The Second Chance Fund has been a part of many great success stories over the years. While we would love to feature each and every one, we're happy to say that there are just too many to post! Here are a few stories to help give you an idea of just what The Second Chance Fund is all about.
Hi my name is Barney. I am a friendly, lovable, one year old stray kitty who was found caught in wire fence. In my efforts to free myself, I severely fractured my back leg. The damage to my leg was so severe that the the only option to save me was to amputate my leg. I was admitted into The Second Chance Fund and underwent the extensive surgery provided by the doctors at Lodi Veterinary Care. I recovering nicely and bravely adapted to my amputation. I found a home with another SCF kitty named Henry and we both have adjusted well to our new family!
Hi, my name is Stewie. I am young, energetic Pitbull mix that needed abdominal surgery due to severe gastrointestinal illness. Thankfully, due the Second Chance Fund, I was able to receive the surgery and care I needed and have made a complete recovery! I am a sweet, lovable boy who gets along with everyone I meets. I became such good friends with my foster family's other dogs that I was officially adopted by my foster family!
Hi, my name is Sully. When I came to Lodi Vet I was an 8 week old kitten who somehow managed to get a string trapped around my front leg. The string was so tight that it cut off the circulation to my leg and caused permanent damage. I was unable to walk on or move my injured leg and it was determined that the only possible treatment was to amputate my leg. I was admitted into The Second Chance where the doctors at Lodi Veterinary Care performed the delicate surgery. Through my ordeal, I remained a lovable and affectionate kitten and brought joy to all who cared for me. I have made a complete recovery and have learned to walk, run, and play on my three remaining legs! My foster family fell in love with me and decided they couldn't live without me so I am now a part of their wonderful family!
Hi, my name is Jawz. I was brought in to Lodi Veterinary Care by a good Samaritan. I am a sweet black and white tuxedo kitty that got into a fight with another animal and had bite wounds to my face and neck along with injuries to my mouth. My bite wounds had become infected which caused a fever and I also had a broken tooth which was very painful. After surgical removal of my broken tooth and antibiotics for my infections, I have made a full recovery. I was fostered by a very nice family who eventually adopted me because they couldn't live without me!
Hi, my name is Betty Davis. I was brought to LVC as a 10 week old kitten who had an adverse reaction to routine vaccinations. After it was determined that I would need extensive supportive care, my owners decided they would no longer be able to care for me and surrendered me to LVC. I was admitted into the SCF and after weeks of supportive care, I am a thriving, playful kitten. My foster family fell in love with me (and my "Betty Davis" eyes) and have officially adopted me.
Hi, my name is Craig! I was brought to LVC as an eight week old kitten after being stomped on by a milking cow. I am very sweet and purred through my entire exam despite limping badly on my right hind leg. My exam and radiographs revealed a broken pelvis and an upper respiratory infection. Treatment for this type of injury includes 6 weeks of kennel rest and since my home is a family farm, kennel rest was not an option for my family. Instead of euthanasia, my family decided to surrender me and I was accepted into to the Second Chance Fund. I stayed at LVC for 2 weeks and has since found a wonderful forever home with a family who loves me!
