Rest in peace, Jilly

Jilly passed away last night in his sleep. Jilly was well cared for and loved by the rescue center staff and volunteers in the last few months of his life. Before he passed away, he had a good dinner and was in good spirits. Rest in peace, Jilly. We miss you.
Jilly was rescued from a car accident at Songjiang Road with multiple leg wounds. The vet estimates that Jilly is atleast 20 years old. Because of his old age, his teeth are extremely bad and will need to be pulled out. Jilly also has a very big hole in his mouth. He is now staying at the AT rescue center receiving special care. Jilly can no longer walk because of his age, so the center staff use a special harness to pick him up everyday to help him exercise and go to the bathroom.

AL 's happy new life

Al was suffering from canine distemper. He almost died, but he did his best not to let us down. Although he recovered from distemper, his brain was already injured by the disease, causing him to not walk properly. It really affected the chance for his adoption. But luckily, Faye, one of the very important people of Animals Taiwan, adopted Al last year. Al, who is now called Sal, has a very beautiful life now thanks to Faye's kind heart. I went to see Al at the end of last year, and my eyes filled with tears. This dog was no longer Al, he was now Sal. He was now a very happy, confident, strong dog. I can see how much love Faye gives him.

This is a letter written by Faye about Sal.
Sal ( Al) is doing extremely well. He's the funniest little guy. He has now learned to chase balls and can run after them in our yard. Problem is, he won't return them. Sal also likes to chase the other dogs, especially those who are smaller than he. He laughs all the time and wags his tail practically every minute. I really love that dog as does everyone else. What a personality.

Caramel's big sugery

Hi! do you remember our plump , cute Caramel ?

Caramel has already been fostered for almost a year. The love from her foster mom makes Caramel more beautiful. It is just like she is living in heaven now.

Caramel was rescued because her pudendum was out of her body. She couldn't pee by herself. She went through 2 very big pudendum surgeries but the problem was still there. Caramel couldn't control her pee so she leaked all the time and everywhere.

After consulting a lot people and going through a lot of reports, Caramel's foster mom, HsinYing, found a very professional vet in this field.

Caramel just underwent another big surgery. Thanks so much to foster mom HsinYing and her whole family for giving Caramel such wonderful care.

Before the surgery, Caramel suddenly kept having blood in her pee. HsinYing worried so much she even postponed the sugery to treat the bloody pee problem. Fortunatly, the blood problem got better after the treatment.

The sugery was sucessful. But the leaking pee problem still remains. The vet took the broken tissue from her bladder, which caused the constant infection. Caramel feels much better now.

But a comfortable life is still far for Caramel to go. Let's give Caramel our best wishes.

The below was written by foster mom HsinYing.

I wonder, is she too great or too blunt, this cute little baby? She still tries to steal food at every chance, glowing with joy, her face illuminated, and her nose always wet. Her nice personality gains every one's love. She always has a big smile whenever we visit the vet. Every vet and the staff say that Caramel is a very good girl. But when she is put on the examining table, she immediately becomes very serious, hiding her tail, shaking her legs... as if it were another dog there.
