The SPCA of Westchester is a not-for-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to saving homeless, abused and abandoned animals and to protecting animals from cruelty and neglect through education and enforcement of humane laws.
“Being able to count on having a consistent, nutritious diet each month for our dogs gives us such peace of mind as we know our dogs will stay healthy and feel their best, which makes it easier to find them their new families and homes.
Abandoned when his owner who had to move, Wrinkles was left home all alone … neglected for far too long. When a Good Samaritan finally rushed him to the SPCA of Westchester, he urgently needed veterinary care — including costly eye surgery — and is receiving medical care for severe ear infections, eye scabbing and other painful conditions that resulted from his neglect. He had hair loss and patches of skin that were raw. And yet, this sweet boy never stopped wagging his tail!
Clearly Wrinkles was not receiving a healthy diet and was very overweight. We were concerned he’d been given people food for so long that he wouldn’t accept dog food. Luckily, he loved the Halo. And the difference in his skin and hair was like night and day. He has also gotten back to a much healthier weight now!
Peanut’s story: The SPCA of Westchester’s Humane Law Enforcement (HLE) Director Ernest Lungaro has arrested Vincent Marable, who was charged with animal cruelty for confining a dog in the basement of his building without adequate food or water. The young pit bull mix, now named Peanut, was covered in filth, emaciated, dehydrated and suffered from sores all over his body as a result of flea infestation. He was so weak he could barely stand on his feet.
The Mount Vernon Animal Shelter had received an anonymous tip about the neglected animal, and immediately notified the SPCA of Westchester. The dog was brought to a veterinarian for medical attention, then transferred to the SPCA’s Simpson Clinic for evaluation, further treatment and rehabilitation.
Peanut’s before and after photo is a perfect example of the amazing effects a healthy, nutritious meals can have!”
