Max was found outside in the freezing cold with frostbite on one of his tiny toes and on his tail.
Thankfully his finder noticed him outside in their yard, caught him, and brought him to the Winnipeg Humane Society. Max needed surgery to remove his frozen toe and the tip of his tail so he could live pain free. Our clinic staff noticed he was very socialized, which means he was likely someone’s pet before getting lost.
After his surgery, Max spent time in recovery at the WHS until he could go into adoptions. Once in adoptions, he quickly found his forever family. Max got a second chance to live the life he deserves.
At the WHS, every animal matters – no matter their size. We have a place for every animal in need. We accept the abandoned, surrendered, stray, and neglected. It is our reputation and duty as an open admission shelter to receive animals that have nowhere else to go and nurture them until they find a forever home.
There are always more animals just like Max at the WHS that need your help.
Our annual 1001 Donations Telethon, presented by Liberty Tax Service, is coming up on Saturday, March 25 and we need your help to raise $40,000 so we can keep saving the lives of helpless animals in our community. These funds are essential for the WHS as our community of both people and animals rely on us and deserve the very best we can be.
Please make a donation today and help us reach our goal of $40,000. All donations are being matched by seven generous donors, so your gift will make even more impact for an animal in need of care at the WHS, just like Max.
On March 25 from 11AM-5PM, we will broadcast live from the WHS on Facebook Live (WHS Facebook page), Shaw TV Channel 9, QX104, and 94.3 The Drive. Please join us as we share stories of animals like Max, along with WHS volunteers and staff who work tirelessly to make sure every animal gets a second chance to live a happy and healthy life it deserves.
Thank you for your support and generosity.
