As the director of communications at UAN, I'm always looking for a good story. Something that will let you, our supporters, know how much we care about the animals and how hard we work to bring them out of crisis situations.
When EARS Southern California State Coordinator Norma Rodriguez arrived at “Camp Reno” a few days ago she noticed that Moe, a male Dalmatian and Pointer mix, was not eating much. We explained that he had not been feeling well and that Dr. Landon of the Nevada Humane Society had given him a prescription of antibiotics for a possible infection. He was perking up some, but still not eating very much.
We continue to get good reports on the dogs from Shannon Asquith, director of field services, and the EARS volunteer team. Perhaps one of the best success stories they've shared so far is about Maggie.
EARS volunteers awoke this morning to five inches of fresh snow, with more still falling! Although all of the current EARS volunteers are from the Sacramento, California area and not used to driving in snow, we all made it safely to the shelter. Thank goodness for four-wheel drive!
