Mabel

In July of 2010, Mabel was a 3 month old pit bull mix with a serious case of non-contagious mange that her owners didn’t want to treat.  She made headlines in all the local newspapers when she and another pit bull with mange named Rocky were stolen from the shelter.  They were recovered after a reward was offered. Rocky was adopted quickly. Little Mabel developed a case of pneumonia after her big adventure and was in ICU with us for a long time as she recovered. During all of this someone asked me about the extraordinary effort EVHS went to “just to get these two mangy pit bulls back….Why does the shelter care so much?” I know that you can answer that as well as I can.

Mabel eventually completely recovered and was adopted by a wonderful family in Santa Fe.

Occasionally
we
have
animals
with
medical
situations
that
require
a
little
more
love
and
attention.
Our
“Make
a
Difference”
program
provides
veterinary
care
and
fostering
during
recovery,
giving
these
animals
a
second
chance
to
be
wonderful
companions.
You
may
have
already
heard
about
Mabel
(used
to
be
“Moe”
-­?
but
that
rhymes
with
“no”
and
well,
she’s
a
pretty
little
girl)….
Mabel
is
a
3
month
old
pit
bull
mix
with
a
serious
case
of
non-­?contagious
mange.
She
and
another
pit
bull
with
mange
named
Rocky
were
stolen
from
the
shelter,
but
then
were
recovered
after
a
reward
was
offered.
Rocky
was
adopted
and
is
being
treated
with
the
new
owner
thanks
to
the
MAD
fund.
Little
Mabel
developed
a
case
of
pneumonia
after
her
big
adventure
and
is
in
ICU
with
us.
Someone
asked
me
two
days
ago
about
the
extraordinary
effort
EVHS
went
to
get
these
two
mangy
pit
bulls
back….
“Why
does
the
shelter
care
so
much?”
I
know
that
you
can
answer
that
as
well
as
I
can.
Mabel
will
need
3
to
4
weeks
treatment
past
her
recovery
from
pneumonia
to
be
treated
for
mange.
Then,
of
course,
she’ll
need
a
forever
home.
