MCHS is surrounded by 25,000 square miles of reservation which is over run with unwanted pets. We have a high intake of homeless animals and we see a lot of neglect cases, illness and injuries. We would love to be able to help more of these tough cases, but we don't always have the funds to do it. It would be so helpful to have some money set aside for helping these needy animals that just need a little extra care to become wonderful loving pets.
We get many animals with broken legs, some can be repaired, but have to be amputated because they have been left untreated for so long before we get them. We had one small puppy come into the shetler with a broken jaw and had rotten pieces of bone inside her mouth including infection. While recovering from that she got mange and then kennel cough. She has fully recovered and is now in a loving home. Animal control picked up one dog that had a piece of wire wrapped so tightly around his back leg that the leg had began to die, the leg had to be amputated and he is now in a loving home.
Please help us continue to help these deserving animals get treatment and finally experiencewhat it is like to have a loving family.
