A Sweet Note from Snowy

A Sweet Note from Snowy

When the Rodriguez family got their dog, Snowy, at three months old, she lost all of her hair. The family brought her to C.A.R.E.4Paws’ mobile clinic, where they found out that Snowy had mange. “My husband was desperate and wanted to give her up because we couldn’t make her better,” says Lourdes Rodriguez. However, Carlos Abitia, C.A.R.E.4Paws’ cofounder and mobile clinic manager, and our clinic veterinarian, Dr. Tom Thompson, told the family that Snowy could be treated and get better and grow all of her hair back.

Snowy went through the treatment for mange and after that, she got spayed and received all of her vaccinations, thanks to a generous veterinary assistance grant from PetSmart Charities.

“C.A.R.E.4Paws services are very important,” says Lourdes. “The staff is very friendly and treats you very well, and they have all these services for pet owners in need. It is an exceptional service!”

Dolly is Better than Ever

Dolly is Better than Ever

In the spring of 2021, Courtney Vasquez noticed that her kitty, Dolly, was not feeling well. She ate less and less and lost her energy. During the pandemic, the Vasquez’s family business has suffered significantly, but luckily, Courtney discovered C.A.R.E.4Paws’ wellness services for families in need. After meeting with our veterinarian, Dr. Tom Thompson, Courtney learned that Dolly has stomatitis, an extremely painful inflammation of the mouth. “Dr. Thompson and staff went out of the box thinking of solutions. For six months, we saw him every two weeks,” says Courtney. “And now, Dolly is better than ever. She’s playing, eating and has an appetite that just won’t quit! Bringing Dolly to the clinic was the best decision I ever made. Because of C.A.R.E.4Paws, she’s getting what she needs.”

We thank PetSmart Charities for contributing to the medical services for Dolly and so many pets in need!
