Gala is a 18 month old black tri female. She is 20 inches tall and weighs 38lbs. She came to ARPH as a 5 week old puppy (along with her mom and brother who have been adopted). In the time she has been with ARPH she has learned a lot. Gala is crate trained, housebroken, been through manners classes, taken some agility lessons, is doing nosework, loves disc and fetch, is crazy about dock jumping, and has been exposed to sheep. She is smart, learns quickly, is biddable, and is fast! She can go all day but she also has an off switch.
Unfortunately she had a bizarre accident and surgery was her only option. She was running and playing with the aussie in her foster home. She unfortunately mistimed one of her spin moves and crashed into a pole. She has fractured at least two vertebrae, has a damaged disc and must have surgery to fix the damage and stabilize her back so that the fracture can heal.
As you can imagine back surgery by a board certified neurologist is not cheap. Gala is a lovely, smart young aussie that can bounce back from this surgery and have a long and wonderful life ahead of her and thanks to ARPH she has that chance.

Kiitos ARPH #13584
Kiitos is a 9 year old red merle male that is an easy going guy that loves everyone he meets. He recently was diagnosed with a corneal ulcer. Corneal ulcers can be very serious, are painful and require immediate treatment. Kiitos is undergoing treatment from a veterinary ophthalmologist which includes multiple eye drops given several times a day, as well as pain and anti-inflammatory medications by mouth. Sometimes additional procedures are required to help the ulcers heal. All of the medications and procedures are expensive, but are necessary to heal the ulcer and prevent blindness.
Kiitos is a total sweetheart – he allows all those drops to be put in his eye and never complains. Kiitos and all of ARPH would appreciate any donation (no matter how small) to help cover the cost of his treatments. If the funds are not used for Kiitos they will be used for the next dog in need.
