New Mom, Sara provided an update and more photos of the beloved shelter dog, Elvis. If you missed the story of how Elvis was adopted and became a member of Sara’s family, click here to read! (I just LOVE Elvis’ eyes!). This wonderful dog’s life was saved because of the volunteers and shelter staff at Mineral Wells Animal Shelter working together to create awareness for their shelter pets – and the power of social media! Be sure and like the shelter page!
“Just an update on Elvis. He went to the vet yesterday because I noticed he was coughing badly every day since we brought him home. He has bronchitis, an ear infection in both ears, a skin condition, and hip dysplasia. Also they found that he has a bad tooth that needs to be extracted. Poor baby. He is now on antibiotics, cough medicine, ear medicine and medicated shampoo. He will go back in 2 weeks for a follow up. Hopefully he will be all better then and can be neutered. Otherwise Elvis has a wonderful personality. He is a cuddle bug and very smart.” – Sara

It’s so wonderful to see adopted pets out of the shelter and into their new homes; pets are family! Thanks for the update, Sara! Be well, dear Elvis!
