Over the weekend, our lifesaving TLC Program made headlines with SNN News. The "TLC program backed by HSSC" is a program that benefits pets with special needs that will require lifelong, routine medical care after they are adopted from HSSC. Our medical director will establish a treatment plan for the animals in the program and HSSC will offer adopters a care plan at the HSSC Animal Clinic, which provides quality, comprehensive veterinary care.
"It truly is a gift, to the animals and to anyone looking to adopt them. Adopting a dog especially one with lifetime conditions can be very expensive and a huge undertaking as I said, so the program does offer the opportunity to just honestly follow your heart and adopt a dog that you fell in love with on the website or when you're visiting a shelter, or when you're fostering and not have to worry so much about the finances," said Savannah Samberg who adopted 'Berkley'.SNN News, 2021
Berkley was rescued during Operation Senior Saved. When Berkley arrived, he had severe heartworm disease. Being left untreated for so long caused irreversible heart damage. After a long and hard round of heartworm treatment, Berkley's foster mom decided he would make a great addition to her family. Berkley will have lifelong heart medication and thoracic radiographs.
