13 Days of Gratitude | Grace

Grace, a German Shorthaired Pointer female stray, was found in 2014, abandoned on Maitland Road.


When she came to stay with us in 2014, Grace and her daughter Sadie were both emaciated. Grace suffered from a number of skin conditions, mange being one of them.

Above routine veterinarian costs to care for Grace’s skin issues added up to around $450.00 in daily care and veterinarian bills with prescriptions, skin tests, and weekly prescription baths, along with a diet of specialty food.

Oftentimes, the stray and abandoned animals we take in suffer from mange and similar skin conditions. The only way we can provide the above and beyond care for these guests is to receive additional donations from businesses and individuals. As a no-kill shelter, our heart is always on the side of these future pets, but to continue, we must often ask for additional donations.

And because we received additional donations through the kindness and generosity of some of you, we were able to provide for Grace’s specific issues.

Grace was successfully adopted and you can read her full story in our 2016 calendar, available mid-December.


Would you like to give a dog like Grace a furever home with your family? We’d love to introduce you to our current guests this holiday season. Stop by our shelter anytime during our normal business hours.
