Sadly, high-kill shelters exist, and thousands of dogs die in one every single year. Sometimes, shelters don’t have a choice. They need to either make room for new animals, or a dog is too sick or injured for them to be able to fix it.
Now and then, though, a good Samaritan comes alone, like the people at the Vet Ranch, and they save a precious life. Workers there took one look at little Ice the Husky puppy and decided to do everything they could to save him.
When Ice showed up at Vet Ranch, things did not look good for the little guy. Doctors there gave him a low chance of survival. The poor pupper had severe anemia, a horrible hookworm infestation, low blood sugar, low blood pressure, and even tested positive for Parvo.
Who knows what poor Ice must have been through before coming to the rescue, considering the shape he was in?
They knew that it would be an uphill battle, but the vets went right to work. They wanted to do everything in their power to give Baby Ice a chance at a better life.
