We are so grateful to Coulee Region Humane Society for the profoundly important work done to help pets in our community. A very kind, very anxious man came in to reclaim his darling emotional support pup, Buster. There were a few obstacles relating to housing requirements and the dog’s unneutered condition. Staff at CRHS pulled together available resources (including ours!) and this dog is back home, licensed, vaccinated, and has a plan to be neutered.

Marcus is a very lively 10 month old shepherd. Lively Marcus has shallow sockets in his hip joints. So, lively Marcus dislocates his hips too often.

The only struggle is keeping his activity restricted since, the better he feels, the more he wants to go.
Arthur was having trouble breathing. Soon his nose was swelling, he was hiding, and not eating very well. Carrie got her sweet cat to the vet, who found nasal polyps.

Leanne knew something was very wrong with her 16 year old sweetie cat, Leo. With information about blood work, Leanne made the heart-breaking decision to have Leo euthanized. All of you know how difficult this is. Getting to the vet earlier may not have saved Leo but we always want to get pets the care they need as soon as possible, in the hope that early care can make a difference. Our hearts go out to Leanne.

Starburst likes to jump. Starburst is a 10 year old dog who maybe should slow down on his jumping. Sure enough, he jumped off the bed, landed badly and his person, Patrick, suspected a dislocated shoulder. The vet found luxating patella, and with some care, Starbust has improved. Patrick says that Starburst is a persistent guy, and will jump down from furniture without help. Pet steps are on the way for this lively dog.
