Our dogs love to sleep on Kuranda Dog beds, but we don't have enough

Please donate to our Veterinary Care Donation. We have 1100 animals come through our doors each year and operate on a $3000 vet care budget. |
With this being said some animals need more medical care than others. Please help us give these animals a fighting chance!
Here are some of their stories:
Bibi arrived at CCHS in April 07. She was rescued from another shelter because they were too full! It was discovered shortly after her arrival that she was heartworm positive. She received treatment for the heartworms. Treatment was going well, but she began to lose weight and became very thin. Bibi was taken back to the vet and he did a blood draw so he could test her blood to see if he could find out what was wrong with her. It was discovered that her liver levels were abnormal. The animal services scrambled to raise funds for our Veterinary Care Fund so Bibi could have surgery to have a biopsy done. She was scheduled for the surgery for the biopsy. She was nervous about having surgery but pulled through just fine. She has a very large scar to prove it! The results came back and there was damage to her liver. Our vet prescribed some special medication to help the liver. She was also put on some natural remedies with the supervision of her vet. At the end of October, Bibi had her last blood draw done and all her liver levels came back normal! YES NORMAL! She is so excited and grateful that she was given the chance at a new life by the wonderful Columbia County Humane Society. We must tell you a little about Bibi. She is a very cute dog in personality and looks. The staff thinks she may have suffered some abuse in my old home. Bibi sinks to the floor if you raise your voice or have something in your hand. Bibi can't tell you what may have happened to her, but she can try to tell her story through her body language. Bibi just wants someone to cuddle with. It has also been discovered that she also loves belly rubs!
Bibi has been adopted and is living comfortably in her new forever home. Please check out her friends who are still awaiting forever homes.

BIBI FUND ANIMALS Before 2009
Blue arrived as a very pregnant stray cat. She nursed her kittens and they are ready for adoption now. It was then noticed that her teeth were in need of a dental and she had foul smelling breath. She ended up having 2 teeth extracted also.
Taki the cat has had a blood draw and chemistry panel done to find out why she isn't using her litterbox.
Tootsie the little Rat Terrier had a dental done. Now she is living in a loving home.
Mitsy came to CCHS with eye issues and a scraping of her eye was done. She has now been treated and feeling much better!
I had numerous tumors popping up on my body. The CCHS Bibi Fund helped pay for cytology and needle aspirations to make sure the tumors were benign.
The Bibi Fund paid for x-rays to determine the extent of damage in Bronco’s knees and legs. We discovered his pain was immense and we did everything we could for him.
I came to CCHS one stormy winter day. The staff are great at the shelter and they loved me during my recovery there. I also had a tumor on my belly that needed to be removed. Thanks to the Bibi Fund, I am now in a wonderful home!
I came to CCHS with a degloved tail. The Bibi Fund paid for Iggy's tail to be amputated. Iggy is now in a forever home!
Sally came to CCHS with so many tumors. She had tumors upon tumors that hung to the ground. With such a great personality, we decided to have the tumors tested to see if they were cancerous. Sadly, they were cancerous and our vet recommend euthanizing Sally so she did not have to suffer.
I was a younger English Bulldog who came to CCHS with a tail that interfered with me going to the bathroom. The tail curved downward and blocked my anus. Thanks to the Bibi Fund, I was able to have the tail docked and my new owners won’t have to endure the surgery later in life.
I was a 9 year old Labrador Retriever who ended up at CCHS. My previous owner did not take care of my ear problems and thanks to the Bibi Fund, I was able to have my ears flushed and cleaned. I am now pain free.
The following dogs have benefited from additional training at Mighty Mutt K-9 College:
Domino – (Domino is now in a forever home!)
Dentals are not routinely done on animals at CCHS as we do not have the funds to support that. The following dogs had horrible teeth and were lucky enough to benefit from a dental through the Bibi Fund:
Hi, my name is Godiva. The shelter director at CCHS rescued me from another shelter where my fate was uncertain. After coming to CCHS, they discovered I was heartworm positive. Oh no, somebody did not take care of me and give me monthly heartworm preventive pills. The staff also discovered I had a mammary tumor. I should tell you a little about myself. I am a perfect dog! I love everyone! I am also very sweet. The staff and volunteers have just fallen in love with my personality. Who couldn't? Anyway, I had the tumor bioposied recently, thanks to the Bibi Fund, and the results came back benign. Yeah! I can now start heartworm treatment and then I can go to a forever home.
Thanks to the generous people who donated to the Bibi Fund! You gave me a second chance in life!!!!
Lucky is a very Lucky dog! His foster mom soon realized after she took him home that he had a lump on his rear leg. His Vet recommended it be removed and biopsied. Thanks to the Bibi Fund we have money to give extra care like this that will improve his quality of life. We are grateful that Lucky's foster mom noticed the lump as it was cancerous and has now been removed. Lucky's Vet believes he has removed everything and his future is great! Thank you very much Bibi Fund!
