She was skinny, scared and scarred when Animal Control brought this precious little dog into our veterinary hospital with 2nd and 3rd degree burns on over 40% of her body. These burns were deliberately inflicted by her "owner" and as far as we could discern, were the result of a boiling liquid (oil, coffee, etc.) being poured on her. We went to court for 3 months trying to get this person to pay for what he did, but the only witness to this crime did not show up to testify.
The judge ordered the accused to pay $25 and to serve 10 days in jail with 7 days suspended.
Spirit endured many weeks of therapy at the S.P.C.A. which must have been so painful to her burned body, but not once did she show any aggression...only licks to everyone who worked on her. She was adopted by Dr. Poage & Denise, and is now our hospital ambassador for abused pets.
She has enjoyed participating in agility, flyball and basically, any activity that involves interaction with people and balls! We love her and feel so blessed that she came our way - she has truly touched every person that has met her with her humble and "every day is a party" personality!

"Tucker" & "Fancy"
Two furry members of our staff are "Fancy" and "Tucker", two fortunate felines that were "rescued" in 2000 from a garbage bag found in the woods of a local golf course. (Thank goodness our rescuer couldn't hit straight!) They spend their days relaxing in the play room, giving physical therapy to one of our favorite little "Dusty" dogs, and sometimes they even donate their blood to help other patients.
