Happy Tales

River: from frozen creek to warm fireside

RiverRiver was found in a frozen creek, unable to escape the icy water due to a badly fractured leg. With the help of three kind strangers, River was rescued and rushed to our Quebec Street Shelter. Unfortunately, his leg was too damaged to repair, so our veterinary team removed the limb and made sure River was comfortable while he healed.

On Nov. 28, River was waiting patiently for someone in the crowd of Black Friday shoppers at our shelter to notice him. Renee and Glenn W. had looked at several other dogs, but hadn’t found the perfect match—until one of our adoption counselors introduced them to River. “I took one look,” recalls Glenn, “and I knew he was going home with us.”
