So today I am leaving the world of Unitech… sort of… and introducing you to Pippin and Medical Animals in Need. I say ‘sort of’ leaving Unitech, because anyone who has visited our office knows there are usually dogs there, and often they are foster pups from an organization that deserves all the publicity it can get – Medical Animals in Need, or MAIN. When we can, we foster a dog who needs time to heal from an illness or injury, most often due to neglect, and help them get ready for a forever family. MAIN is a completely volunteer organization, and does a wonderful job saving dogs from certain euthanasia. We met these people when we adopted our Snappy; you can see her story here: Sapphire, an inspirational rescue.
Pippin was recently featured on the local news. This gives an idea of of what these dogs go through and the commitment of the people that piece them back together. It takes a committed team to make this happen. It starts with the shelter staff who reach out to MAIN, the volunteers who make the rescue happen, the committed veterinarians and vet techs at Bethany Animal Hospital who piece these poor pups together and work with them until their adoptable, and the families who foster them. But the ending is the best part – a family gets to welcome one of these dogs into their home.
