No time for a gem today. We have a 1-2 year old female hit by car victim, seen running on the Congress Pkwy which is a major expressway near Chicago. She was bloody, with no collar or tags. (There was also no microchip.) We have named her “Emmie”.
Small Pawsers Tom and Kathy MacPherson were
already at the shelter, picking up an owner
surrender Bichon Mix, (see below for picture)
for Small Paws when a Bichon who had been
hit by a car came in. The shelter’s vet sutured
and wrapped her bleeding shoulder, inserted
a catheter, and sent her on with us to the
Emmie looked like she really needed an emergency
hospital and soon.
Here she is being rushed to emergency in
Kathy’s arms while her husband Tom, drove.
She is presently receiving emergency care at the:
Animal Care Center of Plainfield
14411 S. Rt. 59
Plainfield, IL 60544
Happy New Year to all!
As you know, we always continue to take in Bichons and Bichon Mixes during the Holidays. This year was no exception.
There were two owner surrenders in Florida, one shelter bichon in South Texas and two more in Chicago.
“Bernie”, a 2-4 year old owner,
surrendered to the CACC shelter ON CHRISTMAS
DAY, was taken in today by Small Paws.
See the white on him? That’s Bichon through
and through. I think the black is poodle.
I’ll ask him later if he remembers Mom or
Thank God Tom and Kathy were there when Emmie was brought in, after having been hit by a car on an expressway.
I’m waiting on an estimate for Emmie while they are getting her stabilized. I just authorized xrays, bloodwork, and three days at the ER.
Bernie’s vetting will be around $800.00 with quarantine and normal vetting if nothing else is wrong.
I’m waiting for an official estimate for Emmie but I can tell you it’s probably going to run around $3000.00 before it’s all said and done.
I’m here and will issue all matching donation challenges.
Happy New Year! All My Love, Robin

When I first saw this beautiful picture of Cheri Sisco’s “Humphrey”, I thought it was truly the epitome of what we do, and why we do it. I wanted to use this black and white picture of Humphrey, taken only days before his death due to congestive heart failure, to let those who may be new to Small Paws, know what we do and why we do it. Without Small Paws, Humphrey would have never known love. He would have died in a kill shelter, sick and alone. Because of Small Paws, and Cheri Sisco, he lived, he loved, and he smiled.
