Alice was almost euthanized because of a broken leg, but saved thanks to donations to the rescue from the GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Bank program..
Regularly the National Feed A Rescue Pet Week takes place. Joining the mission of feeding shelter pets all over the country is a good alternative, if you love animals but cannot adopt nor foster.
Shelters and animal rescue centers seriously need pet food and supplies. This need has dramatically increased after the pandemic decreased donations and increased pet surrenders. The goal is to provide 2.4 million healthy meals and one hundred and fifty pounds of essential supplies. So definitely any help is greatly appreciated.
The spokesdog for this year’s National Feed A Rescue Pet Week is Alice. Alice is a mix breed terrier with an energetic personality. She is currently recovering from a broken leg and a near euthanazia experience.
Owner Decided Alice Would Be Euthanized
Alice was brought to the Houston Humane Society near the end of June after her owner noticed something wrong with one of her legs. The owner could not afford the veterinary care costs, so she decided Alice would be euthanized.
The staff decided differently. They chose to rescue Alice to give her a second chance. The shelter vet examined her and found that her right tibia was broken. The leg was put into a cast, and Alice is now on the way to a full recovery.
The shelter was able to rescue Alice because of the money from food donations to the rescue from the GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Bank program and The Animal Rescue Site.
Alice loves playing and befriending everyone she meets. While keeping her still is sometimes difficult, she’ll be happy to lie down for some belly rubs. The staff and the volunteers shower her with plenty of love and stuffed animals to keep her busy.
After Full Recovery Alice Will Be Up For Adoption
After a full recovery, Alice will be up for adoption. The shelter staff is hopeful that the cast will fully heal the leg, with amputation as the worst-case scenario. Whichever the case may be, she’ll still be able to live a happy and healthy life.
Alice’s ideal home would have a fenced in backyard and have another dog as a playmate. If you want to adopt her, please contact the Houston Humane Society.
