A few months ago we offered to take on Patrick from RSPCA Qld. Patrick, you see was covered in enormous tumours all over his rear and back legs. Patrick weighed 18 kgs, and for a small dog was in a lot of pain. It took three surgeries to remove the major tumours, one weighed over 1.5 kg alone. With the care of this foster Mum and Dad Michelle and Matt, Patrick thrived and is now able to walk around the block. He will, due to RWL, have a chance at a long and happy life.
That is the value of what Rescue Charities can do. When a shelter has a medical issue dog, working with rescue groups means the dog can have surgery and recover in a home. It is a vital part of our community’s expectations. And we are happy to fulfil it.
