Matt S, an OLH resident, found this adorable puppy at the Van Dyke/ Peavy Pavillon on Monday morning, 7/31/17, while searching for his lost cat named Ziggy. Unfortunately, Matt was unable to take in the puppy and as such took to DAS. While at the shelter, DAS ran some tests to determine if the pup was heart worm positive or if the pup had parvo etc... and as it turns out, he had a clean bill of health. DAS went ahead and schedule him to be neutered. Before the hold period was up, this cutie pie was preadopted within a day! A happy ending and a better life for this sweet boy! If you have a pet or find a pet and can no longer care for it, please contact OLH PetWatch prior to taking to DAS particularly if the pet is a puppy. Shelters take in hundreds of animals a day and some of not most are have not been properly vaccinated. Because of this, life threatening illness such as Parvo can quickly take the life of these little ones with less developed immune systems.
This beautiful 2 year old Great Pyrenees showed up on Sunday morning at the 500 block of Classen, across from Hill Middle School. Stefani Schultz, an OLH resident and her daughter have been caring for this sweet baby who was covered in fleas and ticks. 'Barney' has been reported to DAS as Found, does not have a chip or collar and is still intact. It appears that this pup has had a rough start of things.
Summer is in full swing and beating the heat is hard to do when you have a fur coat you can't take off! Emmy Lou, (pictured in the right in the photo), an OLH resident Pet, and gorgeous German shepherd, collapsed while on a walk with its owner. Emmy collapsed in front of my house and we got her body temp back to normal but it was not without effort and lots of help from other neighbors such as Barbara McCormick. Barbara, a former nurse and paramedic, quickly identified the course of action and we Executed it with perfection. Please remember to keep your dogs out of the heat and limit walks during the hottest part of the day. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke is a life threatening condition and should not be ignored. If your pet is heat sensitive, always bring water, ice, phone and an umbrella to protect your fur baby from the sun's rays. We have to look out for them... they can't help themselves. Stay cool!
