Monkey

Monkey came into the shelter in rough shape.  One look at him and it was clear he had spent the first part of his young life deprived of medical care and – kindness.  He was suffering from a severe case of mange, his lymph nodes were swollen and he had secondary infections.

Lyric

Her photo says it all.  We rescued Lyric from the Riverside shelter.  She was turned in there in horrific condition – with mange so severe she could not even open her eyes and had secondary infections.  It took time but slowly she began to recover – her hair started growing back – and she started … Continued
