Hi there,

Just wanted to send an update. We adopted "Hershel" from you July 15th (he is now called Monte). He is still awesome and we love him so much.
We are working with different supplements and essential oils to help with his skin issues and also for his hip/arthritis issues as well. So far we have seen some improvement which is encouraging. My husband built him a ramp that leads up to his very own custom made (orthopedic) little bed which is right next to our bed - he just loves it. Jim also built a couple ramps for the outdoor stairs to make life easier for our little guy. We are still having some difficulty with grooming and car rides but we are working on those things - getting slightly better all the time. Here are a couple pics of Mr. Monte that were taken over the last couple months.

I hope you are all having a good day and week at the shelter.

Hi! I'm just forwarding a couple pics of Snickers (formerly known as Sailor
Moon). She's doing great and got a clean bill of health from vet :)
Thank you for all you do!!

Hi there. Well we have had our lil Monte for three weeks and 3 days now and it's hard to imagine life without him!

Attached is a pic taken after his first trip to the groomers. That didn't go so well, they couldn't complete the session as he was too aggressive. They did give him a little tie afterwards though! Lol. We are working out a few issues but generally he is still pretty darn awesome!

Have a great day!
