Southern Pines Animal Shelter is an open-admission, no-kill shelter. This means that we do not turn animals away based on health, age, or perceived adoptability. We take them all, because we believe that every cat or dog deserves a second chance and the opportunity to find a loving, forever home. However, this also means that we frequently take animals, like Bijou, into our care who require a extra help to find their new beginnings, due to illness, injury or behavior.
Your donations towards these animals with special needs provide animals who are hurting and sick a chance for relief from their pain, a chance to be healthy again, a chance to find a family who understands their needs and who loves them unconditionally. Will you lend a paw?
With a smile that rivals the brightness of the sun, our pal Layla is a happy doggo who has lots of love to give. This sweet girl deserves a future that’s just as bright, happy and full of love as she is.
Will you help make that possible for her?
Layla arrived at the shelter with deep lacerations to her back ankle and foot-- older wounds that were healing poorly. While she is receiving medication to guard against further infection and while her wounds are being dressed and cleaned daily, our veterinarian has determined that we need to do a biopsy of Layla's wound to narrow down the cause of why her injuries aren’t healing as they should. Our veterinarian is estimating that it will take about $350 to get Layla on the road to recovery.
Would you please consider lending a paw to Layla?
Thank you so much for partnering with us to save the most vulnerable and the most at-risk. To pets like Layla, you all are truly lifesavers.
