Animal Samaritans is proud to report the rescue of 1,561 dogs and cats from our Desert’s local public animal shelters over the course of the year. While all the dogs and cats were adoptable, some required a little extra attention, like time socializing with foster parents, or medical care to repair the harm done from injury and neglect.
In just the last two weeks we rescued a loving little terrier with a lame leg, and a four-month old puppy with head trama. Thanks to your donations to our Adoption Alliance program, our doctors were able to perform surgery on the dogs and give them a second chance at life.
Last week we also sent another German shepherd to our rescue partners in Michigan.
During the first two weeks of December, four litters of unwanted puppies were brought into local public shelters. Sadly, we couldn’t save them all.
This is a reminder to spay & neuter our pets; if you have friends or neighbors who have unfixed pets and you would like to nudge them spay & neuter their animals, buy them Critter Cash from Animal Samaritans, which they can use for veterinary services–same as cash–at our clinic.
Animal Samaritans’ animal shelter and veterinary clinic will close at 12 noon on Tuesday, December 24, and remain closed through Christmas Day, December 25. We will also be closed on Tuesday, January 1.
