Success Story

Samba was just a puppy and had been abandoned - failed at every level by the people who were supposed to be there for him. When we met him, we knew he had many health issues – from a skin issue to joints that weren't functioning correctly – but we saw his soul in his sad eyes. We felt his desire to live, and we knew we had to help him.

Once we got Samba in a Furkids foster home, he did so well! But in a few days, he took a turn for the worse and had to spend several days at the emergency vet. While there, Samba was diagnosed with Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy (HO), a bone disease that is very painful and difficult to treat. Samba patiently endured numerous vet visits and extensive medical treatments on his long road to recovery.

Today, we’re thrilled to say Samba is now a happy, active five-month-old puppy and is ready for his forever home!
