We are celebrating a milestone, our 2,500th life saved!
Meet Charlie, an adorable 5 year old Terrier mix. Recently, Charlie began to show signs of illness. Her family brought her to the vet where she was diagnosed with pyometra, a life-threatening infection of the uterus in unspayed female dogs.
Charlie needed emergency surgery. Her human parents are a senior couple struggling to make ends meet. Charlie’s mom has needed a wheelchair to get around since an accident, and the family credits Charlie with being a key element of her rehabilitation.
“I honestly credit Charlie with saving my wife’s life. Though she is still wheelchair bound, Charlie helped get her through this tough time. Charlie is always by her side,” reports Charlie’s dad.
Thanks to donations from our friends and supporters, Charlie’s vets at VCA Animal Medical Center of El Cajon were able to provide her with the life-saving treatment she needed.
Thank you to all our friends and veterinary partners for making this milestone possible!
