Helping Howard...

Howard photo legMany of you are already familiar with Howard’s story. For those who are not, when homeless Howard arrived at LTBHS several weeks ago, it was evident that something was very wrong with his leg. Worried about his safety, we took him to our veterinarian where it was determined that he had a fractured back leg. This was likely from being hit by a car and unfortunately, the leg was beyond repair. With our veterinarian’s recommendation, Howard underwent surgery to amputate his fractured leg. Despite this, we knew with Howard’s sweet personality and big spirit, he’d be able to overcome this challenge.

This surgery was quite expensive and ended up costing $1,000. However, because of our AMAZING group of supporters, we were able to cover the cost of the surgery through donations-thank you to everyone who contributed toward Howard’s recovery! We are so grateful for your help. And the great news is that after getting the rest and recovery he needed in a foster home, Howard is now ready to be adopted! We are so excited for Howard and with his incredible personality, we know that he will make a fantastic companion for some lucky person.

We have so many animals that arrive at LTBHS every year in need of additional medical care just like Howard. Our Michael G. Phillips Good Samaritan Fund helps offset these expenses and we rely on our supporters to help us provide this care. To make a donation to our Good Samaritan Fund, CLICK HERE.
