Maxwell Gets His Second Chance With Sedona and ASPCA of NYC


Recently the ASPCA of New York City reached out to Sedona Shepherd for help with a stunningly handsome German Shepherd named Maxwell.  He had been found chained outside with no food, water or shelter on a cold winter day.  His skin was covered with sores that looked like burns and he had a resistant infection.  Through dedicated efforts of the staff at ASPCA, Maxwell recovered and was ready to find a new home.

Maxwell came to Sedona Shepherd in mid-May and he drew great interest from potential adopters.  A week before he was to be adopted, Maxwell developed the life-threatening condition called bloat, and was rushed to emergency care at Crown Veterinary Hospital where they took immediate action and saved his life.  During surgery they also had to remove his spleen.

Maxwell has begun his road to recovery and has settled in nicely into his foster home, with a family that is ready to adopt him as soon as he is healthy.  We were dedicated to giving Maxwell his second chance at life.  Please consider helping us by donating to our special YouCaring fundraiser to help us offset the expensive costs of his emergency surgery.
