Auspicious Care for Aspen

Aspen was transferred to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter from another shelter in Roanoke, VA. Upon arrival, he was determined to have a serious case of bloat, which is when a dog’s stomach fills with gas, food, or fluid and subsequently twists, creating an emergency circumstance. Situations like this are touch-and-go and are very costly, but thankfully Friends was able to fund Aspen’s almost $6,000 surgery through Finnegan’s Fund and he made a full recovery. Aspen was adopted after spending a bit of time at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter!
