July 2017

Maddie was surrendered to the shelter with another dog. It soon became apparent that she could not walk properly. She had a severe ear infection, facial degeneration, and lesions on her spine. The vet estimated a 6-month life expectancy. After an ear ablation, one of the HSoMC staff members adopted Maddie and took her to live out her last days.

This was almost four years ago. Maddie still experiences the effects of the lesions on her spine (muscle tightening, muscle atrophy, and decrease in coordination), but the sweet pup is a loving member of the family. Maddie loves to eat, meander about the dog park, and snuggle up with new foster animals. 

Thank you for your support. It allows us to take care of special cases like Maddie.
