Sneakers' broken leg is healing
and she is ready
for adoption, thanks to help from the Picasso Veterinary
Sneakers Just Might Be the Right Fit for You!
from Out of the Cage! (Holiday
In October, Sneakers fell victim to the same fate
that befalls many a stray dog and cat in the city — a run-in
with a speeding car. Luckily for Sneakers, only her rear right leg
was broken. A Good Samaritan found the injured two-year-old American
Pit Bull Terrier/Lab mix and took her to NYC
Veterinary Specialists, a specialty animal hospital on Manhattan's
West Side. Again, luck was on her side: the hospital is a Mayor's
Alliance partner in the care of animals whose treatment is paid
for by the Picasso Veterinary
Fund (PVF) of the Mayor's Alliance. The hospital administrator
contacted the Alliance to see if the PVF would pay for Sneakers'
treatment to get her back on four good feet. The answer was yes.
Now Sneakers is recovering from her surgery at Hudson
Valley Kennels. And she's waiting for that special someone who will
complete her recovery by opening their heart and home to her. Sneakers
will be a loving companion; she's gentle and affectionate, and ready
to begin her new life.
Sneakers would love to meet you and give you a chance
to see how much joy she can bring into your life. She would like
nothing more than to start off the new year with you! If you or
someone you know might be Sneakers' soul mate, please contact us
her profile on Petfinder.
We also ask that here at the holidays you consider
giving a gift of hope to dogs and cats who, like Sneakers, need
a little financial help to acquire the medical treatment they need
to get back in the game for a chance for a loving home. Without
that financial help, sick or injured animals that wind up at the
city shelters sometimes don't survive. Your gift of $10, $25, $100…whatever
you can give will help to save a homeless animal like Sneakers.
You can make a convenient
online donation to the Picasso Veterinary Fund and rest assured
that your generosity today will create a bright new year for a deserving
