An urgent fundraising campaign has been launched by the Humane Society of Kitchener Waterloo and Stratford Perth (HSKWSP) after a dog arrived at the centre in active labour earlier this week.
Four-year-old Daisy gave birth to three puppies – two girls and a boy – on Wednesday morning. All four dogs are doing well and have been moved to a foster home for care.
“The money raised will help Daisy and her puppies lead a healthy, happy life,” says HSKWSP chief executive officer, Kathrin Delutis, in a news release. “The cost of care for four dogs can add up quickly. Being a self-funded and self-governed organization that receives no funding from the government for our charitable programs and services, we rely on our community’s generosity to provide this life-saving, around-the-clock care. We truly hope you’ll donate today.”
Medical care costs are estimated to be $6,500 which includes daily care costs as well as spay and neuter surgery for all four dogs, vaccinations, parasite treatment, microchip and any other medication required.
