A Lifesaving Story
Mollie arrived at WHS, we weren't sure she
would make it. She had Parvovirus, which can
be a death sentence for puppies.
When her paws
hit the pavement last week, she could hardly contain
herself. With her backside tucked under in the wild
puppy posture, she sprinted back and forth on the
grass, zigzagging and chasing her tail with pure
unfettered glee. It was clear from the glimmer in
her soft brown eyes; Mollie was thrilled to be alive.
But her young
life hasn't always been so pleasant. When she arrived
at the Wisconsin Humane Society, we weren't sure
Mollie was going to survive - she had parvovirus
signs including severe, blood-filled diarrhea. Parvo
can be a death sentence for puppies like Mollie.
She was dehydrated
and lethargic. She was just a baby - only four months
old - and her life was quickly leaving her.
Not only did
she receive treatment for her virus at WHS, but
also for a cold she developed because of her weakened
immune system. With diligent, lifesaving medical
treatment and a whole lot of loving care, Mollie
pulled through. Your support helped to make it possible.
Humane Society is funded through the generosity
of caring people like you. We receive no government
funding, no tax dollars and no government grants.
Our lifesaving programs are made possible through
the gifts of people in our community and beyond
who believe in the work we do to save the lives
of wild and companion animals.
We hope you will make
a gift today so that other animals like Mollie
can live to enjoy warm summer afternoons for years
to come. We will use your gift to provide animals
with lifesaving medical care, spay and neuter, nutritious
food, a comfortable bed and more. Beyond that, your
gift enables us to work to build a kinder, more
humane community from which we all benefit.
On behalf of
Mollie, our St. Bernard/Collie mix who has been
adopted into a loving, long-term home and will now
grow to be a big, beautiful dog, thank you for considering
a gift to the Wisconsin Humane Society. With the
financial support of folks like you, we can continue
to save the lives of animals.
