Happy Tails---Bonnie's Second Chance

Bonnie was given a second chance at life, thanks to Sammie's Friends and the Doris Day Animal Foundation who helped pay for her surgery. 

Bonnie was brought to us by Sutter Animal Control where she was to be euthanized that day! That shelter is over-crowded and with dogs bunched into cages together, there really wasn't time to wonder where her owner was, so they kept her for only a few days. No one thought an owner was coming for this 9-year old dog.

We couldn't let this nice old gal be killed so we took her.  Next, we took Bonnie to the vet because she had hematomas in both ears. A hematoma is a collection of blood, usually clotted, outside of a blood vessel. Very uncomfortable--poor baby—she was miserable.  A little surgery on her ears and she immediately felt better.

Then the most amazing thing happened. Her owner saw her on our Facebook page and came for her!!! They live in another county, and didn’t even know where to look for their beloved girl. A truly happy ending!

Please chip your pet (and register the chip!). It makes it possible for us to help you have a Happy Tail.
