Saving pets is our passion.
Hi everyone,

My name is Spikey, and I'm a puppy. I'm three months old, and right now I live at North Shore Animal League America. I don't know much about medical stuff, but the doctors here at the League told me that I have a very bad heart murmur - a serious grade five out of six. They said that the murmur was caused by an abnormal heart valve; and according to the heart doctor, I will most likely develop Congestive Heart Failure by the time I'm only one year old.

The doctors say I may live to five or six years old and then develop Congestive Heart Failure, but either way, my life expectancy is significantly shortened, and I'll probably only make it to about six years old or so. Once I actually develop the heart failure, there's really nothing that can be done to stop it. Currently, I'm on some special heart medicine and feel pretty good. The doctors tell me that I'm doing wonderfully, and that they are going to do their best to make me as comfortable as possible – that includes my favorite white smooshy blanket and lots of tickles under my chin! I'm a little shy right now, but I'm sure that once I get used to things, I'll come out of my shell. Since I only have a short time, I'd really like to get started on a happy life. Every day I dream of living in a loving home with my very own family. I think about how they will hold and cuddle me, and how I’ll be able to make them smile. I really need an adopter or foster care parent who understands that every day is precious. Together, we can live life to the fullest.

Everyone seems to fuss over me because of my sick heart. If you ask me, it feels so full of love and hope, it must be working! Won't you please help the League so that they can continue to take care of sick animals like me? That way, I know I can get all the medicine and care that I need, for as long as I need it. Thank you for being so kind and caring about a little puppy like me. Please make a donation to help support my medical care today. It really makes a world of difference.

What Gives Me Hope People..., people give me hope when I meet someone kind, when I see someone care not because they have to or should but just because...
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Americans would be more informed and have more of a say in daily operations of the government.
What/who changed my life and why Pearl Jam - without Pearl Jam I may not have been strong enough to deal with a situation in my life... and today Pearl Jam continues to move my soul. Pearl Jam, like U2, who I also love, is involved in many charitable groups and supports their causes such as Peta.

Steve & Terri Irwin for their passion and helping me realize I can make a difference.
