It was a tragic day when Turbo, a one year old beagle mix, came into HSDR after being hit by a car. It was obvious that this little guy was in a great deal of pain and his front right leg was broken.
We immediately consulted a specialized orthopedic surgeon and scheduled the complex and costly surgery. Turbo needed to have a plate surgically placed to stabilize the break and allow his bones to heal.
We are very happy to say that Turbo has made a full recovery. During his recovery Turbo stole the hearts of his foster family and it didn't take them long to decide that his foster home would turn into his forever home!
The HSDR medical team jumped into action and started a course of antibiotics to fight the raging infection that riddled Charlie's little body. Once he was stabilized and it was safe to do so, Charlie underwent the intensive surgery to amputate his leg and get him the relief he so badly needed.
After Charlie recovered from the surgery, it took him no time at all to learn to walk on only 3 legs and into the hearts of his forever family.
This holiday season we have a special donor that is offering to match any donation that you give to have twice the impact and save 2x the number of lives.

HSDR is asking for your help to provide our cats and kittens with a new and comfy bed to sleep on this holiday season!
For a donation of $55, you can provide a cat at the shelter with a brand new Kuranda Cat Bed!
Kuranda Cat Beds are a wonderful bed for cats to use during their stay with us at the shelter. When cats come to HSDR, there are so many new smells, sounds and other animals around, that it can be very scary at first. A Kuranda Cat Bed is not only a bed for them to perch and lay on, it also offers a very nice place to hide away and feel secure in the shelter when the bed is covered with a blanket.
These beds fit perfectly in our cages, are very durable and the best part is that they can be washed and disinfected for the next kitty that comes in! When you donate towards a single bed, you are not only giving one cat a new bed for Christmas, you are giving many cats a safe a secure bed and hiding spot for years to come.

Joe is a 7 year old Cane Corso mix, who came to HSDR after jumping out of a second story window. He was rushed to the emergency veterinarian, was given a full body x-ray and was taken to a specialist for a neurological exam. Unfortunately it was determined that Joe’s spine was compressed from the fall and we were unsure if Joe would ever walk or even stand again. Despite the uncertainty we wanted to give him a chance. For the first few weeks he received daily pain medication and had to be carried outside by our staff and volunteers. Eventually through daily physiotherapy, Joe’s strength slowly started to come back. He’s still a little wobbly when he gets excited but his tail is wagging and he’s improving daily. Joe’s veterinary care, medication and specialist fees were expensive and we need your help. Please click HERE to donate and support Joe.
