Remy sick web

After such remarkable progress in recovering from wounds after being shot 6 times near Avon at the end of February, it breaks our heart to let you know that Remy took a turn for the worse and sadly died on Monday, April 11th.  On Thursday night, April 7th, he started having seizures and was taken to the local emergency clinic. He was sedated to get the seizures to stop, but as soon as the sedation would start to wear off they would start all over again.  He was seen by 3 vets locally and the recommendation was to have him seen by the neurology department at the U of M Veterinary Medical Clinic.  He was sent to the U of MN on Monday and died shortly upon arrival.  They will be performing an necropsy to determine the exact cause of death.  In the meantime, your thoughts are prayers are appreciated for all of those whose lives Remy touched.

A $1550 reward is being offered for information leading to identify of the person or person’s responsible for the abuse of this animal. If you have information about this crime please contact the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office at (320) 251-4250 or CrimeStoppers at (320) 255-1301 or 1(800) 255-1301.

Trixie webI'm Trixie, also known as Trixie Bear or Good Girl.  I came a long way to be able to find my forever home. I first started in Pasadena, California where I was enjoying the warm weather. Before I knew it, I was on a plane with my closest friends from the Pasadena Shelter and on my way to Saint Cloud, Minnesota. I was in the Tri-County Humane Society for a little under a week before I found my new parents. Life is great! I'm getting over my fear of men, and although it took me a little while to get used to my new family, I sure do love them now! Some of my favorite things are sleeping, snuggling up in warm blankets, playing with my favorite elephant toy, walking across my mom's laptop while she's working, and of course munching on treats! I am so thankful for all the love and help Tri County Humane Society gave me.
