Ocoee the lucky dog update
Ocoee Update: Ocoee completed his heartworm treatment last week at Community Animal Hospital. His skin issue is completely resolved, and his fur has grown back. All but $54 of his veterinary bill was provided by compassionate private donors!
When I picked Ocoee up yesterday morning at Community Animal Hospital, he was eager to make the transition to the next chapter in his new life. "He's such a happy and curious dog!" the staff remarked. He sat by me in the front passenger seat and looked over at other drivers with a big smile as if to say, "Hey, look at me now!" After arriving at the new Ark Adoption Center, Ocoee quickly learned to sit, and made friends with the other dogs available for adoption. While on kennel rest the past month he was neutered, vaccinated, and is already housebroken.
Ocoee can be adopted during regular Ark Adoption Center hours. Thanks to the compassionate donors, who made Ocoee's catastrophic veterinary care, a life saving dream come true for him!
