SA Humane Society Success Stories
The San Antonio Humane Society would like to thank all its supporters who share the love by volunteering, donating, and adopting to help make life better for homeless companion animals.
"On October 17, 2007, I went to the San Antonio Humane Society because I had heard about their "Wacky Cat Wednesdays" promotion - an adoption program lowering the adoption fee for adult & senior cats, and wanted to check out the available cats. I immediately fell in love with a 7 year old snowshoe Siamese named Harley (who we later renamed Harvey) and after filling out adoption paperwork, he was headed home with me!
Over the past several years Harvey has brought much joy and laughter into our home, but last September (2012) his behavior drastically changed. We knew something was wrong and immediately took him to our veterinarian who diagnosed him with diabetes. The vet broke the news to us, telling us treatment would be very expensive and time consuming and offered us the alternative option to put him down (which wasn't even an option for us!). Harvey had given us so much that we were willing to make sacrifices to give him a fighting chance. Harvey pulled through and his blood sugar is now stable and maintained with daily insulin injections and prescription food. I am also proud to announce that Harvey celebrated his 13th birthday with us yesterday (February 18, 2013)! Thank you San Antonio Humane Society for all that you do giving wonderful, older pets like Harvey another chance at life!
