Mason is our first case of 2018 as we commemorate the 20th anniversary of SOS-SRF. And he is the 600th Siberian we have helped!
He is 11 years old and has had a rather complicated and troubled life. He belonged to his rescuer when he was a puppy and, unhappily, she had to relinquish him for personal reasons. Years later, she discovered that Mason was malnourished with a tumour on his leg and apparently living in less than ideal conditions. Fortunately, she was able to reclaim him and have the tumour removed. He is safe.
We found this to be a very distressing case and were pleased we could help with Mason's surgery. (January 2018)
Update - River - Ohio
River was rescued in 2012 (see here) after he was attacked by coyotes and lost his lovely tail. Rebecca sent us this update in January of 2018. "He was adopted by my son and now daughter-in-law in early 2014 and will be nine next month. He is truly the sweetest, most patient husky I have ever met! We take him to all of our community events and he is always the star of show. Everyone wants to know his story and of course, we always share it. River has a buddy, Loki, who is a 15 pound, year and a half old Alaskan Klee Kai to keep him young!
"Thank you again for what you do. We, as a family, are all about adopting rescues!"
