DEAR OLD DOGS DESERVE A CHANCE… NOT LIFE AND DEATH ON A CHAIN.
Chance had to LEARN to eat like this!
This dear old boy spent his life, possibly ten years, on a lonely chain in a dirty yard, brutally cold in Winter and scorching heat in Summer. He howled at night for most of those years. Did anyone care? No one did anything until an AAS rescuer did.
He has been named “Chance” because at last he is getting a chance at happiness and health – thanks to the rescuer and the wonderful AAS supporters!
AAS immediately had Chance examined by a vet and had a geriatric blood panel, fecal specimen and urinalysis done. According to the vet these tests showed he was starving!!! This may account for his anemia and mildly elevated liver enzymes. He’s now on a high-quality gastro diet which he is taking to well. In a few weeks the blood work will have to repeated to see if regular eating has improved some of the original findings. Thankfully his teeth and gums are in good condition.
Can you take over the care of Chance? He’d be happiest in a home with only playful female dogs, without many stairs, where he’s seldom alone, with a dog-door would be extra nice too so he can go in and out at night (he doesn’t like having “accidents”). If necessary, AAS can share expenses with you (vet, surgery and food).
Please make a donation for Chance. If he stays in his foster home we are committed to all his expenses for the rest of his life.

There has been such a flood of appeals for help this year that we may not be able to reply very quickly or at all to more appeals. AAS is now so well-known for its experience in all animal welfare and rescue matters that we are asked for advice and help from all over BC, Canada, the U.S. and the world. For years I have answered each and every appeal with detailed advice that I have learned from 20 years of rescue and advocacy. Our high standards are well-known to the public, that is why we are so often asked for help and advice.
We are currently working on so many projects that I am sorry to have to say that we may not be able to help you with your rescue and/or your personal bills.
