Summer to Save Lives: Injured German Shepherd Rescued from Tether

Written by: Kimberly Ring

Paws was Found Tied Up Outside, Without Access to Water or Shelter.

Paws' story could have easily ended tragically had she not been rescued by AHS' Emergency Animal Medical Technicians™. [caption id="attachment_43169" align="alignright" width="300"]injured-german-shepherd Paws[/caption] The 3-year-old German Shepherd was taken to our Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™ where our medical team discovered a painful injury to her front leg, in which bone was exposed. Our skilled veterinarians tended to Paws’ injury and she spent several weeks recovering in our trauma hospital before moving into the home of one of our caring foster heroes. After more than a month of love and care in her foster hero home, Paws is now enjoying a second chance at life with a new family in Phoenix. This summer, we're continuing to transform Maricopa County into one of the best places to be a pet, with a mission to make happy "after" stories for thousands of "before" pets like Paws. So, what's the true story between "before" and "after"? Harrowing rescue, cruelty investigation, advanced medical treatment, tender care, lots of love... and YOU. Yours donations put tails back where they belong and bring pets back from death's door. We're on a mission to save pets this summer. Will you help?
