Honey the Horse - Thank you to all the donors who contributed money to help the horse named Honey have a mass near the hoof surgically removed. Twin Pines Veterinary Clinic has received the donations and have set them aside for surgery day. For the safety of the horse, it has been determined to be in Honey's best interest to have the surgery when it warms up a little bit more. Minnesota winters are cold and we want her to recover well. The surgery will occur as soon as it is safe for Honey’s travels, her recovery, and when the surgeons are able. Thank you for your support and well wishes.

Asher was found hiding under a vehicle on election night. Paws for Help vaccinated Asher, payed for the neuter, and ran some blood tests. Unfortunately, he tested positive for Feline Leukemia. He was placed in a foster home so time could tell if his body would fight off the virus. Asher was tested a month later and test showed he was fighting off the virus! After a few more months in his foster home, Asher found an amazing home with a family. The 2 boys enjoy Asher's playfulness and activity. Asher is is thankful that Paws for Help was there for him so he could recover and find his "happily ever after." Click here to watch Asher play in his numerous videos on YouTube.
On July 4th, a police officer found Mishka fending for himself at Banning State Park and brought him to Twin Pines Veterinary Clinic. He was severely underweight and had almost no hair on his body. Mishka spent a month in the clinic's care, responding positively to mange treatments. For the first time in awhile, he had good nutrition and lots of love. With such a successful recovery, Mishka was ready for a forever family. Mishka is thriving in his forever home thanks to the support he got from Dr. Cox and the Paws for Help Program.
Sterling was left at the front door at Twin Pines Veterinary Clinic in a crate covered with a wet towel. No one knew anything about him. The kitty wasn't eating, drinking, nor walking. After x-rays, it was discovered that his hip sustained a traumatic injury. Paws for Help gave Sterling many laser treatments and worked hard to keep him comfortable. After laser treatments, fluids, and lots of love, Sterling started to eat. Little by little, he came out of his crate to socialize with the dogs and cuddle. Thanks to Paws for Help, Sterling is doing great with his new family. After his hip healed, he became the active and playful kitty he was meant to be. Click here for a video narrative of Sterling's story.
A concerned person found this kitty stuck in the ice on her way to drop her children off at school. Our guess is he was thirsty and looking for water. The cat was significantly underweight. He did much better with good meals, warmth, and care. Grayson is approximately one year old and has found his forever home with a loving family. He loves sleeping in the big bed with his person.
Annie wandered onto the property of a kind woman with a peanut butter jar stuck on her head. She brought Annie to the clinic to help remove the jar. Since the woman was not in a position to care for this young cat, Dr. Cox agreed to care for her temporarily until a loving, permanent home could be found. The Paws for Help program helped to make sure Annie was spayed, tested for feline leukemia (negative), and current on her vaccines. Annie was scared and unsure at the beginning, but with time and love, she has come around. Annie is very loved in her family of humans, dogs, and cats. She likes to be petted, talked to, and loves to be surrounded by her family.
