For dogs and cats waiting for a forever home, the day someone saves you is like Christmas, no matter what day the calendar says. For five-year-old chocolate Lab Brogie, it was twelve days before Christmas.
Brogie, in the shelter, was scheduled to be euthanized on December 13th when his Christmas came! Brogie's guardian angel saw him and wanted to adopt him, so he was pulled immediately. Soon after, preparations were made to get him ready for adoption on his "release date" five days later on the 18th. He was neutered, chipped, and given his vaccines.
Despite a Merry Christmas and new forever home, the New Year rang in with distressing news. Brogie had two masses, both of which needed removal since they were growing rapidly. It was also discovered the poor guy was heartworm positive. That was when his new and loving family came to Labrador Life Line for help.
Brogie's family, living on limited income, was struggling. After spending funds for treatment of Brogie's masses, nothing remained for his heart worm treatment. Brogie’s prognosis was good.
Thanks to our generous donors we can help Labs like Brogie--in this case-- get a third chance at life. Every Lab deserves a fighting chance and that is what Labrador Life Line gives them--a chance...and many more Christmas mornings.
