Nursing Dog Needs Your Help

Recently an adult female Coonhound Mix came into the Bradford County Humane Society as a stray. After taking her to a vet it was determined that she had a past injury to her hips and pelvis area and was also pregnant. The staff at the shelter named her MeMe and she is a calm, sweet, loyal dog. Meme smiles, keeps her cage clean, and behaves well on a leash. She is medium to large in size. Due to difficulty during labor, MeMe needed to have an emergency cesarean section at a local veterinary hospital.

MeMe is in foster care right now resting, nursing her pups and will be available for adoption by mid-June. Her pups will also be available for adoption at that time.

Due to MeMe’s C-section a large veterinary bill in excess of $1,166 was paid by the Bradford County Humane Society. If you can help BCHS with this vet bill it would be greatly appreciated.

Last year alone, BCHS paid over $17,000 in vet bills not only for emergency surgeries for dogs hit by vehicles, or cats that needed leg and hip surgery, but also for regular check-ups at local vets for various BCHS shelter animals. BCHS takes great pride in providing each animal with the necessary veterinary care so they are healthy during their stay at the shelter up until their adoption into their “forever homes.”

Any donations towards MeMe’s vet bill will be helpful. You can send a check directly to BCHS at PO Box 179, Ulster, PA 18850 attn: MeMe
