Snow Storm Puppy Rescued

A nine-week-old Lab/Sharpei mix puppy was found, injured and alone in the recent snowstorm. A good Samaritan called Animal Services, who then brought the puppy to Asheville Humane Society. The medical staff quickly determined that he needed emergency surgery to survive, due to a severe ruptured intestine, and they immediately rushed the puppy to REACH Animal Hospital. The puppy (that was named Pax, after the snowstorm) had a 50/50 chance of surviving his operation.

Concerned citizens asked how they could help on the Facebook page of Asheville Humane Society. Generous donors stepped forward to cover the cost of the surgery, which was $1250. 

Thankfully, Pax survived his surgery and is now being monitored around-the-clock by Asheville Humane Society medical staff for life-threatening infection. This is just one example of the heroic efforts that are made every day by Asheville Humane Society to save animals' lives.
