(AKA Penny) Success Story
little girl was dropped off in our After Hours Emergency Pen with no owner information.
We didn't even have a name to call her. The kennel staff dubbed her "Biscuit".
Perfect name for her because she loves dog biscuits. Biscuit is a 6 year old,
Female Red Miniature Pincher who had a prolapsed eye. We sent her down to the
vets to undergo eye surgery and have her eye removed. Thanks goes out to so many
wonderful caring people who donated money to help pay for her surgery. On September
29, 2010 Biscuit now known as "Penny"found a new mommy by the name of
Bonnie who loves her to pieces. I am happy to say that Penny was a lucky little
girl, upon being spayed the Dr. had found a severe infection that would have killed
her if not found within a short period of time. Penny is on meds and doing very
good and has adapted very well to her new home.
below is Angel. Angel came into the Humane Society of Carroll County on December
5th, 2009 in very bad condition. When she got to our shelter we sent her to Airpark
Animal Hospital immediately to get looked at. She had open scabs along her face
and legs and was missing hair all over her body. She appeared to be very young
because of her size and we were unable to tell what breed she was because she
was in such bad condition. Once we sent her to Airpark Animal Hospital they guessed
that she was about one year old and they believed she was a Husky/Chow Mix. Because
of her lack of nutrition she was very small and in bad shape. The vet diagnosed
that Angel had Demodectic Mange. This mange is not contagious to other animals
or people, but it is a timely and pricey thing to cure. Angel needed several treatments
before she would be healed. The two pictures below are Angel when she first arrived
at our shelter. As you can see she was in very bad condition.
Angel's first treatment at Airpark Animal Hospital she started to improve rapidly.
Her scabs were beginning to heal and her hair was also starting to grow back.
After keeping her on a steady and nutritious diet she also began to gain weight
and grow more. Angel was a very sweet and loving dog from the day she arrived
at our shelter. Below is a picture of Angel after her first week at the shelter
and after her first treatment for her mange.
Angel had her third treatment from Airpark Animal Hospital we put her up for adoption.
We made it known to any person who was interested in adopting Angel that we would
pay for Angel's next treatment and help out as much as possible. The family would
have to continue to get her treatments until Airpark Animal Hospital didn't find
anymore skin mites on Angel. Angel was up for adoption for about 3 weeks until
she found her forever home. Below is Angel's adoption picture and three week treatment
update picture. WHAT A CHANGE!
next picture is Angel on her adoption day. Look how happy she is to have found
an amazing family and home!
Hollenback family decided to adopt Angel on January 23, 2010. They are a very
nice family who have been working with Angel to train her and help her become
an amazing dog. They have 2 kids that Angel gets along great with! Angel went
to an amazing home and looks 100% better. We are all happy for Angel and thank
the Hollenback Family for there devoted time and love to help an amazing animal
like Angel. Below is Angel with the Hollenback Family and what she looks like
