Lucky Lady is an 8 year old Australian Cattle dog x
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 is an 11 year old Coonhoud
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 [😉]
At Rainbow Bridge
Sammy is a young at heart 12yr. old Pomeranian mix.
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.
Sammy loves his walks, cuddle on the couch, the odd treat and play with his brother dog, Moe.
Although he is a senior he looks as young as 5yrs. A true love bug [💜]
Storm is a Swiss Mountain Dog (Palliative)
Storm came to Freedom when she was 4 months old from the pound in Quebec where she was surrendered. We were contacted because Storm needed to be rushed to emergency. She was having continuous seizures and they thought she had a broken spine or pelvis issues. We rushed straight to pick 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 tests and treatments done: spinal tap- which confirmed she had meningitis, eosinophilis lab work - negative, heart work tests ammonia - negative
suspect meningitis, eosinophilic mixed pleocystosis - protozoal, tick borne, parasitic, allergic
cardiac disease/murmur 5/6
Prognosis: this could be due to viral, fungal, guarded for now although we have some control of the seizures now.
That was what was said at the hospital. Fast forward and Storm had been seizure free for over a year, is running around and acting like a puppy and her sight is back.
