December 29, 2011 – We wanted to share some good news. Donner and Blitzen – 2 dogs taken into our care after being starved and abandonded earlier this month - are friendly, energetic and enjoying playtime together in our play yard. Blitzen is a little shy around people but is warming up toward her caretakers. Both dogs are sweet and have a great time running and playing together.
Our staff have been carefully monitoring both dogs’ body condition, and they are beginning to gain weight. They look great. Having been exposed to the elements, Donner and Blitzen also have minor skin irritations (called dermatitis) that our Shelter Medicine team is successfully treating. They will remain under our care for the time being as they continue to recuperate.
We are humbled by the outpouring of generosity, love and concern for Donner and Blitzen. Thank you for making the holiday season here at the League a brighter one.
