everyone better get their fundraising shirts on..i accidently took in 5 new animals today and most of them are going to need vet care.
ooops..not my fault, they came in waves.
the first two I approved yesterday...an unclaimed stray, little, old, skinny, sick dog found at a truck stop along the hwy and a one eye senior old unclaimed stray cat with some health problems who has been sitting in the shelter system for several months with zero adoption interest in him.
today I was working when the vets office called..someone had come in to euth their senior cat and dog because they were moving. I was close by so I went over to the clinic to talk to the owners and they said they were not taking either of those animals home again today. the cat is a 16-ish himmy x has been vomiting daily for the past 6 months so shestayed at the clinic for exam, trim of overgrown nails and blood work. the dog is a Japanese chin cross...super cute..11 yrs old, has skin issues, is not spayed, also had over grown nails, smelled pretty bad. she too stayed in for an exam, nail trim, ear pluck, a bath and blood work. both of them came home with me tonight..the cat's name is me-su (it was mew< blah.) and the dog's name is tippy.
the last one is getting added on to the transport of the first two...a 12 yr old blind unclaimed stray siamese cat. I don't know the names of the shelter guys yet..will find out what the staff named them tomorrow when they arrive.
I called our staff and we have a plan on in which area each one should initially go.
sigh..ok...that's a lot of new ones in recently...we are full again for at least a little while.
sucks to be an elderly animal without a family.
