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.

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

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.
