FOSTER HOME NEEDED! Lover Boy had emergency surgery today to fix Gastric Dilation Volvulus (GDV), also known as bloat. Thank you to Dr. Sears and the fantastic team at TenderCare Veterinary Center for saving this beautiful boy's life! We'd love to find a quiet home for Lover Boy to recover in. Please contact SVASC if you can help!

We would also really appreciate donations to help cover the cost of Lover Boy's surgery! Without help from caring people in our community, there are many dogs and cats that we couldn't afford to save. Thank you for your support!

Jaimee and Roland have an anniversary...one year ago today they were brought into the shelter with the rest of their colony. Most of these cats tested positive for feline leukemia. Jaimee came in with 5 other kittens her age. I held every one of those kittens as they took their last breath...they couldn't fight anymore. I became her sole source of affection and attention since she had lost her entire family. Jaimee grew big and strong in her cage but nobody wanted to adopt her.

Roland came in mean as a snake but over a few months he realized he really loves people. He's become the sweetest cat we have ever had. Roland loves belly rubs and his tongue is always sticking out. So why has everyone looked past him for a year?

Jaimee and Roland saved each other. Both were becoming very stressed in their isolated cages so we put them together. They quickly became the best of friends and have since been inseparable. Both of these cats tested positive for feline leukemia, a disease which compromises their immune systems making them much more prone to illness than normal cats.

Jaymee and Roland cannot live with cats that are negative for feline leukemia however they do great with dogs and kids!! Feline leukemia can only be transmitted to other cats. This disease does shorten the lifespan of affected cats. If contracted as a kitten they typically don't live past 2 years old. If contracted as an adult they can live a much longer life, around 8-10 years.

The reality is that Jaimee probably has another six months to live. She has spent over half her life in a cage. Roland could live for several more years. These two deserve a happily ever after since they have lost so much....please let us know if you can be their forever family. If you cannot take them home please share, we are hopeful we can find them the loving family they deserve!

Meet Ferdinand the gentle bull! Ferdi came to SVASC with a severe infection caused by numerous bite wounds on his face and neck. He was thin, dirty, and in desperate need of medical attention. Ferdinand has been in a foster home recovering and he's looking great! He is ready to find his forever home.

Based on the wounds Ferdinand had when he came in, we think it's safe to say that his experience with other dogs has not always been great. While he gets along with other dogs, he over-reacts to things that most dogs could just walk away from. We think it would be better for Ferdinand to go to a home without other dogs for now, until he learns more social skills.

It's obvious that humans have let Ferdinand down in his past. But you will never find a dog more willing to give love. He would make a great emotional support dog or just an incredible best friend. His collar says it all. Ferdinand is full of hugs and kisses.

Keep Miss Josephine in your thoughts today, she is having an emergency spay procedure today due to pyometra. We would never be able to help animals like sweet Josephine without our amazing donors!

Josephine came to us on Friday after her owner passed away, to say the least she has had a rough few days. We are also looking for a foster home for her to recover in, if your interested please email us at svanimalservicescenter@gmail.com. Josephine is good with all people, dogs and cats!
