One of our wonderful foster homes went to Brenham Animal Services to volunteer and bring some donations. While she was there she met this beautiful dog named Stella. Poor Stella had some tumors on her side and belly, she was heart worm positive and she’s not a young dog so her chances for adoption were non existent. Shelli took pictures and together we tried to network for a foster home. Shelli already has a house full of pets and knew it would be a challenge to take her home but when nobody offered to foster or adopt Stella she decided to go back and get her and do the rehabilitation so she’d be healthy and have a better chance of being adopted.
Here’s Stella now. She’s spayed, on heart worm treatment and her tumors have been removed. As soon as we get the results of the biopsies and she’s fully healed she’ll go up for adoption. Thank you for saving a life Shelli. This may not make a difference for all the dogs but for this one dog, it made ALL the difference. Save a life, foster or adopt.
UPDATE: Stella’s tumors were benign except one and Dr. Philips got all of that one out so she is cancer free and will go up for adoption soon!!
