1 Caring Hands Humane Society Critter Chronicle Issue 5 October 2017 Published Bi-Monthly A Second Chance PLUS: When Disaster Strikes: How to Pack a Go Bag for your pet! Joey made it, thanks to you! Thank you, Volunteers for summer fundraiser help! First Saturday is Bath Day!
2 A Second Chance Joey s leg was injured. Without help, he might have died. Abandoned on the outskirts of Halstead, Fonzie was left to fend for himself. When Animal Control brought him to Caring Hands Humane Society, we knew he desperately needed medical attention. Fonzie s left leg was so badly mangled it couldn t support his weight. In order to survive, he walked using three legs, while dragging the injured leg across the ground resulting in large open wounds. When Joey came to us, his leg had an awful wound. Stacie Tonn saw Fonzie on the Caring Hands website before his operation and was immediately drawn to him. From his story, she knew he would need a lot of love and care while adjusting to his new situation. Stacie reached out to our Kennel Manager and Foster Coordinator hoping to bring Fonzie home to stay with her and her daughter, Jaden. After having this spirited lab in their home for only two days, Stacie and Jaden knew that Fonzie was meant to be a permanent part of the family. They We ll never know the cause of the initial injury, but we do know that Fonzie arrived at Caring Hands just in time to prevent his wounds from becoming infected. Fonzie s leg was amputated in April, and he was placed in foster care to begin his journey to recovery and a new home. Through everything that s happened, Joey has never lost his affectionate personality and joyous outlook on life. 2
3 These days, Stacie and Joey visit retirement homes in Newton. Joey loves to interact with people and is a much beloved guest at every facility. Sadly, Joey had to have his leg removed. But the operation helped save his life. Joey came to a caring facility where he received urgently needed medical attention and found a new, loving family, but Caring Hands is more than a place. It s also a community of donors, volunteers and a dedicated staff who believe in a mission that values animals and their contribution to our community. moved forward with adoption and renamed him Joey, after a member of Jaden s favorite band. Joey has been working through months of therapy, but with his new family by his side he is steadily improving. He has gained some much needed weight, and is adjusting to life without his left leg. In the beginning, Stacie took Joey out on walks every day in a sling crafted to support his body weight and aide in balance. Now, he can walk on his own, and is taking rehabilitation swim classes twice a week. Joey is recovering well. He s learned to walk with just three legs and still bounds with energy! Your gift to Caring Hands allows animals like Joey to survive and flourish. Thank you! 3

6 When Disaster Strikes Are you prepared to care for your pet in an emergency? In the wake of hurricane Harvey, we are also recognizing National Preparedness Month (September). This is typically the time set aside for professionals to encourage their community members to be aware of potential risks for emergency situations and then to actually prepare for various types of emergencies. Preparation efforts will often peak in unaffected parts of the country as recent disaster situations are unfolding fresh in our minds and our news networks and social media are consumed with stories of devastation. Although we are now beginning October, THIS is the time to act for yourself! Please take advantage of this time to have plans for yourself, family, friends and neighbors. Then have a plan B and maybe even plan C. Within hours of deployment in Texas, even response teams have had to modify plans because circumstances changed. Our country is fortunate to have such dedicated first responders and we can help make their jobs safer by simply having go-bags ready for ourselves and our pets. Kansas State Animal Response Team Be the first to help animals in need! Volunteers are needed people like you who care about pets and their community. There are two paths available for volunteers. The Disaster Responder path trains and prepares volunteers to deploy in a disaster. The Community Volunteer path provides an avenue for volunteers with the desire to participate without deployment. It is possible to pursue both paths as a volunteer.
