Not every story at All Heart starts off great UpdateSunday, March 24, 2013 by: Kate AdamsAll Heart Pet Rescue is reporting that within 3 days of Remedy's story hitting Facebook and Baytoday the account for Remedy had hit over $1,000.
Kathy Jeanneault, owner of All Heart, says Remedy a 7 month old Border Collie mix had lived in a home with 2 agressive dogs. Sadly Remedy was the product of several dog fights.
"It was out of control and something had to be done.
A gentle soul named Steve brought Remedy to All Heart on St Patty's Day."
"Just six days later Remedy has been spayed, had all her wounds attended to, given many different medications, vaccinated and is being nursed back to health. The Baytoday readers have been very generous."
"Im very proud of the people of North Bay. Their generousity once again has made a difference in our community," Jeanneault says.
You can meet Remedy at the All Heart Open House Sunday 12-2pm at 430 Oakwood Road, Powassan.
On Monday the gang at All Heart Pet Rescue took possession of a dog that was in a bad state and in need of special attention.
"Each dog coming into my hands a special story and a special past," says Kathy Jeanneault, Animal Control Officer.
"Today we took great care with our newest dog renamed Remedy by Adam Jeanneault my son."
"Remedy is merely 7 months old and has lived a life of hell. Plain and simple. She lived with two mentally challenged owners that really shouldn't have had her."
"You see...... their two other adult dogs are very aggressive and wouldn't accept her into their pack. Remedy was brutally beaten up since she was a wee pup. Knowledge and finances just weren't there. So Remedys abrasions around her head and neck left untreated. The caked on mounds of dryed pus was gently peeled of her head and neck by Katie Baxter-Gilbertand I. Both of us pretty tough girls.... but I might add Katie for the first time in 4 years was in tears while we bathed this girl. Her right ear brutally infected, her right eye lid torn, her head massed with puncture wounds."
Jeanneault says Remedy needs a lot of care and that will require the public's financial help.
"I'm counting on everyone to dip into their pockets and send a few bucks to the vet. Not only do we have to get her in better shape. She may be pregnant as she is finishing a heat and needs to be spayed asap."
Donations can be sent to Verzilenjeberg Vet Clinic in Sundridge Ontario.
A note must be enclosed attention ALL HEART PET RESCUE- ATTENTION CANINE NAMED REMEDY. She will see the vet this week.
"Wonderfully ... after we nursed her, pushed pills, deworming and antibiotics down her throat. She wagged her tail ... was put into her kennel and proceeded to eat her supper with enthusiasm."
