Friends of the Shelter:Odin's Story


Odin has had a hard life. He and his two siblings were found one morning in front of Cottonwood Veterinary Clinic covered in ticks. One of the puppies was dead, and Odin and his sister were taken in by the Clinic. Friends of the Shelter decided to pay for the medical costs in order to save the two remaining puppies, and once they were deemed healthy to leave the Clinic they were taken in by Friends of the Shelter and fostered until they were old enough for their forever homes. We adopted Odin as a wedding present to ourselves and we immediately fell in love with his affectionate nature and playful attitude. 




One day, about four weeks after we adopted Odin, he started to get ill. A few days later he began stumbling when walking, and his condition has slowly gotten worse over time. He is now unable to walk or move on his own.  After five visits to our veterinarian in ten days, we still didn't have an answer as to what was wrong with Odin or how to fix it. Our vet suggested that we see a specialist, but the price of a specialist was too much for us to handle. That's when Friends of the Shelter offered to pay for the cost of the veterinary specialist.


Friends of the Shelter has gone above and beyond in helping us and Odin, and we are incredibly grateful for everything they have done. Therefore, we would like to help them raise the money they need to continue helping sick and abandoned dogs like Odin.

Friends of the Shelter's mission is to improve the welfare of homeless dogs and cats in northern New Mexico through spay/neuter programs, vet care subsidies, and education outreach.

All donations will go directly to Friends of the Shelter, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
