SWESR was contacted about a senior emaciated ES boy. A volunteer sprung him from the shelter and took him immediately to his Vet. The Vet staff spoiled him with canned food and pill pockets while they ran tests and took x-rays. Half of his abdomen was filled with a tumor and bloodwork indicated liver cancer. After speaking with the vet it was clear helping him to the rainbow bridge was the most loving gift we could give to him. A SWESR volunteer brought him 2 cheeseburgers, cuddled on the floor on blankets the staff laid out for her, and told him how happy we were to have him in our SWESR family as he left his sick body.
