Our Success Stories
Lady came to rescue as an owner
surrender from a family who left her outside tied to the base of a trampoline
because she was too energetic for the house. A wonderful family stepped
forward to foster with the intention of adopting Lady, if all worked out.
Lady was an instant hit with her family. She was very curious of the house
cat and would often stalk th cat. The family really did a great job working
with Lady on house manners and social skills. She loved the kids and they
loved her! A TRUE MATCH.
It is with great sadness that
we must post that Lady was ushered across the Rainbow Bridge. She had
been showing some signs of disinterest in food and slowing down. Then
she stopped eating and would whimper when her head or neck was stroked.
After several trips to the vet and numerous tests, the family was referred
to Iowa State Veterinary School and a neurologist. It was a CAT scan the
showed us what was taking Lady...a brain tumor. There was nothing to do
but make Lady comfortable. Her family had done everything they could.
On the eve of April 23, Lady suffered a Grand Maul seizure and was unable
to recover. Her family lovingly said good-bye on April 24, 2003.
You shared 9 short months with
your family Lady, and they shared a lifetime of love and happiness with
you! Run free!
