Taking a minute to share with you a situation that came to us last week, and ended on a very positive note –
Last week Snow White was surrendered to HSGS and we could tell right away that she was due to deliver puppies any day. She delivered the puppies the next day and we soon realized she needed to be separated from the puppies because she had become very protective over them. The staff made the hard decision to separate the mother from her puppies, and as a result, Snow White has returned to her friendly, playful self. The puppies are so small that they require bottle feeding every two hours. Our friends at Coastal Pet Rescue responded to our call for fosters that could bottle feed and agreed to help us out! Within 24 hours, they'd secured two different foster families to take in all the puppies so they could continue the bottle feeding and care taking! We would love to give a huge thank you to the great folks that work with Coastal Pet Rescue. We are grateful to have the support of other animal rescue organizations throughout our community! It really does take a village!

Sunday was National Feral Cat Day, and yesterday Pet Fix Savannah celebrated by offering a special price for spay/neuter, rabies and an ear tip to caretakers! These 24 cats will no longer be "contributing" to the overpopulation in our community. Great job, Pet Fix Savannah team!
Fun Fact: To reduce the cats' anxiety, their cages are covered with blankets so they can't see the other cats around them. ... See MoreSee Less
