The dogs need a clean bill of health to help them find a new home.
“Nobody adopts pets with medical needs,” Morton said. “They (the dogs) look at you with their big black eyes, knowing that their life is in your hands.”
The goal is to raise enough money to cover the expenses of both surgeries, which cost around $800 each.
RELY ON PUBLIC
Morton said any amount that people can give is greatly appreciated.
“Shelters just cannot survive without their help. There are just too many animals that need our help, especially here in this northern end of Franklin County,” she said.
“We want to stay open. We want to help all of these animals. We want to keep doing this because we love it. It’s what makes us happy, but we need to be able to fix their medical needs.”
