A handsome chocolate Labrador mix at the Penticton SPCA is winning staff and volunteers’ hearts.
With his dreamy brown eyes and amazing personality, despite the pain from a ligament injury he has suffered with since May, King, requires surgery to repair the soft tissue behind his left hind knee.
“King has such a great personality, despite the pain of the injury, which was left untreated, making walking very painful for him,” said South Okanagan-Similkameen BC SPCA Branch manager Carolyn Hawkins. “He’s so full of love and affection and his tail is always wagging!”
The surgery and related medical costs for King, who is two years old, are expected to exceed $2,500. A non-profit organization, the BC SPCA relies on public donations to carry out its life-saving work helping the province’s most vulnerable animals. After King’s surgery, rehabilitation and recovery, he will be available for adoption into a loving, forever home.
“We just want this handsome fella to have the chance to live an active, pain-free life – he fits his name to a ‘T’! He’ll gladly rule your heart and home,” Hawkins said.
If you can help King and other animals like him at the South Okanagan-Similkameen BC SPCA Branch, you can donate online at spca.bc.ca/medicalemergency or in person at 2200 Dartmouth Dr., Penticton.
