TLC? Ah, yeah – we’ve got that! Within minutes, our manager and foster coordinator were in the Much Love van cruising downtown to rescue this sweet boy. He is absolutely incredible – kind, gentle, submissive, and thankfully now on the mend. The nice staff at VCA Petville have put in hours and hours over the weekend to stabilize him – working on his demodex mange (not contagious), open sores, swollen paws, dehydration, and malnutrition.
We visit him every day and we are treated to many sloppy kisses and tail wags! He is on many medications and has enjoyed a soothing oatmeal bath to help remove the hundreds of ticks from all over his body. He happily takes treats and loves to rest his head on his stuffed toys. He will see a dermatologist later in the week to make sure he is getting everything he needs. He deserves it!
Our plea is for a foster (and forever) home for Vernon – for now without other animals due to his weak immune system. He has weeks of recovery and he needs a warm bed and soft grass to lay on. Even if you can only foster for a few weeks – that is fine! The pictures make him look big, but he is only a puppy and about 33 pounds. Please forward this email on to anyone you know who might be able to help.

UPDATE 3/31- Vernon is doing great! His skin is improving every day and he has gained 6 pounds. He is SO happy and such a joy to be around! He left the vet office today (thank you VCA Petville for the excellent care you give him!) and he is in his new foster. Thank you Vicki for giving him that warm bed and lots of love!
