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.
