LASSI provides veterinary care for pets at the Oceana County Animal Control Shelter, socializes them and prepares them for adoption. They pay for veterinary care including basic veterinary exams, flea and tick treatment, ear, skin and eye infections, catastrophic injury and illness such as broken bones, amputations, hip dysplasia, bladder stones, prolapsed uterus, and heartworm disease. They maintain adoption websites, hold adoption events and transport pets to new homes outside the local area. When the shelter is full, they place pets in foster homes and other shelters.
Funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization helps to pay for their senior dog health care examination expenses to give a better assessment of a dog’s condition to be able to fully inform potential adopters and to initiate veterinary treatment if necessary. This will include diagnosis and treatment of heartworm stages 1-3, dental issues, hip dysplasia, broken bones, mastitis, mammary tumors, severe eye and ear infections, hernias, malnutrition, and severe matting and skin infections as well as routine spay/neuter and diagnosis of arthritis, hearing and vision issues.
