness. So despite his less-than-ideal appearance, we continued to care and love Robbie, and entered him into our guardian angel program--hoping to find someone willing to fund the many veterinarians we were seeing to try to find a diagnosis for his condition.
