Sheltie Rescue of Utah
It's just the most amazing thing to love a dog, isn't it? It makes our relationships with people seem as boring as a bowl of oatmeal.
The mission of Sheltie Rescue of Utah is to provide care and shelter for homeless Shetland Sheepdogs, also known as Shelties, placing them into loving, well-matched, forever homes, thereby preventing the needless euthanasia of any Sheltie. Sheltie Rescue of Utah accepts any Sheltie, at any age, and in any condition. Seniors who aren’t adopted live out their lives loved and cared for, with an appropriately matched volunteer family. Shelties not well enough to be adopted are provided with hospice care with as much comfort and love as possible, while maintaining a good quality of life.
Digestive upset, which oftentimes manifests in bouts of diarrhea, is a common problem for so many dogs, especially dogs that experience stressful living situations such as being homeless and entering shelter and rescue situations; senior dogs are also more likely to have digestive troubles. You can help the Shelties being cared for by the amazing volunteers at the Sheltie Rescue of Utah today. When you donate $3 the rescue will receive a bottle of IntelliFlora which retails at $14.99. IntelliFlora is a nutritional supplement especially designed for the dietary management of dogs with diarrhea; it has been proven to promote intestinal health as well as healthy immune system functioning.
All of the Sheltie dogs being cared for by Sheltie Rescue of Utah receive comprehensive medical care, depending upon need, starting with a veterinary evaluation, comprehensive blood panels for 5 year-olds and older, spaying and neutering, vaccinations, worming, heartworm testing followed by a preventative, and dentals. All Shelties are micro chipped before being adopted.
The ultimate goal of Sheltie Rescue of Utah is to ensure that all "homeless Shelties", many of whom have been badly neglected, abused, or abandoned by the people they loved, are placed in nurturing environments that are supportive of each dog’s particular physical and emotional needs, as a very special four-legged member of the family, where they will recover, thrive, and enjoy being spoiled.
