Medical Care for Brooks

Raised by 423 people in 20 days

Meet Brooks, Suffield Animal Control’s newest and sweetest family member!! He was found tied to a tree and left to die overnight in a snow storm. He had many signs of neglect, but it wasn’t until we brought him to the vet that we found out how much medical care he really needed. Brooks was completely shaved due to his severely matted hair, he had a large tumor growing on his back leg along with cuts on his back legs caused from the leash being tangled around cutting off the circulation, a severe ear infection, teeth that are infected and needing extraction. We are having his tumor removed and tested for cancer asap.


Unfortunately, the Suffield Dog Pound is given a small budget for any medical needs that arise throughout the year for the dogs at the pound. 

Myself and the other volunteers that help take care of the dogs on a daily basis decided it’s time to ask the public for help!  If Brooks’ story struck a chord with you, any donation amount will help pay off the medical bills for his recovery! Every cent of the donations that are left over (after making sure Brooks gets a clean bill of health) will be put towards any future dogs who come to us and need medical attention.

As a volunteer to the Suffield Dog pound for the past 3 years, our number one priority is making sure these dogs understand that they are loved and they can trust humans. We will do everything in our power to make sure we find the most PERFECT loving FOREVER home for them. We will not stop fighting for Justice for these animals who are left behind like they are worthless. 

Brooks will be available for adoption once he is cleared by the Vet. Please follow the Suffield Animal Control Facebook Page for updates.

Thank you in advance for any donations.

With love,

The Suffield Animal Control Volunteers

The Volunteers at Suffield/East Granby Animal Shelter wanted to reach out and say THANK YOU to every single person who donated, from the bottom of our hearts. Brooks’ story has been spread nationwide and because of all of the generous and kind people who donated we surpassed our goal!

With everyone’s generous donations, he is able to start getting all of the treatment that Brooks needs prior to being placed up for adoption!

He has been groomed and no longer is being weighed down by his severely matted coat. He is one happy boy now!! Today the large tumor on his leg was removed and he is on the mend, samples will be taken for further testing. As we were leaving the vet today he was on his way in for oral surgery. He had severely rotted teeth, which unfortunately meant he needed several teeth extracted, but we told him his smile is still going to be the MOST handsome!! He’s been receiving medical treatment for a severe ear infection. And blood samples have been taken and have come back with more than favorable results!

Brooks loves people, dogs, and cats! There isn’t a person or animal he’s met that he doesn’t love. He’s found his favorite spot on his comforter and made himself his own throne inside the vets’ office. He is getting lots of love and attention from everyone at the vet!

Any excess donations remaining after Brooks’ medical care is paid for will help to better the lives for future abandoned dogs at the Suffield/East Granby Animal Shelter, you have no idea how much your donations are appreciated. Thank you, everyone, for your continued support!

I will do my best to keep this page updated periodically. I will make sure that everyone will know when he’s ready to go to his forever home.

With love and appreciation,
Suffield/East Granby Animal Shelter
