The Spirit FundSpirit's Story
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 our hospital 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.

We have a "Spirit Fund" in her honor that benefits any abused pet that is brought through our doors. EVERY CENT DONATED goes to this fund to help other pets who have no one to help them.

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!

Valley Animal Hospital created "The SPIRIT Fund" to help defray the expenses of medical treatment for abused pets that are treated at our hospital. To help raise money for this worthy cause, we hosted the valley's first "Speed Dating for Pet Lovers" on 10-15-05.

100% of ALL entry fees went to this fund!
