Emerson and Amelia came to Western Hills Humane Society from the Pine Ridge Reservation.
Both girls were spayed and vaccinated when they came to us.
They were also fighting venereal cancer.
With treatment, this form of cancer has a 96% success rate, but both Emerson and Amelia had developed infections in their spay sites and needed to get healthy before continuing the chemotherapy treatments they had begun in Nebraska.
After recovering from these infections, Amelia and Emerson restarted their chemo and received four treatments at the veterinarian’s office. With veterinarian costs and extra care by staff at Western Hills Humane Society, total costs for their care added up to about $2,000.00.
The only way we can provide the above and beyond care for our guests in need is to receive additional donations from businesses and individuals. As a non-kill shelter, our heart is always on the side of the animals, but to continue, we must often ask for additional donations. Because of this kindness and generosity, we were able to provide for Emerson and Amelia’s specific issues.
It was worth every penny: both girls were successfully adopted into loving furever homes.
