The shelter is often full, so owner-surrendered animals and those who have been there the longest are always in danger of euthanization.

Donation Request for Patsy


Patsy is a 5 year old, 10 pound chihuahua mix who has until recently been living chained up outside with a Tupperware container to call home. She had surgery on 1/20 to repair two hernias, which were very large for so small a dog. Visit her webpage for more details and please consider a donation to the Athenspets Medical Fund which paid for her operation.
