Special Needs Animals

Meet the newest member of team PAWS, Francisco Lindor McSnugglebuns, aka Frankie! This 4 week old baby was found by good Samaritans in East Cleveland they called PAWS for help thinking that he may have been attacked by an animal. Our Associate Director rushed over, grabbed him and drove him straight to a partner vet.  Their initial findings were that he was probably born with spina bifida because while he has mobility of his rear legs and tail, he doesn't have the muscle development needed to support his one pound frame. Frankie was covered in fleas so he was given a bath (which he hated) and then snuggled in a warm towel (which he loved) until he fell asleep.  On October 9th, Frankie began steroid medication to try and relieve any inflammation in his hindquarters and will be seen again by a PAWS partner vet this week for a more comprehensive examination. Frankie is not in pain or distress, he doesn't even seem to know that he's 'different', he just scoots along... We hope to rehabilitate Frankie and either see him regain more mobility or train to use a cart if his mobility does not improve. Just like his namesake, Francisco Lindor McSnugglebuns is a champion who doesn't give up and we are not giving up on him either.  

Miley is a was left behind when her owner went into a nursing home - found with no food or water. She had been hospitalized for severe dehydration and malnutrition among other things. She is doing much better but still has a long road ahead of her and will need a great deal of medical care. To donate, please click below. 
PAWS Ohio partnered with Ashtabula County Animal Protective League to take Harley, a beautiful one year old husky boy, who has suffered damage to his pelvis and cannot walk very well. 
We here at PAWS Ohio are dedicated at giving this boy a chance. He is resting comfortably at his foster home, and will soon be seen by a specialty vet to determine how and if we can help him. 
This organization is not giving up on him, but we need your help. It will be costly, and that is where you can help. As a non-profit your donation is tax deductible. Please donate in Harley's name, and we will make sure that every dollar goes to his recovery.
