Girlie

Doggy duo needs help

SPCA needs to raise about $2,000 to look after medical conditions for two dogs

Girlie and Dash, two dogs at the Vernon SPCA, need the public’s help.

The canine pair came into the care of the B.C. SPCA’s Vernon branch after the closure of an animal rescue organization in the area.

Dash, a one-and-a-half-year-old German shepherd cross, was suffering from a bad flea infestation, flea dermatitis and a severe ear infection, while Girlie, an 11-year-old Chihuahua cross, has dental disease, a bladder infection, flea dermatitis and mammary tumours that require removal.

“Dash is super happy all of the time, a real high-energy boy, and Girlie is a real sweetheart. She’ll greet us with a wagging tail and is quiet and friendly, despite all of her medical issues,” said Chelsea Taylor, branch manager.

“We just want to see these two have another chance at healthier, happier lives in loving, forever homes.”

Medical costs for both dogs are expected to be nearly $2,000. The SPCA relies primarily on public donations to carry out its work.

To donate, go to spca.bc.ca/vernonor or visit the shelter at 4800 Haney Rd.
