SPCA Rescues 2 Dogs Living in a Car....
It's a sad story we see far too often. A young girl attending college in Westchester came to the SPCA asking for our help. Her mother had passed away unexpectedly, leaving her two dogs to care for. As a student, living on a college campus that didn't allow animals in the dormitory, she had to make the unfortunate decision to try and find them a new home. No family or friends were willing to step up and take on the responsibility of these two sweet dogs. The young girl was left with no choice but to have them live in her car as she desperately tried to find someone to help her.
Luckily someone suggested that she contact the SPCA and when we heard her story we knew we had to help. Skyla, age 5 and her 1 year-old son, Junior, are beautiful, loving Australian Shepherd/Labrador mixes. Junior has since been adopted but Skyla is heartworm positive, which requires her to undergo a lengthy, expensive treatment plan to hopefully cure her of this horrible disease. She is also currently being treated for a bad skin infection and will be on life-long maintenance medication and a prescription diet which is costly.
Please consider donating to our Mend a Friend Fund which makes it possible for us to give these two dogs much needed medical care. As a non-profit organization, the SPCA receives no county, state or federal funding and relies solely on your generous support!

SPCA's Mend a Friend Fund.
Kiku is an adorable 8 year old Maltese who was recently surrendered to the SPCA when his previous owners fell on hard times and could no longer afford to keep him. Poor Kiku had a large tumor on his hip which was affecting the way that he walked and was clearly causing him pain. The only family he'd ever known was gone and Kiku was obviously scared and in need of immediate medical attention.
He quickly underwent surgery and sadly, the test results came back indicating that the tumor we'd removed was cancerous and an x-ray revealed that the tumor had already spread. Luckily for Kiku, an amazing foster met him, fell in love with him and took him home. The foster is willing to keep him as comfortable as possible and give him lots of TLC.
Kiku's medical bills were quite costly. Please consider donating to our Mend a Friend Fund which makes life changing surgeries possible for Kiku and the animals in our care needing help. As a non-profit organization, the SPCA received no county, state or federal funding and relies solely on your generous support!

How could you not fall in love with that face? Bella, a happy- go-lucky Labrador Retriever was recently rescued from a high-kill shelter and was set to be euthanized within a few days of her arrival. We quickly sprung into action and safely got her here to the SPCA where we knew we could find her a wonderful home.
When Bella arrived we noticed that she was limping. Amazingly, she still had a happy disposition but we knew she must be in pain. Upon further examination and x-rays it was discovered that she had a torn cruciate, which is a fancy way of saying that the ligament in one of her knees was ripped.
Bella recently underwent surgery and is recovering beautifully. She was adopted quickly afterwards and her new family adores her. Luckily for Bella she was given the second chance she deserved. Without our Mend a Friend Fund the SPCA would not be able to perform surgery for animals needing above and beyond care and rehabilitation.
