Merida is a 1yr old female dog found as a stray in St. Kitts. Merida had recently whelped puppies and did her very best to give them all of the nutrition that they needed so that they could be chubby, happy and healthy. However, she sacrificed her own well-being in the process.
Merida was rescued by an animal rescue group in St. Kitts called PAWS (People for Animal Welfare St. Kitts). She was emaciated from feeding her litter of pups with little to no nutrition herself.
During Merida's veterinary appointment she tested positive for two tick borne diseases - Ehrlichia and Anaplasmosis. These diseases amongst the intestinal worms, fleas and ticks also left Merida anemic (low red blood cells). Thankfully, with a good helping of TLC and appropriate medications to treat her tick borne diseases, dewormer for her intestinal worms and parasite prevention for the fleas and ticks - Merida is starting to climb the long trek up hill.
Merida continues to get stronger each day and is turning into a beautiful dog!

Bear is a roughly 5 year old longhaired black and tan male Dachshund. Bear's original owner had passed away and no one had stepped up to take care of him. Bear was posted on Facebook to find a new home after his owner passed away. He bounced between a couple of homes before his current owner couldn't bare to see him end up in another bad situation and adopted him.
Bear was welcomed into a house with 3 new Dachshund siblings (two of which are also lucky rescues!). When Bear's current owner found him, he was severely malnourished. To make things worse, when brought in to his veterinarian for a checkup, Bear tested positive for heartworms.
Bear has slowly become stronger and has received the okay from his veterinarian to start his heartworm treatment! We are happy to help Bear and his owner get him back to good health!
Start of Treatment: 12/19/18
