In the Spring of 2011, a little dachshund mix was brought to Penn South Pet Clinic after being hit by a car. His sweet personality quickly made him a staff favorite and we nicknamed him Monkey. After unsuccessfully trying to find his owner we were faced with a decision: take him to the animal shelter or treat him and find him a new home? We decided to do a fund raiser for his care and proceeded to surgery.
The community heard about Monkey’s situation and we were overwhelmed with the outpouring of generosity! Fairview Elementary School donated money from their annual penny drive and the Bella Foundation matched that donation! Thus the Monkey Rescue Fund was born. Monkey recovered from his surgery and went to a wonderful home where he enjoys a daily therapeutic swim in an indoor heated pool. His legacy lives on at Penn South, and we have been able to treat, house, and re-home several unfortunate animals – all thanks to the on-going generosity of our clients and community!
Here are some pictures of our Happy Endings:
