Little Rey was brought to our shelter by Auburn Animal Control Officers. Our AVHS Veterinary staff discovered that she was very sick. She was diagnosed with liver disease. Thanks to a wonderful foster home, she is improving and should be ready for adoption in the future. Rey has had many blood tests to determine the cause of her sickness. AVHS wants to thank Phoenix Lab for their partnership in helping to subsidize the cost of her bloodwork. They have been a part of our northwest community since 1989 and an AVHS partner since 2013!
