||Hailey is a
beautiful Great Pyrenees. She was living
chained up to a tree when we heard about her. As you
can see in her photo, she had a very large mammary
tumor. It was very heavy, hanging almost to
the ground when she is standing. It would
swing side to side when she walked.
very happy to be able to help Hailey. We knew
it would not be easy and that Hailey would need
extra help before and after surgery.
Thanks to our wonderful veterinarian, Hailey had
surgery on April 23. Hailey has received the
best care and this is the first step in helping
Hailey gain her health.
Hailey has a soft and gentle temperament.
Every person she meets is a friend.

RFSC's Mobile Vet Clinic...
We wanted to share a picture of our mobile spay/neuter clinic.
We recently hosted a spay/neuter clinic in Riverside. We were able to spay and neuter more than 20 dogs and cats that belonged to the homeless.
The animals were provided the much needed surgeries at no cost
in order to prevent future litters. RFSC volunteers know
that we cannot adopt our way out of the over population problem.
We are trying to do all that we can in order to be part of the
We pray for a day when all animals have a loving home.
Until then, we would be grateful for
donations to support this much needed program.
Please visit our spay/neuter page for details and to take a look at
our beautiful clinic on wheels!

Vineyard Veterinary Hospital are having an open
house on Saturday May 18 from 12:00 - 4:00 pm.
