MCHS' goal: Finding forever homes for all animals

(Continued)

ANDERSON, Ind. —

Two happy endings. Annie the terribly sad chocolate Labrador that was surrendered by her owner because of his health reasons, found a fabulous home in three days. She is living with another chocolate Labrador and is so happy. Scooby, who was returned to us after eight years was not able to cope with shelter life. The staff put a plea out on Facebook. The day of the Facebook posting a doctor and his wife from Bloomington called and wanted to adopt him. Before he was adopted it was discovered that he had heartworm. The doctor contacted his friends at the Veterinary School at Purdue and they had a plan of treatment. Scooby is now living with five brother and sister dogs on a beautiful farm in Brown County

Please keep your dogs on heartworm preventative. Have your dogs tested either at your Veterinarian or at the MCHS for ten dollars on the third Saturday of every month. Your alternative for not protecting your dog from this deadly disease is either a dead dog or six hundred to a thousand dollars in treatment costs.

Susie Schieve is the Director of the Madison County Humane Society, 2219 Crystal St. sydneyschieve@aol.com or 765-215-8235
