Dr. Steven Hansen Practices What He Preaches
AHS' very own CEO & President, Dr. Steven Hansen, opened his home to a pregnant, homeless dog named Lucy. After a few weeks of care where she was given a comfortable, calm place to rest, Lucy gave birth to a happy, healthy litter of five puppies right in Dr. Hansen's home. Hear all about Dr. Hansen's experience below.
"Last week, my family opened our home to a pregnant Cairn Terrier named Lucy so she could have a comfortable space to deliver her five puppies. Some of you have asked, why did you choose to foster Lucy? Quite simply, we believed it was the right thing to do. We felt Lucy would be a good fit with our pets at home and we were confident our family could play an important role in fulfilling AHS’ belief that every pet deserves a good life. It was a remarkable experience, and I was so impressed with the support our Alternative Placement and medical teams provided along the way.Together, we’re saving more lives than ever before."
