Update on Soldier

Hello again!

I have some not so good news for dear Soldier. He was groomed today and checked over again by the vet and he is not gaining weight. The vet shaved him because his hair was so matted and there are lumps all over his body. At this point it is unknown if they are cancerous or not. We were also recommended a different brand of senior dog food that would encourage him to eat more, so we are going to try that and see how it goes.

The poor thing must have been a beautiful dog in his day. I will send some pictures in a few days of him now that he is shaved. That way he doesn't have the freshly shaven look to him. hehe.

Thank you so much for your sponsorship! It has allowed Soldier to live the rest of his life in peace and comfort.

Thank you again for everything!

Old Soldier

When I saw this sweet old dog with the sad eyes today on Petfinder, I just knew we had to help him. I called to get more information and we are sending a donation to sponsor him for his ongoing care. I hope to have updated photos soon. Thanks to this small organization for caring about an old dog that was definitely down on his luck.

English Setter
Size: Medium
Age: Senior
Sex: Male
ID: 1001

Soldier lived outside with a man that could not keep him. The Rural Iowa Animal Rescue took Soldier in and he is now living in a volunteer home. Soldier has always been an outside dog and is currently living outside in a heated barn. He is a 15 year old English Setter that could use a haircut! Soldier only has a few teeth left and is mostly deaf. He was used for breeding, and due to his age it is not safe to neuter him now. Soldier is very sweet and does excellent with other cats, dogs, and kids.

Soldier will need a home that can keep him in a heated shed or barn and will be able to provide him the proper care for a dog his age. Soldier is in need of sponsers to help pay for his grooming bill as well as for his special senior dog food. He is also on joint supplements. Soldier's adoption fee is $55. Please email for more information or an application!

This pet is up to date with routine shots.

Merry Christmas in your new home, Sno Ball!

A very happy ending for Sno Ball

I just received this great news; I'll try to get copies of the photos:

Just to let you know that Sno Ball went to her new and awesome home in Duluth yesterday. Her new Mom has a huge heart for rescue and Sno will have the best there is to offer. Already have photos of her in her new home with her roomie who is going blind and has some deformed limbs.

Thanks for sending her photo along. Another happy ending.

Sno Ball

Of course I am always sad to see a post like this for a senior animal on Petfinder. I hope I can help find a new situation; I suggested Home for Life.

Sno Ball is a senior cat who is in a rescue that is closing. She was born blind and needs a special home. She is accustomed to cats and dogs. She does have a difficult time staying oriented when picked up. Needs a warm spot in a home where it will not matter if she misses the litter pan, as this does happen. Perhaps a more restricted area would be helpful. A beauty of a girl, she will also benefit from gentle brushing to keep her gorgeous white coat free from matting. A little metamucil on her food will help with furballs as well.

Sno Ball is currently fostered in Pepin, WI. Please contact Kandi at 715-442-5301
