Rescue Animals, Pet Shop Dogs and ... a Bengal Tiger: Some of CAPS' Efforts and Accomplishments for 2002


Hershey: CAPS rescued Hershey, an 18-month-old Pomeranian-Dachshund from the Wee facility in Minnesota. This shy, fearful dog was very matted. His feet were encrusted with feces. Hershey has a wonderful new home.


Blondie: We rescued Blondie, a Chihuahua, during an investigation of puppy mills that deal with Shake A Paw. Blondie had scarred, swollen feet, sores, missing fur, gum disease, infected ears, and a red, swollen chest. She has a new home.
