On March 20th Angel was operated on by an Orthopedic Surgeon.. The vet was able to get Angels right leg fixed. After some healing time her cast will be changed to a splint and then her left leg can be fixed.

Prayers and Donations greatly needed.

This is about Angel - a miniature pincher

She was surrendered to the Wyoming County No-Kill SPCA (Attica NY) on February 26th, 2008. She was given to her owner as a Christmas present.

This little girl was born in October 2007, which makes her almost 5 months old.

She has spent all of her life struggling to walk, but not very successfully.

The owners took her to three veterinarians, all of the estimates were in the same range of $2000.00 to $4000.00 dollars.

The owners can not afford this. So rather than "put her out of her misery" they surrendered her to us.

We are trying to raise money for her. The surgery is going to be expensive along with the after care and the xrays.The vet said that her elbows were backwards, which is a genetic defect.

The good news is that it is fixable!

The bad news is that is will be expensive.

What we are hoping and praying for is for her to get some sponsors to help with the surgery.

She doesn't know that her legs are not supposed to hurt and be crooked. If you would like to be one of her sponsors send your donation to:

Wyoming County SPCA
808 Creek RD, RT 98
PO Box 151
Attica, N.Y. 14011


Please mark it as Fund for Angel.

Or you can donate using the Paypal button on our webpage found here:

http://wcspca.net/contact.html

Every dollar brings Angel closer to a normal life.

She is a sweetheart, once the surgery is done she will be looking for her forever home.

Please see the pictures below of Angel:

Snow can be fun, for a while! Look at Jake!

Wind chill temperatures in Western New York are currently below zero. Warm your pet on the coldest days with these cold weather pet safety reminders:

*Bring Animals Indoors During Snowstorms: Even "outdoor" pets have difficulty in extreme weather conditions. Cats should be kept indoors at all times of the year, particularly during the freezing winter months.

* Keep a Tight Leash: Never let your dog off the leash on snow or ice, especially during a snowstorm. Pets frequently lose their scent on snow and ice, especially if snow is falling at a fast rate, and your pets can easily lose their sense of direction. They may also panic during a snowstorm and run away; many pets are lost during the winter months. Remember to keep current identification on your pet at all times!

*Keep Pets At Home: Never leave your pet alone in a car during cold weather. A car can act as a refrigerator in the winter, holding in the cold. Your pet could literally freeze to death.

*Always Dry Pet's Wet Feet: Thoroughly wipe off your dog’s legs and stomach when he comes in and out of the rain, snow or ice. Check his sensitive foot pads, which may be bleeding from snow or ice encrusted in them. Your dog may also pick up salt and other chemicals on his feet accidentally. These chemicals could hurt him if he swallows them while licking his feet.

*Make Pets Cozy: Make sure your pet has a warm place to sleep far away from outside drafts and preferably off the floor.

*Check Cars for Cats: During the winter, stray or neglected cats outdoors sometimes sleep under the hood of the car where it's warm and comfortable. If you start the motor, cats could get caught in or flung about by the fan belt, causing serious injury or death. To prevent this, bang loudly on the hood and sides of your car before turning on the ignition to give the cat a chance to escape.

*Keep Outdoor 'Sessions' Short: Take your dog outside only for as long as it takes for him to relieve himself. Dogs, particularly small, short-haired breeds like Chihuahuas and terriers, suffer from the cold despite their seemingly warm fur coats.

*Bathe Pets Only When Necessary: Your pet runs the chance of catching a cold when wet, especially in cold weather. If you absolutely must bathe your pet, consult a professional groomer, or see your veterinarian for recommendations.

*Keep Pets Warm: Limit the clipping of your pet's hair in the cold winter months, keeping your pet as warm as possible. Brush your pet daily in lieu of clipping to keep your pet's coat healthy, shiny, clean and mat-free.

*Hungry Pets: Speak to your veterinarian about increasing your pet's supply of food, particularly protein, to keep his fur thick and healthy through the winter months. Inquire about vitamin and oil supplements.

*ANTIFREEZE IS POISON TO PETS: ANTIFREEZE, EVEN IN SMALL DOSES, IS A LETHAL POISON FOR DOGS AND CATS! Because of its sweet taste, animals are attracted to it. Be sure to clean up spills thoroughly, and consider switching to an animal-friendly antifreeze.

*OUTDOOR ANIMAL SHELTER MUST BE SUITABLE FOR INCLEMENT WEATHER: ...and if it's not, animal welfare officers can seize the outdoor pet, even before he or she is showing signs of suffering.

Pictures on Myspace Found Here

This entire family of a Mom and 5 pups was found cold and starving in a field.

The puppies are about a month old and all appear to be in good shape. The mother really sacrificed to keep them alive.

Fortunately someone called the Wyoming County SPCA and they were rescued. Without your support the Shelter wouldn't be here and these sweethearts would have died.

Please do all you can to support our No-kill SPCA.
