When Charlie Brown - an adorable four pound poodle - arrived at the SPCA of Westchester with two broken legs, he was shaking uncontrollably. He'd cry when anyone tried to show him affection. He recoiled at our touch. He was so scared.

Our staff understood why he was so traumatized...he'd been severely neglected for months and was suffering, in extreme pain. Sadly, he had to undergo emergency surgery to have one of his legs amputated as it was just too far gone to be saved. His other leg, which had previously been broken, is luckily on the mend but will take a while to heal. He will continue to need specialized veterinary care until we will feel confident that he is no longer in any pain.  

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, what better time to show your love to him and to so many other animals then by making a special gift today?
