With her puppies happily nursing and her body healing after amputation surgery, Kassidy is doing well in the care of the Vernon SPCA.
Found by the side of Westside Road with an injured leg and without her puppies recently, Kassidy has come a long way in a short time.
“She’s already been back to the vet and he’s really happy with her progress. She’s getting around really well,” said Corinne Ross, branch manager.
“The puppies are doing fantastic. They’re nursing and we’re supplementing with bottle feeding.”
Kassidy and her puppies were reunited after her story caught the attention of a supportive community that helped all of them get the care they needed with immediate and generous donations.
Due to the nature of Kassidy’s injury, her leg had to be surgically amputated.
She and her pups will stay with one of the SPCA’s foster families until the puppies are old enough for adoption.
“The SPCA is extremely grateful for the public’s kind donations and also thanks the Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital for its generous support,” said Ross.
