Emmy a young terrier mix Emmy came to the Colusa County Animal Shelter neglected: She was 2 months old, dehydrated and skinny, with a dislocated hip. She needed IV fluids, x-rays, and her puppy shots. UC Davis agreed to do a femoral head ostectomy (FHO) which allowed her to regain her abilty to walk. She gained weight and was doing very well! Unfortunately, Emmy injured her leg while playing and requires another surgery to repair her crutiate ligament. Once healed completely, Emmy will be availble for adoption by a forever family who recognizes how special she is. FOCCAS is currently accepting donations to defray the cost of Emmy's second surgery. Contact FOCCAS President Chris Jacobs to make a donation (text 530-526-9258, email, or mail PO Box 858, Maxwell, CA 95955).
