Animal Aid provides veterinary care for pets in our surrounding area when owners cannot afford to help them. Our hospital is owned by a non-profit organization the Animal Aid Foundation. We take referrals from surrounding counties and south Georgia and are becoming overwhelmed with the need. So many pets and animals have. Today January 14, Babycakes a much loved yorkie was presented (by a Florida State University graduate student who is working on her masters degree on her own) with vomiting and bloody diarrhea and dehydration. Babycakes desperately needed treatment which we provided. We have recieved no payment for labwork and medication.
Yoshi, a schnoodle tried to deliver an oversize puppy that could not fit through the birth canal after being in labor for hours. Our doctors performed emergency surgery to give Yoshi relief and save her life.
Lana, a young tiny puppy was brought in to be euthanized she was so anemic. The owner was heart broken but had no way to help her. We have given her a blood transfusion and hoping on a postive recovery. Lana is also looking for a forver home.
Two sweet cats, Pumpkin and Weasley, were presented to us on January 16th with swollen paws and critical tempatures over 105 degrees. The owner who is a single mother with two kids was unsure what happened as the cats had snuck out of the house. We believe the bites were caused by a snake. After hours of diligent work from our doctors, they are both recovering at home.
Our homeless puppy Ben was found wandering by himself on the side of the road. We have taken him in and gave him all his vaccinations. Ben continues to wait for a new home.
A sweet pitbull named Rock was brought to us with a broken leg. He snuck out of the house and was found after 2 days with a badly broken leg injury. Our doctors have been working and monitoring his progress to help save his leg.
Majority of these cases were just one morning, we are fighting everyday. The families of these pets were not prepared for the need of catastrophic pet care and large vet bills. We have numerous pets looking for forever homes. And we are fighting hard to continue our mission of provided healthcare and spaying and neutering to help the overpopulation problem. You are welcomed to come and visit, and please help by financially supporting us.
