December in Review
This holiday season we want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of our volunteers, foster carers, supporters, staff and donors! We could not do the work we continue to do and save the lives we do without your support.
A quick recap of 2017 has shown me just how crazy this year has been for us, with the opening of our new shelter vet clinic, the running of our much needed pet outreach program, we signed up with 4 new Victorian pounds to save more animals and we rescued and rehomed over 2000 cats and dogs- just to name a few things!
This year has been a huge one for us and we can honestly say that we are looking forward to the challenges that 2018 will bring for our organisation, as always we have BIG plans.
This month alone, we took in 89 animals and found 101 new homes. We had a big influx of puppies and kittens throughout the month, and our shelter veterinary clinic has been running smoothly and efficiently with many surgeries being completed including an emergency exploratory surgery after poor little puppy Hamlet presented very flat and not wanting to eat.
Turns out that little Hamlet decided that the rocks in his foster carer’s garden were a delicious puppy snack the night before, causing the rocks to be lodged in his intestines so surgical intervention was required.
We’ve also been raising funds via mycause.com.au for Oscar to get a total hip replacement. We are more than halfway there so if you can spare some funds please head over to his fundraising page now!
On behalf of SCAR and the animals in our care, we hope you have a wonderful start to the New Year and a happy and prosperous 2018!
