Tough cases come through our doors all the time. You hear about many of them, and you donate generously to help.

A sweet 1-year-old (and one-eyed) dog, aptly named Pirate, has rocked our shelter with a rare and mysterious condition that leaves him little hope for the happy ending that we provide for so many others.

So, rather than opening your wallet, would you instead open your heart and send a kind or comforting word to Pirate’s foster parents and our extraordinary animal care and medical team who have been working day and night, to help Pirate.

Send a kind word
