Loki (now Peanut) was a reservation rescue who came to WHHS after his owner died on the Pine Ridge Reservation.
Loki waited at her owner’s trailer for months for her to return before being rescued by Lakota Animal Care.
When Loki came to join us, he suffered from mange, ear infection, worms, fleas, a traumatic accident injury on his leg, and was in need of an eye surgery. Loki’s eyelid was growing under, irritating his eye.
We began working to get Loki healthy again and had the eye surgery done, costing WHHS about $350.00.
Loki was adopted but was returned to WHHS about 6 months later with a huge lump in his neck. After consulting with a veterinarian, we found that he had a ruptured salivary gland and required another surgery. Through all of this, Loki was as loving always and gave all of his friends at the shelter big hugs. We decided to give this young, loving dog a chance and we did the salivary gland surgery- costing our facility $2,100.00.
The only way we could have provided the above and beyond care for Loki was to receive additional donations from businesses and individuals. As a no-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 Loki’s specific issues.
Loki was soon adopted by a wonderful woman who could commit to all his future medical needs. A happy ending indeed!
