Emmie was left alone in an apartment while her person battled breast cancer and finally died. With no human contact save a brief weekly visit to refill her automatic food and water dispensers, she became grossly obese, hostile, and anxious, and her health declined. At Easter some church friends of her owner called on local PAHS volunteers to remove her from the apartment.
Because of the neglect she endured, Emmie was very difficult to trap and move out of the apartment—thanks to the efforts of Ivor Durham, Emmie was successfully trapped and removed. Emmie’s rescuers contacted us at PAHS to pay for the veterinary care she urgently needed. Another rescuer found a kindhearted person to foster Emmie indefinitely, and she is now relaxing for the holiday season in a safe and caring “furever” home.
PAHS hopes that, like Emmie, all our friends, donors, and followers, and their four-legged companions, are enjoying this holiday season.
