Your support will help deliver veterinary care to sick, injured and vulnerable animals like Mary Puppins this Autumn.
When Mary Puppins first came to Lort Smith she was cowering under a desk, petrified of people and dogs. With gentle encouragement and diligent work from the animal behaviourists at Lort Smith, Mary Puppins blossomed into a gorgeously goofy girl, full of personality.
Just as life seemed to be looking up for Mary Puppins, she got very sick.
She was rushed to the Lort Smith Animal Hospital where they found an obstruction in her intestines. Expert vets and nurses worked quickly to remove the object but it had already caused severe damage. Mary was still in grave danger of contracting serious illnesses like sepsis and aspiration pneumonia. She was kept under diligent watch throughout her recovery and monitored by equipment that would alert the team to any changes.
Thanks to the care and expertise of Lort Smith, from the animal welfare officers and foster carers, to the vets and nurses at the Animal Hospital in North Melbourne, Mary Puppins got a second chance at life. Today she is the picture of good health and is adored by the staff and volunteers who care for her.
Lort Smith is a not-for-profit organisation that receives no ongoing government funding. With support from the community it serves, Lort Smith provides essential veterinary care through our Animal Hospitals, and supports animal welfare through our Adoption Centre and Community Outreach programs. Lort Smith is for everyone.
