Animal Files: Holiday miracles for the animals – Reno Gazette-Journal

The holidays do not provide a break from the daily challenges in an animal shelter. Fortunately, there are plenty of heart-warming little miracles happening every day at Nevada Humane Society.

When Sheila arrived at the shelter, she resembled a dirty mop rather than a dog. She was barely able to walk or see, and it looked like it had been a while since she had last known a kind touch or a good meal. Sheila’s matted coat was shaved off; her broken jaw, rotten teeth and eye injury were treated in our clinic. Despite all she has been through, she now is a lively, happy, loving little dog.

Cowgirl was an extremely tiny kitten and so weak when she arrived that she was in danger of dying. In many shelters, neonatal kittens are quickly destroyed, but not here. Cowgirl got a lot of TLC in our clinic. Although it was touch-and-go for a while, she had a strong will to live in that tiny body.
