Lucky Lady is an 8 year old  Australian Cattle dog x
​(Palliative)

Lucky Lady came from North Carolina where she survived the hurricane, then moved from Buffalo to the Welland SPCA in Canada. She was almost adopted when they discovered her belly was full of fluid... maybe cancer, or an enlarged heart. They looked for someone to take her in as a palliative, and found Freedom. Lucky Lady is so full of life, you wouldn’t know there’s anything wrong with her if it weren’t for her swollen belly. She had surgery recently, and we now know she has a very bad case of liver fibrosis. She’s on medication and special diet to keep her condition under control. Lucky Lady is really “Lucky”. Not only is she a hurricane survivor, but she has also pulled off multiple medical plot twists... and now she's REALLY enjoying life, and being spoiled rotten.

Cody came to us when his previous owner had passed away. He is a twelve year old hound, and is a calm, friendly, cuddly fellow. Once you take him outside, this senior has a surprising amount of energy! He loves walking to the park and the beach, and making friends with other dogs there. Cody is being fostered by Alex, and has quickly become Alex's new best friend. Cody follows Alex around the house and often asks for pats with a gentle tap of his paw. He is a really charming and loveable dog, even if he does like to hog the bed [😉]

When he came into care he was timid but was craving love and attention.
It didn't take long for him to make himself right at home and fit in well with all the other dogs and cats.

Storm is a 4 month old Swiss Mountain Dog (Palliative)

Storm came to Freedom from a pound in Quebec where she was surrendered. We were contacted because Storm needed to be rushed to emergency. She was having continous seizures and they thought she had a broken spine or pelvis issues. We rushed straight to picked her up to get her to VCA Canada Alta Vista Animal Hospital where she saw a neurologist (Dr Anne Chauvet). Storm was admitted to the hospital because no-one was sure that she would make it. Not only was something going on neurologically, her back end didn’t work and they realized she had a bad heart.

She had test and treatments done: spinal tap- which confirmed she had meningitis, eosinophilis lab work - negative heart work tests ammonia - negative
Diagnosis:
suspect meningitis, eosinophilic mixed pleocystosis - protozoal, tick borne, parasitic, allergic
cardiac disease/murmur 4/6
Prognosis: this could be due to viral, fungal, guarded for now although we have some control of the seizures now. 
Storm is 100% blind. 
That was what was said at the hospital. Fast forward and Storm had been seizure free for almost a month, is running around and acting like a puppy and her sight is coming back.


PALLIATIVE CARE FOSTERS



Slim Jim is an 10 year old Border Collie x
​(Palliative)

This sweet boy was rescued by one of our amazing supporters and was staying at a local kennel before coming into our care. 
Slim has a mass in his abdomen. 
While Jim is very quiet- He is learning to trust his new surroundings, including his two new doggie Pals, Bowen (an FDR dog from April 2017) and Trooper, as well as his momma & her daughter. In 3 weeks, Jim has shown more character and you can SEE he is happier, truly at ease, and knows that he can lay out, fully stretched on a big bed just for him!!
Jim was neglected, remained outside, tied to a dog house, has no hair on his hind end because of wearing in his house, and he has no muscle mass in his rear legs, not to mention no front teeth at bottom or top from chewing on anything to eat.
Coming into our home, he has learned to walk indoors- with help of carpet runners on the floors, no he cannot do stairs- so I have moved my entire basement rec-room to the main floor now! He LOVES his daily walks, meeting new people, and when they hear of Jim’s story and FDR, people are so thankful for the TEAM that has saved him. And yes it is a TEAM effort. We are proud to be Jim’s mommas! ☺
