UPDATE: July 2012

We have good news to share: Venus has been adopted into a loving new home! Thank you to everyone who supported Venus!

UPDATE: June 2012

Venus has healed from heart surgery and spay surgery. She is now available for adoption!

UPDATE: May 2012

Venus has continued to heal after her extensive heart surgery. She has been spayed and will be available for adoption in the next few days. We will continue to keep you posted on her progress!

UPDATE: April 2012 

Venus had surgery and she is recovering under the careful monitoring of our veterinarians. The obstruction in her heart is already dramatically better. She is in medical isolation and must limit her exertion over the next few weeks, although she already would like to get out and play. She will need ongoing care and checked multiple times over the next six months to ensure that her procedure was successful. Thank you for your support of Venus and all the animals in our Help Me Heal Program. We will continue to keep you posted on her progress.

Venus's Story

At just three months old, Venus’s life is already in jeopardy. This homeless puppy has a congenital heart disease called subaortic stenosis, which is caused by a malformation of the left ventricle of the heart.

The emergency procedure needed to correct Venus's heart condition is very risky—but without it, the young pup faces a grim prognosis.

Her life expectancy would be months at best, and even during that short time, she would be extremely limited in her ability to have a normal life.

The intricate surgery that Venus desperately needs is her only hope for a healthy future, but she needs your help.

Please help Venus and other animals like her receive the treatment they need to live normal lives.
