By becoming a Rescue Walker for our Paws for a Cause: Virtual Walk each penny raised goes directly in to the lifesaving Veterinary Care we provide to the rescued animals of Summit County.
Rescued by our Humane Officers from a backyard on a cold February day, Clipper thought he had been abandoned for good. Clipper did not have access to basic necessities like food, water, and shelter, and was severely underweight when he came to HSSC. Clipper’s skin was raw, his fur was thin and patchy, and he had painful open sores all over his body.
Our veterinary team immediately began treating Clipper’s skin condition and with antibiotics, specialized food, and medication to ease his itching, determined that he likely has both skin and food allergies. With relief from his itching and a carefully monitored diet, Clipper's skin continues to heal and his hair has grown almost entirely back!
Now fully recovered, Clipper enjoys play groups, people, and any toy that squeaks and he is eager and ready to find his forever home!
Kreacher was found as a severely injured stray. We can’t be sure exactly what caused his horrific injuries, but it is suspected to have been an animal attack. He had large, infected wounds covering the entirety of the back of his head and puncture wounds on his paws. Kreacher would not have made it without our veterinary team.
He needed dozens of stitches and antibiotics to control infection - his healing process is continuing even a month and a half after his harrowing ordeal. His scars tell the story of a difficult past, but through it all he has been a sweet and affectionate lap cat. With the expert care and treatment he continues to receive from our medical team, he is nearly healed and looking forward to the day when he's ready to live in the safety and comfort of a loving forever home!
