Just another happy puppy! But Gummy Bear didn’t always look this way. Gummy Bear was abandoned on the streets at the advanced age of 8. She was pregnant, malnourished, had heartworm, a skin condition and rotted teeth. She was transported to the shelter. Once clean and safe and warm, with her injuries treated, she became a wonderful mother to her puppies and blossomed into a sweet and joyful dog. With a lot of love and a little training by our dedicated staff, Gummy Bear learned how to walk on a leash, obey basic commands, and most importantly, how to trust people. Gummy Bear and her puppies were all adopted into loving forever homes. Today, thanks to people like you, Gummy Bear’s only concern is which couch to sleep on!
Every year, thousands of lost or abandoned animals with stories like Gummy Bear’s come through our doors looking for their forever homes.
With your help, animals like Gummy Bear will soon have modern medical treatment facilities for necessary care, sunlit rooms to play in and space to socialize while they wait to be adopted or reclaimed by their families. Adopters will have large and homey rooms to meet and greet potential new family members.
Your gift to the campaign will:
• Increase adoptions (approximately 1,100 in 2018) and animals served
• Enhance humane education programs to reach more children and adults
• Provide an expanded veterinary area with an in-house x-ray allowing for faster treatment
and cost savings
