Guelph, ON (August 23, 2018) – The Guelph Humane Society wanted to share an update to the public who has shown much compassion towards a found dog near Exhibition Park.

At the beginning of August, this sweet Shih Tzu, now lovingly named ‘Royal’, came to us in deplorable condition. When Royal arrived, she was dehydrated and underweight. This gentle senior was suffering from an untreated eye condition, as well as a skin condition which resulted in severe hair loss.

We started treatment immediately. Blood-work revealed that Royal had untreated hypothyroidism, which was causing her hair loss. Royal is already making progress, her eyes are clearer, and skin is slowly improving. Thank you to our generous donors who made this possible!

Royal is now in a foster home with Shelley McCrae, our Canine Care Manager, and is getting the ‘Royal Treatment’. However, she has a long road before she will be well enough to be available for adoption.

Thank you to those who have already donated and if you would like to help Royal and other vulnerable animals, please donate to our Highest Priority needs today
