"Pregnant cat" has a different secret

Remember Penelope, the "pregnant cat" abandoned at our shelter near the end of September?

After a few weeks with no changes and no kittens, Penelope was re-evaluated by our Hope Clinic team. Although she still appeared pregnant, we knew something wasn't right. Her lymph nodes were swollen and enlarged, so a biopsy procedure was performed in order to figure out the cause.

Sadly, our blue-eyed beauty has been diagnosed with lymphoma.

Boxer puppy found abandoned with parvo

On September 22, 2017 at 2:28pm, a sick boxer puppy was found abandoned in Adrian. The puppy was severely underweight, lethargic, and dehydrated. We feared the worst and immediately ran a test for parvovirus. The postive result quickly confirmed our fears.

Kitten struggles to fight deadly virus

Around 11:00am on September 21, 2017, a kitten named Cheerio was vomiting, had severe diarrhea, and was extremely lethargic. He was showing signs of feline panleukopenia, also known as feline parvovirus, a deadly virus that quickly attacks the intestines, bone marrow, and lymph nodes. 

Pregnant cat abandoned in parking lot

 At 8:11am on September 21, 2017, a young woman driving a blue Ford Focus pulled into our parking lot, retrieved a cat in a partially packaged live trap from her back seat, and attempted to enter our building. When she realized we were not open yet, she stuffed the trapped cat halfway inside of a dog house in front of our shelter, facing the busy road. 

Mulberry: Tiny Yet Mighty

Mulberry was found all alone in Blissfield - with no mother, no litter mates, and almost no hope. We feared the worst. Not only is this four week old kitten suffering from a severe upper respiratory infection, she's extremely underweight, covered in lice, and has a corneal ulcer due to a severe infection in her left eye. Without help, we have no doubt she would have died on her own.

Hedwig's Final Days

It is with great sadness, heavy hearts and lots of tears that we share Hedwig's final update. 

Hedwig had an amazing weekend at home with our clinic manager and vet tech, Erica. He made new four-legged friends, including cows and other dogs, soaked up as much sunshine as possible, and couldn't stop wagging his tail. He was happy couldn't help but show it. 

Senior basset hound arrives at shelter close to death

This 15-16 year old basset hound was found July 26, 2017 near Beecher/Posey Lake Hwy. in Clayton. We're calling him "Hedwig."

He's in awful shape. Severely underweight, dehydrated, lethargic, infected ears and teeth, and painfully long nails (which we trimmed before we even thought of taking pictures). Our Hope Clinic team is afraid he may fall victim to kidney failure due to his severe dehydration and terrible condition.

Dave: The Bald & The Beautiful

Several days ago a kitten was found in rough shape in Wendy's parking lot in Tecumseh. His left eye was inflamed and he was covered in fleas and botfly larvae. Our Hope Clinic team worked on removing the parasites and larvae but soon realized the infestation was much worse than we first realized.

Margaret: Left For Dead

On July 14, 2017, a tiny black kitten was found near the highway, alone and severely injured. As our Hope Clinic team examined her, the amount of damage this kitten had endured was alarming. Her tail had been sheared completely off and she was covered in scrapes and other injuries, possibly by being tossed out of a moving car.
