The sad eyes are gone and caster is all smiles now. We had known Caster for awhile and had never seen him run and play until he had dental surgery! CCFAP took care of his medical expenses so he could have 8 impacted teeth and part of a necrotic jaw bone removed. He was probably in pain for many years. Caster is now living his happily ever after with a wonderful new family who loves him dearly.
This is Petey, the broken puppy. What a darling. He was in a foster home before, during, and after his surgery to repair his broken femur. At just six months old he was found with a severely broken leg. Not just broke but turned in the wrong direction. It was broken in the growth plate and required a tricky surgery but the orthopedic fixed it and saved his leg. He was adopted and moved to Orlando to be with his new family.
And the Journey Continues with many more thanks to all of your donations!

We want to thank every one of who contributed to his surgery. He is a boy that deserves to have a full life and now he will.
This little guy never felt sorry for himself though. He has an amazing spirit and a joy for living. We think Petey's new mom is perfect for him. These two redheads will be a loving pair for each other. Petey is now "Sir Michael Peter the Magnificent warrior dog!" Or "Mikey" for short.
Bentley was left in the overnight kennels at Animal Services. He was a red hot mess -- bald and itchy. He was insecure and anxious. He was fostered in a home with nine other dogs and he immediately learned how to be a confident and happy dog. Within three weeks his coat and skin were beautiful and he was adopted by a very loving family.
Holly was just a baby at 3 months old when she arrived at the shelter with a broken elbow. The break was an old one and her surgery was extremely time sensitive. CCFAP responded to the urgent plea from the animal shelter and the Orthopedic Surgeon carved out time in his busy schedule to attend to her. Holly was in a foster home while she carefully recovered. When released by the doctor she was adopted and is now living happily with another dog and a large, happy family. We are so happy to have helped this little sweetheart.
Noley had been injured long enough to have muscle wasting. Our best guess is that she was dropped or stepped on; there doesn’t seem to be injuries as if she were hit by a car. She was found wandering the streets in Inverness where she was likely put out to fend for herself. She’s a sweet little Lemon Beagle mix and only weighs 17 pounds. She’s never met a stranger and loves with all her heart. And in spite of what she’s gone through she is extremely happy, wiggly, and wagging. Thank you all for the donations that helped get Noley back to the carefree pup that she was meant to be. Noley is adopted now and her new mom loves her with all her heart.
Tee Jay arrived at the shelter with a broken leg on the 4th of July. We think he was probably running from the sound of fireworks. His owner did not come for him so CCFAP made sure he had his surgery. His surgical repair was not successful and Tee Jay's leg was amputated. It never slowed this guy down though. He adjusted well and is as feisty as ever. Tee Jay is now with a new family enjoying life.
Tyson arrived at the shelter with the largest tumor we've ever seen! CCFAP provided his medical care to remove it and we helped him get to a no-kill rescue where he was later adopted. The tumor was so heavy we were amazed at how well he coped with it and what an amazing, happy attitude he had.
Suzy Sweet Pea arrived at the shelter with broken bones after being hit by a car. Without organizations like CCFAP to take care of her medical needs, Suzy may have been put to sleep because her needs were more than animal services can provide. Thanks to donations of a caring community we were able to help her. She is living her happily ever after with a wonderful family and a canine sister.
Zander was a precious little puppy that was beaten by his owner. Thankfully, someone who knew of it brought Zander to the vet and the owner was later arrested. Zander was placed in a foster home and CCFAP ensured he had the medical care he needed. Zander was later adopted by one of the vet techs that cared for him at the vet office.
