Heinie

September 25, 2019

Chronic ear infections plagued Heinie, a pug, for most of his ten years. The usual treatments with cleaning and medication weren’t enough and surgery was the next step. Heinie’s damaged ear canal was removed by a specialist. He also had some excess soft palate removed from his mouth so he could breathe more easily

Hugo

Hugo, an elegant black cat, was surrendered to the SPCA.  Unfortunately, he had eaten at least two elastic hair bands which became entangled in his stomach and required surgery to remove them.

Asia

Asia is a lively young Pomeranian who unfortunately found and ate a chicken bone. Asia began vomiting and it was discovered that the bone was stuck in her throat and had to be removed.

Winston

Winston, a handsome older tom cat, arrived at the Abbotsford SPCA with a neck wound that would not heal. As he was unclaimed, he was neutered and microchipped, then moved to the Vancouver shelter to increase his chances for adoption.  Due to the size and location of the wound, he required surgery and powerful antibiotics

Chenelle

Chenelle is a twelve-year-old female Lab who enjoys playing and swimming.  She is much loved by her guardian who is on disability and was unable to pay for extensive dental work as well as surgery to remove a growth around her eye.  The Trust enabled Chenelle to get the help she needed

Cooper

September 24, 2019

Cooper’s medical record lists more than half a dozen surgeries, two requiring the expertise of a specialist. Thankfully, he was adopted by a kind-hearted veterinarian with the knowledge and ability to care for him and manage his lifelong specialized needs. The Trust helped immensely and without this assistance his outcome would have been much different.
