    Story

    “My old life was very scary. I used to have a family (I was neutered so someone once took care of me) but was now on my own in a small town. There wasn’t very much food so I had to rummage though garbage bags to find scraps to eat. People would yell and threaten me but I didn’t mean to make them mad; I was just hungry. One day someone called AARCS and told them to come and get me before something bad happened. I don’t think they realized they had just saved my life.

    AARCS did a medical exam on me when I arrived and it turns out I am pretty sick. I have hyperthyroidism and kidney disease. I also had some broken and missing teeth. The vet clinic has been taking good care of me though. I had my teeth fixed and am on lots of different medications to regulate my thyroid and kidneys. I have pills and powders and even injections. They must be working because I am gaining weight and my hair is growing back. I am going to have to be on medication for the rest of my life but it’s OK because I have a good life now.

    One of the volunteers took me home to live with her family. I have a warm bed and get my own bowls of food and water. The best part though is that I am safe and loved.”
