When owners don't pay attention to their pets mouths it can become a major issue. This recently was the case when an owner had to relinquish their two cats to Warrick County Animal Control. When pets need any type of medical care Warrick Animal Guardians has to raise the funds or the animals do without. This will only allow the pets to remain in pain or continue with problems. Thankfully, even if the donations don’t come in for that specific animal Warrick Animal Guardians can often pay for the vet care.
Meet Remington and Ruger. Both these boys were surrendered at 10 years old by their owner. The owner was moving back home after a divorce and his family didn’t welcome the cats back home with him. Because of their age no animal shelter or rescue would help him. The owner sadly thought it was a bad thing to surrender his pets to WCAC. But in reality, they got some much need relief. They both had really bad mouths and a lot of pain.
After they had been surrendered, we noticed all the medical issues they had and they promptly went to see the veterinarian. The low estimate was going to be a minimum of $250 and ended up costing $600 between the both of them. They both had several broken and missing teeth, Grade 4 periodontal disease and had to have sutures from the multiple extractions. They were on pain medications and antibiotics for a week after. Once they were healed, they went on to both be adopted.
Thankfully, due in part to Warrick Animal Guardians both of these boys had a happy ending! This is just one of many examples of the ways your donation dollars can help the animals that are in need. We are thankful for every dollar and appreciate all the care and concern given for our organization.
