How Your Generosity Helped Pretty Go Home for the Holidays

You may recall Pretty, a beautiful eight-month-old chocolate lab cross who stole our hearts in early October after arriving at the Regina Humane Society with an awful fracture after being struck by a vehicle. While her injury was severe and would require specialized surgery, she was strong, young and the prognosis was very good for a solid recovery. We put out a call to help our young patient and you responded with flying colours, donating all that was needed to cover the costs of her expensive surgery. With the additional help of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, Pretty had her surgery where an external fixator was used to hold her leg bones in place while they healed. It also meant several weeks of kennel rest, which is a tall order for an energetic and curious pup!

But, under the guidance of the Society Veterinary Team and in the home of the one of our dedicated foster families, she persevered. An excellent patient, she did everything she was supposed to do and our hopes were high that Pretty would be healed and ready for adoption in time for the holiday season. Her long journey now behind her, we are thrilled to share that she is fully recovered and has gone Home for the Holidays to enjoy the season with her new family.

We cannot express enough our thanks and gratitude to all who helped Pretty to realize her dream, and for your support each and every day. Because of you, this beautiful girl received the medical care she needed and was given the chance to run and play for many years to come.

Despite the happy news about Pretty, we still have 149 animals in our care, half of which are ready to find their new family right now. If an individual or family has carefully considered their decision and the responsibility of a new pet, the holidays can be an optimum time to adopt. If you’re unable to adopt but still want to help a pet, sponsoring a pet’s adoption is the perfect way to help a shelter animal go Home for the Holidays!
