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 April 11th.  On 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 April 11th and died shortly upon arrival. 

Remy was an exceptional dog who touched the lives of many.  Thank you to all who contributed towards his care and well-being, and special thanks to Mike and Erin Strommen for covering his U of M costs. Most importantly, thank you to Gary and Shari Snyder, Remy's foster parents, for loving him as your own pet.

Necropsy results were sent to us late in May and are as follows:   Based on his autopsy, Remington likely had either cryptogenic or idiopathic epilepsy.  The autopsy findings are most consistent with secondary damage to the brain and lungs which was most likely sustained due to the recurrent seizures.  It is possible that Remington had post traumatic epilepsy which is best characterized in humans. This is impossible to prove, but the timing of his signs

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.

Vicki and abbiDear Friends of Animals,

With your help, we’ve been able to make our Humane Society a place that cares for the animals we all love with amazing results.   You help us “fix” them in many ways.  We don’t just neuter or spay them – we fix whatever needs fixing.  That may mean figuring out what’s wrong with several tests or x-rays.  Or we may need to take care of an old injury that didn’t heal properly.  And sometimes, it’s fixing a behavior that would keep them from getting adopted.  We’re extremely grateful to you for giving us the means to fix these wonderful animals.

Right now, our need for your support is greater than ever.

The building where we care for the animals is getting old.  We’re facing major repairs – including a new roof – and we need to raise the funds to do those repairs. The last thing we want is for the building to affect the outstanding care we provide to our furry clients.   I know you don’t want that either.  Together, we have an opportunity to make great things happen for the animals while still keeping the roof from leaking into the kennel rooms.  But we need your help!
