Kenmore Animal Hospital recently launched PAWS for a Cause, a program dedicated to providing consistent, proactive health care throughout a pet’s life stage, while also giving back to the pets of the community.

The hospital partnered with Sadie’s Safe Harbor Canine Rescue. Little did it know that within a few short months of launching the program, it would be doing more than covering the cost of food and vaccines. It would be saving the life of one spunky fighter, according to a press release.

Remi, formerly known as Pippy, and her siblings were picked up by a fisherman on a riverbank in Texas. The puppies were abandoned and in need of veterinary care.

According to the release, a fisherman brought the dogs to a local vet, and after a thorough exam, it was determined that Remi’s leg was severely broken and would need to be amputated if she wanted any chance to recover.

Sadie’s Safe Harbor Canine Rescue, a foster organization based out of Springville — had found someone willing to take on a special-needs pet.

Once details were finalized, Remi boarded a plane for Western New York, where she was brought to a foster home where she had access to the follow-up care needed to make a full recovery, the release said.

Remi has become the first recipient of Kenmore’s first Pet Annual Wellness Donation from its PAWS for a Cause program. According to the release, Remi will now have a year’s worth of care covered for her at the hospital.

Additionally, the puppy will soon be volunteering with her new mom to help people who are disabled. For more information, visit www.kenmoreanimalhospital.com.
