1001 Donations: Anastasia’s Story
Anastasia was found in very rough shape and brought to the Winnipeg Humane Society. She had frostbitten ears and suffered trauma to her face. Her lower lip was torn and hanging off her jaw. She also had six broken teeth. It is clear Anastasia pushed through pain to survive on her own until she was rescued.
Anastasia received immediate medical attention from WHS clinic staff to relieve her pain. WHS veterinarian Dr. Johnston performed surgeries to repair Anastasia’s lip and remove her broken teeth.
After her surgeries, Anastasia went to live with a WHS foster family for two weeks to recover and to gain weight. She made a full recovery and it was no surprise that it only took Anastasia one day in adoptions to find her new forever family. Once her pain was gone, she was happy, playful, and affectionate.
There are always more animals like Anastasia in our community in need of help. Thanks to YOU, the WHS can take them in and give them the care they need to get better. Thanks to YOU, we are able to send animals into foster homes to recover from surgeries with all the supplies they need for their length of stay, like food and medication.
Our annual 1001 Donations Telethon, presented by Vickar Automotive Group, is coming up on Saturday, March 23 and we need your help to raise $60,000 so we can keep saving the lives of helpless animals in our community. These funds are essential for the WHS to care for over 8,000 animals this year.
Please make a donation today and help us reach our goal of raising $60,000. All donations up to $60,000 are being matched dollar-for-dollar by six generous donors. If we raise $60,000 that is matched to an amazing $120,000 to help more animals like Anastasia this year.
Tune in on March 23 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. as we broadcast live from the WHS on winnipeghumanesociety.ca to see your donation dollars at work. We will share stories of animals like Anastasia, 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.
We couldn’t help animals like Anastasia every day without you. Thank you so much for your support.
