What is the WHS “Grading System”?

Dear WHS Friends, Some of you may have heard that the WHS has implemented a “scoring system” for animals coming in. There has been some questions about what it is, so we feel it’s important to clarify what it is, and why we are doing it. The name of this initiative (“scoring”) and the fact that pets are given a score have caused concerns about WHS using this as a way to euthanize more animals based on a cold, numbers-based system. In fact, the opposite is true. We are committed to save more animals than ever before. I will try to … Continued

James doesn’t need eyes to see your love

James was found as a stray puppy who suffered severe head trauma, damaging both of his eyes. His left eye was hanging out of its socket when he arrived at the WHS, and it had been for some time. It couldn’t be saved. James’ mouth was FULL of broken baby teeth from the injury, making it too painful for him to open his mouth. Dr. Bowen, WHS Director of Veterinary Services, immediately removed James’ left eye and broken baby teeth to relieve him of pain. James undoubtedly pushed through extreme pain to survive on his own, all alone at 3-months-old. … Continued

Meatless Monday: Winter Squash and Red Lentil Soup

Post and recipe by: Angela Tucker Warm, satisfying, tasty, nutritious. Just a few of the adjectives I would use to describe this Winter Squash and Red Lentil Soup. With all this snow that appeared over the weekend here in Manitoba, who doesn’t need a little soup in their life? The internet tells me soup is basically a sweater for your tummy. So, you can’t go wrong. This recipe is a source of protein on its own, but if you were looking to bump it up I would suggest topping it with some roasted chickpeas. The squash and lentils in this … Continued
