What a difference love makes
CHESTER HAS BEEN RESCUED!
VHS has a slogan: Let the Love Begin. Today that statement is lifesaving for Chester who has spent an entire decade in a family who outright stated that the ‘hated that dog,” and they were going to kill him.
Their declarations were not hard to believe when we saw the shape he was in. The poor guy was so incredibly matted, he struggled to move or even open his mouth wide enough to complain. His toenails grew round and under his feet, (imagine trying to walk). It was impossible to brush out his coat – it was so painfully matted, he had to be sedated and shaved by a veterinarian. And when they checked his teeth, some were so bad they fell out!
LIFE IS GOOD now though! Chester is in a wonderful foster home with people who will let him take the time he needs to understand that he is now very much loved and we will do everything in our power to make sure he never hurts emotionally or physically again. He is responding so well – isn’t the resiliency of dogs amazing!
And thanks to our amazing 50/50 players and donors, there was no hesitation in taking on a dog who could potentially have so many health issues. The money raised through the monthly 50/50 is all allocated to the emergency medical fund.
Thank you for playing and making a difference.
Will you play again? Get your tickets and ask your friends and family to play along.
THANK YOU from Chester and the many other dogs and cats, puppies and kittens that will be helped by your contribution.
