Successful Spay for Simona

Simona looks like she could be right out of a fairy tale, and we are grateful that Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter could help provide her happily ever after.

After serious complications with her pregnancy, Simona was surrendered into the care of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter for urgent medical assistance. She was rushed to the veterinary hospital and vet staff determined that Simona needed an emergency spay surgery to remedy the complications. Friends quickly provided the funding for this treatment that would give Simona a fighting chance.

Simona’s case is a prime example of the risks associated with breeding and the necessity to act quickly during urgent situations such as this one. Simona spent a good deal of time recovering at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter, receiving daily pampering by her officemate and getting lots of rest. At one year-old, we knew Simona had so much more of a life to live, and we are glad that we could provide that second chance for her. Simona found her home the same day she was made available for adoption.
