First I get the soft foods since they aren't really able to jew the hard foods. I put the medication in the bowl with the soft foods mix it around and let the dog eat it. Also i've been walking around the hospital with the doctor looking at the animals just the basic procedure looking how at how they are doing making sure they're not in any pain. Also once we went to the x-ray room to get an x-ray on a dog's foot that had been injured. The doctor told to be extremely careful when handling an injury such as a sprained or broken bone because the animals bones are more fragile than ours. When the results came in ot said that the dog had a sprain and that it needed a little cast which i thought was pretty kinda cute. Some changes i had to do for my project was that at first for my senior project I had to change locations which was really stressful because some animal hospitals I had to be 18 years old to be able to volunteer. Som troubles I ran into was travel time because the animal hospital I am volunteering is in

Humans to the Rescue! We often hear sad stories of animals being brutally injured, or even killed, by people. They’re often hunted, poached, and clubbed. I mean, let’s face it, we are still battling Animal Rights issues and several people still don’t agree that animals are worth all that trouble. As a dog owner, and lover of animals in general, I am very aware that each one has it’s own personality and deserve to be treated with more respect than they usually get. But the people that Business2Community are highlighting thought that these creatures were worth risking their lives for. You can see a whole list of people helping animals out of situations that many people wouldn’t have. One man even saved a bear from drowning!

PROJECT DESCRIPTIONS. • Emergency Rescue and Rehabilitation – This is the most cost intensive part of our work, and the aspect that often requires fast funding so we can act quickly to provide emergency medical care and rescue services.

Animals rescued from severe abuse and neglect usually have severe health challenges, frequently related to starvation, dehydration, and physical abuse. First priority is major medical care, medicine as needed, and good nutrition. Our organization does not use cages or chains. The dogs have roaming space in fenced acres, allowing them to exercise and run off their stress as
