BC SPCA South Okanagan/Similkameen Branch manager Corinne Ross says they’re always there for the shelters and are always willing to help. ‘They’re incredibly supportive of what we do at the SPCA. They’ve even adopted cats from us and a number of them have become office cats at their vet hospital. They do so much for us, at discounted rates or even for free. They’re great with helping us make a decision on how to care for an animal and fantastic with follow-up visits.”

“This poor, sweet girl deserves to experience better quality of life,” says Vernon branch manager Corinne Ross. “She looks like she’s only three or four years old and is a very adoptable little girl who needs a loving home.”

Dr. Oz of Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital in West Kelowna offered to perform the surgery for free. Vernon branch manager Corinne Ross, says she was overwhelmed when Dr. Oz offered to do the surgery. “We took her to him today, and she is currently still in the procedure, but is expected to make a full recovery.”

Kassidy has also been reunited with her puppies, they are all at the clinic as one big happy family. Ross says while the puppies were dehydrated and approximately 13-days-old, they were in good health and took to Kassidy right away. “They are nursing from her and that is great news.”

Surgery For Skully

A sweet young English girl is looking for the help of a Kelowna family. Skully, a two-and-a-half-year-old English mastiff-shepherd cross, is about to undergo critical surgery on one of her legs this week, and desperately needs a foster home in either Kelowna or West Kelowna to help her on the road to recovery.

Dr. Oz at Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital has once again offered his services like he so often does to help animals in need and will perform the surgery for free. However, Skully who was surrendered to the Vernon and District BC SPCA last weekend needs a foster guardian or family capable of giving her the care she needs.

According to Chelsea Taylor, the manager of the Vernon and District Branch, a foster will need to be available most of the time. “She’ll need to be taken out for bathroom breaks, with a sling at first. She’s okay with cats and grew up around young children, but we’d prefer no other dogs or young children or stairs in the foster home if possible, as her activity level has to be zero.”

Welcoming Wildlife

A small fawn, abandoned by its mother after it broke its leg, is now in the care of Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital. Dr. Moshe Oz who, time and time again, steps up to help animals free of charge, has offered his services to try and help the new born fawn. However, the fawn’s leg is badly broken and will need to be amputated.

“It will be a big surgery to amputate the leg, as it is a dry fracture and cannot be reconnected,” says Dr. Oz. The fawn was brought to Dr. Oz by Anne Seeley, whose husband found the small deer huddled away in their backyard in Kaleden.

“I tried calling everywhere to see if someone would take the poor thing after the mother had abandoned it,” explains Seeley. “The fawn was part of twins, but couldn’t keep up.” After several phone calls to different veterinary clinics and wildlife reserves, she was told to call conservation and have the deer euthanized.

“I couldn’t do that, she was so tiny and had these big eyes that looked up at me, it was just so sweet.” Finally, Seeley was told by one clinic to try Rose Valley, as Dr. Oz might be able to help.
