CAHS Rescues 2 Dogs injured by Porcupine Quills

Jorgia and GusOn Saturday, February 22 Animal Control Officer Betty Holmes brought two young Boxer/Pit Bull dogs to the shelter. They were found running at large and were covered in quills. After a search for emergency veterinary help, Dr. Jaux De came late that afternoon, and assisted by staff Emily Andrews and Steffi Labbe had pulled 500 quills in all over the 4-hours it took to complete the surgery.

After an online search with the help of local media and Granite State Dog Recovery the shelter was able to get the animals’ vaccination records and get them surrendered to the shelter. They will be in the shelter’s care until they are recovered enough to be spayed and neutered and will then go up for adoption. Jorgia and Gus are litter mates and are very gentle, loving dogs. We need help to cover their medical expenses, so if you can help please call the shelter at (603) 447-5605 or go to our online donation site.
