Paige was a 12 year old Shih Tzu mix running out of options at a NYC shelter in March of 2012. She didn't look like a Shih Tzu mix though, she looked like a rug. Paige's fur was so matted and crusted with dirt, feces and urine that she couldn't even walk. She was 12, which meant that many didn't think she was worth saving. We did.

We did. We pulled her off the euthanasia list and took her to be groomed right away. She had pyometra, which meant she needed her uterus removed immediately before she went septic. She also had two mammary tumors that needed to be removed. All of this was costly, but it saved her life. Feeling better, Paige had a new lease on life. A week later our sweet girl was adopted!
