Lady had become a part of the family, but when she was hit by a car in June, the family was faced with a tough decision. Amputation of the broken leg would give Lady a second chance at life, but the cost of the surgery was an unexpected blow to the client, who has been retired for ten years and did not have the funds required to support the full cost of the surgery.

With financial assistance provided by the Angel Fund, Dr. Mike performed this surgery in hopes this will save Kovu's eye down the road.
Here's Grady! As an 8-month-old Australian Shepherd, he came in for a sick visit, exhibiting symptoms of gastrointestinal distress. An examination and radiographs suggested he had a foreign object in his intestine, which required surgery to remove. Fortunately, the Angel Fund was able to subsidize the cost of the surgery, during which Dr. Mike pulled out this SOCK!
Peaches is the sweetest kitty who, at the young age of two years old, had an unfortunate encounter with a wild animal. Sadly, due to the mauling, she lost her right arm and developed a severe infection.

The assistance of the Angel Fund has allowed her wonderful owners to save her and care for her every step of the way in this journey!
