Abe's Endless Ardor

Abe was brought into a local shelter after being hit by a car. Although he was limping and unable to use his right back leg, his spirit and energy were as high as can be.

A visit to Cornell University’s Hospital for Animals revealed a right hip luxation and fractures of the pelvis. With the collaboration of Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Program, the local SPCA, and CUHA’s orthopedic service, Abe was able to receive the necessary surgical treatment for his hip. The extensive post-operative and nursing care helped Abe recover very quickly from his hip surgical procedure and his castration. Within several days, he was able to walk as if nothing has ever happened!

Abe continues to wag his tail and flood his caregivers with kisses. Abe is currently up for adoption and we know his loveable personality and endless fervor for life will soon find him his forever home!
