Contribute to our EMERGENCY SURGERY FUND and make a difference for animals like Gidget. Gidget was found running on M-30 and was brought to the shelter as a very sick little stray. We quickly had her examined and discovered she had Pyometria; a severe infection of the uterus. This disease is most often seen in middle aged female dogs that have not been spayed. Hormonal abnormalities and a bacterial infection can lead to toxicity and must be treated quickly. The clock was ticking. Gidget was fortunate that the next day we were taking animals to the spay/neuter clinic being offered by recent MSU graduates in Houghton Lake. Gidget was spayed and placed on antibiotics. This story has a “fairy tale” ending with this sweet little girl being adopted by a wonderful local family who fell in love with her on sight. If not for timing of the clinic…Gidget would not have been so lucky.
Please consider making a donation to this important fund to help dogs and cats that come to the shelter with emergency medical needs. Thank You!
