Wow! Busy times!

We had a little dog nearly mauled to death by two big dogs. One of the Jennifers on our board happened to see the big dogs attack! Though she is not very big she has a big voice! She yelled at the dogs to let go and they did! She called me to evaluate his wounds and it was clear he needed immediate attention. Little Perro looks like a mini pitbull. So cute, sweet and funny!  He was dumped a while back, fully vetted and healthy, just a little thin. After he was mauled he spent a night at the vet hospital and came into foster care with drains in a deep bite on his right flank. It didn't slow him down for long! Last week I removed the sutures that were required after the drains were removed. He is still in foster care and doing well.

Kittens, kittens, kittens!!  We had to purchase more traps (donations are more than welcome!) for all of the feral kittens we have to catch! Between Dixon and Velarde we have 4 sites!  We are so grateful for the help from local residents in trapping and feeding all of these babies. One litter is already adopted! The mom, though feral, is very sweet and calm. We believe she was a house cat that ran off. We are looking to find her previous owner before putting her up for adoption.  The other litters are feral and will go to the shelter for socializing, shots and spay/neuter. From there they will either be adopted out as pets or barn cats depending on temperament.

 just a note that this photo is not sideways, the kitten is!
